How do you fix e20 code

Hello John, thanks for your inquiry!

From my understanding your Frigidaire front load washer is displaying an error code of "E20" and you would like to know how to fix it. An "E20" code stands for water is not pumping out fast enough this could be a problem with your drain hose, pump, or control panel. I would suggest checking the drain line to make sure it is not restricted. If the line looks clear it could be a problem with your drain pump or control panel. I would recommend seeking assistance from a professional technician for proper repairs. I hope this information is helpful. -Matt

What does the code on frigdiaire front loader?

Hello Friend, this is Z. I appreciate your post!

I understand your Frigidaire washer is showing error code E20. First, check the drain hose for any restrictions or kinks. If you have check the hose and it appears to be clear and free, then potentially the underlying issue may be the main control board or pump. Generally it is a good idea to have a professional take a look at it to get to the root cause. Cost of parts and technical expertise entailed in these types of replacements can be a bit tricky.

I have a Kenmore Elite washer, model 44092. The machine won't spin and the error code is E20. What is wrong with it?

The machine, based on the error code, is made by Frigidaire for Kenmore. Error code E20 pertains to a slow or no drain problem 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.

What does e20 mean? The display shows an error of e20. Looks like the water is not pumping out during the regular wash.


Error code e20 means a clogged drain pump. This might have happenned due to small clips, pins, coins, etc being stuck in the pump. Please note that error e20 can also occur when the drain pump is not pumping fast enough or when the pump fails. To fix the issue you'll need to check the drain pump.
Remove the 2 screws from the bottom of the front access panel, it will come off. Now check for the pump on the right side and remove hoses from it. Remove pump from machine then remove whatever is there in the pump.

Please post back for any further assistance.


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.

How do I take my Affinity washer apart to fix an E20 clog problem

E20 = Clogged drain pump.

Tools I used: vice grips, both phillips and standard screw drivers, flash light and an 8mm socket with ratchet.

I solved this problem by removing the rear oval type cover by removing the 6 phillips screws that hold it on, but first thing is to unplug the machine! I unplugged the electrical connection going to the pump. Then I removed the hose closest to me by removing the pinch clamp with a pair of vice grips. Then I removed the two screws holding the pump down to the frame of the washer (8mm socket). Then I removed the farthest hose by removing the pinch clamp with the vice grips. Once this was done I took out the pump. The hose entering the pump contained a sock, debit card and thirty-five cents!

Once I removed all of the debris I reversed the order but this time I used an automotive hose clamp which makes re-assemble waaay easier!!! (Saves about 30 mins) Total repair time took me 1 hour, but if you use an aftermarket hose clamp instead of the pinch clamp on the hose coming into the pump this will save you at least 30 minutes because it is soo difficult to put back on because of the tight space.

One-hour, a minor cut and $2.35 for the clamps later all is fixed!

E20 Error

On the sheet, 2 beeps and error E20 says Water Doesn't Drain. Drain hose is kinked or household drain is clogged. Straighten hoses or unclog household drain.
