Our washer lights on control board will flash and it beeps when not in use. It will do this for hours but then stops, then all out of the blue it starts doing it again.
This issue sounds like there is a fault in the control board of the unit which is making the unit flash and beep. You should access the tech sheet and see if there are any stored error codes which would help with determining if the issue is the board or something else.
Our control board has been flakey for awhile. It will randomly start blinking lights and making noises. Still works, but getting toucher lately was stuck on 8hr delay for a bit today. Opened the washer and found this on the label on the control board cover. Electrolux Home Products - 134667500 (also WFHG8000-0730-0116C) Is this compatible with the AP4354654? They look the same, just want to make sure before I buy.
Answer Hello Mike,
This sounds like you may have buttons sticking. If there have been any spills on the unit such as liquid detergent or fabric softener, this can cause the issue as well as damage from the unit being transported or moved improperly. You will need to examine the unit for the possible cause by looking for cracks or any sticky substance around the buttons. If you find a substance, you can normally disassemble and clean the area with rubbing alcohol and reassemble to correct the issue. If any cracks or damage is located around the buttons, the damaged part will require replacement. If nothing is obvious, you could have a support screw missing from the board or panel. This would have to be corrected to hold the panel and control in the correct position to prevent the issue. If the control requires replacement, you will have to use the 137005000.
My washinging machine is having a couple issues. When the wash cycle finishes, the clothes are still soaking wet. I change the cycle to the drian/spin which would normally drian the water and do another complete spin cycle to get the water out. The machine starts up normally and begins to drian the water, but then it just sits ther for a while and does nothing. After about 15 minutes or so, the drum will turn, very slowly, in one direction, stop, then do the same in the opposite direction. It does this about 4-6 times, then the cycle signal goes off as if it were done, but the clothes are still soaking wet because it never spun the way it would normally. In addition to that, every so often, no matter which actual wash cycle you choose, it will run through and signal that it's done. I will go out a short time later and when I open the door a bunch of water comes pouring out. Also there are times when the machine is empty and has had nothing in it for a day or so, and when I open it to put clothes in, it will be full of water, which then comes pouring out on to the floor. I changed the main control board out, and tried to run the drain/spin cycle to get all the wet towles I had in there rung out so that I can dry them, but it continues to do the same thing. I have only had the board switched out for a day, so I don't know if putting a new board in has helped the water issuse because that only happens every now and again. I would say the water issue happens about every 15 loads or so. Thank you for any help you can provide.
Answer Josh, Based on your post information, you'll need to check a few things. Replace the water inlet valve 134371220. There shouldn't be any water in the tub, when the machine is in the off position. Check the water level pressure switch and hose 134528801 disconnect the hose from the switch and blow in the end of the hose, this should clear any debris or residue from the hose. If the pressure switch doesn't reset to the "empty" position, the washer will not spin. Also check that the door is locked, and remains locked the whole cycle, and the washer drains the water in approximately 60 seconds or less.
