Check your drain pump. It is clogged or the pump motor not working. If filter is clean than there could be something inside the pump like a wire. All of the water has to be remove before you can start a cycle.

Whirlpool duet steam washer error f21


The F21 code is a ' drain issue ' --- if you remove the bottom panel from the machine you will see the water pump right there,, just in front of the pump you will see a clean out area,, unscrew counter clockwise and remove the catch screen,,, it most likely has a few things in it ,, clean out - re-install and start the cycle. and the F21 code should be gone AND washer is back up and running.

Whirlpool duet washer-error F06 and E02


Unfortunately F06 E02 is a very bad error. It means you have an interface communication error. That means that the main control board isn't communicating with the front interface control board. You can pull the washer out and remove the 3 screws coming in from the back of the top panel. Next, the top panel will pull straight back, up, and off. Now check all the wire connections between the two control board and make sure they are all secure. If everything looks good, then the interface control board will need to be ordered and replaced.
Here is a link to the part.

I keep getting error code F21 on my kenmore elite which is a drain error the drain is not clogged and the drain hose is not clogged any ideas on what I could do?


The error code F21 is similar to F02 which both pertains to a draining problem. The usual cause is a blocked drain filter or a clogged/kinked. But since those areas are found to be not the source of the problem, the problem must be somewhere else. It is either the drain pump is broken particularly the impeller if the pump just hums/whirs or the pressure switch contacts are stuck/welded together and is, therefore, not tripping. The link below provides the detailed troubleshooting instructions the problem of this kind after the drain filter has been cleaned out.

The F28 Error Code could Just be a Fluke But it is supposed to mean that there is no water entering so to be sure before running another load be sure hoses are connected and turned on.

Duet GHW9150P Front Load Washer: Whirlpool Duet Washer - Error F21 (What is this) ...


First check your washer plug to see if the connections are tightly screwed. Next check your filter if you haven't for long.

Remove the 3 screws at the bottom of the front panel under the washer door. Your filter door will be light brown. If you find a hose there it is to drain out excess water (water that could not be drained by your pump) After you hv drained unscrew the cap and remove all the junk inside. Have a large plastic bag to catch junk and water. Refit carefully after cleaning out. If not solved, something shd be blocking your pump, check this out. Door locked? Press "end of cycle" for 3 seconds, wait for 2 minutes & try the door. F-21 filter blocked.

F21 on Whirlpool front load duet washer


"F21" is a Long Drain error code. The following link explains:

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

In most cases this is simply caused by a clogged drain pump and all that is required is a good cleaning. Read through the instructions provided in the link on how to do this. Make sure the washer is unplugged while servicing any of the internal components.

If the problem persists, you may have a drain pump that is malfunctioning or is damaged. The manufacturer recommends replacing the pump if this is the case.

Let me know if you have any questions. I hope this helps you.
