Where is the filter for die AEG lavamat 538 washing machine and how do you clean it?


The only filter/screen I am familiar with is the one in the hoses the supply hot and cold water to your machine. They should be checked once in a while but I have never found much in them.

However, the manual for your machine is located here:

I’m happy to help further over the phone at

Hot water not coming into washing machine

The solenoid valve that lets hot water into unit is not opening. Check out the valve itself and the timer cam that feeds power to the cam.

Washer not filling with water

Hi Karen. Problem may be the internal "tap" that operates electrically. First test - If you are trying for a cold wash, try a hot wash. If maching begins to fill you know this tap is your problem. There are 3 solutions if this is the case
1) swap hot and cold water hoses at the tap and tell machine to do a hot wash - only good if you only want cold washes
2) check where hoses connect to machine at rear - sometimes a fine mesh filter that has become clogged - may be at either end.
3) Replace the internal "tap"(solinoid). This "tap" has a rubber diaphram inside that may become stuck if the machine has not been used for a while. it can be easily dismantled and reasembled by a handyman.

Even when the machine is set to cold it pulls in hot

not sure on that one most machines are cold fill now,,think it is to do with the valves been closed , even though the machine is in a cold wash it registers a fault when any of the valves are closed

Fuse tripped switched on again mache continues cycle but washing cold

Hi from retired Englishman in SW France,

It sounds by your comments that it is a cold fill only else I suspect you would have said ' not washing hot enough'. If it was a hot and cold fill, because rinses are normally cold anyway you probably would be unable to tell it was washing cold- unless the garments are not coming out clean;-0)
I would suggest that the heating element has 'malfunctioned' which would probably account for the fuse blowing/switch tripping so I would suspect that first. Fuses/switches don't react by themselves; they are forced to by faults of course.

Good luck,

Washing maching won't rinse in cold water

hi is this hot and cold water piped machine? ie two connections on rear of machine for hot and cold pipes ? if so are your pipes connected properly on machine and the water supplies? if cold supply is connected to hot supply then wash inlet allows water in washer then washes in cold? but when rinse is due? the elec valve that has hot water pipe connected?? is failing to open allowing water flow of hot on rinse so advise recheck pipes for flow of water from both? when disconnected from machine if flow ok then possible valve blocked/faulty hope you can understand above? if you can give more info on your machine it would help to offer a remedy?

Yes. There is a part that allows you to connect the cold water supply to both the hot and cold inlet hoses. It has worked successfully on our 6100 for 8 years or so. I think it was part of the original kit rather than a subsequent purchase - it's a Y-shaped yoke with an inlet connection and two outlets that accept the two hoses feeding the inlets of the machine. From memory i tink the situation is mentioned in the user manual somewhere.

Fisher and Paykel MW051 washing machine.

If you can stop it with your thumb there is NO DOUBT it is water pressure.. Pull the hose and check the tap direct, that will tell you if you have a plumbing problem of just a funky hose...
Good luck
