Empty the washer and get some towels...

  1. Unplug the washer.
  2. Remove the kick panel 4-8 screws along the bottom with a Torx 15 screwdriver.
  3. Directly in front of you will be the pump and the cleanout (large twist-cap).
  4. Pack towels under and around the cleanout.
  5. Turn the cap counter-clockwise and pull out.
  6. Remove any debris.
  7. If you have an additional cylindrical pre-filter, remove and clean it.
  8. Re-assemble.
  9. Plug in the washer
  • Note: If you see bubbles or foam in the cleanout, you're using too much soap.

Whirlpool duet steam washer error f21


The F21 code is a ' drain issue ' --- if you remove the bottom panel from the machine you will see the water pump right there,, just in front of the pump you will see a clean out area,, unscrew counter clockwise and remove the catch screen,,, it most likely has a few things in it ,, clean out - re-install and start the cycle. and the F21 code should be gone AND washer is back up and running.

F21 Whirlpool duet washer, removed front panel unclogged restarted and still f21? Tech came in and had no idea said he smelled something burning, must of been his imagination.


ohh, duets are such a treat.

If the drain time exceeds eight minutes, “F21” will be displayed,
the water valves will turn off and the pump will stop running.
Press PAUSE/CANCEL to drain the machine. The display will be
cleared and the machine will turn off after a maximum of eight
minutes.

Possible Causes/Procedure
1. Check the drain hose and make sure it is not plugged or
kinked.
2. Unplug washer or disconnect power.
3. Check the electrical connections at the pump and make sure
the pump is running.
4. Check the drain pump filter for foreign objects.
5. Plug in washer or reconnect power.
6. If the above does not correct the problem, go to step 7.
7. Unplug washer or disconnect power.
8. Replace the pump.

this is what Whirlpool says, but we have found that this doesnt always work.

Whirlpool duet washer F21 error code. Just bought


"F21" is a Long Drain error. The following link explains how to torubleshoot:

http://www.fixya.com/support/r1484065-f21_error_code_whirlpool_duet_kenmore

What this usually means is that you have something clogged in the drain pump and it needs to be cleaned out. In the majority of the cases, this corrects the problem. However, if you JUST purchased this washer, and it is brand new (not used), I would recommend you use your manufacturer warranty (good for the 1st year in most cases) to avoid the risk of voiding it. The conditions of some warranties, prohibit the consumer from opening the appliance and attempting any repairs. Read the find print just to be sure.

If you have any questions, please let me know. I hope this helps you.

F21 on Whirlpool front load duet washer


"F21" is a Long Drain error code. The following link explains:

http://www.fixya.com/support/r1484065-f21_error_code_whirlpool_duet_kenmore

In most cases this is simply caused by a clogged drain pump and all that is required is a good cleaning. Read through the instructions provided in the link on how to do this. Make sure the washer is unplugged while servicing any of the internal components.

If the problem persists, you may have a drain pump that is malfunctioning or is damaged. The manufacturer recommends replacing the pump if this is the case.

Let me know if you have any questions. I hope this helps you.

Whirlpool duet washer flashing sud then f21 ????????


The "SUD" error is in direct relationship the other error code. "F21" is a Long Drain error. The following link explains:

http://www.fixya.com/support/r1484065-f21_error_code_whirlpool_duet_kenmore

If something is preventing water from pumping through the drain pump, you will often get a "SUD" error as air is developed in the pump. Make sure you double check all the drain lines as well.

If you have questions, or require additional assistance, please let me know before you rate the solution. I hope this helps you.
