Question about Electrolux Washing Machines

1 Answer

I have an Electrolux washing machine front loader and it is not completing it's complete cycle. I set it on cotton wash which takes just over 2 1/2 hours to complete but when I go back to the laundry to take the washing out it is still sitting in a pool of water so it hasn't rinsed or spun

Hi from retired Englishman in SW France,
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!

Please score this solution accordingly.
Thanks and good luck!

Try resetting the mainboard by removing the wall plug overnight. May also be a faulty lid switch if it is a top loader.

    Well I'm an idiot. They did say there was a fast wash, but it specified that it was for extra rinses to help people with detergent allergy etc., but did not give a time for the cycle. They should have said it was the short wash for everyone. I tried it, and it was fine. Thanks anyway. If I ever have a real problem, I'll be back.

    Washing cycle on a 40degree op. takes more than


    Don't forget that the reason you bought a front loading washer is for the efficiency of the washing. In other words, front loaders use less water and get clothes cleaner without all the harsh beating that the older agitator units do.

    If you're using any of the pre-programmed wash cycles, you might want to tgry another cycle to see how it does for getting your clothes clean with a shorter cycle.

    If you check your owners manual, it should provide the cycle times for the various wash and water temp settings. The colder the water you use, the longer the wash cycle typically is, since it takes more agitation and time to get clothes clean, especially with front loading machines. Hope this helps.

    You may have a broken inner tub spider. Check for play between the inner drum and the outer tub by moving the inner drum up and down.
    If there is excessive play, the spider is broken causing an unbalanced load and therefore no high speed spin can be achieved.

    In this case the inner drum would need to be replaced, which means taking the machine almost completely apart. A good tech can do it in about 1.5 hours.

    A mold smell from my washing machine


    IMPORTANT: Read thoroughly. DO NOT add detergent or other laundry products to this cycle.
    1. Remove all items from the washer.
    2. Open the dispenser drawer and 2/3 cup (160 mL) of liquid chlorine bleach to the bleach compartment. DO NOT use more than 2/3 cup (160mL) of bleach per cycle as this will lead to product damage.
    3. Close the washer door and dispenser drawer.
    4. Select the Clean Washer cycle or a full wash cotton 104 F wash (40 C). DO NOT use any higher temperature as this will cause unnecessary fumes
    5. Press Start and allow cycle to complete.
    6. If the bad odour persists, repeat the procedure 1 or 2 more times. This may be necessary if this is the first time you have run this cycle.
    7. After the cycle is complete, leave the door open slightly to allow ventilation and drying of the washer interior.
    8. Repeat the cleaning procedure monthly.
    To maintain the washer freshness:
    1. Use only HE High Efficiency detergent.
    2. Leave the door open after each cycle to for better ventilation and drying of the washer interior.
    3. Use warm / hot water in your machine unless the fabric you are washing requires cold.
    4. Use the correct amount of fabric softener.
    5. If your laundry room is damp, use a dehumidifier.
    6. Clean the door seal of visible residue.
