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.

Maytag Epic Z Washer F-20, Water Inlet replaced, still F-20 Error


Chris an F-20 is usually a clogged filter on duet washers. Did you go by the tech sheet in your machine? It gives the codes and remedys and is in a jacket behind the kickplate which you remove to get to the filter. You will need a quarter inch nutdriver to gain access.
SERVICE MANUAL is HERE on my manual page

I have a model WFE1070BD*CD,(5 months old) does this machine use cold water ? Both hot and cold taps were connected at installation but on delicate wash clothes are still very hot .


Check the hose connections on the back.My guess is the lines are crossed. Double check: Is the cold water supply piped to the cold inlet on the washer and the hot water piped to hot inlet? They may be reversed either on the hoses or in the wall.
To check the in-wall piping, feel the the hose bibb marked cold...well, is it? cold I mean. If it is hot, the pipes are crossed in the wall. If it's cold, check that the hose is running to the inlet marked C or cold, or is blue. If it isn't your inlets are crossed. Either way, switch the hoses and you should be good.

Hot water connected but does not fill into the drum? The machine will provide us with a cold wash but on the warm and hot settings the hot water dies not pull through the connection


Turn off the water valves which supply the water to washer hoses. Switch the hot and cold water supply hoses and tighten. Turn the water valves back on and try to run a wash cycle using cold. If hot water only is entering the wash tub the water supply is ok. If this is the case you can unplug the washer and turn off the water valves. Remove the washer back cover and follow the water connection for the hot water. The water solenoid valve will have two electrical wires connected to it. Interchange the hot water solenoid wires with the cold water solenoid connection. Connect the water supply hoses hot to hot and cold to cold then plug the unit then test the washer on the cold wash. If the problem persists it could be a water hose restriction or the timer circuit could be defective. If you have hot water at the normal pressure purchase a new hot water solenoid valve. With the electrical cord unplugged be sure to restore the correct wire connections on the hot and cold water solenoid. To replace the hot water solenoid remove the hose clamp and hose to replace the old valve. Connect the unit to the water and electrical outlet. Turn on the water and test the unit for leaks being careful not to touch any electrical and moving parts. If all checks ok and the correct temperature work, unplug the unit and reassemble.

Water will not heat up why


Check your water supply line (wall) at the hot and cold hose connections to ensure that the hot and cold hoses are installed correctly. Your washer's water temperature is only as good as the temperature entering the appliance. Is water temperature o.k. elsewhere in your home? If not, your water heater may need to be checked for proper operation.

Only hot water in washer on all settings


Are the hoses connected to the correct inlet valve on the machine?

If so, then the inlet valve itself may be faulty.

Have model 88675 with slow hot water fill


I once had this problem. The solution was to remove the hot water hose connection to the washer and look at the filter/screen inserted into the end of the hose connection on the washer machine. This screen protects the washer components from foreign particles entering. You may find a badly-clogged screen, so clean it. I have seen a cold water screen clean, while the hot water screen was clogged...something to do with hot water and minerals or iron in water.
