"F21" is a Long Drain error code which is usually an indication that you may have an obstruction somewhere in the drainage system. Most commonly, there is something lodged in the drain pump or inlet line running from the wash tub to the pump. There is a white screw off cap on the drain pump that you can remove to inspect the pump impeller and clean. The following link explains:

http://www.fixya.com/support/r3608588-f21_error_code

Included is a follow-on link that explains how to check the drain pump to clean. You may also have to remove the inlet hose that runs from the bottom of the wash tub to the inlet side of the drain pump. Debris and small articles of clothing such as socks or under garments can become lodged in this area as well causing the drain cycle to fail.

NOTE: A "SUD" error code can often occur in conjunction with the "F21" error code. This is due to air being detected in the drainage system, which can occur if the pump is not running, or if you have an obstruction BEFORE the pump. You need to remove the inlet hose from the pump to ensure it is also not blocked. Correct your drainage system fault, and the SUD error (if displayed) should go away.

NOTE: If these preliminary measures do not correct your problem, you may have to replace the drain pump. It does not take much to damage the pump impeller or motor. Since the error code is generated if the drain cycle exceeds 8 minutes, if the pump is damaged and can't pump at the required volume, the error code will continue to appear until the pump is replaced. If the pump requires replacement, the following link explains how:

http://www.fixya.com/support/r3574350-replacing_the_drain_pump_in_a_front_load

These are both very simple repairs that you can perform yourself without the assistance of a repairman.

NOTE: For an explanation of all the error codes, each one of these washers comes with a technical data sheet inside.

To access, you will need to remove the lower toe panel under the door. The access screws are located under the bottom front edge of the panel. You may have to prop the two front fett of the washer up for better access ( a 2x4 works well for this). With the screws removed, the panel should drop down, then come off. If the tech sheet isn't directly behind the panel, it will be affixed to one of the interior cabinet walls.

The tech sheet lists all error code definitions, troubleshooting data, diagnostics procedures and wiring diagrams. I mention the tech sheet because you may need it to troubleshoot this error code.

Read through the information provided and let me know if you have any further questions. I hope you find this information helpful.

    Yes, it is a dispenser system error. The technician manual says to check the mechanical linkage from dispenser motor to top of dispenser.

    However, in my case this page from whirlpool was helpful:
    https://www.whirlpool.com/product-he...r-code/PH5260/

    It says a common solution for this error (f8 e2) is:
    The detergent drawer or detergent cartridge might be clogged with detergent. Clean out the detergent cartridge per Use and Care Instructions.
    If cleaning the detergent cartridge did not correct the problem, please contact us.
    For any additional questions, please call our Customer eXperience Center toll-free at 1-866-698-2538, Monday through Friday 8AM-8PM Eastern Standard Time.
    You will be asked to provide the model and serial number which is found on the front door rim after opening the door.



    So I washed out my dispenser and now it's working again.

    Whirlpool Duet washer GIVES ME f11 ERROR CODE


    The F11 error code means that there is a communication error between the CCU (central control unit) and the MCU (Motor Control Unit) and it is not sending the message correctly. Check the wire harness connectors to the MCU and the CCU. Check the drive system for any worn or failed components. Check the MCU and the CCU and the motor. You may need a qualified repair technician for this one.

    "F21" is a Long Drain error code. This indicates that you have an obstruction in the drainage system. More than likely you probably have a clog in the drain pump. The following link explains:

    Unplug the machine. Unscrew the 3 screws under the front edge of the washer. The service technician manual is attached to the panel that slides down and off. Find F21 code. See suggested procedures. Note: My drain pump filter had a baby wash cloth in it along with some change that was disrupting the flow. It is exceptionally easy to remove, clean, and reinstall. Just line up installation notches when reinstalling. Whirlpool should have mentioned this filter in the User & Care Guide, but I could not find it anywhere in there.
