Frigidaire Affinity Washer won't spin- E20

I was reading one of your posts regarding the E20 fault code. The only problem I am having is accessing the pump since I do not have a lower front panel that comes off. I am not able to remove the screw from the rear panel. Since I have the dryer stacked on top of the washer I am not able to turn it on its side to access from bottom. Is there another way to repair this fault code? Also, how do I remove the clamps? Thanks in advance for your assistance.

E20 = Clogged drain pump.

Tools I used: vice grips, both phillips and standard screw drivers, flash light and an 8mm socket with ratchet.

I solved this problem by removing the rear oval type cover by removing the 6 phillips screws that hold it on, but first thing is to unplug the machine! I unplugged the electrical connection going to the pump. Then I removed the hose closest to me by removing the pinch clamp with a pair of vice grips. Then I removed the two screws holding the pump down to the frame of the washer (8mm socket). Then I removed the farthest hose by removing the pinch clamp with the vice grips. Once this was done I took out the pump. The hose entering the pump contained a sock, debit card and thirty-five cents!

Once I removed all of the debris I reversed the order but this time I used an automotive hose clamp which makes re-assemble waaay easier!!! (Saves about 30 mins) Total repair time took me 1 hour, but if you use an aftermarket hose clamp instead of the pinch clamp on the hose coming into the pump this will save you at least 30 minutes because it is soo difficult to put back on because of the tight space.

One-hour, a minor cut and $2.35 for the clamps later all is fixed!

What do i do when my washer affinity frigidaire displays E20


Hello friend, thank you for your post!

I see your question is labeled under Frigidaire washer, ATF6000ES, and your washer is receiving an error code of "E20". "E20" stands for the water is not pumping out fast enough which means it could be an issue with your control panel or drain pump. I would recommend having a professional come out and properly repair your appliance. I hope this is helpful. -Matt

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.

I have a Kenmore Elite washer, model 44092. The machine won't spin and the error code is E20. What is wrong with it?


The machine, based on the error code, is made by Frigidaire for Kenmore. Error code E20 pertains to a slow or no drain problem which can be due to a clogged/kinked drain hose, blocked drain filter/coin trap, or a broken drain pump. The link below provides the detailed troubleshooting procedure of this error code.

Wont spin, wont drain has codes


Frigidaire, Zanussi, AEG, & More....

EFO = Filter Blocked (low flow) and it is accessible from the bottom front of the machine.

1. there is a blockage in the filter or drain hose.takes too long to drain out.
2. over dosing of powder or liquid. again can cause an air lock in the pump which slows the drain pump down.

Check the filter and drain hose and test again. this fault will only come up at the end of a cycle.
You do not need to reset the machine to get rid of the fault code as this is automatically deleted.

Run an empty load with no detergent in an attempt to get rid of the code.

My washer will not spin and posts E20 error


E20 means that there is a clog somewhere in the drain line. Check the hose, check the check valve at the pump, make sure nothing is clogged or stuck. It should not take you that long to find the problem.
