Question about Frigidaire GLTF2940ES Front Load Washer
If the model number is correct, this model washer's drain pump is accessed by removing the lower kick panel directly below the door. There are two screws holding it in place along the bottom front edge.
HINT: You may prop the two front feet of the washer up for better access to the screws (a 2 x 4 works well for this).
With the panel removed, locate the drain pump in the front under the wash tub. To clean out the pump on this type of washing machine, you need to remove the drain hose on the inlet side of the drain pump. This is the large black rubber hose that runs from the wash tub to the pump.
NOTE: Remove the clamp at the pump and clean out any debris in the hose and/or pump impeller. It is much easier to remove the clamp on the pump than it is to remove and reinstall the one on the wash tub.
HINT: If you own a wet/dry shop vac, remove the drain hose from the standpipe at the wall and pull a vacuum on the line to remove all residual water from the wash tub. This will save you from a mess of water to clean up. If you don't own a shop vac, you will need to lay down some towels to catch any residual water that remains in the wash tub and drain line. FYI: Residual water is normal.
If all these steps do not correct your drain problem, you will need to replace your drain pump.
A replacement can be found at pcappliancerepair.com for about $81. Just type in your model number and look under the "Motor/Tub" heading for item F35. Use the drawings provided as well to assist in parts location and assembly.

Tips for a great answer:
Hello John, thanks for your inquiry!
From my understanding your Frigidaire front load washer is displaying an error code of "E20" and you would like to know how to fix it. An "E20" code stands for water is not pumping out fast enough this could be a problem with your drain hose, pump, or control panel. I would suggest checking the drain line to make sure it is not restricted. If the line looks clear it could be a problem with your drain pump or control panel. I would recommend seeking assistance from a professional technician for proper repairs. I hope this information is helpful. -Matt
