The door will not open on my Electrolux washing machine
How much trouble do you want to go to?
If you just want to preserve the washing, then simply put it on another cycle tonight and that will keep it fresh until the callout turns up to fix it.
The next clever step is to power the machine off at the mains for 10 minutes. Depriving it of power MAY release the interlock door switch even if the cycle didnt.
Final attempt to get to it... Turn off power, unplug at the mains. drag the machine out so you can see the back. Remove the 2 screws that hold the top on, pull back or tap the top forward (depending on the model) to unclip it. Peer inside. You will see the door switch inside the chassis exactly in line with the door handle on the outside. See if you manually make the mechanism release, or if you have a stubby philips screwdriver, you can probably unscrew the switch complely.
If you trust yourself NEVER to open the door in the middle of a cycle, the machine will of course function without a switch. Just so long as you recognise that you will flood the place if you do open it with water in. Also if you put your hand inside dirung a wash (Or worse still a spin) the power of the motor combined with the weight of the wet washing will rip the arm clean off a fully grown man, so if you doubt yourself or you have kids (or kids may visit) don't leave it like this.

Electrolux EWF1074 with Error EH0. After 2 seconds
In case of error in the mains, or like what happend today at my house, the power lines went partially down, providing too low voltage, EH0 or EH1 will occour. If you also notice that the lightning indoor is somewhat dimmed during this error, the voltage is too low.

Hi Ihave an electrolux EWD 1477 washer/ dryer. It keeps showing up an error E90 and starts beeping and stops working? Any ideas how to fix it
? Thanks kindly
E90 is family error code visible to the customers. It is necessary to read the error in the service mode so please proceed with the following procedure for rapid reading of alarm codes:
Press and hold down START/PAUSE and the option button nearest to the START/PAUSE button for at least two seconds!
After that the display will show one of the following errors that are more precise:
E91, E92 - Communication incongruence between main board and display board (versions not compatible). Posible causes: wirings, main board or control/disply board.
E93 - Incorrect configuration of appliance. Posible causes: Incorrect configuration data; electronic board faulty.
E94 - Incorrect configuration of washing cycle.
Posible causes: Incorrect configuration data; electronic board faulty.
E95 - Communication error between microprocessor and
EEPROM. Posible causes: Electronic board faulty.
E97 - Incongruence between programme selector and
cycle configuration. Posible causes: Faulty electronic board (Wrong configuration data).
Considering that this is a complicated fault, my advice is to contact an authorized service center.They have special equipment such as an interface that allows them to upgrade software in your appliance. If you are not doing anything on the appliance before the failure, the only thing you can check is the contacts between wiring and electronics.

How to get the clothes to spin dry in Color wash mode?
Program the machine for white wash and turn down temperature and duration manually, and tune up the sentrifuge program to maximum RPM.
It helps to use a machine with large drum and minimum 1600 RPM. Large diameter of the drum is more efficient than a small diameter drum at the same RPM.
