EFO or EF0, indicates a problem with the detergent - either you're using too much, or you're not using HE detergent, which is meant for most front loaders.

My washing machine is running but there is a code EFO flashing on and off. (And, I can't find my manual...) What does that mean?


hello,

what this mean is an indication that there is flow of water in the (wiring system) sensing error above the normal level
what you need to do to fix up this problem is to open up the system and then clean up all forms of water of dirt around the wire and the screen and always keep note of the water level to avoid this again

thank you and thanks for using fixya.

While washing the letters EFO flash. what does this mean?


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!

Flashes efo on display halfway through cycle


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.

Flashing EFO error code


I've read in a product review that Frigidaire put out a service bulletin regarding the electronic timer circuit board in these machines. Apparently enough of these boards failed to prompt a factory response. With this in mind, you should call an appliance repair center and ask them if they're aware of this Factory Service Bulletin. In many cases like this, where a part is manufactured defective, the repair could be free to you.

Error messages EFO and E10


It is simple. The wrong soap or too much soap will caused EFO to flash. I overfilled the machine with soap by accident. It started flashing with EFO and I went nuts. What could be wrong with it now?! Too much soap or not the right kind of soap will cause this problem.
Plus, I found a sheet of paper that gives the codes.

This is better than when the strainer plug gets filled up and you have to take the machine apart to clean the little strainer.
