    During each cycle the machine stops working and starts beeping. The time indicator is flashing F then H alternately. I can restart by pushing pause and then the start button, but this gets to be a pain at each step in the process. Help please

Washing does not go through the drain cycle, All lights flashing, cycle does not complete

Several issues could cause this, and if all lights are flashing could indicate a issue with the motherboard or that its trying to flash a mechanical code, depending on the exact model. Best reconmendation is to unplug the machine for 2 to 3 mins giving it enough time to reset. Also check the drain hose for clogs and if mechanically incline, go ahead and open the back service panel or font panel and service the pump. Possibly sounds like a draining issue which could cause this as when the water goes through the pump and if its not exiting the machine at a certain speed can send a signal to the board to shut down and flash codes.

F-21 error means What?

F-21=LONG DRAIN If the drain time exceeds 8 minutes the water valves shut down. After 4 mins the Sd(slow drain) error will be displayed, 4 mins later the F/21 error code will be displayed.
Press PAUSE/CANCEL 2 times to clear display

Probable cause/Proceedure
Drain hose plugged/kinked
unplug washer/disconnect power
check electrical connections to pump
and make sure pump runs
check drain pump filter for strings,sand etc
plug in washer If this dont work
replace pump.

Start Cycle won't start, just flashes

first of all, with any problem, always try to reset it, unplug it for 20-30 mins or so and replug. it sounds to me like The motor is probably froze up. Very common if they sit for any length of time. Easy to fix too. Just get underneath it and look for the blades on the motor shaft. Give them a turn. BE CAREFUL NOT TO TOUCH ANY WIRES though. Unplug it first if you can. good luck.
