Hi, I am getting the E40 error although the door is shut completely. Also when it fist happened our fuse tripped, not sure how this is related. any ideas on what might be wrong? Can someone also tell me how I can open the Machine, I have unscrewed the two screws from the top back but that does not opn the top of the machine, there must be other screws somewhere which i need to open but not sure where, any help will be much appreciated. thanks

When I switch on my washing machine AEG Lavamat turbo 16800 it displays E40


HI Mike.
THIS IS ALL I COULD FIND OUT.
E40 relates to the door being left open when the programme is started, it maybe that the latch was not pushed over when the door was shut.
to solve the problem get another switch.
hope this helps you.

Error code E40 on a Electrolux Front Loader Washing Machine EWF80743. What does it mean and how can I fix it?


E40 relates to door lock faulty or not closing - you probably need a new door lock, but check the catch on the door hasn't snapped off first. You will also get E40 if you try to start the machine with the door open.

Good afternoon, for me problem with the washing-machine of Electrolux EWS 106430 W, can not include it the error of E40 (a door is opened) writes, although actually closed. That to do me? Thank you!


Hi from retired Englishman in SW France,

There is likely to be a problem with either the lid/door solenoid/lock or the 'lid/door closed' sensor requiring a service engineer's attention I suggest ;-0(

If this has assisted and/or clarified the situation for you please consider a 4 thumbs up on our rating.
Thanks and good luck!

AEG washing machine error code e40


E40 relates to the door being left open when the programme is started, it maybe that the latch was not pushed over when the door was shut.After the door is closed again the fault should go away. If it does not and you hear alot of clicking from the door lock you may just have a door lock at fault.Code E40 is door not closed, could be a mis-aligned door or faulty door switch.-------------But if door is closing properly and you are confirmed that door is getting properly locked, then other possibility can be gunked filter or blocked drain pump.It requires cleaning internally.The procedure is as follows:--- Towards the bottom right of the machine is a pull-down flap.
Drain the machine - there's a tube at the bottom of the machine
with a plastic plug - you'll see a butterfly handle, pull hard; the plug
is a round ball on the end of a stick.
Unscrew the large diameter thing (pump cover) -
Don't do this before the drain step!!!
Withdraw the filter cylinder and remove any gunge - the
filter port has two ports - the left one is the impellor
pump and the right one is the discharge pipe; feel to ensure
these are not gunged up either.
Reassemble in reverse order - as Haynes say.
Almost every programme necessitates a pump activation to
assure that the machine is empty of water .-----------

I have a ewf1090 with an E40 error what can I check to see what is wrong


The code E40 indicates an internal loss of power, most likely caused by the door not been properly closed, either by a handling mistake or because the door latch is worn out.

There are a number of other conditions that may pop up the same message (i.e. overload due to defective motor, fuse blown), but unless you have any other symptoms like burned smell, I'd go for the door first.

The fuses are the second thing I'd check.

Error code e40 on my washing machine electrolux ewn 16781 w


Hi,
The Error E40 warning means the door is not properly closed. 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.
Thank you for contacting Fixya.com

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.
