You need to remove the front panel and take the black boot off the bottom of the tub and remove the coin trap inside the boot and remove all the foreign material that may be built up inside

How to fix error e20


E20 code.
Means that the washer is not able to drain, therefore it won't spin either. And in several cases the main door will not open - for the machine does not want you to drown. Underneath the washer is a series of outlet hoses and within one of them is a filter. Unscrew this you will find it clogged up with lint, fibers from a pillow, junk, coins. (Send me the coins) You have to dig the filter out, clean and refit everything carefully - means note down how you dismantled.


For some washers the filter is at the front, usually right side, side bottom, not underneath. This is easier to clean up. In both cases plug should be off the wall; and be prepared for a lot of dirty water

When washer turns on there is a horrible buzzing sound, e 20 error message was on before


This is a blocked drain error code (E20) 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. In addition, replace the drain pump after having found no problem with the drain hose, cleaned the filter, and checked the drain pump impeller but the drain pump just hums, buzzes or whirs.

E20 code keeps showing and you have to restart the machine so it will spin. Looking at a diagram of the motor and tub we are not real sure how easy it will be to remove the pump filter to clean. Can you...


Hi

You are right, E20 error code means that the drains hose/filter assembly is kinked and the water is unable to drain. If the hoses are clean/clear then please post back with the manufacturers name and model no of your washer for further assistance.

Door on washing machine is locked with e20 code


This particular code is used when the machine detects a pump problem or water draining problem. In this case, the fault would occurr just before attempting to spin. It turned out to be a blocked filter, accessible from the bottom front of the machine. so the best thing to do is clean the filter on the front of the machine open the flap and undo the filter water will come out so be ready for that. after it is cleaned and filter all back in and secure switch machine back on at plug and run cycle this should fix it. hope this helps.
Here are some error codes for future problems. E10 - not filling
E20 - not draining
E40 - door open
EFO - Filter blocked

Hi , I have an elctrolux washing machine, and it stops half way through the cycle 'saying' E20. Does anyone know waht I have to do Thanks RN


E20 is difficulties in draining for washing. which can be drain tube kinked or blocked, drain filter clogged or dirty or the pump impeller behind filter is getting jammed by a coin or cotton or anything wrapped around it, remove filter and look at back of hole and see if impeller will turn use a long screwdriver to turn it, obviously with the power off

E20 ERROR CODE


Plug off the mains. First drain out all your water by lowering the exit hose into a bucket or drain. You have to look for screws below the front kick-panel, the panel comes down & out. The pump is on the right side. Be prepared for dirty water. Inside the big flexible tube (coming from the tub bottom) is the filter, be prepared to find all sorts of junk here, clean out. Examine your pump also, clean out the impeller. Carefully refit all. Your machine would be fine. Don’t wait for the machine to jam to look into your filter.

My washer wont spin out it has a code that is E20


Check your exit hose spigot, it may be clogged. This is if your filter is all clean. There should be air for passage in the standpipe behind. Your hose should not fit airtight into the standpipe and neither too deep into it. Snaking out your standpipe would be good too.

Rate me pl.....if helped.

E20 = Problems with water drain in wash phase ALARM CODES E20 Is the drain filter clean; Problems during draining phase (Machine tries to drain for 10 min without emptying the tub) Checks to do: E20 Is the drain pump working? Is the value of the pump about 200Ω? (Measure directly the connector by the board, between J2-2 and J2-7) ; If No Change the pump and run again Clean the filter; Is the draining system OK (drain hose and plumbing where machine is connected) Free and check the draining system; Is the pump blocked? Is there any burn mark on the control board; if yes Change the board E90 = Communication error between user interface and main board. Verify the connector between the main board and user interface board by plugging and unplugging the connector few times on both sides, OR replace the blue ribbon cable. The fault could have been caused by oxidized contacts in user interface plugged in the main board. Kind Regards David Marsh

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
