Model EWF10843. How do I select diagnostic mode?


Electrolux Diagnostic Mode
* Press the Cancel button to enter standby mode and enable diagnostic entry.
* Within 10 seconds after pressing Cancel , press any button to wake up the control.
* Within 5 seconds of wake up, turn the selector knob to the far left cycle and press and hold Cancel and far left
button under the display simultaneously for 3 seconds to enter the diagnostic mode.




To save time at wake up, the Welcome screen can be bypassed by turning the selector knob.





1. Upon entering diagnostic mode, all lights should flash for 1¼"x2" display models and all lights on for the 1¼" x
4 3/4" display models.
2. Turn the program knob (1) click clockwise from the start position. The hot water solenoid will activate and hot water
should enter through the detergent compartment.
3. Turn the program knob (2) clicks from the start position. The bleach water solenoid will activate and cold water
should enter through the bleach compartment.
4. Turn the program knob (3) clicks from the start position. The bleach and the wash water solenoids will activate and
cold water should enter through the softener compartment.
5. Turn the program knob (4) clicks from the start position. The prewash solenoid will activate and cold water should
enter through the prewash compartment.
6. Turn the program knob (5) clicks from the start position. The door lock solenoid will deactivate and the loading door
can be opened. When the door is opened, the drum light should turn on.
7. Turn the program knob (6) clicks from the start position. The door lock will activate and the washer will fill then
tumble. Once tumbling has started, the boost heater will turn on.
8. Turn the program knob (7) clicks from the start position. The drain pump will activate draining out any water in the
tub and the washer will operate in high spin.
9. Turn the program knob (8) clicks from the start position. This is a free position.
10. Turn the program knob (9) clicks from the start position. The control will signal the last 5 error codes with E00
being no error.
11. Turn the program knob (10) clicks from the start position. Latest software version will be shown.
12. If applicable, turn the program knob (11) clicks from the start position. This is a free position

Possible there are errors in the program memory. Power off the washer for half an hour, press and hold down the start button , then switch on. Try also with another program. Also check if the inlet filter is clogged and the water flow is good, if not clean. Also check the water level pressure sensor.

My washingmachine doesn't continue to the next phase of the program


Yes! it seems that the program controller unit is the suspect, but first you need to check with other set programs and see if the entire cycle goes through. If not this can be related to a processor gate failure to go into the next sequence.
Also check the water level sensor and the drain pump and push in all connectors to be fitting. MAke sure there is no moisture within or else you will need to use a dryer to clear off and check.

It is possible that the machine does not start off the cycle because there are errors due to feedback from the inputs. For the program to start up the main program controller must initiate the INLET/MOTOR/DRAIN pump/ valve to open up and allow each function to be driven starting from the flow of water into the drum as also the drain valve to open to exit the water at the point of the program cycle. If this does not happen then the voltage at the valve/motor/pump must be checked or the fault relates to no voltage from the controller. This means the controller is a suspect.

If the water flows then the flow should be good, if not the inlet valve is bad or there is dirt in the filter. Also check the flow at the inlet of the water line. Once the water comes into the system the WATER LEVEL SENSOR - normally a pressure switch- must activate at the preset/chosen level to give the signal to the program controller to switch on the motor. What is most important for the motor to start functioning is that the door switch must be ON when the door is shut or this will be an error for starting the motor for rinse and wash.

Check this link to replace the inlet valve:

http://www.espares.co.uk/advice/washing-machines/a/7/1408/how-to-replace-the-inlet-valve-on-a-washer-dr.html

Finally after the wash the drain valve will be activated, the water is allowed to come in to rinse and then finally the dry spin with the drain valve/pump activated so as to drain off all the water from the clothes during the spin.

Make sure that a fault in any of the cycle will relate to the specified action, so check the command from the program module and then the executing device be it the valve or motor or pump.

LG WM 1437 At the end of a wahing program it starts detecting as if starting the program again, what is the problem


If the machine after completion goes back to start, then it is a fault on the main controller unit. make sure that there is no moisture on the panel or within . use a hair dryer to heat off moisture after removing power cord for a while.If not the controller is a suspect.

Hello & Welcome to FixYa

FH error is displayed when the control detects no water entering the machine. To clear this error press and hold the PAUSE/CANCEL button twice. You can then check if the water inlet valve is fine and not clogged with foreign particles, try to clean it. If the water inlet valve appears to be fine then check if the pressure switch hose is properly connected to the pressure switch & tub. Please get back to me if you have any questions.

The water is not spinning out. the water is pouring out onto the floor when the spin cycle starts. not leaking when in wash cycle


You may have a pump that's bad. When it goes into spin cycle it assumes the water will be drained within a period of time before it goes into high speed spin. If it goes into high speed spin and the pump hasn't done it's job then you will get a bad mess, flood, water all over.
