Hi, I have done all of the above and the rota/filter at the back is turning fine. I think it must be the water pump? Is it a job I would be able to do myself or will I have to call someone in? Are new pumps expensive?? Is it worth me getting a new washer??
Many thanks

SOURCE: e20 fault display

Hello,
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.

Good luck.

Another AEG e20 Plea, tried everything please help!


E20 on your machine means some sort of drain problem. If it actually goes through the spin cycle fine; some water will still not drain out at the time of the tumble dry. Check the wall drain to make sure it isn't clogged..


Check the drain of your wall, not the washer, this shd be cleaned out thoroughly; and the exit pipe of your washer should not fit too tight into it, there shd be some space for air.


This is a further tip, if helped click helped.

E20 code flashing Crosley washing machine


E20 is a draining issue. You probably have objects obstructing the drain line.

Grinding sound - drum turns then nothing - just grinding sound until E20 warning.


Hello,
Can you turn the drum by hand.E20 relates to a fault with either the pump or the filter or drain may be blocked,check the filter is clean and the pump can be turned by hand,its up at the end of filter housing and can be seen depending on the model.If the drum cant be turned freely then you have something stuck inside the drum.

Hope this was helpful.

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

Dear ladies and gentlemen, our problem is, that we have a full mashine stopp with e20 accuring on the led before the detenser enters the toumble. our mashine is an aeg 16809 e20 thanks for your fast reply


You've answered your own question. E20 is a draining failure. Blockage in the sump hose, pump, drain hose or faulty pump. Clear the blockage or replace the pump if faulty and you'll clear the fault.

Have you took the front cover off and looked for the strainer which is located before the water pump. I have seen many of them plugged tightly, causing the water not to drain. Look inside the owners manual that came with the machine. It also should give you some things to check that would cause the code E20 to keep flashing. Hope this helps.

My aeg washer dryer comes up with e20 flashing i have checked the pipes, changed the pump cleaned the bottom filter, pump is now working but e20 fault still comes up half way through the wash cycle... how...


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.

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
