You don't open the rear panel. This is a typical symptom of a lid switch problem. The link below will explain how to access it. If you open and close the lid, you should hear a "clicking" sound as the lid switch is activated. If you do not hear the switch, check to make sure the lid strike in still intact. This is a small plastic piece mounted on the lid that pushes down on the switch through a slot on the wash tub opening on the right hand side. If this piece breaks off, it will give the same symptoms of a broken lid switch. Next, check the two mounting screws on the right side of the wash tub opening to make sure they are tight. These are the mounting screws for the lid switch. Sometimes they come loose and the switch does not make proper contact. If you attempt all these preliminaries, and the switch still does not seem to be working properly, replace it. A replacement can be found at searspartsdirect.com. Just type in your model number and the part will be located under the "Top and Cabinet" heading as item number 11 (Part number 3949238).

There is a trap at the bottom of this machine you can get to it from the bottom.this is a very wet project if you take any hoses off there will be lots of water draining so be prepaired with a large towel or shopvac.check to see if anything other than the 2 white balls are in there, the white balls are sapose to be in there,sometimes a underwire gets in there and collects hair and lint.

wow. are you on a well or city water? This means you have sand coming in from the line. and i am very suprised that your fill valve is still working usually when sand is comeing through the line it will either still the valve open causeing water to come in all the time even when turned off or it will block the solinoid and the water will just trickle in. I wouild take the hoses off the back of the unit get a five gallon bucket and turn the water on and see what is comeing out of the line. are you in a drought and on well water? maybe it is sucking the sand from the bottom of your well?

Tips for a great answer:
Hello friend, thanks for your post!
I understand that your Electrolux washer is not draining properly. Some possibilities for your washer not draining could be an issue with the drain pump or control panel. You should additionally check the drain hose to make sure there are no restrictions. If your washer continues to not drain properly you should seek assistance from a professional to repair the appliance. I hope this is helpful. -Matt
