Error E35 on AEG washing machines and washer dryers indicates a fault on the filling system and is described as an “Overflow” fault.
The machine believes it is overfilling and takes abortive action as described later. There are several possible causes listed, many of which a diy repairer is unlikely to find helpful. The possible causes listed are –
- Fill valve is faulty
- Leaks from water circuit on pressure switch
- Pressure switch defective
- Wiring defective
- Main board defective
This is typical of many error codes (especially on AEG, Zanussi) where the code only gives a ball park idea of the fault and a diy repairer, with no experience and no access to parts to try fitting is likely to find it too difficult to fix unless they can see something fairly obvious.
The technical information goes on to describe symptoms as – “Cycle stops. Emergency drain procedure. Drain pump continues to operate.(5 mins on, then 5 mins off etc.) OFF/Reset”.
If the fill valve is faulty it is likely to not stop letting in water when the power is switched off. This is rare, so if the washer continues to fill once you switch the machine off you have a sticking valve. Otherwise look at the other explanations. For further (general) help, particularly in understanding how washing machines control water levels see my washing machine is overfilling article.
There’s no mention of any procedure to reset the error code other than the OFF/Reset which doesn’t really say much other than imply it resets when you turn it off. To see if the error is still there you should simply put it on a wash cycle. if it’s still faulty it will abort and give the error code again. If not, it’s presumably sorted.
