How do you reset the EFO error code in a washing machine

Customer Question

Customer: ***** *****, how do you reset the EFO error code in a ***** ***** washing machine
JA: Thanks. Can you give me any more details about your issue?
Customer: yes I think it was triggered by over soaping, all normal filters are clear. pump is running continuously and machine wont switch off even when turned to 0. EFO code relates to the trigger for the anti-flooding system

If you have EF0 then this error code means water has leaked into the base. This will be down to the over soaping.

What you need to do is pull the washer out and lean it 45 degs backwards as this will allow the water in the base to drain out and this will reset the flood switch in the base and clear the EF0 error code from there.

Then retry it and fingers crossed that's sorted it from there.

Let me know how it goes.
