Question about Washing Machines
My washer is a little over a year old (of course) and all of a sudden started coming up with an F33 error code and was leaking a lillte bit of water from the back of the machine underneath. I called a service repairman and he came and ran it. No water came out and it ran fine. Started leaking again and still the F33 and occassionally an F21. It took me 3 hours to wash a load of towels. I plugged and unplugged the machine until they finished. Repairman came again...found nothing.
“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.
