Question about Frigidaire ATF6000ES Front Load Washer
I turn on the washer and nothing happens, then maybe 10 minutes later it beeps then gives me error code E20
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

holla, Im not showing a E20 code on the tech sheet. There is a E21. Water not draining fast enough. Try holding the start/pause and cancel key together for 3 seconds. The door lock, wash, rinse and final spin leds should light. Any error codes should be displayed when holding those keys. If you see a different error code, post it. If not, I would suspect a clogged pump...Catriver.

If you have had a lightning storm or power surge it may have fried the electronics panel. That is what happened to mine. Once it is fixed you should put a surge suppressor on it that is rated for major appliances.

clogged filter will cause this error code. I have the same washer and the filter located inside the rubber boot attached to the pump was full of junk. there was enough room for water to get thru but not enough for full volume. clean it out and it should work. note : its a pain to get the boot back on so be ready and take it slow. this worked for me.

When ours does that it is because of the hard water build up. We have to un-hook the hot water clean out the minerals and it stops doing it.

Tips for a great answer:
Thanks for your inquiry, Barbara Williams!
I understand that the lights on your Frigidaire washer are blinking and beeping. It sounds like your washer is providing a set of error codes. Your control panel may need to be replaced. I would recommend contacting a professional technician for proper diagnosis to be completed to avoid any unnecessary part purchases. Hope this is helpful. -Matt
