Drainage filter was blocked, hole melted in drum!

I think my machine overheated when I was using the dryer,code E20 came up. when I did a wash water leaked out of the bottom of machine.We took apart the filter and pump which was really gunged up, tried a wash and water poured out of 2 melted holes in the drum. Is there anything we can do? Is it worth buying a new drum or is the machine scrap?? Thanks

    when the wash is on error e20 keeps comming up. When you press start it worka again for a while and then stops again displaying the same error. sometimes it puts the wash back ie 15 minutes left back to 22 minutes. The wash finishes but you have to keep pushing the button to continue the washing.

Hi, I used JB Weld (an epoxy type paste available from a DIY store) to mend several small holes in the drum on my washing machine. May be worth trying if the holes are not too big even if its only a temporary measure to check whether the machine still works OK before deciding if you want to buy a new drum.

Wat is code for e20 on a ewf 1080


E20 error code measn blocked filter. Removing the blocked filter you have to remove the water from inside by using the small flexible tube which located next to the filter at the right bottom of the machine. Then the only think it still remains was to unscrew and clear the filter.

Hope helps.

Door on washing machine is locked with e20 code


This particular code is used when the machine detects a pump problem or water draining problem. In this case, the fault would occurr just before attempting to spin. It turned out to be a blocked filter, accessible from the bottom front of the machine. so the best thing to do is clean the filter on the front of the machine open the flap and undo the filter water will come out so be ready for that. after it is cleaned and filter all back in and secure switch machine back on at plug and run cycle this should fix it. hope this helps.
Here are some error codes for future problems. E10 - not filling
E20 - not draining
E40 - door open
EFO - Filter blocked

Hi , I have an elctrolux washing machine, and it stops half way through the cycle 'saying' E20. Does anyone know waht I have to do Thanks RN


E20 is difficulties in draining for washing. which can be drain tube kinked or blocked, drain filter clogged or dirty or the pump impeller behind filter is getting jammed by a coin or cotton or anything wrapped around it, remove filter and look at back of hole and see if impeller will turn use a long screwdriver to turn it, obviously with the power off

Why can i not get the dryer to work? error E20 is flashing.


HI,
Can you hear the pump trying to drain it when you start a cycle? If not it needs a new pump.

Is there a block in the drainage pipe (blow down it and see if it bubbles in the filter compartment). Or a block in the drain - try pouring some water down in.

Otherwise, I had the same problem (an E20 but a clean filter, no blockage and working pump) and it turned out the condenser (a large plastic vessel) or the right side of the machie (you have to take the whole back off) was full of fluff. The engineer just used a wire hanger and ran it under water to clean it out.

If you've found that it hasn't been drying the clothes fully recently that could well be the problem.

I am getting a Code E20 on Zanussi Washer Dryer ZWD 1271W


E20 is an error code for drainage failure.



Check where the appliance drain hose connects to the house drains for a blockage.

If it's onto a spigot under the sink, take them off and check both for a blockage.

If these are ok then it's likely to be a blockage in the pump.



You'll need to drain the water out manually.

Put a shallow dish below the filter and slacken the filter.

Tighten it to stop the flow of water while you empty the dish.

Once empty, take the filter out, clean out the debris and ensure nothing is left jamming the pump.

Before refitting the filter, put the machine on drain or spin and listen at the filter housing to see if you can hear the pump running.

If you do, fit the filter and try the machine again.

Frigidaire Front loading washer error codes E41 and E20


Hi
E20 is a drainage error. If there is water in the drum make sure the discharge pipe at the back of the machine is not kinked or blocked. You should also check the pump filter is not clogged - this is behind the front panel underneath the drum at the front of the machine.

E41 = Control board thinks the door switch is open. This points towards a faulty door switch on the machine.

Hope this helps. Please remember to rate my answer. Many thanks.

Have hotpoint wd860 washer/dryer. Message fy05 appears, any ideas - won't spin


This code relates to a drainage problem and will probably be a blocked filter. Check behind the kick plate at bottom of machine for screw off type filter, if not there it will be in the large pipe from drum to pump at the drum end.
Thankyou for using Fixya.

E20 message


The filter is blocked. Disconnect your power source. Open the panel. Have a towel or wet vac handy and a screw driver. There is a silver ring circling the drainage hose with a small screw on top. Loosen the screw. Pinch the hose on top and let water drain to wet vac or towel. Completely remove the hose from it's housing. Reach your thumb and index finger inside that same hose and pull out the filter. It looks like a small plastic cup with holes in it. Clean it out, wash it. Use your fingers or dry vac hose and feel the bottom of the inside of the hose where the plastic cup came from. Remove any debri that excaped past the filter with fingers or suction with hose til you can feel with your fingers that the bottom of the inside of the hose is clear. return the cup back inside the hose. Put the silver ring over the lip of the hose then place the hose back on it's metal housing which is attached to the machine. Make sure the hole is secured around the entire metal (if not you will get leakage). Tighten the small screw, pull down at the hose making sure it will not come off with the pressure of the water. Clean up any leakage. Close panel and I promise you, your problem will be solved. Good luck, from Cheryl AlAlexander

Error code 20


Hi, I also got the error code E20 when the filter became totally blocked during the washing cycle (due to a pair of my son's old work jeans!). Once I cleaned out the filter everything worked ok again. Put a large bowl under the filter as you unscrew it; a fair amount of water could be there. Regards, John
