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.

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.

EFO code cameup.


Its not EFO its EF0 .Theremust be some thing blocking the pump .For example socks,underwear etc. The water was not cycling through properly. Cleaned it out and everything works fine.Use proper detergent mentioned for your model because even SUD formation can cause this error.

Efo


Hello,the EFO code is a general error that is caused because of 2 things:

1.Use of too much soap can be one of the cause of the error. to clear it run the machine through a quick cycle or normal cycle but without using the soap which will drain out the excess soap.

2. The other reason could be that the drain pipe is clogged , to clear it you can remove the back cover of the pump an remove the hose. Inspect them and clean them if nay obstruction.

Thanks

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!

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.

Greetings tammym545,

Generally an EFO error on a front load machine is caused by using too much soap, or the wrong type of soap. Ensure you are using HE (High Efficiency) soap in your front loader. HE soaps are specially formulated front loading units to be low sudsing, which is essential to a front loader.

Thank you,

Agent Dort
Go Ahead. Use Us.
