Question about Washing Machines
SOURCE: Spin cycle wont work and
It doesn't pump or spinIf it doesn't pump water out or spin, check to see if the motor is running, then proceed as follows:

OVER CURRENT ERROR – Display shows 8E.
IPM fault signal (this is caused by the overload of the MICOM INTO during motor action).
IPM: Integrated power module. The IPM controls the motor.
If the fault (low signal) happens to be sensed even once during the washing/rinsing stage, the motor stops immediately. However, during the dehydrating stage the signal is to be sensed, when the number of signals reads more than 6 per 500ms during the Washing or Rinsing cycle action.
If the motor stops working, in one direction ten times, “8E” Error is displayed.
During dehydrating, when the overload is sensed, the motor stops working at once and then feeds back to the initial stage of the dehydration unbalance sensing. When the feed back has occcurred twice, Error “8E” is displayed during the dehydrating unbalance sensing, No error happens by overload sensing. When it happens at more than 800rpm, the process is stopped compulsorily. Power SIW OFF can clear the overload error.
would advise calling a tech... hope this helps.

the AE code means that there is water in the base I found that the steam heater element in mine was leaking so after a quick repair using silicon and a good clean after drying the water out of the base it now works again
PS I used to be a washing machine repair engineer! I wouldn't suggest that you start opening up your washing machine!!!!

Hi from retired Englishman in SW France,
There is likely to be a problem with either the door solenoid/lock or the 'door closed' sensor. Either require a service engineer's attention I suggest ;-0(
If this has assisted and/or clarified the situation for you please consider a 4 thumbs up on our rating.
Thanks and good luck!

Temp too high on low temp washesNormally this will be the wash temperature thermistor or NTC that's faulty, please contact us if you need the thermistor with the model and serial number.
