Remove the front kick panel (3 screws on the bottom and the panel will just slide off) on the side of cabinet there will be a plastic enveloppe, or a paper one with a sheet in it. This is the tech sheet. It will show all the error codes for your machine. Look up F21 and it should tell you how to test the component that is causing the failure. Based on that, you can decided if it's worth calling a technician.

Error message SUD and F21 even after unclogging the filter


Push the pause/cancel button twice to clear your message. Then run through a rinse/spin cycle. Next try a normal load without any detergent. SUDS is usually from too much detergent. If this fails, checked the hose for kinks. Check connections and if all that fails, you will probably have to replace the pump. Good Luck!

I have a duet sport WFW8300SW02 which I am having


Here is the code meaning
F26 is for door lock - do you hear the door lock one time or with click sound repeatedly.
F20 no water entering - do you check water coming into washer
F21 long drain-do you take a look of pump filter
Another possibility is the pressure switch was bad.
Hope you can figure out the issue.

My magtag 5000 series washer is flashing error code F21, It was in the middle of a wash cycle and now the door is locked and it won't open. How do I at least get the door open. I have unplugged the


Unplug the washer. Then plug it back in and press the button that turns it off. This should unlock the door. Same thing happened on mine and there was a kink in the drain hose. Once I unkinked the hose, unplugged it, plugged it back in, turned it off, then I was able to run a drain & spin cycle to get the water out of the load that was in the washer. I then ran a full wash cycle (they'd gotten stuck in the first drain & spin cycle of a wash) and everything seems to be fine now.

F-21 code several times. We clean the pump. Start again the rinse/drain and spin cicle, and now present sd code and later f-21 code. What we need to do.


I have the manual for this machine. Under "Code 21" it says the following:
"F21" (Drain Problem) Select STOP twice to cancel the cycle. Unplug washer or disconnect power. Check the following: Is the drain hose kinked? Is the drain hose frozen? Is the drain hose clogged? Is the drain hose more than 96" (2.4 m) above the floor? Plug in washer or reconnect power. Re-select cycle and press START. If the problem remains, call for service.
For "SUDS" code, the following:
"SUD" (Suds Routine) When excessive suds are detected, a suds routine automatically starts. This routine removes extra suds and assures proper rinsing of your garments. "SUD" is displayed during rinsing to inform you that Suds Routine was activated. Use only HE (High Efficiency) detergents.
Here is some more information that may help you as well:
"F" Codes other than F20, F21 and F22 Select STOP twice to cancel the cycle. Select DRAIN & SPIN if there is excessive water in the washer. Re-select cycle and press START. If the problem remains, call for service.
I hope this is of some help to you, Please rate and comment, Thank You

Washer was flashing suds code followed by F21 code. I was able to use the drain & spin setting but now it won't open or reset even when I uplug the machine it just keeps flashing the minuets to...


Hi, "F21" is a Long Drain error code. This indicates that you have an obstruction in the drainage system. More than likely you probably have a clog in the drain pump. This LINK explains.

Included is a follow-on link that explains how to check the drain pump to clean. You may also have to remove the inlet hose that runs from the bottom of the wash tub to the inlet side of the drain pump. Debris can commonly clog in this area as well causing the drain cycle to fail.

NOTE: If these preliminary measures do not correct your problem, you may have to replace the drain pump. It does not take much to damage the pump impeller or motor. Since the error code is generated if the drain cycle exceeds 8 minutes, if the pump is damaged and can't pump at the required volume, the error code will continue to appear until the pump is replaced.
If you need to open the door but it remains locked, you can first attempt to unplug the washer for at least 30 minutes in an attempt to reset the Central Control Unit (CCU). If the door remains locked, you can use the manual release to unlock and open the door. The LINK explains how.

NOTE: The Maytag Epic is manufactured by Whirlpool, so these procedures will apply to your washer.

Door is locked code F21 wont run or cycle or empty water


First check your washer plug to see if the connections are tightly screwed. Next check your filter if you haven't for long.

Remove the 3 screws at the bottom of the front panel under the washer door. Your filter door will be light brown. If you find a hose there it is to drain out excess water (water that could not be drained by your pump) After you hv drained unscrew the cap and remove all the junk inside. Have a large plastic bag to catch junk and water. Refit carefully after cleaning out. If not solved, something shd be blocking your pump, check this out

F21 is flashing


This means the water is not draining out like it should. I solved this problem initially on my washer (my drain pipe was clogged), but now (about 4 months later), I have a flashing F21 and 5d, because of a clog some- where. I can drain and rinse (after this cycle, the door will unlock), and the tub spins, but I can't complete a cycle. Lots of debris has come out with rinse water, but I still seem to have a clog somewhere. I can complete a wash load by manually switching the settings.

Kenmore HE2plus wont spin...F-21 error


Apparantly the F21 error means there is a drain problem...I removed the drain hose from the output in the wall and held it down at ground level and let it drain into a pot...I ran the rinse, drain and spin cycle while I did this but before I hit the start button I hit the 2nd rinse button to turn off the rinse portion of the cycle. It seems to be draining fine now.
