    Default Error code F20

    Model Number: 110.46462501
    Brand: Sears Kenmore
    Age: 6-10 years

    I have a Kenmore HE2 washer. I'm getting code F20. I have changed the pressure switch, hose and pump. When doing a load I get code F20. I do not get it all the time. Around 95% of the time. When you run it in rinse and spin there are no issues. Is there a way to test the pressure switch? Please help!

    What type of fill hoses are you using? if they are those "flood prevention" type hoses they will not work with front load washers and cause the F20.

    Water pressure to the washer fine? Try different water temps, hot, cold warm to see if one works and doesn't show the F20.

    Here's the repair manual for your model(it says Duet Sport, your HE2t is the same as the Duet Sport made by Whirlpool): Dropbox - 8178558 L-78 Whirlpool Duet Front-Loading Automatic Washer.pdf

    You will need to check your pressure switch on page 5-2.

    A few members with this same problem found it was a bad pressure switch.

    Here's the pressure switch for your model:
