Hi from retired Englishman in SW France,
(no promises but try this!)
I would gently suggest as a first step that you clean the drain motor/pump 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 and generic 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!). These panels are either held on by (plasic) screws or will just pull off. Most filters 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!

Does this machine have the padlock icon on a button, if so, Hold down the button where the padlock icon is for about 10 seconds...this should unlock the control. What is happening is there is a malfunction in your lid switch and it does not know that the lid is closed. If it does not get a good signal from the lid switch the machine will not spin. You can jump the wires on the lid switch to see if the switch is bad and that will get you through till you get a new switch.

Electrolux ewt 115


Hi Cong Tran.
To buy parts for your machine you should go the the manufacturers distributor with the full model number. (The shop where you bought the machine may be able to help you with that information) The parts shop can easily tell you cost and availability of the part.
Good Luck
Cheers

I have an error code "EF" for my Electrolux


Generally, EF error is showed with an additional number on your display... EF 1, EF 2, EF 3, EF 5, EF8, or EBF.
Each error code will depict a different cause and solution. Out of these solutions, the most common is the control board and possibly the UIB (User Interface Board), or too higher mains voltage coming into the house, causing damage in this UIB device.
Test and check voltage, if this isnt solve it, relace UIB device.
Hope this helps.

Top loader washing machine does not fill up


very simple, your drain hose is below 4 ft, your drain hose should go in the hole between the hot and cold water, if you dont see a hole then it is covered, you need to knock out the hole...
