Question about Washing Machines
There isn't a filter on this model Frigidaire washing machine. If you are referring to poor drainage issues, you need to access and clean out the drain pump. This is a simple process. Just follow these steps:
1. Unplug washer.
2. Locate and remove the screws that hold the toe panel in place directly below the washer door.
3. With the panel removed, locate the drain pump. It is located directly below the washer tub near the front of the washer.
4. Remove the large rubber hose from the inlet side of the pump (Its much easier to remove this fitting rather than removing the end of the hose that is connected to the wash tub).
5. Inspect the rubber hose for debris and inspect the impeller area of the drain pump. It is common for small articles of clothing to get lodged in the hose and restrict the drainage. It is also common for small items such as buttons, toothpicks, hair braids, etc. to get lodged in the impeller.
6. Next, remove the discharge hose on the right hand side of the pump and also check this area for debris. Clean the hoses and pump impeller thoroughly and re-install everything.
NOTE: You may want to drain any residual water remaining in the wash tub and drain lines PRIOR to removing any drain hoses. An easy method is to use a wet/dry shop vac and pull a vacuum on the drain hose. This will pull any water remaining in the washer and avoid any messy cleanups. If you do not own a shop vac, be prepared by lying down some towels to collect any water.
NOTE: It does not take much to damage these small drain pumps. If the preliminary steps do not solve your problem, you may have to replace the drain pump. The part number (if needed) is 137108100. Pcappliancerepair.com carries it for about $81.
If you are talking about poor filling issues, this may be an indication of a water inlet valve that has become clogged. Your inlet valve also includes the dispenser assembly. It can be accessed by removing the to panel of the washer and locating where the fill hoses are attached. The sediment screens in the valve can become clogged from sediment and rust over time. You can clean the fill ports by turning off the water supply and removing the fill hoses. Check the sediment screens inside the inlet valve and/or the fill hoses and clean with distilled vinegar to remove any sediment build up. If cleaning the valve does not solve the problem, a replacement part number is 134371220.
If you have any questions about these procedures, please let me know. I hope this helps you.

Tips for a great answer:
Hello - The error code "E20" typically means the water is not draining properly or not pumping out fast enough. Does the washer making a humming noise? If so, either the drain hose may be kinked or the drain in the house is clogged. Once you have confirmed and cleaned the hose and issue continues contact a professional to move forward accurately. The unit may possibly have a faulty pump or control board.
