Question about Whirlpool Duet GHW9150P Front Load Washer

1 Answer

The F21 signal keeps flashing.

I have tried all the suggestions in the manual for checking any drain problems, everything seems OK. The Rinse/Spin cycle works but as soon as I try to run a normal cycle, it won't work and flashes the F21 signal. Once it also flashed F27--I don't even know what that means? Can anyone help me??

    The washer keeps reading "F21" mid way through a cycle whenever we try to do a load of laundry. Nothing is clogged, but we get a lot of suds and then it reads "SD" usually before it reads "F21." We are only using "High Efficiency" detergent and it still does it. We have only had the Washer for a year.

F21 is long drain, failed to drain in 8 mins. f27 is overfill, overfill contacts on pressure sw closed. If unit did actually successfully drain normally then pressure sw is likely the problem.
1. did pump come on? if no replace pump
2. is unit draining at normal rate? no then clean pump.
if yes on both replace pressure sw.
to second poster if getting suds error when using HE then you likely are using to much detergent. If avail run a clean washer cycle.
or normal cycle with bleach or fabric softner, no clothes

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!

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.

My washer stopped and was flashing F21 (drainage issue) so I called a plumber. He checked the hoses and removed the panel and cleaned the drain trap. It didn't fix the problem it's still won't drain. It...


The SUD message relates to overdose of detergent detected during the Wash Cycle.
This may signify a bad pump, an extra heavy load, excessive detergent or excessive suds.
If too much detergent was used, run the washer through a Rinse/Spin cycle, then a Normal cycle, without adding any detergent. This should clear the unit of the excess detergent.
Check the drain hose and make sure it is not plugged or kinked. this seems to be the reason as to why your unit is not fixed even after trying to solve F21......

F28 is a communication error which usually means there is a connection that has come loose. Removing the top and unpplugging and replugging the connectors in will fix 75% of these codes. If the bottom toe panel is not on it will also give you an F28.
Good luck

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.

Bosch classixx 1000 washing machine - stops on spin


Washing machine stops at the spin cycle - light flashes. Have to drain water out manually. Happened last week and was then able to run an empty rinse cycle. Machine worked normally for another week. Same problem today but have had to drain water manually from the drum after trying an empty 90 wash and rinse cycle (both stopped on the Spin and flashed). Any ideas? Thanks. x

Washer will not leave the drain cycle


Press PAUSE/CANCEL twice to clear the display then
  • Check the drain hose and make sure it is not plugged or kinked.
  • Check the electrical connections at the pump and make sure the pump is running.
  • Check the drain pump filter for foreign objects.
  • If the above does not correct the problem, replace the pump.

It's because of a Long Drain condition. If the drain time exceeds 8 minutes, the water valves are turned off the code is flashed.
But Note: After 4 minutes the "Sud" error is usually displayed, then 4 minutes later the error code is displayed.
