New maytag 5000 series is showing f20 error

After using for less than 50 days, my new maytag 5000 series washing mechine started showing the f20 error. the service technician came to my home to look at it, he could not figure out the problem, so he called the maytag technical support and ordered a water senser switch, took 12 days to get the part and he came to my house to replace the part, but it did not work, he was on the phone with maytag service personal again, and after over an hour he ordered a few more parts and left . in short i do not have a washing mechine for 3 weeks now. called maytag it were not helpfull at all. the service was the worst on hold with them over 30 minutes and just ended up with more fustration.

If you look at the front panel of your machine, underneath the front door. You will have to take this panel off and there you will find your drain pump. A lot of times these get filled up with gunk. I found socks and lint in mine. This will cause the machine to show the F20 error. Hope this helped.

You have every right to be frustrated. Maytag is actually one of the best when it comes to reliability so hopefully, once it is fixed you will not have a problem again for a very long time.

I recommend that you file a formal complaint with Maytag. Here is the link to the formal complaint form

Hi, What does a F20 error mean on a maytag 3000 series?


See this page: http://maytag.custhelp.com/app/answers/detail/a_id/2887/~/display-shows-f20-or-fh---front-load-washer

Your washer water valve inlet screens may be dirty / covered with debris and need cleaned. Some hoses have additional screens installed at the faucett connection depending on who did the install process. Low water pressure will also cause this code.

Thanks for choosing FixYa.
