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.

Check drain hose under the tub by unscrewing clamps to see if there is any blockage in this pipe; also clean out filter in this area. Disconnect from mains before doing so.

Its possible, the water valve will be energised to allow water to come in. The only way to confirm is to pull the fridge out and see if the noise is coming from where the water hose would normally be connected.

Unplug it for 5 minutes. If that doesn't work, you may need to empty it of water by lowering the drain hose into a pail lower that the door.

Hello Deena,
Error Code e21
means the water is not pumping out fast enough.The most likely reason is because the washer drain filter is clogged.
Here is a solution:
  1. Pull the machine out from the wall.
  2. Then take the panel out in the rear. Once the panel is off you will see the drain pump.
  3. Disconnect the drain Tube between the Tub and the Pump.
  4. Look inside the pipe you will find the Drain Filter.
  5. Clean the filter out ( you will be surprised of "things" found in the filter) then put the machine back together
  6. Try a full cycle.
That should end your problem.
Best of Luck!

Try going to another setting on the dial like heavy or delicate and spin the dial from start and click to almost the end of wash cycle and start. the pump should start draining. If not your may have to go a few clicks less or more just spin around again. If it does not pump out then it could be a clogged drain line or bad pump
