Question about Washing Machines
I've got an Electrolux ewt 1016 washing machine and all the leds are flashing random like a christmas tree. A serviceman came to my house and "reseted the error" with a special button combination but he didn't told me how. It was working only a few hours and the error is the same again. I don't want pay again for that "secret" button combination, so I need that "secret" service code that reseting that problem. Maybe the electricity got wet and needs to be change but what is not. I'll take a chance. Thx for advance! :)
It appears your controller/timer has failed in this instance.
For replacement parts - head on over to PartSelect.com or RepairClinic.com and enter in your full model number for a full parts listing.
I recommend both sites because ...
FixYa has no affiliation with either site - I have been using and recommending them for years - trouble free.
PartSelect has a great schematic database for locating the part on your unit and great "testimonials" for each part that often times includes HOW-TO information.
RepairClinic has pictures of each part they sell and also a great how-to and troubleshooting for basic repairs.
If your unit has never been serviced - there should still be an original service manual enclosed in plastic taped to the inside of the shell.
In the service manual are Error codes, maintenance procedures, and troubleshooting steps you can follow.
Anything too complicated or beyond your scope should be handled by a professional.
If you think you want to tackle the repair - and have gotten stuck on a step - reply to your question and I will be glad to help you out.
Thanks for using FixYa - a 4 THUMBS rating is appreciated for answering your FREE question
