My front loading Crosley washing machine is showing error code 21. What does that code mean?


Can't remember the exact error code, but my crosley front loader would not spin. I found out this was because all the water was not being pumped out. I wash a lot of dog blankets and found out the drain basket was completely blocked. I was able to remove and clean from the back and this fixed my problem. I guess it could be the pump but check this basket first. The way I did it from the back was hard so I suspect there is a better way to access the basket.

Error code f 21 how do I fix the problem


this is the code for a drain problem. most front loaders have a clean out just before the pump. mine has a round door that you unscrew to clean out. I just did mine a few nights ago and found if full of coins that was slowing the drain.

F-21 comes up on screen


F21 is an error when the machine takes too long to drain. Usually caused by a blocked empty pump filter. A full set of error codes and troubleshooting actions can be found at:

My whirlpool frt loading washer is flashing a F 21 code and will not run. Can you help?


This problem is a good illustration of how there's just no substitute for actual hand-to-hand combat with broken appliances. Here's an excerpt from the service manual on this fault code: EXPLANATION AND RECOMMENDED PROCEDURE F21 LONG DRAIN

If the drain time exceeds eight minutes the water valves turn off.

NOTES: After 4 minutes the "Sd" error will be displayed, then 4 minutes later the "F/21" error code will be displayed. Press PAUSE/CANCEL two times to clear the display.

Possible Causes/Procedure
1. Check the drain hose and make sure it is not plugged or kinked.
2. Unplug washer or disconnect power.
3. Check the electrical connections at the pump and make sure the pump is running.
4. Check the drain pump filter for foreign objects.
5. Plug in washer or reconnect power.
6. If the above does not correct the problem, go to step 7.
7. Unplug washer or disconnect power.
8. Replace the pump.

I've worked on dozens of these washers and have only found the above service manual solution to apply once or twice. The vast majority of the time, I'd arrive and all the washer would do is drain and flash F-21 in the display. I couldn't even get the control board to go into diagnostic mode.

Using my keen Samurai Insight®, I unplugged the washer and removed the molex connector from the water level switch (also called a pressure switch). To get to it, remove the top panel by taking out the three screws in the back of the washer. The pressure switch is right there on top, as seen in the picture below:

Anyway, I plugged the washer back in and, lo!, the washer did enter diagnostic mode and the people did sing and the Lord did grin. And there was much rejoicing. Especially after I replaced the water level switch where up on applian to logical harmony was restored.

Hope this helps (remember to rate and comment this answer)..

Whirlpool duet sport wfw8300sw00 f-21 error


Unplug the machine. Unscrew the 3 screws under the front edge of the washer. The service technician manual is attached to the panel that slides down and off. Find F21 code. See suggested procedures. Note: My drain pump filter had a baby wash cloth in it along with some change that was disrupting the flow. It is exceptionally easy to remove, clean, and reinstall. Just line up installation notches when reinstalling. Whirlpool should have mentioned this filter in the User & Care Guide, but I could not find it anywhere in there.
