An F20 code is telling you that the anticpated fill time limit has been exceeded.

This can be caused by
1. Dirty water inlet screens on the water valve. Also possibly the hoses at the wall connection if the unit was installed with additional hose screens.
2. Kinked water supply hoses
3. LOW WATER pressure
4. A weak or open coil of the inlet water valve solenoid.
5. A kinked or restriction of the hose that goes from the water valve to the tub inlet.
6. (VERY RARE) A defective machine control board.
7. Bad faucett washers on the wall connection hose bibb where the rubber faucett washer has deterorated and is blocking or restricting water flow inside the shut off valve on the wall.
8. Debris blocking the diaphram of the water passages inside the inlet water valve (Can not be verified by disassembly due to the construction of the water valve.) You must check flow rate into the tub after verifying all the possibilites above except #6.

These are all real possibilites and each one of them must be checked out. This is not a difficult task and a good many washing machine users should be able to isolate the problem.

If you need machine specific information we will need your make and model number to assist you in the future.

F20 error code


Hi.

F20 means that there is a water inlet problem:

Reasons for error F20:
(Water Inlet Problem-no water or insufficient
water supply) Select PAUSE/CANCEL 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?

If that does not help inlet valve, pressure switch and control module must be tested. The defective part must be replaced.

Here the tech sheet.

Regards.
