Electrolux Washing Machine Troubleshooting

Electrolux Washing Machine Troubleshooting. A washing machine is a large drum that fills with water and then drains, wrings out wet clothes by agitating them in the middle of rolling them over a tub at the bottom of the drum.

The two main types are top-loading washers which have an agitator in the middle of their drums and front-loading washers which have rollers instead to achieve this effect.

Each wash comes with its own cycle, Out of all these different cycles each one has its own purpose: there’s the cycle for normal wash clothes and one for more heavy-duty things like bedding.

Once you’ve used a cycle it will automatically go through another process to finish it off called drain and spin. Where water is drained out and any remaining spun material refloats back onto your clean laundry.

The motor coupling connects the motor to the washer transmission. Its primary responsibility is to connect these two parts in such a way that neither the motor nor the transmission wears out under normal circumstances.

The motor coupling can also fail due to regular wear and tear which causes it to detach from both parts; for this reason, check it before concluding that there are any other issues with your washing machine.

If your washing machine has a broken motor coupling, go ahead and replace it.

The door lock basically secures the washer door shut and prevents it from opening during operation. Once you’ve closed the washer’s door, the washing process can begin.

If your washer door lock is broken, your washer will not open properly after you close its doors. The door lock can fail either mechanically or electrically.

Inspect the door lock for any damage, and replace it with a new one if necessary. To determine if there’s a problem with the electrical components of the door lock, test to see if they’re working using a multimeter connected to each of them on one side and then one wire on the other;

if they show no current flow through that wire then you know there is an issue so have them replaced as soon as possible.

Electrolux Washer Will Not Spin

The motor control board provides power to the motor. If the motor control board is defective, it may not function properly or may not work at all.

First, check the control board for burned-out components. You’ll want to ensure that the control board is providing power to the motor.

In order to determine if the motor control board is defective, ensure that it is providing power to the motor.

If your repair guide says so and suggests this next step, you should identify whether or not a fault exists within the control board: by ensuring that it is providing power as well as by making sure that it has functional circuits and devices connected to one another after removing its cover.

Once you have done so, you could proceed with fixing your faulty washing machine.

The lid switch assembly prevents the washer from spinning when the lid is opened. A broken lid switch assembly will prevent the washer from spinning.

Check the components on or near the lid switch assembly with the probes held close together with a multimeter in continuity mode.

Whenever the damaged parts cannot maintain a continuous connection, replace them with new ones.

Electrolux Washer Will Not Drain

A coin trap is built into some washers so coins won’t fall down the drain. The coin trap should be checked on a regular basis and cleaned if necessary.

If locks of hair begin to accumulate in the coin trap, it will clog. When this happens, the washer will not drain properly.

If clothes refuse to drain or if they don’t seem to be draining properly and your unit has a coin trap that can be removed, it’s important to remove the coin trap and clean it thoroughly.

First check the drain hose to see if it’s kinked, twisted, or bent. If it is, straighten it out and make sure it’s not in a position where it might get in the way.

Next, remove the drain hose from your machine and check that there are no obstructions or clothing fibers caught up inside.

If there are any problems with the actual pipe you’ll either need to replace the old one (which can be expensive) or try to clear anything which is blocking its route through your appliance.

Electrolux Washer Will Not Start

Inspect the line fuses first to see if they are damaged. Fuse locations vary by model and make of device, so you might have to consult your user guide for information about where yours are located. Identify a blown fuse by using a multimeter to check for connection between each side of the fuse.

If fuses are used in place of circuit breakers in your laundry room, you might be able to switch them out yourself depending on what type of switches they are.

Otherwise, call an electrician if you aren’t sure whether or not it is safe for you to replace one.

Thermal fuse If the washer overheats, the thermal fuse will blow. Line fuse If the line fuse blows, the washer won’t start.

Test for continuity Uses a multimeter to test it for continuity. Replace it with a new one if it doesn’t have continuity. Resolve The underlying issue must be resolved so that the new fuse doesn’t blow as well.
