Question about Frigidaire FTF530FS Front Load Washer

2 Answers

Error codes My washer dryer keeps coming up with e20 error code during the cycle of washing or drying i can't find a manual with the error codes, i have cleaned the filter so i know it can't be fluff. I would appreciate any suggestions or the error codes. Thanks Mostly getting e20, but every once in awhile e70. Seems to be using only hot water, having trouble draining...water does not spin out so clothes are sopping wet. We have an old house and husband tried to make sure pipe was not clogged because disposal was dumping waste I guess where the washer drains, but now the washer refuses to finish. You can open the door when e20 appears, but it shows up as the error again every 5 to 10 minutes it seems. Have not found a clog or kink in the hose yet, etc. What can I do...don't want to get a repair person when I think my washer is fine just trying to tell me what needs to be changed.

I suggest you snake out the drain into which the machine waste hose goes, the standpipe that is. The drain could be blocked somewhere causing pressure problems which is conveyed to the machine. Be sure to replace the machine exit hose at about 3 feet from ground level, and dont shove it too much into the standpipe. Do not block up the point where the machine hose goes into the standpipe, it shouldn't be air tight.

Error code E20 on a AEG washer dryer


Ok if its only bring the E20 up on the drying side then this will be a blocked dryer condenser chamber.

To get at this you need to take the back half of the washer off and from there you will see a big plastic chamber going from the bottom up to the top.

Take this chamber off and give it a good clean out with a hose pipe.

Once this is clear refit it and the dryer should be back to normal from there.

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.

if this is a fridgidaire washer, I guess it's a clogged coin catcher. You have remove the front access panel and clean it out. I am working on that now.

E20 message


Hi Helenw,
The error message E20, simply means the filter plastic cage which is located behind the trap door bottom right side of the machine is full and needs to be cleaned out.
All the fibres and lint gets trapped in here and prevents the waste water from escaping, hence Error code E20.

Regards,
David

"CD" ERROR ON LG WM-3677HW Front Load All-in-One Washer / Dryer


CD means cool down, press the pause start button, the door lock will open. It is an anti crease cycle. It mentions it in the owners manual, but it is hidden deep in the drying section.

Error code 20


Hi, I also got the error code E20 when the filter became totally blocked during the washing cycle (due to a pair of my son's old work jeans!). Once I cleaned out the filter everything worked ok again. Put a large bowl under the filter as you unscrew it; a fair amount of water could be there. Regards, John
