Question about Electrolux EIED55HIW Electric Front Load Dryer with IQTouch Controls Isl

3 Answers

I own a 1Q-Touch Front-Load Electrolux washing machine. The door won't open. What can I do?

It became hard to use the disc to open the door, so I began to used my knee to softly press against the door and it opened easily. Won't open at all now.

Hello Elizabeth P Cochran - Try resetting the unit by unplugging it or flipping the household circuit breaker off. Wait approximately ten minutes and restart unit. If the door does not open, then it sounds like the washer is possibly experiencing a communication problem with the control board, wiring failure or faulty door lock. Contact a professional to move forward accurately to properly diagnose/repair unit.

Electrolux 1q touch front load washer, I hear the motor going but the drum is not spinning and the door is locked like it's still in cycle.

This is Fixya - not give up and call someone for a simple repair. Take the panel off the back of the washer and look at the belt. Its a good chance it is broken. Order another one and roll it on with a lot of arm strength. $40.

My electrolux ewf 1481 front loader wont spin

Open the flap, bottom right of the front panel and check the filter is clear. Most machines will not spin until they have expelled all the water. You may want to check the hose is not block and any connections to the sink if it's not on a standpipe.
Most new machines have quite sensitive out of balance detection so if it an odd load try again but add a few extra items to allow the machine to distribute the load evenly prior to spin. Hope this helps
