My Electrolux F/Loader won't start filling. I select a wash cycle and start . The screen shows 'filling' but only makes clicking noises.


Thank you for your post, friend!
I see that your Electrolux washer won't fill during the cycle and makes a clicking sound. This clicking sound could come from either the motor or the water valve. In order to locate which component could be causing the issue you may need to disassemble your washer. I would recommend having a professional technician out to properly disassemble the washer to prevent any personal injuries or future issues. I hope this information is helpful to you. -Matt

Electrolux ewf 1470 not spinning no error message


Hello - Does the unit make a humming noise? If so, either the drainage hose/pump is clogged and needs to be cleaned, or you have another issue with the door lock assembly or the timer and control board not communicating correctly.

If the compressor is not coming on then first check the start capacitor and if this is good then check that the contactor or relay is working properly Hopefully its one of these if not it may be the thermistat but probably the compressor has siezed..

Both fridge / freezer are not cooling down. It sounds like the motors are not working.But there is power going in. Also there is a small humming engine noise.


Are you sure the humming noise is from the compressor motor being locked up? It is normal for the compressor motor to make a humming noise when it runs. Make sure the fan in the freezer is also running while the compressor motor is running and replace it if necessary.

You need to defrost the coils in the back of your freezer. You can do this the slow, easy way by simply unplugging the refrigerator for 24 hours. Leave the doors open to ensure everything has the chance to melt.

The fast way to defrost the coils is to turn off the refrigerator and remove the rear panel from the freezer compartment. You will see the evaporator coil completely frozen with ice. Thaw the ice with a hair dryer and make sure you thaw the drain at the bottom of the back wall as well.

When you turn replace the freezer panel and turn the refrigerator back on, it will get cold again.

Bosch dishwasher timer freezing


There is a recall on the control board of many of these models, butyour problem is likely not related. It sounds like a plugged drain system or a possible bad drain pump. That's why you are hearing the pump running constantly. I have written a guide to help. It is here. Thanks!

Refridgerator is not cooling or freezing


If the compressor comes on, then it is most likely working, unless it makes a loud humming noise. However, if it makes a clicking noise, it could have a bad relay. If the compressor gets too hot, it will shut itself off on overload until it's cool enough to run again, which is usually long enough to defrost your food.

You may have a problem in your sealed system. If this is the case, there may be a refrigerant leak somewhere. If this is the case, you should have a technician come out. Your sealed system should be covered under warranty if your refrigerator is under 5 years old.

Please let me know if you have any other questions about this.

Hums and freezes up????


The fan motor must have been stopping. If the fan stops, for sure the fins will freeze because there is no air flowing. common Fan motor problems defective bearing or bushing and starting condenser. If the bearing is defective, it will heat up and seize. Have the fan motor checked. The fact that the fins are freezing, means that there is enough freon and the compressor is working.
