OK, first thing is to check the drain hose for restrictions. If there are no restrictions in the drainage assembly, the next test will be on the drain pump itself.

Start the washer and check for 120 VAC at the
drain pump. If the pump reads 0 vac, replace the control. If the Pump reads 120 VAC, Remove the pump and check for blockage. If blocked, remove the restriction, if not, replace the pump

Plug off the mains. First drain out all your water by lowering the exit hose into a bucket or drain. You have to look for screws below the front kick-panel, the panel comes down & out. The pump is on the right side. Be prepared for dirty water. Inside the big flexible tube (coming from the tub bottom) is the filter, be prepared to find all sorts of junk here, clean out. Examine your pump also, clean out the impeller. Carefully refit all. Your machine would be fine. Don’t wait for the machine to jam to look into your filter.

E20 Error


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

I have a Kenmore Elite washer, model 44092. The machine won't spin and the error code is E20. What is wrong with it?


The machine, based on the error code, is made by Frigidaire for Kenmore. Error code E20 pertains to a slow or no drain problem 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.

AEG oko Diplomat E Update frontloader. Error message blinks E20. What should I do?


Error code E20 indicates that water cannot be pumped out of the machine. Possible causes:
  1. Sieve filter is blocked. Open the sieve lid, (lower right of machine) and clean.
  2. Drain tube bent or blocked. Check for bends and straighten the tube, open hose band clips and check inside for objects or dirt.
  3. Some small object (coin, children's toy, ...) blocks the drain pump. Pump needs to be dismantled and cleaned.
#1 and #2 you should be able to do yourself. With a little aptitude for repairs, you can do the fix #3 yourself, too. If you don't trust yourself to get all parts back together, let a service technician do the repair for you.

E20 message want spin


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 error on Kenmore front loader. The water is


E20 is an error code for drainage failure.



Check where the appliance drain hose connects to the house drains for a blockage.

If it's onto a spigot under the sink, take them off and check both for a blockage.

If these are ok then it's likely to be a blockage in the pump.



You'll need to drain the water out manually.

Put a shallow dish below the filter and slacken the filter.

Tighten it to stop the flow of water while you empty the dish.

Once empty, take the filter out, clean out the debris and ensure nothing is left jamming the pump.

Before refitting the filter, put the machine on drain or spin and listen at the filter housing to see if you can hear the pump running.

If you do, fit the filter and try the machine again.

E20 ERROR


It doesn't spin because it has to drain first. E20 means not draining. You'll very likely have something caught in your drain pump. If you take the two screw off at the front, very bottom of you washer you'll be able to pull down the small panel to reveal the drain pump at the right corner. if you empty all the water from your machine you can take off the spring clamp attaching the thick rubber hose from your tub to your drain pump. ( you may want to have some old towels ready ) With this off you can feel around for what's blocking the drain pump's impeller. You may want to take the screws out that secure the drain pump to the base and the other spring clamp that attaches the drain hose to the drain pump. Good luck!
