Thanks for using FixYa. Error F20 indicates no water is entering in machine and/or the pressure switch trip was not detected. To resolve this issue check the water supply has been turned on, then check the water inlet valve for any clogs and clean it. If there is water in the unit then check the drain pump and also verify that the pressure switch is working fine. If the water inlet valve has gone bad then it should be replaced. Also check the wire harness connections to the water inlet valve and pressure switch. Please do rate the solution if the issue is resolved or post a comment for further assistance.

Inlet water valve error when the door is opened and closed during a washing cycle

If water is siphoning out, either drain hose is too far down pipe or there is an airtight seal where drain hose goes into pipe.

Hi my washing machine is only going throught half it's cycle 7 not pumping out water

It is a common fault that the drain fails to work in most machines in a period of time and is the most problematic fault in a washing machine. In all occasions it is important that your observation is most important and so is vital to the identification /rectification and solution. If you have noticed that water has leaked then as the drain hose pump/valve and fittings are located on the underside of the machine it is important that you look for possible leaks here. In some cases the drain hose would be clogged at the drain end to outlet of the house and so there will be back flushing resulting in overflow to the outside. Also the drain pump/valve can be clogged. Now remove the drain hose clamps and remove the drain pump/valve, clean the drain pump/valve, use back flushing to clear off all dirt. Now test using power to see if this works and can be simulated. When refitting, the hose must be tightened properly. If the pump/valve does not work even with power then it must be replaced. If there is intermittent power to the drain valve/pump then the program controller unit is a suspect.

Cleaning a pump:

Finally the washer must be placed with a tilt- use a spirit level- so that all water will drain to the outlet port and thereby there is no residual water remaining.

Not spinning and washing cycle not completing

Unplug the power and take the back off the unit. Find the Water Pump in it and take hoses off it and look inside and see if it has nails, pins, coins or something else in it. Some pumps can be taken apart, you may have to do this. Just be careful and do it on a clean towel so if parts fall out, you will not loose them. Go slowly, patiently, and give yourself plenty of time. This is the first and most common check to eliminate. Kindly, Jim

My washer works on any wash cycle that does not use hot water. However, if I choose a hot wash setting, it starts and begins the cycle then stops. The door is locked but the cycle stops running.

Make sure that you are getting water out of the hot side. Close both faucets, and remove the hot side washer hose. Have something at the ready to catch the water. A bucket will do fine. Inspect both ends of the hose. Usually, there is a screen there to catch any sediment. Inspect the hot connection to the solenoid valve at the back of the washer. There's usually a screen there, too. If you note any specks of debris, pull the screen(s) out and clean. Reconnect the hose to the hot faucet. Pointing the open end at the bucket, open the water valve, making sure that you are getting water there.
>> If you are getting plenty of water at the faucet and through the hose, the problem is probably the solenoid valve. Replace, but unplug the washer first.
>> If the water supply is lacking, you have plumbing issues.

Water won't drain

Hi fixitfran,

I'm Harvey the Master Plumber.

Your problem is: You have pulled the dishwasher out and checked hose. No kink in line. You have taken cleaned out dishwasher and no clog. You poored water into dishwasher and it drains from the bottom not throught drain hose. You have checked the drain hose on the bottom of the dishwasher and to no don't know what is causing this issue....can I help you out with this? LG-14AW3 Dishwasher does not drain properly and then powers itself off mid cycle. Filters are clean and there are no kinks in the drain hose. How do you fix this and will it be very expensive.

Have you recently replaced the garbage disposal? Sometimes the installer forgets to remove the knockout plug. All of the disposal manufacturers plug the d/w connection in case it is installed where there is no d/w. If there is a d/w, the plug must be removed.

Feel free contact me again!

Won't let cold water in

Take the water supply hose off and clean out the inlet screen located inside the water valve where the hose was attached to the machine. Note: there may be a screened hose washer on one end of the hose also.

Water won't drain

As suspected, it is most likely the drain pump.

For one that works intermittently, the impeller is probably slipping on the motor shaft. Sometimes it grips, other times it doesn't, causing the water to not be removed, which the machine senses and shuts down.

If this occurs during the wash cycle itself, there may also be a problem with the wash pump. That usually displays an E1 error.
