Remove the line to the water level sensor, release the vacuum and it might solve. Also check inlet and drain blocks.

If the water flows though the inlet then the flow pressure should be good, if not the inlet valve is bad or there is dirt in the filter. Also check the flow at the inlet of the water line. Once the water comes into the system the WATER LEVEL SENSOR - normally a pressure switch- must activate at the preset/chosen level to give the signal to the program controller to switch on the motor. What is most important for the motor to start functioning is that the door switch must be ON when the door is shut or this will be an error for starting the motor for rinse and wash.

What does EFO mean


Its an anti flood warning. generally it means something has leaked into the cabinet and water has triggered the safety float on the floor of the cabinet. You will probably find a small leak somewhere which has allowed water to gather under the machine. IE/ Hose, front gasket, pump etc.. If you tip the machine backwards to drain all the water out of the base, it will probably work until the safety switch triggers again. Locate and fix the leak before it gets worse and causes some damage.

How to deactivate EFO on Lavamat 76819?


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.

How do i re set an EFO code on an AEG LAVAMAT


you just need to mop up the water inside the cabinet to allow the float switch in the base to reset.check there is nothing stopping the float returning to the floor. a small leak from the door seal can cause enough of a leak to trip it . clean the door glass and seal to stop this. or change the door seal.

Aeg Lavamat 64840 programme stops at 1 minute to go. turning the machine off doesn't help and you can't open the door


The main PCB, before sending the door aperture signals, checks for the following conditions:
• The drum must be stationary (no signal from the tachymetric generator)
• The water level must not be higher than the lower edge of the door
• The temperature of the water must not be higher than 40º C.
Automatic release device
In the event of a power failure, or if the appliance is switched off using the ON/OFF switch, or if there is a
fault in the solenoid valve, the bi-metal PTC cools within a period of between 55 seconds and about 4
minutes (at a temperature of 65°C), thus releasing the door.

if after swiching off for longer than 5mins and the door lock does not unlock the lock must be faulty.
