Electrolux Washing Machine Drain Pump Not Working — Solved
If your Electrolux washing machine drain pump isn’t working, it could be as a result of an improperly plugged wire connector. Here’s how to solve this issue…
Step 1. Before beginning this procedure, ensure that your appliance is unplugged from the power outlet in order to prevent electrocution.
Step 2. With the help of another person, carefully pull the machine forwards to get more working space.
Step 3. Open your washer’s door, then use a pair of needle-nosed pliers to take out the wire around the door boot seal (make sure you do not accidentally puncture it).
Step 4. Peel the door boot seal off the front of your machine. Slide the detergent tray out of the housing, then press the button inside to completely release it from the dispenser assembly.
Step 5. With a Philips screwdriver, take out the nuts holding the top cover to the cabinet. Slide the top panel backwards about an inch or so, then lift it off the machine.
Step 6. Get someone to help you tilt the machine backwards, then place a support under the front panel.
Step 7. Remove the four screws at the bottom of the front panel using your Philips screwdriver. Remove the support from underneath the washing machine.
Step 8. Use your screwdriver to take out the four screws at the top of the control panel. Loosen the two screws beside the dispenser opening.
Step 9. Pull the front panel upwards carefully, then lift it off the cabinet. Disconnect the two wire harnesses attached to the front panel, then set the panel aside.
Step 10. Pry the plastic cap off the drain pump assembly (use a flat-blade screwdriver if needed). inspect the electrical connectors attached to the pump and ensure that they are firmly plugged in.
Step 11. Once you’ve properly plugged the wire connectors in, reconnect the two wire harnesses to the front panel. Lift the front panel and snap it onto the cabinet.
Step 12. Secure the front panel to the cabinet by applying the screws at the top of the panel using your Philips screwdriver.
Step 13. Carefully tip the washing machine backwards, then place the block underneath to support it.
Step 14. Use your Philips screwdriver to apply the four screws at the bottom of the front panel. Remove the support from underneath your machine, then set the washer on its feet.
Step 15. Open your washing machine’s door and fit the gasket around the front panel. Using either a flat-blade screwdriver or a pair of needle-nosed pliers, carefully fit the wire around the door gasket.
Step 16. Use your Philips screwdriver to apply the two nuts next to the detergent dispenser. Slide the soap tray back into the housing.
Step 17. Remount the top panel on the cabinet, then secure it by applying the screws at the back using your Philips screwdriver.
Step 18. Plug the washing machine back into the electrical outlet, then try running a wash cycle to see if the pump works.
If your washing machine’s drain pump still doesn’t work, you’ll need to replace the entire pump assembly. To learn how to do this, read this article.
