Question about Washing Machines
Had a washcloth stuck in lint trap. I took everything apart and removed the rag. However, the drain pump is still continuously running. I have done all the diagnostic tests and everything is good except C8: the draining does not stop.
You might want to try manually filling the machine with water using buckets or a hose. Perhaps there is some type of switch that is stuck on. My thought is that if you fully load the Machine with water and let it run through it cycles it may somehow reset the switch. It's worth a shot.

Unplug the machine. Unscrew the 3 screws under the front edge of the washer. The service technician manual is attached to the panel that slides down and off. Find F21 code. See suggested procedures. Note: My drain pump filter had a baby wash cloth in it along with some change that was disrupting the flow. It is exceptionally easy to remove, clean, and reinstall. Just line up installation notches when reinstalling. Whirlpool should have mentioned this filter in the User & Care Guide, but I could not find it anywhere in there.

SOURCE: Water doesn't drain
you could have a bad drain pump.
have you checked the hoses that come from the bottom of the tub to the drain pump for anything that might be stuck in there,also check the hose that comes off the drain pump to the wall and look for an obstruction.
