The drain pump's filter most likely was clogged. You will need to open the front lower panel. It has 3 screws at the bottom near front edge. Once opened, you will see a white plastic cylinder with cover. Open it by turning counter clockwise and pull it. All the solid object that causes to clog the drain filter pump are there, coins, lint, etc...

My front loading Crosley washing machine is showing error code 21. What does that code mean?


Can't remember the exact error code, but my crosley front loader would not spin. I found out this was because all the water was not being pumped out. I wash a lot of dog blankets and found out the drain basket was completely blocked. I was able to remove and clean from the back and this fixed my problem. I guess it could be the pump but check this basket first. The way I did it from the back was hard so I suspect there is a better way to access the basket.

Maytag washer throwing fault code 21


An "F21" or "F02" error code is indicative of a slow draining cycle, normally caused by a clogged or kinked drain hose. If an "F21" or "F02" error code appears, check the drain hose on the back of your washer to ensure that it is not clogged or bent. Once the drain hose has been unblocked, the error code should disappear and the machine drain properly. However, if you have a high efficiency washing machine and the error code continues to appear, make sure you are using the correct detergent; because high efficiency machines use much less water than traditional washing machines, they require the use of a low sudsing detergent. Traditional detergents may produce too many suds, which can block the machine's drain hose and lead to slower draining cycles.

What does f-21 means when it blinks and your washer machine stop


Hello & Welcome to FixYa

F21 error 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.

HE 2plus problem


Hello, the F-21 blinking is an indication has a too long of a drain out condition, and what actually cause these is when the control call for the unit to drain and the water does not drain out in 8 minutes or less the unit will stop and flash F-21. So try checking the drain pump and pressure switch circuit.

Thanks

Load stops and flashes F-21


F-21 is a code that indicates "long drain".Check the drain line for kinks or obstructions. Check the pump. Check eletrical connections at the pump. Remove the hoses from the pump and use a flashlight to look into the suction port. Look for anything clogging the pump (like the occasional stray sock) and check the pump impeller. Make sure there are no broken/missing blades and that the impeller will spin freely. If any blades are broken/missing or if you cannot get the impeller to spin freely, the pump is defective. Hopefully it's just a clogged pump, drain line, or a jammed impeller. Hope this helped and best wishes.

Whirlpool Duet Washer has done GREAT for two years..now suddenly,


this means your drain pump is clogged--- there are 3 screws at the bottom of the lower front panel. Remove these screws and there is a drain pump cleanout located in the middle. Twist this off by hand can clean out the debris--- WATCH OUT LOTS OF WATER will come out so have towels ready.
