SOURCE: The door will not open on my Electrolux washing machine

How much trouble do you want to go to?

If you just want to preserve the washing, then simply put it on another cycle tonight and that will keep it fresh until the callout turns up to fix it.

The next clever step is to power the machine off at the mains for 10 minutes. Depriving it of power MAY release the interlock door switch even if the cycle didnt.

Final attempt to get to it... Turn off power, unplug at the mains. drag the machine out so you can see the back. Remove the 2 screws that hold the top on, pull back or tap the top forward (depending on the model) to unclip it. Peer inside. You will see the door switch inside the chassis exactly in line with the door handle on the outside. See if you manually make the mechanism release, or if you have a stubby philips screwdriver, you can probably unscrew the switch complely.

If you trust yourself NEVER to open the door in the middle of a cycle, the machine will of course function without a switch. Just so long as you recognise that you will flood the place if you do open it with water in. Also if you put your hand inside dirung a wash (Or worse still a spin) the power of the motor combined with the weight of the wet washing will rip the arm clean off a fully grown man, so if you doubt yourself or you have kids (or kids may visit) don't leave it like this.

My Electrolux F/Loader won't start filling. I select a wash cycle and start . The screen shows 'filling' but only makes clicking noises.


Thank you for your post, friend!
I see that your Electrolux washer won't fill during the cycle and makes a clicking sound. This clicking sound could come from either the motor or the water valve. In order to locate which component could be causing the issue you may need to disassemble your washer. I would recommend having a professional technician out to properly disassemble the washer to prevent any personal injuries or future issues. I hope this information is helpful to you. -Matt

Showing on screen E41


Family error code E40 is visible to customers and (could be E41,E42,E43,E44 and E45 only visible in service mode) means problem with open door or door interlock.
I suggest rapid reading alarm code when appliance is in normal operating mode (e.g. during the execution of the washing
programme):
Press and hold down START/PAUSE and the nearest option button simultaneously for at least two seconds: the LEDs initially switch off, and then display the flashing sequence corresponding to the alarm.
The alarm sequence continues as long as the two buttons are held down.
E41 - Door open
E42 - Problems of door closure
E43 - Interlock power supply triac faulty
E44 - Door interlock sensor faulty
E45 - Door interlock sensing circuit triac faulty

Possible causes:
Door interlock faulty, wiring faulty or PCB faulty.

Electrolux washer playing up!


Remove the top panel, there should only be 2 or 3 screws on the back of the panel, then slide the top panel back about 1/4 inch and it should lift off. Look to see if the belt has come off. Post your results back.

Our electrolux front loader Washing Machine EWF 1083 won't fill with water and there is a humming sound, does anyone know what the problem is ? cheers


Just a long shot - it may be the water inlet filter is blocked? normally there is a little mesh filter in the hose that screws onto the back - check that its not full of crap. This happened to me only a few weeks ago hope its as simple as that for you.
