"F20" is a water inlet problem. This indicates that you have no water or insufficient water supply. What Whirlpool recommends to do is unplug the washer and check your water inlet screens to ensure they are not clogged, check the inlet hoses for kinks, and to make sure your taps are turned on (duh! I know it sounds stupid, but I've seen it before).

To check the water inlet screens you will need to turn off the water supply and disconnect the hoses where they connect to the back of the washer. The inlet screens are located inside the tap fittings and sometimes will collect with sediment and rust depending on your water source. Some hoses also have sediment screens. Check them as well if you have them. Use cotton swabs to clean the screens, thoroughly.

Checking the hoses and taps is self-explanatory. The water supply coming into the washer should be at least 10-25 psi. Insufficient water pressure can cause problems with slow fills and/or error codes due to insufficient pressure. If you haven't had any problems before, I would suspect dirty inlet screens and/or a inlet valve failure.

If you need to replace the water inlet valve, searspartsdirect.com carries the part. Just type in your model number in the Search menu and look for item #1 under the "Dispenser Parts" heading (part #8182862). The part runs about $52.00.

I hope this helps you. If you need further assistance, please post back with any questions/concerns you may have.
