Question about Electrolux Washing Machines

1 Answer

Hi, I need help my front loader washing machine ewf1481 stopped at spin during a cycle. I turned off machine and tried to set on spin only but only I could only hear a humming sound and the circuit board goes from displaying draining to spin. Nothing is happening. I also tried to start another full cycle but the same thing happened. My husband cleaned the pump/filter, checked the hose didn't have a blockage but no success. It just sounds like the the motor is churning. Is there anything else we can try or do you know what the problem might be?

Hi.

It is the drain system. What you are experiencing is a drain problem. The machine won't advance to spin until the drain problem is fixed.

The first thing to do is accessing the drain pump hose and emptying water in there.

You will need to disconnect power, either unplugging power cord, or tripping circuit breaker. Then open the door located on the front right hand side , below the door. In there unscrew the hose cap, and be ready to collect the water that will flow with a big container.

The procedure is also illustrated on the owners manual.

If that does not fix the problem, or if there is no blockage in there and no water is flowing, then the problem is either a faulty drain pump, or a bad pressure switch, that is the device that is used to detect water , and decide when to stop drain pump.

If there is a fault, then parts must be tested. In that case I would suggest contacting Electrolux at the number listed on the owners manual, to get a technician at home.


Regards.

Simpson esprite 650 front loader washing machine. Electricity trips on programs b & h wash, can't complete cycle. Spinning and draining cycles OK. Why ? thanks sally


Hi Sally.Now in your posting you mentioned the machine trips the safety switch during the main wash.Is this correct?Does it trip as soon as the barrel stars to turn or a little later.Could you explain what b& h wash is.If the machine spins and drains and fills but trips during the cycle then from working on this model of machine I think the fault is your heating element.Have you tried a cold wash without any temp setting?Please reply with additional information on the questions and I am sure I can help you.Looking forward to your reply.

During spin cycle washer spins fine but toward the end of the cycle it spins out of control like it is out of balance? Any help is greatly welcomed.


Some front loaders have a super high speed at the end of the spin. Front loaders don't like small loads, the laundry does not spread out evenly enough for a balanced spin.

Danby washing machine noisy only during spin cycle


hi there,

Most noises from a washing machine occur during the spin cycle. If you hear loud thumping/or sound
during the spin, the load of clothes may have become unbalanced. Stop the washer and
redistribute the clothes, then re-start it. Repeat these steps if necessary.

Whirlpool washer front loader model LHW0050PQ


This is not a Malber machine but the following fix has worked for the Malber washer. Try unplugging the machine for at least 2 minutes. Do not just turn it off as there is still current going to the machine .This should clear the computer. If this does not work, the imbalance may have overloaded the circuit board requiring replacement.
