Question about Whirlpool Duet GHW9150P Front Load Washer

1 Answer

Whirlpool Duet Sport

My Duet will not drain! It takes, on average, 5 trips of resetting the washer to get the job done. The error code is F21 and I've followed the trouble shooting explanations to no avail. Help!! Please!! It's making me crazy, running up the electric bill, clothes and towels stink because of the length of time they are sitting in water. Thanks.

Did you check for obstructions in the drain pump/ button trap??? if not remove the lower acess panel (3 screws across hte bottom of front panel) there you will see a lioarge turn screw remove it and you may find debris preventing free flow of drain water. BE AWARE THOUGH TERE WILL BE WATER BEHIND HTE BUTTON TRAP, HAVE A TOWELL/ GARBAGE BAG RADY TO CATCH WATER, AND UNPLUG UNIT LIVE WIRES!!!!!!

My whirlpool washer duet sport is not draining water out and displays error code f-21


Hi


Thanks for using FixYa. Error F21 indicates long drain, this error occurs when the drain time exceeds 8 minutes. To resolve this check the drain hose and make sure it is not kinked with any foreign particles; also clean the drain pump filter for any clogs. Also check if the pump is running fine. If still the issue is not resolved after all this then you might have to replace the pump. Please do rate the solution if the issue is resolved or post a comment for further assistance.


Thanks

What does f21 on washer mean?


Hi, this advice is for Kenmore Elite and Whirlpool Duet model FRONT LOADERS displaying the “F21” error code.

“F21” is a Long Drain error. If the drain time exceeds 8 minutes this error code will be displayed. In addition, a “SUDS” error may also be displayed. This may be an indication of a drain pump problem and/or clog in the drain line. You will need to check the following:

  1. First, attempt to unplug the washer for at LEAST 30 minutes to reset the Central Control Unit (CCU). Sometimes this is all that is required to correct momentary glitches with the unit. If the error code returns, proceed to step 2.
  2. Check the drain hose to make sure it is not kinked or clogged.
  3. Check the electrical connections to the pump and ensure the pump is running.
  4. Remove the drain pump filter and check for foreign objects and/or debris.
To check the drain pump, click on the following link for step-by-step instructions.

If the above procedures do not correct the problem, it is recommended by the manufacturer to replace the drain pump.

Take care

Whirlpool Duet Sport Front loading washer and dryer with error code


An easy Fix. Take off the kick panel, 3 screws 1/4 inch. Make sure you have a shop vac ready or a lot of towels as there will be some water. Always disconnect power to washer and dryer, and turn off water to washer. Your filter most likely is clogged with change, screws, lint, and other household stuff that we leave in our pockets! Unscrew the cap on the filter, easy to find, since you have the kick panel off! Take everything out of the filter. Take your shop vac and **** out remaining stuff in hose. Also, **** up any water that has leaked in and around the washer. Screw the cap back on hand tight, put the kick panel back on, turn your water back on, plug it in and there you go! Maybe takes an hour and saves you a repair bill. If you are not comfortable with this procedure then call a maintenance person that is qualified. 775f844.jpg
