I think I figured this one out. I think it means that the washer is not able to drain, therefore it won't spin either. Underneath the washer is a series of outlet hoses and within one of them is a filter. When I finally found the filter it was clogged up with lint, fibers from a pillow and coins. You have to dig the filter out and then clean the filter and rehook up the hoses, this was relatively simple even for me. The washer works perfectly now.
My washer was giving me the e20 code and when I had a repair man come out all he did was adjust the hose in the back of washer by sticking the end down in the drain and MAKE SURE the excess hose sticks up higher than the washing machine.
This causes a suction that will drain water out of washer. You might have to get creative like hold it up with broom handle something. Its the HOSE! I

I see your question is labeled under Frigidaire washer, ATF6000ES, and your washer is receiving an error code of "E20". "E20" stands for the water is not pumping out fast enough which means it could be an issue with your control panel or drain pump. I would recommend having a professional come out and properly repair your appliance. I hope this is helpful. -Matt
Error code E20 is often not included on the list of error codes for this washing machine. The error E20 means that the coin trap/drainage hose needs cleaned out. The coin trap is underneath the machine on the right hand side.There is a plate that covers the bottom of the machine, yet it most likely will have an access hole in it. The coin trap is usually black and a somewhat accordian shaped looking hose. To begin UNPLUG the machine . Then use old towels to soak up excess water that is still inside the drum. Next if the washer sets ontop a pedestal drawer seperate them by unscewing the screws in the back and under the front of the machine. Now tip the machine onto its back making sure that it is safe and will not fall while you are working on it. Look at the bottom of the machine and you will see an access hole. looking through that hole with a flashlight you will see to the right a black hose with a slight accordian look to it. At the top of that hose is a screw .This screw is connected to a wire type cable which goes around the hose, and that is what when tightened keeps the hose from coming loose from the drum. Loosen the screw and pull the coin trap hose away from the drum enough to squeeze your hand into the hose. Now clean out the hose as far as you can reach into it. Take your time and get as much gunk out as you can.Unless you desire to redo these steps in a month or so! When done place the hose back where it was and retighten the screw cable combo.Make sure it is tight and in the correct place;if not the machine will leak water onto the floor while in use. After this then you may set the machine back up correctly and reattach the washer to the pedestal.
Take preventive measures and all ways check pockets before washing items!
You are experiencing a pump issue. Typically a professional is needed to :
1. Check the drain hose for restrictions. Restriction, correctproblem. No restriction, go to step (2).2. Start the washer and checkfor 120VAC at the drain pump.Zero, replace the Main Control Board. 120VAC, remove the pump and checkit for blockage. If blocked, remove the restriction, if not, replace the pump.
If this machine is like other of its type then you may find the manual taped to the inside of the machine near the bottom side panel. open the bottom access panel (3 screws on bottom front lip) and look for it as it will have the codes. near where the filter is . while you were down there cleaning the filter did you check that the pump impellers move freely and were not clogged with any debris.
Check water "forreign object trap". It's under the lid at the bottom of the machine. First drain water by pulling out the hose and pull out the plug. Then unscrew the trap. Have had this E20 error twice. First it was two coins there, next it was a big paperclip. Have worked fine ever since.
