E20 is an error code for drainage failure.



Check where the appliance drain hose connects to the house drains for a blockage.

If it's onto a spigot under the sink, take them off and check both for a blockage.

If these are ok then it's likely to be a blockage in the pump.



You'll need to drain the water out manually.

Put a shallow dish below the filter and slacken the filter.

Tighten it to stop the flow of water while you empty the dish.

Once empty, take the filter out, clean out the debris and ensure nothing is left jamming the pump.

Before refitting the filter, put the machine on drain or spin and listen at the filter housing to see if you can hear the pump running.

If you do, fit the filter and try the machine again.

    Frigidaire washer won't finish cycle


    Hello Ellen Greer - This particular issue can be caused by quite a few reasons. Washer could be experiencing a communication error from the main control board, faulty door lock assembly, faulty pump or the timer itself is not operating correctly. Did you notice a humming noise? If so, either the drainage hose/pump is clogged and needs to be cleaned or could possibly have another issue with the door lock assembly or pressure switch. You can also press and hold the start/pause and cancel button together at the same time for approximately 30 seconds to display an error code on the LED. What error code does it display? However, I would suggest contacting a professional to accurately diagnose the washer.

    Kenmore Super Capacity 3.5 error code E59


    see the error code E59= E59 equals no tachometer signal for 3 seconds.
    This means that the motor is not signaling to the washer normally and may be caused by a variety of failures within the motor, basket or the control board. Generally speaking, the E59 error requires the service of a Frigidaire professional for resolution due to the technical nature of the ERROR.
    God bless you

    Error message E27 appears and washer won't operate.


    E27 means there is a problem with the door lock. Unplug the machine for 5 minutes and try again. If the error code returns you will need to replace the door lock assembly.


    If you have anymore questions please comment me back.

    Theres a code "LF" beeping....


    Hello there and thank you for choosing fixya
    When your washer displays error LF , it is due to low water pressure, slow or continuous fill.All washers are designed to operate with a water supply pressure of 20-100 PSI. When the pressure drops below 20 PSI the washer can have the following problems;
    • Slow Fill- low water pressure reduces the speed at which water flows into the machine.
      • Verify the pressure at all other water sources in the house (i.e. sinks, showers, etc..). If you find other places where the pressure is low, the problem is not with the machine but with the water supply.
    • Continuous Fill- The valve may not fully seat under 20 PSI which would allow for a constant flow even when the machine isn't supposed to be filling.
      • Contact the water company to verify the pressure being supplied to the house
    • Error Codes- LF for long fill or FH for no water detected.
      • A plumber may need to be consulted if the pressure is found to be too low.

    Error code


    Hi,

    The reason for "F 20" is that while there is "NO WATER DETECTED ENTERING MACHINE OR PRESSURE SWITCH TRIP NOT DETECTED." If after 30 seconds not minimum 0.1l of water entered or maximum fill time of 13 minutes is exceeded, the valves will be turned off and the error code will be displayed. Press PAUSE/CANCEL twice to clear the display.
    The possible fix for this problem is:
    If there is no water in the unit: Make sure that both valves at the water source(s) are turned on all the way.
    Check for plugged or kinked inlet hoses or plugged screens in the inlet valves.
    Verify inlet valve operation.

    If there is water in the unit: Verify that the pressure switch hose is in good condition and
    properly connected to tub and pressure switch.
    1. Unplug washer or disconnect power.
    2. Verify there is not a siphon problem.
    3. Verify wire harness connections to inlet valves, pressure switch, flow meter, and Central Control Unit (CCU).
    4. Check all hoses for possible leaks.
    5. Plug in washer or reconnect power.
    6. Verify pressure switch operation.
    7. Verify flow meter operation by blowing air through the part and measuring the resistance.
    8. Verify CCU operation by running a Diagnostic test or any cycle.
