Question about AEG Washing Machines

1 Answer

I bought a new AEG L64840L about 2 months ago, it was ok but for some reason when on say a 1200 spin the machine has developed all sorts of vibration noises? When on an 800 spin there doesnt seem to be a such a problem i called AEG today and they seem to think its because im not filling the drum with enough washing and to check the pump filter. the machine is perfectly level on a concrete floor

Hi from retired Englishman in SW France

Although you say it's level I would recommend you try my method to make absolutely certain before considering something inside.

It is necessary to ensure absolutely that the machine, even when empty, has all 4 feet very firmly on the floor, and I mean firmly ;-0)

Doesn't matter whether it is empty or not but switch it off then-
very firmly push one front corner diagonally into the centre of the machine (sorry about my UK spelling!) and see if the machine moves or rocks AT ALL, even the slightest. If it does you will need the open-ended spanner which came with the (new) machine........which of course went missing a long time ago?!! An adjustable spanner will suffice.
Adjust the foot under that corner downwards until it is very firmly- almost pushing- against the floor but not so far that the corner lifts up!
If this corner did not rock do the same to the other.
Once you cannot rock the machine the slightest little bit, screw the locking nuts up tight to the underside of the machine so that they will not move. Ideally the rear feet should also be locked.

If this has not cured the problem it is possible that the internal drum suspension is malfunctioning.

Good luck,

John C

How do you get it on to spin as i have just put a new one bought today o a cycle and it wont spin.

Ok I believe your referring to a washer machine. But I would suggest to review user manual, and if all else fails I would call in for service, cause your machine is still under warranty.

Aquarius WMA40 - drum rattles. Even when empty and turned by hand, but most significantly and scarily on spin. Occasionaly bangs loudly

Disconnect the machine from the power and water supply and open the access panel on the back. You'll see a drive belt engaging onto a large wheel which is bolted to the drum. Turn the machine by hand (watch your fingers!) and check for loose parts.

If that's all OK then the the drum bearings have likely failed. The parts are relatively cheap, but unless you are an experienced mechanic it's definitely not a DIY job. Even for a pro it's a bit of a pig, as the old bearing does not come out easily and removing or refitting can ruin the outer drum. If the shaft seal is damaged the machine will leak, and whilst repairing the machine it's easy to break the cast alloy drum spider.

Customers tend not to be pleased when the job goes wrong or entails extra work for reasons beyond the control of the repairer, and professional repairers have a high chance of a non-paying recall if the machine leaks afterwards or if the new bearing didn't go in perfectly squarely. Officially the answer is to fit a complete new drum assembly which is not cheap.

On Merloni Group appliances like yours, the bearings tend to only just last the expected 5 year maximum design lifespan (4 years or less for 1200 spin speed models), and when they fail you can usually expect many other components to be worn out and waiting to fail. Replacement bearings don't last anywhere near as long, typically about 9 months to 2 years at best.

Your machine is likely about 7 years old now, so the best option is to chuck it away and buy another. Preferably not Merloni Group (Hotpoint, Cannon, Indesit, Creda) as they're all unreliable. German machines are generally very good, as are Samsung, although in recent years Bosch are no longer anywhere near as reliable as they once were, although the closely-related Siemens machines which use most of the same parts are still good as are AEG and Miele.

Merloni might be relatively cheap, but you end up buying them twice as often as machines which don't cost twice as much.

Won't drain or spin out

Unless your front loader is set firmly on concrete and leveled to perfection, the force of a heavy wash load spinning in excess of 1000rpm will create a bit of vibration and noise.A firm footing is your best defense against to much movement.

Water not pumping out and therefore no spinning occurs

Hi, just solved the same problem with our aeg lavamat w 1020. Try checking the filter tray (or port) at the bottom left-hand corner of your machine. This was our problem and as soon as the blockage was removed the machine could be pumped out. It appears to be running OK now.
