Sorry I know I’m slow at typing but I thought that is what I payed £13 for you to help ?
Customer reply replied 1 month ago
Sorry

E20 is a drain time out fault. This happens when the machine detects that the water hasn’t left the machine as fast as expected.

To fix this this is what you need to do.

If the door will unlock scoop out as much water as possible.

Using the small black hose drain the water until it stops coming out

When the water stops put down a large towel and place it in front of the machine slightly underneath if possible.

Next unscrew the the filter cap that’s next to the black hose and clean it out. Also take a look inside the filter housing for any obstructions or foreign bodies.

If this was clogged up and now clean you’ll be good to go if it is empty follow the corrugated grey drain hose making sure there are no kinks. Also check the end of this hose and where it connects for blockages.
