Re: er20 comes up on my washer

Your on the right track .... To narrow it down all you have to do is disconect your waste pipe from under the sink or where ever it goes to and lower it ground level , if the water startss to flow out by means of gravity then you have no blockage and its the pump if water does not flow out then its a blockage....

Either to clear the blokage or change the pump turn the machine upside down as both are easily accessible from there hope this helps... any questions dont hesitate to ask...

I have Electrolux front load wahser Model EIFLW55HIW0 that is about 6 years old, Has worked without a problem for many years. recently started giving E35 error codes. the water doesn't ap

Hello friend, thank you very much for your inquiry!

After reviewing the information you have provided regarding your Electrolux front load washer EIFLW55HIW0 having an E35 error code, I have found E35 is an indication of a water over fill problem. If the water fills above 4.5 inches please follow the below trouble shooting steps I have provided for you. If the water is not above 4.5 inches you may need to change the pressure sensor switch.

If the water enters continuously please unplug the washer to see if the water stops. If the water does not stop your issue may be the water valve assembly. If the water does stop the wiring to the water valve assembly needs to be checked. If the wiring is good the control board may need to be replaced.

I do suggest you seek a professional technician to look into this issue further to avoid any unnecessary part purchases. - T

Bought "Electrolux eco turbo lava

Hi from retired Englishman in SW France,

You will need to type into your search engine/web browser '(make) washer manual' and you should be presented with a number of sources from which you can either download for free or have to pay a nominal amount. During the process you will be asked for the actual model number!
Good luck,

No hot water coming into the washer.

This problem is commonly attributed to a defective hot water solenoid on the water inlet valve (also known as a "mixing valve"). This is a fairly simple repair that can easily be accomplished without the assistance of a repairman. Depending upon whether the washer is a TOP LOADER or a FRONT LOADER, the replacement procedures differ slightly. The following link explains how to replace the valve on a TOP LOADER:

To replace the water inlet valve on a FRONT LOADER, follow these steps:

1. UNPLUG the washer.

2. Turn off the water source and disconnect the fill hoses from the back of the washer.

3. With the top panel removed, disconnect the dispenser hose(s) and electrical connections to the valve.

4. Remove any mounting screws holding the valve in place and reinstall with a replacement valve.

Replacement parts can be purchased on line at any of the following websites:

All these sites offer great service with competitive pricing, so shop and compare. The first three sites on the list also include helpful exploded view diagrams of your washer to help with locating and properly identifying the parts you need.

If you have questions, please post back with your MODEL NUMBER and let me know. I hope this helps you.

Drum wobbles front and back so on spin it goes out of control and shakes up and down electolux eco valve 6.5 kg front loader


Washing machines usualy have springs on the front and back which can sometimes snap or come loose. you can usualy see these by looking at it from beneath.

Also they have a ballast which is usualy a small piece of concrete attached to the bottom of the drum. This is to stop it from bouncing around as well. these also have a tendancy to either snap their fixings (Bolts) or split and fall off.

In either sutuation it should be fairly easy to repair. I have had both of these situations on a BEKO. got the parts from the NET.

Hope this helps.
