    My machine has done the same thing. Sometimes it runs fine but other times I have to wash and then run it on the drain and spin cycle.

    Same problem as others. I will add that the drain cycle appears to start and stop many times before the machine kicks off. Thanks.....

Plug off the wall first before these jobs. Remove rear panel.Check your filters and pump. Most probably you have a block in your pump. You have to drain out water from the machine by lowering the hose behind the machine to floor level, be prepared, bucket, etc. Dont forget to fix hose behind at very same position in wall drain. Your filter panel is in front bottom right of machine.

Things shd be fine, rate me pl.

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.

Washer fills washes will not spin or drain...get a code E20 .can drain it manually then it will complete is cycle.....sounds like the pump but how do i get to the pump


your machine is not emptying the water out of the unit and this is why you are getting the error code 20 you would have to check the drain pump and the drain line that connects to the pump itself in order to properly alleviate this issue If you have any further questions message me back and please remember to rank how this opinion has helped it allows me to continue to help others in similar situations in the future Thanks again Rick

Door on washing machine is locked with e20 code


This particular code is used when the machine detects a pump problem or water draining problem. In this case, the fault would occurr just before attempting to spin. It turned out to be a blocked filter, accessible from the bottom front of the machine. so the best thing to do is clean the filter on the front of the machine open the flap and undo the filter water will come out so be ready for that. after it is cleaned and filter all back in and secure switch machine back on at plug and run cycle this should fix it. hope this helps.
Here are some error codes for future problems. E10 - not filling
E20 - not draining
E40 - door open
EFO - Filter blocked

MY WASHING MACHINE HAS STOPPED 28 MINUTES THROUGH THE WASH CYCLE. ITS SHOWING UP E20 ERROR. ITS FULL OF WASHING AT THE MOMENT


Hi!

Error E20 means there is a problem with water draining. Please check the drain hose which may be kinked or squashed or the drain pump may be blocked. Another possible cause is totally blocked filter which is required to be cleaned to resolve the issue.

Thanks for using FixYa and revert for further assistance.

Thanks

Stops at 23 mins with error code e 20


E20 is a draining problem. the first thing to check is the filter at front of machie as there may be something blocking the pump.
Before removing filter tilt machine back and place a bowl under as there will be water inside.
Thanks for using Fixya.

Washer continuously fills but drains at the same time during rinse cycle.


you have the drain pipe too low into tthe house drain pipe, raise the washers drain pipe up , you only need four inches down into the hous drain

also the house drain pipe needs to be as high as the lid of the machine before you put the washer drain tube into the house drain

you have a syphoning effect

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.

Regards,
David

Check water "forreign object trap". It's under the lid at the bottom of the machine. First drain water by pulling out the hose and pull out the plug. Then unscrew the trap. Have had this E20 error twice. First it was two coins there, next it was a big paperclip. Have worked fine ever since.11_20_2011_8_57_27_am.jpg
