Just followed the advice above by removing the 2 screws holding the top on and manually released the front load door. Now to figure out what part I need to replace the door lock mechanism and figure out how to do that.

Thanks!

SOURCE: Electrolux front load washer door won't

First try to reset the lock unplugged the power machine for a few (10) minutes (maybe release the interlock door switch). If this work, them its possible that you need door latch replacement.

To do it, turn off power, unplug at the mains. Drag the machine out so you can see the back. Remove the 2 screws that hold the top on, pull back or tap the top forward (depending on the model) to unclip it. Peer inside. You will see the door switch inside the chassis exactly in line with the door handle on the outside. See if you manually make the mechanism release, or if you have a stubby philips screwdriver, you can probably unscrew the switch complely.

Keep us updated.

Electrolux washer error code E42

The E42 error indicates a problem with the door lock mechanism. If the door was closed, did you hear the lock attempt to engage? If you heard the lock, check the door strike. If the strike is good, replace the door lock. If the lock didn't attempt to engage, check the wiring between the door lock and the control board. If the wiring is well seated and the wires have continuity, replace the door lock. If the replacement lock doesn't solve the problem, then replace the main control board. (You should find a diagram with the wiring inside the unit near the control board.) If you have broken wires in the wiring harness, replace the wiring.

Please add a comment with the model of your washer if you want me to point you to any parts/price lists.

I hope this helps.

Electrolux w455h washing machine is comming error 45 moter not floow..what is the reason comming like this????thanks...

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.

Isyour washing machine displaying an error code? If so, try using the owner's manual to decipher the code and you may beable to easily diagnose the problem. The problem could be as simple as the doorbeing slightly ajar, the machine is in pause mode, or the spin selector isstuck.

My magtag 5000 series washer is flashing error code F21, It was in the middle of a wash cycle and now the door is locked and it won't open. How do I at least get the door open. I have unplugged the

Unplug the washer. Then plug it back in and press the button that turns it off. This should unlock the door. Same thing happened on mine and there was a kink in the drain hose. Once I unkinked the hose, unplugged it, plugged it back in, turned it off, then I was able to run a drain & spin cycle to get the water out of the load that was in the washer. I then ran a full wash cycle (they'd gotten stuck in the first drain & spin cycle of a wash) and everything seems to be fine now.
