I was pretty good at working on my old washing machine ... I knew how to take it apart an all. But back then, I made some dumb mistakes.

This washer was new in May of 06, so I don't want to screw this one up.

I have an error code that is e20. I have read that it's a problem with the pump, or drain hoses. How do I start? I don't know how to get access to the the pump. Is there a front panel that comes off? I can only see two screws way on the bottom (facing front).

Or, do I start in the back? I can't see back there, yet, b/c the back is not easily accessible. *(Before I pull it out, I wanted to make sure that I needed to)

Muchas thank you s in advance.

remove the 2 screws on the bottom and the front access panel comes off

pump is on the right, remove hoses from it, remove pump from machine then remove whatever is in the pump

BTW that big long steel wire is not part of the washer

buy the g/f some new bras for christmas

I did it! I think. I spilled some water. I cleaned it up as best as I could, but there was still some water under the machine, so I am drying it up with a big fan. I don't want anything to rust under there.

Also, it was rather easy to get to the clog, but putting those clamps on ... WOW, was that hard. It took me 30-45 minutes just to put them on!

See my treasure below in the pic:

It contains:
    money (about 30 cents)
    a small part of my wife's old bra that came out shredded one day
    plenty of lint
    a nail
    a sock
    and part of my son's steeler jersey, which was torn up in the machine this week ... which is ironic, b/c the steelers themselves were torn up by those bloody pats!

    Tomorrow, I shall have clean socks and underwear. I hope. If those hoses are leaking where I put on the clamps, I might commit myself to a mental ward ... or just call someone else to fix the dang things.

the clamp on the coin trap can be a pain, i take it off last with vise grips and put it on first, that way you can just keep the vise grips locked on the sucker
