Re: electronic lock up

Error code is for door interlock...
However it is also possible that a track on your pcb that is connected through wires to the the door lock has will now need to replace the pcb aswell.this seems to be a common problem where doorlock blows pcb after failing

Lavamat 72640 will not pass 24min on wash timer. sometimes it will show a E40 code but not always.


on Oko washing machines E40 means defective door lock. Since a faulty door lock switch may go out with vibration you often do not get the error all the time. The door lock switch must be tested and eventually replaced.

E 40 code error. Just keeps clicking then error message?

e40 is the alarm if machine started with door open. door lock may be faulty or connections/ wiring to it. possible for door ******/handle to come mis aligned in the door you have to split the door to check the handle shaft has not come out. watch where the springs go. the clicking is the electronic trying to lock the door.

Error code e40 on my washing machine electrolux ewn 16781 w

The Error E40 warning means the door is not properly closed. The E40 error code indicates a loss of electrical power usually but not always due to the door not shutting properly or not locking. But, since you smelled burning it could be any electrical short that blew a fuse and shut the machine down. It could also be the motor windings with the internal overload protector shutting it down.

Electrolux ewf1074 error e40

I've just bought one of these machines, and the manual says the E40 warning means the door is not properly closed. Seems like that would be obvious if it were true, but maybe check that it is closing completely.
