SOURCE: beep with a display saying EFO

Dear novscorp,
According to the error code chart (a loose insert included with the operating instructions) EF0 means two things: Error 1. Over sudsing  or  Error 2. Hot water does not enter.
For over sudsing, it lists the possible causes as: a high efficiency detergent was not used (the detergent brand will have "he" on it for high efficiency) or too much detergent was added.  The solution lists: Use only a high efficiency detergent.  Follow manufacturer's recommendation for dosage.  Amount may need to be adjusted for water temperature, water hardness, load size and soil level.  
For the 2nd error, hot water does not enter, it lists the possible causes as hot water hose is connected to the wrong faucet or hot water faucet is not turned on.  The solution lists: Connect hot water hose to hot water faucet and hot inlet on washer.  Be sure hot water facet is fully opened.
On a personal note, I received the same error when I mixed my detergent directly in with my color safe bleach.  It just caused a lot of suds in the machine.  One rinse cycle solved it.
Hope this helps, Ellenk4

SOURCE: washer wont go through spin cycle

Bent pinched or clooged drain hose. Other cause may be the drain filter in the front of the machine. (The small door on the lower left of the machine) With a pan, remove the cap and drain water from the small tube. Then open the larger cap and clean out the lint. This should solve the problem.

there is probably something stuck in the filter. take the plastic cap off and clean it out. i had this problem and found a coin wedged in the filter part. once the coin was removed.......good as new!

SOURCE: Simpson Esprit 700 Top Loader washer will not pump the water out

You situation could be caused by various problems. The easiest would be to check that no hoses on the drain side are kinked or plugged. This includes the tub to pump hose or the pump itself. Sometimes socks and other items can get stuck in the tub hose. Sometimes objects left in pockets can seize or hinder the pump ejection. Its sounds like if the unit is spinning and water is not ejected the above solutions should be checked first.

Is their a EFO ERROR?


Hello dbmr2 - From my research for this manufacturer there isn't any EFO error code for a washer. However, if the unit is not spinning is it making a humming noise? If so, either the drainage hose/pump is clogged and needs to be cleaned. If not, the washer may possibly be experiencing an issue with the door lock assembly, faulty pump, timer or control board not communicating correctly. Contact a professional to move forward accurately to properly diagnose and repair the unit.

Efo


Hello,the EFO code is a general error that is 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 remove the hose. Inspect them and clean them if nay obstruction.

Thanks

Flashes efo on display halfway through cycle

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.
