Hi,

  • Get the washer laying on it's side and using the access hole on the bottom carefully remove the screw clamp holding the large hole of the rubber housing to the tub drain (it will be obvious all other clips are green compression clips).

  • Carefully work the strainer out of this flexible rubber drain housing through the large hole.Clean it out and replace you will be good to go. Also remove all the hoses and check for a buildup of gunk. Hope this will fix your problem.

Thank you !!

What do i do when my washer affinity frigidaire displays E20


Hello friend, thank you for your post!

I see your question is labeled under Frigidaire washer, ATF6000ES, and your washer is receiving an error code of "E20". "E20" stands for the water is not pumping out fast enough which means it could be an issue with your control panel or drain pump. I would recommend having a professional come out and properly repair your appliance. I hope this is helpful. -Matt

The washer has a code e 20 come up and stops and want spin


Hello Johnny Cooper -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 if issue continues contact a professional to move forward accurately. The unit may possibly have a faulty pump or control board.

When washer turns on there is a horrible buzzing sound, e 20 error message was on before


This is a blocked drain error code (E20) which can be due to a clogged/kinked drain hose, blocked drain filter/coin trap, or a broken drain pump. The link below provides the detailed troubleshooting procedure of this error code. In addition, replace the drain pump after having found no problem with the drain hose, cleaned the filter, and checked the drain pump impeller but the drain pump just hums, buzzes or whirs.

WHAT DOES E20 MEANS ON A FRONT LOAD


Hi

Error code e20 means a clogged drain pump. This might have happenned due to small clips, pins, coins, etc being stuck in the pump. Please note that error e20 can also occur when the drain pump is not pumping fast enough or when the pump fails. To fix the issue you'll need to check the drain pump.
Remove the 2 screws from the bottom of the front access panel, it will come off. Now check for the pump on the right side and remove hoses from it. Remove pump from machine then clean the debris from the pump. Make sure that you have a container to collect water nearby when you are removing hoses from the pump, as ther would be a lot of water. Please post back for any further assistance.

My washer will not spin and posts E20 error


E20 means that there is a clog somewhere in the drain line. Check the hose, check the check valve at the pump, make sure nothing is clogged or stuck. It should not take you that long to find the problem.

Error Code E 20 is a drain problem in the water pump. Your lines or water pump impeller may be blocked with animal hair, cloth fragments or foriegn materials.) The Impeller is an internal "Fan" that forces water thru the water pump)

Frigidaire affinity front loading washer


Any E20 code means your washer doesn't drain.  More than likely there is a screw, nail, coin, bobby pin, etc locking up your pump and causing it not to drain.  Keep in mind that your washer has a 1 yr warranty but some service companys will charge for this kind of repair because it is not technically covered under warranty.
