We have a frigidaire front loader that just keeps running the water. With the helpful advice from the forum I cleaned out the two handfuls of coins from the drain boot and examined the pump. That was fixed, but the forum also suggested the fill sensor switch. I did not find that to be disconnected and it sounded like it worked when I blew pressure into it. Does it take less pressure than I can blow? Could it be another sensor?

Re: The water just keeps running
When you blow into the tube, there should not any block, the air should pass through; then you know that the tube is okay. This should solve things.......
Also note that the outlet tube is not connected to the drain at floor level; it should be at least the machine height; the machine pumps the water OVER this height. Or the water will just drain out......

Leave the door open to allow the tub area to dry after use (both top and front loaders). Front loaders also have a propensity to hold a small amount of water in the rubber door seal. Wiping this up after each use will also help prevent the growth of mould.
E10 means that your cold water is coming in too slow, disconnect the cold water hose and check to see if the screen on your washing machine is clogged. If the screen is clean and the hose has good pressure then you will need to replace the water valve on your machine--- this is the piece that the hoses directly connect to.

Hope your filter is clean. Don’t wait for the
machine to jam to
look into your filter.
You can use Affresh to clean your front loader. Deposits of soap and
things can be stuck around the inside tub of your washer. Try this
works great on all front loaders. Use very hot water with the Affresh
with no clothes and run the machine through a cycle. Also helps with any
stagnant water smells. Put the Affresh
pellet inside the machine, not in the soap dispenser.

My daughter's front loader did the same thing, and she cleaned it with a bleach and water solution, then rinsed with water. we were told that you have to keep the door open to keep it from molding and mildewing.
First of start by checking the rubber gasket seals around the door and making sure those are good and clean and dry. Then inspect the barrel itself. My daughter loves to leave scraps of paper in her pockets that then get stuck in my front loader. Clear any debris from the barrel. Does your machine have a small front access panel or back access to get to the filter? Most front loaders have some sort of filter on them apart from the barrel. If you can find this part, it is a common culprit. Mine is a tube shaped basket with a front access panel on this one. On the front loader before this one is was back panel accessable under the drum. when you check these have a bucket and some thing mop up with handy, towels, mop, etc. One other thing to consider is the drain hose from the machine. I have flushed mine using a garden hose in the yard and used a little bleach.
Please go to this website ftp://ftp.electrolux-na.com/ProdInfo_PDF/Webster/134609000een.pdf and look at the sectiopn pertaining to cleaning the dispenser drawer. In all probability, the dispenser is stuck and needs to be cleaned.
I hope that solved your dispenser issue.. As for the foul smell of the washer.. Front loaders are plagued with this problem and there is no known solution however there are a few things you can do to minimize and/or prevent that foul smell for a period of time.. After the last wash load, wipe down the door gasket thoroughly, If you do not have any small childern in the house.. leave the door open to allow the inside of the washer to air dry.. You can use a product sold at Home Depot ( and other places) called AFRESH and that will help for a while.. otherwise.. Front Loaders must maintain a leaktight sela to keep water from leaking but in so doing... it is also airtight.. herein lies the problem.. any standing water left over after a washer wil get stagnant and develop mold over time.. Hope this helped...
not really front loaders have top loaders beat all the way but stay away from admiral and maytag .a front loader will wash your clothes using the soap that your top load failed to get out if i may suggest buy a frigidaire with a mechanical timer not electronic control more junk on them more to fail the best combo in my mind is a frigidaire front loader and whirlpool dryer front loaders use 2/3 less water 2/3 less soap and will get your clothes twice as clean they have no transmissions and are direct drive the most common promblems with them is having to clean out the pumps where people leave stuff in their pockets also you need to buy soap thats for front loaders its called high effincey or he soap and they will get your clothes make sure you read the installation guide and remove ALL the shipping braces
First thing is to run the machine as normal. After the cycle is complete and the clothes are removed, turn the water off, hot and cold, to the machine. If on the next usage there is no water in the tub then the fault has been found. And, no, the water valves are fairly easy to access and replace if needed.
try turning the water supply down and recheck the form of water spray from above the soap tray(with it out and a towel there).
if the jets of water are spraying everywhere it means there are semi blocked holes. either clean them out thorougly or drop the water pressure down to a fast trickle. tone.
