If you are certain that all pipes are clear, then you may wish to check the pressure pot & pressure switch ( & small hose joining the two as this could be telling lies to the program unit. If the machine is emptying but the switch fails to read the level correctly, it can cause the same sort of error problem. Pressure pots can fill with the "grey soap gunk" and switches pressure are a reletively common fault also. Good luck

Suggestions: First see that the exit hose behind your machine is inserted at a particular height, ie about 3 feet above ground level, then into the standpipe in your wall. If things dont work plug off the wall, open up behind, you will see a thin pipe coming down from the pressure switch to the drain area. Disconnect this pipe carefully from the top and blow into it, it should be free. If blocked clear, if broken or damaged change. Refit carefully.

This is a useless machine. I had it and after about 14 months, in quick succession, the pump broke and then the timer broke. A friend with the same machine had the same experience. AVOID!

You may have a bad valve. The multi valve is cold and the single is hot. You can go into test mode and check them out to see if how the are fuctioning. Caution must be used. DO NOT GO INTO TO TEST MODE WITH CLOTHES IN UNIT AS IT WILL NOT BALANCE OUT FIRST AND WILL BOUNCE ALL OVER, AGAIN DO NOT DO THIS.
here is how to acces the test mode
With the unit off
Press and hold 'spin speed' and 'soil level'
turn the power on
press the start button to advance
once the tub will rotate clockwise
2nd time low spin speed
3rd high spin
4th inlet valve prewash
5th inlet main wash
6th hot water
8th tumble counter clockwise
9 heater comes on for 3 seconds
10 circulation pump
12 power off
again do not attempt this with clothes in the unit.
if the valves don't activate fully than it is a bad valve and it has to be replaced.

Unplug the machine. Unscrew the 3 screws under the front edge of the washer. The service technician manual is attached to the panel that slides down and off. Find F21 code. See suggested procedures. Note: My drain pump filter had a baby wash cloth in it along with some change that was disrupting the flow. It is exceptionally easy to remove, clean, and reinstall. Just line up installation notches when reinstalling. Whirlpool should have mentioned this filter in the User & Care Guide, but I could not find it anywhere in there.
