Frigidaire Front Load Washer (E20)

I've heard that to fix E20 and E21 codes, I have to check the "Hose-coin trap-tub to pump" for anything that can be blocking it.
How do you get to that part?
thanks

Where is the coin trap on my frigidaire affinity


Hello Friend, this is Z. That's a great question!

I understand you are seeking the location of the coin trap on your Frigidaire Affinity washer. Typically, the coin trap is located inside the sump to pump hose, inside the cabinet and under the tub. Hope this information helps to some degree! If there is anything else that I can help you with, please feel free to reconnect!

Code e20 showing


This code is pertaining to a blocked drain. Check the drain hose for clogs and kinks then clear it. There is also a filter located inside the big black hose, the tub-to-pump hose, that runs from the bottom of the tub to the drain pump. It can be accessed through the bottom front panel and can be taken out for cleaning.

Remove the screws attaching the bottom front panel then
pull the panel down and off. Prop up the front bottom edge of the washer or cushion and lean it against the wall to access the screws more easily. Loosen the clamp securing the tub-to-hose pump to the bottom of the tub then take the filter out and remove the debris. You should find foreign objects such as coins, toothpicks, hairpins and the likes blocking the filter. Clear the filter from foreign objects and inspect the pump impeller by turning it with your finger. The impeller may be restricted or damaged resulting in the water not pumped out properly. Replace the pump if the impeller is broken or restricted and doesn't turn freely. Reassemble the machine by following the steps above in reverse order.

The top ring of the filter MUST be seated
in the 3rd convolution from the bottom when installing the filter in the coin trap.

My washer not sping out code error is e 21


Hi
Error code e20/e21 means a clogged drain pump. This might have happened due to small clips, pins, coins, etc being stuck in the pump. Please note that error e21 can also occur when the drain pump is not pumping fast enough or when the pump fails. To fix the issue you'll need to check the drain pump.
Remove the 2 screws from the bottom of the front access panel, it will come off. Now check for the pump on the right side and remove hoses from it. Remove pump from machine then remove whatever is there in the pump. Hope this helps... Please post back for any further assistance.

My washer erorrs E20 and stops and does not drain. It will drain slowly if it is on spin cycle without the clothes in it. how can i fix it/


you need to check the drain pump once you have removed all the water. remove all the hoses that go to and from the pump and look for any obstructions.make sure to take the hose off the bottom of the tub and check the coin trap.

E20 message I get on my washer machine


Below is for Whirlpool/Kenmore, u might find it helpful. Some machines have a small trap door on left front bottom, coin trap.

The filter on your pump is probably clogged with lint and stuff. You have to remove the bottom front panel, 3 torx screws underneath. The panel will drop and come off. Drain off the excess water from the drain pipe you see. The white filter cover is right in front. Get yourself a good plastic bag to collect water. Unscrew the filter cover and twist the filter out. Clean out all the stuff and put it back in carefully. Check your pump too, comes after the filter.

On some models the filter is located ‘inside’ the big hose from the bottom of the tub. This takes more time to clean.
