Question about Tricity Bendix Washing Machines

Blocked drain pump

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

SOURCE: tricity bendix BIW103W spins badly, clothes still too wet.

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............................

SOURCE: I have a bosch WFR 2460 washer. Er:15 error code.

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.
Thanks.

My washing maching is reading E20 and it is not washing. it seems to stop after a few minutes of washing and then it will read E20 and just continuosly beep


Hello.

Frigidaire front-loading washing machines have an electronic control panel where the wash cycle and any other wash options are selected, and the wash cycle is initiated and stopped, if necessary. The control panel also has indicator lights that show the washer status and will display an error code if there are issues with the washer. The "E20" error code indicates a possible pump problem.

Blocked Pump

One of the primary reasons why there may be an "E20" error code on a Frigidaire front-loading washing machine is if there is something blocking the pump. Disconnect the washing machine from the power and release the clips on each side to remove the front access panel. Set a container under the pump drain, which is located on the lower right side of the washing machine. Open the pump drain plug and allow it to drain. Clean out any debris that might be causing the obstruction, then close the drain plug. Close the access panel and restore power to the washer.

Drain Hose

If the drain hose is blocked or crimped, the water may not pump out fast enough, causing the pump error to appear on the display. Straighten out the drain hose in the rear of the washing machine and move it away from the washer if it's trapped between the wall and the washing machine.

Oversudsing

If too much detergent--or the wrong kind of detergent--is used in the washing machine, too many suds may result. This can overwhelm the drain and pump system, resulting in the error. Use only high efficiency (HE) laundry detergent with Frigidaire washing machines and follow specific instructions on the laundry container for the recommended amount of detergent. Run a drain cycle if there are excess suds in the washer to clear out the system.

Pressure Switch or Control Boar

The pressure switch may not be communicating properly with the control board, which can cause the E20 error to occur. The other possibility for the E20 error code is if the control board has failed entirely. Try to reset the washing machine by pressing "Stop/Cancel" and disconnecting the washing machine power cord. Wait 30 seconds, then restore power. Make a new cycle selection and press "Start" to see if the error code returns. If it does, turn off the washing machine and contact Frigidaire for repair.

Thanks.

When washer turns on there is a horrible buzzing sound, e 20 error message was on before


This is a blocked drain error code (E20) 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. In addition, replace the drain pump after having found no problem with the drain hose, cleaned the filter, and checked the drain pump impeller but the drain pump just hums, buzzes or whirs.

My Zanussi Jetsystem Timeline washer/dryer starts its wash cycle, but when it comes to draining, it wont drain and flashes E20.


Have you taken the filter out at the front of the washer and cleaned it. Mine wouldn't drain but once I did that it worked ok.

E20 error msg flashing what does this mean?


Sounds like your drain is blocked. You may have access to it through the front at the bottom but If you cant access it from the front You will have to tilt the machine back as far as safely possible to access the bottom of the machine. Locate the drain pump which will be at the bottom font or back corner and remove the hose that connects the pump to the tub, you will need to have a basin ready to catch any water. You most likely have a sock or something stuck. Hope this helps

Washer will not empty water all the way & E20 flashes on the screen. What is the problem?


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

E20 = Problems with water drain in wash phase ALARM CODES E20 Is the drain filter clean; Problems during draining phase (Machine tries to drain for 10 min without emptying the tub) Checks to do: E20 Is the drain pump working? Is the value of the pump about 200Ω? (Measure directly the connector by the board, between J2-2 and J2-7) ; If No Change the pump and run again Clean the filter; Is the draining system OK (drain hose and plumbing where machine is connected) Free and check the draining system; Is the pump blocked? Is there any burn mark on the control board; if yes Change the board E90 = Communication error between user interface and main board. Verify the connector between the main board and user interface board by plugging and unplugging the connector few times on both sides, OR replace the blue ribbon cable. The fault could have been caused by oxidized contacts in user interface plugged in the main board. Kind Regards David Marsh
