Machine needs to be broken down, cleaned and inspected. There is a chance there is something caught in the turbin that circulates air through the machine.

SOURCE: WILL NOT START

two possibel reasons for this
1, you have something stuck in the blower moter
look down the lint trap you may just be able to see it
2. your motor is going bad
open the door and hold the door switch with tape or something like it
push the button and try to spin the tumbler while you hear the buzz
if it starts up and the buzz goes away,,,, your motors start wionding is gone and you will need to replace the motor

My top load electrolux washer machine, model MEX731CAS3 does not drain. it spins well and the cycle gets completed except the draining and centrifuging part. any suggestion?


The function of the pressure switch in the machine that gives a signal if the washing machine is full or empty with water.Spining cycle will start only if the machine is previously drain water and pressure switch overlapped to the empty position. Check everything about pressure switch and hydraulic circuit (tube and pressure chamber).

Does it start after about 1 hr?? Sound like the motor is going bad and over heating. If it starts when it cools off then motor needs replaced.

Have to slam dishwasher door to make it go electrolux 4000


Hello David Horn - The issue may lie with the door latch; a door switch is used to start and stop your dishwasher. It's a safety feature that won't allow water to flow with the door open. With a faulty door switch, there is a chance your dishwasher won't start at all. Dishwasher door switches are about an inch long. They are usually black but can be red. There are metal prongs on the body of the switch called terminals. Some door switches have two terminals and some have three. If your door switch is OK, check the timer assembly. This controls when and how long power is sent to other controls on your dishwasher. If these controls don't receive power, they won't work. The timer assembly contains a motor. Check this motor as well. It is often cheaper just to replace the timer motor rather than the complete assembly. My last suggestion is to check the cycle selector switches. These switches indicate cycles for washing, drying, and setting the temperature of the water. If one of your switches is the problem your dishwasher may also prevent the unit to start. Dishwasher cycle selector switches tell the timer which cycle to run by opening and closing electrical circuits. Most selector switches are six to eight inches long. They are usually black and have terminals. By testing each one of these parts with an ohmmeter you should be able to determine why your dishwasher is not working. It is possible for other parts to fail but these are the most common parts to check. If any proves to be ineffective, I strongly suggest contacting a professional to move forward accurately.

Capacitor should be inside cylindrical cover on motor's side; simplest test is to replace it. If motor humms but won't turn maybe bad capacitor, stuck bearing (turn by hand) or bad/dirty centrifugal switch contact. If no humm at all, may have burnt internal neutral wire.

Check under the machine and see if the motor turns easily by hand. It could be the motor, or it could be the bearing. The switching off after a while implies that the motor is struggling against a heavier than normal force and trips because of overheating. Most likely the bearing/s is/are ceasing up.
