Electrolux washer ewf1084 error code e20


Hello - Error code "E20" typically indicates that the water is not draining properly or not pumping out fast enough. Is the washer making a humming noise? If so, either the drain hose may be kinked or the household drain is clogged. Otherwise the unit can be experiencing more serious issues, like a faulty pump or Main Control Board. If I was in your position, I will personally consult a certified technician for a proper diagnosis and to move forward accurately.

Error code e20


Hello leah_mcmunn - the error code E-20 indicates that the water doesn't drain. This could be caused by either the drain hose is kinked or your household drain is clogged. If the drain pump is making a humming noise, check the restriction in the drain line. If not, then you might need to contact a professional to possibly replace the pump.

The machine, based on the error code, is made by Frigidaire for Kenmore. Error code E20 pertains to a slow or no drain problem which can be due to a clogged/kinked drain hose, blocked drain filter/coin trap, or a broken drain pump. The link below provides the detailed troubleshooting procedure of this error code.

Error code E20. This is not listed on the error code chart. What do I do to fix the problem.


E20 means the drain hose is plugged or kinked or the household drains are plugged. YOur washer will not drain and spin until this is fixed.

turn off the washer/unplug it/remove the drain hose and check for a clog. If it is there, clean it out. If not - check your sinks and toilets for slow running drains. The garbage disposal is a good place to start as well. plug the sink, fill it with hot water, then pull the plug and start the disposal. That will help clean the disposal and also show you if you have a drainage problem there. Plunge the toilets, etc.

Good luck to you!

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.

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.11_20_2011_8_57_27_am.jpg
