    I have the same problem, but on removing the locking mechanism there was a small brown mark on the back of the plastic, when I took the cover off the two metal strips were blackened.



    If I replace the locking mechanism will this cure the problem or is there somthing more serious that will cause it to happen again?

Turned off mid cycle. Tried putting back onfor drain, also rinse and restart. Each time get error E40.


Hi.

With AEG washers E40 means defective door lock. Since a faulty door lock switch may go out with vibration you often do not get the error all the time. The door lock switch must be tested and eventually replaced. Call the AEG number listed in the user manual if you want to get in touch with an authorized technician or if you need replacement parts for your washing machine.

Regards.

Electrolux ewf1074 error e40


I've just bought one of these machines, and the manual says the E40 warning means the door is not properly closed. Seems like that would be obvious if it were true, but maybe check that it is closing completely.

Machine keeps saying error


E40 is an error from the door locking mech (interlock).this is the bit behind the port hole door frame at approx 3 o clock pos,where the door striker pin goes through hole.

Held on with 2 screws and you need to remove plastic clamp from door gasket to gain access.

Check the Door Switch/interlock or the WIRING for failure in this case and repair as necessary.

Zanussi IZ12 mid program door light comes on.


E40 is a door interlock fault, it is either faulty or the wiring between it and the main board is at fault,
Only way to open door is to remove top cover, and try to force the door open from the inside, if you can see the door latch, try pushing it with a screw driver or something to release it, worst case scenario, is you will have to break the lock to release the door.
Please rate my fixya solution.
Thanks.

E40 error code


The E40 error code indicates a loss of electrical power usually but not always due to the door not shutting properly or not locking. But, since you smelled burning it could be any electrical short that blew a fuse and shut the machine down. It could also be the motor windings with the internal overload protector shutting it down.
