AEG worked great until a repair man came to fit a new door haldle - then the machine started making steam. E10 error light. Changed one valve and the thing still overheats and makes steam after 20 minutes. The repair man is getting hacked off with coming to look at it. The machine washes perfectly. Please help.
This is worth posting in case anyone else has the problem. The mechanic was stumped and then around 3 days later a Zanussi gave the same problem - steam emitting from the drum. He changed the valve - the entire unit. Problem solved. Zanussi and AEG have identical internals. He changed our valve - problem solved.

E10 is related to water flow and if it isn't due to the 3-way valve being defective there's another common point to check. The back and side cover needs to be removed to get at the condenser that, over time, can fill with fluff and stop the hot air from circulating. It and its connecting pipes can be unclipped and cleaned out.
door locks can be tricky did you replace the complete door assembly with new ? and did you brake the door handle that is why you fitted a new one ? have you also replaced the inner door lock? let me know
I had the same problem and fixed it by replacing the triple valve. One of the inlets passes water to the condenser and this had failed. You can tell this by opening up the top and when the drier starts you here the drain working and then should hear a gentle hiss as the water is let through. If you don't hear anything then after 10 mins you get the E10 error. It cost me £27 which is cheaper than getting a new machine or a call out charge. If you feel competent then all you need is a philips screwdriver, pliers to get the clips off and a flat head driver to remove the rubber hoses.
E10 is an inlet fault.
Check the water valve is turned on. If you are only getting a dribble of water in, then clean the inline filter at the hose inlet.
If no sound of inlet water - replace inlet valve (available as a spare from online stores)
The lock is rubbish on this machine but as a temporary measure you can feed a string down behind the door lock from the top and out the bottom. Then yank it to the left to open the lock. It will take a few tries but you get the hang of it!
We got sick of this so ordered a new lock off the net. I basically had to break the old mechanism to fit the new one because the door layers were so strongly glued together. Now fitted, the lock works perfectly but the machine thinks the door's open the whole time! Next step is either new door or new machine. Great.
