Whirlpool will not start after many different attempts
My washer was stuch closed with water in it. we drained the water and released the door manually. ever since we can not get it to start. it just beeps three times as if the door is open. we replaced the door mech but it didn't help. We had a tech come and look at it and he said he couldn't get it to run a diagnostic. he ordered a control panel......long story short I installed the new panel and was able to run the diagnostic except after the error codes it goes the the drain/spin light only and that is it. I replaced the control panel back to the original and could do the same thing. Why does it go to the drain/spin light and do you have any other suggestions

Non of the answers are helpfull. Unplug power.Remove bottom panel and there you find a door lock release. Pull n the door will unlock. Drain water from from pum(it has drain tube). Remove clothes. Move n push the tub a little on each side. Now plug drain pipe. Close door n put it to spin. Should work
The F21 error code indicates a long drain time on this type of washer. The door will not unlock if the washer control detects that water is still in the tub. To manually unlock the washer door, take these steps:
Unplug the washer to completely disconnect electrical power.
Remove the bottom front service panel as shown in the first image below.
Carefully reach up through the bottom opening and pull the release tab on the bottom of the door lock assembly until it clicks. NOTE: Internal metal edges in the washer can be sharp. Protective gloves are recommended for this procedure.
By pulling the manual release tab on the door lock assembly, you should be able to get the washer door open.
After opening the door and removing the clothes, I recommend emptying any remaining water in the tub with a wet/dry vacuum (or bail it out). Since you already have the bottom front service panel off and the washer unplugged, you can arrange shallow pans and towels to catch any remaining water and pull the filter out and clean it You may find a clog in this area that is preventing your washer from draining properly. Clear any clog or debris from this area and reassemble the washer. Check your drain hose for a kink or clog. Check the washer house drain for a clog or restriction. Test the washer to see if it will drain properly.
If you can drop down drain hose to floor level then drain into bucket this will allow you to open the door . Sounds like coin in the pump /remove the filter and clean check pump blades are free...Good luck
you've indicated this problem only arrises during the rinse cycle, is that correct ? The leak doesn't occur during the wash cycle initial fill level ? I want to distinguish the difference because there has been a repair tip issued by whirlpool for the duet and sport washer's. This may be applicable to your machine. If it is indeed only during the rinse, the problem is within the door assembly. Specifically the glass and it's "seat" to the frame.
Let me know, I'll watch for your reply.
you can use a wet dry shop vac and attach it to the end of the drain hose to removed the water.
once the water is removed then the door will unlock.
if you remove the small access panel on the front of the washer there is a white plastic type cord that you can pull and this should also release the door. after all the water is gone remove the drain pump cover and look to see if there is anything obstructing the pump.there will some water that will stil come out this is normal.
get the water out , u can either lay the drain hose on the floor so all the water syphons out , or there is a cap which u can undo to get thge water out , more than likely u got something blocking the drain pump
