Zanussi Electrolux ZWF 1430 W (E20 error)

Hi I have a Zanussi Electrolux ZWF 1430 W and it's coming up with an E20 error code. The machine starts off OK but after about 25 minutes the Error Code E20 starts flashing in display and the machine stops with all the water still inside. I tried pausing the machine and skiping on to the next cycle and at first the machine strats spining again but after a few minutes the machine just stops and no error messages come up. I have misplaced the manual so can't look up what the error code means and shall be grateful if you could help me rectify the problem or shed some more light on it. Many thanks

Check water "forreign object trap". It's under the lid at the bottom of the machine. First drain water by pulling out the hose and pull out the plug. Then unscrew the trap. Have had this E20 error twice. First it was two coins there, next it was a big paperclip. Have worked fine ever since.Zanussi Electrolux ZWF 1430 W (E20 error) - 11_20_2011_8_57_27_am.jpg

E20 keeps coming up on washing machine and wont drain


E20 is a code for the consumer only. Electrolux would determine this to be E23 most commonly. This is because there is a blockage in the filter, drain hose or plumbing

I have a Zanussi Electrolux ZWF 1430 W and it's coming up with an E20 error code. The machine starts off OK but after about 25 minutes the Error Code E20 starts flashing in display and the machine stops...


E20 is a draining error.
  1. First, try to reset the machine to factory settings first by setting cycle selector to off position for 5 sec, then to spin for 5 sec, then back to off for 5 sec, and then to spin. The machine should reset allowing you to select the drain cycle and get the water out of the machine then run a spin cycle to clear any remaining water before you unscrew the filter to clear it.
  2. Next, you need to take the filter out at the front, bottom right, of the machine, empty it of all lint and replace it. It may have water trapped in so be ready to soak up excess liquid! Also, make sure when you put it back in you have tightened it enough to avoid leaking but not too much that you cannot get it back out.
  3. If this doesn't fix the problem, check your drain pipe hoses to make sure they are not kinked and flush them out.
  4. Last but not least, replace the drain pump.

E20 code. Not draining


E20 is a general error code to get to the real problem try this..
Reading Error Codes 1. Wake the washer by pressing any button. 2. Wait 5 seconds. 3. Press and hold the START/PAUSE and CANCEL buttons simultaneously. As long as the buttons are held, the failure code will appear in the display as an “E” followed by two numbers, a number and a letter or two letters. The control will beep and the Door Lock, Wash, Rinse, and Final Spin indicator lights will flash. let me know what code come up... hope it helps

Error E20 means the machine has failed to pump out. 1st check the filter at the bottom right hand side there may still be water inside if so pull the grey tab to the left of the filter there should be a thin hose extend it put it into a shallow dish and pull the cap off to let the water drain this may be a slow process. When the filters out look into the hole with a torch to see if any obstructions in the pump impeller this looks like a cross. If the filters and pump are clear it may be the pump has failed.

Zanussi Electrolux ZWF 1430 W (E20 error)


I'm fairly sure that this is a warning that the filter is blocked. There is a filter in the bottom right hand corner of the machine.

Now, as stated by the other user here, your problem is that you have a machine full of water and if you remove the filter, you are going to get a very wet floor. The trick here is:

Turn the power off at the mains and remove the plug from the wall. Wait ten minutes. This SHOULD power off the safety feature that allows you to open the front load door.

Presuming it does, pull the machine out if it is under a work surface and taking great care because of the weight, tip tha machine backwards until the water level is below the door (Having a chair or a box to rest the back of the machine on is a good plan here, so you don't tip it beyond about 45% and have it fall on ots back.

If the door will open, then you can now rescue any clothes and bale out the water with a cup. Once you gave got to all the water you can (Memember there is still more waqter out of sight and in the pipe going to the filter!) You can now tip the machine back a little further until the water is clear of the filter in the botton right of the machine.

NOW, you can take the filter out, remove the fliff, couns, old sock and other debris clogging it and screw it back in place. TIp the machine back on to its feet and put it back.

Now, make a note in your diary to check the filter ever 6-8 weeks or so. Once you have done a few check and cleans, you will figure out how oftem you need to clean the filter, which depends on what you wash and how much you wash it.

Have you took the front cover off and looked for the strainer which is located before the water pump. I have seen many of them plugged tightly, causing the water not to drain. Look inside the owners manual that came with the machine. It also should give you some things to check that would cause the code E20 to keep flashing. Hope this helps.
