    I have the same error code E20. There is no E20 in my manual, but it will not finish spinning, the clothes are wet, there is still water in the bottom and the door will NOT unlock so I can retrieve them. Tried the unplugging thing, and still nothing. After fooling around with the Options/Pause buttons I finally got it to unlock. Anyone have a clue what is going on????

The last time I had this error code it was the door latch mechanism. I am not sure what it is now. I regret buying this washer.

E59 code means you need a new circuit board and Frigidaire knows it's a problem, but will only step up to repair if you demand it. we're on our second circuit board in 2 years!

How do you fix e20 code

Hello John, thanks for your inquiry!

From my understanding your Frigidaire front load washer is displaying an error code of "E20" and you would like to know how to fix it. An "E20" code stands for water is not pumping out fast enough this could be a problem with your drain hose, pump, or control panel. I would suggest checking the drain line to make sure it is not restricted. If the line looks clear it could be a problem with your drain pump or control panel. I would recommend seeking assistance from a professional technician for proper repairs. I hope this information is helpful. -Matt

Hello Diane Snow, thank you for your inquiry!

I understand that your Frigidaire washer is displaying "E20" error code. The "E20" error code means water is not pumping out fast enough. First, you want to check the hoses for restrictions.

If the hoses are not restricted it could be an issue with the drain pump or control board. I would suggest seeking assistance from a professional technician for proper repair. I hope this is helpful. -Matt

What does the error message E20 on the frigidaire front load washer GLTF2940FS mean?

Hello - The error code "E20" typically means the water is not draining properly or not pumping out fast enough. Does the washer making a humming noise? If so, either the drain hose may be kinked or the drain in the house is clogged. Once you have confirmed and cleaned the hose and issue continues contact a professional to move forward accurately. The unit may possibly have a faulty pump or control board.

What does e20 mean? The display shows an error of e20. Looks like the water is not pumping out during the regular wash.


Error code e20 means a clogged drain pump. This might have happenned due to small clips, pins, coins, etc being stuck in the pump. Please note that error e20 can also occur when the drain pump is not pumping fast enough or when the pump fails. To fix the issue you'll need to check the drain pump.
Remove the 2 screws from the bottom of the front access panel, it will come off. Now check for the pump on the right side and remove hoses from it. Remove pump from machine then remove whatever is there in the pump.

Please post back for any further assistance.

Your washer is not draining properly. You need to check if the drain hose is kinked and also whether the household drain is running smoothly.
