Question about Frigidaire ATF6000ES Front Load Washer
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.

SOURCE: flashing EFO error code
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.

SOURCE: beep with a display saying EFO
According to the error code chart (a loose insert included with the operating instructions) EF0 means two things: Error 1. Over sudsing or Error 2. Hot water does not enter.
For over sudsing, it lists the possible causes as: a high efficiency detergent was not used (the detergent brand will have "he" on it for high efficiency) or too much detergent was added. The solution lists: 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.
For the 2nd error, hot water does not enter, it lists the possible causes as hot water hose is connected to the wrong faucet or hot water faucet is not turned on. The solution lists: Connect hot water hose to hot water faucet and hot inlet on washer. Be sure hot water facet is fully opened.
On a personal note, I received the same error when I mixed my detergent directly in with my color safe bleach. It just caused a lot of suds in the machine. One rinse cycle solved it.
Hope this helps, Ellenk4

The error codes are not shown in the owner's manual. They would be in the technical information for the washer. They are intended for service technicians. The chart of the error codes is shown below. The EF0 is a group code that indicates that one of the faults associated with error codes beginning with "EF" occurred. This group includes EF1, EF2 and EF5 as shown in the chart below. To determine the exact code of the failure, you can use the procedure in the second image to recall the specific code.
If the washer had excessive suds, you can likely drain it after the suds dissipate. Make sure that you are using HE (High Efficiency) detergent in appropriate quantities in the washer.
If the EF5 error occurred, you could have the hot and cold water lines switched on the back of the washer. You could also have a problem with the temperature sensor.
If the EF1 occurred, you likely have a drain problem. Check the drain line for kinks or clogs. To access the drain pump in the washer, you would need to unplug the washer and remove the bottom front service panel. If you access this area, you can check the pump. Be careful. If the washer tub is still full of water, it will drain out through the pump if your pull off any of the hoses to the pump. You can evacuate most of the water from the tub by using a wet/dry shop vacuum. A clog in the pump could be causing a drain problem.

EFO is not a Kenmore Error Code.
Zanussi & AEG 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.
