My Kenmore Elite HE 5t is showing the F20 code 15-20 seconds into the washing cycle. F20 standing for Water inlet problem. We have cleaned and checked all inlet ports and they are good so what else


Hello Shannon;

My name is Peter. I am a retired field service appliance technician.

Code F20 also stands for pressure switch.

You have a incomplete model number so I am not sure if this is the correct switch.

This is just inside the top cover, right hand corner.

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

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.

Recently I have been getting an F20 error message. What does this mean?


F20 No water detected entering machine

Could be a couple things . Clogged inlet screens on the water valve, flow meter gone bad. Pressure tube has sediment in it.

I've seen this complaint 5-6 times within the last month. Try this. Remove the top panel by removing the three screws along the back and pushing the panel back and then lifting up. Locate the pressure sensor mounted on the right side of the machine. Check the pressure sensor hose very carefully for splits or cracks caused by chafing on the tub. You really need to look closely, it only takes a tiny pin hole. If damaged, replace hose and make sure the new hose is routed properly, not taped to the tub as some of the new ones have been for some reason.

The following link explains the "F20" error code:

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.
