the basics i always adv my customers is

Run once no detergent or clothes
Leave lid open
shut off water supply
disconnect all hoses

This is the best, most books give directions

Our whirlpool washer is not finishing the cycle and gives an error code of F21 at the end of the cycle can you tell me what this is? tks Phil


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.

Need opinion on Washer repair


This assumes that you have a basic Kenmore / Whirlpool top load, direct drive, neutral drain (it doesn't spin until the pump removes most of the water) machine.

First, see the Sears parts site for your washer:

http://www.searspartsdirect.com/partsdirect/getModel!retrieve.pd?modelNumber=110.22432100&pathTaken=partSearch

and you'll see a list of major sub-components with diagrams and parts.

See the following Whirlpool Service manuals for top load, direct drive washers.

https://secured.whirlpool.com/Service/SrvTechAdm.nsf/2cd44500d572193285256a45004fd9d6/f7e2147fa98b28cf85257122007475cb/$FILE/L-55.pdf

Assuming that it WILL spin, but not drain, the problem does point to either a pump or hose problem.

If you can hear the motor turning during the spin cycle, the pump should be working.

See the following for how to remove the cabinet and gain access to / check the pump.

If it will neither drain NOR spin, the problem points to the Lid Switch?

Whirlpool washer error code problem


LD is long drain associated with two problems the drain hose install and the pump. Debris in the pump and a drain hose inserted too far will cause most of these issues.
