Question about Washing Machines

3 Answers

We have a electrolux zwd16270w when the programme is set you can start it then after a short time it will stop and the door lock will un lock as if it has finished.This happens on all programs and sometimes you can get through a wash mid cycle and then it stops with the start stop light flashing and door can be opened. You can turn machine off and back on start program and after 10 secs it finishes again.

    Hi

    Yes im in the UK, I have noticed that the delicates wash goes all the way through and the spin cycle works all the way through. I thought it may be the timer or something on the control board as if you leave it to cool down it works a few times then gives up. Can i get the controller board or timer module ?. If so any sugesstions where to go ?


    Thanks

    Paul

Sounds like the timer needs to be replaced or the door switch is faulty. It can be tested with an ohmmeter in the ohm setting after disconnecting the wire, place ohmmeter probes on each side and see if you get a reading. There should be no reading with switch open and a full reading with switch closed

Hi, well this problem is probably caused by a faulty door sensor, or some other sensor, or maybe even the main controller, Glitching" and causing your problem. You need to use these training and service manuals to troubleshoot and hopefully repair, your unit.

The timer has failed. Unfortunately on your model - it is integrated to the main controller board, and not separately serviceable.

Are you in the UK?

    The expanded diagram can be found HERE, but finding the controller, itself, is proving difficult. You may need to seek the advice of your dealer.

Model ESL 499. Why doesn't it start?


You have activated the delayed start function. Please read following instruction from user manual.

8. Delayed Start button

Allows the start of the programme to be delayed by a minimum of 1 hour, up to 9 hours. How to set the delayed start When the button is pressed, the number appears in the display (4). Press the button again to select the number of hours by which you wish to delay the programme start, up to a maximum of 9. E.g.: if you have selected number , the wash programme will start in 2 hours' time. To cancel the delayed start set, press the button until the number appears. Close the dishwasher door to start the countdown: a long audible signal (about one second) informs you that the function is active. If you open the door again you will see, in the display (4), how long there is to go (in hours) before the programme starts. A flashing dot in the digital display means that the delayed start function has been activated. Opening the door has no effect on a countdown which has already been started. If, during the countdown, you wish to see the programme number selected in the display, press the Programme Selector button (5). If, after having started the countdown by closing the dishwasher door, you wish to cancel the delayed start, press button (9) (Cancel) for about 2 seconds until the short «instruction accepted «signal is heard».

Electrolux dishwasher


Hello - The issue may lie with the door latch; a door switch is used to start and stop your dishwasher. It's a safety feature that won't allow water to flow with the door open. With a faulty door switch, there is a chance your dishwasher won't start at all. Dishwasher door switches are about an inch long. They are usually black but can be red. There are metal prongs on the body of the switch called terminals. Some door switches have two terminals and some have three. If your door switch is OK, check the timer assembly. This controls when and how long power is sent to other controls on your dishwasher. If these controls don't receive power, they won't work. The timer assembly contains a motor. Check this motor as well. It is often cheaper just to replace the timer motor rather than the complete assembly. My last suggestion is to check the cycle selector switches. These switches indicate cycles for washing, drying, and setting the temperature of the water. If one of your switches is the problem your dishwasher may not start. Dishwasher cycle selector switches tell the timer which cycle to run by opening and closing electrical circuits. Most selector switches are six to eight inches long. They are usually black and have terminals. By testing each one of these parts with an ohmmeter you should be able to determine why your dishwasher is not working. It is possible for other parts to fail but these are the most common parts to check. If any proves to be ineffective, I strongly suggest contacting a professional to move forward accurately.

My electrolux ewf 1030 get err 44 help me pls ?


E44 - It means "Door closure sensing circuit faulty".
Replace the circuit board and restart the diagnostic cycle to check further alarm condition.
When the washing programme is started by pressing the START/PAUSE button, the bi-metal PTC (contacts 3-5 on door interlock device, no.3 on electrical diagram) is powered by the triac (DOOR TY) on the PCB: after 2 - 4 seconds, this closes the switch (5-4) which powers the electrical components of the appliance (only if the door is closed). The door interlock prevents aperture of the door while the appliance is in operation.
Microprocessor recognize closure position by sensing circuit connected to J2-1 on electronic board.
At the end of the washing programme, the PCB disconnects the interlock from the power supply, but the door remains locked for 1 to 2 minutes (PTC cooling time).

Are you getting fault code E40? Certainly sounds like a door lock problem. Is the spring on the door catch strong enough to operate the door lock? sometime the plastic moulding that holds the door catch mechanism breaks if the door was forced open. Double check the connector on the new electronic door lock. If not his, may be electronic panel problem, or connections pulled of the board while you were fitting the new door lock.

Our vac works for a short time, then shuts off and makes clicking noise as if trying to restart again. Works after cooling for a while but for another very short time. Your suggestion on fix would be greatly appreciated.
Thanks


I would advise you to ALWAYS to FIRST UNPLUG YOUR VACUUM before beginning any service procedure
I would advise that it could be a thermal switch or a regular switch that the thermal switch is over heating and needs replacement – there are small hoses in the door section that could have been pinched or kinked and it stopping the air flow from the vacuum – also check for a clogged or plugged vacuum hose, a full vacuum bag or a dirty vacuum filter. Check the thermal switch or reg switch or the hoses in the door. Or feel free to contact your local vacuum dealer in your area or in the yellow pages, or call the factory @ the phone number listed below:
