Take the kick panel off inside you will find the tech sheet it will give you a list of error codes. i believe you have a bad pressure switch or it could be something stuck in your pump. untwist and check the pump filter. let me know how it goes

My kenmore elite smartwash quitepak 9 keeps reading f20


Hi from retired Englishman in SW France,

Whirlpool (Kenmore and others) 'F20' stands for 'control unit failure', sorry.
It COULD be poor plug/cable contact but certainly requires a service call ;-0(

If this has assisted and/or clarified the situation for you please consider a 4 thumbs up on our rating.
Thanks and good luck!

Error "F6" on my Smartwash Quite Pak9


I believe the F6 code is a motor failure. I suggest you call a pro to come out and look at it.

Code F20 is appearing on me washing machine


Hi

Error F 20 means "No Water Detect" error. It is an indication that you either have no water coming into the washer, or very little water at all. If the pressure switch has not tripped after 6 minutes, the error code is displayed.

You'll need to check for the following--

1- Check the Inlet water valve if it is clogged.
2- Make sure water taps are working fine.
3- Check inlet hoses for kinks or clogs.

Please do rate this solution as FixYa and revert for further assistance.

Thanks

The following link explains the "F20" error code:

http://www.fixya.com/support/r1491905-f20_error_code_whirlpool_duet_kenmore

I recommend checking your washer installation for a possible siphoning condition and kinked fill hoses, first, as these are the easiest items to rule out.

If you have questions, please let me know. I hope this helps you.
