Question about AEG Lavamat W1050 Front Load Washer

1 Answer

Washing powder residues left in washing powder compartment.

The AEG 50400 machine we have has a selective powder compartment jet spray system, which isn't working effectively in that some of the water jets are not working ( I have cleaned all the jets). The user manual says for possible causes 1. Water tap not fully open..IT IS. 2. Inlet hose filter is blocked..IT ISN'T.3inlet valve filter is blocked..can't see and valve filter?? The pressure is 5 Bar and the water jets are not powerful but only just about sufficient to clear most (but not all) of the powder. I this a known defect with this machine and if so is there a work around please?

    Already checked out water supply filter as described.. All clear so not that.

    Sadly having suffered much female verbal abuse, (I am "supposedly" a mechanical engineer, I have instructed the local AEG supplier to come and fix it.. Yeah ok, it's going to cost about £200 I expect. But a chap can only stand so much!

    Thanks all

5 bar is a good pressure. worth while to check the valve filter as suggested. turn off water, remove hoses from machine. look down valve spigot and there is a mesh filter inset. remove with small pliers and clean

My aeg lavamat 73620 fills water in the wrong compartment. How do I take out the powder-dosing unit to clean it?

with all the machines ive had you pull it out and lift it up at the same time, then give it a good wash when you put it back you have it upright and slowly lower it as you push it in, don't try and force it.

7-years old Kitchenaid dishwasher does not flush out all detergent powder

This is a water flow problem. You need to check the spray bars to see if any food is stuck in the jets and also you need to check the pump to make sure that there is nothing in the sump or the impellors that could cause it to loose pressure.

Where do i put washing powder in hotpoint aquarius 1000 three compartments in drawer what solutions go in what compartment

with experience, put powder in the first, softner in the middle second, pre wash in the third, but with that model i find its always best to use a liquid or gel direct into the machine, it makes the life of the machine last longer, also stops any build up residue

Put washing powder in tray ,machine doing wash but leaving large residue of powder

Don't put the powder in the tray. Select you wash cycle, let the water run into the washing machine, then add the powder.The powder should dissolve before you put your clothes inside the machine. Let the washing machine fill up to almost half way and add clothes. This should stop the clothes from getting the residue powder on it.

AEG Lavamat 72640 Front Load Washer

are the holes that spray out the water partially blocked? if so the water will spray out at every angle filling all the tray slots. try popping out the soap tray and cleaning above it with a stiff washing up brush and then reducing the water pressure by turning the tap off a bit.
