Question about AEG Lavamat 16810 Front Load Washer/Dryer
Hi from retired Englishman in SW France,
Was the blockage you cleared in the filter or in the drain hose? If it was in the hose I would gently suggest as a first step that you check/clean the drain motor lint tray/filter then check the performance of the drain motor.
Here are my complete guidance notes for checking both the drain motor filter and the drain motor ;-0)
If you are unsure where the filter is, it is often behind the front lower (kick) panel (or in some machines at the rear in an awkward position!) and most are held in by a round cover/knob. Sometimes the filter will not come out with the cover and you will have to persuade it to come out to play!
REMOVE POWER AND ENSURE YOU HAVE A WATER RECEPTACLE/RAGS TO SOAK UP THE WATER WHICH IS BOUND TO POUR OUT!
It's surprising what people have found in theirs! It is always worthwhile checking it on a regular basis.
Now- whilst the filter is removed it is normally possible to see the drain motor and ensure it is not jammed by a foreign object such as a needle or a toothpick. It should be able to be turned by hand/finger- the power IS OFF!
At this point it is also possible to test if the motor works. No clothes or water in the machine, select a spin cycle and put the power back on. You should be able to see the motor turning at some point, possibly straight away. You can check its power by wearing a glove or other protection and seeing if it is very easy to stop. If it is the motor is malfunctioning!
Hope the filter is the problem and good luck!
