Aeg 52600 Spin Problem

Recommended Posts


I recently bought a second hand Aeg 56200 washing machine which seems to wash and spin OK with clothes in, but struggles to spin anything heavy like towels.

On a cotton cycle when the machine is distributing before the spin starts, the drum doesn't seem to rotate fast enough so that the towels stick to the sides of the drum. Instead, the towels just seem to roll around the drum and end up in a ball. The machine usually spends ages doing this, then just abandons spinning altogether. Occasionally the machine will just start spinning regardless, with the drum assembly hitting the cabinet. This happens even if there are only two towels in it.

Whilst this happens during a full wash cycle, if you set the machine on a separate spin cycle with towels in - it distributes correctly and then spins without any problems. The pump works perfectly and you can hear that all of the water has drained out before it attempts to distribute.

Does this sound like a pcb problem? - or do you reckon it could be motor related?

I've just moved into my first house so I'm trying to avoid the expense of having to buy a new machine!
