ATF7000es E10 fault

Getting an E10 error which I am unable to locate in the manual. It seems to be associated with the door lock, if I apply pressure to the door while washing it goes through the whole wash cycle. We have already replaced the door latch and main brain about six months ago. Do I need to hire a lady with a big **** to lean on my machine or is there a better alternative??

    I am getting error code 10 also. Did this solution work for the other people with error code10??

    It seems to only run through the normal cycle and shows e10 on ALL other cycles. I HATE THIS WASHER. It is making a nice grinding noise as well when it starts to drain.

Hi - it sounds to me like the door latch needs adjusting or tightening up. It's probably something really simple like a loose screw. I must have plenty of those to be spending my time here :-)

I keep getting a error code E10 despite replacing numerous parts on my GE model GFWH2400L0WW front load washer.

this code came up after the door latch was replaced ? did the old part number and the new part number match as they switch over the switching in the switches on different models.also the locking device that locks the washer is the big round valve that has a pipe feeding from the bottom of the drum. its also the the water level sensor tells the washer were the washers water level is. this also has an amount of resistance that tells the door to lock. if its blocked it will either overfill washer or not allow the door to be unlocked. in turn you break the lock off. if you put a new lock on and not fix this part the door will not lock or start.

Hi Ryan C - From what you have described since you have already replaced the door lock assembly, you may possibly have a communication error with the control panel not responding.

Stirling XQG65-908E. We keep getting an E10 error and would like the instruction manual as we have misplaced it

Unfortunately, that particular model of washing machine has been completely discontinued and is no longer supported at all. Cheap imported brands / models like the Aldi Stirling machines are seldom provided with useful documentation even right from the factory in the first place, and so finding electronic copies of that documentation online afterwards is often an impossible task.

Furthermore, you would not likely find the information you are looking for in any standard Owner's Manual anyway.

ERROR CODE definitions and the associated corrective action procedures are normally only found in the Factory Service Documentation provided only to Factory Service Technicians and Authorized Repair Facilities. These special Service Instructions are normally closely protected documents not readily available to non-authorized personnel and ordinary customers.

I'm very sorry if this is not helpful to you, but what you are asking is more of an Appliance Service Call than a simple User's Manual request.

However, I will attempt to contact the previous distributor (Tempo Australia) to see if anyone there can still provide the instructions for clearing the E10 Error Code on that model, as well as a diagnosis of what possibly caused that fault condition in the first place.

Often times with these machines, the fault code is the result of a BLOCKED FILTER inside. You can usually find the filter located behind the lower right hand panel on the front of the machine, below the door.

Just turn off and unplug the power cable to the machine, then access the filter fitted in the location described above, and be sure to clean it out thoroughly. After waiting about an hour with the power disconnected, plug the unit back in and then test it out.

If the error code is still present after this procedure, then the fault is almost certainly something more significant and you will likely need the services of an on-site appliance technician. As always, I would recommend purchasing major appliances only from reputable and established name brand dealers who are able to provide reliable service and product support if ever required. They are certainly more expensive initially, but they are almost always more reliable and worth the money in the long run.

Please COMMENT back to this page if you have any questions or comments and I will respond back to you as soon as I see them.

As I said I will continue to search for the information you need and will post it here if I locate it.

Truly, my sincerest apologies for not being able to assist you more today.

Take care.

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.

Error code E10 what is it

When error code E10 appears just take the cold water off the inlet tube to the washing machine, then clean the screen using light force air then replace the hose .Finally turn the water back on.This should solve the problem. If not the door latch needs adjusting or tightening up. It's probably something really simple like a loose screw.

Thank you !!

I have a Fridgidaire Front Loader Washer _ Affinity. It has an error message flashing. E10. What does that mean? What do I do to fix it?

I have a Fridgidaire Front Loader Washer _ Affinity that flashed the E10 error code. I also had the problem with the fabric softener dispenser not emptying, and staying full of water. The problem was the cold water filter on the back of the washing machine that was semi-plugged. Cleaned the filter and now works perfectly. My machine is no longer flashing the Error code 10. The dispenser works perfectly.
