The timer on my electrolux front load wont go to zero and allow the door to unlock

Good Morning friend, thanks for your inquiry!

Based off the information you have provided your Electrolux frontload washer the door will not open and the timer is stuck. I would recommend performing a reset on your washer and you can do that by unplugging the power cord or flipping the household circuit off for ten minutes. If that does not help to resolve your issue I would suggest consulting with a professional technician for an accurate diagnosis. It could be a potential problem with your control panel or door latch assembly. I hope this information is helpful. -Matt

Electrolux front loading washer door will not open

Good Morning Nancy,

I understand that the door will not open on your Electrolux washer, model# EWFLS70JSS0. I suggest resetting your appliance, by either unplugging your appliance or shutting the power off at your home's circuit breaker, for 3-5 minutes. Restore power and the door should unlock. Try any cycle. I ask that you please follow up with a comment on the post, at your convenience, to advise if further troubleshooting is needed or if your appliances status has changed successfully. Hope this is helpful.

-Best Regards-

My kenmore elite he3t front load washer door will not unlock

If there is water in the tub, it will not unlock. There is a pump filter that becomes plugged that you can access from the front by removing the lower panel. It unscrews and allows to be cleaned out. If still no luck, there is a release at the bottom of the door lock to open the door manually.

1 month old electrolux FL IQ cuts off and won't restart

If it is only one month old then you should be covered by the warranty ??

To unlock the door place the drain hose in a bowl until the water comes out, if it wont then try blowing down the hose.

If you hear bubbles inside the machine then dump the hose back in the bowl

Once the water has all ran out switch the machine programmer to "off" and then try the door
