My Kenmore Elite HE 5t is showing the F20 code 15-20 seconds into the washing cycle. F20 standing for Water inlet problem. We have cleaned and checked all inlet ports and they are good so what else


Hello Shannon;

My name is Peter. I am a retired field service appliance technician.

Code F20 also stands for pressure switch.

You have a incomplete model number so I am not sure if this is the correct switch.

I have a kenmore elite HE3t and it has an F20 error code. What does this mean?


Hello,

The F20 error code means; no water was detected entering washer or pressure switch trip was not detected after 6 minutes

Many times that is caused by a blockage a pinched fill hose,or the filter screen on back of washer where hoses attach to are clogged

Good luck,i hope this helps

I've seen this complaint 5-6 times within the last month. Try this. Remove the top panel by removing the three screws along the back and pushing the panel back and then lifting up. Locate the pressure sensor mounted on the right side of the machine. Check the pressure sensor hose very carefully for splits or cracks caused by chafing on the tub. You really need to look closely, it only takes a tiny pin hole. If damaged, replace hose and make sure the new hose is routed properly, not taped to the tub as some of the new ones have been for some reason.

My he5t is giving me f25 code. i have pressed stop and tried to drain but i get f25 again. do i need a new belt?


Here is the info on "F25":
f25_code.jpg?t=1177554999
When you open the top of the washer, look at the black rubber hose leading up to the pressure switch. If the hose is kinked, it will fool the pressure switch into thinking the washer is either full of water or it did not see a water level change after the water valves have been on for a period of time. These failures generate the F20 / F25 codes.
To Clear the F25 Fault. Disconnect & Connect the "Water Level Presure" switch plug, a couple of times, Give it a couple of light "Taps" Reconnect again, and see if that works, it should.

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.
