Question about Electrolux EW1000i Front Load Washer
How much trouble do you want to go to?
If you just want to preserve the washing, then simply put it on another cycle tonight and that will keep it fresh until the callout turns up to fix it.
The next clever step is to power the machine off at the mains for 10 minutes. Depriving it of power MAY release the interlock door switch even if the cycle didnt.
Final attempt to get to 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.
If you trust yourself NEVER to open the door in the middle of a cycle, the machine will of course function without a switch. Just so long as you recognise that you will flood the place if you do open it with water in. Also if you put your hand inside dirung a wash (Or worse still a spin) the power of the motor combined with the weight of the wet washing will rip the arm clean off a fully grown man, so if you doubt yourself or you have kids (or kids may visit) don't leave it like this.

Mine only smell mildewy if I leave them in more than an hour before drying. My old top load washer did the same thing. I dont wash unless I can immediately switch to the dryer.

Thank you for your inquiry, Charles!
From my understanding you need to clean your Electrolux front load washer. The best way to clean out your washer is to use a hot water cycle and a cup of bleach. I would also recommend cleaning the front gasket using a water and bleach solution. You can visit a home store to see if they offer any type of washing machine cleaner as well. I hope this information is helpful to you. -Matt
