We got the same error. After searching countless forums, we found the solution! There were socks/underwear/change built up in the pump. The water was not cycling through properly. It didn't even get passed the wash cycle. Cleaned it out and everything works fine. Plus, the error code list is INSIDE the washer! Go figure.

    i have had my washer for 2 years and its been nothing but problems. to anyone searching for a new washer do not buy a Frigidaire front loader they are not worth the money and will cost u even more to maintain. i also had the efo code issue and it was due to needing to replace the pump with a cost of over 125.00 and im just going to buy a new washer.

SOURCE: Affinity ATF7000E Front Load Washer: where do i find what efo means on my affinity wash...

Frigidaire, Zanussi, AEG, & More....

EFO = Filter Blocked (low flow) and it is accessible from the bottom front of the machine.

1. there is a blockage in the filter or drain hose.takes too long to drain out.
2. over dosing of powder or liquid. again can cause an air lock in the pump which slows the drain pump down.

Check the filter and drain hose and test again. this fault will only come up at the end of a cycle.
You do not need to reset the machine to get rid of the fault code as this is automatically deleted.

Run an empty load with no detergent in an attempt to get rid of the code.

Affinity washer flashing EFO


Good Morning Friend,

I understand that your Frigidaire Affinity washer, model# ATF7000E, is flashing an EFO code. I do not show an EFO code for your appliance.

I do show an EF1 code, which means the drain pump is clogged. In this instance you would unclog the drain pump.

I also show an EF2 code, which means too much soap was used. All you would do for this would be to try using less soap.

It could also be a false error code. I suggest resetting your washer, by either unplugging it or shutting the power off at your homes circuit breaker, for 3-5 minutes. When you restore power, start any cycle on your washer. I ask that you please follow up with a comment on the post, at your convenience, to advise if further troubleshooting is needed or if your washer status has changed successfully. Hope this is helpful.

-Best Regards-

I am getting a EFO then E10 error message after I start a load of clothes...which means I have to cancel the load.


E10/EFO error code is an indication of a slow fill, took to long to fill, no fill or the fill water could be siphoning out the drain hose as it's filling with water.

Check to make sure that the drain hose is not stuck too far down the stand pipe and causing the water to siphon out. Check the cold and hot water supply to the washer for any restrictions. If you have a slow fill remove the hoses from the washer and check for restricted filter screens in the water inlet valve. Check for any restricted hose screens too.

I have a front loading washer and it was flashing an error code "EFO' What does that mean?


I just spoke with customer support for my Affinity. They told me it was over sudsing (sp?). from using too much soap or not using high efficiency soap. Suggested running thru a cycle without soap to clear things out.
