Question about Electrolux EIED55HIW Electric Front Load Dryer with IQTouch Controls Isl

3 Answers

I own a 1Q-Touch Front-Load Electrolux washing machine. The door won't open. What can I do?

It became hard to use the disc to open the door, so I began to used my knee to softly press against the door and it opened easily. Won't open at all now.

Hello Elizabeth P Cochran - Try resetting the unit by unplugging it or flipping the household circuit breaker off. Wait approximately ten minutes and restart unit. 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.

Usually the tray has to be opened and inspected and if lucky it can be realigned--if not parts may be hard to find as they usually do not sell individual parts for the mechanism.
