E21 indicates that water is not draining from the machine fast enough. This can be caused by a kink in the drain hose, a problem with the pump or a problem with the pressure sensor.

On my washer, there's a copy of the service manual inside the machine - remove two screws in the back and take off the top. The manual includes the error codes and the steps to take.

I had the code E21 error (not draining) on my 2012 Electrolux EWFLS70JTS0, which I'm guessing is similar to a Frigidaire Front Load Washer. After reading about the potential causes being related to drain or pump obstructions, I decided to try forcing compressed air into the drain hose at the rear of the washer to see if I could push out whatever got into the system. So I moved the washing machine out from the wall, and pulled the drain hose out from its wall inlet. No disassembly required. Then I placed the trigger air nozzle from my compressor into the drain hose that's connected to the back of the machine, and held it in place with my hand so that most of the air pressure would go up the hose and into the machine.
Once I pulled the trigger to start the air flow it only took a few seconds to see bubbles appearing in the washer's tub. At that point it seemed any obstruction was now pushed out (where it went, I'm not sure. Somewhere in the standing water in tub I suspect).
I suppose it would be just as effective to use a garden hose with water (if you don't have an air compressor), but a little more messy. Anyway, as soon as I put it in "quick wash" mode (which starts with a drain cycle), it drained fine. 100% problem solved! No more error code. And no repair bill!. I just hope that whatever was restricting the drain flow does not find its way back into the system again. It's been a couple of days and so far, so good.

E21 error is showing on my electrolux EWF14811 washing machine. What does this mean and how do I clear it?


E21 means a problem with the water draining.
Could be defective: drain pump, pressure switch, wiring, current leak between heating element and ground and finally main board.
Also could be drain filter or drain tube (kinked or clogged) and leaks from water circuit on pressure switch.

What does error code mean e21


Manual says E21 is 'Off Line'. Not much to go on there but I am guessing that is probably referring to something that is plugged into the serial ports on the side - perhaps it is looking for an external kitchen printer of something along those lines.

Error #e21


Having had it for half a year - how come no warranty? If you acquired it through regular means and still have purchase documentation then back to the retailer it goes. The problems you mention are definite - firm ware errors and seller/manufacturer responsibility. Suggest you also contact Support on Kodak website to discuss the problem - you do no have to discuss source if that is an embarrassment.
