Frigidaire front load washer (LTF600ES1) Error E20

Can someone please tell me what error E20 means and how to fix it? It comes up within 10 minutes of the wash cycle. I removed all the clothes from the machine and pressed start. It tries to drain water and will not go past this cycle. If I set the washer to spin only it will drain and spin in that setting, but not when washing. Thanks in advance for any help. Washer will start alarming like the cycle is done, but when I look at the display it reads, E20 and the door won't unlock. I have to unplug the machine and try to fool it into starting another load, then pause/canceling it. I noticed that the fabric softener is still in the compartment. How can I get it up and running again. If something is clogged, how can I get to it? They are stacked with the dryer on top, so it would be extremely difficult getting to it- do not have any help around to move both the machines. I want to get caught up on laundry. HELP!

Your washer is not draining properly. You need to check if the drain hose is kinked and also whether the household drain is running smoothly.

    You are going to need some extra muscle and a moving cart to pull the stack out from the wall and you will have to be very careful. You will need to use a strap to wrap around your machines (one on each) and then to the moving appliance very snugly.You are not going to be able to do it alone. Then once you have checked out the hose ( actually pull the hose out of the drain and check out both lint and drain for debris) you are going to have to be very careful to make sure all connetions on dryer and washer are secure again before you push it back into place. Before you do this which is the hard part I would check out all of my household drains, using a plunger and make sure they are running fast and clean. I hope this helps. Just Please do not try to do it alone. You could hurt yourself or damage your machines. And remeber when you are working with the drain to unplug your washer and dryer!

    Are you on a city water system or a septic system? There could be a general drainage problem if you are on a septic.

What do i do when my washer affinity frigidaire displays E20


Hello friend, thank you for your post!

I see your question is labeled under Frigidaire washer, ATF6000ES, and your washer is receiving an error code of "E20". "E20" stands for the water is not pumping out fast enough which means it could be an issue with your control panel or drain pump. I would recommend having a professional come out and properly repair your appliance. I hope this is helpful. -Matt

Frigidaire front load washer (ATF6000SF1) error E20


E20 is not an exact error code. It's indicating a possible pump out problem. Here is a few possible causes of an E20 error code:

1. Restriction in the drain pump

2. Failed pump

3. Water not pumping out fast enough (crimped drain hose)

4. Too many suds ( too much detergent or wrong kind)

5. Pressure switch (not communicating with control board)

6. Loose wire at pressure switch

7. Loose wire at pump or control board

8. Failed control board

What does the error message E20 on the frigidaire front load washer GLTF2940FS mean?


Hello - The error code "E20" typically means the water is not draining properly or not pumping out fast enough. Does the washer making a humming noise? If so, either the drain hose may be kinked or the drain in the house is clogged. Once you have confirmed and cleaned the hose and issue continues contact a professional to move forward accurately. The unit may possibly have a faulty pump or control board.

My frigadare front loader has code E20 on it and won't drain out all water from clothes or drum


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.
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. Hope this helps... Please post back for any further assistance.
