I also have problems with AEG Lavalogic 1600. It is caused by the control knob and the poor contacts. One service repair person fixed it and lasted 1 month. Then the problem reappeared. Now, I turn on the knob and the machine does not turn on, but I push lightly the button, not to a full path, just to cause a contact and it starts.

    I had a similar problem with a LL1600 (no power). The solution was to replace one of the two microswitches that was broken. These switches are located behind the control knob. These can be easily tested using a multimeter.

    Yes, you are right. Do you know the part number for those switches? Are they specific to AEG? I assume you mean the two contacts that connect the pairs of 2 brown and 2 blue wires to the control knob. The thick wires, not the thin blue multiple wires of low voltage.
    In my case, I seem to have power on the switches with no startup sequence, but maybe the contacts of the knob are problematic. I'm thinking about corrosion that might have impacted. I see some white spots on the tiny metal contacts inside the microswitches. It seems that mechanical friction with the screwdriver, although it does not change their position to say that it will increase the contact points, increases the odds to startup the machine, like I may be removing some oxide from metals.

  • cmc_ge_123 Aug 28, 2011

    So, with this in mind (the previous reply) and with some research on the contact life of relays and switches, unless they are made of gold (it does not appear to be gold in this AEG, it is only used in high reliability appliances) the oxide film that is produced by air and moisture (which is plenty inside the machine) requires large contact surface for the current to break through. However, by design, the AEG has very tiny contacts inside the switches with the much larger electrical contacts of the knob.
    So, first thing I will try is to get a contact cleaner in form of aerosol can and deoxidize the contacts (like a 10$ a minispray).

    There are two micro-switches, one for Live and one for Neutral. They are no longer produced by Saia Burgess. There are some a bit more compatible but they will not fit the plastic system inside the control board. Either try to find them on eBay (I saw some 1-2 years ago), or do my method: install ordinary switches that you control while pressing the main button.

The best way to check is to remove the belt, and spin the drum by hand.
If it feels rough or is rumbling, then the main bearings have failed.

Water will not drain properly leaving a very wet load ... screen says drainagae blocked

Check two things:
Clean your strainer, located behind the kick panel at the lower front of the machine. It will be in between the drum and the pump, and will have a lid that unscrews.
Check your Drain Hose: The easiest way is to remove it from the house drain, and empty it into a bucket. If at all possible, point it outside and run a cycle with fresh water only.
The strainer will probably fix you up, and usually makes the clothes smell better too.
