Hello - The error code "E20" typically means the water is not draining properly or not pumping out fast enough. Does the washer making a humming noise? If so, either the drain hose may be kinked or the drain in the house is clogged. Once you have confirmed and cleaned the hose and issue continues contact a professional to move forward accurately. The unit may possibly have a faulty pump or control board.

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.

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.

SOURCE: I have a Frigidaire Gallery front load washer with E10 error code

When ours does that it is because of the hard water build up. We have to un-hook the hot water clean out the minerals and it stops doing it.

SOURCE: My frigidaire front laod washer has an E20 error

E20 error is known for pump out issue.The first thing I recommend is to take off the front bottom cover(below the door) tilt the washer back some,remove the clamps and hoses from the drain pump.It should be on your right hand side.Check the pump and hose to remove the clogging.This tends to be a common problem with Frigidaire front loaders.Now when you all done with that put it back together and do a test run.

What do i do when my washer affinity frigidaire displays E20

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

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

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.

E20 Error Code

Greetings jeanne1568,

Other consumers have reported this error message and found it relates to your "Coin trap assembly" being blocked, therefore not allowing all the water to pump out. The suggestion out there is to remove the front access panel, and remove the clamp that connects this trap assembly to the pump and clean it out.

I hope this helps.
