    E20 is not an exact error code. It's indicating a possible pump out
    problem. Here is a few possible causes of an E20 error code:



    1. Restriction in the drain pump

    2. Failed pump

    3. Water not pumping out fast enough (crimped drain hose)

    4. Too many suds ( too much detergent or wrong kind)

    5. Pressure switch (not communicating with control board)

    6. Loose wire at pressure switch

    7. Loose wire at pump or control board

    8. Failed control board

    Most likely there is something blocking the motor spinning. This is from the afore-mentioned article:

    "Thanks to the different postings on the net about a E20 error code I
    took apart my washer’s drain system ATF7000 to find. A pare of little
    girls underpants, one hair band, one plastic green gem, a golf ball
    sized wad of wrappers/stickers/???, and almost two dollars in coins.
    All caught up in the plastic strainer located inside the black rubber
    boot found on the bottom of the tub leading into the drain pump.

    Here is how I did it: After emptying the washer of sloppy contents, I
    sucked as much of the water out with a shop-vac. I then turned the
    washer onto it’s left side gently using a couple of towels as a cushion
    (unplugging the washer and hoses first). From the bottom and back panel
    you can access the drain hose/pump/coin catch. With a pair of pliers
    you can remove the clamp holding smaller end of the rubber coin catch
    to the tub, with a Phillips screw driver you can remove the larger
    clamp of the rubber coin catch to the tub. From the back panel you
    again use your pliers to remove the clamp to the drain line, and
    finally with a Philips screw driver remove the two screws holding the
    pump to the bottom of the washer. Oh yah, do not forget to unplug the
    wire from the pump. Now pull the pump out with the black rubber boot
    still attached. Mark the orientation of the pump to the boot with a
    sharpie pen, and remove the last clamp. Now look inside the black
    rubber boot and gently remove the plastic basket inside, there you will
    find the treasures that just wasted the last hour of your time. Now
    reveres those steps, reinsert the half washed clothes, and enjoy your
    new machine.

    Thanks again to everyone that has posted before me, otherwise I
    wouldn’t have known were to even start looking. I hope this helps
    someone."

    Another possible cause of that is the detergent dispenser door is not
    closed properly. Just need to make sure it's closed all the way. If
    these do not solve the problem, then I recommend calling in the repairman.

    Hope that helps!

Will not drain and spin keep beeping with error E20


  1. Remove the 2 screws on the bottom and the front access panel comes off.
  2. Pump is on the right, remove hoses from it, remove pump from machine and remove whatever is in the pump.
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.

Spin cycle goes very slow or doesn't work.


Hello, After looking at the User Manual for our Washer, E20 is an error code for the drain. It said that either the house drain line is clogged or the washer drain line is clogged. After my husband took the drain line off the washer, cleaned it out, we noticed that the lines had a lot of detergent build up and figured that this is probably the cause of the error code. We put the washer back together and it is working properly. We have always used the "he" detergent for the front loader and always used the proper amount; however, from now on, we will use less than the recommended amount.
I hope this helps some of you who are having this problem.

Thanks

Frigidaire front load washer (LTF600ES1) Error E20


Your washer is not draining properly. You need to check if the drain hose is kinked and also whether the household drain is running smoothly.
