Question about Electrolux Washing Machines

EWS1046 doesn't start, keeps clicking and returns E40 message when I try to launch a programm

I have an EWS1046 Electrolux machine. Today after it finished the main cycle, I set it to a rinse cycle, but in the middle of it, the power in the apartment went off (only the sockets though; the lights kept working), and it's been nothing but a headache since then (I fixed the socket power issue immediately, btw). But when I try to start the rinse cycle, it starts clicking and then ends up displaying an E40 message, which, according to the manual, means the door isn't properly locked. And of course, the machine has locked the door so I can't open it unless I unplug it (and choose to face the water in the drum). How bad does it sound? How do I fix this?

The power surge might have ruined the relay or board

How to do with E40 code of Electrolux EWF 1074?

Family error code E40 is visible to customers and (could be E41,E42,E43,E44 and E45 only visible in service mode) means problem with open door or door interlock.
I suggest rapid reading alarm code when appliance is in normal operating mode (e.g. during the execution of the washing
programme):
Press and hold down START/PAUSE and any of the option buttons for at least two seconds: the LEDs initially switch off, and then display the flashing sequence corresponding to the alarm.
The alarm sequence continues as long as the two buttons are held down.
E41 - Door open
E42 - Problems of door closure
E43 - Interlock power supply triac faulty
E44 - Door interlock sensor faulty
E45 - Door interlock sensing circuit triac faulty

Possible causes:
Door interlock faulty, wiring faulty or PCB faulty.

Error e40 come up on my washing machine zwd 1472 s

Hello,
E40 normally points to a fault at the door switch,sometimes when the door switch fault occurs it can also cause damage to the main P.C.B.(Programmer).As this machine is still in the major parts warranty it would be advisable to get in touch with Electrolux.

Display comes up with e40 on the Zwf16581w zanussi washing machine

Hello,

E40 is a common fault relating to the door switch,how old is your machine because that model was first made in 2007 until the present so it may be worth your while getting in touch with your dealer or Electrolux.The problem is that if you get a fault on the door switch you may well replace it and find all is ok but the original door fault could have caused damage to the main Programmer.

Good luck and I hope I helped.

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.

Zanussi washing machine won't start E10, E40 & E50 at times

It was suggested that the pump had failed and taken out the programmer with it - expensive! Wife wouldn't wait, and bought new machine. Problem almost solved - anyone want an out of order washing machine?
