E20 means a pump blockage and can be "easily" fixed at no cost. Here is how.

I tipped the machine back enough to safely lean against the wall, pulled off a few clamps on the coin trap hose. I couldnt get 2 of the clamps off as they were positioned away from me and didnt have the right tools to mess with it in that cramped space. from the main drum drainage i could feel the coin trap/filter and sure enough, it was absolutely disgusting. So in only a month, the lint from our new towels, dog hair, and gobs of dirt we managed to pack that filter, i got it out and cleaned it out, put it all back together and its good as new.

Here is what the trap looks like.

What does the error message E20 on the frigidaire front load washer GLTF2940FS mean?


Hello - The error code "E20" typically means the water is not draining properly or not pumping out fast enough. Does the washer making a humming noise? If so, either the drain hose may be kinked or the drain in the house is clogged. Once you have confirmed and cleaned the hose and issue continues contact a professional to move forward accurately. The unit may possibly have a faulty pump or control board.

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.

E20 message want spin


E20 is not an exact error code. It's indicating a possible pump out problem. Here is a few possible causes of an E20 error code:

1. Restriction in the drain pump

2. Failed pump

3. Water not pumping out fast enough (crimped drain hose)

4. Too many suds ( too much detergent or wrong kind)

5. Pressure switch (not communicating with control board)

6. Loose wire at pressure switch

7. Loose wire at pump or control board

8. Failed control board

E20 code. Not draining


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 code E20. This is not listed on the error code chart. What do I do to fix the problem.


E20 means the drain hose is plugged or kinked or the household drains are plugged. YOur washer will not drain and spin until this is fixed.

turn off the washer/unplug it/remove the drain hose and check for a clog. If it is there, clean it out. If not - check your sinks and toilets for slow running drains. The garbage disposal is a good place to start as well. plug the sink, fill it with hot water, then pull the plug and start the disposal. That will help clean the disposal and also show you if you have a drainage problem there. Plunge the toilets, etc.

Good luck to you!

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.
