Question about AEG Washing Machines

1 Answer

Fuse blowing following new motor being fitted

Our 10 yr old AEG washing machine needed to have the motor replaced. Since the new motor was installed I have tried to use the washer, it's fuse in the splitter box blows (not sure of it's correct name). Both the washer and drier are plugged into this box, each unit having it's own 15amp fuse in the box, before being connected to our 220V connection. The drier has not been affected. This happens about 10 minutes approx into the cycle. When the fuse was replaced the first time, the machine succesfully span, drained etc, but something is happening at the front end of the cycle to cause this fuse to blow. It's now happened twice. The repair man just wants to put a bigger fuse in the "splitter box", but I'm concerned that there is more to be addressed in the actual machine. Can anyone help.

    Thanks for such a speedy response. How do I investigate the potentially differing amperages of the two motors? Your comments about simply replacing the fuse with a bigger one without further investigation alludes to my concerns.

    Good morning Todd



    There is a green paper label on the old motor, it reads as follows:

    AEG

    UZ 112 G 63

    4J 083653 129 F3 1298

    220-240V 50Hz Iskl.B/F

    S,-Nr 645 256 280

    SBP 645 260 820/17



    The only bit of that information that I can interpret is the 220-240V!



    I can't get to the new motor as it is already installed. I will have to ask someone to move it for me and when I get in from work I will unscrew the back panel and see if I can find a similar label.



    If you can tell me how to interpret the amperage from the above information, I might be able to find the same on the new label (assuming it's visible).



    Regards

Hello Joanna,

Unfortunately the motor data does not give the current rating, only the voltage.
The circuit breaker would trip if the current is too high or overloaded. The voltage is not the issue.

I have checked the AEG and Electrolux sites who made this motor but to no avail.

Can I ask, whether your washing machine has a water pre-heat function, and are you using that function? I am thinking that maybe the new motor consumes higher current than the old motor, so it may be tripping the circuit breaker on its own. But the water pre-heat only operates in the first cycle.

I hope I haven't confused you.

One resort would be to ring the repairer and ask them the current ratings of both motors, explaining the problem you have.

Let me know your thoughts.
Regards,
Richard

On my AEG Lavamat 62810 washing machine, when I start a wash cycle the motor (pump?) runs for 10–20 seconds then the machine switches off, with no error message and no water having entered the machine....


inside the waasher there is a fill level valve i think its blocked up with "gunk" if you look inside the washer you should see a small pipe from the bottom of the drum going up to a round type of valve with lots of wires fitted to it at the top of the washer,,,pull the pipe off this valve and "blow hard" down through it,,any "gunk" should be pushed out and the washer should wook ok after that,,,if it dont change the valve!!!

AEG washing machine stops without heating


Check your exit hose spigot, it may be clogged. This is if your filter is all clean. There should be air for passage in the standpipe behind. Your hose should not fit airtight into the standpipe and neither too deep into it. Snaking out your standpipe would be good too. Check out yr user's manual.

Rate me pl.....if helped.
