Hello Lahoma, thank you for your post!
I understand that your Frigidaire washer fills with water, will not drain completely, and is flashing an "E10" error code. The error code stands for your washer fill time is too long. This could be an issue with your water valve, main control, or water pressure. You should check to make sure that your water flow is normal and that your water line is not restricted. This could cause an issue with the way water is distributed within your washer. The water pressure coming into your washer should be at 30 PSI. You can also clear out any false error codes by performing a reset on your washer. In order to reset your washer you need to disconnect power from it for roughly ten minutes. If this does not help resolve your issue I would recommend consulting with a professional technician for a proper diagnosis to be completed. I hope this information is helpful to some degree. -Matt

Thank you for contacting fixya.com.
error code means low water inflow. In this error washer is not filling when the
fill valve opens.
To clear the error please follow the bellow instructions:-
Press the "Stop" button twice with your finger. This cancels the cycle and stops the washer. Unplug the power cord from the wall outlet.Turn the water shut off valves clockwise to stop the water flow to the washer through the supply hoses. Pull the washer away from the wall enough that you can access the hose connections at the back of the washer.
a bucket under the area of the hose connections. Unscrew the hose connections
from the back of the washer. If necessary, use a pair of slip joint pliers to
help start the connections turning until you can turn them by hand. Set the
ends of the hoses inside the bucket.Inspect the screens on the inlet ports on
the back of the washer where the hoses connect. Sediment and other debris can
block these screens, causing fill problems. Clean the screen with an old
the hoses back onto the washer. Look for kinks in the hoses. Kinks cut off
water supply to the washer which causes the FH error code. Once you connect the
hoses, turn the water supply valves counter-clockwise to supply water to the
washer. Move the bucket away from the washer and push the washer back into its
working position.Plug the power cord back into the outlet and start the wash
cycle again. If the FH error code comes up again, call a service repairman. If
the hoses have no kinks and the inlet screens are clean, there is a problem
with either the pressure switch or the flow meter.
Please get back to us if you have further query else please accept the suggestion.

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.

The LF error means Long Fill.
When you start a cycle the water should come into the dispensers. If you have a good flow through the dispenser the valves will be okay.
I recommend checking the inlet water screens on the back of the washer. The inlet screens are located on the water valve. To access the screens you will turn the water off and remove the inlet hoses. The screens prevent debris from entering the valve and sometimes over time mineral deposits build up on the screens. This can block the water or slow the water fills down to a trickle. You can pull the screens out and clean them if necessary. Flush the inlets thoroughly with water when replacing the screens. If debris gets past the screens, it can cause the valves to stick open and an overflow of water can result.
While you have the fill hoses disconnected, place the ends of the hoses in a bucket and briefly turn on the faucets to check for proper water pressure and flow from both hoses.
A common reason for an L F (long fill) error on this washer is the drain hose being stuck to far down the drain standpipe.
If the drain hose is to far down the standpipe then a siphon can occur which causes the washer to fill and drain at the same time. This will cause a long fill error.
