Question about Electrolux Washing Machines
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
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
Door interlock faulty, wiring faulty or PCB faulty.

Press and hold the 'Delay' and 'Extra Rinse' buttons together and it will 'unlock' your control panel (this is a tamper proof feature for the kiddies)

you need to hold the option and extra rinse buttons simultaneously for 6 seconds...you will see the padlock symbol go and then use your machine as usual

Go back and check your connections. If you had the machine working previously and none of these issues were there before you cleaned out the drain area of the unit then your first step would be to check the connection to the pump as well as your connections going from the control to the door area as well. If after you have checked all your connections to the pump the door lock assembly, the control and the touch pad the unit is still doing the same thing then message me back. Before you do any of the checking of connections in the unit first hold down delay and extra rinse buttons together for 3-5 seconds. This usually will unlock the control if the control is locked on the unit. Also if the delay and extra rinse and the checking of your connections does not solve your issue then also message me back with the number of times the pause button is flashing and how often it flashes as well. If you have any further questions message me those back as well. I await your reply Thanks again Rick
