The electronic module of the washing machine is also called its “brains”. After all, this is the main element of the washing machine, which is necessary to control its most important elements: motor, timer, pump, and valve. Thanks to the electronic module, the water temperature, and drum speed are regulated, and the cycle time of the device is set.

Some models of modules have several additional buttons that perform functions such as heavily soiled, light ironing, and others. The module can easily break, which is why the entire washing machine system will not work. The reason for its breakdown can be high humidity in the house or frequent power surges. When the module becomes defective, some error appears on the display of the machine or the program selected by the user does not start. As a rule, control boards do not break completely, and they can still be returned to work. For example, an adapter may burn out or some other small element that can be easily replaced.

The module can be repaired only if it does not show serious damage, otherwise, it only needs to be replaced. Do not forget that in order to configure the control module, you also need to have good knowledge in the field of electronics and have at least a little experience with debugging such equipment. In addition, you will also need special devices for measuring. Depending on the manufacturer of the washing machines, the boards can differ significantly from each other. For example, the modules of Electrolux washing machines have fundamental differences. If you are at least a little versed in electronics, you can try to consider the schematic diagram of the module for your model of the machine and try to replace it. Most often, fuses burn out in it, and ROMs, capacitors, triacs, or transistors fail.

Any user can make a visual inspection of the mechanism, but only a competent specialist can carry out a thorough diagnosis of the spare part. Diagnostics of the module should be carried out on a special stand, which duplicates the work of specific units of the machine. With the help of such a stand, it is very easy to find out at what stage the module does not work.
