    Indesit washing machine drum turns then stops

    A problem with the drain would leave washing machine full of water. It wouldn’t stop the motor from turning, only from kicking into a fast spin. If the motor is struggling to turn it’s likely to be worn brushes at that age. However it also could be caused by faults on the pcb.

    Check the carbon brushes

    It's probably less common these days but it used to be quite common on various different brands. There is a TOC built into the windings of the motor. Sometimes a TOC would cut out, but then cut back in as it cooled down. When it cut back in, if the motor was receiving power it would suddenly surge until the control module regained control. Also, dry joints or overheating issues in the module that controls the speed of the motor could cause this to. And old Hoover and Hotpoint washing machines with mechanical timers used to get a fault on the motor switching switches inside the mechanical timer responsible for reversing the motor during wash and rinse cycles could cause the same fault. However, the nature of the faults I describe tend to manifest in fairly random surges as you can imagine.

    Unfortunately it could be a lot of things. Just check the simple stuff like that the pump filter isn't blocked and the door is closed properly but after that it might need an engineer. Also worth trying it in a different wall socket just in case there's a power issue with it.

    Is the pump running if you put it on a drain or spin program?

    Any chance of a video of it? It’s possible for a fault to cause motor to surge and go out of control intermittently.

    Knocking noise AEG washer dryer

    Possibly. If the noise is caused by the wheel it should make it when you turn the drum with it on. Is it loose on the shaft, or cracked anywhere?

    When it starts a washing machine usually pumps out for a very short time and then tries to take in water. If there’s a fault or there’s no water available it will normally time out with an error. Are you saying you can hear water going in when you start a cycle and then it times out?

    I would hope it mentions it in the instruction manual. Hoover washing machines used to do this about 20 - 30 years ago but they abandoned it I think. A fault could cause it to lose control of the spin. I would say if it goes straight into a spin from standstill and thumps around that’s not right. If it seems fairly controlled and increases speed to gently do a short and slow spin it could be by design.

    Knocking noise AEG washer dryer

    Hello. A knocking noise is often a loose tub weight. If so it should be easy to test by disconnecting washing machine from the mains and taking off the lid. Then move and shake the drum about by hand to see if you can make the noise and locate its source. You might also disconnect the drive belt to ensure that when turning the drum you are only turning the drum and not the motor too. Also check out my comprehensive list of possible causes of a noisy washing machine

    Hello. Are you sure it's supposed to do the high acceleration from rest? If it is part of the programming it should ramp up slowly and shouldn't cause the drum to bang around.

    Brands like this are usually hard to get information for because these brands don't usually actually make the appliances. They get another manufacturer to make them and just put their name on them. From what I can find E21 is a pump draining fault and you need to, check if the pump is blocked". Try this article - How do I clean my pump filter – where is the pump filter? There are links in the article to more comprehensive troubleshooting about washing machine not draining water. If it's nothing to do with the pump being blocked I'd get in an appliance engineer.

    AEG 64840L Error 40 (is not door catch)

    My AEG error code list, which is quite old now, shows E41 as possible faulty door lock. E40 isn't even listed. Not much help but there it is. My advice with many of these error codes is to get an engineer in. With AEG and Zanussi in particular using error codes that implicate far too many possible faults for DIY repair. For example the Error 41 I have listed says - "Door unlocked: Door lock faulty, Wiring faulty, Main (PCB) board faulty, Cycle is paused start" That's way too many possibilities to start speculatively changing parts. It's OK if you are an AEG engineer and have all the parts on your van to try. But buying them - especially the main PCB is just way too much of a gamble, as unfortunately you've found My book (10 years old now) says E52 is - "No signal from motor tachometer generator: Motor faulty, wiring faulty, PCB faulty, Cycle blocked, door locked (after 5 attempts) OFF/reset" As you can see, most unhelpful. It's even a pain for engineers. Here's what I think about appliance error codes - Appliance Error codes – What You Need to Know
