"F20" is a water inlet problem. This indicates that you have no water or insufficient water supply. What Whirlpool recommends to do is unplug the washer and check your water inlet screens to ensure they are not clogged, check the inlet hoses for kinks, and to make sure your taps are turned on (duh! I know it sounds stupid, but I've seen it before).

To check the water inlet screens you will need to turn off the water supply and disconnect the hoses where they connect to the back of the washer. The inlet screens are located inside the tap fittings and sometimes will collect with sediment and rust depending on your water source. Some hoses also have sediment screens. Check them as well if you have them. Use cotton swabs to clean the screens, thoroughly.

Checking the hoses and taps is self-explanatory. The water supply coming into the washer should be at least 10-25 psi. Insufficient water pressure can cause problems with slow fills and/or error codes due to insufficient pressure. If you haven't had any problems before, I would suspect dirty inlet screens and/or a inlet valve failure.

If you need to replace the water inlet valve, searspartsdirect.com carries the part. Just type in your model number in the Search menu and look for item #1 under the "Dispenser Parts" heading (part #8182862). The part runs about $52.00.

I hope this helps you. If you need further assistance, please post back with any questions/concerns you may have.

SOURCE: Fault code F20 on kenmore he2t clothes washer

I had the F-28 code error on my 1-1/2 year old Kenmore HE2t. The door wouldn't unlock and I couldn't get the clothes out of it.
The repair tech, after calling other repair techs, decided it was the central electrical unit, page #8540540 (Whirlpool) -- now Part No. W10163007. I ordered it online for about $250 cheaper than the tech was going to charge (not including the additional labor charges).

SOURCE: f20 error code???

Ok, I found 2 solutions for this problem, I tried the first one, and it really seemed to work, but I think I will do the second one too.  First, if you have metal flood safe hoses, you need to look for debris blocking the filter at both ends.  I kept checking the screens at the washer end and not seeing anything, but there was debris located at the water supply end, stuck in the flood safe device that is in the metal hose.  Also, Flood safe hoses say to turn the water on to full pressure, but sometimes that can activate the flood safe device, so only turn your water supply on half way.  Make sure that the hoses are on right as well, the flood safe device needs to be at the end with the water supply, not the washer end.  You will be able to see the device (it looks like a little sieve) inside the hose.  
Another cause of this problem can be the filter IN your washer, it is located in the front just under the front bottom removable panel.  If you have a pet in the house, definitely check this out, a lot of hair gets stuck in that.  Just unscrew the front bottom panel, and then it is right in the middle at the bottom, a cone shaped filter.  Get a towel, because there will be water in there, too.

"F20" is a No Water Detect error.It is an indication that you either have no water coming into the washer, or very little water at all. If the pressure switch has not tripped after 6 minutes, the error code is displayed.
