Question about Whirlpool Washing Machines

1 Answer

I have a whirlpool front end load washer and have been getting an f20 error message. we checked the inline water (fine), also the screen inline to the washer (clean). When starting a cycle, we note water entering the inside of the washer fine- then it stops and gives the error. Any advice would be appreciated. Help!!

Code f 20 what does that mean and how can I fix it.


A possible solution to an f 20 fill error for a whirlpool duet washing machine. Blow out the pressure hose that connects to the pressure switch.

Before doing any of these fixes first ask yourself if you have over loaded the machine. Too many Bulky - heavy items will cause this same message.
How to fix Whirlpool Duet F20 Error:
Whirlpool uses a flow meter that detects the flow of water entering the washer. If this flow meter does not detect the correct amount of water entering the washer it will sound the F20 error code. Often this repair can be made with out calling an appliance repairman and without ordering parts. Start by removing the washer fill hoses; both the cold and the hot water hoses. Check for proper water pressure from the house. To do so, turn the water on and put the hose inside the washer or a bucket.
If water pressure is good, check the water valve inlet screens. Most residential washing machines have inlet screens. The screens prevent minerals from clogging the solenoid. With the hoses removed, you can visually inspect the water inlet screens. If the water valve screens are clear the inlet valve with the screens itself will need to be replaced. To replace the water valve, remove the top of the washing machine. Three screws hold the top down. The screws that hold the top down are on the back of the top panel. Once removed the top will slide back and off. Now remove the wire harness that connects to the valve. One screw holds the valve to the washers cabinet. Removing the screw and sliding the valve over will release the valve from the back panel enabling you to complete your repair.
One last thing to check is the fill hoses. These front load duet washers call for a lot of water quickly. So if you have stainless steel braided flood-safe hoses, they will trip for no reason at all. Replace these flood safe hoses with more traditional hoses.

Code is F20, what does this mean?


Hi

Error F20 means Water Inlet Problem-no water or insufficient water supply. This issue can appear due to faulty inlet valves or due to blocked inlet hoses. Also check the filter screen at inlet valve, clean them if they are dirty. Select PAUSE/CANCEL twice to cancel the cycle. Unplug the washer or disconnect the power. Now check whether water faucets completely turned on? Make sure that the water inlet hoses are not frozen. If above things seems to be fine then you would need to replace the water inlet/fill valve.

Hope this helps... Please post back if you need more information. Daniel

I am having trouble with my washer. It is showing the F28 error code and then when I get that fixed, it shows the F20 error code. Can you please tell me what to do to get it running again. Thanks


F20 I believe is low water flow. On the intake fitting on the back of the machine where the hot and cold hose hook up there is a fine screen inside the fitting on the machine. My cold water screen was clogged from stuff in old pipes. Cleaned it and no more e F20

F20 error message


If you have no water in the tub it is an inlet error. Look for clogged screens on the inlet water valve. You did pay the water bill didn't you?
If you have water in the tub you gonna want to check for a clogged pump or a clogged pressure tube going to the brain. Could be snow or ice clogging the drain or any kind of drain problem.

When washing stops and flashes f20


That code means "No water or Insufficient water supply" Check the water supply valve, the fill hose screen for debris... Good luck let me know if that solved it..
