Water Inlet Valve
The Water Inlet Valve of your Electrolux washing machines is used to supply the tub with hot, cold or warm water. The solenoids of the electric motor control the valve. They are controlled by the electronic control board, the timer and the water level control/water selector switch as well as the pressure switch. The water inlet valve could be the problem if your Electrolux washer fills constantly during a cycle. If your Electrolux washer is filling up and fill, the water inlet valve may be the cause. The water inlet valve may be defective if the washer fills continually. If the washer stops filling and stops filling, then the issue is caused by the circuit electrical that controls the valve. How to check the water inlet valve within the Electrolux washing machine with a multi-meter

- Locate and pull out the valve for water intake. It’s typically located right behind the hose connectors and you’ll need to take off the back panel to get it in place.
- Examine the valve visually for any signs of damage or wear. The valve has screens in it. Examine these screens for any debris, do this carefully as the screens can’t be replaced and if they get damaged you will need to replace the entire valve.
- Make use of a multimeter for touching the valve’s terminals ports by using Rx1. You should receive a different reading for every model. Consult your manual to learn what measurement you should receive.
- You will need a replacement Electrolux valve for water inlet when the valve is damaged or your test results do not align with the recommendations.
Water Level Switch & Pressure Switch & Air Dome Tube
The water level switch is a switch that activates by pressure that is used to determine the correct water level in the tub. The control panel is likely to include this element. It will be connected to the tub with a hose, or air dome tube. The switch can be found under the tub in Electrolux washers, which have an electronic control. As the water fills in the tub, it will compress the air inside the tube. It will then push against the diaphragm in the switch. The switch controls the water inlet valve and close the valve at the appropriate level of water. The washer could overfill if it is damaged or leaky. The switch could be damaged and cause the washer to fill overfilling. How do I check the level of water in an Electrolux washer machine:
- You’ll be working with electrical components so make sure to disconnect the washing machine from the power source before you start.
- To locate and remove the water-level switch and air dome tube that is in your Electrolux washer, simply open the cabinet. After removal, plug in one end of the air dome tube, put it into water, and blow through the other end. A hose that’s not damaged won’t contain any bubbles that come out of it.
- Inspect the valve and hose for wear, cracks, or damage.
- If you find any problems when performing the checks above, you may need a Electrolux replacement water switch for the level. In the end, a washing machine that doesn’t stop running out of water can be frustrating and a costly problem to deal with. It’s possible to save time as well as cash by understanding the root of the issue and taking the appropriate steps to fix these issues.
