Question about Frigidaire Washing Machines
Hi from retired Englishman in SW France,
Sorry, I do not have the list of decodes for your particular washer BUT (no promises!) I would gently suggest as a first step that you clean the drain motor lint tray/filter. So many 'faults' are caused by blocked filters and many machines will not even go to spin or release the door lock if there is any water still left inside. It's also a good habit to check the filter regularly anyway!
Here are my complete guidance notes for checking both the drain motor filter and the drain motor ;-0)
If you are unsure where the filter is, it is often behind the front lower (kick) panel (or in some machines at the rear in an awkward position!) and most are held in by a round cover/knob. Sometimes the filter will not come out with the cover and you will have to persuade it to come out to play!
REMOVE POWER AND ENSURE YOU HAVE A WATER RECEPTACLE/RAGS TO SOAK UP THE WATER WHICH IS BOUND TO POUR OUT!
It's surprising what people have found in theirs! It is always worthwhile checking it on a regular basis.
Now- whilst the filter is removed it is normally possible to see the drain motor and ensure it is not jammed by a foreign object such as a needle or a toothpick. It should be able to be turned by hand/finger- the power IS OFF!
At this point it is also possible to test if the motor works. No clothes or water in the machine, select a spin cycle and put the power back on. You should be able to see the motor turning at some point, possibly straight away. If it doesn't work then the motor is malfunctioning!
Hope the filter is the problem and good luck!

Hello John, thanks for your inquiry!
From my understanding your Frigidaire front load washer is displaying an error code of "E20" and you would like to know how to fix it. An "E20" code stands for water is not pumping out fast enough this could be a problem with your drain hose, pump, or control panel. I would suggest checking the drain line to make sure it is not restricted. If the line looks clear it could be a problem with your drain pump or control panel. I would recommend seeking assistance from a professional technician for proper repairs. I hope this information is helpful. -Matt

Thank you for your inquiry, B.paddock!
From what you have described your Frigidaire washer is displaying an "E20" code and once the cycle is completed the clothes are still wet. Typically, an "E20" code stands for the water is not pumping out fast enough. You should check your drain hose to make sure they are not restricted or clogged. If your hose is fine it could be a possible issue with your main control board or drain pump. I would then suggest contacting a professional technician for proper disassembly of your washer and replacement of the electrical components. If you do not have a professional connection you can visit your manufacturer's website to locate a technician in your surrounding area. I hope this information is helpful. -Matt

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
