Question about Frigidaire GLTR1670A Front Load Washer

1 Answer

Err20 When it is set to "normal" wash, or any type of wash, after about 18 min. an ERR20 comes up. I have tried to push start and it continues with 30 min. but it doesn't do anything. The clothes are still very wet and water is still on the bottom. I even tried putting it on the rinse/spin cycle or the "final spin" and it worked a couple of times but now it seems to not be working. So essentially, it washes the clothes and rinses but doesn't drain or spin and ERR20 still comes up and it stops the whole process. We usually use liquid soap but recently used powder a few times and it seems like that's when the problem started. I looked on the frigidaire website and did what they said for oversudsing but it seems to not be making a difference.

Hard to find what the ERR20 fault is. Sounds like something is stopping the pump. Are you using HE rated detergent? Sometimes you get a sud's lock on the pump, or something jamming or blocking the pump. If it wasnt HE detergent, it may have locked the pump down. Let me know how it turns out. Good Luck!!! Jim

Ge adora washing machine beeps when pushing start with door closed

Hit the power button until there is NO display . Unplug and wait a minimum of 30 seconds , plug back in and within 30 seconds hit SIGNAL button then DELAY START button then SIGNAL button again then DELAY START button again. door should lock and display t01 It is now in test mode . There are 14 different test it can run through in this mode , but all we are trying to do is check for error codes now and maybe get you back to normal, So turn the knob one click clockwise and hit the START/PAUSE button and see if any error codes come up. To exit the diagnostic mode - hit signal button then delay start button then signal button then delay start button and you are out of service test mode and back to normal. Post any error codes.

Hotpoint BC1450 Light 2 normal flashes

Flashing lights, pump running even when turned off. Had to switch off at the socket. The vibration from the machine had managed to give a quarter turn to the appliance gate valve, the type with the little blue handle. I could see the indentation in the rear rubber panel on the back of the dishwasher. Unscrewed the little blue handle, pushed the machine back in and started working as normal. :)

I have not heard of or seen this dishwasher but I do know on a lot of dishwashers if the water is not hot enough it will heat the water and the heating light will come on to let you know. On most models if the washer has to heat the water it will prolong the wash time. It may do this through out the wash and rince cycles. dont be surprized if your dishwasher runs 90 min or longer. This is normal for most all dishwashers now. I would read the owners guide and get to know whats normal for your unit.
