Error Code E20

This is the third time in 2 weeks that I've gotten error code E20 or E21 and the first two times, my husband took the washer apart and found a sock in the pump. This has probably happened a total of 5 times in the two years I've had the washer, but now it's just getting annoying. Is there a reason it's happening more often???

It pauses with error code E20 and doesn't seem to drain or spin, could it be the filter is cloged?


The E20 error code is a class code that indicates a drain problem in the washer. This is consistent with the drain and spin problem that you are observing. To determine the exact error code, follow these steps:

Wake the machine by pressing any button

Wait 5 seconds

Press and hold the START and PAUSE/CANCEL buttons simultaneously

The exact error code (E21, E23 or E24) will be displayed.

If E23 or E24 are displayed, you will normally need to replace the control board due to a failed drain pump relay.

If the E21 code is displayed, I recommend that you follow these troubleshooting tips:

Check the washer drain to see if it is clogged.

Check the washer drain hose for a clog or restriction.

Make sure that the washer drain system complies with the installation instructions for the washer.

Try to gravity drain the washer by placing the drain hose in a bucket on the floor. If the washer will gravity drain, you may be able to

unplug the washer

and remove the bottom front service panel using the procedure in the image below. Arrange towels to catch residual water that may be in the washer and check the pump filter and drain trap for a clog or debris. If you find no clog or debris, then you may need to replace the drain pump. NOTE: You should not attempt this procedure unless you are completely confident in your technical ability to safely access and check the pump. Do not disassemble the drain pump hose if the washer is full of water.

E2 error code aw-8990st toshiba wash


Toshiba top load washers have standard error codes. Depending on the display (2 or 3 digits depending on the model) it will either show E21 (or E23) or alternate E2 and -1 (or E2 and -3). Here's a list of most Toshiba washers error codes;

E1: Water doesn't drain in time or not at all
E21: Lid open
E23: Lid not locking
E31: Load imbalance
E32: Check E1 and/or E31
E5: No water coming in

You can try resetting to factory default by following the procedure: Power OFF, then pressing and holding the Super Spin Dry button, press power ON and it should beep 3 times.

Hope this helps

Spin cycle goes very slow or doesn't work.


Hello, After looking at the User Manual for our Washer, E20 is an error code for the drain. It said that either the house drain line is clogged or the washer drain line is clogged. After my husband took the drain line off the washer, cleaned it out, we noticed that the lines had a lot of detergent build up and figured that this is probably the cause of the error code. We put the washer back together and it is working properly. We have always used the "he" detergent for the front loader and always used the proper amount; however, from now on, we will use less than the recommended amount.
I hope this helps some of you who are having this problem.

Thanks
