There are certain safety features that stop an Electrolux washer from running if the door isn’t closed properly. Here’s what to do if this is the problem that you’ve having.
Start by unplugging the washer from the outlet.
The drive motor in a washer has an essential function that makes sure the unit cleans your clothing as best it can.
The drive motor is the part that moves the washer basin. It agitates the basin during the washing cycle and then spins the basin during the spin cycle.
If you’ve got problems with the drive motor, your Electrolux washer won’t turn on or function properly.
The only way to know for sure that the drive motor is the problem is to take apart the washing machine. And then, you’ll need to test the drive motor with a multimeter to make sure that it’s working properly.
With that said, unless you have experience repairing Electrolux washers, it’s best to leave this to a professional repair technician.
Another reason why an Electrolux washer won’t turn on may be because of faulty control knobs.
If the control knobs are broken and not making a proper connection with the control panel’s internal circuitry, the washer won’t be able to determine the setting or whether or not it should start.
Here’s how to fix a control knob in an Electrolux front load washer.
Like the other parts we’ve mentioned, the control board is an important feature of your Electrolux washing machine.
If not working properly, it can stop your washer from turning on and running a normal wash cycle.
To fix your Electrolux washer control board, you can try to reset the unit by unplugging the appliance from the power outlet, waiting a few minutes, and then plugging the washer back into the outlet.
If this doesn’t resolve the problem, contact a professional appliance repair service. Replacing a control board is tricky and can create more serious issues if incorrectly installed.
When an appliance like an Electrolux washer doesn’t turn on, it’s tempting to try and fix the problem yourself.
The thing is, if you’re not sure of what you’re doing or you’re not confident in making appliance repairs, there’s a chance that something could go wrong. And obviously, you don’t want to risk causing more damage to your appliance or replacing the wrong part.
