Take off the bottom panel,you'll see the pump and in the middle of the pump there's a catch cup,uncrew the center of the pump and your gonna find all kinds of good stuff.if you have a shop vac for water your gonna need it,turn the center piece slowly until water starts to trickle out and use the shop vac to clean out the water or you'll have a mess,put down a couple of bath towels too to catch the water,after you cleaned out the water remove the middle part all together and stick your finger inside and feel around the impeller to make sure nothing is stuck on it,also check the rubber drain hose on the other end of the pump,stuff can get stuck in there too.put it back together,if it still doesn't drain change out the pump.also check the drain line for kinks in it.i see this all the time,there's usually a couple of dollars worth of change in there and other good stuff,let me know how you make out

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!

Hi We have a Kenmore HE2 plus front load washer. Its not too old but it came with the house. Recently we have been getting error messages 5D, F21, and F23. I pulled off the front panel and cleaned out...


Hello & Welcome to FixYa

F21 error is displayed when the washer is unable to drain, press PAUSE/CANCEL button twice to clear the display. After this please check the drain hose and drain pump filter for any blockages and make sure it is not clogged with foreign particles. You can also check the drain pump to verify that its working. Please get back to me if you have any other questions.

He2 plus front load washer keeps showing F21 error code. I cleared the drain pump filter. Still displaying F21 how do i check to see if i need a new pump


Hello,

If you found a blockage in the pump screen restricting the drainage and it now drains fine but F21 is still there,the error code can be cleared by pushing the PAUSE/CANCEL 2 times within 2 seconds.
If after clearing the error code if it returns on the next wash cycle the pump will need to be replaced.

I hope this has helped you resolve your washer troubles,

I keep gettina f21 error message


?F21? is a Long Drain error.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.
  5. Replace pump

Keeps on coding F21 - we have adjusted the hose several times but still seems to be giving us problems


Hi

Error F21 means F21 error means that the drain time has exceeded 8 minutes; this will turn off the water valves. Error code SD means LONG DRAIN. This error appears when the drain time exceeds 8 minutes and the water valves turn off. After 4 minutes the "Sd" error will be displayed, and then 4 minutes later the F21 error code will be displayed. Press PAUSE/CANCEL two times to clear the display. Please Check the drain hose and make sure it is not plugged or kinked. If the drain hose if fine then unplug the washer and check the electrical connections at the pump and make sure the pump is running. Check the drain pump filter for foreign objects. To access the drain pump and filter remove the front kick panel and trace the drain hose to the bottom of the washer, drain pump would be located there. If you are not able to access it, then replace the back panel as well. Plug in washer or reconnect power. If the issue is still not resolved then you would need to replace the drain pump.
Hope this helps... Please post back if you need more information.
