Question about Whirlpool Washing Machines
My whirlpool washer has an f21 error. We have taken the front off and declogged, but we are still getting the f21 error.
Hi, you say you have de-clogged it? But where? There is a water trap / housing that fills with water and forces air up a tube to close the contacts on an electrical switch. Have you found this housing and confirmed it's clear? With the water drained and F21 showing, pull the tube carefully off the 'air switch' Do not electrocute yourself but listen for a click. If you hear one, the housing is not letting the water drain quickly enough. If there is no air in the tube, maybe the switch is sticking? Disconnect it and see what happens. Let me know and leave feedback if i have helped. Regards jb

Welcome to FixYa
F21 error is displayed when the washer is unable to drain, press PAUSE/CANCEL button twice to clear the display. After this please check the drain hose and drain pump filter for any blockages and make sure it is not clogged with foreign particles. You can also check the drain pump to verify that its working. Please get back to me if you have any other questions.
