Question about Washing Machines

Open Question

I have an electrolux EWD1477. In the user manual, it instructs me to clean my filter after every drying load, however it does not describe where the filter is. I have an E20 error, but my pump is clear and my wash cycles are still working fine, so I think this filter may be my problem - but I can't find it!!

SOURCE: E20 message

The filter is blocked. Disconnect your power source. Open the panel. Have a towel or wet vac handy and a screw driver. There is a silver ring circling the drainage hose with a small screw on top. Loosen the screw. Pinch the hose on top and let water drain to wet vac or towel. Completely remove the hose from it's housing. Reach your thumb and index finger inside that same hose and pull out the filter. It looks like a small plastic cup with holes in it. Clean it out, wash it. Use your fingers or dry vac hose and feel the bottom of the inside of the hose where the plastic cup came from. Remove any debri that excaped past the filter with fingers or suction with hose til you can feel with your fingers that the bottom of the inside of the hose is clear. return the cup back inside the hose. Put the silver ring over the lip of the hose then place the hose back on it's metal housing which is attached to the machine. Make sure the hole is secured around the entire metal (if not you will get leakage). Tighten the small screw, pull down at the hose making sure it will not come off with the pressure of the water. Clean up any leakage. Close panel and I promise you, your problem will be solved. Good luck, from Cheryl AlAlexander

I've found that a similar thing on my Zanussi appears when the filter on the output is clogged. Removing muck and hair from the filter usually solves the problem

Error E20 means the machine has failed to pump out. 1st check the filter at the bottom right hand side there may still be water inside if so pull the grey tab to the left of the filter there should be a thin hose extend it put it into a shallow dish and pull the cap off to let the water drain this may be a slow process. When the filters out look into the hole with a torch to see if any obstructions in the pump impeller this looks like a cross. If the filters and pump are clear it may be the pump has failed.

SOURCE: E10 & E20 problem

e10 problems refer to water supply..so check the tap is on, the inlet hose is not kinkrd, and the filter in the inlet hose is not blocked.  e20 refers towater drainage,  so check the drain hose isn't kinked and the drain pump isn't clogged

SOURCE: How can I reset my electrolux washing machine afer an E20 error?

turn the dial to off. Press and hold the start pause and the nearest option button. While you're holding them down, turn the dial one notch clockwise.
The machine will beep or flash, let go of the buttons. Release the buttons, then turn the dial slowly, stopping at each click until you get to "off". Now, turn to any setting, then turn to off.

Now, try the machine. If it works, I'm very happy. If not, perhaps someone else can help.
Good Luck

Electrolux Dryer Model EDC 5330 runs for about 4 seconds only then stops.


New electronic dryers are smart appliances. Your device is probably equipped with a conductimetric sensor that has a function to measure humidity of laundry and in accordance with that increasing or decreasing the drying time. So, it is normaly that appliance stop if you did not put the wet laundry. In the user manual is described as adjusting the level of conductivity (if featured) depending of the water in your area. The conductivity of the water used to wash the fabrics varies from zone to zone.
The conductimetric sensor is calibrated to a standard value: any major variations in the level of conductivity may affect the final drying result (i.e. the washing may be too dry or too humid).

From user manual:

Adjusting the level of conductivity
Water contains, a variable quantity of limestone and mineral salts of which quantities vary according to geographical locations thus varying its conductivity values.
Relevant variations of the conductivity of the water compared to those prefixed by the factory could slightly influence the residual humidity of the laundry at the end of the cycle.
Your dryer allows you to regulate the sensitivity of the drying sensor based on conductivity values of the water by using the following procedure.

Procedure:
Turn the programme selector dial to switch on the appliance
In selection mode press simultaneously the buttons 3 and 6 until «C0» appears on the digits.26037909-0ttppooyw5gnrrhrzk4a545r-4-0.png

Adjusting the level of conductivity:
Press the button 5 sequentially: the level of conductivity is indicated by the lighting of the horizontal hyphens.

26037909-0ttppooyw5gnrrhrzk4a545r-4-3.png Normally, the appliance is factory-set to the highest level; however, certain models may be configured differently.
Memorizing the new setting:
Simultaneously press down the buttons 3 and 6 until the previous drying cycle time appears again on the display and the buzzer sounds.

Electrolux only doing half its cycle


See if there is something wrong with the pump or there may be something stick to the pump. This is why it does not do the full circle.

Electrolux EWF 1282 start pause button is flashing wont start a load have reset it no error messages came up have also cleaned the drain filter the manual way underneath the machine still nothing any


Hello terry_gwen - Based on the symptoms you are describing, you may either have a communication error from the main control board or the timer itself may not be operating correctly. I understand that the filter has been cleaned, however, if you noticed a humming noise, it could either be a clogged drainage hose, or it could possibly have another issue with the door lock assembly. I would personally contact a professional to accurately diagnose the washer to determine the root cause to reduce the risk of unnecessary parts.

Electrolux front loader washer ewd1477 flashing start/pause button. interrupted during wash cycle by power outage. start/pause button now flashes and won't start any cycle.


Try to turn circuit breaker off, or unplug unit, for about 5-6 minutes. This is a hard reset and should reset the internal controls to restart the unit properly.

I see many posts about Error Codes that aren't in the user manual. Here's what I found: Go to Google and type in "Electrolux Error Codes" and you will find the following site. It details an Electrolux Service Flash that helps with error codes that don't appear in your user manual. Good Hunting!

Same Problem.. not able to find the lint filter on EWD1477


Lou, thanks for your answer, but I think that the original question is to do with the 'mysterious lint trap' that is mentioned in the manual but isnt actually a part of the machine (ie, its a typo / incorrectly edited manual - copied from another model)

The thing we are trying to find is the lint trap for the condenser unit, which is not the same as the drain pump/filter/trap on the bottom right of the unit (or, at least, shouldn't be - if it existed).

I think this model has a specially designed condenser unit that somehow cleans itself from the action of the washing clothes (in your next run), and flushes the lint from any previous drying cycles away with the rinse water during the next wash.

To help keep things clean, you could try to dissolve or at least break up any gunk buildup inside your machine (likely if your not using the 95 degrees C wash temp setting) by using lots of concentrated bleach (at max temp). However, this could damage the machine, but in my experience it is OK. I am not a employee of electrolux nor am I a service person :)
