Question about Kenmore Washing Machines
Sorry to have to inform you but when u first burned out the original board then replaced it, that was a bad move as u should never replace a board without first finding out what caused it to burn out. else u get a burned out board again

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!

The LOC code merely means the control responded and locked the door. You'll find a tech sheet under the top panel of the machine to help guide you thru the diagnostic process, which is fairly involved.
LOC means it thinks the control panel is locked. This gives the ERR indication when you push the buttons. To unlock it you need to hold down the Options and Select buttons together until it reacts.
I know this may seem silly but - On the top right back corner of your washer hit it with medium force with your fist, this helps.

SOURCE: I have a Kenmore elite
Same problem happened to my daughter's whirlpool. She called a service man out and he was nice enough to tell her that the machine had been recalled and she called the company and complained and the service man came back and fixed it for free. It was a computer board problem.
