SOURCE: Electrolux Wascateor WE50 fault indication

Hi from retired Englishman in SW France,
I do not know your particular model but I would gently suggest as a first step that you clean the drain motor lint tray/filter. So many 'faults' are caused by blocked filters and many machines will not even go to spin or release the door lock if there is any water still left inside.
Here are my complete guidance notes for checking both the drain motor filter and the drain motor ;-0)
-------------------------------------

If you are unsure where the filter is, it is often behind the front lower (kick) panel (or in some machines at the rear in an awkward position!) and most are held in by a round cover/knob. Sometimes the filter will not come out with the cover and you will have to persuade it to come out to play!

REMOVE POWER AND ENSURE YOU HAVE A WATER RECEPTACLE/RAGS TO SOAK UP THE WATER WHICH IS BOUND TO POUR OUT!
It's surprising what people have found in theirs! It is always worthwhile checking it on a regular basis.
Now- whilst the filter is removed it is normally possible to see the drain motor and ensure it is not jammed by a foreign object such as a needle or a toothpick. It should be able to be turned by hand/finger- the power IS OFF!
At this point it is also possible to test if the motor works. No clothes or water in the machine, select a spin cycle and put the power back on. You should be able to see the motor turning at some point, possibly straight away. Using something suitable like a glove see if it is easy to briefly slow the motor down. If it is easy then the motor is malfunctioning!

If this has assisted you please consider a 4 thumbs up for the rating.
Thanks and good luck!

E13 error code on my electrolux washer what does it mean


You didn't specify model of your washing machine.
For Electrolux that usually means water leaks (Maximum overall water fill time exceeded (sum of all water fills between one drain phase and the next to avoid exceeding the maximum volume).
Could be:
Drain tube improperly positioned; Water pressure too low;
Water fill solenoid valve faulty; Water circuit on pressure switch is
leaking/clogged; Pressure switch faulty.

Assistance with rectifying as to why my LG top loader stops once it gets to the spin cycle. Can someone assist?


Before the washer can start to spin it needs to drain the water from the drum. By you having to drain the water from the machine indicates that the drain operation is not happening. This in the majority of the cases is a bad drain motor.

My Electrolux washer will not drain water or fill water, it will spin. It is also making a humming noise


You need to check for the Humming noise as this can be the indicator to the problem, if this comes from the motor then the capacitor is faulty. Failure to switch on the INLET and the DRAIN pump can be related to fault in the control panel or this can also be due to faulty electric line voltage on the outlet.. So please check this out.
Also check the inlet and drain filters for clogging as a clogged drain pump can also hum.

Water doesnt stop fillinG in panasonic NA F60A6 WASHING MACHINE


Fyi. All new washing maching already tested on their functionality and features but not test run with water intake and drain function. I would like to share My experience last time with this model. The water outlet valve will release by motor when you set to drain mode.it suppose manage to retract back by spring when drain process finish or afte small you change to wash mode.
Take a look on the spring movement.normally it not properly hold valve switch hence the retracted spring not block the valve to stop water drain. Just rectify the alignment of the valve swich which directly connected to the retractable spring.

Somewater stays in washing machine after wash


It's not pumping out fast enough to get it all out in the alloted time. Check the sewer line. Run a garden hose into it to see if it takes all the water you can throw at it. If that is okay, then have a look at the washer's drain pump, belt and hoses. Sometimes a bobby pin, small nail, or toothpick gets into the pump and stops it turning. Or soap scum and lint builds up. Or a hose gets kinked. Good luck.

Zanussi Electrolux ZWF 1430 W (E20 error)


Check water "forreign object trap". It's under the lid at the bottom of the machine. First drain water by pulling out the hose and pull out the plug. Then unscrew the trap. Have had this E20 error twice. First it was two coins there, next it was a big paperclip. Have worked fine ever since.11_20_2011_8_57_27_am.jpg
