AEG Dishwashers - Recent Questions, Troubleshooting & Support

We had this a while back on ours. For us it meant that the flood prevention system had kicked in. I took the metal panel at the bottom at the front off and sucked out water with a syringe until it started working again. We think the problem was that something was blocked with grease so ran a hot cycle with a Finish cleaning cartridge in.

Took unit apart and when I put it back it worked again. For how long who knows.

Access to the switch is difficult but by removing the printed circuit board, it seemed to allow the switch to work.

I guess you got the alarm AL 6 on your display what means failure to drain. A control procedure has been added to all the final drain phases in order to check the status of the pressure switch. The contact must be open in the "empty" position in order to ensure that the cycle is performed correctly. If the contact is closed, the drain phase is repeated. At the end of the second drain phase, if the pressure switch contact remains closed, "AL" alarm condition is generated.
Could be following:
  • Domestic drain circuit not suitable (obstructed / blocked)
  • Drain pump jammed
  • Pressure switch faulty
  • Sump - pressure switch tube obstructed
  • Filters / drain hose obstructed
  • Relay or Triac faulty

Down under is from AEG Favorit 86460 user manual, page 30 :

...a flashing fault code appears
an audible signal informs you that an alarm has been activated, in the display appears one of the following flashing alarms: AL1 - AL2 - AL3 - AL4 - AL5 - AL6 - AL7, AL8 and the indicator light of the phase under way is flashing. They are indicative of a fault in the dishwasher that you can probably rectify yourself.
- press the On/Off push button to switch the dishwasher off
- open the door and carry out the following suggested corrective actions.untitled-wdmylhxvjmokugi3zifm2oyn-2-0.jpg
