Question about Washing Machines
Receiving Error Code F21. Please help! Kenmore elite smart wash quiet pak 4
The F21 error code is an indication that the unit has too long of a drain out condition. If the control calls for the unit to drain & the water does not drain out in 8 minutes or less the unit will stop & flash the F21 error code. I would recommend checking the drain pump & pressure switch circuit.
Clear pump of debris. Tilt machine. Take off front panel. Unscrew large white drain plug. Remove debris.
Unplug from power source...remove front lower panel (3 sheet metal screw wirh 1/4" drive head located on the lower lop of the panel)...open pump strainer (looks like a large stove knob, Turn it counter clokwise, lookout! lots of water will gush out... back flush the pump by filling the outet of the drain hose ( this may dislodge debris that may jam your pump)...re-assemble, plug to power, and turn-on. That will help get rid off the debris.
It can be done if you are patient and able to figure out how the plastic thing comes apart. Good luck!
