SOURCE: The door will not open on my Electrolux washing machine

How much trouble do you want to go to?

If you just want to preserve the washing, then simply put it on another cycle tonight and that will keep it fresh until the callout turns up to fix it.

The next clever step is to power the machine off at the mains for 10 minutes. Depriving it of power MAY release the interlock door switch even if the cycle didnt.

Final attempt to get to it... Turn off power, unplug at the mains. drag the machine out so you can see the back. Remove the 2 screws that hold the top on, pull back or tap the top forward (depending on the model) to unclip it. Peer inside. You will see the door switch inside the chassis exactly in line with the door handle on the outside. See if you manually make the mechanism release, or if you have a stubby philips screwdriver, you can probably unscrew the switch complely.

If you trust yourself NEVER to open the door in the middle of a cycle, the machine will of course function without a switch. Just so long as you recognise that you will flood the place if you do open it with water in. Also if you put your hand inside dirung a wash (Or worse still a spin) the power of the motor combined with the weight of the wet washing will rip the arm clean off a fully grown man, so if you doubt yourself or you have kids (or kids may visit) don't leave it like this.

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

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!!

Hi i have Electrolux washing machine model EWF14811 the display is not working what can i do ?


I've never seen a model EWF14811 so I believe that it is a EWF1481 model washing machines.
Unfortunately, you have to replace the entire electronics because the LCD display is part of the PCB.
Also, before replacing I suggest you to check contacts on the LCD display which can be weakened by moisture,... etc.

I own a 1Q-Touch Front-Load Electrolux washing machine. The door won't open. What can I do?


Hello Elizabeth P Cochran - Try resetting the unit by unplugging it or flipping the household circuit breaker off. Wait approximately ten minutes and restart unit. If the door does not open, then it sounds like the washer is possibly experiencing a communication problem with the control board, wiring failure or faulty door lock. Contact a professional to move forward accurately to properly diagnose/repair unit.

Electrolux ewf1481 door seal twisted


Hello,
This sounds as if one of the top spring hangers has come out of its location point.If you turn off the power and remove the top lid,then look into the machine you may still see one spring connected and the other one may have fallen into the base of the machine which you will have to retrieve and refix,by lifting up the drum and resitting it in the hole at the top.Check also that the rear counterbalance block if fitted and the front one have not come loose and the bottom struts are ok.This fault can occur after an uneven load has been in the machine.Some of the Models have a keep plate fitted to stop the springs from un - seating.
You can then inspect the door seal for any damage.

Hope this helps.

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..............
