Hi


Thanks for using FixYa. Error F21 means long drain, this error occurs when the drain time exceeds 8 minutes. To resolve this check the drain hose and make sure it is not kinked with any foreign particles; also clean the drain pump filter for any clogs. Also check if the pump is running fine. If still the issue is not resolved after all this then you might have to replace the pump. Please do rate the solution if the issue is resolved or post a comment for further assistance.


Thanks

Rylee

I keep getting error code F21 on my kenmore elite which is a drain error the drain is not clogged and the drain hose is not clogged any ideas on what I could do?


The error code F21 is similar to F02 which both pertains to a draining problem. The usual cause is a blocked drain filter or a clogged/kinked. But since those areas are found to be not the source of the problem, the problem must be somewhere else. It is either the drain pump is broken particularly the impeller if the pump just hums/whirs or the pressure switch contacts are stuck/welded together and is, therefore, not tripping. The link below provides the detailed troubleshooting instructions the problem of this kind after the drain filter has been cleaned out.

The Sd code appears when sud is detected but it may also indicate draining problem such as blocked drain filter or broken drain pump as signified by the long drain error code F21. The drain pump impeller may be broken or restricted resulting in poor draining or no draining at all or the drain pump motor is faulty. Since the drain hose and filter have been cleaned but the error code still persists, the drain pump likely needs to be replaced.

Don't have manuel, the code is F21, What does that mean


You do not mention your machine make. The F21 error I have listed for a Kitchen Aid says that it is a touch pad/LED error. The assembly is not able to transmit/receive data from the central control unit.

Check the touchpad/LED assembly by selecting different cycles and changing modifiers and options available to confirm that the touchpad/LED is responding
Unplug the washer or disconnect the power.
Check the wiring harness connections to the touchpad/LED assembly and central control unit.

Replace any faulty parts found.

sounds like you have covered all the bases --- the next thing that I would try is to simply unplug the unit from the wall and let is sit for a minute or two and then plug back in. if this does not solve your F21 code, then I would say that the problem is at the sensor or main circuit board.
let me know if you need further help with this issue,

The F21 signal keeps flashing.


f21 is long drain, failed to drain in 8 mins. f27 is overfill, overfill contacts on pressure sw closed. If unit did actually successfully drain normally then pressure sw is likely the problem.
1. did pump come on? if no replace pump
2. is unit draining at normal rate? no then clean pump.
if yes on both replace pressure sw.
to second poster if getting suds error when using HE then you likely are using to much detergent. If avail run a clean washer cycle.
or normal cycle with bleach or fabric softner, no clothes
