I understand you are getting error code EF0 on your AEG Lavamat washing machine, is that correct?

Expert:  Pete itpeter replied 8 days ago.

The EF0 error indicates a possible problem with the detergent. Did you perhaps put too much detergent power into the machine?

Expert:  Pete itpeter replied 8 days ago.

If the dispenser drawer or the sprinkler plate over the drawer is very dirty or covered in limescale, the water may flow out and cause the problem. Clean the dispenser drawer in accordance with the user manual and try the appliance again.

Expert:  Pete itpeter replied 8 days ago.

When a lot of soap powder is used or a lot of foam is produced, the level system can get blocked by foam. Try rinsing out the machine and use less detergent powder. 

Expert:  Pete itpeter replied 8 days ago.

Also check for any leaks around the filter and door seal, and ensure there are no clothes trapped between the door seal and glass the door causing a leak.

I think this may be the problem. Too much detergent. I think they used some washing up liquid on the drum. But how can I fix it? How can I rinse if doesnt working any programme? And also beed 2 days ago..
Expert:  Pete itpeter replied 8 days ago.

You will need to rinse out the macine and ensure there are no blockages anywhere in the drain. Try running a quick rinse and spin cycle.

Ok. Understand. But doesnt working any circle...
Expert:  Pete itpeter replied 8 days ago.
Have you checked that the drain filter is not clogged up with detergent?
Customer: replied 8 days ago.
i cleaned up the filter and still doesnt working
Expert:  Pete itpeter replied 8 days ago.

Has the drain pump been checked and tested for blockages or damage? This will require removing the pump from the machine to check the internal impellers.
