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!

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.

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.

What does efo mean


Electrolux Washer Fault Code for EFO or EF0

Drain Filter is Clogged. Resolution => Click lint filter for soap buildup or other debris. Check drain hose.

Oversudsing - A high efficiency detergent was not used.
Too much detergent was added. Resolution => 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.

Hot water doesn't enter washer - Hot water hose is connected to the wrong faucet. Hot water faucet is not turned on. Resolution => Connect hot water hose to hot water faucet and hot inlet on

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

http://www.frigidaire.com/support/ResultsPage.asp?strModel=atf6000es&User=&Search=Search

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.
