SOURCE: Error code 20

I am a woman who is pretty house/mechanically handy (esp. having been an electronics and computer tech in the Navy some years back), and today, I was able to fix this issue on my 1-year old Frigidaire Affinity front-loader. The issue is, in fact, a clogged drain pump. It happens because there is a small white basket located inside the pump and drain mechanism, and it collects debris and things like hair, etc. as it drains the dirty water from your machine.
Here is what you'll have to do, and it's a pain (and time consuming), but it will save you several hundred bucks for a service call. I was able to accomplish the whole job with a mid-sized phillipshead screwdriver, a pair of needle-nose pliers, a flashlight (a must!) an adjustable wrench, a two-by-four piece of wood and some paint cans (to prop up the machine to make it easier to work on), a bunch of towels (to clean up the water that leaks out of the drain hoses and pump), a couple of hours--and glasses of wine to keep me from kicking the thing apart.
On the newer models of this machine, there is no bottom front access panel. This is what makes your job a pain in the you-know-what. You can reach the pump through the back round access panel (although it's a tight fit), but the problem is the pump contains a series of clamps, the most notable of which is a screw-clamp the assemblers have assembled with the screw-tightener facing toward the front of the machine. You might be able to loosen it enough with a pair of needle nose pliers from the back access panel area, but if you cannot, see my additional info below.
Try this first:
1. Once you UNPLUG THE ELECTRICAL PLUG (a little CYA for the dense), put the paint cans under the back corners of the machine. This is really going to help you reach the area you have to work in--otherwise you will wreck your neck and back. You'll then remove the smaller round access panel from the back, to see the pump located beneath the wash drum and belt drive. It's black, rubber, and attached to a series of drain hoses and the motor with a few clamps (mostly green in color on my machine). Assuming you are able to reach the pump and loosen the screw clamp coming from the main tub drain (it's waaaay behind the tub and a complete pain to get to--either from the front OR the back, so try first to loosen the screw from behind with some needle nose pliers).
2. Next, you need to remove all the drain clamps and hoses and unscrew the motor from the bottom baseplate of the washing machine. You'll need to also unclip the electrical line from the motor and place it up and out of the way (I just put it in the belt) so it won't get wet. JUST DON'T FORGET TO RETURN IT TO THE MOTOR DURING REASSEMBLY. The screws are located on either side of the motor casing and are black, so the flashlight comes in handy. Unscrewing the motor from the baseplate first makes removing and replacing the clamps much easier.
3. Remove the black pump and drain mechanism and the motor. Make sure there is nothing in the motor housing (just in case). You'll note that once you dump the collected water from the pump, there should be a white plastic round basket with holes inside the pump unit. It might be set into the large mouth of the pump, but it might have also been forced into the large open body of the pump over time. It also might be so clogged with stuff that it is unrecognizable at first, but you need to pull it out, clean it out, and wash the whole unit out with bleach water or CLR and water. As an aside, you'll probably want to do the same to the inside and outside grey drain hoses while you're at it. You can remove the inside grey drain hose by unscrewing it at the upper left exit panel, lifting the plastic catch up off the access panel, and unclipping it from inside holding clips in the machine. I also, as a precaution, took a wire hanger and ran it through to make sure nothing was caught in either of them (I have three teenagers, so you never know).
4. Once you clean the whole unit out, replace the white filter basket by placing it into the large mouth of the pump. It ought to fit in that recess perfectly. Also, ***note this***: before you replace the pump, go ahead and replace the grey inside drain hose onto the pump. It's much easier to clamp on while the pump/motor unit is still outside of the machine housing than once you've put it back in!
5. Now is the hard part! You have to replace the remaining clamps and hose lines. A ****second note****: I decided to go ahead and remove the screw-clamp and place it backwards so that I could reattach and tighten it from behind next time (having had to remove the front panel and electrical work to access it in the first place....see note below). I won't lie to you--it's a complete PITA. You have to make sure the lip of the pump opening is set high enough to that part of the washdrum that when you tighten it back on, it is water-tight and cannot slip back off. I used the needle nose pliers to help push it up further. It also is pretty hard to reach, and the belt-drive housing has a sharp edge to it that can gouge your arm while you're doing it. Anyhow, replace the screw-clamp part of the pump first, and it will make it easier to do the rest, as it will hold the pump in place. You may need to twist it tight as much as possible by hand, then use a phillipshead and/or needle nose pliers to tighten it the rest of the way. It ought to be tight enough that if you pull on the black rubber drain unit, it won't cause that part to slip back off. Next, you need to replace the upper left smaller hose-connection (next to the large opening of the pump with the screw-clamp). You'll probably want to push the clamp up onto the white opening, return the rubber pump connector to it, and then reclamp down (much easier than trying to clamp it from the bottom). It's a pain because there's only so much room for your hands, and you cannot really get the clamp on straight at that angle without a lot of patience.
6. Once you've replaced the pump lines, go ahead and screw the motor back onto the bottom of the machine. Also, DON'T forget to re-attach the electrical line to the motor. Replace the outer grey hose with its respective clamp, screw the back access panel back in, and you're ready to plug her back in and wash some clothes!
****A note about the screw-clamp****, incase you cannot reach it from the back. You are going to have to undo it from the front, which will require you to also do the following:
1. Remove the top of the machine by unscrewing the two screws on the upper back of the machine. Once you do this, you will see the electrical wires for the control panel. DON'T UNDO ANYTHING. It will appear you might have to in order to take off the front panel, but you won't.
2. Next, take the two-by-four or some paint cans and place them under the front of the machine to help prop it up so you can unscrew the four bottom screws from the front panel. It's not going to come off just by doing that, so you have to take out the detergent tray, where you'll then see two screws inside the tray crevice and you'll have to take them out. Set those two aside elsewhere--they are longer than the other screws and you'll want to make sure you put them back in the right place. On the top front edge of the washer's control panel there should be two screws on either side securing the plastic control panel to the front of the washer. Unscrew those. You should now see the remaining screws holding the front panel on. Unscrew those as well.
3. Next, open the front door of the washer and you'll see a little grey set of plugs that look sort of like USB ports on the right-hand side. There are two screws holding it on--undo those. You should now be able to pull the front panel out just enough to reach that screw-clamp in the front to unscrew it. Once you do, go ahead and replace all the screws and parts of the front and top you've undone. You'll want to do that before you proceed to taking out the pump and cleaning it, so that you can remember how to do it more easily.
A last note: When you remove the top panel of the washing machine, you will see some papers taped in there with funny drawings (in case you are a novice and not familiar with schematics). PLEASE LEAVE THEM THERE! They are the schematics for the circuitry of your machine, and God forbid you one day have to have THAT worked on, your repair person will definitely need them.
Good luck, and hope this will help you!

SOURCE: Washer has error code E47

Hi,

I have the same problem with the E47 code. I had the service guy over and he brought a troubleshooting sheet. Basically, you must remove the door switch assembly and check the PTC (the white plug on the door switch assembly). According to the diagnostics sheet, if the switch is open or locked, then it is a doorswitch problem, but if the reading on the switch is ~ 1500 ohms, then its the control panel.

The reading on my PTC was ~ 1400 Ohms (which is close to 1500) so I ordered a new control board. I'll post again when it's re-installed.

Code in digital display does not have a E in front of it


Please let me know if you can get a number after this - if so what number shows up?


Model differences:
• Better models have a digital readout display
• Good models do not have a digital readout display
In the Better Models line, the failure codes will appear in the display as an E followed by two numbers, a number and a letter
or two letters. The control will beep and the Door Lock, Wash, Rinse, Final Spin and Control indicator lights will flash.
Example: E14. To stop the flashing and beeping, the customer may touch the Pause Cancel button. The error code remains
stored in the control but once the problem is corrected, it does not effect the operation of the washer. If the failure is something
that the customer can correct (such as the water faucets being turned off), the washer will operate normally the next time it is
started.
In the Good Models line, the control signals the failure code by flashing the five indicator lights of Door Lock, Wash, Rinse,
Final Spin and Control for the first number or letter after the E and the Start indicator light for the second number or letter
after the E. When a failure occurs, the washer stops or pauses and the control beeps and flashes the five indicator lights to tell
the customer that a failure has occurred. To stop the flashing and beeping, the customer may touch the Pause Cancel button.
The error code remains stored in the control but once the problem is corrected, it does not effect the operation of the washer.
If the failure is something that the customer can correct (such as the water faucets being turned off), the washer will operate
normally the next time it is started.
To recall an error code,
• Wake the machine by pressing any button
• Wait 5 seconds
• Press and hold the Start and Pause Cancel buttons simultaneously
• All LEDs will go blank and after a few seconds the control will signal the stored code using audible beeps and blinking
LEDs. The control will repeatedly signal the code, as long as the Start and Pause Cancel buttons are pressed.
A two-second pause between repeats affords you the ability to make accurate counts to identify the correct error codes.
Please Note the following...... on a small number of washers with serial number prefix XC4,
if the previous procedure does not perform as specified, follow the option below:
• Follow all previous steps but instead of pressing Start and Pause Cancel buttons,
press and hold Options and Pause Cancel buttons.
If the washer is a Better Model, the error code will appear in the display. Troubleshoot problem by using charts on the
following pages.
If the washer is a Good Model, the five indicator lights of Door Lock, Wash, Rinse, Final Spin and Control will flash the
number of times for the first digit of the code and the Start indicator light will flash the number of times for the second digit.
Take
separate counts of each indicator light, then repeat to confirm in order to be accurate in identifying the proper error code.
The code is obtained by counting the number of times the lights flash. Example E24: The five indicator lights would flash twice
indicating the 2 and the START indicator light will flash four times indicating the 4. The five indicator lights and the START
indicator light start flashing at the same time.
The control will pause for 2 seconds, then repeat the code as long as the two buttons are pressed and held.
Note: A letter appearing in the code stands for a number higher than nine:
A = 10 B = 11 C = 12 D = 13 E = 14 F = 15
Example Code F1: the first digit would be 15 and the second digit would be 1. If this code would appear on a washer in the
Good model line, the five indicator lights would blink fifteen times and the START indicator light would blink once.

My washer won't start, it keeps flashing ERR and then the wash-time, and then LOC. My roommate says to fix it before, he held down three buttons, but can't remember which ones. Any idea?


Try the following two buttons: press Options and Select together for 10 seconds (or until the LOC disappears). The pair of buttons held for 10 seconds also sets this control lock.

To find out the error code, turn the Program knob to the start position, Spin Only. Press Start/Pause to start the cycle. Press Cancel to stop the cycle and turn off the LEDs. Press Cancel again and within 5 seconds press and hold the Options and Start/Pause buttons until the LEDs start chasing. Then release the buttons. Turn the Program knob seven clicks clockwise from the Start position. The control will signal the last error code. To clear the error, press and hold Options and Start/Pause for 3 seconds. Then either unplug the washer for 5-8 seconds before plugging it back in. Alternatively, press and hold Options and Start/Pause together for a few seconds until the Wash LEDs appear.

http://www.applianceblog.com/mainforums/frigidaire-electrolux/12950-frigidaire-atf6000es1-wont-drain.html has a link to the service manual for the listed washer (the link is half-way down the page).

I hope this helps.
