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.

It can mean one of two things. You did not use an HE ( High energy detergent) or you used to much so there are too many suds in the washer. It can also mean that if you are using warm water, the hot water is not coming in, so you would need to make sure the hoses are connected correctly, the hot water is turned all the way on and that the little filter at the end of the hose (washer end) is clean.

It means one of two things. You either did not use an HE detergent or you used too much, so that there are too many suds in the washer. It can also mean that if you are using warm water, the hot water is not getting in. The hoses need to be checked to make sure they are hooked up on the right faucets and the hot water faucet should be turned all the way on. You would also need to unscrew the water hose at the washer end and make sure the little filter is clean, so tha the hot water can get through.

Good Luck!

Affinity washer flashing EFO


Good Morning Friend,

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.

-Best Regards-

Efo code what does it mean


Hi,

The EFO code is a general error thatIs caused because of 2 things:

1.Use of too much soap can be one of the cause of the error. to clear it run the machine through a quick cycle or normal cycle but without using the soap which will drain out the excess soap.

2. The other reason could be that the drain pipe is clogged , to clear it you can remove the back cover of the pump an dremove the hose. Inspect them and clean them if nay obstruction.

Please accept the solution if the information provided has been helpful.

I don't see either of those error codes in the frigidaire technical data for this model. You can look here:

http://www.frigidaire.com/support/ResultsPage.asp?strModel=atf6000es&User=&Search=Search

I've heard EFO has to do with oversudsing so if you're using HE soap use less, if you're not you should switch.

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.
