Test the door switch for resistance with a multimeter disconnect the wires on the switch first or you'll get a false reading

Model EWF10843. How do I select diagnostic mode?


Electrolux Diagnostic Mode
* Press the Cancel button to enter standby mode and enable diagnostic entry.
* Within 10 seconds after pressing Cancel , press any button to wake up the control.
* Within 5 seconds of wake up, turn the selector knob to the far left cycle and press and hold Cancel and far left
button under the display simultaneously for 3 seconds to enter the diagnostic mode.




To save time at wake up, the Welcome screen can be bypassed by turning the selector knob.





1. Upon entering diagnostic mode, all lights should flash for 1¼"x2" display models and all lights on for the 1¼" x
4 3/4" display models.
2. Turn the program knob (1) click clockwise from the start position. The hot water solenoid will activate and hot water
should enter through the detergent compartment.
3. Turn the program knob (2) clicks from the start position. The bleach water solenoid will activate and cold water
should enter through the bleach compartment.
4. Turn the program knob (3) clicks from the start position. The bleach and the wash water solenoids will activate and
cold water should enter through the softener compartment.
5. Turn the program knob (4) clicks from the start position. The prewash solenoid will activate and cold water should
enter through the prewash compartment.
6. Turn the program knob (5) clicks from the start position. The door lock solenoid will deactivate and the loading door
can be opened. When the door is opened, the drum light should turn on.
7. Turn the program knob (6) clicks from the start position. The door lock will activate and the washer will fill then
tumble. Once tumbling has started, the boost heater will turn on.
8. Turn the program knob (7) clicks from the start position. The drain pump will activate draining out any water in the
tub and the washer will operate in high spin.
9. Turn the program knob (8) clicks from the start position. This is a free position.
10. Turn the program knob (9) clicks from the start position. The control will signal the last 5 error codes with E00
being no error.
11. Turn the program knob (10) clicks from the start position. Latest software version will be shown.
12. If applicable, turn the program knob (11) clicks from the start position. This is a free position




Exiting Diagnostic ModeA) Unplug the power cord, wait 5-8 seconds, then reconnect the power cord or
Turn the program knob clockwise back to the start position. Press the Cancel and far left button under the display

until the LED's stop flashing

Stops mid cycle and the 400 and 0 spin lights flash


According to the service manual ( which you can download ) it is the fault code 05 which means NTC failure. This is the water temperature sensor.

Haier HDP18PA


Not sure of the background on your fault, but this may help:
I have an HDW202. I accidentally opened the door while it was running - a no-no, but there is no lock preventing opening the door while it is running - not idiot-proof at all, disappointing, really. Anyway, closed the door, the washer kept running, then water started to leak out the front door. I quickly turned it off, mopped up the water, and turned it back on. It pumped out the remaining water visible in the bottom, then started flashing lights and doing 10 beeps in a row, pausing for a minute, 10 beeps in a row again, etc. - it was stuck in this cycle. I tilted the unit forward, backwards, and side to side, while turning it on and off periodically to check for results. More water came out of the unit, and it started to behave normally while tilted, but not level. Eventually, after more tilting, it returned to normal behaviour when level. It seems it did not pump all of the water out initially, and this was causing it to malfunction until all of the residual water inside had drained onto the floor from tilting the unit.

Just water pump start


Check the water supplies at the back, if the valve is opening, and the water is getting into the machine, it can be a faulty water level switch, or membrane sensor, depending on the model.

A faulty or clogged inlet valve can also close few seconds from opening the valve, usually becausu of a faulty solenoid.

If valve and water level switch are ok, then this is a faulty control.

Have valve and water level switch checked first.
