Washing machine did not complete rinse/spin cycle.
Machine is not completing the rinse/spin cycle. An error code of E20 displays. I checked the manual to see what the code meant, followed the solution answer but still no luck. Re-routed the hose that drains to see if it was clogged and it was not. Machine will not work on any cycle
Re: Washing machine did not complete rinse/spin cycle.
We had the same problem, the pump was clogged. First UNPLUG THE WASHER! Tilt the washer back slightly and there are two screws that hold the bottom front panel on. Remove them and pull down on the panel to remove it. To the right you will see the pump. Mine has a large black collector boot coming from the tub. There are three clamps connecting the lines to the boot and on large ring clamp connecting it to the tub assembly. Remove as much of the standing water from the tub as you can. We were able to get ours to drain after a couple of cycles. We also raised ours up on blocks to put a basin under it. It helps to have a shop vac ready incase you have a lot of water. Once you remove the clamps take the black boot out. There is a plastic strainer in the boot.I found a sock, wires and $1.26 in change in mine. Look under and check the pump impeller. Check the drain line to your house sewer standpipe (I sucked it out with the shop vac). I replaced two of the compression clamps with regular radiator clamps, to make the next time easier. Clean and dry the underside, before using. Run a load to check for leaks before replacing the front panel.

Could be several reasons:
- Selected the "Night cycle" program (means standing with the drum full of water, reason: too much noise in the spin cycle)
- Set to the "Rinse hold" (means standing with the drum full of water, reason: wrinkles on the clothes)
According to your description I think that this is not a failure otherwise error E20 will be appears on display.
Once the washing programme has come to an end, END illuminates on the programme progress display.
If RINSE HOLD was selected, the display beside the START/ PAUSE button flashes. 1. After a rinse hold, the water must first be pumped out:
- Either press the START/PAUSE button (the water is pumped out and the washing is spun according to the completed programme;
After the START/PAUSE button is pressed again, the spin speed can still also be changed during spinning), or
- Turn the programme selector to PUMP OUT and press the START/PAUSE button (the water is pumped out without spinning),or
- Turn the programme selector to SPIN or SHORT SPIN and press theSTART/PAUSE button (the water is pumped out and the washing is spun or gently spun).
At the end of this programme step, the END indicator will illuminate. 2. Open the door.
As soon as the DOOR indicator lights up green, the door can be opened.
LF flashes when the water level does not change for a period of time after the valves are turned on OR water has disengaged
the basket but control does not detect a water level change.
Is water supply connected and turned on?
Are hose screens plugged?
Is water entering the tub? If so check pressure hose connection to machine/motor control.

E20 is a fault either in the filter/pump or drain.
The water must be drained thru. the little hose by filter or get machine to back door and undo filter plug and drain onto back step its quicker.With filter out see if any blockages,shine torch up in filter hole turn to spin/drain and see if pump blade spins if not then get long screwdriver and turn blade to free if no joy pump has to come out to free,hopefully this will work and refit plug and check for leaks.Then try again.
First, try to
reset the machine to factory settings first by
setting cycle selector to off position for 5 sec, then to spin for 5 sec,
then back to off for 5 sec, and then to spin. The machine should reset allowing
you to select the drain cycle and get the water out of the machine then
run a spin cycle to clear any remaining water before you unscrew the
filter to clear it.
Next, you need to take the filter out at the front, bottom right, of the machine, empty it of all lint and replace it. It
may have water trapped in so be ready to soak up
excess liquid! Also, make sure when you put it back in you have
tightened it enough to avoid leaking but not too much that you cannot
get it back out.
If this doesn't fix the problem, check your drain pipe hoses to make sure they are not kinked and flush them out.
“Spin” and “Wash” (HT “Rinse” and “Cycle
Complete”) illuminated or “F20” on display
(Water Inlet Problem—no water or insufficient
Select PAUSE/CANCEL twice to cancel the cycle
Unplug washer or disconnect power.
Check the following:
Are water faucets completely turned on?
Are screens at inlet hose connection to washer
clogged? Are water inlet hoses kinked?
Are water inlet hoses frozen?
