A malfunctioning Electrolux washing machine can be quite a hassle, especially if it fails to advance into the next cycle. This problem can leave you with a pile of wet laundry that is urgently in need of being cleaned. Understanding the possible causes of why your washing machine won’t move to the next cycle can save you both time and money by preventing the needless repair or replacement. We’ll go over some of the possible reasons that Electrolux washing machine may not move to the next cycle and give some advice on how to restore it to normal operation.
The kind of washer you are using will determine the reason a Electrolux washer can’t go into the next cycle.
A top-load Electrolux washer can’t move to the spin and drain cycle if a broken lid switch is making the timer think the washer lid is open. Electrolux washers that fail to complete the cycle might also have a malfunctioning timer or water-level pressure switches that are not working properly.
For the vertical modular (VMW) top-load washer, the shifter assembly that is defective or a malfunctioning drain pump could stop the machine mid-cycle. The washer can also stop mid-cycle in the event that there’s excessive suds.
If you have a front-loader washer an unsound door lock assembly, a malfunctioning main control board, or faulty motor control board can prevent the washer from finishing the cycle. If the washer is aware of an issue, this kind of Electrolux washing machine will send a digital error code to the computer. The cycle stops.
These Repairs May Help Solve the Electrolux Washer Issue
Replace the Electrolux lid on the washer
Top-load Electrolux washer’s lid switch is an safety switch that will check if the lid is closed. The lid has to be shut as the basket spins. in the event that the washer misinterprets that the lid has been opened the machine will not spin and drain after the wash cycle.
Top-load washers need to ensure that the Electrolux washer lid is closed before the motor for the washer can start. The lid is not closed, which prevents certain top-load washers from filling.
Replace the switch in the event that the lid switch doesn’t detect if the lid is closed.
Replace the Electrolux washer-shifter assembly
The shifter, sometimes referred to as the actuator-in-a top-load washer is mounted on the bottom of the gearcase. The motor within the shifter assembly switches the drive system from spin mode to the agitation mode. The shifter’s sensor is able to monitor the position of the drive system throughout the washing cycle. If the motor, sensor or mechanical parts of the assembly fail, the washer stops and signal an error code. Replace the Electrolux shifter assembly in the event that it malfunctions.
Change the Electrolux washer door lock assembly
Electrolux’s front load washer lock has a safety switch to determine if the washer door has been closed , as well as a latch. If any of these components fails when the door is open, the door won’t be locked; if a part fails when the door is closed, the door won’t open. Replace the entire assembly if any component fails.
Replace the main control board that controls your Electrolux washer
The primary Electrolux electronic controller board, sometimes referred to as the mother board, or the mother board, regulates the timing and execution of the washer’s component functions. It controls the fill valves as well as the drive motor, and the drain pump.
Change the Electrolux washer timer
The timer — also called a cycle selector -is the dial which you set to select the cycles on a Electrolux washing machine with mechanical controls. The timer lets the Electrolux washer spin through its cycles, starting from the initial filling stage to the its final spin. Replace the timer if it doesn’t advance the washer through its cycles.
Electrolux washer drain pump can be replaced or repaired
The Electrolux drain pump is used to remove water from the washer at time that is appropriate for the wash cycle. The pump’s bearing could seize and seals can fail, or the impeller blades may break. A belt-driven pump could fail, the seal could fail or the pulley may break or shear. The pump that is failing can create a hum in the event that the washer gets full. In some cases you can fix the pump by clearing it of obstructions as well as fixing wiring problems or replacing a seal. It is possible to replace the pump when it’s not feasible to repair or rebuild it.
Change the Electrolux washer motor controller board
Electrolux’s motor control, also known as the circuit-control boards, is in front load washers. It’s normally located in the bottom of washers next to the drive motor. It regulates the speed of the motor that drives it and the direction it is directed to for spinning and tumble movements. If the motor stops running the motor control board might need to be replaced.
Replace the Electrolux washer water pressure switch
The Electrolux water level pressure switch monitors the water level in the washer. The washer may not fill properly if the water level pressure sensor is damaged. It might not fill in any way or overfill, even until it overflows. If the pressure switch doesn’t accurately monitor and control the water level inside the Electrolux washer, replace it.
