Question about Electrolux Washing Machines
Electrolux washing machine will run water. Motor sounds like it is working, but the drum will not turn and the door will not unlock. Any ideas on the cause of the issue?
The most likely cause is a broken drive belt. You don't say if it is a front or top loader. For a top loader, pull the machine out, and drop the drain hose into a bucket to empty the machine. Tilt the machine against the wall. Have someone steady it and look underneath. You should see the motor and belt, although some are direct drive.
For a front loader, the belt is accessed from the rear of the machine.

Tips for a great answer:
It is possible that the machine does not start off the cycle because there are errors or back feedback from the inputs. For the program to start up the main program controller must initiate the INLET valve to open up and allow water to flow into. If this does not happen then the voltage at the inlet valve must be checked or the fault relates to no voltage from the controller. This means the controller is a suspect.The noise when the machine is switched can be that drum or the motor interupting when switched on. So check the program timer unit before the cycle is initiated.
If the water flows then the flow should be good, if not the inlet valve is bad or there is dirt in the filter. Also check the flow at the inlet of the water line. Once the water comes into the system the WATER LEVEL SENSOR - normally a pressure switch- must activate at the preset/chosen level to give the signal to the program controller to switch on the motor. What is most important for the motor to start functioning is that the door switch must be ON when the door is shut or this will be an error for starting the motor for rinse and wash.
Finally after the wash the drain valve will be activated, the water is allowed to come in to rinse and then finally the dry spin with the drain valve/pump activated so as to drain off all the water from the clothes during the spin.
Make sure that a fault in any of the cycle will relate to the specified action, so check the command from the program module and then the executing device be it the valve or motor or pump.
