The DU in the display is an error code for the door lid not unlocking. This is an indication that the lid lock assembly has failed or the control board is unable to determine if the lid is unlocked. This usually indicates that the lid lock assembly will need to be replaced.

My Electrolux F/Loader won't start filling. I select a wash cycle and start . The screen shows 'filling' but only makes clicking noises.


Thank you for your post, friend!
I see that your Electrolux washer won't fill during the cycle and makes a clicking sound. This clicking sound could come from either the motor or the water valve. In order to locate which component could be causing the issue you may need to disassemble your washer. I would recommend having a professional technician out to properly disassemble the washer to prevent any personal injuries or future issues. I hope this information is helpful to you. -Matt

Tip

Bad smell inside washer


Every Frontload washer on the market today has a smell issue or potential to have one quite easily.In fact the smell problem has been there since these Frontload washers were introduced. The real kick is instead of recognizing the problem and addressing it some of the manufacturers have even started selling consumers cleaners to help reduce the smell problem. Yes they are profiting on the sale of cleaners, that deal with an issue they created. The closest they have come to addressing the issue is adding an extra cycle to your washer strictly for cleaning the washer. Basically you clean your washer so it can clean your clothes. Why didn't the salesperson tell you about the issue? Maybe because it was his first day, but probably because he was trying to sell you a washer.
Now all this said, is there anything you can do? First and foremost make absolutely sure you are using a HE (high efficency) detergent. Frontload washers use a very little amount of water and the HE detergent is not only concentrated so you use less but it is not as thick as regular detergent so it has a better chance of washing away clean. Concentrated detergent is NOT HE detergent and still may pose an issue if used. If you Don't know what HE detergent is, call the manufacturer, your grocery store, or the sales guy who sold it to you. On average you will never need more than 2 tablespoons per load. DO NOT go by the cap fill lines ever. These lines make the assumption everyone has the same water, load the washers the same and have equally dirty clothes. More is NEVER better in a Frontload. Bottom line is you want to make sure all the detergent is getting cleaned out of the washer after each use. If any remains it will start to deteriorate and deteriorating detergent can smell.
Secondly when you are done using the unit for the day, use a towel to dry off the rubber door boot and the inner door. Don't be afraid to pull the boot some to get as much of the water off as possible. The rubber is pretty thick and sturdy. And if at all possible leave the door open as long as possible to help what water is left inside the washer to evaporate. The washers have vents on the back but they do not work as well as venting on a top-load washer. Basically the water drops will collect in the bottom after usage and if the door gets closed that water can get stagnant, grow bacteria and even mold. These will also cause lovely fragrances to tickle your nose.
Finally if you want to try some of the washer machine cleaners they may help some to clean away any buildup that may be already inside the washer. However it seems silly to pay so much for a washer and have to continually maintain a problem that is caused by the washer with cleaners produced by the washers manufacturer. If you try and cut back as much as possible (2 tablespoons) on detergent, and allow as much water to be cleaned out or evaporate the smells will resolve themselves. A good test to use if you think you have a buildup is fill the washer on it hottest cycle with the drum empty. Let it wash around for a few minutes and just look inside and see if you see suds. Suds in the washer tells you soap is still in the tub somewhere.

When washer was off it filled up with water and overflowed will a water inlet valve fix this. this is a whilpool washer frontload ghw9100lq1


Yes, it should. The only way water can enter a washer when off, is through a stuck inlet valve, or by siphoning water from a drain hose installed too deeply in the stand pipe. If your machine had enough water coming in to overflow, that definitely sounds like a bad inlet valve.

Getting F11 code r8ght after starting,then flashes and stops


usually if this is a kenmore frontloader f11 is a communication error between the door lock and the ccu board. usually you'll hear a clicking sound before it fails. If so you need a central electric board. It is located directly under the top lid in the back. you can't miss it it's the only thing that has a lot of wires going to it.

Door Lock Clicks/Makes noises Washer does not agitate/spin


Sounds like very worn motor brushes to me, as its trying to turn the drum but has'nt the power needed to maintain any momentum,and the blinking door light is because of the bad cotact from brushes to motor.About £20 for a set of brushes or get an engineer to fit new brushes,but get a price first.
