SOURCE: Kenmore HE 3T, F21 error code, discharge pump continues to run

"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.

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

Does anyone know how much it costs to fix a samsung dishwasher that shows e3 code? Is it a big fault or simple fix?

you may have a problem on the draining system. Previous cycle not fully drained and holding off the new cycle.
remove the drain line from its discharge position and hook up a 5 gal container for it to drain in ( maintaining the necessary height for the anti syphon loop )
Select programme 7 which should allow the drain pump to kick in straight away
You should be able to hear the pump running at the bottom of the machine and observe a discharge from the hose.
The chances are the pump needs removing and cleaning.
or - the drain line where the machine discharges is backing up and not allowing a free discharge.

Washer will not drain even after changing water pump

There is a drain pump that is separate from the main pumps on most kenmore elites. There is also a check valve that could be stuck open. 8 of 10 times, however, if the machine was working fine and is now not fully draining, this is due to a drain hose pluggage or kink somewhere between the drain pump and the discharge into the sink. I've seen grease totally block the discharge into the sink trap and cause this problem. This should be thoroughly checked and must be 100% clear for the dw to drain properly.

The discharge pump on my Samsung washer (WF7520 N1B) is noisy and weak. Where can I get a new pump? The pump part number appears to be DC96-01567B, though that may be the wiring harness...

My dishwasher is not draining. How do I fix this please.

first open the access cover by the floor after turning off power,then remove the hose clamp on the discharge side of the pump and with a shallow pan catch any water that flows out of pump,then check the hose from the discharge side of the pump to the garbage disposal or where ever it drain to,if any of these are clogged the pump either wont drain or will not run to drain,then remove the 2 wires off the pump and check the motor windings for continuity,every unit is different so you need to get this motors resistance specs and check its resistance if its open replace it

How do I hook up a sump pump do it go to a drain or out to the lawn.road

Most areas it is not up to code to discharge stormwater into a public sewer. In other areas it is not permitted to discharge into street. This can errode the streeet and causing freezing. There is a pop up device to allow you to discharge into your yard. It will pop up when pressure lifts it allowing the water to discharge in your yard. Be sure that the water doesn't flow into a neighbor's yard. You will have to make provisions for the outlet to drain in the winter. I would keep the pipe below frost line. Where pipe turns up I would drill small weep hole and back fill area with sand or gravel to allow the pipe to drain when pump turns off.

Water won't discharge from tub

If the pump is not bad and drain hose is connected right. if connected to a garbage disposal make sure the plastic is knock out of drain hole. If still does not drain check voltages at drain pump. If under warranty service call should be free.

How high can I pump up to a drain.

I have the same question....since I own a cabin with no basement floor drains. I have to pump my washer discharge to a main level drain.

To check the elevation needed, hook a garden hose to the discharge line and, after running the discharge end outside, raise or elevate the line using a line and tree branch to determine the height at which pump discharge quits. 33 feet equals appoximately 1 atmos or 14.7 psig.

Dishwasher does not pump water out at the end of it's cycle

First check that there isn't anything blocking the drain area inside the bottom of the dishwasher. Sometimes plastic wrap, a small Tupperware, etc. top gets sucked against the drain and blocks discharge. If nothing is there, (look really good, by getting out as much water as possible!!!). If nothing there, see if you have an "air-break" installed at the kitchen sink, this prevents backflow from the sink drain back into the dishwasher, check it by removing the decorative cover and see if it is clean and has no obstructions blocking water flow.

Another thing to check, is if you recently had a new disposal installed, it's possible that the dishwasher inlet was never "punched out" to allow for the dishwasher to drain thru the disposal. If none of those, continue with the investigation!

Check to see if some broken glass might have worked its' way into the drain area, beneath the drain discharge guard. You'll have to remove the cover, some are just clipped in place while others have a screw holding them in place.

If still nothing, it is possible that something has worked its' way all the way into the discharge pump section and you'll need to remove the dishwasher from under the counter to get at the pump section.

Normally when the dishwasher is in the pump out sequence, you can hear the pump motor and impeller spinning, if you can't, then proceed with removing the dishwasher and disconnect the power or shut off the breaker to it. It is quite possible that something has jammed the discharge impeller and is preventing pump out. Again, if you can hear the motor and impeller running, it could still have an obstruction. Bucket and towels will be needed to soak up all any water that you couldn't remove before pulling the dishwasher out from under the countertop.

If there is no obstruction in the discharge pump section and the discharge value (usually a simple rubber flap) is moving freely, then it could be the pump out solinoid (an electronic valve that opens the discharge port for pumping out water when the dishwasher is done washing and is signaled to drain. You should be able to cycle the dishwasher through a short cycle (wash & rinse) to see if everything is working OK. You'll need to reconnect the power, water inlet and discharge (drain) lines first to check this option.
