If you have been using too much detergent in your AEG washing machine, then this might cause excessive foaming. If this has occurred, then the best thing to do is to switch off your appliance and then leave it until the foam has subsided. Try the appliance again once you have got the all-clear.

If the machine is still displaying a problem, then a washing machine engineer may be required to inspect for further faults.

People often opt to use liquid detergents that are inserted inside the washing machine drum to avoid detergent or limescale clogging up the dispenser drawer. If you have been adding detergent into the dispenser drawer, or notice that the sprinkler plate over the drawer is dirty or suffering from limescale marks, then this may impact the washing machines ability to allow water to flow through it.

When this has happened, you should clean the dispenser drawer out in accordance with the user manual and try the appliance again. You can download the user manual here. If you are still experiencing problems after you have done this, then you may need one of our washing machine engineers to resolve the issue.

Clear the fluff filter

Check if your fluff filter is clean in accordance with the AEG user manual. While doing this, inspect it to see if your filter is damaged. Remember to tighten it well when refitting it.
