Electrolux Washer Error Codes

Electrolux Washer Error Code E31

When your Electrolux washer displays the E31 error code, it signals a potential issue with the pressure switch. The pressure switch plays a crucial role in regulating water levels during different cycles. A malfunctioning pressure switch can disrupt this process, causing the E31 error to appear on your display.

DIY Solution #1: Replace the Pressure Switch

The first DIY solution involves replacing the pressure switch. Here’s a straightforward guide to help you through the process:

  1. Safety First: Ensure the washer is unplugged before starting any repairs.
  2. Locate the Pressure Switch: Refer to your washer’s manual to find the pressure switch’s location. It’s typically situated near the top or back of the machine.
  3. Remove Old Pressure Switch: Carefully disconnect wires and tubing from the old pressure switch. Remove the switch from its mounting position.
  4. Install New Pressure Switch: Place the new pressure switch in the same position. Reconnect wires and tubing securely.
  5. Power Up: Plug in the washer and check if the E31 error persists.

DIY Solution #2: Check the Main PCB

If replacing the pressure switch doesn’t resolve the issue, the main PCB (Printed Circuit Board) might be at fault. Here’s how to inspect and potentially replace it:

  1. Safety First: Ensure the washer is unplugged.
  2. Locate the Main PCB: Refer to your washer’s manual to find the main PCB. It’s often positioned at the back of the machine.
  3. Visual Inspection: Look for any obvious signs of damage, such as burnt areas or loose connections.
  4. Testing: If you have a multimeter, test the continuity of the PCB. If it shows signs of failure, you may need to replace it.
  5. Professional Assistance: If you’re uncomfortable with PCB testing or replacement, it’s advisable to seek professional assistance.
