    Hi folks,

    We have a AEG 60860 which is coming up with a .20 error, apparently a water drainage issue.

    Sure enough there is un-drained water at the bottom.

    It mentions check the sink outlet... what is this?

    I guess it's blocked somewhere but I don't really know what to check.

    Any suggestions?

    Where does the drain hose from the dishwasher go to?

    There is a pump and probably some kind of grill or filter on the inlet to the pump.

    Check pump is rotating and inlet is clear.

    OP
    Are you sure? Check when machine finishes cycle. And then a while later.

    Hi there,

    There are 2 hoses coming from under the machine, one goes to the sink drainage, I guess this is the drainage.

    There is a filter in the bottom I can take this out but I can't really see much else. I can't see anything that rotates or an inlet.

    I can't start or finish a cycle, it just stops with that message.

    Its also possible the water level sensing tube is blocked.

    To access the pump you probably have to lay the machine on its back and do it from underneath.

    Perhaps its better to call a repairman?

    A lot of washers have a filter on the front - usually accessed through a little door below the machine door 1/4 turn then pull it out and clean it (have some old towels ready to soak up the water that will spill out).

    This fits the fault you described to a T.

    I think we can take it he has checked that.

    Still leaves the sensing tube or level switch or even the pcb!

    Thanks all, I'm still struggling with this. The service company want over £160 to fix.

    I have just noticed the appliance section here, thanks, I'm going to repost there.

    Cheers
