Once I took the back panel off I then realized I had to take the front bottom panel off instead.

Hi and welcome to FixYa,

An F21 error code indicate drain problem. Might you want to inspect/clean the drain system from the filter to catch basin to impeller, pump/valve and drain hose. To do this, the bottom/kick panel ahs to be removed. A bit of a messy job so pls be prepared with paper towels and other absorbent materials.

Good luck and Thank you for using FixYa. Happy Holidays.

Washer is not draining and F21 is flashing on washer


the pump is blocked or the pump could be bad and need to be replaced.remove the bottom panel.if water is still in the tub,get a shop vac and vac out the water,then you'll see in the middle of the pump a piece that unscrews.turn it slowly counter clockwise,when the water starts to leak vac it up until it stops leaking and remove the middle piece out of the pump,clean out the catch,put the piece back in,add a little water to the machine and put it on drain,if it drains then you are done,if it doesn't you'll need a new pump.call your parts store,give them the model number and they will sell you the correct pump.good luck,if you need any more help let me know and send the model number

What do you do if you get an F21 code on a Kenmore Elite HE 3t steam front load washer


The F21 error code is an indication that the unit has a too long of a drain out condition. If the control call for the unit to drain & the water does not drain out in 8 minutes or less the unit will stop & flash the F21 error code. I would recommend checking the drain pump & pressure switch circuit.

What does F21 mean on the Kenmore Elite Washer?


Check the drain line for kinks or obstructions. Check the pump. Remove the hoses from the pump and use a flashlight to look into the suction port. Look for anything clogging the pump (like the occasional stray sock) and check the pump impeller. Make sure there are no broken/missing blades and that the impeller will spin freely. If any blades are broken/missing or if you cannot get the impeller to spin freely, the pump is defective. Hopefully it's just a clogged pump, drain line, or a jammed impeller. Hope this helped and best wishes.
