Are you encountering error codes E40, E41, E42, E43, E44, or E45 on your Electrolux washer? Fear not, as we unravel the mystery behind these codes, specifically pointing to a hiccup in the door lock mechanism. In this DIY guide, we’ll walk you through the troubleshooting process and provide practical solutions to get your washing machine back in action.

Understanding the Culprit: Door Lock Issues

These error codes collectively signal a malfunction in the door lock system. The door lock is a critical component ensuring that your Electrolux washer operates safely and effectively. When faced with E40, E41, E42, E43, E44, or E45, the first step is to inspect the door – make sure it is securely closed.

DIY Solutions for Electrolux Washer Door Lock Error Codes:

  1. Check the Door:

    Ensure the door is firmly closed. If not, secure it properly and restart the washing cycle.

  2. Inspect Wiring Connections:

    Examine the wiring connected to the door lock mechanism. Loose or damaged wires could trigger these error codes. Reconnect or replace as necessary.

  3. Examine the Door Lock Mechanism:

    Carefully inspect the door lock for any visible damage or wear. If the lock appears faulty, a replacement may be required.

  4. Replace the Door Lock Unit:

    If issues persist after checking the door and wiring, consider replacing the door lock unit. This is a straightforward process that can often resolve the problem.

  5. Main PCB Inspection and Replacement:

    If the error codes persist even after replacing the door lock, the main PCB (Printed Circuit Board) may be at fault. Consult a professional technician to inspect and replace the main PCB.
