SOURCE: Error code F21 - thanks for your help

The F21 error code is an indication that the unit has too long of a drain out condition. If the control calls for the unit to drain & the water does not drain out in 8 minutes or less the unit will stop & flash the F21 error code. I would recommend checking the drain pump & pressure switch circuit.

Clear pump of debris. Tilt machine. Take off front panel. Unscrew large white drain plug. Remove debris.

Unplug from power source...remove front lower panel (3 sheet metal screw wirh 1/4" drive head located on the lower lop of the panel)...open pump strainer (looks like a large stove knob, Turn it counter clokwise, lookout! lots of water will gush out... back flush the pump by filling the outet of the drain hose ( this may dislodge debris that may jam your pump)...re-assemble, plug to power, and turn-on. That will help get rid off the debris.

It can be done if you are patient and able to figure out how the plastic thing comes apart. Good luck!

SOURCE: what is f21 on the kenmore he2

Hi,
"F21" is a Long Drain error. This occurs when the drain time exceeds 8 minutes. You will need to remove the bottom panel under the door by removing the two screws at the bottom edge of the panel. First, check the electrical connections to the drain pump and make sure the pump is running. Check the drain pump filter to make sure it is not clogged with debris. This is a very common problem. HINT: Before removing the drain pump filter, pull the drain hoses from the standpipe at the wall and use a shop vac to pull a vacuum on the drain hose to get rid of all residual water from the pump and drain lines. This is also a good way to get rid of minor clogs. If you do not own a shop vac, be prepared to lay down some old towels and soak up some water. There's quite a bit of residual water in the wash tub and lines (this is normal). In addition, check your drain hoses to make sure they are not clogged or kinked. If you check everything and still have the error code, replace the drain pump. Replacement parts can be found at searspartsdirect.com and repairclinic.com. Just type in your model number in the search menu. I hope this helps you.
pls rate my suggestion....

SOURCE: Washer won't drain completely. All lights flashing. F21 code is flashing.

“F21” (AKA SD) is a Long (SLOW) Drain error (LD). 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.
To check the drain pump, click on the following link for step-by-step instructions

If the above procedures do not correct the problem, it is recommended by the manufacturer to replace the drain pump.

SOURCE: Motor brushes replaced but fault

F21 means motor or control board fault. Usually its the motor. If you have replaced the brushes and it doesn't work then its most likely the motor is faulty. Not a cheap fix.

What is an F21 error means in Siemens extraklasse WM14E391 washing machine?


its a motor tachometer fault, basically the tacho on the motor (you cant get it as a spare part it comes with the motor) is faulty or the control board is faulty and the machine is unable to detect the speed of the motor, the motor may work but if the board cant detect it moving you will get this fault, fun thing about this kind of fault is theres no easy way to determine whether its the board or the tacho

F21 flashing on my bosch classixx 6 1200 express


F21 is a motor fault and in some cases can also involve a module fault. It could be as simple as the brushes need replacing or the drum has been severely out of balance.

Many thanks. For F21 fault everyone was talking about the drain valve but found one answer related to power supply n board this helped. Resetting by turning program switch to 12 o clock then turn to 6 o click then keep spin button pressed n move knob to 7 o clock position. Then release spin n move knob to 12 o clock. This way F21 got resetted.

Bosch classixx 6 1400 machine stopped working during cycle f21 on display


F21 relates to a motor or control board fault.

However, it is also caused by spikes in the mains and can be spurious.


To reset it.

Turn the appliance knob to the off or reset position, 12 o'clock.

Turn the knob to the 6 o'clock position.

Press and hold the spin button.

While holding it, turn the knob to the 7 o'clock position.

Continue holding the spin button for about 5 seconds.

Release the button.

Turn the knob to off.

When your turn it back on it should have cleared the error code
