This unit was new in May of 06.

Today for the first time it gave me an error code efo or ef0, not really sure. Anyway, from what I could find here in the dojo, it seems to be soap related. Well, I have only ever used HE soap, and never the full amount. So I am fishing around for other ideas.

Anyone have some?

I called the store where the item was purchased, and they are trying to research the code, to no avail yet.

does the machine still operate? and if so does it still fully spin the water out of the clothes as it normally would or do the clothes seem a little more wet than normal?

Well, it seemed to be operating normally, but I am not sure.

Since I last wrote, I poked around on some other sites. I found one place that said that someone thought it was due to a plugged up drain hose. I didn't check the end that is in the machine, but at the end of the hose that drains into my laundry tub, I have a wire lint catcher. It was pretty full, so I changed that.

After that load, I unplugged the machine for about five minutes, plugged it back in, and started back with the laundry. No error codes that I have seen. The message had occurred when I was doing a load on the 'bulky' setting (blankets and the like). Now I am using the normal cycle, nothing.



Wait ... just had a call from the place that I bought it. They said it's b/c of no hot water or a misconnected hose)

My best guess is that our basement gets so cold, when it filled up with 'hot water', wasn't even luke warm water.

hot water will play a factor as well as the lint screen that you had on the drain hose. You should really ditch the lint screen, is not necessary and will continue to cause problems.

thanks for the advice.

Mind if I ask for clarification about the lint screen?

You said that I don't really need it. When I didn't have one on my old washer, the lint used to collect the the + in the drain hole, and would slow the water down unbelievably, and then it would break off when I tried to get it out, and cause a total clog in my drain. It was really hard to get it out.

it's ok to use the screen if you are going to clean it on a frequent basis, it can cause the same result as a clogged drain (water slow to leave the machine). Your drain pipe should be able to handle any lint that is washed out from the machine in a normal situation, however if your drain can't handle it keep the screen and just clean it frequently.
