Question about Electrolux Washing Machines
It is an Electrolux EWF 8040W washing machine
Obviously, an alarm is displayed after some time.
The alarm is displayed by a repeated flashing sequence of the START / PAUSE button with yellow and red light (0,5 seconds on, 0,5 seconds off with a 2,5 second pause between the sequences).
• button indicator START / PAUSE with yellow light indicates the first digit of the alarm code (family)
• button indicator START / PAUSE with red light indicates the second digit of the alarm code (internal number of the family).

Press and hold the 'Delay' and 'Extra Rinse' buttons together and it will 'unlock' your control panel (this is a tamper proof feature for the kiddies)

you need to hold the option and extra rinse buttons simultaneously for 6 seconds...you will see the padlock symbol go and then use your machine as usual

Hold reset and start buttons down, while turning on. Hold down for about 10 seconds.
If you're getting an E90 error code, which means communications error, it means you have a dodgy connection between the main board and the control panel.
Disconnect the power completely, open up the top of the machine and reseat the plugs on both ends on the blue ribbon cable connecting the front panel display to the main board. (The main board is the big white plastic thing with all the wires running into it).
Do the reset steps when turning on again, should be good to go, otherwise it's a bit more serious and you'll need the tech back.
