Question about Electrolux Washing Machines
Hi from retired Englishman in SW France,
If you haven't done already, I would be tempted to look for spares suppliers with the info you already have i.e. JLWM1203! Do you have a manual with anything in it?
You will need to type into your search engine/web browser '(make) washer spares' and you should be presented with a number of sources from which you can order. During the process you will be asked for the actual model number.
If this has assisted you please score accordingly.
Thanks and good luck!

Zanussi washing machines can sometimes display error code E50. As John Lewis washing machines are currently also made by Zanussi some John Lewis washing machines can also display error E50.
Unfortunately this is not a "proper" error code and is not listed in error code lists. It's part of the motor fault error code group and is apparently displayed to customers but when an engineer enters a special diagnostic display the "proper" error code will be displayed giving more information.
However, there are usually only two error codes beginning with E5 which are E51 and E52, which are "motor power triac short circuited" and "no signal from the motor tachometric generator" respectively.
So if you have E50 displayed on a Zanussi or John Lewis washing machine it looks like a problem with the motor. However, the E51 "motor power triac short circuited" could be a fault on one of the PC boards as triacs are usually on printed circuit boards. This could have blown due to a short circuit somewhere else (like the motor for example) - I would advise that an engineer is required if you can't see anything obvious with the motor.
