Your washer water valve inlet screens may be dirty / covered with debris and need cleaned. Some hoses have additional screens installed at the faucett connection depending on who did the install process. Low water pressure will also cause this code.

F20 error code on maytag epic any idea what this means?


F20 means that the unit isn't detecting water is entering the machine quick enough. When the error code appears if there is little to no water in the tub, then you have an issue with either the water supply to the washing machine or the electronic water valve. If the washing machine fills up about 1/2 way up the door and is overfilling with the water, it means that your pressure switch is faulty and will need to be replaced because it's not detecting that water is entering the machine.

Im getting a F20 code on my Maytag 4000 series front load washer. What does this mean


"F20" is a "No Water Detect" error code. This usually means you have very little water entering the machine, or no water at all. The following link explains the error code in more detail and steps necessary to troubleshoot:

http://www.fixya.com/support/r3608632-f20_error_code

Replacement parts (if required) can be purchased at any of the following websites:

searspartsdirect.com
pcappliancerepair.com
appliancepartspros.com
repairclinic.com

Prices vary between sites, so shop and compare. The first three sites listed also have helpful exploded view parts illustrations to assist you with locating and properly identifying the parts you may need.



NOTE: Each one of thes washers comes with a technical data sheet inside. The tech sheet lists all error codes, troubleshooting information, wiring diagrams, diagnostics procedures and illustrations. To access, you need to remove the lower toe panel directly below the door. The screws are located under the bottom front edge. With the screws removed, the panel will drop down and can be removed. If the tech sheet is not located directly behind the toe panel, it will be affixed to one of the interior cabinet walls.
I mention the tech sheet, because you may need to refer to it in order to accurately troubleshoot.
If you have any questions, please post back and let me know. I hope this information is helpful to you

I have a 4000 Series Maytag Frontload Washer that is blinking with a F-20 error code. I am trying to find out what this means.


The F20 code usually means a washer fill problem. It could be low water pressure or no water pressure. Check that your water valves are open on both the hot and cold inlets. Check the hoses for kinks or damage that interrupts the water flow. Check for debris in the inlet filters and clean the filters. Some anti-flood hoses can close their internal valve if the water pressure builds up. This could cause the machine to see no water pressure. What is your water pressure (it should be above 10 psi)? If you have a water well, this could could give low water pressure to the washer and trigger the error.

Replace the hoses if needed. If you have a High Efficiency washer, make sure to use HE detergent. Excess suds could cause the incoming water flow to be judged as low.

See http://maytag.custhelp.com/app/answers/detail/a_id/2887/~/display-shows-f20-or-fh---front-load-washer for details.

I hope this helps.

What does an f22 error message on my Maytag 3000 series washer mean?


F22 is door lock error. This is usually fixed replacing the door lock. Connection from door lock to CCU (control panel) may also be responsible.

I have a error code washer mayta f20


Hi,

"F20" indicates a water inlet problem (no water or insufficient water supply) in your washer. To resolve this issue check your washer inlets, maybe the water valves are off or you don't have enough water pressure.


Thank you!!

F20 error


troubleshooting with the F20code what it says in the trouble shooting section:

Ff20 (water inlet problem, no water or insufficient water supply)

Select stop twice to cancel the cycle. Unplug washer or disconnect power.

Check the following:

Are water faucets completely turned on?

Are screens at inlet hose connection to washer clogged?

Are water inlet hoses kinked?

Are water inlet hoses frozen?

Plug in washer. Re select cycle and press start.

you have every right to be frustrated. Maytag is actually one of the best when it comes to reliability so hopefully, once it is fixed you will not have a problem again for a very long time.

I recommend that you file a formal complaint with Maytag. Here is the link to the formal complaint form
