Question about Washing Machines

Open Question

My front loading washing has twice had this problem. The model # is 970C47092-00 SERIAL# IS XC72808621. This is the secondtime this has happened. I put a load in it, set it and when I go to put the clothes in the dryer it has not gone through the cycle. The message today was E20. That's telling what the problem is,I presume.

holla, Im not showing a E20 code on the tech sheet. There is a E21. Water not draining fast enough. Try holding the start/pause and cancel key together for 3 seconds. The door lock, wash, rinse and final spin leds should light. Any error codes should be displayed when holding those keys. If you see a different error code, post it. If not, I would suspect a clogged pump...Catriver.

SOURCE: E20 message

Hi Helenw,
The error message E20, simply means the filter plastic cage which is located behind the trap door bottom right side of the machine is full and needs to be cleaned out.
All the fibres and lint gets trapped in here and prevents the waste water from escaping, hence Error code E20.

Regards,
David

This means that the filter is clogged. Get a towel (or two) in our case, and then unscrew the filter. It'll be full of lint.

SOURCE: E20 Error Code

Greetings jeanne1568,

Other consumers have reported this error message and found it relates to your "Coin trap assembly" being blocked, therefore not allowing all the water to pump out. The suggestion out there is to remove the front access panel, and remove the clamp that connects this trap assembly to the pump and clean it out.

I hope this helps.

SOURCE: Visible water level in front-load clothes washing machine?

Yes, it is normal. There is water in the machine. One of the big draws for this style machine is that they use much less water than top load machines. If you stopped the cycle and opened the door, dug down in the clothes, you would find water. The machine fills a small amount of water (below the level of the door) and tumbles. As the water is absorbed by the clothing, the water level drops, so the machine adds more to maintain the water level. This is basically how the washer figures out how big your clothes load is and how much water that load needs. (Of course most sales persons at the big box stores and Sears have no idea how this works)
If you'd like, try running a cycle with no clothes to see how much water is in the machine. (It's not a lot) Now remember this: Because there is so much less water use than a top load machine, you must cut way way way back on the amount of soap and fabric softener used. Use no more than one tablespoon of HE (High Efficiency) soap (even less if it is 2x or 3x concentrate) and one teaspoon of fabric softener per load !!!!!
This should be a Fix-Ya for your question. Thanks.

Where is the switch located on the front door of front loader washing machine


Hello Friend, that's a great question!

In order to provide you the correct location of the door switch on your Frigidaire front load washer, I will need your model number. The serial tag, which lists your model number, is typically located on the upper front, as you open the door. Thank you! - Z

3e error code washing


3E is an error code related to the motor speed or speed sensor. It could be a bad motor, or perhaps a foreign object impeding motor function. Depending on your expertise, you could tear down the motor assembly and check for problems, or else contact a repair technician. Given that it's happened twice, it will likely happen again.
