    I had the EFO coming on several times during a load of wash today  I suspected the soap because there were more suds, but not overflowing with them.  I was trying to use up some regular soap.  I called the Company and they advised that the code comes on when too much soap is used.

It cud b coz of a plugged up drain hose..check that...&
After that..unplug the machine for 5mins and plug it back again..if the message occurs when u r doing a load on the 'bulky' setting (blankets and the like). use t normal settings.
Another important aspect that u must observe is that it cud b becoz of unavailability of hot water..plz check that too

My Frigidaire Washing machine keeps flashing EFO in the ddisplay glass; What does that indicate?


EFO or EF0, indicates a problem with the detergent - either you're using too much, or you're not using HE detergent, which is meant for most front loaders.

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.

Affinity ATF7000E Front Load Washer: where do i find what efo means on my affinity wash...


Frigidaire, Zanussi, AEG, & More....

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.

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

My front loader washer displays the letters "EFO", what does it mean


It can mean one of two things. You did not use an HE ( High energy detergent) or you used to much so there are too many suds in the washer. It can also mean that if you are using warm water, the hot water is not coming in, so you would need to make sure the hoses are connected correctly, the hot water is turned all the way on and that the little filter at the end of the hose (washer end) is clean.
Thanks

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.

Front loading washer


I don't see either of those error codes in the frigidaire technical data for this model. You can look here:

I've heard EFO has to do with oversudsing so if you're using HE soap use less, if you're not you should switch.
