Question about AEG Lavamat 72640 Front Load Washer
I put in a wash as normal, and only realized there was a problem as there was a noise of clicking on the right side,top part of the washing powder drawer which I then took it out and noticed when you take it out it is more loud, and there was no water coming through although it had sounded like the water was going to come through when it was started but realized that it is only the sound. I have cleaned and washed the black coloured pipe and screw top at the bottom of the washing machine. PLEASE HELP!!
Having worked for AEG for over ten years, the fault is a faulty dispenser unit ( top of soap draw) only fix is to replace the unit ( cost approx £45)

It sound like a detergent dispenser issue. The dispenser is located above the detergent drawer. A water pipe is connected to it and water entrance and distributed to drawer's cells (following the programmed cycle) by a lever's movement (part of the dispenser). The lever movement is controlled by two solenoids that received their power from the timer. By opening upper machine's cover you will have an access to the dispenser. Disconnect the power cable from the machine before moving to next test !!!! Look first that they are not any disconnected wires. Move manually dispenser's lever and see if water running to all cells (depend on your movement). In case it doesn't work properly remove the unit from the machine and try to clean it (I hope it will help, otherwise you should replace the unit). In case it works properly (manually) - you should test by a multi-tester solenoid's resistance. the one that doesn't have a resistance measurement should be replaced. Good luck !!
