What does "EFO" stand for? It keeps blinking on my washer


EF0

displays due to washer over-sudsing or due to washer not filling with

Hot

water.

Causes for washer over-sudsing

:

Not using High Efficiency (HE) detergent.

Too much detergent was added.

Using too much 2X or 3X HE detergent

Solutions for over-sudsing

:

Always use HE detergent in an HE washer. It is formulated to be a low-sudsing detergent and made especially for HE washers.

Be sure to use the correct amount of detergent. HE washers require only a small amount of detergent.

Note

: This amount may need to be adjusted for water hardness, load size, and soil level.

If using a 2X or 3X concentrated HE detergent, much less detergent is needed. If suds are seen, reduce the amount used.

If using a water softener, less detergent.

Solutions for Hot water not entering the machine are

:

Make sure both Hot to Cold water hoses are connected properly at the faucets and at the washer.

Fill hoses are usually color coded, blue for cold and red for hot.

Verify that the hot water inlet hose is connected to the hot water faucet.

Verify that the cold water inlet hose is connected to the cold water faucet.

Verify that the hot water inlet hose is connected to the back of the washer into the hot water inlet port.

The inlet port is usually labeled with (H) or (HOT).

Verify that the cold water inlet hose is connected to the back of the washer into the cold water inlet port. This inlet port is usually labeled with (C) or(COLD).
hope this was some help,all the best.

Tip

Dishwasher Water Temperatures


No matter what detergent you use, the "pills", powder, or gels, they are meant to activate PROPERLY, key word PROPERLY, at a minimum of 120 degrees Fahrenheit in a dishwasher. I recommend ALWAYS using the "high temp wash, boost, etc" on ANY cycle in order to keep the water HOT! Always run the hot water in the sink prior to starting the dishwasher! The unit is tied in to the hot water line under the kitchen sink and requires very little water to fill--by the time the hot water finally reaches the dishwasher, chances are it'll be running on cold or tepid water--the detergent won't dissolve or activate the way it's supposed to. Not only that, in between fills during the cycle, especially in winter, the water will cool down in the pipes too much. Normally, the water heating selection will maintain water temps in the 130-150 degree range! If someone has been sick in the house, turn on the SANI RINSE if your unit has it! This won't stop--but it'll help prevent cross contamination--people getting sick from the dishes--this setting normally kicks the water temp up to 190 degrees during the rinse cycle.

I have a scunci ss 1000 hand held steamer cleaner. Its been used and given to me from a friend. The steam comes out the trouble is the steam is not hot, just luke warm. how can I fix it myself.


Try descaling it with CLR. Add CLR and water, turn it on but not fully to produce steam, just get it hot. Leave it for an hour. Empty that out and out some more in. Get this up to steam for 10 minutes, switch off, leave it for an hour and empty it. Fill and rinse out twice. Fill with water and see if it is fixed.

Why does my hot water stink?


Usually it has to do with the water supply, if the source is a well, have the water tested. Your local Health Department can direct you to testing companies. I just had my well re-tested, a good series of tests will cost about $100.00.

I have a Kenmore washer model 110.98762792 and im having a problem with the cold water. When the water temperature switch is set to the cold/cold position the washer does not fill with cold water. W


Since U get warm water that tells you that the cold and hot water solenoids are both operating. Ergo the anomaly has to be with the device that controls temperature.

Im gonna change my coolant on my 2000 chevy silverado, how many gallons of 100% coolant do i put before i fill up with water?


Most systems usually take about 2 gallons to refill. That is 1 gallon of anti-freeze and one gallon of water. Since you have a truck it might take a little more. The anti-freeze and water are usually mixed together before they are put into the system especially if the engine has aluminum heads. You can also buy the coolant pre-mixed. If you do then you must buy two gallons.

My washer allows hot water to fill but can't get the cold water to fill washer . i check the screen and water supply are ok . someone told me it could be a cold water solinoled valve


That is the likely problem if all else was clean. The cold water solenoid cannot be replaced alone. The whole water inlet valve will need to be replaced. They are usually inexpensive and easy to replace. Here is a link that should help testing a water inlet valve

Hot water will not cut of


Hi, If the washer is unplugged, does the hot water shut off? If not, then you need to change the water inlet valve.
If I can help you further, please let me know.

Thanks

Water only fills the machine in certain parts of cycle


a 90* wash will fill mainly with hot water / a 40* wash will fill mainly with cold water, this is normal action, rinses fill up with cold water only

is this what you are describing, if so thats normal, especially if its doing the job correctly
