Probably you have foreign stuff in the drain pump or the pump worn out. Unplug the machine and unscrew the pump cap, watch for water pouring out, prepare something to catch in the water, then inspect for coins, knobs, ... . Check if the pump wheel rotates freely. screw back the cap and try to start a new wash program

The machine knows what the water level should be at every step of the program, so if its full when it should be empty, is not filling when it should be or is taking too long to fill or empty the program will abort and count down in seconds as you describe.
First - check the drain filter for blockage!! if clear, can you hear the drain pump running on 'drain' program? a chug chug chug noise. If not pump may be jammed or seized - or the drain tube maybe be blocked at the waste connection on the sink, etc. Or maybe the water supply pipes have blocked or got turned off? Possibly the waste pipe may not have been installed correctly and the machine is syphoning empty? ie the end of the waste pipe is lower than the water level in the machine - so it syphons empty like draining petrol from a petrol tank! That would empty the machine when it should be full.
Check all the basics of filling, draining and filter before suspecting anything else.

See page 23 of the (UK) user's instructions, which you can download from the AEG website. The pump is accessed from the front of the machine. There's a small cover panel at the bottom right corner. Just remove the cover, and unscrew the plug carefully so that water can drain gradually into a shallow tray. TURN THE POWER OFF FIRST.

Check your pressure sensor. Make sure that the air column that operates the pressure sensor is not blocked. Find the pressure sensor and remove the air hose to it. Blowing into it with the hose attached to the pressure sensor will check the pressure sensor. Use an ohm meter to measure if it changes. Blowing on it with it connected to the air column will check that nothing is blocking it.

You have a leak in the machine and water is accumulating in the base pan. Most likely this leak is a manufacturing issue or a transportation issue. Check to see where the leak is coming from under the machine. If in warranty call the dealer.

This is a configuration error. There is a way to reconfigure it, if you have the technical information, but most likely you will need to replace the PC board.

This sounds like it is the heating element in the machine. Check to make sure the heating element is getting power. If it is then replace the element.

you may need to replace the shock Absorber on the machine. Check and see if it is broken and working.

This could be a number of issues. Have you checked the brushes? They should be at least 15mm. Check your circuit board and make sure that the dust from the brushes did not attach itself to the board and cause a short. Use compressed air to clean the motor. Clean the circuit board with air if dirty. Check for solder joints on the circuit board to see if any cold solder joints on the relays.

Is it plugged in? Is the water on? Is the door closed?

Open the machine up on the top lid. 2 screws at the back of the machine at the top. Slide the lid back and remove it. The drawer can now be accessed. There should be a bunch of clips holding the lid of the drawer . You can carefully open these clips to remove the lid or just remove the entire drawer assembly and replace it or try to figure out what is jamming it.

When was the last time you changed the brushes on the motor? Check the brushes by removing the motor and then the brushes. The brushes should have at least 15mm left on them. Use compressed air and blow out the motor.

The valves are simple to check. Remove the valve then hookup the water to the usual connector. Then hook 120 volts via an extra power cord to the valve. I recommend you crimp the proper connector to the end of the cord and plug that onto the valve. You can also use Alligator leads, but this comes at the risk of then coming off and shorting out. Whenever doing anything like this always cover the exposed ends with electrical tape. Then plug in the power cord. If the valve is working it should allow water to pass freely through the valve. The German washers also typically use an "air column" to shut the water off via a pressure switch. Check this pressure switch by hooking up a hose or just unhooking the one on it and measure the contact with an ohm meter. The contact should switch when you blow onto the tube simulating the water rising in the air column.

Parts can be found online or via your area dealer.
