    What is the machine doing? What are the symptoms or loss of functions? i.e. Won't wash? Door won't unlock? Also have you tried pulling the plug from the wall for 5 minutes to try and reset the system

    In order to remove the lock on your washing machine and make it work again

    just hold the option and extra rinse buttons simultaneously for 6
    seconds...
    you will see the padlock symbol go and then use your machine
    as usual


    That will fix it!

How to do with E40 code of Electrolux EWF 1074?


Family error code E40 is visible to customers and (could be E41,E42,E43,E44 and E45 only visible in service mode) means problem with open door or door interlock.
I suggest rapid reading alarm code when appliance is in normal operating mode (e.g. during the execution of the washing
programme):
Press and hold down START/PAUSE and any of the option buttons for at least two seconds: the LEDs initially switch off, and then display the flashing sequence corresponding to the alarm.
The alarm sequence continues as long as the two buttons are held down.
E41 - Door open
E42 - Problems of door closure
E43 - Interlock power supply triac faulty
E44 - Door interlock sensor faulty
E45 - Door interlock sensing circuit triac faulty

Possible causes:
Door interlock faulty, wiring faulty or PCB faulty.

Unusual display on panel (padlock) machine can't be programmed door is not locked however


i just went through the same thing.......you need to hold the option and extra rinse buttons simultaneously for 6 seconds, this will unlock it.....so turn the machine on and press the two icons, dont worry about the beeping and flashing after 6 seconds the padlock symbol will go and you can use the machine as usual.....i wish they put that 'minor detail' in the manual...cheers!!

Washing mashine dispalys symbol not in users manual.Where time is displayed it shows a symbol that look like a padlock.The machine does have a key symbol on side panel. Door is showing unlocked. Cannot...


Try buttons "dry" & "spin" together for a few seconds. This could be the child lock display.

Or press "end of cycle" for over 3 seconds.

Or press "options & select" till the light goes off.

Works for other machines..............
