Greetings tammym545,

Generally an EFO error on a front load machine is caused by using too much soap, or the wrong type of soap. Ensure you are using HE (High Efficiency) soap in your front loader. HE soaps are specially formulated front loading units to be low sudsing, which is essential to a front loader.

Thank you,

My Frigidaire Washing machine keeps flashing EFO in the ddisplay glass; What does that indicate?

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.

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.

Clothes smell mildewy after washing and drying

This is a common problem with front load washers. Mildew tends to grow in these washers due to it use of less water than top loaders, often leaves dirt and soap residue on the machine. To help prevent mildew, wipe the door gasket, leave door and detergent dispenser open after wash. Wash once a month empty, with hot water and vinegar to kill the mildew in the machine.

EFO displayed on my machine while running and beeped.

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.

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.

Front loading washing machines

not really front loaders have top loaders beat all the way but stay away from admiral and maytag .a front loader will wash your clothes using the soap that your top load failed to get out if i may suggest buy a frigidaire with a mechanical timer not electronic control more junk on them more to fail the best combo in my mind is a frigidaire front loader and whirlpool dryer front loaders use 2/3 less water 2/3 less soap and will get your clothes twice as clean they have no transmissions and are direct drive the most common promblems with them is having to clean out the pumps where people leave stuff in their pockets also you need to buy soap thats for front loaders its called high effincey or he soap and they will get your clothes make sure you read the installation guide and remove ALL the shipping braces
