No water filling the washer or the pressure switch is not activating.Check your screens in your water valve for dirt. Make sure the washer is not siphoning water out of the tub as it is filling.

SOURCE: Error Code F20 blinking


I had to take the bottom panel off. There you will find a black squishy like filter. I unscrewed the the screw that holds it tight.
Be prepared for lots of water and suds, the water drains out quickly. I pulled out a wire from my daughrter's bra, that was plugging the filter. Re-attached everything, now it is working just fine. Happy in Maple Ridge.

My Kenmore Elite HE 5t is showing the F20 code 15-20 seconds into the washing cycle. F20 standing for Water inlet problem. We have cleaned and checked all inlet ports and they are good so what else

Hello Shannon;

My name is Peter. I am a retired field service appliance technician.

Code F20 also stands for pressure switch.

You have a incomplete model number so I am not sure if this is the correct switch.

F20 or F21

"F20" is a No Water Detect error, while "F21" is a Long Drain error. The following links explain:

You may have more than one problem, so read through all information thoroughly. The one problem, however, that is common to both error codes, is the drain pump. It could be that you have something obstructing the pump or the drain lines, causing both error codes to be generated. This may be a good place to start.

NOTE: If after cleaning the drain pump it is not running, or if it does not pump at the proper volume, the manufacturer recommends replacing the pump. Reliable sources to purchase a replacement include and Just use your model number for your search criteria.

If you have any questions, please let me know. I hope this helps you.
