When washer turns on there is a horrible buzzing sound, e 20 error message was on before

This is a blocked drain error code (E20) which can be due to a clogged/kinked drain hose, blocked drain filter/coin trap, or a broken drain pump. The link below provides the detailed troubleshooting procedure of this error code. In addition, replace the drain pump after having found no problem with the drain hose, cleaned the filter, and checked the drain pump impeller but the drain pump just hums, buzzes or whirs.

What does e20 mean on a zanussi electrolux progress 1200 hydrosystem

The error e20 indicates towards pump.The pump needs to be checked. The pump is blocked or broken.e20 is a not draining error code,check filter at bottom.could be faulty pump or something jammed in the impeller. --------------------------

You have a blockage in the drain hose I would suspect.

Keep putting it on drain till you get the water out or simply lower the drain hose into a wash basin.

Once it's empty, put a couple of towels down, unplug the machine and lay it carefully onto it's left side. Left side viewed from the front. (turn off the water first and disconnect the fill hose if necessary).

You can now take the drain hose off of the pump and take it out of the appliance to check for a blockage.If no blockage, you'll need to take the pump out and check that too.

Check the hose first.Also check for any small cloth getting blocked in the machine inside.

To remove the pump,It's clipped into the base.Look at the underside of the base.Squeeze the clips together and push them into the base a little.You can then slide the pump out of the filter housing.Watch for the O ring as this has to go back on to seal the pump.The pump slides in and out.

You'll only need to unplug the wiring.If hose or pump checked out faulty then it has to be replaced,if filter is clogged clean it.

AEG oko Diplomat E Update frontloader. Error message blinks E20. What should I do?

Error code E20 indicates that water cannot be pumped out of the machine. Possible causes:
  1. Sieve filter is blocked. Open the sieve lid, (lower right of machine) and clean.
  2. Drain tube bent or blocked. Check for bends and straighten the tube, open hose band clips and check inside for objects or dirt.
  3. Some small object (coin, children's toy, ...) blocks the drain pump. Pump needs to be dismantled and cleaned.
#1 and #2 you should be able to do yourself. With a little aptitude for repairs, you can do the fix #3 yourself, too. If you don't trust yourself to get all parts back together, let a service technician do the repair for you.

Hi, my washing machine is stopping frequently and E20 is flashing on the screen. What does that mean? Thanks! Ann

The drain pump and filter jammed.error E20.The drain pump getting blocked. Plug off the mains. You have to look for screws below the front kick-panel, you can raise the machine a bit to gain access to the screws, the panel comes down & out. You may find a drain hose here, on left, drain off the excess water. The pump is on the right side. Be prepared for dirty water. Inside the big flexible tube (coming from the tub bottom) is the filter, be prepared to find all sorts of junk here, clean out.Examine your pump also, clean out the impeller. Carefully refit all. Your machine would be fine. Don’t wait for the machine to jam to look into your filter. cleaning the filter is no easy task.
1. First, make sure you have super glue on hand, the door seal is glued to the front panel, will have to be removed first then glued back in place. Using a sharp knife, carefully begin peeling the door seal and cutting the glue close to the cabinet. Do this slowly as to not damage the door seal.
2. Remove top cover. Screws are in the back
3. Remove control console.
4. Remove screws securing the door lock. Remove all front panel screws. Remove front panel.
5. Attached to the tub there is a large, fat drain hose, inside the hose you will find a filter.

Error code e20 means a clogged drain pump. This might have happenned 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 clean the debris from the pump. Make sure that you have a container to collect water nearby when you are removing hoses from the pump, as ther would be a lot of water. Please post back for any further assistance.

This will help.

E20 message

Hi Helenw,
The error message E20, simply means the filter plastic cage which is located behind the trap door bottom right side of the machine is full and needs to be cleaned out.
All the fibres and lint gets trapped in here and prevents the waste water from escaping, hence Error code E20.
