Brand new frigidaire washer flashes warning message EFO just after starting a wash cycle. After a few minutes this messages turns to E10 and it beeps until the cycle is cancelled. called customer support and they thought it was oversudsing so i tried to put a load through with no detergent to see what would happen. same thing. what do these codes mean? any help would be great.
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.
Could mean two things not getting enough water or the drain hose is too low I had the same problem and my drain hos was down to low if you have it on pedalestals like mine is you drain hose needs to be two inches high than the wash machine

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.
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.
