SOURCE: F20 Error Message
"F20" is a water inlet problem. This indicates you have insufficient water supply for the washer. Whirlpool is the manufacturer of your washer and they recommend that you unplug the washer and check the following:
1. Check water faucets to ensure they are completely turned on.
2. Check the inlet hose screens where they connect to the washer. The screens can clog with sediment over time and require cleaning. This can be a problem if you live in an area with well water and/or hard water.
3. Ensure the inlet hoses are in good shape and are not kinked.
If you check all the common sense items first and the problem still persists, you need to check the water inlet valve. To access, you will need to remove the top panel of the washer by removing the three screws that hold it in place. Once the screws are removed, the panel slides back, then off. The water inlet valve is located in the left-rear of the washer just prior to the dispenser. Double the electrical connectors to make sure they are not corroded and double check the hoses that run from the inlet valve to ensure they are not kinked. A resistance check of the water inlet solenoids (with the connectors removed) should read about 800 ohms. If the solenoid readings are abnormal, replace the valve.
Please post back if you have questions or require further assistance. I hope you find this information helpful.
