Drain pump removal on Zanussi FJR1254 Washing Machine

My machine is displaying error message E20 and has stopped mid cycle. Have checked and cleaned filter, still no good. Can also smell burning when machine stops. I think I need to remove drain pump to check for blockage, but how is it removed?

Not easy.suggest you disconnect pump and power up independently as an easy way to check if it runs
easiest way to remove pump - and its awkward - is to undo the 3 screws holding the pump to its housing

My washing maching is reading E20 and it is not washing. it seems to stop after a few minutes of washing and then it will read E20 and just continuosly beep


Hello.

Frigidaire front-loading washing machines have an electronic control panel where the wash cycle and any other wash options are selected, and the wash cycle is initiated and stopped, if necessary. The control panel also has indicator lights that show the washer status and will display an error code if there are issues with the washer. The "E20" error code indicates a possible pump problem.

Blocked Pump

One of the primary reasons why there may be an "E20" error code on a Frigidaire front-loading washing machine is if there is something blocking the pump. Disconnect the washing machine from the power and release the clips on each side to remove the front access panel. Set a container under the pump drain, which is located on the lower right side of the washing machine. Open the pump drain plug and allow it to drain. Clean out any debris that might be causing the obstruction, then close the drain plug. Close the access panel and restore power to the washer.

Drain Hose

If the drain hose is blocked or crimped, the water may not pump out fast enough, causing the pump error to appear on the display. Straighten out the drain hose in the rear of the washing machine and move it away from the washer if it's trapped between the wall and the washing machine.

Oversudsing

If too much detergent--or the wrong kind of detergent--is used in the washing machine, too many suds may result. This can overwhelm the drain and pump system, resulting in the error. Use only high efficiency (HE) laundry detergent with Frigidaire washing machines and follow specific instructions on the laundry container for the recommended amount of detergent. Run a drain cycle if there are excess suds in the washer to clear out the system.

Pressure Switch or Control Boar

The pressure switch may not be communicating properly with the control board, which can cause the E20 error to occur. The other possibility for the E20 error code is if the control board has failed entirely. Try to reset the washing machine by pressing "Stop/Cancel" and disconnecting the washing machine power cord. Wait 30 seconds, then restore power. Make a new cycle selection and press "Start" to see if the error code returns. If it does, turn off the washing machine and contact Frigidaire for repair.

Thanks.

My Zanussi ZWF1658W washing mashine will not spin and drain the water it has a E20 error message on the display


I believe E20 is a blocked filter.

There should be a small door on the front of the machine almost at floor level.

BECAUSE THE MACHINE IS, I PRESUME FULL..... do this:

Unplug from mains
Tip machine backwards at about 45% so the water is not going to come gushing out of the filter when you remove it
Open the little door
remove and clean the filter
replace it
close door
put machine flat on floor agin
plug back in
start a cycle

Zanussi turbodry 1200 There was a first error message E20, while drying, so i stopped the proccess but now in a new washing cicle, i´ve the same error while filling Whatt is E20? what must i...


Hi

Error code e20 means a clogged drain pump. This might have happened 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. Tilt the machine on its side and remove the 3 screws and 2 wires that hold the pump in place. Hope this helps... Please post back for any further assistance.

Machine stops half way through program


One looses touch with all the codes available, but normally if washer stops mid cycle its due to a blocked or faulty drain pump. OR incomming water is to slow or defective inlet sensor. Switch off and start from the beginning. See if you can get machine to drain by moving the timer etc. If not, rectify pump problem. Take note where in the cycle the problem arises.

Hello,

Error code E20 relates to the pump/filter blocked.Drain the water either manually through the filter or drain hose.Check that filter is clean and pump can turn by hand.

E20 showing on display, machine still got water in


Hello,

E20 is related to the pump and as you say a strange noise is there I would check the filter for foreign objects.E90 is normally a communication problem between the main programmer and the display module.There may have been a fault in the pump which has caused a fault at the Programmer.That model was first produced in 2002 but it is worth checking pump and filter first.If you find anything in filter then clean it out and give it another go the E90 error may have been a glich.Best of luck.

Machine stopping mid cycle


Hello,
Count the number of green flashes(1st number of error code). count number of red flashes(2nd number of error code).
Common codes are:
E10 or 11 water pressure faults.
E20 filter/pump faults.
E30 pressure switch/heater faults.
E40 door switch faults.
E50 motor faults.
E60 Heater faults.
These are some of the error codes but there are many variations on some codes depending on the model.Hpoe this has been some help.

E20 fault display


Hello,
E20 is a fault either in the filter/pump or drain.
The water must be drained thru. the little hose by filter or get machine to back door and undo filter plug and drain onto back step its quicker.With filter out see if any blockages,shine torch up in filter hole turn to spin/drain and see if pump blade spins if not then get long screwdriver and turn blade to free if no joy pump has to come out to free,hopefully this will work and refit plug and check for leaks.Then try again.

Good luck.
