When the E40 error appears on the display of the Electrolux electronic washing machine, this is accompanied by the failure of the unit to start the program. Usually, such code knocks out immediately after pressing the start button, when all operating parameters have already been set. In response, nothing happens, it knocks out a breakdown code.
Error E40 means that there are difficulties with blocking the hatch. The device recognizes that the door is not closed, therefore it gives an error.
Before the arrival of the mechanic, you can try to solve the problem on your own. It is likely that the door is indeed not closed tightly enough. You just need to open it and slam it shut again harder.
Also, the error may be the result of a temporary software failure. It is fixed by rebooting the device. The washing machine is disconnected from the mains, it stays like this for 10-15 minutes, and then it starts up again.
If error E40 does not disappear after a reboot, then this indicates the following malfunctions:
|What a breakdown||Causes||How to eliminate|
|Washing does not start; an error is lit.||The sunroof blocking device burned out.||Installation of a new UBL.|
|The control board has failed.||Soldering of damaged parts or complete replacement of the board.|
|Damage to contacts / wiring.||Restoration or replacement of contacts / wiring.|
