Question about Whirlpool Duet 3.8 cu. ft. Front Load Washer
Will throw F21 code and sometimes sud message. Usually have to drain spin cycle to finish load. Wife real unhappy.
"F21" is a Long Drain error. This is usually attributed to either a malfunction with the drain pump, or a drain pump clog. The following link explains:
In most cases, this is a simple clog in the drain pump reservoir that can easily be remedied by cleaning out the drain pump. Read through the link thoroughly and let me know if you have questions. If anything has been clogged in the impeller for any significant period of time, it can cause irreparable damage to the pump motor and/or impeller. Since the drain pump is monitored by the VOLUME it pumps, a damaged motor and/or impeller can REDUCE the pump volume and continue to generate errors. So, you may have a pump that "appears" to be pumping, but may not be pumping at the proper volume. This is a worst-case scenario, of course. If cleaning the drain pump does not correct the problem, the manufacturer recommends replacing it. If it comes to this, post back and let me know. I can give you step-by-step instructions on how to replace the pump and where to purchase a replacement. I hope this helps you.
