E20 is a fault either in the filter/pump or drain.
The water must be drained thru. the little hose by filter or get machine to back door and undo filter plug and drain onto back step its quicker.With filter out see if any blockages,shine torch up in filter hole turn to spin/drain and see if pump blade spins if not then get long screwdriver and turn blade to free if no joy pump has to come out to free,hopefully this will work and refit plug and check for leaks.Then try again.
E20 is a general error code to get to the real problem try this..
Reading Error Codes
1. Wake the washer by pressing any button.
2. Wait 5 seconds.
3. Press and hold the START/PAUSE and CANCEL
buttons simultaneously. As long as the buttons are
held, the failure code will appear in the display as
an “E” followed by two numbers, a number and a
letter or two letters. The control will beep and the
Door Lock, Wash, Rinse, and Final Spin indicator
lights will flash. let me know what code come up... hope it helps
Error E20 means the machine has failed to pump out. 1st check the filter at the bottom right hand side there may still be water inside if so pull the grey tab to the left of the filter there should be a thin hose extend it put it into a shallow dish and pull the cap off to let the water drain this may be a slow process. When the filters out look into the hole with a torch to see if any obstructions in the pump impeller this looks like a cross. If the filters and pump are clear it may be the pump has failed.
I had the same problem (E20) for a long time and tried everything in the manual before I called AEG to have someone stop by and fix it.
He took the whole top off as well as the back and pulled out all this fuzz that was stopped somewhere. He said it normally comes from using too much detergant and also from not letting the machine run empty every now and then....but it doesn't say to do this in the manual. And anyway, I can't imagine that using too much wash powder made 1/2 kg of fluff.
I still have a guarantee on the machine, but they say that because it is my fault that I got E20 I have to pay for the repairment myself.
I actually think that they build the machine purposly in this way to keep up the money flow. I have an attorney on the case now.
