Customer Question
I have a 6...

I have a 6 month old electrolux EFLW417SIW and it won't drain. Temp is 0 degrees. I thought I had thawed the drain pipe outside the machine. It ran part way through the 20 minute cycle, but stopped at 14 minutes to go so I tried the rinse spin cycle. It made some strange sounds.Now it is full of water and the door won't unlock

Contractor's Assistant: Can you guesstimate how old your Electrolux is? And just to clarify, what's the exact model?

I bought it new on June 23 2017

Contractor's Assistant: Do you plan on doing the work yourself?

Yes

Contractor's Assistant: Anything else we should know to help you best?

Well, if I can open the machine and bale it out that would help

T​he only way to remove the water is to remove the rear panel and disconnect the drain hose to let the water run out. The water level needs to be below a certain level (set at the factory) before the door can be opened. Once open you can remove the remaining water if necessary. If the washer has ice in the drain/pump area that will need to be removed/thawed before attempting to run the machine, otherwise damage may occur.

Here is a caution note from the manual, and a link to the manual for reference.

If the cycle is interrupted during spin, the door lock will not release until the tub has stopped spinning.

If the water level of the nonspinning drum is above the bottom of the door opening/fl exible door gasket, the lock will not release. DO NOT force open the door.

Y​ou might also try tipping the machine backwards and see if the door will open, if not then you will need to drain the water by removing the hose from the pump.
