Computer turns ON but there is no display?

Drain it! You might be surprised that one day as you turn your computer on, it shows no display. It can be caused by electrical charges on the motherboard, I do not specifically know how it affects the display but in case this happens to you try to do a Power Drain. It's easy, first, take the battery out from the laptop and unplug the AC Adapter if it is connected(for desktops, unplug power cord from the CPU/tower) then press and hold the power button down for at least 30 seconds. plug power supply back into your system and turn it back on. There goes your display once again.

Washing machine turns off and it shows f20 on display


HI. this code represents a Long Drain issue.

If the drain time exceeds 8 minutes, the water valves are turned off and F20 is flashed.

Press PAUSE/CANCEL twice to clear the display.

NOTE: After 4 minutes the “Sud” error will be displayed, then 4 minutes later the F20 error code will be displayed.

Potential Causes

• Check the drain hose and make sure it is not plugged or kinked
• Check the electrical connections at the pump and make sure the pump is running.
• Check the drain pump filter for foreign objects(located, and mounted on the actual pump. (You will need to remove the front lower panel to access the pump and filter)
• If the above does not correct the problem replace the pump.
