20 Most Recent Electrolux EIFLS55IIW Questions & Answers

No wash agitation or spin? try these:

WATER PRESSURE SWITCH: This switch keeps your washer from overflowing. It is responsible for shutting off the power to the fill valve and redirects the power to the timer to start the washing machine running once the correct water level has been reached. Meter check ur water pressure switch?
You can test it with a meter and with a manual test? ( first locate it in the panel, it has a plastic clear tube hose going into it, remove that tube from its connection, now put another small tube or hose into the slot where it was and have the machine set to wash cycle with water in it. Blow into the other end of the tube.
If the machine starts to wash. the pressure switch is more than likely good
( No wash starts - then THE DIAPHRAGM IS BAD AND SWITCH HAS TO BE REPLACED) another test u can do is Remove the hose and submerge in water. Seal one end and blow air into the other end and look for bubbles. Check for an obstruction in the hose as well.
Or take the original hose tube and plug one end and blow into it AT the other end, it should be hard and have pressure, if it is easy to blow and u dont feel any pressure and it feels like the air is going out ?
Sometimes they get busted open or a pin hole and release air causing the water switch diaphragm to not open.

Another test u can make with a multi meter is by testing the prongs individually.
# 15,16,17 (don't worry to much bout the numbers IF U GET THEM WRONG) place ur meter prongs on both out side prongs or connectors of the switch.
(where the wire plugs into) take note of weather it shows OHMS or infinity ( open or close circuit) ? Now place the meter on the left outside and the middle prong, take note agin what it shows. Now place meter prong on the right outside and the middle prong. Agin take note what reading u get. ( you should actually get a reading of infinity in 1 and a reading of continuity or ohms in the other 2? Now the tricky part. Agin place a small tube or hose into the switch and blow into it, using the meter do the same test agin on all prongs. But now keep the pressure on the switch when u blow into it, in other words use ur tongue on one end of tube to not allow air to escape. When u test it agin now one of the prongs that once read infinity should now show continuity or ohms, and 1 of the other prongs that read ohms should now read infinity or open.

Motor Coupling If the washer won't spin or agitate the motor coupling might have failed. The motor coupling connects the motor to the washer transmission. It is designed to fail if the washer is overloaded in order to protect both the motor and
Drive Belt If the washer won't spin or agitate, check the drive belt. If the belt is broken or if it isn't tight on the pulleys the washer won't spin or agitate properly.

mode shifter and or Drive Motor If the washer won't spin or agitate the drive motor might be defective. This is not common. Check all of the other related parts to this symptom before replacing the motor. If the motor is visibly burned out or physically damaged, replace it.

Stator Assembly If the washer won't spin or agitate the stator assembly might be burned out. The stator is essentially one half of a motor, it interacts with the tub by creating a strong electro-magnet. If the stator burns out the washer won't spin or agitate. Check the stator for continuity. This part is often misdiagnosed.

Transmission or clutch assembly not engaging due to going out or slipping.

Door or Lid Latch Assembly If the washer won't spin or agitate the lid switch assembly might be defective. This is a very common problem. The lid switch assembly can fail either mechanically or electrically. Test any electrical switches with an Ohm meter for continuity. The switches should have continuity according to their design.

Door Lock Motor and Switch Assembly If the washer won't spin or agitate the door lock assembly should be checked. The door lock can fail either mechanically or electrically. Test any switches on the door lock with an Ohm meter. The switches should have continuity according to their design.

Motor Control Board If the washer won't spin or agitate the motor control board might be defective. The motor control board provides power to the motor as well as direction and force. If the motor control board is defective the washer may not work at all or function properly.

CHECK THE CAM DOGS INSIDE THE AGITATOR, AS THEY WILL HINDER THE AGITATION PROCESS. However in G.E models the cam dogs are replaced with what is called an agitator coupler. (located at bottom of tub)
Remember to check the agitator spline as well for worn broken teeth.


By the way my advice is free cuz God is good!

it won't unlock? well I do believe those should have a quick release on them once you get in underneath. if its locked, and won"t unlock, and pumps out could be a belt, motor control board, but my guess is the door lock. try to reset it and unlock the door some how. If theres water in there it won't unlock. could be both.

Good Afternoon Mjiuliano,

I understand that you are looking for instructions on how to align the door on your Electrolux washer, model# EIFLS55IIW. Typically, this is not a do it yourself fix, as there are no step by step instruction manuals. I suggest contacting your local authorized technician for further assistance. They have been trained on your particular washer and should be able to realign the door with ease. Hope this is helpful.

-Best Regards-

Ok when this happens what it is is water has leaked into the base of the washer and activated the flood switch.
What you need to do is pull the washer out and lean it 45 degress backwards. This will allow the water to drain from the base so you may need a towel for that part.
Once the water is out the flood switch will reset itself and clear this fault. Then see how it goes from there.
But if it happens again then something is leak under there and you need to find the fault and fix it to sort it.
But if you do the above then you should be able to sort it from there.

Not sure about Electrolux but the door striker or keeper of many front loaders incorporates a timer mechanism that prevents the door opening for a minute after the wash programme has ended.
Inside the striker of my washer, there is a heating element and a bimetal strip and if the mechanism fails when the door is locked it is very difficult to defeat.
On one machine I had to work inside the cabinet with a hammer and a long chisel to break up the striker in order to open the door and replace the striker.

One thought occurs - if your machine is a modern wholly computerised type, it might be necessary to tell the brain a repair has been carried out before the machine will work correctly. That would mean a visit from a service engineer who will connect his laptop...
Perhaps a research call to the experts will shed more light...
