Hello F21 indicates long drain. You should remove the panel below the door and behind the door you will find the pump. Built into the pump there is what looks like the gas cap to a car. unscrew this gas cap and clear the debris from the drain filter (gas cap) this should solve your problem. Mike

I have a Asko T793C dryer. My clothes are unable to complete its cycle as halfway through the display panel will show a message "Clean Lint Filter". After I cleaned it, the cycle will continue...

I would take the vent off entirely and run it like that, if the alarms go away your problem is more than likely in the wall somewhere and a service will need to be called to clear the obstruction, if it does return the blower wheel or housing may be damaged.

Sub zero 632S error code 21

EC 21 has nothing to do with the refigerator. From the 600-2 series service manual page 3-21 EC 21 is Defrost Overheat fault.
The defrost system is only in the freezer and on a completely seperate refrigeration system. Clear the EC by holding the bell key pad down until you here a tone this is going to be a minimum of 15 but can be as long as 30 depending on the generation of your appliance. The part that you will most likely need to replace is the defrost terminator which stops the defrost cycle. You may have also had a problem in the refrigeration section which did fix by yourself, good job.
