Take off the front panel, two screws on mine. On the right side you will see the pump with a black drain "boot". We raised the washer onto blocks and put a basin under it to catch the excess water. If you can't drain it, your gonna need a shop vac. There were three approximate 1 1/2" clamps, you'll need a pair of straight and channel lock pliers. (I replaced two of the clamps with radiator clamps to make it easier next time) Once you remove the 3 clamps theres a spring loaded clamp at the top of the boot. Lossen that and remove the boot. There is a plasic seine inside with about 3/8" holes. Clean it out. I found the missing blue sock, a string from a sweatshirt, two wire clamps, a paperclip and $1.26 in change. Check the pump impeller and make sure it is clear ans put it back together. Run a load before rplacing the front panel in case you need to tighten the clamps more. Hope this helps.

E20 .... I ALSO HAVE AN E20 WHICH I BELIEVE HAS SOMETHING TO DO WITH THE FACT THAT THE WATER IS NOT DRAINING FROM THE UNIT. MY ISSUE IS THAT THE PROPELLER IN THE PUMP BROKE AND WILL NOT PULL THE WATER TO DRAIN THE MACHINE. LISTEN TO IT WHEN YOU TRY TO RESTART THE CYCLE AND IF YOU CAN HEAR A RATTLE NOISE FROM THE BOTTOM OF THE MACHINE YOUR PUMP MAY NEED TO BE REPLACED OR NO NOISE MAY INDICATE THE PUMP HAS BURNED OUT. ONE OTHER THINK YOU MAY WANT TO CHECK BEFORE YOU GET SET ON REPLACING THE PUMP IS TO CHECK YOUR COIN COLLECTOR. REMOVE THE FRONT BOTTOM PANEL AND YOU WILL SEE A RUBBER BAG LOOKING THING THAT IS ATTACHED TO YOUR PUMP AND TUBE WITH CLAMPS. YOU MAY HAVE LINT OR A SOCK STUCK IN THE CATCH WHICH MAY BE PREVENTING WATER FROM DRAINING. I MUST WARN YOU IF YOU CANNOT GET YOUR MACHINE TO DRAIN BE PREPARED FOR A MINI FLOOD. HOPE THIS HELPS.

Is there a recall on Frigidaire front load washers. i have had mine for less than 5 years and motor is coroded. Very disappointed. especially for the cost. Debbie Richardson 706 8886362


You need to contact Frigidaire customer service for this, they will have all that information. I don't know of any recalls on any front loaders personally, but based on my experiences with them they are to be avoided, more trouble than they are worth and the are problem plagued compared to top loaders (my 2 top loaders have lasted about 20 years each). And then there is the cost to buy versus a top loader.

My frigidaire front laod washer has an E20 error message.


E20 error is known for pump out issue.The first thing I recommend is to take off the front bottom cover(below the door) tilt the washer back some,remove the clamps and hoses from the drain pump.It should be on your right hand side.Check the pump and hose to remove the clogging.This tends to be a common problem with Frigidaire front loaders.Now when you all done with that put it back together and do a test run.

Washer won't final spin


After charging me $275 to change the water pump, the repairman said I needed a new computer board for another $160. I went & bought a new washer - this time a regular top loader mechanical washer with no computer. The repairman said computerized washers & front loaders in particular have lots of problems. He said top loader Whirlpools have the least problems.

Frigidare front loader washer error message 20


If you open the top of the washer , there is a "tech" sheet in there to tell you how to reset the error codes.

My washer started this. Then stopped spinning. Now it will not even wash a load. It stops mid-cycle. The ER 20 means that something is not draining right. We checked all of the tubes leading to the pump. Nothing was clogged. The technition seems to think it is a motor controller error.

I have a Fridgidaire Front Loader Washer _ Affinity. It has an error message flashing. E10. What does that mean? What do I do to fix it?


I have a Fridgidaire Front Loader Washer _ Affinity that flashed the E10 error code. I also had the problem with the fabric softener dispenser not emptying, and staying full of water. The problem was the cold water filter on the back of the washing machine that was semi-plugged. Cleaned the filter and now works perfectly. My machine is no longer flashing the Error code 10. The dispenser works perfectly.
