Is there a way to reset an EFO error on an AEG Lavamat L 16850 without calling an engineer in?
Unplugging machine and plugging in again.
We need to retrieve the engineer code for this.
Press and hold the top 2 buttons on the left, together.
While holding them, turn the dial 1 click clockwise.
The lights will flash, release the buttons.
The lights will scroll.
Turn the dial clockwise to the 2nd last position before off.
You'll see another code, let me know the code.
Now, turn to off, to any program and back to off.
This doesn't seem to be working for us, should the machine be on a certain program before we start?What do you mean with lights will scroll?Thanks
No, it should be at the off position.
I mean, the lights will scroll, they'll light up in sequence.
What are the top 2 buttons on the left marked?
There are over 20 machines with the model number so there may be different facias.
The buttons are "SPIN" and "AUTODRY"HI 056324 is the typenumber
OK, thanks for that.
Can you post the product number (PNC) of your appliance?
It will be on the label in the door recess, it begins with 9.
Prefix it with A so it's not crossed out when posted.
eg. A914419941 00
Thanks for that.
Totally different machine from the one I picked.
Switch the machine on, any program except the 1st one clockwise.
Close the door.
Press and hold the start button and the button to the left of it, together.
It says EF3
The machine is reporting water has leaked into the base activating the anti flood device.
Unplug the appliance.
Pull it out and take the rear panel off.
Remove the water in the base.
Once removed the anti flood device will reset.
Try the machine again.
Check to see if it's leaking.
If it is, you'll need to locate and cure the leak to rectify the problem.
If not leaking, it may have been a spillage, possibly when the filter was cleaned out.
Check it out, see what you find and get back to me if you need more help.
Hope this helps
