ok the f20 is an error that the machine isn't sensing water comming in, this would be the flow meter causing this,

One more question. This seems to happen only on larger loads..towels or big loads. Does that have something to do with the flow meter? I've only had this machine since Feb 2010.

yes because large loads use more water like in the rinses it fill more times or rinses more and if the flow meter doesn't read enough water flowing in it will fault, I would call and see if its still covered by warranty,thanks Bryan
