SOURCE: E20 message

The filter is blocked. Disconnect your power source. Open the panel. Have a towel or wet vac handy and a screw driver. There is a silver ring circling the drainage hose with a small screw on top. Loosen the screw. Pinch the hose on top and let water drain to wet vac or towel. Completely remove the hose from it's housing. Reach your thumb and index finger inside that same hose and pull out the filter. It looks like a small plastic cup with holes in it. Clean it out, wash it. Use your fingers or dry vac hose and feel the bottom of the inside of the hose where the plastic cup came from. Remove any debri that excaped past the filter with fingers or suction with hose til you can feel with your fingers that the bottom of the inside of the hose is clear. return the cup back inside the hose. Put the silver ring over the lip of the hose then place the hose back on it's metal housing which is attached to the machine. Make sure the hole is secured around the entire metal (if not you will get leakage). Tighten the small screw, pull down at the hose making sure it will not come off with the pressure of the water. Clean up any leakage. Close panel and I promise you, your problem will be solved. Good luck, from Cheryl AlAlexander

E20 normally means there is a blockage in the drain tube/filter. I have the same problem, but the drain tube is clear. I have searched the web and found the solution being down to the "plastic bottle-like condensor having debris/fluff in it".

E40 is door interlock error, it means that either the door interlock is stuck or faulty, or the wiring from door interlock to main control board are not connected.

SOURCE: Hi, good evening. I have a zanussi iz12 washing

Just try putting your machine through a 95 degree wash. This may clear the build up in the pressure chamber.

SOURCE: My Zanussi ZWD 1470W won't fill up with water. I

Story could be lengthly so in brief, check to see if drain pump is not blocked and if door latch is functioning correctly.(use a multimeter if you can). If it all measures out as good, then your control is faulty. Does the water fill up to the correct level when you start the cycle? Does the motor hum when trying to run. If so check the capacitor.

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 am getting a Code E20 on Zanussi Washer Dryer ZWD 1271W


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.

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

E20 = Problems with water drain in wash phase ALARM CODES E20 Is the drain filter clean; Problems during draining phase (Machine tries to drain for 10 min without emptying the tub) Checks to do: E20 Is the drain pump working? Is the value of the pump about 200Ω? (Measure directly the connector by the board, between J2-2 and J2-7) ; If No Change the pump and run again Clean the filter; Is the draining system OK (drain hose and plumbing where machine is connected) Free and check the draining system; Is the pump blocked? Is there any burn mark on the control board; if yes Change the board E90 = Communication error between user interface and main board. Verify the connector between the main board and user interface board by plugging and unplugging the connector few times on both sides, OR replace the blue ribbon cable. The fault could have been caused by oxidized contacts in user interface plugged in the main board. Kind Regards David Marsh
