Question about Electrolux Washing Machines
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.

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.

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
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.
