Hi there,The f20 error codes indicates a water fill error, check your supply lines to the washer make sure there is plenty of water pressure and that the hoses are not stopped up. If all that looks good then replace the water inlet valve on the washer as it is not allowing water in properly to the unit. If you would like a part number for the water inlet valve, give me the model number of the washer and I will be glad to give you that info, thanks. In the meantime: We are on the honor system here.
