It is a motor or pcb fault this is a reset code as follows,
turn dial to off 12 0clock position then turn to 6 oclock,
press and hold the spin buttonat same time turn it to 7 oclock,continue to hold the spin buttonfor 5 seconds,release button,turn off.
next time you turn on the error code should have gone ,
if it does not work go through the proceedure again i had to try it 3 times but it does work

    this worked a treat after changing worn out brushes.
    5 seconds between each step.
    Start with knob at 12 o'clock position.
    Turn knob to 6 o'clock position - wait 5 seconds
    press and continue to hold Spin button - wait 5 seconds
    move knob 1 notch clockwise - wait 5 seconds
    let go of Spin button - wait 5 seconds

Thanks - worked on my Classixx 6 washer after 10 to 15 attempts. The last time I tried it I counted 5 seconds between each step.
Start with knob at 12 o'clock position.
Turn knob to 6 o'clock position - wait 5 seconds
press and continue to hold Spin button - wait 5 seconds
move knob 1 notch clockwise - wait 5 seconds
let go of Spin button - wait 5 seconds
move knob forward to 12 o'clock position.
Keep trying this as often as it takes for it to work.

    Yes this got rid of my F21 Code after I fitted new Motor Brushes. Took me a few goes until I saw the Start Button light flash as I turned it back to 12 from 7 o clock then I turned it back on and the Fault code had gone. Now the Washing is on and the hole job cost £10.00.

F21 error code means Time out / No motor action. This problem can be due to worn motor brushes. F21 also means Long Drain error. This may be an indication of a drain pump problem or obstruction somewhere in the drainage system.

Thanks a million for the reset info Pat and Mr Floyd. Just replaced the brushes (bit dear at £30) and thought I had fixed the wrong problem. Took just 3 attempts for it to work but sure enough cleared it. Repairs of old machines more important given recent Which? story on sealed drum units.

Hi,

F21 is a motor or control board fault.
This also can be caused by voltage spikes or surges...
To reset it.
Turn the appliance knob to the off or reset position, 12 o'clock.


Turn the knob to the 6 o'clock position.
Press and hold the spin button.


While holding it, turn the knob to the 7 o'clock position.
Continue holding the spin button for about 5 seconds.


Release the button.
Turn the knob to off.


When your turn it back on it should have cleared the error code

If the problem continues then check the motor...

F21 flashing on my bosch classixx 6 1200 express


F21 is a motor fault and in some cases can also involve a module fault. It could be as simple as the brushes need replacing or the drum has been severely out of balance.

F21 has appeared on my Bosch classixx 6 1200 model


F21 normally indicates a fault with the motor or the main control board. It could be the motor brushes need changing.
If you've changed the brushes you now need to erase the stored errors and try the machine again.
.
Turn the knob to off.
Close the door.
Turn the knob to 6 o'clock position.
Wait 2 seconds.
The start/pause should begin flashing.
Press and hold the spin button. (the spin button is the one that changes the spin speed, it may be marked "RPM")
Turn the knob to 7 o'clock position.
Wait 2 seconds.
Release the button.
Turn the knob to off.
.
This should erase the error code and get you running again.
.
If the error code returns, you have a problem with the motor, wiring or main control.
If the machine won't go into diagnostics to erase the error code, it would suggest a faulty control board.
.
Try it several times to see if you get it reset.
.
Note, If the start button doesn't flash, just carry on trying to erase the codes.

F21 relates to a motor or control board fault.

However, it is also caused by spikes in the mains and can be spurious.


To reset it.

Turn the appliance knob to the off or reset position, 12 o'clock.

Turn the knob to the 6 o'clock position.

Press and hold the spin button.

While holding it, turn the knob to the 7 o'clock position.

Continue holding the spin button for about 5 seconds.

Release the button.

Turn the knob to off.

When your turn it back on it should have cleared the error code
