Error code 20 on Westinghouse Dishwasher

Hi,My Westinghouse dishwsher SB916 has just developed a problem. Its 6 months old (still covered by warrantee).It gets partway through the cycle (random amount - but seems to be about 20-30 minutes in) and then stops. An error code of "20" comes up on the display. When I turn the power off and then back on, the dishwasher resumes ... and runs for another few minutes (again up to about 20) before the same thing happens.Any ideas?

Hello Friend,

Welcome to fixya.
I'm Huuum and happy to assist you,

Try this remedy.

When we have an error code this is the remedy.
This can reset the system.
First turn it off.
Cut power to the washer at the breaker and wait a 5 minutes then restart it.

It's like rebooting your computer when its acting strange!
Usually it corrects some error problems if they are not serious.
Or they are sometimes just a glitch.
Write back right away and let me know that it worked and solved the problem .
Bless You

How old is the appliance?








Here is an interesting report I just read.

Repair or replace?

When to pull the plug on your old refrigerator

It nearly always makes sense to undertake simple do-it-yourself repairs,
such as replacing a gasket on a refrigerator or a freezer.

Typically, you'll also find a troubleshooting section for more-serious problems
in the owner's manual.

Should you pay for a repair or buy a new model?
The answer depends mostly on the age of your refrigerator,
how much you bought it for,and the cost of the repair.

Follow these guidelines:

When a repair makes sense.

If your refrigerator is under warranty or less than four years old (three years for top-freezers),
paying for a repair makes sense.
Note that refrigerators under warranty might require service from a factory-authorized technician;
readers have found them on a par with independent repairers.

When a repair might be a wise choice.

If your refrigerator is out of warranty and is four to seven years old,
it might make sense to pay for a repair. Customers generally pay $100 to $200 for a repair.
But you might want to buy a new model even at this stage,
given that today's models are quieter and have added features.
Higher energy efficiency is another plus: Energy Star-qualified models made after April 28, 2008,
are 43 percent more efficient than conventional models built before 2001 and 56 percent
more efficient than those built before 1993.

When it pays to replace.

The repair costs more than half the price of a comparable new refrigerator.
Data also shows that it doesn't pay to fix a less-expensive top-freezer refrigerator
six or more years old or a bottom-freezer or side-by-side eight or more years old.

Thanks to better recycling programs, less than 10 percent
of a refrigerator you replace is likely to end up in a landfill.


Thanks for giving me the opportunity to help!

SOURCE: Error Code OE

Hi there,
The most common cause of an OE error code on a modern LG dishwasher is:
1. Blocked drain hose
2. Obstruction in the sump area (beneath the filter, which needs to be removed to check for onstruction)
3. Failing drain motor. 

else you need to REPLACE THE PCB POWER CONTROL BOARD

Good Luck!!!

SOURCE: Error code 2H

The control panel needs to be replaced (indicated by the "2H" error code displayed at the start of the cycle).
BTW - The number 1 displayed at the end of the cycle indicates the cycle has timed out (i.e., it doesn't mean 1 minute remaining). Hence the continued running of the unit. Until you replace the control panel, you'll have to manually cancel the cycle at this point.

SOURCE: F4 error fisher & paykel nautilus dishwasher

F4 is a heating error- dishwasher has not reached temperature in allocated time. If intermittent fault, problem is usually with electronic board, which has temperature sensor attached. Sometimes the wiring to the control board burns out and can give intermittent false readings causing F4 error. Disconnect from power, remove front panel (4 screws down each side). You can now see wiring going to control board- check for burnt wires. Also check temperature sensor (small square with two purple wires) is stuck to inner door panel- if this is not stuck to inner panel, temperature sensor will not work properly. If in any doubt, call in the experts!!

SOURCE: LG Dishwasher making grinding noise then blinking E1 code 10 minutes later

Ive got an LG LD1204w1 model dishwasher, the grinding sound started about a week before the E1 error code and incessant dinging began. I found FixYa the best site for LG solutions, the wiring had fused to the lining on the door as suggested, so a bit of electrical tape has done the trick as far as the E1 error and dinging is concerned (thankfully no broken wires)
However I still have the grinding sound during the wash cycle. Drainage and fill hoses are to specifications stated by LG, there is no wear on inspection, the unit isnt losing water during wash so the air/water issue I dont think is relevant to my situation. Is there anything else that could possibly be causing the awful noise its making? The noise seems to be coming from the bottom/underside of the dishwasher.

Hi, I have error message 20 on BDW14 Baumatic. Dishwasher won't start. What does it mean? Thank you..


Error 20 is not a listed error in Baumatic dishwasher. They only mention E1 to E7.

There is a reset procedure for random errors which can be viewed at this page.

I think you chose a Westinghouse Lemon, go this site and read all of the negative reviews of this model;

http://reviews.cnet.com/flat-panel-tvs/westinghouse-sk-32h240s/4852-6482_7-32429419-2.html?tag=userReviews;page

Here's just one of the reviews;"best chunk of aluminum i ever had the fortune to buy"by stevecox25 on June 11, 2009-->
"Horrible customer service on a worse television" by westinghousecrap on March 20, 2009 Pros: Good picture once it is properly adjusted.
Cons: Low quality audio, had the TV for 10.5 months and the picture went out, sent the TV at MY expense to TX, and I've been waiting for 2 months, and customer service can only say that there is a "delay". And they don't send a new TV, it's a rebuild.
Summary: Please don't waste your money on this TV, spend a little more on a different brand and save yourself the headaches I've had. I'll never purchase a Westinghouse product again. Customer service has been no help, and their answers are vague at best. Learn from my nightmare, NCAA march madness on a old 19" TV because my Westinghouse quit working 2 months ago and they still haven't replaced it.

Westinghouse 47" hd lcd 1080p


It does not need to be a blown speaker to be causing the problem. The issue (unless you have a habit of running the TV at maximum volume) is more then likely in the audio circuit of the TV.
Since it is only 6 months old, I would be straight onto Westinghouse to have it repaired under warranty.
