Question about Blomberg Washing Machines
Posted by Anonymous on
I have Blomberg WM87120 NBL00 Product code 717518110 and had flashing Lock in display. Bought and installed new lock and no change. Display still flashing lock. Used following procedure and every is working now.
Press pause button and hold down while turning off machine.Continue to hold pause button and turn power back on. If numbers come up on display make note of them for future reference. Release pause button and all lights on display will light up. Turn power off again and then turn back on. If machine was in a cycle it should end it and then return to normal operation. .Dont know if new lock made a difference. Try the reset procedure first.

could be a faulty door lock as this is required to be locked before a signal is sent to the controller to start the wash cycle, try replacing the door lock, there quite cheal only a few pound

SOURCE: Constantly getting an E40 error
Knowing the make and model of your machine would help!!
This sounds like a Zanussi/Electrolux error code. If it is then E40 means "Door open, door interlock, wiring or main PCB"
I'll presume that you DON'T have the door open, so lets move on from there. There is a sensor on the catch when you close the door (Its the one that locks the door when you close it so you can't open it in mid cycle). It also checks if the door is closed so it can lock the door. It MAY be that a good slam of the door will fix the issue because the catch is a bit sticky.
Equally as likely is that at some stage recently you have already slammed the door, or the machine has had a very uneven load that has caused it to shake violently, making one of the 2 wires on the sensor fall off. This will also cause an E40 and is a not uncommon fault.
If the slam doesn't get you anywhere, have a go at the following:
POWER OFF - MACHINE UNPLUGGED FROM THE WALL!
I'm making a few guesses here as I don't know the specific machine
Take the lid off the machine (Usually a couple of screws at the back of the machine at the top, undo them then give the lid a sharp thump with the heel of your hand to push it forward or backwards (The way the lid was held on by the screws should give you a good indication of which way the lis comes off, it MAY even have a couple of screws in the side near the top, hidden under a couple of little plastic caps).
Once the lid is off, take a look at the sensor for the door. It is directly mounted around or on the door catch, so use the position of the catch on the outside of the machine to figure where it is - This is going to be a tight squeeze, it will be made easier if you tip the machine back by 45 degrees so the drup suts back in the chassis and gives you more room.
You should clearly see 2 spade tags on the sensor with a wire on a spade connector attached to each one. If one is off - good news - put it back on (You might want to give it a squeeze with a pair of pliers to tighten the conenctor up a bit so it doesn't happen again.
Reassemble - Job (Hopefully) done.
If the wires were in place and the door slam didn't work, it could be the main control board that is faulty. IF the fix above didn't work, you probably need to call out someone who can test and fix it.
I HOPE I Have the correct machine!!!

Remove the bottom panel which would give you access to the pump area if you look up along the side that the door lock is on you will see a cord with a loop on it pull this cord and the door would open. The panel must be removed in order to locate this pull cord. If you have any further questions message me back and please also remember when our chat has fully concluded to rank how this opinion has helped in your appliance situation it allows me to continue helping others in similar situations in the future Thanks Rick
p.s if after you open the door and you were to leave the unit unplugged for 7 minutes if the error did not go away or if the door once again locked up you would have no choice but to replace the door lock assembly on the unit Thanks again Rick

Hello zabbster - Typically the DR or DO error code indicates that the door switch is not closed. Make sure that the door lock is completely closed. If the door is closed, make sure the door latch is not broken. If the latch is broken, you may possibly need to replace the door lock switch.
