The most common cause of an E20 error code would be a clogged or damaged drain pump. Other possible issues would be a loose wire to you pressure switch, loose wire at your control board, loose wire at your drian pump, or failed control board. This is not a specific error but from my experience the most likely cause of this issue would be a bad drain pump. Something is clogging the pump or the motor is bad.

hope this helps _MJ_

Stops in cycle, not sure if its when rinsing? I notice it stops and an error code of OE ?


This error code OE means the tub is not fully drained 10 minutes after the drain pump is turned on.This is possibly due to a clogged/kinked drain hose or the drain filter is blocked. Make sure the drain hose is clear then open the filter door located at the bottom left front of the machine. Drain the remaining water from the tub through the emergency drain hose located in the filter door area. Once completely drained, turn the knob counterclockwise then pull out and clean the filter. Reach in the pump impeller area and turn it with your finger. Replace the drain pump if the filter is clear and the impeller is broken or restricted and cannot be freed.

Tip

Washing machine showing F4 on display.


<span>Hi.<br /><br />This tip applies to Whirlpool built washer, including Kenmore and other brands.<br /><br />F4 means that the problem is caused by a defective pressure switch. The problem is often coming with troubles in the spin part of the cycle.<br /><br />The following is an extract from the washer service manual:<br /><br />"F4" flashes and the cycle signal beeps when the recirculate pressure<br />switch is not working properly during the Catalyst, W ash or Soak cycle.<br />If "F4" is flashing, check the following:<br />- Plugged recirculate hose (black hose).<br />- Plugged or disconnected air tube (clear tube).<br />- Wires to the recirculate pressure switch disconnected or not<br />connected correctly.<br />- Failed recirculate pressure switch. Switch (black wire, tan wire)<br />contacts should be open with pressure applied and closed with<br />no pressure.<br /><br /><br />Try disconnecting power by tripping the circuit breaker or disconnecting power cord for five minutes. If that does not clear the error check the thin clear rubber hose connected to the pressure switch and extending into the tub. Try blowing into pressure hose and clean it. If that does not fix the problem replace the pressure switch.<br /><br /><a href="http://www.searspartsdirect.com/partsdirect/index.action">To locate parts and diagrams, please enter the full model number, as witten in service tag, in this website.</a><br /><br />Regards.<br /><br />Ginko.</span>

Washing machine Airturbo stops at 17 minutes and 7 minutes and error code SE appears. what is to be done washing nachine is one year old only


  1. Open the filter-cover near the bottom of the machine. Unscrew emergency drain cap by turning it to the left and drain off all the water. Unscrew the filter cap and take it out. Wash any dirt or other material from the filter. Make sure the drain pump propeller behind the filter is not blocked. Replace the filter cap. Replace the filter-cover.
  2. The Water Drain error can be cleared by turning POWER SW OFF and back ON.
  3. If the water only trickles out of the draining hose, pause the washer and blow air down the hose, you should hear the water inside the unit bubble a few times. If you don't hear bubbles, the hose is still blocked.
  4. Drain the load, empty the washer of clothes and try running a rinse & spin cycle. You should repeat this until the water runs clear from the drain hose.
  5. If the machine still fails to drain, you may need to replace your Drain pump.

The washer is flashing F2. It will not go thru an entire wash cycle without having to be paused and then restarted at what ever time is left in the cycle.


do this...

"F/02" Long Drain
If the drain time exceeds 8 minutes, the water valves are turned off and "F/02" is flashed.
NOTE: After 4 minutes the "Sud" error will be displayed, then 4 minutes later the F02 error code will be displayed.
Press PAUSE/CANCEL twice to clear the display.
  • Check the drain hose and make sure it is not plugged or kinked.
  • Check the electrical connections at the pump and make sure the pump is running.
  • Check the drain pump filter for foreign objects.
  • If the above does not correct the problem, replace the pump.

Kenmore front load washer (spprox 6 yrs old) will drain, but won't spin. Gives error F4


Hi.

No spin and F4 usually means that the problem is caused by a defective pressure switch.

The following is an extract from the washer service manual:

"F4" flashes and the cycle signal beeps when the recirculate pressure
switch is not working properly during the Catalyst, W ash or Soak cycle.
If "F4" is flashing, check the following:
- Plugged recirculate hose (black hose).
- Plugged or disconnected air tube (clear tube).
- Wires to the recirculate pressure switch disconnected or not
connected correctly.
- Failed recirculate pressure switch. Switch (black wire, tan wire)
contacts should be open with pressure applied and closed with
no pressure.


Try disconnecting power by tripping the circuit breaker or disconnecting power cord for five minutes. If that does not clear the error check the thin clear rubber hose connected to the pressure switch and extending into the tub. Try blowing into pressure hose and clean it. If that does not fix the problem replace the pressure switch.

To locate parts and diagrams, please enter the full model number, as witten in service tag, in this website.

Regards.

Ginko.

F 35 error message


If too much detergent was used, run the unit through a Rinse/ Spin cycle then a Normal cycle without adding any detergent. This should clear the unit of the excess detergent.
Check the drain hose and make sure it is not plugged or kinked

Check the drain pump filter for debris

Check the drain pump

If all the above checks out good . This would indicate that the pressure switch or also called the analog pressure sensor has failed. First you will need to remove the top lid. Usually 2 or 3 screws on the back and the top comes right off. The pressure switch has a clear hose and a clump of wires going to it. Then unplug the hose and blow thru it it should be clear. Check the hose for leaks or obstructions. Also in the back of the washer on the left hand side is a air dome this is where it gets it pressure reading from, make sure it is not obstructed. If all is clear the pressure switch will need to be replaced. Here is a link to help with accessing the pressure switch also if you need diagrams or illustrations of your particular model.

Washer will not leave the drain cycle


Press PAUSE/CANCEL twice to clear the display then
  • Check the drain hose and make sure it is not plugged or kinked.
  • Check the electrical connections at the pump and make sure the pump is running.
  • Check the drain pump filter for foreign objects.
  • If the above does not correct the problem, replace the pump.

It's because of a Long Drain condition. If the drain time exceeds 8 minutes, the water valves are turned off the code is flashed.
But Note: After 4 minutes the "Sud" error is usually displayed, then 4 minutes later the error code is displayed.
