Question about Kenmore HE2 Plus Front Load Washer
Can I fix this problem myself? I have had the f21 drain problem several times, and when the tech comes to fix it he is in and out in twenty minutes and usually has a handful of socks or other junk that was plugging up the drain way. He says this is an easy fix. Right now I am waiting TWO weeks to get it fixed again, and I need my washer. Can I fix this myself?
This is a job you shd do, not pay for each time, your dealer is taking you for a ride (or wash). The filter on your pump is probably clogged with lint and stuff. You have to remove the bottom front panel, 3 torx screws underneath. Lift washer to place wooden blocks to reach screws. The panel will drop and come off. Drain off the excess water from the drain pipe you see. The white filter cover is right in front. Get yourself a plastic bag to collect water. Unscrew the filter cover and twist the filter out. Clean out all the stuff and put it back in carefully. Check your pump too, comes after the filter.

Welcome to FixYa
F21 error code is displayed when the washer is unable to drain, press PAUSE/CANCEL button twice to clear the display. After this please check the drain hose and drain pump filter for any blockages and make sure it is not clogged with foreign particles. You can also check the drain pump to verify that its working. Please get back to me if you have any other questions.
