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.

Re: Err20

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

It seems to wash, but it stops and beeps displaying an err20. It is not rinsing or spinning. if we remove everything,but one or two articles of clothing it seems to work fine.

Can you hear the water pump out of the machine. It makes a difference on what to check and I don't you to waste time for nothing.

Stops spinning,shows err20

This is a No Water Detect error. It shows that you have no water coming into the washer insufficient water in the machine after a fixed time period. If the pressure switch (water level detector) has not tripped after 6 minutes, the F20 error code is displayed. This can caused by the following:

If there is NO water in the machine then check the following:

Make sure the water supply taps are on and water is actually available.
Check the water inlet hoses for any damage, creasing or kinks.

The main Water Inlet Valve(s) may be clogged. Remove the hose connectors and clean the meshed inlet screens. They may be scaled up and need descaling before placing back in the hose connectors and reconnecting to the machine.

If the IS water filling the machine then check the following:

Make sure there is not a siphoning problem by making sure that the outlet hose is not laying on the floor or the top of it is too low for the machine specification and the outlet hose is clear, not creased or kinked and has no blockage.

Err20 No drainage

remove the hose from the outlet and lay it as flat as poss into a bowl. fill the machine up and see how much water starts to run out. if there is a lot then there may be a blocked outlet instead. the way to attempt to clear a waste hose out without removing it is to buy a flexi unblocker (like a bendywound wire) from a handyman shop and ram it up the hose. tone.
