I have F21 on my machine, how can I fix it?


The F21 error is generally related to the drain of the washing machine (depending on the brand of your machine). Basically it means that the drain is clogged and the machine is taking too long to empty the water out.

Cleaning the drain is not for the queasy. You can find information on how to clean out the drain by visiting: http://www.kiwiservices.com/angela-says/fix-an-f21-code/

Flashing display 7 mins into cycle. Water drains away and eventually display goes blank. Help?


Do you get an F21 code or some other code.

An F21 code means the water is not draining away properly. There may be plugged pipe.

Here are some tips to help you:

1. Check to make sure the washer's drain pipe is draining properly.
2. Check the drain hose to see if there are any kicks or clogs in it.
3. Check the washer for excessive subs. Sometimes excessive subs can also keep the water from draining.

Of course, the above tips are useful only if you have a F21 code. If you have other error codes, you'll have to look at the manual that came with the machine.

Whirlpool washer wfw8300sw02 code F21 what does that mean


the F21 code is a ' drain issue ' --- if you remove the bottom panel from the machine you will see the water pump right there,, just in front of the pump you will see a clean out area,, unscrew counter clockwise and remove the catch screen,,, it most likely has a few things in it ,, clean out - re-install and start the cycle. and the F21 code should be gone AND washer is back up and running.

What does F21 mean on the digital screen?


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.
