F21 error on Kenmore washer

The F21 drain indicates a long drain. There are several reasons for the error. The most common causes are debris in the drain pump filter or excessive suds. If you aren't using HE detergent or if you use too much detergent, the excess suds may be the cause. First, remove the clothes from the washer. Try running the washer without adding more detergent.

To check the filter, you will need to unplug the washer. Next take off the bottom panel. Locate the drain pump and the adjacent filter. Have a bucket handy to catch the water from the pump. Open the filter and remove any foreign objects. Look into the pump and check for any objects that got past the filter. Remove anything that doesn't belong. See the cabinet and pump diagrams here: to help you take apart the unit and locate the pump filter. Close up the filter and try running the washer (again no clothes and no detergent). If the error does not recur, you've solved the problem.

If the F21 error repeats, then the pump or the water pressure switch could be faulty. If water has been pumped out of the washer, then check/replace the switch. You should also check the wiring between the switch and the main control board.

I hope this helps.

Where is the pump/filter located on my Kenmore Front Loader Washe

It is just behind the lower panel. Remove the 3 screws from the lower panel (the panel just below the door), the screws are on the lip on the bottom of the panel facing the front of the machine. Pull down and toward you to get the panel off. The filter and clean out are in the center. Unscrew the cap to remove and clean out, but have lots of towels ready, there will be water coming out.

Kenmore 80 Series draining problem

Check the following before replacing the timer.

1. Clogged drain line or water pump
Check to see if there's something stuck inside the pump or the drain hose connected to the pump (pump is usually located at the bottom and towards the back of the washing machine).

2. Water Pump
If the drain line isn't clogged, you may have a problem with the water pump such as a frozen pulley or a broken impeller. If that's the case replace the water pump. Note: if you have a belt driven washer, check the belt(s) for cracks, as this would be a perfect time to replace the belt(s) if needed.

The filter screen is located in the front just above the drawer. Pull out the drawer and look under the front edge of the machine you will see 3 small screws. removing these will allow you to remove the lower front cover and access the filter.
