Hi This depends on what cycle its comming up on. Is it showing the E20 on wash cycle or dryer cycle? Regards

E 20 ON WASH CYCLE. 40 Degrees

Ok if its comming up on wash then E20 is a draining error code. What you need to do here is check the filter in the bottom corner on the front. There you will see a small grey drain hose.Pull this out but not to far and open the cap and then you can slowerly drain the water out from there.Then you can fully remove the filter and give this a clean out and then check there is nothing stuck in the pump impeller. But for the E20 error code this is a time out draining error code.

Hi again. I have drained the filter area, there is nothing stuck in there, in-fact its pretty clean as I clear it out weekly. I have managed to spin the washing load.Is there anything else I can do ? Any suggestions at anything else I should check?
I am not sure if the problem will continue with another attempt at a wash?
So I think I am going to try another load and see if the problem happens again.
Expert:  Daniel replied 2 years ago.
Did you look at the pump impeller inside the chamber were the filter goes to make sure there was nothing stuck in there? If thats all clear then its possibley a faulty pump which in this case it will need to be replaced to cure this.
