Question about Whirlpool Duet GHW9150P Front Load Washer
We bought our whirlpool in dec. have run 7 lds through it the seventh load was last night before bed when I came down stairs there was a electrical smell coming from the washer and it was flashing f21 it had'nt drained I hit cancel 2 times power off unplugged it checked the hose clogs or kinks but there was nothing I could blow air into the cylinder, then plugged it back in turnt it on put it on drain/spin it just sat there counting down until it finally came up with f21 again, as these machines faulty in some way or is this machine just a fluke...could using an extention cord, or any thing else have cause a problem like this?
F21 has to do with your pump. These machines have had problems with the pumps since the beginning and it is something that needs to be fixed. With these front loaders you have to make sure every time you use it to check that front bellow boot and make sure there is nothing left in there from the wash. Socks and under ware like to hide out in there and will eventually get sucked down into the pump causing your machine to not drain. Coins and anything else left in pockets are a big nuisance too. They will get down into the pump and cause the motor in the pump to jam up. If you remove that bottom panel you will see the pump there. Clamp off the hoses with two hose clamps and remove the pump. Look inside the pump and whatever is in there take it out with a pair of needle nose pliers. This should fix your problem. Just make sure you remember to always check that bellow boot after every wash and always make sure pockets are empty. Let me know if you have any other questions and let me know if this was helpful for you. Good luck and I am glad that I could help.
