Hello,
The code EFO shown to the user can either be related to a blockage in the filter or pump.Also check the outlet drain hose for kinks or blockages.Another one to check out is that there is not too much detergent in the drum as this causes overfoaming.

Hope this was helpful.

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.

Efo


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.

Thanks

EFO displayed on my machine while running and beeped.


EFO is not a Kenmore Error Code.

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.

Beep with a display saying EFO


Dear novscorp,
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

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.
