Maytag Epic Z washing machine F20 error

We were replacing our water pump system and boiler, which created a lot of sediment in our water lines. Once we had everything working again, I tried to run my washing machine and the hot water was working, but not the cold water. We removed the intake water hoses cleared, could not find the screens to clean that and still no cold water coming into the machine. Any suggestions?

F-20 error code its water inlet problem (no water or insufficient water supply) check your washer inlets, maybe the water valves are off or you don't have enough water pressure.

    I have the same issue. I have replaced the water inlet unit inside the machine where the 2 hoses connect. That didn't solve issue. If I have hoses on correctly and choose cold wash, I get F20, but If I put hot hose on cold inlet and cold hose on hot inlet, then run a HOT cycle, it washes clothes in cold water, no problems as cold water is hooked to hot inlet. Any ideas?

    It turns out that after I unplugged all wires from the main computer and then plugged them all back in, that the washer worked fine after putting it back together and no more issues. the only other thing I did was drain the pipe at the bottom of the washer behind the kick plate. But I think it was the wire connections on the main computer board that fixed the issue.

We have checked the inlets and they are clear. We also replaced the pressure switch and it did not fix it. Do you have any other items to check?

F20 error code on maytag epic any idea what this means?


F20 means that the unit isn't detecting water is entering the machine quick enough. When the error code appears if there is little to no water in the tub, then you have an issue with either the water supply to the washing machine or the electronic water valve. If the washing machine fills up about 1/2 way up the door and is overfilling with the water, it means that your pressure switch is faulty and will need to be replaced because it's not detecting that water is entering the machine.

Error F20 always out of order Maytag washing machine Mod. MAH22PNAGWO


F-20 is almost always gonna be a clogged pump. Remove the service panel and the tech sheet is behind it. The filter is also down there. Remove the filter and see if stuff is in there. Water might come out so have a way to catch it.

It flash 2 then 0 and it wont drain or spin the clothes


F20 error code indicates no water detected entering the washer. Be sure the drain hose is not down too far into the drain stand pipe & both hot & cold water is turned on & working.

New maytag 5000 series is showing f20 error


you have every right to be frustrated. Maytag is actually one of the best when it comes to reliability so hopefully, once it is fixed you will not have a problem again for a very long time.

I recommend that you file a formal complaint with Maytag. Here is the link to the formal complaint form

Kenmore HE2T F20 plus Water leakage when tub starts to fill


Have you read by advice on how to diagnose this problem? Click on the following link:

http://www.fixya.com/support/r1491905-f20_error_code_whirlpool_duet_kenmore

If you HAVE water entering the wash tub, first verify that you do not have a siphoning condition. This is where the drain line does not have the proper air gap to drain properly and creates a vacuum on the drain line. This will cause drain problems and may prevent the washer from filling all the way. Or, you may have trouble maintaining the water level. When you stated you had water leaking, is this a visible leak? Or, do you have water slowly draining from the tub? Double check your drain line to be sure.

Next, check the drain pump to ensure it is not clogged or obstructed which minimizes drain flow. Also, make sure the pump is running. Remove the access cover and clean out the pump reservoir. In addition, check the drain line from the bottom of the wash tub to the inlet side of the drain pump. I have personally found small articles of clothing stuck in this line, preventing drain flow.

Read through the link thoroughly. If you require additional assistance, please let me know before rating the solution. I hope this helps you.
