SOURCE: Frigidaire front load washer (LTF600ES1) Error E20

holla, Im not showing a E20 code on the tech sheet. There is a E21. Water not draining fast enough. Try holding the start/pause and cancel key together for 3 seconds. The door lock, wash, rinse and final spin leds should light. Any error codes should be displayed when holding those keys. If you see a different error code, post it. If not, I would suspect a clogged pump...Catriver.

most likely something is stuck in the pump. it could also be that you are not using high effiency detergent.

you have most likely a bra underwire stuck inbetween the tubs. usually it doesn't work itself all the way thru. with a flashlight, a pair of needle nose pliers and patience you should be able to find and extract it.

SOURCE: front loading washer does not advance past the rince cycle

Check and clean filter, it is usually located behind a plastic panel at the bottom front of the washer, remove cover and unscrew the filter cover anti clockwise, pull out and clean, replace and test, if it still does not drain, then possibly pump blocked or faulty.
Plz rate my solution.
Thanks.

SOURCE: GE Top load washing machine stop and stars during spin cycle

I had the same problem. The machine will do the washing cycle. At the start of the spin cycle it would start turning with a lot of clicking sounds and then would stop spinning. The water pump would continue working without problem. The motor tries to start again in about three minutes, however, repeats the same behavior. I have a reasonable mechanical and electrical knowledge. I was sure that the overload protection switch of the motor was tripping. I opened up my machine---a GE super capacity top loading machine. Took off the belt and turned the transmission pulley. It turned easily in both directions (washing and spinning). Hence, the transmission was good. Next, I checked any water accumulation in the spin tub. If the water is not drained properly before the spin cycle, it would overload the motor. There was no water clogged in the spin tub. Finally, I dismantled the electric motor. There was a clutch assembly underneath the motor pulley. I dismantled it and found the clutch very dirty with some grease that had turned sticky. I cleaned the assembly thoroughly with alcohol and assembled back the machine. The machine is running perfect after that. Conclusion: The clutch assembly was mis-functioning. Reason: When the spin cycle starts, the spin tub is very heavy and cannot achieve the full speed quickly. On the other hand, electric motors must get to their running speed fairly quickly or else overheating of motor would happen. A proper functioning clutch allows the motor to run at their optimal speed while transferring enough torque to the spin tub to slowly speed up the tub to its fullest. In my case, the clutch was sticky, thus overloading the motor which would trip as it overheats.

I have a frigadare affinity front loading washer and when i try to start a wash cycle the door locks and just as its ready to start running water it shuts off and if i go right behind that and just hit the...


Typically washing machines have a swtich in them that is pressure actuated, has a tube that goes up the cavity ( inside the outer tub ) and uses the water height to determine to shut off the water. If this hose is broken or something is plugged in it, it could think that it already has water or that its not filling at all (as long as its already started the water). Other wise I would make sure the washer knows the door is latched with some sort of indicator, because if the machine thinks the door is still open it will not fill.

Sounds like you have faulty water inlet valves. They may not be opening fully. You can test the power to the valves with a voltmeter to see if the power is quitting or if the valves are malfunctioning
