It pauses with error code E20 and doesn't seem to drain or spin, could it be the filter is cloged?


The E20 error code is a class code that indicates a drain problem in the washer. This is consistent with the drain and spin problem that you are observing. To determine the exact error code, follow these steps:

Wake the machine by pressing any button

Wait 5 seconds

Press and hold the START and PAUSE/CANCEL buttons simultaneously

The exact error code (E21, E23 or E24) will be displayed.

If E23 or E24 are displayed, you will normally need to replace the control board due to a failed drain pump relay.

If the E21 code is displayed, I recommend that you follow these troubleshooting tips:

Check the washer drain to see if it is clogged.

Check the washer drain hose for a clog or restriction.

Make sure that the washer drain system complies with the installation instructions for the washer.

Try to gravity drain the washer by placing the drain hose in a bucket on the floor. If the washer will gravity drain, you may be able to

unplug the washer

and remove the bottom front service panel using the procedure in the image below. Arrange towels to catch residual water that may be in the washer and check the pump filter and drain trap for a clog or debris. If you find no clog or debris, then you may need to replace the drain pump. NOTE: You should not attempt this procedure unless you are completely confident in your technical ability to safely access and check the pump. Do not disassemble the drain pump hose if the washer is full of water.

Front load washer e21


Good Morning Friend,

I see that you are receiving an E21 on your Frigidaire washer, model# ATF6000ES. The E21 error code states that water is not pumping out fast enough. Here are a couple of suggestions that you can try.

    1)Check the drain hose for any kinks or clogs. Also, make sure that the drain hose is only 6-8 inches down in the drain pipe. If the drain hose gets backed up with water this error can occur.

    2)Make sure that the actual drain pipe, where the drain hose goes into, is only a maximum height of 8 feet. If it is longer than 8 feet, you will need to cut some of the pipe off.

    3)Make sure that your homes drain pipes are not clogged. If they are, you will need to unclog them. Call a plumber if necessary.

    After checking the above suggestions, reset your washer by either unplugging it or shutting the power off at your homes circuit breaker, for 3-5 minutes. When you restore power, start any cycle on your washer. If you are still receiving an E21 error code, I suggest contacting your local authorized technician for further assistance. They will be able to diagnose your washer and determine why you are receiving an E21 on your appliance. Hope this is helpful.

    -Best regards-

My frigidaire washer has e21 error code and wont start


Hello - The error code "E21" typically means the water is not draining properly or not pumping out fast enough. Does the washer making a humming noise? If so, either the drain hose may be kinked or the drain in the house is clogged. Once you have confirmed and cleaned the hose and if issue continues contact a professional to move forward accurately. The unit may possibly have a faulty pump or control board.

WHAT IS THE FIX FOR ERROR CODE 21? THANKS


Hi.

Code E21 means that there is a drain problem. The repair is carried checking the drain hose at the back and accessing the drain filter (in front at the bottom with most machines from those manufacturers. IF there is no problem with drain lines then the pressure switch , the pump or the electronic control may be responsible. For some general troubleshooting see : My washing machine does not drain.

Regards.

My code is E21 how do i fix this without paying for a service call. My warrenty ran out 3 weeks ago imagine that


E21 indicates a drain pump error or slow draining. If it is a clogged filter, you fix this yourself. (Standing water is usually still in the washer with this error.) Unfortunately, if it is something else, a service call may be needed.

Unplug the washer before starting the following procedure.
The first step is to check if your washer has a lower access panel. If it does, then remove the panel. Find the drain motor and the two hoses (drain and washer sump) that connect to it. Have a bucket ready to catch the water from the hoses. Since the hoses are connected by hose clamps you will need a set of pliers to loosen. Remove the hoses and let the water in them drain out. Check for any clogs and check the coin catcher filter (it's inside the main hose) for foreign objects. Remove the blockages. Then check for around and inside the pump (and the impellers) for any object and remove anything that doesn't belong.

If your washer doesn't have an access panel, you can get to the drain motor from the back, bottom or front of the washer. Pull off the panel (usually screws hold it in place) if you are accessing the unit from the front or back. If you go from the bottom, remove the storage drawer and pedestal if you have installed those. Then remove the bolts that hold the drain motor to the washer frame. Remove the wiring harness and the drain and sump hoses. The pump can then be removed and cleaned. Follow the directions above to check for clogs or foreign objects.

Then reassemble the washer (pump, drain motor, hoses, wiring). Replace the panel. Plug the unit back in and see if the unit will drain without the error. (Just try the drain/spin cycle and see if the unit spins rapidly. There is not reason to do a full wash.)

If you add a comment with your Frigidaire washer model number, I'll be glad to give more specific information for additional repair options.

Have a erro code E21 What is it


The E21 error code means the water in the washer is not pumping out fast enough. The solution is to check the washer installation. Make sure the drain hose is not kinked. Make sure the drain pump has 120 volts in the drain cycle. If it reads zero the control board will need to be replaced. If not, then it's the pump.

E21 error while on final spin


E21 is telling you that it has not drained the water out. You may have something stuck in your drain pump.
