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.

post further comment for more help......

Although this is way past the posted date I thought I'd post it anyways, I found that water had accumulated in the base of the washing machine, so I removed the back plate and soaked up all the water and used a hair drier briefly just to be sure. Apparently there is a sensor at the very bottom of the machine to prevent flooding.

Hi from retired Englishman in SW France,

According to my list for AEG Lavamat washers, 'C3' stands for 3 possible causes 1 'safety flood device operated' (I suspect it means that it has sensed some water in the bottom tray. Not an easy job to do but I would check for a leak underneath), 2 'pump fault' and 3 'module fault'. Sorry I can not be of more help ;-0(

If this has assisted you please consider a 4 thumbs up for the rating.
Thanks and good luck!

My washing machine AEG lavamat 86800 (1998) blinks C9 and says no centrifuging and pre-wash. Thank you J.


1) Hold in the Pre-wash & soaking buttons TOGETHER;
2) At the same time, turn the knob clockwise from the OFF position, to "Short Spin". All the LEDS light up.
3) turn the knob anti-clockwise to "energy saving"
4) Machine is reset and the door release clicks.

Switch your machine off and then back on again.

I have had the same problem. If you switch the machine to off and then to cotton/linen 95, then press at the same time prewash, soaking, qick wash and stain buttons for 10 seconds switch it off. When I switched it on it worked.
