Fault code f21

The cycle will begin but won't finish and leaves excess water in the machine with the door locked. when it does this, all the lights flash and the code f-21 flashes on the screen. what does this code mean? i know with other machines it means the touch pad is not responding, is this the same for whirlpool appliances?

    Thanks for the tips!

    I have exactly the same problem and tried to blow into the hose. But it still clogged. Do I need to take the hose out of the machine or the end that connected to the drainer? I tried to take it out of the machine, but it won't come off. Should I open the back parts? Thank you in advance.

To fix the problem. Open up the front bottom cover. There is a pump in the middle at the front. Take off the cover by screwing it counter clockwise. Watch this point it spills lots of water. Then there is a filter in the middle. Pull out the middle and there might be something stuck in it. I found socks in mine. This caused lots of problems. I hope that this helps.

There is a clog in your hose. It happened to me, same washer. I took the hose off and blew into it, the clog came out.

    It means there is a clog in your hose, take it off your machine and blow into or hose it out with water.

Flashing display 7 mins into cycle. Water drains away and eventually display goes blank. Help?


Do you get an F21 code or some other code.

An F21 code means the water is not draining away properly. There may be plugged pipe.

Here are some tips to help you:

1. Check to make sure the washer's drain pipe is draining properly.
2. Check the drain hose to see if there are any kicks or clogs in it.
3. Check the washer for excessive subs. Sometimes excessive subs can also keep the water from draining.

Of course, the above tips are useful only if you have a F21 code. If you have other error codes, you'll have to look at the manual that came with the machine.

My magtag 5000 series washer is flashing error code F21, It was in the middle of a wash cycle and now the door is locked and it won't open. How do I at least get the door open. I have unplugged the


Unplug the washer. Then plug it back in and press the button that turns it off. This should unlock the door. Same thing happened on mine and there was a kink in the drain hose. Once I unkinked the hose, unplugged it, plugged it back in, turned it off, then I was able to run a drain & spin cycle to get the water out of the load that was in the washer. I then ran a full wash cycle (they'd gotten stuck in the first drain & spin cycle of a wash) and everything seems to be fine now.

My maytag washer is showing F21. Won't empty of


Hello, welcome to fixya.

Based on your post I understand you have a "F21" error problem with a Maytag washer, the error on these units built by Whirlpool (such as yours) means an excessive drain time or excessive suds was detected as you may or may not already know.

If you follow the link to my solution to this error designed specifically for "do-it-yourselfers" you should be fixed up in no time. (It's much quicker for me than pasting or retyping the complete solution several hundred times, that's how common this is)

I think Ihave a wfw 9200, the door lock light is flashing and cannot be cancelled. There is a f21 fault code flashing. HOW can I open the door ?


Hello, Welcome to FixYa.

Based on your post I understand you have a F21 problem with a Whirlpool Duet washer, that indicates the F21 error means an excessive drain time.

As for the door locked issue, it is a by-product of the F21 error. Make sure you get the water out before attempting to open the door manually or it could be messy.

To Manually unlock the door lock system:

1. Unplug the power cord from the outlet.

2. Remove the lower toe panel.

3. Reach up along the inside of the front panel and locate the bottom of the door latch assembly.

4. Located on the bottom of the door latch assembly is a tear-drop shaped tab.

5. Gently pull the tab down about ΒΌ" or until a click is heard.
6. The door may now be opened.

If you follow the link to my solution to this error you should be fixed up in no time.

Duet GHW9150P Front Load Washer: Whirlpool Duet Washer - Error F21 (What is this) ...


First check your washer plug to see if the connections are tightly screwed. Next check your filter if you haven't for long.

Remove the 3 screws at the bottom of the front panel under the washer door. Your filter door will be light brown. If you find a hose there it is to drain out excess water (water that could not be drained by your pump) After you hv drained unscrew the cap and remove all the junk inside. Have a large plastic bag to catch junk and water. Refit carefully after cleaning out. If not solved, something shd be blocking your pump, check this out. Door locked? Press "end of cycle" for 3 seconds, wait for 2 minutes & try the door. F-21 filter blocked.
