Re: pauses at 20 minutes!!!!
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.

There is an access panel on the back of the unit. 6 screws and on the bottom is a rubber hose that comes from the tub. inside that rubber hose is a filter cup. i have the same unit and mine did the same thing. took it out pulled clog out put it back together. works like a charm. hard to get at but you can do it. use a drill with a Phillips head to make it quicker. Also have pliers and a pair of channel locks on hand.
Hi Lance - It means that the washer has been paused; the cycle has been interrupted. Either the "Pause/Cancel" button or "Start/Pause" button has been pressed. To resume wash - press "Pause/Cancel" or "Start/Pause" once. If this does not prove to be successful please turn the breaker to the unit off for 5 minutes. Then turn the breaker back on to the unit, and retry the cycle setting again.
Hello there and thank you for chosing fixya Here is a few things to check before you do a manual opening of the door You may have already done these steps but please try this again in this order ok?
Check to see if the "Add a
Garment" light is lit on the Duet's display. The light will only be on
during the first eight minutes of a washer cycle, when the function is
usable. Press the "Pause/Cancel" button once to pause the washing cycle and unlock the door.Press the Press the "Pause/Cancel" button twice to cancel the wash cycle if the
"Add a Garment" light is not illuminated. THIS IS A BIGGIE HERE (Wait for the water to drain.
The door unlocks once enough water has drained to enable you to safely
open the washer door NOW IF THESE STILL DO NOT WORK THEN HERE IS HOW TO MANUALLY OPEN THE DOOR UNPLUG THE MACHINE Remove the three screws securing the lower toe panel to the washing
machine. The lower toe panel is the small rectangular panel underneath
the washer's front door. Pull the panel off the washer once the three
screws are removed.Reach up into the front panel of the washer. Feel for the teardrop-shaped tab in the washer's door latch assembly.Pull down on the tab until you hear a click. The click is the sound of the door unlocking.
To remove the error display, press Power/Cancel or Pause/Cancel twice.
If Power/Cancel or Pause/Cancel does not work: Unplug washer or disconnect power for one minute. Plug in washer or reconnect power. Re-select the cycle and press Start/Pause. NOTE: If the error remains on the display, call for service.
Had same problem with GE wssh300 front load washer. Removed two screws from front bottom panel (under washer front). Pulled off panel, loosened screw from a seal ring on the rubber flex hose going to a 4" square plastic housing. Reached down inside and found a ton of lint (probaby a 2" balls worth) jamming outlet. Removed lint an works geat. Very easy to do by tilting front of washer up and putting supports under front to keep elevated. Be careful to make sure supports are sturdy washer can't dop when servicing.
