Electrical timer/lock/release malfunction

Posted on Jun 30, 2009

  • Motzz Jun 28, 2011

    I have recently had a fault with my ewf1495. The original symptom was wet clothes eg not spinning properly. It appeared to be out of balance and shutting down, I noticed a bit of slack in the bearings so replaced them but the fault ended up being a broken wire in the motor IDC connector which was caused by poor factory assembly, the cable tie to the loom was so loose that a finger could fit in. The wobble of the drum eventually fractured the wire at the IDC connector but the insulation held it together so a visual inspection did not show it up. It was only after the drum bearing replacement that the extra fiddling shook it loose and stopped working altogether. The proof is when it was loaded with clothes it would shut down but if unloaded it would spin to full speed, the wire was just barely touching and the extra wobble with a load moved it away, visible evidence of arcing was visible at the end of the broken wire. The fix is to regerminate the wire. I recommend that the cable tie be checked on all Electrolux front load washing machines as I have noticed similar symptoms mentioned on the web. Of the machines faulty area in question poor design and poor quality control are the root cause.

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.

If it gets louder the faster it spins its more than likely the drum bearings, if its a constant noise starting when the machine is emptying it could be the pump or something stuck in the pump,If so check in the filter for hair clips etc.

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.

Electrolux EWF 1495, Starts but dosent wash. Drum turns about twice then stops for a couple of minutes, turns then stops. It then indicates cycle ended but didnt rinse, spin or drain or spin. These can be...


OK, first remove the rear access panel. You will see a drain boot going from the tub to the pump. You will need to remove that boot and inside is a filter that you need to clean out. Reassemble and run a load and let me know what happens.

The cycle doesn't advance When the cycle doesn't advance, it's probably the timer or a cold-water supply problem:

  • It's the timer, if your washing machine fills with water and begins agitating, but the timer never advances--or if the washer is in a spin cycle and the timer won't advance. Then you need to replace the timer.


  • It may be a cold-water supply problem, if the washing machine fills with water, agitates, drains, and spins, but then doesn't fill with rinse water. See There's no cold water.
