Question about Frigidaire ATF6000ES Front Load Washer
This code E20 tells that the drain is blocked. Check the drain hose for clogs and kinks then clear it. There is also a filter located inside the big black hose, the tub-to-pump hose, that runs from the bottom of the tub to the drain pump. It can be accessed through the bottom front panel and can be taken out for cleaning.
Remove the screws attaching the bbottom front panel to the cabinet then pull the panel down and off. Prop up the front bottom edge of the washer or cushion and lean it against the wall to access the screws more easily. Loosen the clamp securing the tub-to-hose pump to the bottom of the tub then take the filter out and remove the debris. You should find foreign objects such as coins, toothpicks, hairpins and the likes blocking the filter. Clear the filter from the foreign objects and inspect the pump impeller by turning it with your finger. The impeller may be restricted or damaged resulting in the water not pumped out properly. Replace the pump if the impeller is broken or restricted and doesn't turn freely. Reassemble the machine by following the steps above in reverse order.
When installing the filter in the coin trap, the top ring of the filter MUST be seated in the 3rd convolution from the bottom.
