How can I reset my electrolux washing machine afer an E20 error?

I have an electrolux EWF 1282. I got an E20 error at the end of program. Washing was still wet. Took out filter and cleaned. Put filter back. Wanted to start the program again but it just makes a ''humming'' noice as if water is not coming in and program does not start. Technician came out when still under warrenty and he basically reset it. How would I reset the machine. thank you kindly

Turn the dial to off. Press and hold the start pause and the nearest option button. While you're holding them down, turn the dial one notch clockwise.
The machine will beep or flash, let go of the buttons. Release the buttons, then turn the dial slowly, stopping at each click until you get to "off". Now, turn to any setting, then turn to off.

Now, try the machine. If it works, I'm very happy. If not, perhaps someone else can help.
Good Luck

Hello terry_gwen - Based on the symptoms you are describing, you may either have a communication error from the main control board or the timer itself may not be operating correctly. I understand that the filter has been cleaned, however, if you noticed a humming noise, it could either be a clogged drainage hose, or it could possibly have another issue with the door lock assembly. I would personally contact a professional to accurately diagnose the washer to determine the root cause to reduce the risk of unnecessary parts.


How do i reset an electrolux 1080

E20 is an error code for a drain pump issue. The error will reset itself if the issue has been resolved. If it or another code continued to appear, then the unit has not been accurately fixed.

Wat is code for e20 on a ewf 1080

E20 error code measn blocked filter. Removing the blocked filter you have to remove the water from inside by using the small flexible tube which located next to the filter at the right bottom of the machine. Then the only think it still remains was to unscrew and clear the filter.

Hope helps.

E20 is difficulties in draining for washing. which can be drain tube kinked or blocked, drain filter clogged or dirty or the pump impeller behind filter is getting jammed by a coin or cotton or anything wrapped around it, remove filter and look at back of hole and see if impeller will turn use a long screwdriver to turn it, obviously with the power off
