SOURCE: can't open door of lg wd-1018c washing machine

Hi, I don't know if this is much help to you now as it has been a while since you posted your problem. I had the exact same problem and after a lot of swearing and 2 days and no help what so ever from LG I took matters into my own hands.

I took the top off the the machine and removed the small steel plate, you will know what I am talking about after you have done the same.

I had my hubby hold the tub back as far as possible and used a screw driver to release the latch which is at the front of the machine about half way down. You will see a small silver steel knobby looking thing. After the machine was finally opened I unscrewed the screws on the inside of the door and used a flat screw driver to prise the housing apart. Be careful not to drop the glass window as when the housings start coming apart the window is no longer secure.

I found that a small piece of plastic on the handle had perished and broken not allowing the correct function. A phone call to Sunstate spare parts got the new handle to me within a few days at a cost of $20.95.

My only problem now is putting the bloody thing back together. I have been at it for 3 days with no sucess. If you manage to work out how to put yours together please let me know. I hope this has helped and hasnt come too late.
Cherie.

It appears your timer/main controller/CCU 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

Why wont my ewf 1080 electrolux spin


Most likely the washing machine is stuck in Hold mode. Check if you have the spin speed knob at the correct setting.

Elctrolux dishwasher won't start, display won't light. Any suggestions?


Good Morning Friend,

I understand your Electrolux dishwasher, model# EWDW6505GS, seems like it is not receiving power to the control panel. I suggest resetting your appliance, by either unplugging your appliance or shutting the power off at your home's circuit breaker, for 20-30 minutes. Restore power and try any cycle. If you are still not receiving any lights, I suggest contacting your local authorized technician for further assistance. They will be able to diagnose your appliance and determine what is causing your control panel to not have power.. Hope this is helpful.

-Best Regards-

Good Morning Mass manana,

I see that you are looking to reset your Electrolux washer due to the fact that the "Start/Pause" button does not appear, and you can't start your laundry. You can reset this appliance. What you will need to do is either unplug it or you can shut the power off at the circuit breaker. When you do this you will need to leave it off for at least 2-3 minutes. Cut the power back on, start any cycle. If you are still having trouble not being able to start the washer, I suggest either contact the manufacturer or your local authorized technician. I hope this is helpful.

-Best Regards-

My electrolux ewf 1481 front loader wont spin


Open the flap, bottom right of the front panel and check the filter is clear. Most machines will not spin until they have expelled all the water. You may want to check the hose is not block and any connections to the sink if it's not on a standpipe.
Most new machines have quite sensitive out of balance detection so if it an odd load try again but add a few extra items to allow the machine to distribute the load evenly prior to spin. Hope this helps
