Hoi, we have a washing machine Electrolux EW880F. Want not start anymore. Starting-light blinks and door-lock works not. Can you help me ? Thanks

Door lock assembly has to be replaced. If the switch there is not closed, no power will go to machine. Will not operate.

Hi i have Electrolux washing machine model EWF14811 the display is not working what can i do ?

I've never seen a model EWF14811 so I believe that it is a EWF1481 model washing machines.
Unfortunately, you have to replace the entire electronics because the LCD display is part of the PCB.
Also, before replacing I suggest you to check contacts on the LCD display which can be weakened by moisture,... etc.


Electrolux cde7700lw0 dryer

Good Afternoon Brain, this is Z. I am happy to assist you!

I understand that your Electrolux dryer (CDE7700LW0) door indicates it is open and your dryer will not operate. Let's try resetting your dryer by either unplugging it or flipping the household circuit breaker off. It is best to wait approximately ten minutes and then turn on your dryer. Select a normal cycle and verify if the dryer will start. If your appliance will not operate then it possibly have a faulty door lock assembly or a communication problem with the control board. In this regard, I would suggest contacting an Authorized Service Technician that will be able to assist you in the diagnosis of your appliance.

I own a 1Q-Touch Front-Load Electrolux washing machine. The door won't open. What can I do?

Hello Elizabeth P Cochran - Try resetting the unit by unplugging it or flipping the household circuit breaker off. Wait approximately ten minutes and restart unit. If the door does not open, then it sounds like the washer is possibly experiencing a communication problem with the control board, wiring failure or faulty door lock. Contact a professional to move forward accurately to properly diagnose/repair unit.



Problem closing the door
Door lock faulty
Wiring faulty
Main board faulty
Cycle is paused Start

Model fwt645rhso will agitate but won't drain out, on spin cycle washer spins one way, stops goes back the other way, but water will not drain out. Does not rapidly spin on final cycle. Any...

There's an auxiliary switch in the door lock.switch assembly that is activated at the end of the wash cycle for the machine to advance to the spin cycle. The machine will NEVER advance to the spin cycle unless the auxiliary switch is activated as a safety feature to prevent the door from opening during a high-speed spin cycle that may result in physical injury. The drum tumbles back and forth while the machine control checks the auxiliary if activated but since it's not, the control will not command the motor speed control to spin the drum at high speed. These symptoms may indicate a faulty door lock/switch assembly and may need replacement.

Electrolux ewf1481 door seal twisted

This sounds as if one of the top spring hangers has come out of its location point.If you turn off the power and remove the top lid,then look into the machine you may still see one spring connected and the other one may have fallen into the base of the machine which you will have to retrieve and refix,by lifting up the drum and resitting it in the hole at the top.Check also that the rear counterbalance block if fitted and the front one have not come loose and the bottom struts are ok.This fault can occur after an uneven load has been in the machine.Some of the Models have a keep plate fitted to stop the springs from un - seating.
You can then inspect the door seal for any damage.

Hope this helps.
