Fixing error E20 on the Frigidaire Affinity 7000 Washer

Error code E20 is often not included on the list of error codes for this washing machine. The error E20 means that the coin trap/drainage hose needs cleaned out.
The coin trap is underneath the machine on the right hand side.There is a plate that covers the bottom of the machine, yet it most likely will have an access hole in it.
The coin trap is usually black and a somewhat accordian shaped looking hose.
To begin UNPLUG the machine .
Then use old towels to soak up excess water that is still inside the drum.
Next if the washer sets ontop a pedestal drawer seperate them by unscewing the screws in the back and under the front of the machine.
Now tip the machine onto its back making sure that it is safe and will not fall while you are working on it.
Look at the bottom of the machine and you will see an access hole.
looking through that hole with a flashlight you will see to the right a black hose with a slight accordian look to it.
At the top of that hose is a screw .This screw is connected to a wire type cable which goes around the hose, and that is what when tightened keeps the hose from coming loose from the drum.
Loosen the screw and pull the coin trap hose away from the drum enough to squeeze your hand into the hose.
Now clean out the hose as far as you can reach into it.
Take your time and get as much gunk out as you can.Unless you desire to redo these steps in a month or so!
When done place the hose back where it was and retighten the screw cable combo.Make sure it is tight and in the correct place;if not the machine will leak water onto the floor while in use.
After this then you may set the machine back up correctly and reattach the washer to the pedestal.
Take preventive measures and all ways check pockets before washing items!

Model EDI97170W code error E20 appear on the LCD panel.. is means for


An Electrolux?

The E20 fault code means there is a blockage in the drainage system of the machine.

Check the drain hose, the laundry sink tub and also the pump filter at the bottom right hand side of the washing machine on the front of the cabinet. Pry the door open, undo the filter bung and clean out the pump housing ok,

One of these is blocked and it is restricting the flow of water when the machine should be fully drained before spinning.

This is a blocked drain error code (E20) which can be due to a clogged/kinked drain hose, blocked drain filter/coin trap, or a broken drain pump. The link below provides the detailed troubleshooting procedure of this error code. In addition, replace the drain pump after having found no problem with the drain hose, cleaned the filter, and checked the drain pump impeller but the drain pump just hums, buzzes or whirs.

error codes E20


Hi

Error code e20 means a clogged drain pump. This might have happened due to small clips, pins, coins, etc being stuck in the pump. Please note that error e20 can also occur when the drain pump is not pumping fast enough or when the pump fails. To fix the issue you'll need to check the drain pump.
Remove the 2 screws from the bottom of the front access panel, it will come off. Now check for the pump on the right side and remove hoses from it. Remove pump from machine then remove whatever is there in the pump. Hope this helps... Please post back for any further assistance.
