AEG LAVAMAT 74620 Update Gears on the fill tray have jumped. The primary and idler have to be installed correctly and are fool proof but the third, half gear, needs setting. Can you please supply pic or instructions as to what position this should be?

Found this on another site (fixed4free.com) posted by Dave in Jan 2009:

This is one of those things where a picture would be worth a thousand words, but as I can't put pictures on this site, the words will have to do!
- Turn the orange cog anti-clockwise as far as it will go, (putting the nozzle to direct the water to the conditioner drawer)
- Look closely at the orange cog and you'll see that the last-but-one tooth at each end of the row is shorter than the rest. Looking from above and standing at the front of the machine, I call the rightmost tooth on this cog number 1, the short tooth number 2 etc. (my cog has 17 teeth)
- Position the white cog so that (looking from above) the leftmost tooth on the top (incomplete) row of this cog is between teeth 2 and 3 of the orange cog. This should be such that if the white cog rotates anti-clockwise it will turn the orange cog.
Now the difficult bit:
- The shaft that the yellow cog fits on has four vertical 'webs' running down it. Look closely and you'll see that one of these is bigger than the other three. As you would expect, if you look carefully at the centre of the yellow cog it has three small slots and one bigger one spaced around the hole.
- This shaft can be VERY CAREFULLY rotated if you pull it gently upwards against it's spring and wiggle it while twisting it. NEVER force it, the cogs underneath are VERY fragile. If it won't turn, just let go, and try again.
- Look again at the white cog, and you'll see that two of the teeth on the lower (complete) set of teeth have no slot between them, they make a tooth that is 'double width'.
- Look at the yellow cog and you'll see that it has a 'double width' slot on it's lower row.
- The challenge is to rotate the yellow cog's shaft so that you can fit the yellow cog on it, aligning the double-width slot on the yellow cog with the big tooth on the white cog. This is just a case of trial and error, but is the key to getting everything back together.

COMPLICATED BIT OF EXPLANATION!!
The yellow cog only ever turns clockwise and the white cog is a clever bit of engineering allowing AEG to move the nozzle (orange cog) backwards and forwards across the five positions.
The yellow cog turns the orange cog anti-clockwise until it runs out of teeth, then the white cog turns the orange cog the other way.
After a full rotation of the yellow cog, the orange one has moved clockwise to the stain-treatment position and the by-pass beyond, then anti-clockwise back to the conditioner position.

I need to replace the water pump og AEG Lavamat 74620 (1998)


So do it. there are two. one to recycle and one to exhaust. they are close to each other in the front bottom left hand corner of the casing below the drum and behind the lower front panel that contains the filter and drain. though it's far easier to get at them by removing the thing from situ and taking the back off.

Replace pump in aeg 74620


Remove the front panel. usually requires top off. powder tray out. and front lower drain/filter panel off. and then you can get to front panel screws front panel will still be attached by door seal sometimes there's enough movement to still get to pumps without removing it otherwise if you think you can get it back on remove that from the door lip and remove the front panel. the pumps are at the bottom left near where the pump filter door was. remove the relevant one. the recycler is attached to the pipe that goes straight back up to the top of the drum. the other is attached to the outlet pipe which heads off to the back of the cabinet

My AEG lavamat 74620 doesnt fill up with water


Hello,
This means your water sensor has detected a leak. it will stop when the sensor is dry.
Try getting the water out of the trap door and letting the machine dry.

I would also unplug it for secirity reasons.

Basically your water pump is getting tired or the sensor is dirty. Try cleaning the sensor or else you may have to change the pump.

Good Luck!!

AEG LAVAMAT 74620 shows "CE" error


I fixed it, but I still don't know for sure what the "CE" error code is. I guess it is for the water distributor. I opened it up. There are some gears in there that move a mechanical arm that distributes the water into different containers. The mechanical arm moves around an axis -- it was very difficult to move, so the gears kept slipping. I opened it, and put some greaze inside. Closing it up was a real pain. But it works, and I didn't have to wait around to receive a new distributor.

AEG Lavamat 72640 Front Load Washer


are the holes that spray out the water partially blocked? if so the water will spray out at every angle filling all the tray slots. try popping out the soap tray and cleaning above it with a stiff washing up brush and then reducing the water pressure by turning the tap off a bit.
