Customer Question

I have an AEG electrolux lavamat turbo and the door won't open. I've tried turning the machine on and off but still the door won't open (the machine is empty and not in use). Can I arrange for a technician to come out and inspect/fix?

Hi Michael, I tried turning the power off a few times, still the door would not open. Thanks

Expert:  Michael replied 2 years ago.
Hi Wendy thanks for trying that.
This means the unit will need a new door interlock. They do fail from time to time.
Did you want a source for the part?
Also did you want to replace this part yourself?
Thank you

Customer: replied 2 years ago.

Yes please, if you could give me a source for the part it would be great.


 


I'll see if I can replace myself, but if you do have any details of persons in London who I could call out if it looks too challenging that would also be much appreciated.


 


Many thanks!
