Try turning the main power off at the socket for 5 mins - the door may open then , if not turn the power back on and see what happens.
i had this problem on an Electrolux and it worked.

SOURCE: unusual display on panel (padlock) machine can't be programmed door is not locked however

i just went through the same thing.......you need to hold the option and extra rinse buttons simultaneously for 6 seconds, this will unlock it.....so turn the machine on and press the two icons, dont worry about the beeping and flashing after 6 seconds the padlock symbol will go and you can use the machine as usual.....i wish they put that 'minor detail' in the manual...cheers!!

Why wont my ewf 1080 electrolux spin


Most likely the washing machine is stuck in Hold mode. Check if you have the spin speed knob at the correct setting.
Manual is available from here

My Electrolux EWF 1074 wont spin I have voltage at the motor but no go


If you have been able to check the motor with an external supply and found that it was working , then perhaps the control board has to be checked. Please test the motor, if it runs freely perhaps the drive is stuck , check the spindle assembly , could be jammed or the bearings could be faulty

My electrolux EWF 1074 washing machine suddenly doesn't start. When I load and press start button it changes to pause in a second, and it gives me error if I press start button again. There's no...


Hi jaejin_a_jun,

There are 3 likely causes.

1) Is the door firmly closed, it could be the door lock is not activated properly - Please check.

2) Is the Water open at the tap - Please open it fully

3) Is the Inlet hose or Outlet hose kinked? - Please straighten it

If these check out well, it could mean a possible component failure.

To check the drain pump (attached to drain hose at bottom) and Inlet hose (attached to inlet hose at top inner cavity) attached direct power to the 2 points found on each.

To chek door lock, check for power from the PCB to it via a Multimeter.

Kind Regards

Electrolux EWF 1074 - the white plug won't come


Hi from retired Englishman in SW France,
Had the same problem with our Bosch, cap would not even turn!
Suggestions-
pour anticalc/limescale fluid into any gap there is around the cap. Empty the machine and you can switch it off providing the door is open! Then pour the contents of at least 2 sachets of proprietary anticalc powder/liquid into the drum direct together with a kettle full of boiling water. Leave overnight at the very least. The following day run just a spin cycle as then there will be no water diluting the mix. This mix will go through the filter and motor and is likely to help release the filter/cap. If you feel like it, do the overnight again. If nothing else it will ensure that the heater element is clean!
I had to spend a couple of hours gently turning the cap back and forth until it finally released its hold- but the filter did not remain attached to the cap by its rubber ring. More patience, anticalc fluid and all was revealed!
I now run an anticalc clean regularly............which reminds me..............!
If this has assisted you please consider a 4 thumbs up for the rating.
Thanks and good luck!

My electrolux ewf 1481 front loader wont spin


Open the flap, bottom right of the front panel and check the filter is clear. Most machines will not spin until they have expelled all the water. You may want to check the hose is not block and any connections to the sink if it's not on a standpipe.
Most new machines have quite sensitive out of balance detection so if it an odd load try again but add a few extra items to allow the machine to distribute the load evenly prior to spin. Hope this helps
