This is a water intake code, it usually indicates a blockage. To troubleshoot this code, F20 (water inlet problem, no water or insufficient water supply). Select stop twice to cancel the cycle. Disconnect the power supply, (unplug the machine). Check to see that the water faucets are turned completely on, and that you are getting water out of the ends that connect to the washer. Check the screens at the inlet hose connections on the washer. (the inlets, where the hose screws on have small cone shaped screens in them). Make sure the inlet hoses are not kinked. This one is unlikely, but it is in the repair manual so don't laugh, ..Make sure the inlet hoses are not frozen. If all of this is good and you still get the F20 code after conducting the troubleshooting tips, your clog is inside the washer. You will then need to take the front off and clean the filter, (an easy operation). I found a link with pics that shows a homeowner doing this with step by step instructions and I found it to be correct, but funny as all get out. I am going to provide the link so you can laugh about this too. I wish you the best of luck and hope that you find this solution very helpful!

My GE SpaceSaver Washer/dryer will wash, but when it's time to rinse and spin the machine stops. It will not drain, riinse , or spin.


It is possible that the machine does not start off the cycle because there are errors due to feedback from the inputs. For the program to start up the main program controller must initiate the INLET/MOTOR/DRAIN pump/ valve to open up and allow each function to be driven starting from the flow of water into the drum as also the drain valve to open to exit the water at the point of the program cycle. If this does not happen then the voltage at the valve/motor/pump must be checked or the fault relates to no voltage from the controller. This means the controller is a suspect.

I have an Omega CW 675-A washing machine and I have just moved in but the owner did not leave an instruction booklet for the settings. Is this a free service? Can you help me? Paul


Hi

The particular model number is not listed in the list of manuals of omega washing machine.Please call the customer support for assistance.However given bellow are some settings of the washing machine,which is extracted from a website.Hope it helps:-

7 is warm wash delicates (warm cycles then it runs through the number 10 delicate cold cycle too)
10 is cold wash delicates
1 is the longest regular cycle
I normally wash with only the cold tap on, 3 for dirty washes, 4 for regular washes.
Soap goes in the middle slot
3 Buttons from left to right
left - in to spray rinse
middle - in to NOT spin dry
right - in for NOT boost heat (or maybe it has no booster and it is just in for cold wash - not sure)
when standing in front of it, reaching over the back, the left connector is cold and the right connector is for hot water.

Please get back to us if you have further query else please accept the suggestion.
Thank you for contacting fixya.com

This code is tricky to troubleshoot, so jsrock516 advises to eliminate the easy common sense items first.

When washing stops and flashes f20


That code means "No water or Insufficient water supply" Check the water supply valve, the fill hose screen for debris... Good luck let me know if that solved it..

F & P washing machine GW709AU not competing rinse cycle and then beeps and flashes light.


My Whirlpool washing machine is not stopping after completion of wash cycle instead it is repeating the cycle again. It is not consistent, but out of 3 washes 1 wash is happening that way...we are manually stopping machine by gaurding carefully when timer shows nearer to completion.

Bosch classixx 1000 washing machine - stops on spin


Washing machine stops at the spin cycle - light flashes. Have to drain water out manually. Happened last week and was then able to run an empty rinse cycle. Machine worked normally for another week. Same problem today but have had to drain water manually from the drum after trying an empty 90 wash and rinse cycle (both stopped on the Spin and flashed). Any ideas? Thanks. x
