If your Electrolux washer is not responding begin by excluding the obvious. Is it connected? Does the circuit have a problem? To test whether the outlet’s electrical circuit is the issue you can plug a hairdryer or another electrical device into it. If the dryer doesn’t work, the wiring within the outlet is at fault. Get an electrician involved to fix the electrical outlet. The issue with wiring could be within the washer if the hair dryer isn’t able to function. These are the steps to confirm the wiring within your Electrolux washer:
- Unplug the Electrolux washer. Make sure to examine the power cable for damage. If the power cord is damaged, replace it.
- Verify the wiring connections to the control board’s main circuit or timer. Reconnect any loose wires.
- Make sure you check the connections to the wiring between your main control board (Electrolux washer) and the user interface board. Reconnect any wires from the user interface that are loose. You may need to replace the control board that controls your main appliance or the user interface board, in the event that the wiring connections are in good condition.
We recommend that you have an experienced service technician test the Electrolux washing machine control board and user interface board as well as the Electrolux washer timer prior to replacing control components. Testing the controls usually requires live voltage checks. Because they can be risky, we do not recommend conducting live voltage tests on your Electrolux washer.
Replace the Electrolux washer main control board: The main control board, sometimes referred to the mother board, is responsible for the execution and timing of the washer’s components. It is responsible for the fill valves as well as the drive motor, and the drain pump.
Replace the Electrolux washer timer: The timer -is also known as a selector is the dial used to control the cycle of a Electrolux washer with mechanical controls. The washer moves through its cycles starting with the filling up until the final spin using the timer. If the timer doesn’t move the washer throughout its cycle, replace it.
Replace the Electrolux washer’s user interface board: The user interface board contains the buttons that you press to start the washing cycle. Replace the user interface board if one or more of the buttons aren’t working.
