Press Pause/Cancel button twice to clear the display then check the drain hose for kinks and clogs. Error code F21 indicates a long drain error. The drain hose is most likely clogged or the drain pump is not working properly. Check the pump filter and the impeller and make sure there's no obstruction that might be causing the water not to be pumped out efficiently.

    The drain pump can be accessed by removing the lower front access panel. Remove the screws securing it to the cabinet then slide it down and off. Place a towel under the pump then unscrew the pump filter from the pump housing and pull it out. Clean the filter including the pump housing and check the pump impeller, water will not be pumped if it is broken.

    With the lower front access panel still removed, set the washer to drain mode if everything is clear then verify the operation of the washer. Check the pump wiring connections if the pump is not running. Replace the pump if the connections are good and snug fit.

You may have to unplug it for about 15 minutes and try again. I had a similar problem and this helped.

Error message SUD and F21 even after unclogging the filter


Push the pause/cancel button twice to clear your message. Then run through a rinse/spin cycle. Next try a normal load without any detergent. SUDS is usually from too much detergent. If this fails, checked the hose for kinks. Check connections and if all that fails, you will probably have to replace the pump. Good Luck!

He2 plus front load washer keeps showing f21 error code i cleared the drain pump filter and it still displays the error code f21 how do i check to see if the pump is not working


Hi


CCU/Touchpad/LED assembly error (f21)
This error occurs if the touchpad/DED assembly is not able to transmit/receive data to/from the central control unit (CCU)
1. Check the touchpad/LED assembly by selecting different cycles and changing the modifiers and options available to confirm the touchpad/LED is responding 2. Unplug washer or disconnect power for five minutes. This will reset the CCU, and may reactivate the communication if the damage isn't severing. 3. Check Wire Harness connectors to the touchpad/LED assembly and Central Control Unit (CCU).

Please get back to us if you have further query else please accept the suggestion.
Thank you for contacting fixya.com

F21 on the Kenmore HE2 Plus Frontload Washer


there is a removable access panel on the front of the machine under the door. Remove one screw from each side. There you will find the pump that has a strainer basket on it. Remove that and clean the blockage out of there. You will also find attached to the panel, another manual that explains the codes better

Was ''F35'' now its ''F21''


F21 is drain problem.

Try tripping circuit breaker to reset the appliance.

The next step will be undoing the drain pump hose to check for a blockage.

the pump is accessed removing a panel, usually at the front side of the machine.
Steps are explained on user manual.

Keep a container ready to collect water when you undo pump hose.
