AEG Lavamat 8kg, doesn't respond to the cycle options. Tried

This answer was rated:

Hi, AEG Lavamat 8kg, doesn't respond to the cycle options. Tried draining, cleaning filter, rotating the impeller 360 degrees, Spin cycled to confirm impeller works etc. But when trying Drain cycle, the machine doesn't run. As for all commands, there is an initial 'buzz' when Start is pressed, but then nothing else happens apart from the timer decreasing. No error code either. Have managed to run the Easy Linen 40 cycle only... Please help. Many thanks, Paul.

This is a bad main control board as you may have already suspected.

Its easy to replace if you have a few basic tools and are just a little handy. And I will help when you have that part no additional cost for that.

The best place to get that board for cost and reliability is :

I would really call to order this board for many reasons. ALso if you call them, they will ship that part the same day in most cases.

Hi Michael, that's for your response. How do I ensure that I order the correct part?

Hi, I'm on the Random Spares website. Do you mean the part called 'PCB Configured'? As in it looks as though it would sit behind the control knob?

I'm getting confused with this website. It seems I've now misread that I have to Rate your service up front, but then that has seemed to have completed my request!?
