First check the breaker hasn't tripped in your main breaker panel.

If you suspect you have a defective timer it can easily be replaced by performing the following steps:

1. Unplug washing machine... and pull out the timer knob. Some knobs have a removeable center cap and hidden screw. Some are simply slip-fit. Remove the knob.

2. Remove console. This can be accomplished in one of two ways depending on which type of console you have.

a. If the console has removable end caps, the caps lift off by prying on the top from the back of the washer.
The cap will pull off towards you as you are facing the unit from the front of the washer.
There will be a screw under each end cap that you will need to remove.

b. If the console does not have removable end caps, you will need to slide a putty knife under the front corner of each side and push in while lifting up.
There is a retaining clip under each side that has to be released.

3. Once the console has been released it will lift up and fold back over the back of the washer in its resting position. Use care not to stress the small plastic hinges that hold it on. They can break easily.

4. Disconnect all power plugs and remove the timer's mounting screws.

5. Reinstall reverse of removal.

I have an electrolux ewf1074 it drains for a few seconds then says error43 i just fixed the handle and new door i ve tried resetting tried differ cycles no luck

E43 - Interlock power supply triac faulty. Problems with the component (triac) which actions the door interlock (3-contact device or 4-contact device depending of appliance).
Could be: Door interlock faulty; wiring faulty; PCB faulty.
also could be both: PCB and door interlock

Disadvantage of appliances managed by electronic is the short circuit of any load (drain pump, circulation pump, thermistor, motor, heating element .....etc.) can destroy the electronic.
Experience has taught me that in the event of a short circuit is always good practice to visually check the place of electronic where is the connected load under short circuit.

I've just been given a second hand Daewoo fuzzy logic DWF 4094R. I've been told it works fine, but it has a hose missing. This didn't worry me because I like to do cold water washes. But I

I don\'t under stand what help you need.

If the cat urine smell is outside of the appliance then wash it down with Clorox.

If there is a filter on the output of this machine then service that before doing the next step.

If the odor is inside the machine then run Clorox for a couple of long hot cycles AND then run white vinegar in it. The Clorox will sanitize and the white vinegar will loosen and remove minerals that hold odor.

Add a quarter cup of white vinegar to each load until the odor is gone or your clothes will stink.

My thought is that there is a reason they gave you this "working" machine. If you have further issues then let us know.

Good luck,

My washing machine kkeps tripping my fuse box

This is related to a fault in the main control panel, it is possible there is a short if the fuse keeps tripping off. You need to remove plug and pull out the panel to check for short in the power supply to the main control panel usually a SMPS unit. Use a multimeter to check for short, if so this must be replaced.
check for tips from the link below:

I had a cracked cold water inlet valve due to frozen pipes but Ive relaced and machine stll isnt working. I suspect water has squirted from the cracked valve into the inside of the machine and hit...

Careful inspection should show where or if there has been water in the machine. Don;t go buying expensive spares without doing some basic tests. What isn't working? Does it power up or is it completely dead? If the valve had leaked after freezing the inside of the machine would have been flooded after it thawed and so would your kitchen (or wherever the machine is). Have you checked mains supply in the machine? Give more details and i will try to help.
