Question about Whirlpool Duet GHW9150P Front Load Washer
I've cleaned out the drain trap & cleared the drain hoses. I have unplugged the washer, opened the door, done everything the manual says. The water pump works, I poured water into the washer are I cleared the trap, and the pump drained the tub. The problem is the washer will not leave the spin/drain cycle. Pump runs for about 4 minutes then displays the F21 error code.
PAUSE/CANCEL twice to clear the display then
It's because of a Long Drain condition. If the drain time exceeds 8 minutes, the water valves are turned off the code is flashed.
But Note: After 4 minutes the "Sud" error is usually displayed, then 4 minutes later the error code is displayed.

The F21 error code indicates a long drain time on this type of washer. The door will not unlock if the washer control detects that water is still in the tub. To manually unlock the washer door, take these steps:
After opening the door and removing the clothes, I recommend emptying any remaining water in the tub with a wet/dry vacuum (or bail it out). Since you already have the bottom front service panel off and the washer unplugged, you can arrange shallow pans and towels to catch any remaining water and pull the filter out and clean it You may find a clog in this area that is preventing your washer from draining properly. Clear any clog or debris from this area and reassemble the washer. Check your drain hose for a kink or clog. Check the washer house drain for a clog or restriction. Test the washer to see if it will drain properly.
Here is a video to show you how it is done.
