Question about Whirlpool Cabrio WTW6600SBT Top Load Washer
You may have a condition known as "siphoning". This is caused by the drain hose not being high enough off the floor, or not having a proper air gap at the standpipe in order to drain properly. This creates a suction and the washer will constantly drain (siphon) as it tries to fill. The following link explains:
In the majority of the cases, this problem is attributed to improper installation, rather than an actual problem with the washer. If you have any questions, please post back and let me know. I hope this helps you.

You may have some articles that made their way into the pump housing. Alot of times I see dimes get stuck in the ports of the pump, remove and check out thoroly and also check hoses coming to pump for little son of a gun articles that like to hide.

You have a clog in your pump; have to dismantle to de-clog. Look carefully.
Empty out all pockets in clothing before loading the machine!

While you have it all apart, look into the pump. Does it appear to be clogged with anything? Does it appear to be intact? No broken blades or worn down parts? If it does not appear broken, put it back together. Leave the panel off and cycle the machine through all it's functions and see if the motor is running at all, you may have to fill it (use small load function) to get it to work unless you know how to bypass the water level switch (I will not tell you how as it would take too long). I'm not 100% sure on this but believe the pump works when motor goes one direction and the gear box works when motor runs the other (varies from machine to machine and I am not an appliance tech) and if your motor is not able to run both ways it will not pump out or spin either. You didn't mention spin so suspect it didn't get that far.

Pressure Switch failure - remove the hose at the top of the machine, and blow in it to clear moisture/buildup.
If not - replace the Pressure switch.
LD = LONG DRAIN
"F21" (AKA SD) is a Long (SLOW) Drain error (LD). If the drain time exceeds 8 minutes this error code will be displayed. In addition, a "SUDS" error may also be displayed. This may be an indication of a drain pump problem and/or clog in the drain line. You will need to check the following:
1.First, attempt to unplug the washer for at LEAST 30 minutes to reset the Central Control Unit (CCU). Sometimes this is all that is required to correct momentary glitches with the unit. If the error code returns, proceed to step 2.
2.Check the drain hose to make sure it is not kinked or clogged.
3.Check the electrical connections to the pump and ensure the pump is running.
4.Remove the drain pump filter and check for foreign objects and/or debris.
To check the drain pump, click on the following link for step-by-step instructions
If the above procedures do not correct the problem, it is recommended by the manufacturer to replace the drain pump.
