Question about Tricity Bendix Washing Machines
I have the Tricity Bendix WDR1242W washer/dryer which has the E20 error code. I've drained the pump and taken out a few buttons that were in there but the next wash has produced the same error. I can't see anything else blocking - what should I do!?
Get a air compressor at the drain end and blow air up the hose to try unblock what ever could be over the sensor. OR get your garden hose and force water the other way to try unblock

SOURCE: F02 Error Code on Kenmore
Hello, welcome to FixYa.
Based on your information posted I understand you have the Kenmore HE3t washer, correct ?
Reading your description and factoring in all you've done and inspected, it may in fact be a faulty pump...(the F02 ultimate worse case) even if it is draining slowly it does not rule it out, trust me I've seen many of them.
By reading your post I've gathered you are pretty thorough so I don't expect you missed it, but I must mention it or I wouldn't be thorough either, I think you can appreciate that, have you checked the back-flow/check ball ?
If not, here's how...
Pull the boot off if you have not and just see if anything has got in there to obstruct the "ball" from working correctly. It is shown here...(this is from the back, but you can do it from the front...just not as easily...in my opinion)
Undo the clamp and inspect inside...if you have not already.
It's amazing how often I find this ball "stuck" or the bellows clogged with debris of all sorts of items...definately worth looking into before declaring the pump has failed. Good luck. Let me know how you make out as I said and if I can help you in any manner going forward I will do whatever I can.
I've also included a more thorough link of my repair tip below

Hi, Your problem is very common and very easy to fix. You will first need to strip the machine down and remove the motor. Once you have done this then take off the motor carbon brushes, These are the little things in cases on the side of the motor casing. These should be at least 1" long! you will find that this is not the case and they will need replacing to resolve your problem. The parts should not cost anymore than around £20 for the pair.
Good luck any problems get beck to me............................

You need to check and clean pump filter, normally located behind a removeable plastic cover at bottom front of washer right hand side.
If no filter found there remove rear panel of washer, and clean pump from rear of washer.
Please rate my solution.
