"F21" is a Long Drain error code. This generally means you have a clog somewhere in the drainage system. In particular, the drain pump or drain lines. The following link explains:

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

This problem is usually corrected by checking and cleaning out the drain pump reservoir. If you clean out the drain pump and the verify the drain lines are clear (including the drain line from the bottom of the wash tub to the inlet side of the drain pump) and the problem still persists, the drain pump my be damaged. If this is the case, you will need to replace the pump.

NOTE: The other error code may be "Sd" which is a Suds detect error. This error can appear in conjunction with the other error code if the pump is not functioning, or is clogged, and air is detected in the pump. More than likely, this code will disappear when the drain problem is resolved.

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

The machine wont empty water gives a code of 03 I have cleaned the drain filter and check the drain hose still wont drain water unit is 1 1/2 years old


03 is drain error, as you know. The machine is sensing that the water isnt draining enough in 5 minutes...Unless there is an electronic problem the main reasons for the error code is because the drain hose is blocked, or the pump has something preventing it from turning, like a coin jammed in the impeller, or the pump motor itself needs to be replaced....These pump motors tend to get detritis in behind the impeller shaft seal and this often causes the pump to fail.....Good luck....Nomess

Wont spin, wont drain has codes


Frigidaire, Zanussi, AEG, & More....

EFO = Filter Blocked (low flow) and it is accessible from the bottom front of the machine.

1. there is a blockage in the filter or drain hose.takes too long to drain out.
2. over dosing of powder or liquid. again can cause an air lock in the pump which slows the drain pump down.

Check the filter and drain hose and test again. this fault will only come up at the end of a cycle.
You do not need to reset the machine to get rid of the fault code as this is automatically deleted.

Run an empty load with no detergent in an attempt to get rid of the code.

Washer wont drain, get f02 code. i have ran


It does not take much to damage the pump impeller or motor on these small drain pumps. Since the error code is generated if the drain cycle exceeds 8 minutes, if the pump is damaged and can't pump at the required volume, the error code will continue to appear until the pump is replaced. If the pump requires replacement, the following link explains how:

http://www.fixya.com/support/r3574350-replacing_the_drain_pump_in_a_front_load

Replacements can be purchased online at any of the following websites:

searspartsdirect.com
pcappliancerepair.com
appliancepartspros.com
repairclinic.com

Prices vary between these sites, so shop and compare.

If you have any questions about this repair, or need additional assistance, please let me know. I hope this helps you.

NOTE: Have you also checked all the drain lines? In particular, the drain line that runs from the bottom of the drain tub to the inlet side of the pump. Small articles of clothing can become lodged in this area and restrict drainage.

You can check the drain or the filter. You will have to pull it out of the space it is now to access it. Items will get stuck in the drain clogging it.
