Hello - Try resetting the unit by unplugging it or flipping the household circuit breaker off. Wait approximately ten minutes. If the door does not open, then it sounds like the washer is possibly experiencing a communication problem with the control board, wiring failure or faulty door lock. Contact a professional to move forward accurately to properly diagnose/repair unit.

SOURCE: The door will not open on my Electrolux washing machine

How much trouble do you want to go to?

If you just want to preserve the washing, then simply put it on another cycle tonight and that will keep it fresh until the callout turns up to fix it.

The next clever step is to power the machine off at the mains for 10 minutes. Depriving it of power MAY release the interlock door switch even if the cycle didnt.

Final attempt to get to it... Turn off power, unplug at the mains. drag the machine out so you can see the back. Remove the 2 screws that hold the top on, pull back or tap the top forward (depending on the model) to unclip it. Peer inside. You will see the door switch inside the chassis exactly in line with the door handle on the outside. See if you manually make the mechanism release, or if you have a stubby philips screwdriver, you can probably unscrew the switch complely.

If you trust yourself NEVER to open the door in the middle of a cycle, the machine will of course function without a switch. Just so long as you recognise that you will flood the place if you do open it with water in. Also if you put your hand inside dirung a wash (Or worse still a spin) the power of the motor combined with the weight of the wet washing will rip the arm clean off a fully grown man, so if you doubt yourself or you have kids (or kids may visit) don't leave it like this.

SOURCE: unusual display on panel (padlock) machine can't be programmed door is not locked however

i just went through the same thing.......you need to hold the option and extra rinse buttons simultaneously for 6 seconds, this will unlock it.....so turn the machine on and press the two icons, dont worry about the beeping and flashing after 6 seconds the padlock symbol will go and you can use the machine as usual.....i wish they put that 'minor detail' in the manual...cheers!!

SOURCE: I have an Electrolux EW 548 F Washing machine.

Hello,
It sounds as if something has got stuck in the filter jamming the drain pump,try draining the water out either through the filter but beware of the amount of water.Or take the drain pipe at rear and try to drain iinto a container or through the nearest door to an outside drain.Once the water is out you should be able to open the door.Then you will have to find out if some object is stuck in the filter(located at bottom right hand side).

Electrolux washer door won't open


Hi.

Usually the door does not open because there is water inside the tub.

Disconnect power and empty the machine through the drain filter. With Electrolux front-loading washers the drain filter access is located in the front lower side of the machine.
