Unusual display on panel (padlock) machine can't be programmed door is not locked however

Electrolux EWF 1074 front load clothes washing machine gives you a 'lock' icon on display which isn't covered in manual. Door does open/close but machine won't program. Looks like the 'brain' needs to be reset. Anyone know how to re boot this machine

I just went through the same thing.......you need to hold the option and extra rinse buttons simultaneously for 6 seconds, this will unlock it.....so turn the machine on and press the two icons, dont worry about the beeping and flashing after 6 seconds the padlock symbol will go and you can use the machine as usual.....i wish they put that 'minor detail' in the manual...cheers!!

It's a safety feature to stop you (or the kids) changing the program settings whilst mid cycle. Holding the 'Extra Rinse' and 'Delay' buttons simultaneously should turn it off.

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

Washing mashine dispalys symbol not in users manual.Where time is displayed it shows a symbol that look like a padlock.The machine does have a key symbol on side panel. Door is showing unlocked. Cannot...


Try buttons "dry" & "spin" together for a few seconds. This could be the child lock display.

Or press "end of cycle" for over 3 seconds.

Or press "options & select" till the light goes off.

Works for other machines..............
