E20 means the drain hose is plugged or kinked or the household drains are plugged. YOur washer will not drain and spin until this is fixed.

turn off the washer/unplug it/remove the drain hose and check for a clog. If it is there, clean it out. If not - check your sinks and toilets for slow running drains. The garbage disposal is a good place to start as well. plug the sink, fill it with hot water, then pull the plug and start the disposal. That will help clean the disposal and also show you if you have a drainage problem there. Plunge the toilets, etc.

Good luck to you!

What do I need to do when my front loader is giving me E20 code


Hey Kim, thank you for your post!

From what you have described your Frigidaire washer is displaying an error code of E20. I am not showing that as a valid error code and I would recommend performing a reset on your washer. You can reset your washer by disconnecting power from it for at least ten minutes. If you continue to experience issues with that error code please respond back and additionally provide me with your model number. You can locate your serial tag (which lists your model number) on the door frame of the washer. Once I have that information I would be able to further assist you. I look forward to helping you further. -Matt

good day,
no idea for the E20 error coz all brand have diff error code?
call the service center what the exactly the E20 error?
check in the manual for the error code most of washing machine if the error code is in users manual its means its only minor problem,but if the error code is not in users manual its means you need to call an service technician to not waste your money or time if you do by your self.

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

I have a Kenmore Elite washer, model 44092. The machine won't spin and the error code is E20. What is wrong with it?


The machine, based on the error code, is made by Frigidaire for Kenmore. Error code E20 pertains to a slow or no drain problem 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.

My washer does not drain or spin. I get an E20 error code everytime we use it.


Hi-I am just another owner. The E20 code means that the waste (drain) line has an obstruction. This can be the hose kinked, or in my case it was a frozen waste line. In my case the _1160.jpgsolution was thawing the drain pipe...you might be lucky to find it is a kink or chunk of something plugging your output drain. Good luck! FYI-I got this info from the Error code chart that was a single sheet packed with the manual of my washer. I will try to attach a copy of the English part if I can get it to the limited size accepted here for attachment. (well, that is not where I intended the chart to go, but I hope you can read it!)

Error codes E20


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.
