Will not spin or drains shows F21


The F21 error on a Whirlpool Duet washer means the unit was draining slowly. This can be caused by a blocked outlet hose (kinked hose, for example), excessive suds from using non-HE detergent or too much detergent, blockages in the drain pump filter (coin catcher), or a problem with the pump.

You should be able to clear the error by pressing Pause/Cancel twice. Check your outlet hose. Then unplug the washer. Have a bucket handy to catch the water when you access the pump. Remove the toe panel from the bottom of the washer. There are three screws to remove; then you need to lift the panel slightly and pull it forward.Check the filter for foreign objects.

Test the washer by selecting a cycle and running it with no clothing or detergent. If the unit still fails, then the pump, pump motor or the pressure switch is bad. However, you should also check the wiring to the unit.

I hope this helps. Please add a comment with the model of your washer for specific directions and parts information.

My washer is saying f21 what does that mean


F21 relates to a motor or control board fault.
However, it is also caused by spikes in the mains and can be spurious.

To reset it.
Turn the appliance knob to the off or reset position, 12 o'clock.
Turn the knob to the 6 o'clock position.
Press and hold the spin button.
Whilst holding it, turn the knob to the 7 o'clock position.
Continue holding the spin button for about 5 seconds.
Release the button.
Turn the knob to off.
When your turn it back on it should have cleared the error code.

Bocsh 1400 express f21 keeps flashing


This Bosch looks like a Kenmore HE2, and may be made by the same manufacturer.

In the Kenmore HE2 manual it states:
"F" Variables [F4 to F16] (Electrical problem)
Select PAUSE/CANCEL twice to cancel the cycle.
Select DRAIN/SPIN if there is excessive water in the washer.
Re-select cycle and press START. If the problem remains, call for service.

If it's not working still, try asking advice at RepairClinic.com . They have helped me in the past, and they have parts too.

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!

F21 what can I do? Please please


Hi

F21 error in your Bosch washer relates to a motor or a control board fault. This can be reset and to reset it turn the appliance knob to the off or reset position (12 o'clock), turn the knob to the 6 o'clock and then press and hold the spin button, then while holding that button turn the knob to 7 o'clock position, continue holding spin button for 15 seconds and then turn the knob to off. After a minute turn it back on, if the error code is still there then it means that the motor or brushes in the motor should be replaced, though it is always better to replace the motor assembly completely. Hope this helps...please post back for further assistance.
