Errors or Error Codes for Electrolux Dryer

When your Electrolux dryer starts acting up, the first thing you should do is check if it’s displaying any error codes on its screen. These codes are a way for your appliance to communicate exactly what’s going wrong with its system, allowing you to identify and, in many cases, solve the problem without needing to call a technician.

But what does each code mean? Below, we present a complete table with the most common error codes for Electrolux dryers, their description, cause, and most importantly, the recommended solution for each one. Before proceeding, it’s important to mention some concepts that might be a bit technical but are essential for better understanding the solutions:

  • Pressure switch: A sensor that measures the water level in the washer. If this component fails, it can cause problems with filling or draining water.
  • Solenoid valve: Controls the flow of water into the washer. A failure here can prevent the machine from filling correctly.
  • Drain pump: Expels water from the washer. If it’s clogged or damaged, water won’t drain properly.
  • Electronic board: The “brain” of your washer, controlling all its functions. Problems here can cause a variety of errors.
  • Tachometer: Measures the motor’s speed. If it fails, it can affect the motor’s operation.
  • NTC probe: Temperature sensor. A failure can cause issues with water heating.

Now, here’s the table with the error codes:
