Electrolux EWS 1020 - error 5 blinks?

The washing machine gives an error signal as the "end" light blinks 5 times. Even in the RESET position it continues to blink. It did it once before and then let me select a program. When I started it it only made a short water-intake"woosh" and then silence. After a while it opened the door and started blinking again (but the laundry was dry). what should I do if I have already cleaned drainage filter?

SOURCE: error on Westinghouse mastermind 708 front loader washing machine

This happend to me once, and it was in relation to a blocked intake filter.

- Check that the intake houses are not cloged and the small filter under neath is clean (Use an old tooth brash)
- Also check the opening on the front bottom left of the machine. (Open with a flat head screw driver)
. My one had coins in it. Note: drain with the small pipe into a backet so when you open it you don't have watter everywere.

Welcome to FixYa.

The E13 error code on the WFMC series Bosch washer`s refer to a drainage problem, as you may or may not already know. ( or in Bosch terms "pump time exceeded" )

What you may have is either a clogged pump, improper detergent being used, ( must use "HE"/lo-sudsing detergent ) hence suds not allowing a proper drain cycle, or wires loose at the pump...the later being the least likely.

You haven`t mentioned if you`ve checked the pump.

Anyway, here`s the most likely way to remedy a E13 code.

**Unplug the washer from the wall or turn off the breaker before attempting any repairs**

Get some towels and if possible a wet/dry vac. If the machine drained, it won't be too bad. If your machine is stuck full of water, that sucks...hopefully you won't get too wet. ( maybe you`re lucky enough to be close to a floor drain )

  1. Locate the round door on the front of the machine (about 6" in diameter, lower right corner)
  2. Find a drill bit or small screwdriver that fits in the hole in the round door.
  3. Insert the bit into the hole in the door. It will push in a tab, it doesn't take much force. Rotate the hole (clockwise) to 6'oclock and it should come free. (the edges are very sharp so be careful or wear chain-mail gloves).
  4. Once the door is out of the way you'll be greeted by a 3-4" plastic cap with wings so you can unscrew it by hand. ( you should also see a red ring with a string attached, if you pull this the door should unlatch, but getting the water out first is usually a good plan ) There is a small collector lip at the bottom of the cap, that is where you can hold the wet/dry vac to catch the water. Unscrew slowly so you don't get flooded, until it is unscrewed all the way out.
  5. Now pull out the trap and visually inspect the inside of the pump as well as the filter/trap. Hopefully you'll find the item/debris that initiated the error code.
  6. After removing any debris or obstruction`s re-install the button trap/lint filter and plug the washer in to power or reset the breaker and give it a test.
  7. Run a load and watch for leaks. Leave the pump access door off until you are sure you screwed the cap in tight and there are no leaks.
Ultimately you may have a faulty drain pump, but I would certainly start by performing the things I listed first.

Let me know if you require further assistance and if not and this solves your problem, please rate the solution I provided accordingly.

Thank you for coming to "fixya" and good luck.

Ihave an electrolux ewf14742 when putting load of washing on it will go for a while then just stop time reverts back to starting time & door unlocks even though drum is full of water.No error message

I assume that your appliance has a door interlock with 4-contact.
This is "Instantaneous door interlock" and with this safety device, the door can be opened immediately after the end of the cycle.
Before pulses are sent to open the door, the PCB checks for the following conditions:
  • The drum must be stationary (no signal from the tachometric generator)
  • The water level must not be higher than the upper edge of the door
  • The temperature of the water must not be higher than 40 ° C.

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).

How do i reset washing machine AEG 64840

You can choose the right programme for any type of laundry following the descriptions on the washing programme tables (see «Washing Programmes»).
Turn the programme selector dial to the required programme. The programme selector determines the type of washing cycle (e.g. water level, drum movement, number of rinses) and the washing temperature according to the type of laundry.
The pilot light of button 8 starts blinking.
The selector dial can be turned either clockwise or anticlockwise. Position "0" to Reset programme/ Switching OFF of the machine.
At the end of the programme the selector dial must be turned to position "0", to switch the machine off.
If you turn the programme selector dial to another programme when the machine is working, the yellow pilot light of button 8 will blink 3 times and the message Err is displayed on the display to indicate a wrong selection. The machine will not perform the new selected programme.

Electrolux washing machine wh1092 when turn on lights 1,4 and 8 flashes. Nothing happens

If I understand correctly there is blinking LED-s from "Prewash","Rinse Hold" and "End of cycle". In binary code it is fault E91 what means communications error between main PCB and display board.
So, could be: main electronic PCB, display board or wiring.

I have a bosch washing machine. The tumble lights are blinking and I cannot get the machine starting a new program

Restart the machine and repeat the following procedure to reset the machine to original factory settings.

Enter the test program by:

1. Set the cycle knob to any "X" (reset) position

2. Press and hold the Pre-wash and the Start buttons at the same time. While still holding these buttons, turn the unit on by pressing the On/Off button

3. Keep holding the Pre-wash and the Start buttons until the digital display comes on (about 5 seconds)

The digital display will show 00 for no faults or will show a fault code.

To end the test program turn the washer off at any time.

Post the results.

The result would be a fault code which indicates the error. Will await your further comments.
