You most likely have had the main control board blow on your Electrolux washing machine.
It is quite common for the main boards to blow on these machines. The main board is located on top of the machine towards the front right hand corner.
You need to remove the top panel via two screws on the back. Then slide and lift to remove top cover.
You will notice a white plastic casing fitted on the right hand side towards the front. This plastic cover holds the main PCB and is vertically fitted on a cross beam and has many wires going into it.
Get a quote for the part as they are expensive. Best to get a qualified repairer if you are going to replace this part, as there may be a problem elsewhere in your machine, causing the board to blow.
Electrical storms and power-surges also cause the boards to blow. Other time an electical short circuit or leaking water on electical components can cause this. Another item to watch out for are cocroaches. They can nest in the boards and short things out.

Hello - From what you have described it sounds like the washer could possibly have a communication problem with the control board not responding. Since you have already replaced the door lock, I would strongly suggest contacting a professional to accurately diagnose the unit.
