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 need to do when my front loader is giving me E20 code


Hey Kim, thank you for your post!

From what you have described your Frigidaire washer is displaying an error code of E20. I am not showing that as a valid error code and I would recommend performing a reset on your washer. You can reset your washer by disconnecting power from it for at least ten minutes. If you continue to experience issues with that error code please respond back and additionally provide me with your model number. You can locate your serial tag (which lists your model number) on the door frame of the washer. Once I have that information I would be able to further assist you. I look forward to helping you further. -Matt

Frigidaire front load washer (ATF6000SF1) error E20


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

I have a Kenmore Elite washer, model 44092. The machine won't spin and the error code is E20. What is wrong with it?


The machine, based on the error code, is made by Frigidaire for Kenmore. Error code E20 pertains to a slow or no drain problem 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.

Machine flashes e20


I just had the same issue with my Affinity washer. The E20 code indicates that the drain flow out of the tub is not getting to the pump. In the drain line there is a cylinrical plastic filter that is about 1" in diameter by about 4" tall. To get to it on my washer (which is a different model number (atf6000fs0) but probably very similar) I had to take off the top of the washer and the front panel off, then remove the large rubber boot that is held on in 3 locations with hose clamps. The filter was packed with coins, bobby pins, hair, dirt, etc. etc. I cleaned and re-asembled, and it is working fine now. The total job took me about 2 hours, and I like to think I am pretty handy around the house but I am no means a professional.

To see the filter, go to this link http://www.specsserver.com/CACHE/FRJNQDDFTHJV.PDF. It is the manual for your washer. On Page 6, Item 40 is the filter, 41 is the rubber boot, and the clamps are 42 and 48. While I saw one website that indicated you could get to this aree through the panel in the back of the washer, I did not think that possible.

While it can be done by a non-professional, this job is not for those that have no mechanical skills.

My Frigidaire Affinity Model atf6000fs0 Washer presents two error codes at beginning of each cycle - EF0 after about one minute and the E10 after a few minutes - cycle stops there. Nothing else happens....


My Affinity (M - ATF6000FS0) fails to an E-20 code. The troubleshooting guide helped; however, the code continues to come in. The drain line is clear to the pump, but the pump sounds like it is failing. Guidance, insight, feedback....please!
