SOURCE: Error code E10 on the

E10 is a timeout code. I found the answer on google by refining my search criteria. The tap was not turned on enough for the washer to fill up in time before the timeout was reached. After restarting the washer and turning the tap on further, the washer cycle completed without error.

SOURCE: my front load Electrolux washer asks me "clean

You do not need to clean a drain pump. After you have washes so many loads of clothes, soap scum builds up in your tub and will shorten the life of your product. You just need to run it thru the "clean" cycle. You can use 1/2 cup of bleach and NO detergent or you can by a tub cleaner from most grocery stores or Walmart and use that. It'll just remove any soap scum and mineral build-up off your tub. It should be done each time you washer tells you to do it. Hope this helps. :)

SOURCE: Electrolux EWFLW65HIWO front load washer error code E21 I checked on the bottom front of my washer and there are not 3 screws or a panel how can I access the pump/filter thanks in advance for any help

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.

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-

Washer will not start any cycle

Hello Matt, I am happy to assist you!

Generally, error code E21 means that the water in your wash machine is not pumping out fast enough. First, check the drain hose for any restrictions or kinks. If you have check the hose and it appears to be clear and free, then potentially the underlying issue may be the main control board or pump. Generally it is a good idea to have a professional take a look at it to get to the root cause. Cost of parts and technical expertise entailed in these types of replacements can be a bit tricky.

Eiflw55hmb error code e21

Ok you have a front load washer made by Electrolux. Prbably says Fridgedaire.
E21-water not pumping out fast enough.
There could be a clog in the filter or a kinked hose. Check all the hoses and the filters. Some models have inline filters just before the pump. Filters are designed to protect the pump.

If you need further assistance please feel free to contact.

Have a erro code E21 What is it

The E21 error code means the water in the washer is not pumping out fast enough. The solution is to check the washer installation. Make sure the drain hose is not kinked. Make sure the drain pump has 120 volts in the drain cycle. If it reads zero the control board will need to be replaced. If not, then it's the pump.
