E40 relates to door lock faulty or not closing - you probably need a new door lock, but check the catch on the door hasn't snapped off first. You will also get E40 if you try to start the machine with the door open.

SOURCE: 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.

I've just bought one of these machines, and the manual says the E40 warning means the door is not properly closed. Seems like that would be obvious if it were true, but maybe check that it is closing completely.

Hi,
The Error E40 warning means the door is not properly closed. The E40 error code indicates a loss of electrical power usually but not always due to the door not shutting properly or not locking. But, since you smelled burning it could be any electrical short that blew a fuse and shut the machine down. It could also be the motor windings with the internal overload protector shutting it down.
Thank you for contacting Fixya.com

Built in machine. It show error e40. What does it meant


Hello Monica, thank you for your post!
Based off the information you have provided your Electrolux washer is displaying an error code of “E40”. I am showing that an “E40” error code means this could be an issue with your door swicth or main control board. I would recommend performing a reset on your washer and you can do that by disconnecting the power cord for at least ten minutes. If you continue to receive the error code once power has been restored you may need to seek assistance from a professional technician for a proper diagnosis. Hopefully this information is helpful to you. –Matt

Error code E40 on a Electrolux Front Loader Washing Machine EWF1090 What does it mean and how can I fix it?


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
programme):
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

Possible causes:
Door interlock faulty, wiring faulty or PCB faulty.
