First unplug the machine. Next locate the 8" round plastic circle near the bottom right front corner of your washer. Rotate this until the pinhole is at the very bottom then the plastic cover should pop off revealing a black pump. The front of the pump will unscrew and water will gush out. Carefully reach in and fish out any stones or glass that may be causing problems. Then screw the pump back together plug the machine in and try another load. If all goes well replace the plastic cover and smile.

Error message SUD and F21 even after unclogging the filter


Push the pause/cancel button twice to clear your message. Then run through a rinse/spin cycle. Next try a normal load without any detergent. SUDS is usually from too much detergent. If this fails, checked the hose for kinks. Check connections and if all that fails, you will probably have to replace the pump. Good Luck!

Washer Flashing Error Code ND; door won't open after turning washer off


Hello,

The ND error code means NO DRAIN. ,

The usually reason the door remains locked once the cycle is over is because the filter screen on the drain pump is blocked so not all the water could drain out...the door lock is tied into the pump and until the pump tells the control board that the wate r is out the door will not unlock. This tip i wrote will show ya how to take apart the washer to clean the filter on the pump.

Hi, "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. This 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. The LINK explains how.

NOTE: The Maytag Epic is manufactured by Whirlpool, so these procedures will apply to your washer.

Error code f21 The timer will run, but the washer doesn't. I can't open the door, even by pushing pause/cancel.


"F21" is a Long Drain error code. This is an indication that you have an obstruction somewhere in the drainage system. In most cases, this means you probably have a clog in the drain pump. The following link explains:

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

You may have something getting caught in the pump impeller and slowing it down. 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: The washer will not complete the cycle with an error code present. 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.

NOTE: The "SUDS" error can commonly occur with the F21 error code as this is can be generated when air is sensed in the drainage system.
NOTE: If replacing the drain pump is required, the following link explains how:

http://www.fixya.com/support/r401845-replacing_drain_pump_whirlpool_duet

If the door won't open it could be jammed due to the program being interrupted. You may have to use the manual release to gain access to the wash tub. The following link explains:

http://www.fixya.com/support/r622155-kenmore_elite_whirlpool_duet_door_jammed

I would recommend that you use the method outlined in my previous link for removing any water in the wash tub BEFORE you open the door. Using a shop vac on the drain line to drain the wash tub can save you time and reduce any mess you may have to clean up afterwards. If you have any questions let me know. I hope this helps you.

F21 error, drained the water (no debris) and put the drain plug back in place at which time I ran the wash cycle again and it errored again. Any suggestions?


"F21" is a Long Drain error code, which commonly means you have something clogging the drain pump. The following link explains:

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

If cleaning the pump does not correct the problem, a new drain pump may be required. If the pump impeller or motor is damaged and the pump does not pump at the proper volume, the error code will still occur. This is because the error is caused if the drain cycle takes longer than 8 minutes. If the pump is not moving the correct volume of water, the error code will still occur.

If a replacement pump is needed you can purchase them at searspartsdirect.com, appliancepartspros.com, pcappliancerepair.com or repairclinic.com. All these sites offer great service with competitive pricing. So shop all of them for the best deal. Use your model number (located around the door opening) for your search criteria.

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

Error Code OE and Door will not unlock


error code OE simply means “the pump is blocked”. Presumably the water isn’t being emptied properly.try running the spin cycle alone till the water empties completely.If the problem still continues it means that the pump is clogged where you cant reach, since you've tested with the drain hose.

Bosch frontload washer will not drain


Hello Mamma5, It sounds like the drain pump is either seized or jammed. The drain pump has an anti jam device in it. Since you have figured out how to get into the drain pump, try turning the inpeller in the back. It will be a little hard to turn as the magnets in the motor will fight you on this. Look close in case there is anykind of thread wrapped around the inpeller. If so, then you can free the pump. If you cannot free it to run, advise the repairman what you found so he can bring a drain pump with him.
Hope this helps.

Error F 04


im not up to speed with the codes. BUT if you are able to open the door this suggests the bulk of the water has pumped away, so I suspect motor or belt problems. Can you hear the motor spinning when it should be? ie on spin cycle. If not suspect carbon brushes in motor, or even a broken/burned out wire to motor. Replace belt if broken
