"F21" is a Long Drain error. Its usually an indication that something is clogged in the drain pump and/or drain lines. The following link explains how to correct:

http://www.fixya.com/support/r385845-checking_drain_pump_in_whirlpool_duet

Now, your diagnostics procedures may differ, but the procedures for accessing and cleaning the pump are the same. It doesn't take much to damage the small drain pumps in these washers. If anything has been caught in the pump impeller or motor for any significant period of time, the pump may be running, but it may NOT be pumping anything. If you perform all procedures outlined in the link provided and the error code reappears, you will need to replace the drain pump.

If you need a replacement drain pump the following websites are great sources to obtain one - searspartsdirect.com, repairclinic.com and pcappliancerepair.com. Just type in your COMPLETE model number to begin your search. All three offer competitive pricing, so take a look at all three. These are the cheapest web sources I have found for appliance parts.

I hope you find this information helpful. Let me know if you require additional assistance.

Hi from retired Englishman in SW France,
Whirlpool F21 (and 16, 18, 20 and 22) states 'control unit failure'. Could be poor connections but requires a service call, sorry ;-0(

If this has assisted and/or clarified the situation for you please consider a 4 thumbs up on our rating.
Thanks and good luck!

What is error code f 21 on a whirlpool duet sport wfw8300 3.8 cubic washer?


Hello,

This means that the drain pump is clogged. Tip the machine back and remove the three screws on the bottom panel. The pump has a filter inside. Pull the filter out and clean it, it will fix the issue for sure!

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

Could be limescale in the pipes under the sink or blockage in the sink.
Disconnect pump from taps - put bucket under pipe and run tap - if water coughs from that pipe, its the sink not the pump.

Wirlpool Duet Sport Washer shows no indication of power


That happened to mine I had to replace the "brain" of the washer....the part was about $170. I think it is called the control panel.
There is a test you can run...look in the manual.

Whirlpool duet sport wfw8300sw00 f-21 error


Unplug the machine. Unscrew the 3 screws under the front edge of the washer. The service technician manual is attached to the panel that slides down and off. Find F21 code. See suggested procedures. Note: My drain pump filter had a baby wash cloth in it along with some change that was disrupting the flow. It is exceptionally easy to remove, clean, and reinstall. Just line up installation notches when reinstalling. Whirlpool should have mentioned this filter in the User & Care Guide, but I could not find it anywhere in there.
