    The e20 error occurs when the machine cannot drain.
    The pump may be faulty

    Check that your waste hose is not crimped... this will cause the problem you are experiencing also.

    If you cannot find any reason for the machine to pump out, then you may need to get a repair man to assess the problem for you. Sorry that there is not alot more that I can instruct you to do...except offer you Good Luck:)

    regards

    It won't drain

    If your washer won't drain, check these:

    It spins, but doesn't pump
    It doesn't spin or pump
    It pumps, but the water returns




    It spins, but doesn't pump

    If your washer spins but doesn't pump the water out, the drain line is probably clogged. In many washers, a small sock or other piece of clothing can get between the clothes tub and the outer tub that holds the water. If the clothing gets between the tubs, it may then get into the drain hose that's attached to the pump--or even into the pump itself. If it's in the pump, you need to remove the hoses from the pump and pull the item out.

    To remove the sock from the outer tub port, open the washer's main access panel and remove the large-diameter rubber hose that connects the pump to the bottom of the outer tub. Then, using needle-nose pliers, try to grab and remove the clothing through the port.

    Sometimes you can't remove the stuck clothing from below. Then you have to remove the agitator, top of the outer drum shield, and inner clothes tub. This isn't easy to do--and you may need special tools--so you might be happier getting a qualified appliance repair technician to do the job.

    If the drain line isn't plugged, the problem may be with your pump. Even if the pump appears to be turning, the internal impeller may be broken. If so, you need to replace the pump.





    It doesn't spin or pump

    If your washer doesn't spin or pump water out but the motor is running, your washer probably has a frozen pump pulley. If so, you need to replace the pump. To check the pulley, remove the pump from the washer and try to rotate the pulley manually. If it doesn't turn freely--if it's frozen or stiff--replace it.





    It pumps, but the water returns

    If the water that pumps out of the machine goes back into the machine after the spin cycle, your washer may be siphoning the water from a laundry tub that has a slow drain, back into the washer. The usual remedy for this is to improve the draining of the laundry tub. (Is something stuck in the drain?) Also, check for these problems:



    • If the drain hose reaches more than about 4 inches into the laundry tub, cut off the excess.


    • If your drain hose is lower than the washer's cabinet, install an air gap/siphon break assembly.

Machine stops half way through program


One looses touch with all the codes available, but normally if washer stops mid cycle its due to a blocked or faulty drain pump. OR incomming water is to slow or defective inlet sensor. Switch off and start from the beginning. See if you can get machine to drain by moving the timer etc. If not, rectify pump problem. Take note where in the cycle the problem arises.

Count the number of green flashes(1st number of error code). count number of red flashes(2nd number of error code).
Common codes are:
E10 or 11 water pressure faults.
E20 filter/pump faults.
E30 pressure switch/heater faults.
E40 door switch faults.
E50 motor faults.
E60 Heater faults.
These are some of the error codes but there are many variations on some codes depending on the model.Hpoe this has been some help.

Hoover hpe 236. water not draining, stops mid cycle, lights flash


Have you checked the pump filter, and or that the pump is actually working. if it spins o/k with no water in, then I would suspect a draining problem.
If filter clean and pump o/k, then it could be a control module fault. if this were the case, then it would probably be wiser to purchase a new washer.
Hope this is of some help to you.

I have a Zanussi Electrolux ZWF 1430 W and it's coming up with an E20 error code. The machine starts off OK but after about 25 minutes the Error Code E20 starts flashing in display and the machine stops...


E20 is a draining error.
  1. First, try to reset the machine to factory settings first by setting cycle selector to off position for 5 sec, then to spin for 5 sec, then back to off for 5 sec, and then to spin. The machine should reset allowing you to select the drain cycle and get the water out of the machine then run a spin cycle to clear any remaining water before you unscrew the filter to clear it.
  2. Next, you need to take the filter out at the front, bottom right, of the machine, empty it of all lint and replace it. It may have water trapped in so be ready to soak up excess liquid! Also, make sure when you put it back in you have tightened it enough to avoid leaking but not too much that you cannot get it back out.
  3. If this doesn't fix the problem, check your drain pipe hoses to make sure they are not kinked and flush them out.
  4. Last but not least, replace the drain pump.

Try to replace the door seal on my zanussi fjr 1454w washing mach


its a pain, I am not sure of the zanussi systems, on a Hoover/candy and hotpoint/idesit, these are a clamp band with spring and bolt, you have to secure both sides of the nut and bolt, and unthread the bolt the clamp will open up and can be removed, and do the opposite putting it back on, I find access from the top of the machine is easier to work with on the inner clamp, but remember to turn of the power as some of the components around where you will have access from will be live, always unplug from the wall, shocks are not very nice or good for the heart.

Drain pump removal on Zanussi FJR1254 Washing Machine


not easy.suggest you disconnect pump and power up independently as an easy way to check if it runs
easiest way to remove pump - and its awkward - is to undo the 3 screws holding the pump to its housing

Zanussi jet system 1200


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. Press "end of cycle" to finish the mid stoppage..

Rate me pl.....if helped.

If it's similiar to the F1231 w than i found a color catcher caught between the pump impeller and pump cover. this is located at the bottom right front of the 1235W and flips open. grey hose beside it pulls out and remove cap of hose and drain into bowl.

Tip take wet clothes out of machine to speed up the emptying of machine - this dawnwd on me after a few minutes.

Some more water will come out when you remove the pump cover - screw anti clock wise.

ee pages 18-19 of the zanussi guide for cleaning instructions. I found this link to manual on internet

http://www.manualshark.org/manualshark/files/6/pdf_13638.pdf

or check your own manual for cleaning instructions and remember unplug power first - just in case. you may need to reset your wash to do a rinse again as i got a vibrating sound when i restarted and skipped to spin. hope this helps
