Question about Electrolux Washing Machines
The E42 error indicates a problem with the door lock mechanism. If the door was closed, did you hear the lock attempt to engage? If you heard the lock, check the door strike. If the strike is good, replace the door lock. If the lock didn't attempt to engage, check the wiring between the door lock and the control board. If the wiring is well seated and the wires have continuity, replace the door lock. If the replacement lock doesn't solve the problem, then replace the main control board. (You should find a diagram with the wiring inside the unit near the control board.) If you have broken wires in the wiring harness, replace the wiring.
Please add a comment with the model of your washer if you want me to point you to any parts/price lists.
I hope this helps.
