Electrolux EWF1087 Error 30

The machine starts, lets in water and mediately pumps the water out again. It then "stalls". I then have to turn the power off and back on again. The machine then displays E30 which is cleared by turning the power off again.
It does not wash; what does E30 mean?

E10 is a timeout code. I found the answer on google by refining my search criteria. The tap was not turned on enough for the washer to fill up in time before the timeout was reached. After restarting the washer and turning the tap on further, the washer cycle completed without error.

HELLO GARY E50 error is to do with the motor, it can be the motor power supply triac has got a short circuit or there could be no signal from the motor tachometric generator, which will uaually mean a pcb fault, or wiring to motor or even the motor. hope this helps

Hi, you most likely are getting a "RPS Sensor Fault"
When the motor rotor position sensor fails, it will act exactly like you describe. Many techs incorrectly replace the machine control or the water inlet valve(s). The RPS sensor is much cheaper. If you consult the tech sheet, you will see the fault code for RPS failure and I would bet the farm that the sequence of LEDs displayed if it does when your washer faults out matches exactly with the RPS fault code.

Electrolux has power does not work with no LED display

Sounds like you need a new electronics main panel or interface if seperate - plus an investigation into why it failed. Don't just buy a new part and fit it - it might blow up again and the supplier wont accept it back if it does.
Consider age of machine before booking an expensive repair call

Front loader washing machine EWF1087 stopped half way and did not drain, E50 was displayed. Emergency emptying out the water was done and try to restart. Could not start, still displaying E50. What to do?

the error code E50 indicates that the motor has become overheated, you should give it an hour to cool then try running the washing machine again. I'm also including a link to pdf below with the common error codes for your brand of washer in case you have any other problems

Code E60 flashing on screen of electrolux ewf1087 after powere cut during cycle. can't reset can't open help please


No water detected entering machine or Pressure switch trip not detected.

If after 30 seconds the control does not detect water entering machine and then valves will be turned off and the error code will be displayed.

If the control has turned the water valves on and after 8 minutes the flow meter has detected 10.5 gallons of water passing through it, but has not detected the pressure switch trip, the valves will be turned off and the error code will flash.

Press PAUSE/CANCEL twice to clear the display.
  • If there is no water in the unit:
    1. Make sure that both valves at the water source(s) are turned on all the way.
    2. Check for plugged or kinked inlet hoses or blocked or scaled up screens in the inlet valves
    3. Verify inlet valve operation
  • If there is water in the unit:
    1. Verify Drain pump operation
    2. Pressure Switch Hose is in good condition and properly connected to Tub and Pressure switch
  • Verify there is not a siphon problem
  • Verify wire harness connections to:Inlet Valves, Pressure Switch, Drain Pump, Flow Meter, and Central Control Unit (CCU)
  • Check all hoses for possible leaks
  • Verify pressure switch operation
  • Verify flow meter operation
  • Verify CCU operation

Washing machine EWF1087 Main light works, nothing else does, no display. Machine stopped half way through a wash, still full of water and clothes.
user manual.
troubleshooting advice.
Washing-machine-repairs - The washing-machine fills with water but does not start the washing cycle

1. The water level sensor or float switch may be faulty. If the unit does not sense that the water is at the right level nothing will happen.

2. When the water filling rate appears very slow, the inlet water filters may be clogged. Although not that common the inlet solenoid valve can jam and only partially lift.
3. The cycle timer or program circuit board may be faulty
Shows how it should operate.
There is a thermal switch inside the pump and this corrodes even after a year. If the filter is blocked the the pump has to work harder and so heats up (a lot). This switch is prone to staying open once it trips out.

Isolate machine from mains and water supply.
Empty machine with drain hose and bucket at floor level.
Clean Filter out.
Turn machine on its side.
Remove electrical connections from pump.
Remove 3 screws holding pump (small leakage so get a towel).
Remove PUMP from machine. (be observant now)
Remove plastic cover over coil on pump.(its easy)
Thermal switch is soldered between 2 of the now 3 visible terminals. about 7mm x 15mm x 2mm in size
Remove small insulating cover and bend switch up about 30 degrees then flick with fingernail and blow out the dust or rust.
This resets the switch (horray)
Replace insulation on switch and bend back into position gently.
Replace cover over the coil.
Turn pump by hand (resistance should be like pushing 2 small/ medium size magnets together the wrong way)

Return pump to machine and reconnect pumps electrical connections. 2
Reconnect machine to mains (water and electric and waste)
Turn on machine while holding START and SKIP BUTTONS at the SAME TIME.
Leave it off for five mins then turn off and turn on again.
If it does not work straight away RESET again and Repeat as above.

Model EWF1087 washing machine will not spin or drain just makes buzzing noise.

your pump impeller is blocked or fouling on something inside the filter compartment,turn machine off unscrew fiter (be prepared for water to come out),then get a long screwdriver and turn the impeller anything caught in there will free itself up,and you should be able to mremove forieghn object if impeller doesnt turn then it more than likely your pump is seized and will need replacing hope this helps.
