Hi Kevin. It's model no. 16830. AEG Elecrolux Lavamat turbo. Don't know how old it is, but maybe 7 years? In the manual it says it's the water supply but there doesn't seem to be a problem there as it does the wash, rinse and spin cycle ok. It's just the tumble drier that isn't working. Thanks. Linda

OK what happens if you run the washer on cold wash only cycle ?

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
Hi. It is a cold fill machine and I use a 40-60o mix wash. The wash cycle works fine. It just won't do the tumble dry. I'll try a cold wash and dry and see what happens. Thanks

OK if it works fine on cold wash then it is the heating element that will need replacement... let me know how it goes

I have switched the control to a cold wash then tried to add a tumble dry programme but it won't accept the drying cycle. It just says error. Thanks
Expert:  KevinWhiteJA replied 1 year ago.

it wont accept drying cycle because of bad heating element ... if the heater was fine it would have worked on drying cycle

Hi. I've had my machine fixed today and it was the water supply valve that needed replacing.
