Somebody suggested to me that there is a condensation tray at the back that has become blocked. He said to take the back of the washing machine off and at the bottm right hand corner there is the condensation tray. This will need de-fluffing!! I haven't tried it yet but am also looking for answers!! Let me know if you come across any other info. Pete

Thanks for the response for the Zanussi. Ended up having the pump replaced. Cost about £50

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.

E20 is "A problem with water draining"
Solutions:
The drain hose may be squashed or kinked
the drain pump may be blocked
or possible your filter is totally blocked. Clean out the filter everything will work again. Put a large bowl under the filter as you unscrew it; a fair amount of water could be there.
Good luck.Please rate the solution if accepted, also do post comments in case of any doubts.

I have taken out the filter and washed it thoroughly! Also flushed the out pipe to make sure the whole system was clean. This resolved the problem

Possibly blocked sump hose( bottom of drum) or pump not running,,,,drain water by putting outlet hose down too ground level, when water drained out put machine on spin. If machine spins ok, then you have a pump problem,,,,if water won't drain out when outlet hose at ground level then you have a blocked hose

Zanussi washer dryer showing e20 error message in dryig cycle


Hi

This means that the filter is clogged. Unscrew the filter it'll be full of lint. E20 also means drain problem. If it actually goes through the Spin cycle then there is most likely some water still not drained out at the time of the tumble dry. Check the drain and the hose to make sure it isn't clogged.

Please get back to us if you have further query else please accept the suggestion.

My zanussi FJS1025W washing machine is showing the error code E20 and it wont let me spin or drain the water away. I have cleaned all the filter but still it wont do anything other than take in the water...


Hi,
E20 is a draining error.
Check the filter.You need to take the filter out, empty it of all lint and replace it. It may have water trapped in already, so get a cloth 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.

If still the problem persists then the problem is with the draining pump.The pump is not pumping out the water.Check the pump impeller it may got stuck due to some obstacles.Replace it and this wont come again.

Thank You

Wont finish wash cycle, comes up on digital screen e20


Hello,
Have you checked the pump/filter,E20 relates to that.
If water is still in the drum you will need to drain it out either thru. the little drain hose by the filter if it has one (slow job).Or if you can get the machine near an outside door then undo filter plug and let water drain outside.Once water is out then get a torch and check up inside filter housing if pump blade can turn fully.One way to check is to put machine to spin/drain then see if pump spins,if not then you need to find if an object is stuck in blade if you cannot free from front then you need to remove pump.As long as power is off incline machine back against unit or lay on its back.ON the side of the filter housing where pump is mounted there is a small plastic tab which you need to bend slighty with a pliers be careful not to go too far as it can break,remove cables from pump twist pump in an Anti-clockwise direction and remove.Check for any debris in pump also in pipes either side of pump,fitting is the reverse of taking out just note that there is a longer cut out to the others which will only line up one way with pump.re-fit cables and filter try and check for leaks.
Hope this was helpful.

Good Luck.

My ZWD1680W stoped half way through a cycle flashed up E20 i draind i t tryed to spin got half way through and went of no power at all NOW


Hello,
It still seems that something is stuck in the pump causing the machine to do nothing check the filter and pump again whilst the filter is out get a torch and look inside the end of the filter housing,now put the control to spin or drain and see if the pump blade is spinning if not then there is either something stuck in the pump or the pump motor is faulty and needs replacing.
Good luck.

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.
