Whirlpool Duet washer shuts off when tub fills with water


First, does your unit attempt to clear the water from the drum at all? That is, do you HEAR the drain motor engage and attempt to pull water out of the drum? I had to do a little more than clear the drain filter to fix mine. The drain filter was clear, but my Duet still wouldn't clear the water from the drum. When I pulled off the drain filter cap, I got a trickle (not a GUSH as you normally would) of water, indicating that the problem was further up in the line. However, first confirm there's nothing obstructing the exterior line clear thru to the drain filter. And I have to ask, does ANYTHING drain from the tub-- that is, is NOTHING coming out (in which case it is probably your drain motor), or is it just coming out slowly (indicating an obstruction prior to the motor)? Slowly means you should backtrack from the drain filter to the tub basin. On my unit, there is a black rubber hose that comes off the drain filter and leads to the tub collection basin. This hose attaches with a hose clamp that is easily removed with a set of pliers (in all honesty, in fact, it is considerably more difficult to put it back ON). When you remove it, you'll notice a float at the beginning of the black rubber hose. Clean out around it. Then, (and probably a more likely cause of an obstruction) reach your hand up into the tub basin and feel around. Mine yielded about 5 cups (no kidding) worth of yuck that was causing my drain issue that, when removed, completely solved the problem.

F21 code


F21 error is displayed when the washer is unable to drain, press PAUSE/CANCEL button twice to clear the display. After this please check the drain hose and drain pump filter for any blockages and make sure it is not clogged with foreign particles. You can also check the drain pump to verify that its working.

Washer not entering rinse cycle tube in front near filter won't drain water no kinks in hose


You may have to remove and clean out your drain filter located inside the cabinet between the bottome of the drum and the pump motor. Make sure you hand bail the water out of your drum prior to removing the drain filter. Your model may have a shut-off valve between the drain filter and the tub, if so turn it to the OFF position to stop the water flow. If you do have this shut-off valve you will not have to hand bail the water out of your tub. After you remove, clean and reinstall the drain filter, be sure to turn the valve back to the ON position.

I have a WM2277HS TROMM Washing Machine and at the end of the cycle the water does not drain nor does it spin. Therefore, the rinse & spin cycle only rinses but does not drain the water nor spins. ...


Sounds like a bad lid switch. Check to see if you hear a "click" from the switch when you open and close the lid. If you do not, then you should replace the lid switch.

Error code F-21


F21 Long drain Possible cause: Clogged filter, clogged/failed pump.

1) Removing the front panel just under the washer door can be tricky, it is secured underneath by 3 1/4" hex screws, you may need a special hex driver or ratchet to remove (can get at home Depot for $4)
2) Make sure you check the tubing from the drum and out to the drain they can be clogged to
3) Twist open drain filter slowly, water will come out so put a heavy duty garbage bag underneath to catch water
4) When replacing filter make sure to line up notch at the top of filter with the groove inside and then slowly screw clockwise back in until tight
5)Make sure to replace front cover tightly, there is a drip fuse that won't let the washer run unless front cover is back on.

Socks are the most common thing you can found.
