Machine had been giving E20 error code - filter cleared and it re-started ok. When wash was in progress - jammed at rinse stage and all lights came on (except spin speeds) and humming noise and nothing...


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.

My washer is not working it begins to spin stops and has the letters LE appearing.


Hi,

This a common problem for all front loaders. Your washer will not drain or work 'cause your outlet filter is clogged or an unusually heavy load. The small door is on the left side front bottom of your washer. Remove the door with a putty knife or thin butter knife inserted in the middle top of the access panel door. Drain the water from the filter housing by pulling the tube out of the clip and unplugging, allow it to run into a bucket while the machine is in spin only mode. This mode is acheived when the washer is first powered on press the spin button until no spin is reached then run. Run in this mode until no water is draining from the tube in the bucket. Keep the tube as low as possible. When water has stopped coming out of the tube turn off the washer and unplug from the wall. This step is important because this resets the fault. Expect some water to come out when you open the filter housing by turning counterclockwise until you can pull the filter from its housing. Clean out your filter, return to housing turning clockwise until seated and recap the tube and place in the holder, refit the cover and plug back into the wall. Fixed. You may also need to lighten the load a bit but I always try full on load anyways. If it fails again just lighten, unplug wait >1 minute then replug and run.

Goodluck..

Zanussi 1400 Front Loader: Machine washs clothes as per normal but does not drain the water and cannot go into the spin cycle. Sits there doing nothing then starts bleeping.


This is almost certainly a simple problem with your empty pump filter being clogged. The empty cycle is timed and if it can't get all the water out in time because the filter is blocked and slowing the empty down, then it will fail safe and won't step on to the final spin cycle with excess water in the drum. While it's trying to get the water evacuated, you will probably see the machine doing a slow tumble for up to 8 minutes and you may also hear the empty pump running too.

You need to locate and clean the filter. Depending on the model (You haven

You need to locate and clean the filter. Unfortunately, on this model, it's in a horrible place!


Rather than try to describe it, if you go to the Sears Parts direct site and look at the diagram for the motor and tub at this web address:

http://www.searspartsdirect.com/partsdirect/part-model/Frigidaire-Parts/Washer-Parts/Model-LTF2140FS2/1428/0153200/R0906023/00003

You will see a diagram of the drum and associated parts. You can zoom in on the diagram. In the bottom right section of the diagram, you will see part number 41, the filter housing ad part number 40, the filter its self. You will need to:
Remove the clip (No. 48) that holds the housing to the empty pump
Remove the clip (also No.48) that holds the air chamber to the housing
Remove the clip (No. 42) that holds the housing to the drum

You should now be able to remove the filter housing and filter. Strip and clean it before reassembly.

If the above doesn't get you where you need to be, please come back to me with a comment and I will provide further assistance

Hi I have a Bosch WSL1662 Maxx washing machine. The spin cycle does not work properly. What could the possible cause be. I have cleaned the outlet of the washing machine and the problem is still...


Probably a blocked empty pump filter. Spin won't kick in until all the water is evacuated. If there is a little left, the machine will do the slow turn cycle that it does just before spin starts but not start the spin cycle because of the water in the drum.

You need to locate the filter and clean it. That should fix your problem. Once this is done, remember to keep the filter clean every few months

Perhaps you need to check the outlet hose from the pump for a blockage, and of course, make sure the pump itself is working.

Starts then stops and won't re-start


Plug off the wall first. Check your outlet filters, clean out. It is located right in front bottom right of machine. Push one side of the small door. The machine will not spin if the filter is blocked. Refit carefully. If you have manual, check for filter cleaning. While you are at it check your pump area too. Position machine switch to "off" position. Re-start........

Possible your outlet filter is blocked. After disconnecting electrical input from wall socket, remove the back panel of washer to see if the pipe from the tub is blocked, clear, also check the outlet filter, clean. If u have the users' manual check how to clean your outlet filter
