The top 5 errors of AEG washing machines

If your AEG washing machine gives an error before, during, or after a cycle, that's a bummer. A lot of these errors can be fixed. The AEG washing machine usually shows an error notification or a code on the display. In this article, you can read what they mean and how you can fix them. You can reset your washing machine, for example.

AEG error EF0

This error indicates that the protection system against leaks has been activated. This could be because of a leak, or because you used too much detergent. This results in too much foam, which will then spill over onto the base plate and cause this notification.

How can I fix this?

  • Switch off the washing machine and disconnect it from the power grid. Switch the machine back on and see if the notification has disappeared. If the notification has disappeared, run an empty cycle at the highest temperature.
  • If the notification hasn't disappeared, disconnect the device from the power grid and close the faucet. Contact your point of purchase or AEG itself right away.

AEG error E10

The washing machine can't get enough water fast enough to run a cycle.

How can I fix this?

  • Open the faucet fully.
  • Check if there's a blockage or a kink in the inlet hose. Replace the hose if necessary.
  • Check if there's any water coming from the faucet.

AEG error E20

The washing machine can't drain the water in the drum. This could be due to a blocked drain filter or a different drain-related problem.

How can I fix this?

  • Clean the drain pump filter.
  • Make sure the washing machine doesn't have to pump the water further than 1 meter upwards.

AEG error E40

The washing machine has a sensor in the door to check whether it's closed when you start a cycle. This error notification indicates the door is still open or isn't fully closed. Close the door of the washing machine properly.

AEG error EH0

There's a problem with the power supply.

How can I fix this?

  • Check the washing machine's socket. Is another appliance able to draw power from this socket?
  • Disconnect the washing machine from the power grid for 30 minutes to reset the machine. Connect it again and see if the error code has disappeared.

Didn't fix the issue?

You can't fix all errors yourself. If the listed tips didn't offer a solution, you'll need a mechanic:

  • Did you buy the washing machine from us? Contact our Customer service right away. We're happy to help you.
  • Did you buy the washing machine somewhere else? Contact the point of purchase or AEG.
