"F20" is a Water Inlet problem. This means you either have insufficient water pressure, the taps are turned off (not trying to insult your intelligence), the water inlet hoses are kinked, or the water inlet valve may be clogged with sediment. You need a minimum of 10-25 psi of water pressure in order for the washer to work correctly. Also, if you live in an area that has hard water, or if you use well water, you may have rust or sediment clogged in the inlet valve. However, if you just purchased the washer, I would tend to doubt that it is clogged already. It takes some time for this to happen. It still may be worth your effort just to double check your installation, check the hoses for kinks and the sediment screens for clogs. Just turn off the water at the taps and disconnect the hoses from the back of the washer. The sediment screens are inside the inlet valve on the back of the washer. The inlet vlave is also controlled by electronic solenoids. I would normally recommend that you check to make sure the electrical connections are plugged in correctly and then instruct you to do resistance checks to make sure the solenoids are good. However, once again, if you just purchased the appliance you have a one year limited warranty that comes from the manufacturer. If you open the appliance or attempt any repairs on your own, this may void your warranty. NOTE: The warranty does NOT cover installation, however. That's why I strongly suggest you doublecheck your installation. If this isn't a simple matter of installation, I would recommend you honor your warranty and save yourself from having to pay for repairs. I hope you find this information helpful. Let me know if I can assist you any further.

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

I'd like to know what the F20 message means on the Duet washer. I do not have a manual. Also, how do I get rid of it. Could it be an unbalanced load? Thank you for your assistance. Marilyn...


"F20" error code is a No Water Detected error. It is an indication that you either have no water coming into the washer, or very little water at all due to low pressure. If the pressure switch has not tripped after 6 minutes, the error code is displayed. This can be a potential problem with the following:

What does the F20 flashing code mean on whirlpool duet washer


I believe F20 may point towards a control unit failure.
You could try disconnecting it from the mains supply for a minute and plug it back in.
Hope this helps
