Whirlpool Duet Sport Front loading washer and dryer with error code

My Whirlpool duet Sport front loading washer stops and flashes the F21 error code with EVERY load of wash. You have to restart the washer or start a rinse or drain cycle to finish the load. Every load of wash takes fOREVER to do. The code says it stands for a drainage problem but we have done everything including replacing 100 yards of outside drainage. HELP.

    THANK YOU SO MUCH!! I did what you said and was so thankful. When i took the kick panel off the bottom the pump had dislodged from its holder and was just thumping around in the bottom of the washer. We secured it back in its bracket and opened the drain pump as you suggested and it had a key and some change inside!! I just did my first load of wash in what seems like forever that washed correctly. No restarts!!!!! THANK YOU again!!!!!!!!

An easy Fix. Take off the kick panel, 3 screws 1/4 inch. Make sure you have a shop vac ready or a lot of towels as there will be some water. Always disconnect power to washer and dryer, and turn off water to washer. Your filter most likely is clogged with change, screws, lint, and other household stuff that we leave in our pockets! Unscrew the cap on the filter, easy to find, since you have the kick panel off! Take everything out of the filter. Take your shop vac and **** out remaining stuff in hose. Also, **** up any water that has leaked in and around the washer. Screw the cap back on hand tight, put the kick panel back on, turn your water back on, plug it in and there you go! Maybe takes an hour and saves you a repair bill. If you are not comfortable with this procedure then call a maintenance person that is qualified.

Take off the bottom kick panel locate the drain pump now there will still be water in the washer so take caution when following this procedure i use a shop vac and suck all the water out of the drain hose to prevent a mess then the frount of the drain pump will screw off check it for blockage or damaged impeller blades

Whirlpool duet steam washer error f21


The F21 code is a ' drain issue ' --- if you remove the bottom panel from the machine you will see the water pump right there,, just in front of the pump you will see a clean out area,, unscrew counter clockwise and remove the catch screen,,, it most likely has a few things in it ,, clean out - re-install and start the cycle. and the F21 code should be gone AND washer is back up and running.

I have a Whirlpool front loading washing machine and when I try to do a load of laundry, it will wash, but then flashes an F21 error message....and stops......I have tried canceling the load and restarting...


The F-21 code is a blocked drain tube. Take off the front lower panel and locate the drain. Should be front right, Disconnect it and clean out the little trap that collects stuff. Put back together and should be fine. I always find stuff like coins and tissues wadded in there. It made for collecting foreign matter to keep the drain clear.

Hi, regarding the F21 Error on the Front End Whirlpool Duet, I was able to resolve the problem with the instructions from here, just want to stress cleaning out the filter by removing the front panel. Very easy and the error code is now gone. (screws are underneath front panel at bottom, remove stacker drawer for easy access, remove screws, pull panel off, remove the filter cap, turn to the left and pull out-that's where you will locate the clog.

Whirlpool duet washer flashing sud then f21 ????????


The "SUD" error is in direct relationship the other error code. "F21" is a Long Drain error. The following link explains:

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

If something is preventing water from pumping through the drain pump, you will often get a "SUD" error as air is developed in the pump. Make sure you double check all the drain lines as well.

If you have questions, or require additional assistance, please let me know before you rate the solution. I hope this helps you.
