E20 error message

I am recving an E20 error message on my Frigidaire Affinity Front Load Washer, Model LTF6000FS0, yet my washer is is draining but it is not spinning. The motor is running but there is no movement in the tub. I had a repair guy come out and he moved some wires and it began to spin and it worked twice but I am running a load now and I am recving the E20 message and the tub is not spinning again. My washer is only 1.5 yrs old. The repair guy told me I may need a new control panel if the message comes back but that sounds expensive for a machine that is not even 2 yrs old. Any ideas?

Replace the control panel or have it repaired,there is no e20 listed as a trouble code,so it needs to be replaced.

To clear latest stored error code:

Place the control into Diagnostic test Mode.
  • Turn the program knob clockwise 9 clicks from the Start Position. The control will signal the last error code.
  • Press and hold the Options and Pause Cancel buttons for 3 seconds. The code will be cleared.
  • Exit Diagnostic Mode to return the washer to normal operation.

SOURCE: ERROR CODE E20

Just fixed mine, only I did not have to take it all a part. Just tip it over and reached in thru the opening in the bottom. Took the clamp loose with a phillips screwdriver and pulled the rubber off that contains the filter. Stuck my hand in the opening and pushed up on the filter from the bottom on the rubber container. Out came the filter and I cleaned it and pushed back down inside until it was past the lip that held it in place. Works great, took about 10 mins., not bad for a woman, huh. Thanks for the info, could not have done without your diagram and information.

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

Code E20


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.

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. The link below provides the detailed troubleshooting procedure of this error code. In addition, replace the drain pump after having found no problem with the drain hose, cleaned the filter, and checked the drain pump impeller but the drain pump just hums, buzzes or whirs.

My washer will not spin and posts E20 error


E20 means that there is a clog somewhere in the drain line. Check the hose, check the check valve at the pump, make sure nothing is clogged or stuck. It should not take you that long to find the problem.
