E20: problem with water draining

Try emptying the drain filter, normally at the bottom of the washer

    How do I empty it first though as it wont drain? Is it just a case of lots of towels on the floor..?!

  • Bobbinz Oct 13, 2010

    If the filter is blocked then I'm afraid so. If you find where the filter is (normally bottom of washer front) and open it slowly, you may be able to catch the water in a shallow container. good luck

  • Bobbinz Oct 13, 2010

    Further to my last reply, it appears that this model has an emergency drain hose next to the filter cap, so you should be able to drain the water into a suitable container.

  • nicolapurdy Oct 13, 2010

    Thank you so far! Ok, emptied the water, took the filter out, looks totally fine. Tried the cycle again, flashed up E40 this time, retried, said E20 again... What next?!

  • nicolapurdy Oct 13, 2010

    Ah, just saw the manual link (thank you!) so E40 is door open... What do I check next as the filter looks normal?

  • Bobbinz Oct 13, 2010

    Well it sounds like either there is a blockage somewhere else, or the pump isn't working. Can you get to the drain pipe at the back, and check if there is a blockage there (i.e. full of water)

    If you empty the water from the washer, are you able to put the machine into spin dry mode? If so, can you hear the pump trying to pump water out?

SOURCE: what does e20 mean?

Hi

Error code e20 means a clogged drain pump. This might have happenned due to small clips, pins, coins, etc being stuck in the pump. Please note that error e20 can also occur when the drain pump is not pumping fast enough or when the pump fails. To fix the issue you'll need to check the drain pump.
Remove the 2 screws from the bottom of the front access panel, it will come off. Now check for the pump on the right side and remove hoses from it. Remove pump from machine then remove whatever is there in the pump.

Please post back for any further assistance.

My machine comes up E20 towards end of program what does this mean


Really need the make and model of your machine as different manufacturers use the same code to mean diferent things. Hotpoint/Indesit/Creda generally use E20 to mean there is a problem with temperature sensing (Which generally indicated that the water heater element has failed. Zanissu/AEG Lavmat use E20 to indicate that the empty pump is blocked (Usually behind a kick plate at the bottom of the machine or a flip open door, you will find a cover that looks a little like a fuel cap). AEG also use E20 to indicate a door lock fault on some models. Personally, the fact that it is near the end of the cycle would indicate to me you have a blocked empty pump
