EFO is not a Kenmore Error Code.

Zanussi & AEG 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.

While washing the letters EFO flash. what does this mean?


Hi,


If your washer displays EFO it means that you are not using HE detergent. You must have used too much detergent on a particular load.You have to use He detergents to fix this issue or else not using it will ruin your washer because regular soap makes too much suds.


Thank you!

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

Beep with a display saying EFO


Dear novscorp,
According to the error code chart (a loose insert included with the operating instructions) EF0 means two things: Error 1. Over sudsing  or  Error 2. Hot water does not enter.
For over sudsing, it lists the possible causes as: a high efficiency detergent was not used (the detergent brand will have "he" on it for high efficiency) or too much detergent was added.  The solution lists: Use only a high efficiency detergent.  Follow manufacturer's recommendation for dosage.  Amount may need to be adjusted for water temperature, water hardness, load size and soil level.  
For the 2nd error, hot water does not enter, it lists the possible causes as hot water hose is connected to the wrong faucet or hot water faucet is not turned on.  The solution lists: Connect hot water hose to hot water faucet and hot inlet on washer.  Be sure hot water facet is fully opened.
On a personal note, I received the same error when I mixed my detergent directly in with my color safe bleach.  It just caused a lot of suds in the machine.  One rinse cycle solved it.
Hope this helps, Ellenk4

Flashing EFO error code


spoke with electrolux and they tell me that it is over sudsing problem. The washer must use HE detergent or use only a the lowest amount on the cup.

Flashing EFO error code


I've read in a product review that Frigidaire put out a service bulletin regarding the electronic timer circuit board in these machines. Apparently enough of these boards failed to prompt a factory response. With this in mind, you should call an appliance repair center and ask them if they're aware of this Factory Service Bulletin. In many cases like this, where a part is manufactured defective, the repair could be free to you.

Error messages EFO and E10


It is simple. The wrong soap or too much soap will caused EFO to flash. I overfilled the machine with soap by accident. It started flashing with EFO and I went nuts. What could be wrong with it now?! Too much soap or not the right kind of soap will cause this problem.
Plus, I found a sheet of paper that gives the codes.

This is better than when the strainer plug gets filled up and you have to take the machine apart to clean the little strainer.
