"F20" is a No Water Detect error, while "F21" is a Long Drain error. The following links explain:

You may have more than one problem, so read through all information thoroughly. The one problem, however, that is common to both error codes, is the drain pump. It could be that you have something obstructing the pump or the drain lines, causing both error codes to be generated. This may be a good place to start.

NOTE: If after cleaning the drain pump it is not running, or if it does not pump at the proper volume, the manufacturer recommends replacing the pump. Reliable sources to purchase a replacement include searspartsdirect.com and appliancepartspros.com. Just use your model number for your search criteria.

If you have any questions, please let me know. I hope this helps you.

How do I reset/clear error codes F20 and F21 on my Maytag commercial washers?


Try to turn off power for 2 minutes and fool the washer into thinking it is new vs suffering a water loss. If that doesn't work see if there is a reset button on the mother board.

My washer stops &and F-20 appears on viewer. Whats wrong with my washer


water problem check screens in hoses and valves !! rrors F1, F11 and F20
  • Error F1 indicates a communication error between the computer and the washer. Unplug the washer for a minute and plug it back in, as this may correct the problem. Error F11 indicates a motor control error. It can be caused by improper voltage. Unplug the washer and check the connections. This may fix the problem. Error F20 indicates lack of water entering the machine. If there is no water in the washer, check that the water valves are turned on. If there is water in the washer, press "Stop" twice to drain the washer. Unplug the machine and check the hose connections.

Getting f20 error code, how to check flow meter operation


Check for stuck socks or something just under the door seal at the bottom of the drum. Check filter for blockage and all outlet pipes. Check the pressure switch hose for any holes as it may have rubbed on the drum and created a small hole in it. Make sure flow meter is level and not at any angle.

Hello,

Welcome to FixYa.

There are several things which can manifest in a "F21" error, however you stated at the bottom the repair person indicated they remedied an "F20" error.

Before proceeding and generalizing on many things which can cause either of these faults, can you verify it is indeed an "F21" error message in the display ?

I will look for your reply and help move you forward in any manner I can.

Regards,

Macmarkus :)

What does F21 mean on the digital screen?


Hi

Error F21 means F21 error means that the drain time has exceeded 8 minutes; this will turn off the water valves. Error code SD means LONG DRAIN. This error appears when the drain time exceeds 8 minutes and the water valves turn off. After 4 minutes the "Sd" error will be displayed, and then 4 minutes later the F21 error code will be displayed. Press PAUSE/CANCEL two times to clear the display. Please Check the drain hose and make sure it is not plugged or kinked. If the drain hose if fine then unplug the washer and check the electrical connections at the pump and make sure the pump is running. Check the drain pump filter for foreign objects. To access the drain pump and filter remove the front kick panel and trace the drain hose to the bottom of the washer, drain pump would be located there. If you are not able to access it, then replace the back panel as well. Plug in washer or reconnect power. If the issue is still not resolved then you would need to replace the drain pump.
Hope this helps... Please post back if you need more information.

Whirlpool washer error code & water doesn't drain all the way


Hello,

F20 indicates insufficient water coming into the machine. I've seen this over and over and over again. The number 1 reason this error code appears is clogged screens in the water inlet valve. If you clean the screens and everything is ok, then it could be the valve itself or a kinked water line in the back.

Note: to clean the filter, you need to take the water lines off the inlet valve (the hot and cold) and pull the screen out with needle nose plyers making sure you don't cruch the screen.

Hope this helps. Good luck and thank you for using fixya.com :)

Whirlpool duet washer flashing sud then f21 ????????


The "SUD" error is in direct relationship the other error code. "F21" is a Long Drain error. The following link explains:

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

If something is preventing water from pumping through the drain pump, you will often get a "SUD" error as air is developed in the pump. Make sure you double check all the drain lines as well.

If you have questions, or require additional assistance, please let me know before you rate the solution. I hope this helps you.
