I recommend checking your washer installation for a possible siphoning condition and kinked fill hoses, first, as these are the easiest items to rule out.

If you have questions, please let me know. I hope this helps you.

My Kenmore front load washer will not fill--it sounds like it is draining instead. The last load washed did not spin correctly and the clothes were very wet when cycle completed.


Washer Not Filling:


  • Door Not Closed and Locked
    • Front load washers won't fill if the door is not closed and locked. Listen for the door locking when starting a cycle, then pull on the door to make sure the door is closed and locked.
  • Delayed Start Feature
    • Some washers have a delay prior to filling, where the electronic control is checking the dispenser function. This is Normal.
  • Flashing Lights or Error Code on Display
    • When there is a filling issue, the washer may shut off and display one of the following codes: LF, LE, nF, IE, FH, E10 or F20.
    • If the washer is displaying one of the above error codes, then do the hard reset procedure listed below.

If the appliance is not accepting input from the control panel, follow the steps below to reset the control:

  1. Unplug or turn the circuit breaker off for 30 seconds.
  2. Plug the power cord into the wall outlet or turn the breaker back on and wait 30 seconds.
  3. Press the Pause / Cancel / Stop button twice to clear the display.
  4. Start a short cycle, to check operation of the appliance, by selecting a cycle and pressing and holding the start button until the appliance starts.

Hello there and welcome to fixya
I am very sorry that you are having a troubles with your machine
I know that it can be very frustrating when dealing with error codes so i will do my best to try to help you thru this ok?
ok well first the f20 error code is a no water code meaning that the machine may not be getting any water into the machine or very little and after 6 minutes the error code will be shown on the display .
So what do u need to do is this
f you have NO water in the wash tub, check the following:

- Inlet water valve may be clogged. Clean inlet screens if necessary.
- Make sure water taps are on.
- Check inlet hoses for kinks or clogs.

If you HAVE water filling the wash tub, check the following:

- Make sure you don't have a siphoning problem. Click the following link for instructions:

I have a kenmore elite HE3t and it has an F20 error code. What does this mean?


Hello,

The F20 error code means; no water was detected entering washer or pressure switch trip was not detected after 6 minutes

Many times that is caused by a blockage a pinched fill hose,or the filter screen on back of washer where hoses attach to are clogged

Good luck,i hope this helps

I have an Kenmore Elite HE5t, that is giving me an F-20, note after starting any cycle. I can not locate the owners manual. What should I do next?


The F20 code indicates that the control board is not detecting water entering the machine. If this is happening in the middle of the cycle even though the washer initially fills properly, then you could have a siphon problem through your drain hose. Make sure that the drain hose is properly installed. Check to see if the end of the hose is stuck way down the stand pipe. If it is, then the hose will need to be pulled out. Only about 6" to 8" should protrude down the stand pipe.

Check your fill hoses. Make sure that they are not kinked or clogged. If you are using FloodSafe supply hoses as shown in the image below, this could be causing your problem. This type of fill hose will not work on your washer.

Check the water pressure coming from your fill hoses.

My Kenmore Elite HE5T front loading washer is giving me an F20 (Water inlet problem - no water or insufficient water supply) code. The Drum fills half way up with water in about 5 minutes and then the...


The F20 error deals with the water coming into the tub. The F20 code indicates the control didn't see any water enter the tub.

  1. There is a flow meter that tells the control water is coming into the washer. If the flow meter is faulty the error usually happens quickly.
  2. Near the pressure switch is a clear plastic hose may be kinked or even have a small hole in it. Check the drain line first and then remove the top of the washer to access the pressure switch and pressure hose. With the washer empty remove the hose from the pressure switch located on the right side of the washer and blow through it to clear any debris blocking the pressure hose or air trap.
  3. If this doesn't help then most likely you will need to replace the pressure switch.
