Frigidaire Front loading washer error codes E41 and E20
I wash doing was and the machine first gave me the error code of E20 and their was water in the bottom of the basin. We cleaned out the water lines but still could not get the washer to start. It just sounds like the gears or something is not catching to spin the washer. I unplugged the washer and then try to start it again but this time I got the error code of E41. Can any one help with this? I have the E20 code too..

Re: Frigidaire Front loading washer error codes E41 and...
E20 is a drainage error. If there is water in the drum make sure the discharge pipe at the back of the machine is not kinked or blocked. You should also check the pump filter is not clogged - this is behind the front panel underneath the drum at the front of the machine.
E41 = Control board thinks the door switch is open. This points towards a faulty door switch on the machine.
Hope this helps. Please remember to rate my answer. Many thanks.

E-20 code means "water did not drain from washer". Check hoses first, make sure they are not blocked. Then, check the little "trap" that catches stuff before it goes through the water pump; this is done by opening up the lower front panel of the washer (two philips screws at base/front let you open panel). Use a large plier to remove large hose clamps from the rubber diaphragm just before the pump, stuff gets stuck in here blocking the pump. socks, small bits of clothing, loose change, etc can get in this diaphragm. If this part is not clogged and you still cant solve the problem, make sure you SNAKE THE ENTIRE DRAIN HOSE, you would not beleive what the water discharge pump will process and then stuff gets stuck in the hose. I had to remove the drain hose from the machine and found a small metal part in the hose (junk...) that was collecting lint and thus making the hose flow slowly. Very hard to find. Cannot beleive the pump would **** up a metal part (a razor blade from a utility knife) but it did, and it clogged the hose where the hose exits the back of the washer.

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 see your question is labeled under Frigidaire washer, ATF6000ES, and your washer is receiving an error code of "E20". "E20" stands for the water is not pumping out fast enough which means it could be an issue with your control panel or drain pump. I would recommend having a professional come out and properly repair your appliance. I hope this is helpful. -Matt
Frigidaire front-loading washing machines have an electronic control panel where the wash cycle and any other wash options are selected, and the wash cycle is initiated and stopped, if necessary. The control panel also has indicator lights that show the washer status and will display an error code if there are issues with the washer. The "E20" error code indicates a possible pump problem.
One of the primary reasons why there may be an "E20" error code on a Frigidaire front-loading washing machine is if there is something blocking the pump. Disconnect the washing machine from the power and release the clips on each side to remove the front access panel. Set a container under the pump drain, which is located on the lower right side of the washing machine. Open the pump drain plug and allow it to drain. Clean out any debris that might be causing the obstruction, then close the drain plug. Close the access panel and restore power to the washer.
If the drain hose is blocked or crimped, the water may not pump out fast enough, causing the pump error to appear on the display. Straighten out the drain hose in the rear of the washing machine and move it away from the washer if it's trapped between the wall and the washing machine.
If too much detergent--or the wrong kind of detergent--is used in the washing machine, too many suds may result. This can overwhelm the drain and pump system, resulting in the error. Use only high efficiency (HE) laundry detergent with Frigidaire washing machines and follow specific instructions on the laundry container for the recommended amount of detergent. Run a drain cycle if there are excess suds in the washer to clear out the system.
Pressure Switch or Control Boar
The pressure switch may not be communicating properly with the control board, which can cause the E20 error to occur. The other possibility for the E20 error code is if the control board has failed entirely. Try to reset the washing machine by pressing "Stop/Cancel" and disconnecting the washing machine power cord. Wait 30 seconds, then restore power. Make a new cycle selection and press "Start" to see if the error code returns. If it does, turn off the washing machine and contact Frigidaire for repair.
Hello, welcome to FixYa.
I understand you have a Frigidaire washer with an error code E41, correct ? Can you reply and include the complete model number ? This will let me speak specifically about your washer instead of generalizing...which can be fine, but specifics are always better.
I'll watch for your reply and go from there. Thank you.
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.
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.
If your machine is stuck on the drain sequence or you read error code E20, the filter basket is probably clogged: You will need a pair of slip-joint pliers and a Phillips head screwdriver. Before beginning any work, make sure to unplug the machine from the electrical outlet. **Note:It may be easier to perform this task with the washer lying on its side; therefore it may be necessary to disconnect the water lines from the machine. 1: Take off the front kick plate (two screws at the bottom of the machine). 3:There is a black accordion hose with two clamps. 2: Have a towel ready to catch the water that leaks. 4:Remove the clamps at each end to access the filter basket. 5:Stick your hand inside the hose and remove the plastic filter basket (it will probably be clogged with hair, lint, fabric). 6:Thoroughly clean the filter basket and remove all debris from the inside of the black accordion hose. 7:Replace the filter basket. 8:Reattach the black accordion hose at both ends. 9:Secure the clamps at each end of the hose. 10:Wipe up any water that may have spilled inside the machine. 11:Reattach the front kick plate with the two screws removed earlier. 12:Reconnect all hoses before plugging in the machine to the electrical outlet. ** This took me about 30 minutes from start to finish.
