    The washer continue to show error code 20. Also, the water will not drain out of the machine, even if you put it on drain/spin cycle..

    It starts washing then have way through the cycle it stops and says Error 20, and shuts down with water still in the bottom.. what do i do to fix this problem.

    I have exactly the same problem. BUT I caused it by washing a rubber-backed rug that fell apart and is plugging up the works. Have not been able to find anyone to work on it but did find a solution - use garden hose w/spray to spray top of drum, while manually turning it, to wash debris to bottom so it drains out.

    hope this helps someone

    ps haven't tried above yet but will right now :)

    It won't finish cycle. It stops on E20, and the water sits in the bottom. It ALWAYS seems to stop in the wash cycle.

E20 is not an exact error code. It's indicating a possible pump out problem. Here is a few possible causes of an E20 error code:

1. Restriction in the drain pump

2. Failed pump

3. Water not pumping out fast enough (crimped drain hose)

4. Too many suds ( too much detergent or wrong kind)

5. Pressure switch (not communicating with control board)

6. Loose wire at pressure switch

7. Loose wire at pump or control board

8. Failed control board

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.

I fixed mine by uncloging the drain cup in the black hose that hooks up to the water pump

Error code 20 on an affinity frigidaire


Hello - The error code "E20" typically means the water is not draining properly or not pumping out fast enough. Does the washer making a humming noise? If so, either the drain hose may be kinked or the drain in the house is clogged. Once you have confirmed and cleaned the hose and issue continues contact a professional to move forward accurately. The unit may possibly have a faulty pump or control board.

Error E20 means the machine has failed to pump out. 1st check the filter at the bottom right hand side there may still be water inside if so pull the grey tab to the left of the filter there should be a thin hose extend it put it into a shallow dish and pull the cap off to let the water drain this may be a slow process. When the filters out look into the hole with a torch to see if any obstructions in the pump impeller this looks like a cross. If the filters and pump are clear it may be the pump has failed.

Check water "forreign object trap". It's under the lid at the bottom of the machine. First drain water by pulling out the hose and pull out the plug. Then unscrew the trap. Have had this E20 error twice. First it was two coins there, next it was a big paperclip. Have worked fine ever since.11_20_2011_8_57_27_am.jpg
