Question about Electrolux 4.2 Cu. Ft. Front Load Washer with IQ-Touch Controls featuring Perfect Steam
Faded lcd screen, can barely see it and want to order and replace so the options show bright again. Help please
Thank you for your post, Glen Wagner!
In order to get proper replacement parts for your Electrolux washer you would need to have the model number available. I would recommend reaching out to the manufacturer, to guarantee the parts are correct. If you need assistance with installing the parts you may want to consult a professional for proper installation of replacement components. I hope this information has been beneficial. -Matt

Testimonial: "Thank you, I will get the model number, but cant aford a repairman to do the work right now. I would like an instructional video or a Manuel to show me how to make this repair."
Cleaning lint will fix the dim LCD display ???

Hi from retired Englishman in SW France,
I do not know your particular model but I would gently suggest as a first step that you clean the drain motor 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 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!) and most 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!
