You are experiencing a pump issue. Typically a professional is needed to :

1. Check the drain hose for restrictions. Restriction, correctproblem. No restriction, go to step (2).2. Start the washer and checkfor 120VAC at the drain pump.Zero, replace the Main Control Board. 120VAC, remove the pump and checkit for blockage. If blocked, remove the restriction, if not, replace the pump.

IF there is an E attached to the 45, it is your control board and the control board would need to be replaced. This is per the "Washer Tech Data Sheet"Hope that helps...

SOURCE: Frigidaire Front loading washer error codes E41 and E20

Hi
E20 is a drainage error. If there is water in the drum make sure the discharge pipe at the back of the machine is not kinked or blocked. You should also check the pump filter is not clogged - this is behind the front panel underneath the drum at the front of the machine.

E41 = Control board thinks the door switch is open. This points towards a faulty door switch on the machine.

Hope this helps. Please remember to rate my answer. Many thanks.

SOURCE: ATF6000ES front load washer won't spin during regular cycle.

clogged filter will cause this error code. I have the same washer and the filter located inside the rubber boot attached to the pump was full of junk. there was enough room for water to get thru but not enough for full volume. clean it out and it should work. note : its a pain to get the boot back on so be ready and take it slow. this worked for me.

What does the code on frigdiaire front loader?


Hello Friend, this is Z. I appreciate your post!

I understand your Frigidaire washer is showing error code E20. First, check the drain hose for any restrictions or kinks. If you have check the hose and it appears to be clear and free, then potentially the underlying issue may be the main control board or pump. Generally it is a good idea to have a professional take a look at it to get to the root cause. Cost of parts and technical expertise entailed in these types of replacements can be a bit tricky.

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

My washing maching is reading E20 and it is not washing. it seems to stop after a few minutes of washing and then it will read E20 and just continuosly beep


Hello.

Frigidaire front-loading washing machines have an electronic control panel where the wash cycle and any other wash options are selected, and the wash cycle is initiated and stopped, if necessary. The control panel also has indicator lights that show the washer status and will display an error code if there are issues with the washer. The "E20" error code indicates a possible pump problem.

Blocked Pump

One of the primary reasons why there may be an "E20" error code on a Frigidaire front-loading washing machine is if there is something blocking the pump. Disconnect the washing machine from the power and release the clips on each side to remove the front access panel. Set a container under the pump drain, which is located on the lower right side of the washing machine. Open the pump drain plug and allow it to drain. Clean out any debris that might be causing the obstruction, then close the drain plug. Close the access panel and restore power to the washer.

Drain Hose

If the drain hose is blocked or crimped, the water may not pump out fast enough, causing the pump error to appear on the display. Straighten out the drain hose in the rear of the washing machine and move it away from the washer if it's trapped between the wall and the washing machine.

Oversudsing

If too much detergent--or the wrong kind of detergent--is used in the washing machine, too many suds may result. This can overwhelm the drain and pump system, resulting in the error. Use only high efficiency (HE) laundry detergent with Frigidaire washing machines and follow specific instructions on the laundry container for the recommended amount of detergent. Run a drain cycle if there are excess suds in the washer to clear out the system.

Pressure Switch or Control Boar

The pressure switch may not be communicating properly with the control board, which can cause the E20 error to occur. The other possibility for the E20 error code is if the control board has failed entirely. Try to reset the washing machine by pressing "Stop/Cancel" and disconnecting the washing machine power cord. Wait 30 seconds, then restore power. Make a new cycle selection and press "Start" to see if the error code returns. If it does, turn off the washing machine and contact Frigidaire for repair.

Thanks.

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 Frigidaire Affinity front loading washing machine is reading an E20 error code when in the spin cycle. It stops the cycle and I have to push cancel and put it in a spin only cycle to get it to spin,...


Hi - Im not familiar with your particular washer but will try & help you as best as I could, am a Miele - F&Paykel - Electrolux specialist..

Based on your observations I would first have a look at the drain pump for any restrictions, a lot of the front loaders have an acess panel where you could open up to remove coins,pins and others that find its way to the pump. Failing this the side panels are removeable to gain .. pumps etc.

E20 could be the fact the sensors recognize that water is still in the machine prior to going into the extract/spin cycle.

I hope this may help you in some way..

JUST MAKE SURE YOU DISCONNECT THE POWER FROM WALL BEFORE YOU HAVE A LOOK.....

Good luck

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.

Does not wash cycle through reads error code E20


I am not a repair professional. I am just a 78 year old man who has been making his own repairs for about 50 years. Therefore the washer ID doesn't mean
anything to me. It's been about 55 years since I had experience with front load washers. However I can refer you to www.applianceaid.com where they have very good trouble shooting and repair information on front loaders. You can search for the meaning of the error code on the site. I think you'll find what you need there. Don't worry about the timer, they hardly ever go bad. Good luck with it. If I have helped you, please rate my advice on fixya.

Frigidaire front loader washing machine won't spin...


The problem is a faulty Door Latch Assembly. The same thing happened to my Frigidaire front load washer. The part is easy to install, costs about 60 dollars and can be picked up at most appliance repair stores . To access the switch just remove the wire around the front drum gasket, peel back the rubber gasket beside the switch assembly then remove the two screws holding it in place. remove the three wire connector blocks and swap in the new switch. My washer was giving me error code 41 witch is a faulty control board. But the problem was in fact only the switch...
