Question about Frigidaire ATF6000ES Front Load Washer
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!

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

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.
