I had the code E21 error (not draining) on my 2012 Electrolux EWFLS70JTS0, which I'm guessing is similar to a Frigidaire Front Load Washer. After reading about the potential causes being related to drain or pump obstructions, I decided to try forcing compressed air into the drain hose at the rear of the washer to see if I could push out whatever got into the system. So I moved the washing machine out from the wall, and pulled the drain hose out from its wall inlet. No disassembly required. Then I placed the trigger air nozzle from my compressor into the drain hose that's connected to the back of the machine, and held it in place with my hand so that most of the air pressure would go up the hose and into the machine.
Once I pulled the trigger to start the air flow it only took a few seconds to see bubbles appearing in the washer's tub. At that point it seemed any obstruction was now pushed out (where it went, I'm not sure. Somewhere in the standing water in tub I suspect).
I suppose it would be just as effective to use a garden hose with water (if you don't have an air compressor), but a little more messy. Anyway, as soon as I put it in "quick wash" mode (which starts with a drain cycle), it drained fine. 100% problem solved! No more error code. And no repair bill!. I just hope that whatever was restricting the drain flow does not find its way back into the system again. It's been a couple of days and so far, so good.

E2 error code aw-8990st toshiba wash


Toshiba top load washers have standard error codes. Depending on the display (2 or 3 digits depending on the model) it will either show E21 (or E23) or alternate E2 and -1 (or E2 and -3). Here's a list of most Toshiba washers error codes;

E1: Water doesn't drain in time or not at all
E21: Lid open
E23: Lid not locking
E31: Load imbalance
E32: Check E1 and/or E31
E5: No water coming in

You can try resetting to factory default by following the procedure: Power OFF, then pressing and holding the Super Spin Dry button, press power ON and it should beep 3 times.

Hope this helps

Hello debbiecantu1 - Typically error code E21 indicates an issue with the water not pumping out fast enough. Does the unit make a humming noise? If so, either the drainage hose/pump is clogged and needs to be cleaned. Try setting the cycle to spin only and verify if water pumps out. If it does not, then the unit could possibly be experiencing an issue with a faulty pump, timer, door lock assembly or control board. Contact a professional to move forward accurately.

E21 error code


There is a E21. Water not draining fast enough. Try holding the start/pause and cancel key together for 3 seconds. The door lock, wash, rinse and final spin leds should light. Any error codes should be displayed when holding those keys.

E21 error while on final spin


E21 is telling you that it has not drained the water out. You may have something stuck in your drain pump.
