My aeg lavamat turbo 16830 starts and then stops in a few

This answer was rated:

My aeg lavamat turbo 16830 starts and then stops in a few seconds, no error code and within the few seconds it seemed to do the right job. This happens to all the preset wahsing options.


Lets see what the error code is stored in there.

Set the washer going on a cycle and then press and hold the 2 buttons on the far left above each other.

Hold them both in and after a few seconds the error code should flash up E??

Let me know the code.

The third number was not displayed properly

No worries, As the E50 error code family this is a fault with the motor side on these.

What you need to do is check the motor and at the back of it are the carbon brushes. Remove these and see if they have worn. If so then you need to replace these.

But if the carbon brushes are fine then im afraid its either the motor itself or the control board thats the fault here.

But check the brushes first and see what you find from there.
