Re: Error message

E40 fault code is water level too low during heat which is very strange to appear at start-up. does anything else happen? without being certain, points to a main module fault

Electrolux Inspire Model EWN14780 W Showing ERROR E40 how to solve this problem

E40 code indicates that the door is not closing all the way.

Check the door latch pin.
It's a spring inside the door that forces it over.
If it's being pushed over quite strongly then it's possible that the door may have moved slightly to the left, causing the fault.
Push the latch pin over and trim a small amount of plastic off the door, where the pin rests against.
This will allow it to move over slightly further and activate the lock.
If the spring in the door is broken, you'll need to replace it.

Hope this helps.. Good luck! :)

E 40 code error. Just keeps clicking then error message?

e40 is the alarm if machine started with door open. door lock may be faulty or connections/ wiring to it. possible for door ******/handle to come mis aligned in the door you have to split the door to check the handle shaft has not come out. watch where the springs go. the clicking is the electronic trying to lock the door.

Electrolux ewf1074 error e40

I've just bought one of these machines, and the manual says the E40 warning means the door is not properly closed. Seems like that would be obvious if it were true, but maybe check that it is closing completely.

E40 error code

The E40 error code indicates a loss of electrical power usually but not always due to the door not shutting properly or not locking. But, since you smelled burning it could be any electrical short that blew a fuse and shut the machine down. It could also be the motor windings with the internal overload protector shutting it down.
