Question about Maytag EPIC MFW9700S Front Load Washer
"F21" is a Long Drain error code. This indicates that you have an obstruction in the drainage system. More than likely you probably have a clog in the drain pump. The following link explains:
Included is a follow-on link that explains how to check the drain pump to clean. You may also have to remove the inlet hose that runs from the bottom of the wash tub to the inlet side of the drain pump. Debris can commonly clog in this area as well causing the drain cycle to fail.
NOTE: If these preliminary measures do not correct your problem, you may have to replace the drain pump. It does not take much to damage the pump impeller or motor. 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 you need to open the door but it remains locked, you can first attempt to unplug the washer for at least 30 minutes in an attempt to reset the Central Control Unit (CCU). If the door remains locked, you can use the manual release to unlock and open the door.

I hope this helps you. NOTE: The Maytag Epic is manufactured by Whirlpool, so these procedures will apply to your washer.

This error occurs if the touch-pad/LED assembly is not able to
transmit/receive data to/from the central control unit (CCU).
Possible Causes / Procedure 1. Check the touch-pad/LED assembly by selecting different cycles and changing the modifiers and options available to confirm the touch-pad/LED is responding. 2. Unplug washer or disconnect power. 3. Check wire harness connections to the touch-pad/LED assembly and Central Control Unit (CCU).

Check the drain line for kinks or obstructions. Check the pump. Remove the hoses from the pump and use a flashlight to look into the suction port. Look for anything clogging the pump (like the occasional stray sock) and check the pump impeller. Make sure there are no broken/missing blades and that the impeller will spin freely. If any blades are broken/missing or if you cannot get the impeller to spin freely, the pump is defective. Hopefully it's just a clogged pump, drain line, or a jammed impeller. Hope this helped and best wishes.

It seems that something is clogged in the drain pump
assembly and you have to clean it to solve this issue. After cleaning if the
issue returns then test the door lock assembly, if bad it should be replaced. Hope
this helps...please post back for further assistance.
