Question about Whirlpool Duet GHW9150P Front Load Washer

1 Answer

F 21 error code I came down with 1 minute estimated time remaining, and it was still spinning with soap and water in the machine. I checked again 20 minutes later and the water and soap was still in there, the machine was turned off and blinking F-21. I tried drain/spin, rinse/spin... nothing helped it kept blinking that, and then I tried rinse/spin one more time, woke up in the morning and the cycle was finished like normal. I tried another load, no problem, then another, and the same problem happened only it didn't have water and soap in there anymore. Any info you might have would be much appreciated! Thanks! :)

"F21" is a long drain error code. This is most commonly caused by something obstructing the drain pump, or drain lines. The following link explains:

http://www.fixya.com/support/r1484065-f21_error_code_whirlpool_duet_kenmore

I would begin by checking the drain pump reservoir for small debris. You would be amazed as to what finds its way into these pumps. The link I provided also gives instructions on how to check the drain pump.

If you clear the drain pump and the problem still presists, verify all the drain lines are clear. If all these preliminary checks still result in an error code, more than likely the drain pump is damaged and requires replacement.

If you have any questions, or require additional assistance, please let me know. I hope this helps you.

Code f02 comes up. washer will not spin.


F02 error could be caused by the over use of soap, you need to make sure your using 2 tablespoons of HE soap, 1/4 cap at the most.
Over sudsing, could cause the water pump to run longer, the pump is designed for 15 min duty cycle which means, 15 minutes on to 45 minutes off. The computer may sense too much soap, and continue to pump. HE soap will cure that, along with SUD error, possible F09 (overflow condition), you may also notice the timing is wrong, HE soap works well in these machines and F/l washer go hand in hand

I cleaned the pump filter after getting sud error. now i get F 21 code.


Press the pause cancel button 2 times this should clear it. If it does not and the filter and drain hose are clear you will need to replace the pump.

My Whirlpool Duet Font Loader Washer stopped 1 minute before the end of the spin cycle; and I need to know how to reset it so that I can start another load of laundry.


Remove the front panelfbee677.jpg and check the pump filterd05d32e.jpg for objects8b65c4c.jpg then grab the tech sheet behind the white box and use the diagnostic instructions.
You have any non-HE soap in there or 2 much the machine will overamp and act all weird and then shut down with error code flashing. If it is an F-21 it means a Long drain. Possible cause: Clogged filter, clogged/failed pump.de495ab.jpg

F21 error on kenmore he2plus washmachine. Door locks. Due to no spinning and water remaining in the machine? I run the rinse/drain&spin program (15 minutes) several times. it stays at 15min remaining...


"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.

Whirlpool duet pump stays on


try running the load with out soap
you could be oversoaping each and everytime
these machines have sud sensors and will continue to run the pump as long as suds remain in the sump
watch the load as it goes through the wash cycle
if you see suds and did not add soap then there you go
these machines do not need anything more than 1 tblspoon per load
1/8 the water 1/8 the soap

Whirlpool duet sport washer powering off during spin cycle


I had this problem with new duet sport washing machine. Service was out to fix under warranty (4 trips!) replacing water sensor and boards. Finally checked outlet and was told no neutral. ?? Charged us for that visit since not covered. Plugged into another outlet and it worked. Had electrician in, replaced original outlet (although saw no sign of bad connection) and washer worked again! Yippee until today when I had the same issues. Tried in another 2 outlets and still shut down after a few minutes (and in those few minutes it never really ran as it should) Went out to get an outlet sensor ($8 at hardware store). Plugged in and found no errors. Started washer again and it did run and completed cycle. Although estimate 1 minute of final spin cycle took almost 25 minutes (on QUICK wash no less!) Will have to monitor. See if we get lights on outlet sensor next time washer doesn'twork, see what other things in house are running, etc. (although washer on dedicated line). ONLY change since this happenned: We replaced our 30 y.o. electrical box. You'd think this would be better???

The washer drew half a tub of water on the "Bulky items" cycle, and stopped. All the lights on the cycle dial light up and flash, the machine beeps and the me error message in the "estimated time remaining" field is "Ld". I've tried to shut the machine down and change the cycle to "drain and spin" but it will not agitate, won't drain or spin.
