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.

Which is hot & cold inlet connection


If you want to connect up a washing machine that uses hot and cold water but you only have a cold water supply (such as in a basement or garage) you can use a Y Piece connector to connect the hot and cold fill hoses to a single cold water supply (external link to 4Washerhelp spares).
The washing machine will then work OK. Simply screw the Y-Piece onto the tap, and then screw the hot and cold fill hoses to the Y-piece and connect the other end of the fill hoses to the washing machine. (You may also be able to buy this part from a DIY store like B&Q)
If you don't connect a water supply to the hot valve (and simply connect the cold water hose to the cold valve leaving the hot valve with nothing connected to it) then some wash programs may not work as some programmes only fill with hot water. However, some washing machines will work OK with only the cold fill hose connected. You can always try it and see. The worse that will happen is the washer could either stick on the odd wash programme or may abort on some. If you do this though it's possible for water to drip out of the hot valve on some machines during fill. It's best to use a y-piece if possible.
The fact that you have connected cold water to the hot valve is irrelevant, the washing machine will not know any different and will just heat the water up to the correct temperature. The washing machine may use slightly more electricity but if it's less than 10 years old it shouldn't be significant unless you use a lot of 60 or 90 degree washes. On 40 degree washes, manufacturers argue it's more efficient to fill with cold water only and slowly heat up the water to 40 degrees.

Hi. I've just been loaned a Whirlpool awm 5125/4 washing machine (while mines gone for repair), but it has on the back of the machine, a hot inlet and a cold inlet. My machine only requires a cold water...


Hi,

Your machine can be connected for cold fill only but, you will need to connect a "Y-Piece" for it to work:
belectric_29.jpg
The tail of the "Y" attaches to the cold water valve on your pipework. You then attach both hot and cold water hoses to the branches of the "Y" and connect both hot and cold water hoses to your washing machine. The wash cycles will take longer when connected this way as the machine has to heat the water internally. It will also be less energy effecient.

Please post back if you need further assistance.

Regards,
BElectric

Im installing a Maytag 412 top loading washing machine. Im not sure if it is the top input for hot or cold? Could you please help. Thanks, Tim


Without the complete model number, I'll have to inform you like this.
If it's red it's the hot inlet. Blue is the cold. If not colored. Normally the case has and H and a C stamped into them next to the corresponding inlet.
If all else fails do this. Hook up the water lines to either one. Now with both water lines hooked up and both the cold and hot water turned on. Plug the machine in. Use the selector on the console and set it to cold wash. Turn on and let it have time to turn hot ifit's going to. Feel the water temp. If it's warm or hot, swap the lines. If not, you have them correct. If the water is warm or hot, swap the connections. Good luck!

The washer will not fill with cold water. When I try to wash with cold or warm...only hot water will fill the machine.


If it is a hot and cold fill washer, then you must ensure that there is water at the inlet valve, and the valve filter is not blocked.
If that is o/k, then the valve could be faulty.
Also ensure that you have the cold water connected to the cold valve if it is hot and cold fill.
Please rate my solutioin.
Thanks.

My washing machine has had a high-pitched noise when it fills with cold water ever since we moved to a new house. This doesn't happen when it is filling with hot (or even warm) water. We've tried turning...


Are you sure you have the hot pipe on the hot inlet and the cold on the cold inlet ie red to red black to black (easily done), please check carefully. if OK then I think you have picked up some dirt in the inlet filter and this will need to be removed and cleaned,remove lid and follow pipes inside to plastic tank at top near drawer, filter housing can be seen there.

Hot point aquarius 1100 - does this have a heating element for cold water feed ? or does is need direct hot water feed ? (there is a inlet at back for both hot and cold so presume no heating element ?)


All Hotpoint washers have heater element regardless of whether they are cold fill only, or hot and cold fill.
if 2 connections at rear, then it is hot and cold fill, if only 1 connection, then it is cold fill only.
Please rate my solution.
Thanks.

Hoover HW160m - double inlet but only 1 tap at new build.


Hello,

You can use the cold water only with no issues at all. The only thing you will have to do is buy a cap to block off the hot water inlet on the back of the machine otherwise the cold water will flow out through it onto your floor etc.

And yes, your machine has an element built in which will heat the water for you!

Regards,
Adrian.

Hello , I can help , if there is only 1 water inlet hookup it will be cold and some new machines heat the water on there own , if there are 2 water inlets it would be best to connect hot and cold to unit , if you do not have a hot water line available it should still be ok to put a Y adapter on your cold water line to both connections on your unit. Let me know how it goes. Phil
