SOURCE: Affinity E21 error

E21 means "Not pumping out fast enough". Could be debris caught in the pump inlet sump or pump body.
a75737b.jpg Disconnect the inlet sump from the pump. Disconnect the outlet hose from the pump. Remove the (2) screws, one on each side, holding the pump housing to the washer base. Unplug the wires from the pump motor and lift the pump assembly out.

If you just paused the washer and now displays a error try draining any existing water all out of the machine.Before re filling it see if you still get the error message.I'll be happy to guide you through this.

Suggestion:
Plug off the mains. You have to look for screws below the front kick-panel, the panel comes down & out. The pump is on the right side. Be prepared for dirty water. There is a drain hose here, disconnect & drain out. There could be a lot of water. Inside the big flexible tube (coming from the tub bottom) is the filter, be prepared to find all sorts of junk here, clean out. Examine your pump also, clean out the impeller. Carefully refit all. Your machine would be fine. Don’t wait for the machine to jam to look into your filter.
For some front loader models after removing the panel, the filter is in the compartment having the white screw able lid. The big hose from the bottom of your tub leads to this compartment.

SOURCE: i have a frigidaire affinity washer and e21 appears on display. what does it mean

E21 is slow drain. this means there is something clogging the filter in the hose from the tub to the pump. 1. unplug unit. 2. remove bottom access panel on the front. 3 be ready for water to spill lots of towels you can throw them back in washer when this procedure is done, so don't worry, pack the towels around the hose that comes from the bottom of the tub to the the pump 4 remove the clamp holding the tub to the pump 5 gentle remove the hose this is where you may get wet 6 reach into the hose you will feel a filter (cup like with holes in it) work is out of the hose it will be tuff but it will come out 8 now you have it in your hand clean it out all good 9 put it back it must be there so don't think of leaving it out , you must push it all the way back down until it is set in the grove for the lip of the basket. 10 reassemble the unit

    E21 frigidaire affinity won't drain


    Good Morning Friend,

    I understand you are receiving an E21 code on your Frigidaire Affinity washer, model# ATF7000E, and it is not draining. The E21 code can possibly mean that the water is not draining out fast enough. Please check the drain hose for any kinks or clogs. Also, make sure that your home's drain pipes are not clogged as well. This could also be a false code. Try resetting your appliance, by either unplugging it or shutting the power off at your home's circuit breaker, for 3-5 minutes. Sometimes there can be a miscommunication between the different boards inside your appliance. Restore power and start any cycle. I ask that you please follow up with a comment on the post, at your convenience, to advise if further troubleshooting is needed or if your appliances status has changed successfully. Hope this is helpful.

    -Best Regards-

    Front load washer e21


    Good Morning Friend,

    I see that you are receiving an E21 on your Frigidaire washer, model# ATF6000ES. The E21 error code states that water is not pumping out fast enough. Here are a couple of suggestions that you can try.

      1)Check the drain hose for any kinks or clogs. Also, make sure that the drain hose is only 6-8 inches down in the drain pipe. If the drain hose gets backed up with water this error can occur.

      2)Make sure that the actual drain pipe, where the drain hose goes into, is only a maximum height of 8 feet. If it is longer than 8 feet, you will need to cut some of the pipe off.

      3)Make sure that your homes drain pipes are not clogged. If they are, you will need to unclog them. Call a plumber if necessary.

      After checking the above suggestions, reset your washer by either unplugging it or shutting the power off at your homes circuit breaker, for 3-5 minutes. When you restore power, start any cycle on your washer. If you are still receiving an E21 error code, I suggest contacting your local authorized technician for further assistance. They will be able to diagnose your washer and determine why you are receiving an E21 on your appliance. Hope this is helpful.

      -Best regards-

    My frigidaire washer has e21 error code and wont start


    Hello - The error code "E21" typically means the water is not draining properly or not pumping out fast enough. Does the washer making a humming noise? If so, either the drain hose may be kinked or the drain in the house is clogged. Once you have confirmed and cleaned the hose and if issue continues contact a professional to move forward accurately. The unit may possibly have a faulty pump or control board.

    Frigidaire Affinity ATF6700FS2 pauses with every load


    Hello - This particular issue can be caused by quite a few reasons. Washer could be experiencing a communication error from the main control board, faulty door lock assembly or the timer itself is not operating correctly. Did you notice a humming noise? If so, either the drainage hose/pump is clogged and needs to be cleaned or could possibly have another issue with the door lock assembly or pressure switch. You can also press and hold the start/pause and cancel button together at the same time for approximately 30 seconds to display an error code on the LED. What error code does it display? However, I would suggest contacting a professional to accurately diagnose the washer.

    E21 error code


    There is a E21. Water not draining fast enough. Try holding the start/pause and cancel key together for 3 seconds. The door lock, wash, rinse and final spin leds should light. Any error codes should be displayed when holding those keys.
