Drum has dropped/is not aligned with opening.
I've had the same problem. The drum is held in place by a spring attached to a hole which forms part of the drum. If the hole where the the spring was has broken off, you'll have to get a new drum!!!!! A bad design for a machine which was very expensive. Mine even shows a message if it's been overloaded! Complained to AEG, naturally, they didn't want to know.
AEG washing machine error code
E40 relates to the door being left open when the programme is started, it maybe that the latch was not pushed over when the door was shut.After the door is closed again the fault should go away. If it does not and you hear alot of clicking from the door lock you may just have a door lock at fault.Code E40 is door not closed, could be a mis-aligned door or faulty door switch.-------------But if door is closing properly and you are confirmed that door is getting properly locked, then other possibility can be gunked filter or blocked drain pump.It requires cleaning internally.The procedure is as follows:---
Towards the bottom right of the machine is a pull-down flap.
Drain the machine - there's a tube at the bottom of the machine
with a plastic plug - you'll see a butterfly handle, pull hard; the plug
is a round ball on the end of a stick.
Unscrew the large diameter thing (pump cover) -
Don't do this before the drain step!!!
Withdraw the filter cylinder and remove any gunge - the
filter port has two ports - the left one is the impellor
pump and the right one is the discharge pipe; feel to ensure
these are not gunged up either.
Reassemble in reverse order - as Haynes say.
Almost every programme necessitates a pump activation to
assure that the machine is empty of water .-----------
