Error code 03 followed sometimes by Error code 16
Check the usual drain pump and resistance of heating element
On my machine I've discovered that on the motor if the brushes are not bedded onto the commutator it will cause the above codes to display and stop the machine.
The problem is not related to the drain pump or heating element so the codes displayed are not correct. If the brushes are not bedded to the commutator the motor cannot get to spin speed but will happily wash away. Watch the machine during a quick wash to ensure it does actually spin
E:04" on the washing machine. Check to ensure there is no water in the tub. This is a common error often associated with too many suds blocking the pump. It is caused by using the wrong laundry detergent which is not designed for high-efficiency washers. You can adjust your use of detergent and reset the machine to eliminate the error code.
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.
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.
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.
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.
On my AEG Lavamat 62810, when I turn on a wash cycle a motor (pump?) runs for 10–20 seconds then the machine switches off, with no error message. When this happened a few weeks agao running a drain cycle seemed to cure it; now the same thing happens on spin/drain/rinse cycles too. Any ideas?
On the front of the machine is a round access port. Insert a paper clip into the tiny hole and push in, rotate this cover clockwise. Access cover should come right off, now unscrew the plug covering the drain assembly, have lots of towels nearby, or a wet dry vac ready, a lot of water will come gushing out, after you have cleaned up the water find the source of the obstruction within the pump and remove the obstruction. Assembly is the reverse of removal. E04 means that it's taking to long for the pump to pump the water out, it's usually caused by foreign matter within the pump housing, whole infant socks have been know to get lodged in these pumps. Hope this helps.
