SOURCE: Hi - My Electrolux XL
if you have no power going to the control panel then it would be your plug that your having the problem with cord of the machine this is a very common thing to happen inb machines simply find where the plug goes into the back by removeing the top panel and assure that you have power coming in to the unit if you have any further questions message me back and pleae remember to rank how this opinion has helped it allows me to continue to help others with similar situations Thanks again Rick

The control panel may need to be replaced, this is a fairly common occurrence.

Hi from retired Englishman in SW France,
(please read all)
You have not mentioned the filter so I would gently suggest as a first step that you clean the drain motor/pump 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 and generic 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!). These panels are either held on by (plasic) screws or will just pull off. Most filters 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!

You will need to replace the pump assembly. Here is the pump to order. There is no fix for the leak.
The part comes with a 365 day, any part, any reason return policy.

Tips for a great answer:
Hello - Washer not filling with water can be caused by many reasons. Most common cause is a faulty switch that doesn't allow the value inside turn or a kinked fill hose. Other possibilities can be water valve faults, faulty control board, pressure switch or wiring failure. Are the house valves turn on fully? Contact a professional to move forward accurately?
