20 Most Recent Electrolux EIFLW55HIW Front Load Washer with IQ-Touch Controls Questions & Answers


Pete Conquest - you saved us!! Thank you!! Your suggestion to use an air compressor in the drain hose to clear the pump clog was genius!! We put a rubber glove over the intake for the hose - popped a hole in it with the air compressor and pushed the air through maximizing the air flow into the hose - it bubbled as you said it would and burped up some sediment from the hose. After that, we successfully drained a few test loads and the error was cleared! All that and no need to take a part the machine or deal with an expensive service visit! Thanks Pete!

Just followed the advice above by removing the 2 screws holding the top on and manually released the front load door. Now to figure out what part I need to replace the door lock mechanism and figure out how to do that.

Thanks!

Sounds like carpet fibres have blocked the top fill hose on the conditioner section - so water doesn't enter the machine by the normal route.
Remove / clean / check the soap drawer - you may need to remove the top fill hose. If water is running but the level isn't getting higher in the machine this will be the problem, not the level switch.

Are you getting fault code E40? Certainly sounds like a door lock problem. Is the spring on the door catch strong enough to operate the door lock? sometime the plastic moulding that holds the door catch mechanism breaks if the door was forced open. Double check the connector on the new electronic door lock. If not his, may be electronic panel problem, or connections pulled of the board while you were fitting the new door lock.

It's possible that your pressure switch is bad. For that model it's Frigidaire OEM Part #134762010. It's about $40 on line.
This manufacturer-approved water level pressure switch (part number 134762010) is for washers.

Water level pressure switch 134762010 senses and controls the water level in the washer.

Unplug the washer and shut off the water supply before installing this part. Wear work gloves to protect your hands.

I have the same problem, I searched and found an answer but closed the page before I saw all these folks having problems. I realize my post is late for most but for future people looking for this answer the page I found with an answer said this with more words. Behind the machine where the water hose enters the machine is a small screen, remove the hose to access this screen and flush out any particles, replace and you should be fine. I now have to find some strong men to move my stacked machines. Hope this helps.

There is likely a fault. If the water is still in the machine then the cycle has not completed. If its prom night and you need the clothes "now" I would unplug the machine, that should release the lock.

Next load I would start with something that can be left in the machine. Use a basic cycle and see what happens. The locking of the door is normal and part of the wash process. The manual "attached link" describes where and when in the process the door will lock. You can try "pause" if the cycle needs to be interrupted.

If it happens again look for an error code. http://manuals.electroluxusa.com/prodinfo_pdf/Webster/137023500en.pdf

First try to reset the lock unplugged the power machine for a few (10) minutes (maybe release the interlock door switch). If this work, them its possible that you need door latch replacement.

To do 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.

Keep us updated.

Thank you for your post, friend!
I understand that your Frigidaire washer will not power on and you have replaced the black box. If your washer is not receiving any power it could either be an issue with your power cord, control panel, or in home circuit. I would suggest making sure that your household circuit breaker is not switched off or shorted. If the circuit is working properly I would recommend having a professional technician come out in order to provide an accurate diagnosis. If you do not have a professional contact I would check your manufacturer's website for additional assistance. I hope this is helpful. -Matt

any cold water going into the machine ?

The "E13" error code on the WFMC series Bosch washer`s refer to a drainage problem as you may or may not already know. ( or in Bosch terms "pump time exceeded" ) What you may have is either a clogged pump, improper detergent being used, ( must use "HE"/lo-sudsing detergent ) hence suds not allowing a proper drain cycle, or wires loose at the pump...the later being the least likely. You haven`t mentioned if you`ve checked the pump...just hoses as you did mention. Anyway, here`s the most likely way to remedy a E13 code. **Unplug the washer from the wall or turn off the breaker before attempting any repairs** Get some towels and if possible a wet/dry vac. If the machine drained, it won't be too bad. If your machine is stuck full of water, I can't say, hopefully you won't get wet. ( maybe you`re lucky enough to be close to a floor drain ) Locate the round door on the front of the machine (about 6" in diameter, lower right corner) Find a drill bit or small screwdriver that fits in the hole in the round door. Insert the bit into the hole in the door. It will push in a tab, it doesn't take much force. Rotate the hole (clockwise) to 6'oclock and it should come free. (the edges are very sharp so be careful or wear chain-mail gloves). Once the door is out of the way you'll be greeted by a 3-4" plastic cap with wings so you can unscrew it by hand. ( you should also see a red ring with a string attached, if you pull this the door should unlatch, but getting the water out first is usually a good plan ) There is a small collector lip at the bottom of the cap, that is where you can hold the wet/dry vac to catch the water. Unscrew slowly so you don't get flooded, until it is unscrewed all the way out. Now pull out the trap and visually inspect the inside of the pump as well as the filter/trap. Hopefully you'll find the item/debris that initiated the error code. After removing any debris or obstruction`s re-install the button trap/lint filter and plug the washer in to power or reset the breaker and give it a test. Run a load and watch for leaks. Leave the pump access door off until you are sure you screwed the cap in tight and there are no leaks. Ultimately you may have a faulty drain pump, but I would certainly start by performing the things I listed first. Let me know if you require further assistance and if not and this indeed solves your problem, please rate the solution I provided accordingly.

Hi friend, thank you for your inquiry!

On an Electrolux washer the error code "E00" stands for No code stored. This could be a miscommunication I would recommend you perform a reset on your washer. You can do this by flipping the household breaker for roughly ten minutes. If resetting the power does not correct the issue, could you please inform me of the new error code or if your washer continues to display "E00". I look forward to assisting you. -Matt
