"F21" is a long drain error code. I have a link that you may try to see if there may be some additional things you haven't tried yet:

http://www.fixya.com/support/r1484065-f21_error_code_whirlpool_duet_kenmore

Try unplugging the washer for at least 30 minutes (if you haven't tried that already). This will reset the Central Control Unit (CCU). This is the main "brain" of your washer. Sometimes this is all that is required to correct momentary glitches. If the error code reappears, check your drain pump for obstructions. This is the most common cause. If you still have questions, please let me know. I hope this helps you.

Whirlpool duet steam washer error f21


The F21 code is a ' drain issue ' --- if you remove the bottom panel from the machine you will see the water pump right there,, just in front of the pump you will see a clean out area,, unscrew counter clockwise and remove the catch screen,,, it most likely has a few things in it ,, clean out - re-install and start the cycle. and the F21 code should be gone AND washer is back up and running.

Ok I cleared the drain and re ran the washer and a F-21 code came on, what next?


Hmmm ok the F21 code also means long drain time and the recommended fix is to clean the pump filter...if ya clear that code by pressing the PAUSE/CANCEL button two time and the F21 code returns the next step would be to replace the pump since it probably is running slower that its suppose to most likely because of a weak motor on the pump
The part number for the pump assembly is 280187

What does f21 on washer mean?


Hi, this advice is for Kenmore Elite and Whirlpool Duet model FRONT LOADERS displaying the “F21” error code.

“F21” is a Long Drain error. If the drain time exceeds 8 minutes this error code will be displayed. In addition, a “SUDS” error may also be displayed. This may be an indication of a drain pump problem and/or clog in the drain line. You will need to check the following:

  1. First, attempt to unplug the washer for at LEAST 30 minutes to reset the Central Control Unit (CCU). Sometimes this is all that is required to correct momentary glitches with the unit. If the error code returns, proceed to step 2.
  2. Check the drain hose to make sure it is not kinked or clogged.
  3. Check the electrical connections to the pump and ensure the pump is running.
  4. Remove the drain pump filter and check for foreign objects and/or debris.
To check the drain pump, click on the following link for step-by-step instructions.

If the above procedures do not correct the problem, it is recommended by the manufacturer to replace the drain pump.

Take care

F21 Whirlpool duet washer, removed front panel unclogged restarted and still f21? Tech came in and had no idea said he smelled something burning, must of been his imagination.


ohh, duets are such a treat.

If the drain time exceeds eight minutes, “F21” will be displayed,
the water valves will turn off and the pump will stop running.
Press PAUSE/CANCEL to drain the machine. The display will be
cleared and the machine will turn off after a maximum of eight
minutes.

Possible Causes/Procedure
1. Check the drain hose and make sure it is not plugged or
kinked.
2. Unplug washer or disconnect power.
3. Check the electrical connections at the pump and make sure
the pump is running.
4. Check the drain pump filter for foreign objects.
5. Plug in washer or reconnect power.
6. If the above does not correct the problem, go to step 7.
7. Unplug washer or disconnect power.
8. Replace the pump.

this is what Whirlpool says, but we have found that this doesnt always work.

Whirlpool duet washer F21 error code. Just bought


"F21" is a Long Drain error. The following link explains how to torubleshoot:

http://www.fixya.com/support/r1484065-f21_error_code_whirlpool_duet_kenmore

What this usually means is that you have something clogged in the drain pump and it needs to be cleaned out. In the majority of the cases, this corrects the problem. However, if you JUST purchased this washer, and it is brand new (not used), I would recommend you use your manufacturer warranty (good for the 1st year in most cases) to avoid the risk of voiding it. The conditions of some warranties, prohibit the consumer from opening the appliance and attempting any repairs. Read the find print just to be sure.

If you have any questions, please let me know. I hope this helps you.
