“F21” (AKA SD) is a Long (SLOW) Drain error (LD). If the drain time exceeds 8 minutes this error code will be displayed. In addition, a “SUDS” error may also be displayed. This may be an indication of a drain pump problem and/or clog in the drain line. You will need to check the following:


1.First, attempt to unplug the washer for at LEAST 30 minutes to reset the Central Control Unit (CCU). Sometimes this is all that is required to correct momentary glitches with the unit. If the error code returns, proceed to step 2.
2.Check the drain hose to make sure it is not kinked or clogged.
3.Check the electrical connections to the pump and ensure the pump is running.
4.Remove the drain pump filter and check for foreign objects and/or debris.
To check the drain pump, click on the following link for step-by-step instructions

If the above procedures do not correct the problem, it is recommended by the manufacturer to replace the drain pump.

My machine keeps stopping mid cycle with an f11 error code, what does this mean?


The troubleshooting section of my manual gives a Generic fix for F codes other than F20,F21,F22 as "Select stop twice to cancel the cycle.Select DRAIN & SPIN if there is excess water in the washer. Re-select cycle and press START If problem remains, call for service."

Not much help! Try checking the inflow by removing the hose to see if there is any debris in the inlet (rust etc.) Also could be a balance issue. Rearrange load and restart the cycle.
Or it could also be a leveling issue. Use a level to see if it needs to be raised or lowered by turning one or more of the "feet" with a crescent wrench to level the unit.

Kenmore Elite HE4t stopping in mid cycle with F abd DL errors


See Phoebe 112 latest solution! This is a common problem with these washers. For a quick fix you can usually get it going again by unplugging it for 30 mins. so the computer will reset. You will hear a slight buzzing noise when it resets. If it keeps doing it, go to the comment for Feb. 14, 2009 and try that if you are handy. Unplug the machine before doing any of this as with any machine that is electric or you will probably get the shock of your life.

Kenmore Elite he3T front load, bought 2004


I'm going from memory on the "H F" code: If it stops during a filling cycle, it's probably the small rubber hose running between the pressure switch and the bottom of the tub. Mine had a small hole rubbed in it as a result of it rubbing on the counterweight on the back of the tub assembly. I replaced the hose with some vacuum hose I purchase at a car parts store that had the same inner diameter. I also made sure the hose wasn't rubbing the counter weight when I reinstalled it.

Washer displays DL error


The FdL fault is a door lock error code. It sounds like you may have a bad door latch. Unplugging it and/or pushing the cancel button will not clear the fault as long as the fault condition exists. At best, you may have to replace the door latch. At worst, the CCU (main computer) could also be bad, causing the fault. The door latch can run about $50. The CCU is about $200. Double check all you wiring first before replacing any parts. I hope this will help you.
