Question about AEG Lavamat 16810 Front Load Washer/Dryer

3 Answers

Lavamat 16820 Hi there I have had a lavamat turbo 16820 since 2004 without problems. But a couple of months ago I kept getting Error E20 when doing the DRYING cycle only. There was no problem with the draining or hoses and I then used it only on the wash cycle and after a few washes it started drying again. Again, last week started getting the E20 error messages and also now when washing it sounds as if there is a scratching noise on the outside of the drum and it makes a strange whistling sound when it lets water into the machine whilst washing. I have opened the emergency drain and checked the pump but there is nothing lodged in it. Any idea as to whether I should now call out an AEG service engineer?

    "remove the lid and remove the back panel, 4 screws at the bottom + 4 up top under the lid. pull the water pipe with the valve out of the way and pull back panel away"

    I wasn't able to manage this. I removed all the screws, but wasn't able to pull the back panel away, it seem to be one piece. Can anybody help?

    thanks, Haik

The reason the machine is coming up with E20 when drying.
is that there is a blockage of fluff in the dryer air duct on the right hand side of the machine just below the fan unit.
the air that goes through this duct is heated and returns back to the tub to dry the clothes. because there is a blockage in this duct the fan pushes air up the pressure switch tubes and fools the machine in to thinking that there is too much water in the drum,
too remove this blockage you have to disconnect the power supply, remove the lid and remove the back panel, 4 screws at the bottom + 4 up top under the lid. plull the water pipe with the valve out of the way and pull back panel away.
you should now see the dryer condensor unit blocked up with fluff. remove this unit and clean with bottle brush.
replace and make sure hoses are done up tight. replace back panel and lid, try again on drying and things should be alot better, drying should be alot quicker as well.

In some models of the Lavamat Turbo (maybe only the Euopean ones?), there is no back panel mentioned by mediarich, but the whole back half of the lavamat is one piece of metal instead.

To remove this, you have to follow these steps:
- remove ALL screws that you can find at the back side
- take the top lid away
- when you look inside, you can see some kind of steal beam at the top; remove the first two screws (from backside view) that are in this beam at each side
- remove the white plastic screw covers at the SIDE bottom of the lavamat (one each side)
- remove the screws that are under the white plastic covers (one each side)
- remove the plastic holder at the top that contains the water pipe and the cable (it is only clicked in, you can remove it with your fingers)

->pull the whole back half of the housing backwards

In my case, the dryer condensor unit was at the LEFT side (some kind of transparent/white plastic).

This maschine sucks! Usually, AEG/Electrolux stands for quality, but with this mascine it ist the opposite, really.
The door plastic lock part broke after only a few months (Fixed it with a gas solder and a couple of thin nails through the plastic door and the broken part).
The common E20 error code came a few weeks later, due to the pump itself (the bearings in the "propeller" housing have a lousy quality). The guarantee was out, of couse. Now it works again (at least the most of the time). well. it was a "cheap" machine, so what could I await......

Another AEG e20 Plea, tried everything please help!


E20 on your machine means some sort of drain problem. If it actually goes through the spin cycle fine; some water will still not drain out at the time of the tumble dry. Check the wall drain to make sure it isn't clogged..


Check the drain of your wall, not the washer, this shd be cleaned out thoroughly; and the exit pipe of your washer should not fit too tight into it, there shd be some space for air.


This is a further tip, if helped click helped.

Washing cycle does not complete and I get error E20 with beeps


The E20 error means that the thermistor resistance has drifted or the temperature scanning sequence is incorrect. The ambient temperature could be below freezing.

Check the thermistor and associated wiiring for correct resistance and operation and replace if required.

E20 message


Hi Helenw,
The error message E20, simply means the filter plastic cage which is located behind the trap door bottom right side of the machine is full and needs to be cleaned out.
All the fibres and lint gets trapped in here and prevents the waste water from escaping, hence Error code E20.

Regards,
David

E20 During Drying Cycle


if the wash cycle runs ok then unlikely to be the drain pump or hoses. put drain hose into a bucket and check waster comes out during dry - it wont be large amounts of water. can you hear the drain pump running during the dry cycle?
