ZANUSSI JETSTREAM, CODE E20 appears with every wash near the end of cycle


Hi,
E20 is a draining error.
Check the filter.You need to take the filter out, empty it of all lint and replace it. It may have water trapped in already, so get a cloth ready to soak up excess liquid! Also, make sure when you put it back in you have tightened it enough to avoid leaking but not too much that you cannot get it back out
If still the problem persists then the problem is with the draining pump.Replace it and this wont come again

Thank You

Why can i not get the dryer to work? error E20 is flashing.


HI,
Can you hear the pump trying to drain it when you start a cycle? If not it needs a new pump.

Is there a block in the drainage pipe (blow down it and see if it bubbles in the filter compartment). Or a block in the drain - try pouring some water down in.

Otherwise, I had the same problem (an E20 but a clean filter, no blockage and working pump) and it turned out the condenser (a large plastic vessel) or the right side of the machie (you have to take the whole back off) was full of fluff. The engineer just used a wire hanger and ran it under water to clean it out.

If you've found that it hasn't been drying the clothes fully recently that could well be the problem.

Check the drain hose, and inspect the filter for any foreign object.


I report :"E20 means your fluff filter / waste pipe is getting blocked and themachine cannot pump out the water. Try unblocking the fluff filterfirst at the bottom of the machine. This should work, if the faultappears again though and the fluff filter is clean your waste pipe isblocked and you need to flush this through. Can you tell what I've justspent my weekend doing, I have had to get the most unbelievable amountof limescale out of these 2 areas but machine is now working fine again."

E20 normally means there is a blockage in the drain tube/filter. I have the same problem, but the drain tube is clear. I have searched the web and found the solution being down to the "plastic bottle-like condensor having debris/fluff in it".

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
