DONT KNOW THE MACHINE BUT CHECK AND SEE IF THE DRAIN MOTOR RUNS AT ALL. IT COULD BE DEFECTIVE AND THE CONTROL IS SEEING IT AS SUCH. IF SO, REPLACE IT

Error code e21 on frigidaire affinity washer cleaned pumped and ran a rinse cycle it did fine put clothes in to wash it ran for 10 min. then stopped.


Hello Deena,
Error Code e21
means the water is not pumping out fast enough.The most likely reason is because the washer drain filter is clogged.
Here is a solution:
  1. Pull the machine out from the wall.
  2. Then take the panel out in the rear. Once the panel is off you will see the drain pump.
  3. Disconnect the drain Tube between the Tub and the Pump.
  4. Look inside the pipe you will find the Drain Filter.
  5. Clean the filter out ( you will be surprised of "things" found in the filter) then put the machine back together
  6. Try a full cycle.
That should end your problem.
Best of Luck!

It pauses with error code E20 and doesn't seem to drain or spin, could it be the filter is cloged?


The E20 error code is a class code that indicates a drain problem in the washer. This is consistent with the drain and spin problem that you are observing. To determine the exact error code, follow these steps:

Wake the machine by pressing any button

Wait 5 seconds

Press and hold the START and PAUSE/CANCEL buttons simultaneously

The exact error code (E21, E23 or E24) will be displayed.

If E23 or E24 are displayed, you will normally need to replace the control board due to a failed drain pump relay.

If the E21 code is displayed, I recommend that you follow these troubleshooting tips:

Check the washer drain to see if it is clogged.

Check the washer drain hose for a clog or restriction.

Make sure that the washer drain system complies with the installation instructions for the washer.

Try to gravity drain the washer by placing the drain hose in a bucket on the floor. If the washer will gravity drain, you may be able to

unplug the washer

and remove the bottom front service panel using the procedure in the image below. Arrange towels to catch residual water that may be in the washer and check the pump filter and drain trap for a clog or debris. If you find no clog or debris, then you may need to replace the drain pump. NOTE: You should not attempt this procedure unless you are completely confident in your technical ability to safely access and check the pump. Do not disassemble the drain pump hose if the washer is full of water.

E21 error is showing on my electrolux EWF14811 washing machine. What does this mean and how do I clear it?


E21 means a problem with the water draining.
Could be defective: drain pump, pressure switch, wiring, current leak between heating element and ground and finally main board.
Also could be drain filter or drain tube (kinked or clogged) and leaks from water circuit on pressure switch.

Good Afternoon Nicola,

I understand you are receiving an E21 code on your Frigidaire washer. This E21 code means that the water is not pumping out of your appliance fast enough. Check the drain hose for any kinks or clogs. Also, make sure the drain hose is no more than 8 inches down in the drain pipe. I suggest resetting your appliance, by either unplugging it or shutting the power off at your home's circuit breaker, for 3-5 minutes. Restore power and start any cycle. I ask that you please follow up with a comment on the post, at your convenience, to advise if further troubleshooting is needed or if your appliances status has changed successfully. Hope this is helpful.

Front load washer e21


Good Morning Friend,

I see that you are receiving an E21 on your Frigidaire washer, model# ATF6000ES. The E21 error code states that water is not pumping out fast enough. Here are a couple of suggestions that you can try.

    1)Check the drain hose for any kinks or clogs. Also, make sure that the drain hose is only 6-8 inches down in the drain pipe. If the drain hose gets backed up with water this error can occur.

    2)Make sure that the actual drain pipe, where the drain hose goes into, is only a maximum height of 8 feet. If it is longer than 8 feet, you will need to cut some of the pipe off.

    3)Make sure that your homes drain pipes are not clogged. If they are, you will need to unclog them. Call a plumber if necessary.

    After checking the above suggestions, reset your washer by either unplugging it or shutting the power off at your homes circuit breaker, for 3-5 minutes. When you restore power, start any cycle on your washer. If you are still receiving an E21 error code, I suggest contacting your local authorized technician for further assistance. They will be able to diagnose your washer and determine why you are receiving an E21 on your appliance. Hope this is helpful.

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.

My frigidaire washer has e21 error code and wont start


Hello - The error code "E21" typically means the water is not draining properly or not pumping out fast enough. Does the washer making a humming noise? If so, either the drain hose may be kinked or the drain in the house is clogged. Once you have confirmed and cleaned the hose and if issue continues contact a professional to move forward accurately. The unit may possibly have a faulty pump or control board.

I have a frigidaire affinity washer and e21 appears on display. what does it mean


E21 is slow drain. this means there is something clogging the filter in the hose from the tub to the pump. 1. unplug unit. 2. remove bottom access panel on the front. 3 be ready for water to spill lots of towels you can throw them back in washer when this procedure is done, so don't worry, pack the towels around the hose that comes from the bottom of the tub to the the pump 4 remove the clamp holding the tub to the pump 5 gentle remove the hose this is where you may get wet 6 reach into the hose you will feel a filter (cup like with holes in it) work is out of the hose it will be tuff but it will come out 8 now you have it in your hand clean it out all good 9 put it back it must be there so don't think of leaving it out , you must push it all the way back down until it is set in the grove for the lip of the basket. 10 reassemble the unit

Ok you have a front load washer made by Electrolux. Prbably says Fridgedaire.
E21-water not pumping out fast enough.
There could be a clog in the filter or a kinked hose. Check all the hoses and the filters. Some models have inline filters just before the pump. Filters are designed to protect the pump.

If you need further assistance please feel free to contact.
