Question about Washing Machines

1 Answer

Electrolux EWW1486HDW. Every time it's turned on, why does it go straight to 1 minute, then locks and unlocks?

Every time the machine is powered on with the on/off switch it automatically tries to start a cycle, the time is blank for a few seconds then shows 1 minute, the door locks and about 15 seconds later the machine does nothing in between it goes to 0 and unlocks as though the cycle has finished. I cannot change any settings such as cycle type, temperature, spin, drain etc. Every time I try to change anything it immediately tries to start the cycle again, and results in the same 1 minute lock unlock. If I do this with the door open the machine continuously tries to lock the door. I've tried unplugging the machine and tried a number of button press combinations but can't seem to reset anything? I've tried opening and closing the door at least 6 times within 10 seconds as I've seen elsewhere but again nothing has changed!

I have an Electrolux dryer model number EDC2086GLW and I can't get it to restart after stopping it 3 minutes short of a cycle. The display read "3" with the lock/lightbulb symbol(looks like a keyhole)

6.1 Child lock function
This option prevents children to play with the appliance while a programme operates. The programme knob and the touchpads are locked. Only the on/off button is unlocked.

Activating the child lock option
1. Press the on/off button to activate the
appliance.
2. Press and hold touchpads (A) and (D) at the same time until the child lock indicator comes on.
• It is possible to deactivate the child lock option while a programme operates. Press and hold the same touchpads until the child lock indicator goes off.

Electrolux front loader EFLW417SIW that will fill & run for 3 minutes then the time remaining goes to 1 min. And turns off. I have power cycled / unplugged the machine.

Heater problems abort the wash cycle and end the program. May be faulty heater. Does machine drain and spin on spin only cycle? check pump if not - or motor.

Electrolux oven control lock won't unlock

Good Afternoon Friend,

I see that you are having trouble with the control lock not unlocking on your Electrolux range. I suggest resetting your appliance, by shutting the power off at the circuit breaker, for 3-5 minutes. Once you have restored power, the first thing you will need to do is set the clock. You will do this by entering in the time and pressing the start button. If the door has not unlocked, try pressing and holding down the control lock button for 5-10 seconds. I ask that you please follow up with a comment on the post, at your convenience, to advise if further troubleshooting is needed or if your range status has changed successfully. Hope this is helpful.

-Best Regards-
