Question about Electrolux Washing Machines

Open Question

EWN 1220 washing machine goes into pause mode after starting new cycle?

I turn off the machine at the power point and sometimes when switched on and reprogrammed the machine will run and wash as normal. The machine goes into pause mode a few seconds after programming and pressing start. When machine pauses the door light stays on and the start/pause button flashes. I have tried switching off and reprogramming but just goes to pause mode. The water connection must be ok because the machine sometimes works. It doesnt spin so efficiently anymore?

This might be Lid cover open protection. There is a small magnet at the edge of the lid cover, housed in some sort of a catch.
If the plastic housing cracked, the magnet might have dropped into the washing drum. To overcome this, place a magnet on the position where the plastic catch will contact the washer when the lid is close.

SOURCE: Machine won't restart after reset, 'start/pause' button flashing.

Hello,

When you put it to drain/spin does the pump make any attempt to drain,if not it could be that there is something stuck in the pump,needs draining manually.Another thing to try is to find the fault code.If you hold down the 2 buttons on the far right of panel then press on/off button till lights start chasing,then release the 2 buttons on right hand side.Now the first function button by the on/off button you will need to press until the light above the button reaches the 9th or 10th position this will give you a read out in the display.
E10 = low water press.
E20 = pump or filter.
E30 = press. switch or heater faults.
E40 = Door swich.
E50 = motor.
Some of these numbers can vary there are more but those are the most common.After checking codes switch off machine then back on twice to reset.

Hope this helps.

Why is the SP light flashing when the machine has filled with water and is ready to go


sp is the code for stand by or pause
so if you have set a soak period then it will stay there until the soak period has finished
if it is sp and you have pressed pause/start extra time the machine is in pause mode until you press start again

Turn the machine to the off position. Unplug it and then plug it back in. Now try to restart the cycle. If this does not help find a local washer and dryer repair shop

I have an Electrolux EWD1477. I have been away for four months and I'm having problems with it. I set to do the quickwash30 program and press start, you hear the clicks, it might put some water in then...


My EWD1477 was doing this a year ago and I fixed it. Then it started doing it again a month ago and I seem to have cleared it again.

Firstly, remove the drain hose from where it is inserted into a laundry sink hole to make sure it is not blocked or sealed in with sludge.

Secondly, make sure the machine is empty of water and clothes and then turn the machine to off with the Program Selector Dial. Then turn off the power at the socket and remove the power plug and leave for five minutes.

Step 1: put the plug back in and turn the power back on.

Step 2: turn the selector switch to the right (Whites/Intensive). The green light of the Start/Pause button should be flashing and the green lights on for Prewash/wash, Rinses and Spinning. Don't press any other buttons or change any other settings.

Step 3: press the Start/Pause button and wait for the machine to empty any excess water. Press it again immediately after you hear water flowing into the machine OR two audible clicks. The machine is now in pause mode with the green light of the Start/Pause button flashing. Only the green light on the Prewash/Wash button should be on. Leave it in pause mode for 30 minutes and then press the Start/Pause button to recommence the cycle.

Step 4: If the Start/Pause button begins flashing, water stops flowing into the machine and the three green lights mentioned above are back on, turn the Program Selector Dial back to off, wait 10 seconds, and repeat the process above.

Step 5: If when you then turn the Program Selector Dial to Whites/Intensive and hear the two audible clicks, immediately press the Start/Pause button to set the machine in pause mode. Wait 30 minutes. Then press the Start/Pause button to recommence the cycle.


Hopefully the cycle will run without a problem.

My front load washer goes into pause two min after machine is started i have to press start for cycle to continue and sometimes it does it a second time press start again it will then finish cycle


you should check button start / pause the washing machine, if it is damaged you must replace it with a new one, the damage caused by the push button which is not connected properly.

My neptune washer is stuck in pause mode I can't set it any any wash mode to wash a load the start/pause light just keeps blinking. Is there any way to reset it or boot it to get it started again thanks...


Karen,

Power it down by pulling the 120VAC power cord to the washer then plug back in and see if it will progress with the wash cycle. Which machine do you own the FAV6800A LED console display or the FAB9800A LCD console.

If still no good I will have you try to get into Service Mode but let’s see if a power cycle will clear the issue…….Rich


You will need the Service Manual for reference. Sears Parts Direct for reference.

Machine will not spin or drain water.


I have a problem with my MW512AU. Sometimes it drains after wash cycle, but sometimes it sticks when it goes to spin, doesn't get up to speed, water comes on for about 10 seconds and shuts off, and it tries to spin again. If I hit the wash progress switch it goes directly to final spin and works ok. I then have to run a 2nd wash cycle to rinse the clothes. I also noticed a buzzing sound when I turn on the power point, which lasts about 3 seconds before stopping. It will come back on every 3-4 minutes for 30 seconds. This is with the machine power switch off. It powers on normally.
