Electrolux Washer Error Codes

Electrolux Washer Error Code EC1

Encountering the EC1 error code on your Electrolux washer can be a perplexing moment, but fear not – we’re here to guide you through understanding and resolving this issue. This code indicates that the main PCB (Printed Circuit Board) is receiving a signal from the flow meter, suggesting an irregular water flow into the washing machine.

Decoding EC1: The Culprit – Water Inlet Valves:

The primary culprit behind the EC1 error code is often attributed to malfunctioning water inlet valves. These valves play a crucial role in regulating the water flow into your Electrolux washer. When they fail, the communication between the flow meter and the main PCB goes awry, triggering the EC1 alert.

DIY Solution: Replacing Water Inlet Valves:

To tackle this issue head-on, a practical DIY solution involves replacing the faulty water inlet valves. Begin by disconnecting the power supply and water source to ensure safety. Locate the valves, typically positioned at the rear of the washer, and carefully remove any connected hoses. Swap out the old valves with new, compatible replacements.

Next Steps: If Replacement Fails:

In some cases, a straightforward valve replacement may not completely resolve the EC1 error. If you find the issue persists after valve replacement, the next step involves addressing the main PCB. Unfortunately, if the PCB is not receiving accurate signals even after valve replacement, it may need to be replaced as well.
