Thank you SO much for your solution dated June 2008. I followed your advice and found one of my kids socks in the drainage area under neath. Not quite sure how it got there - but its out and now my washer seems to be working just fine. Thank you SO very much!!! As a stay at home mom I appreciate your advice to save on a service call!

From what you have described your Frigidaire washer is displaying an error code of E20. I am not showing that as a valid error code and I would recommend performing a reset on your washer. You can reset your washer by disconnecting power from it for at least ten minutes. If you continue to experience issues with that error code please respond back and additionally provide me with your model number. You can locate your serial tag (which lists your model number) on the door frame of the washer. Once I have that information I would be able to further assist you. I look forward to helping you further. -Matt
E20 error is known for pump out issue.The first thing I recommend is to take off the front bottom cover(below the door) tilt the washer back some,remove the clamps and hoses from the drain pump.It should be on your right hand side.Check the pump and hose to remove the clogging.This tends to be a common problem with Frigidaire front loaders.Now when you all done with that put it back together and do a test run.
E20 code for Frigidaire is a drain problem. To unclog, you need to get into the lower unit of the machine and disconnect and unclog the rubber connectors that atttach to the pump. Believe it or not, a sock can get stuck there and cause the problem. To get to this part of the machine, you can remove the lower front panel. Just be careful and not damage the rubber parts and when you reconnect, make sure that they are sealing properly. You shoudn't need any new parts to fix, if indeed its the problem! Best of luck.
An e20 error is a slow drain. Basically you have a clogged pump. I just had to unclog one today! Unfortunately they are a little hard to get at. Usually they have a small sock or coin stuck in them. The pump is located in the right back. Good news, no cost to fix, bad it's just going to take some time.
E20 .... I ALSO HAVE AN E20 WHICH I BELIEVE HAS SOMETHING TO DO WITH THE FACT THAT THE WATER IS NOT DRAINING FROM THE UNIT. MY ISSUE IS THAT THE PROPELLER IN THE PUMP BROKE AND WILL NOT PULL THE WATER TO DRAIN THE MACHINE. LISTEN TO IT WHEN YOU TRY TO RESTART THE CYCLE AND IF YOU CAN HEAR A RATTLE NOISE FROM THE BOTTOM OF THE MACHINE YOUR PUMP MAY NEED TO BE REPLACED OR NO NOISE MAY INDICATE THE PUMP HAS BURNED OUT. ONE OTHER THINK YOU MAY WANT TO CHECK BEFORE YOU GET SET ON REPLACING THE PUMP IS TO CHECK YOUR COIN COLLECTOR. REMOVE THE FRONT BOTTOM PANEL AND YOU WILL SEE A RUBBER BAG LOOKING THING THAT IS ATTACHED TO YOUR PUMP AND TUBE WITH CLAMPS. YOU MAY HAVE LINT OR A SOCK STUCK IN THE CATCH WHICH MAY BE PREVENTING WATER FROM DRAINING. I MUST WARN YOU IF YOU CANNOT GET YOUR MACHINE TO DRAIN BE PREPARED FOR A MINI FLOOD. HOPE THIS HELPS.
the door won't lock, then i broke the grey thing that the door prong or latch locks into by slaming the door. its a little plastic grey hole hole. i don't see what holds the grey plastic thing in the hole. or how to order it. can you help. ? but the door wouldn't lock before that, i think the 3 and 4 year old kids play hanging on the door. how do you fix it. 2006 afinity fron loader washer. thank you. cheryl
The problem is a faulty Door Latch Assembly. The same thing happened to my Frigidaire front load washer. The part is easy to install, costs about 60 dollars and can be picked up at most appliance repair stores . To access the switch just remove the wire around the front drum gasket, peel back the rubber gasket beside the switch assembly then remove the two screws holding it in place.
remove the three wire connector blocks and swap in the new switch. My washer was giving me error code 41 witch is a faulty control board. But the problem was in fact only the switch...
