Hello, my name is George..
Have a look in the filter to see if anything is preventing the pump from working.
Kindly be patient whilst awaiting any responses from me as I'm not constantly available.
Customer: replied 2 years ago.
ok will look at this thank you - what else might it be or is this the most likely - why am I getting no error up?
Expert:  George-Allsorts replied 2 years ago.
The fact that the washing machines first part of the cycle is to pump and you have not mentioned that it is doing so is possibly a lead to what is wrong with it.
Other likelihoods are the motor brushes or the heater, although the appliance is only 2 years old so I would have thought brushes less likely.
If motor brushes or heater element are the problem, then it is very possible that you may not get an error code.
You say there is a noise, what noise?
Try running the diagnostics

The machine is 2 months old and the noise is the pump (I believe) and yes it starts pumping and the stops after a few seconds .... And then nothing - so good logic - thank you - will get access to the filter and see ūüĎć
Expert:  George-Allsorts replied 2 years ago.
The Drain out issue would normally give you an E20 series error after 2 attempts, and the system will pause.
The sequence is usually:
Door lock
Pump out
Water fill
If there is no water entering the appliance, then you would normally receive an E10 error... and the system will pause the cycle with the door still locked
Check to see if the cycle is pausing...
If the appliance is warrantied then avoid all temptations to open the appliance casing as this could invalidate your warranty.
I will be in and out of here during today, so please leave me a message and I'll respond to you as soon as I can.

got to the filter and unscrewed it - all clean - moved the impellar and it was ok - switched the machine back on and the impellar span but then stopped after 3 seconds with same results........ so do you advise I go to AEG dorect as under warranty
Expert:  George-Allsorts replied 2 years ago.
I certainly do... This is about as far as we can go without voiding your warranty...
