Re: frigidaire affinity front loading washer
Any E20 code means your washer doesn't drain. More than likely there is a screw, nail, coin, bobby pin, etc locking up your pump and causing it not to drain. Keep in mind that your washer has a 1 yr warranty but some service companys will charge for this kind of repair because it is not technically covered under warranty.

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.

Reading Error Codes
1. Wake the washer by pressing any button.
2. Wait 5 seconds.
3. Press and hold the START/PAUSE and CANCEL
buttons simultaneously. As long as the buttons are
held, the failure code will appear in the display as
an “E” followed by two numbers, a number and a
letter or two letters. The control will beep and the
Door Lock, Wash, Rinse, and Final Spin indicator
lights will flash.
If you open the top of the washer , there is a "tech" sheet in there to tell you how to reset the error codes.
My washer started this. Then stopped spinning. Now it will not even wash a load. It stops mid-cycle. The ER 20 means that something is not draining right. We checked all of the tubes leading to the pump. Nothing was clogged. The technition seems to think it is a motor controller error.
