Question about Electrolux Kitchen Ranges

2 Answers

Machine failing to drain properly despite no outflow obstruction. Seen by engineer today who ran diagnostics which seemed to fix the problem but it has now recurred. Can you tell me how to do the same (e.g. are the buttons pressed in a particular combination or sequence)?

    It is now Saturday afternoon and no engineer is available again until Monday. Just to clarify, the machine is an Electrolux ewx14440w washer dryer.

Washing machine won't drain


Check the inlet to the pump for blockage, make sure that the outlet pipe is not kinked, that there is nothing obstructing the pipe. Check the filter to see if it is not clogged or obstructed. If possible back flush through the outlet pipe and try draining the machine again before using it again.

The washing machine won't drain water? how can I fix it? Its seems clogged with debris


Ideally you need to remove the pump and outflow pipes and flush them out. Also check the pipe between the drum and pump for a blockage. Back flush the outlet pipe from your hot water tap..

The3 problem is more likely to be in the pump itself. No diagnostic except what you have jsut described. Open the outside covers and access the hose to and from the pump. More liokely on the inlet side and check the hose and the pump entry hole.

Kenmore Elite washer HE4t keeps giving us a F02 error code??


Check the drain line for kinks or obstructions. The pump should also be checked. Remove the hoses from the pump and using a flashlight, look into the suction port on the pump. Make sure there are no obstructions (like the occasional stray sock). Also check the pump impellers and make sure no blades are missing/broken and that the pump impeller spins freely. If any blades are missing/broken or if you cannot get the impeller to spin freely, the pump is defective. Sorry for your trouble and I hope this helped. Best wishes.

How do you diagnose a bad washer pump vs a cloged line?


Amana ALW480DAW seems to be not completely draining. When I start a new load water in basket becomes dingy and smells. Washer smells when it has not been used for a couple of days. We have checked the outflow and inflow drain tubes found no problems. It seems to spin and agitate normally, it drains to a point and leaves water in it, not visible in the basket. When we blow on the outflow tube when it is done draining there is still water present, we can hear it bubble.

F02 fault on a hot point washer says motor jammed


Hi, 

I suspected suds build up, so I tried both regular wash cycles (e.g. Normal) and Rinse and Drain cycles multiple times to clear suds in the system, but still received the F02 error. Sometimes the SUD error message came up, but not consistently.

I ran the built-in Diagnostics tests. It made it to C:06 then got stuck.

In both scenarios above, the washing machine continued to try to pump water out, despite the fact that all the water had already been drained. After 8 or so minutes, the F02 error came on. As I understand it, if the pressure switch detects either water or suds, it commands the drain pump to continue. After 8 or so minutes, if it's still detecting water or suds, the F02 error is displayed.

I performed the following with no success:
1. Check Wire Harness connections - OK
2. Check Drain pump. – OK, as water drains at a rapid rate
3. Check Drain pump motor - OK, as water drains at a rapid rate
4. Check that the Drain hose and Drain Pump Filter is clear of
foreign objects. – OK, ran a cable through both hose assemblies (exterior and interior) and not blocked.
5. Check the CCU – appears to function normally.
6. There were no kinks in the hoses, nor was the height of the pump beyond what the manual recommends.

After more diagnostics and troubleshooting, I found that the Pressure Switch was stuck and reported the SUDS state (continuity made between contacts 11 and 14 on the Pressure Switch itself). I ran many Rinse and Normal cycles with no detergent and still got this F02 error. I checked the state of the Pressure Switch’s Empty and Level 1 contacts which intermittently reported the correct water level condition (EMPTY and Level 1). In all cases contacts 11 and 14 (SUDS) were continuously made (connected) irrespective of water level, rinse conditions and the use of no detergent.

I removed the pressure switch and tested it by blowing into the inlet and did hear the switch click, so it seemed to work properly. Given the diagnostics above, I concluded that the pressure switch hose must have been clogged.

Good Luck!!

Thanks
