AEG 78160 error code E20

Recommended Posts


I have an AEG 78160 that is used by a number of my tenants.  It is showing error code E20 when I switch it on.  I cannot find any debris or kinks in the tube and the drain motor impeller spins freely.

Is it likely to be the drain motor or the control board that has gone please?  Is there a way to determine the problem? Can I hook the motor up to 240v and check that it spins and conclude that it is a control board problem if it does?

Unfortunately all the error codes I have for AEG washing machines don't use E20. 

Need a repair or spare parts?
