that is not a problem i have assisted many people with this problem. Follow the steps below and that should solve the problem unless for some reason something is broken, which i doubt.
Unplug the machine and remove the three screws under the front bottom panel. Slowly unscrew the white (approx 2.5") plastic filter (on the right side). Have a thick garbage bag handy to catch the water and get ready for a bit of a stench. Approx 2 gallons of liquid comes out. Pull the plastic filter out, shake it in the garbage (make sure there is no jewelry in it), wash it, put it back. start the washer. If you need further assistance please let me know. If this assisted you please feel free to rate the solution Thanks, Midwest-tek

Maytag 3000 series washer f21 code and sometimes suds code i checked drain hose and drain catch all is clear but i do see drain pump come on what to do?


Is there water in the machine? Is it actually draining? If you select spin and the water drains but the error still occurs it may be the pressure switch. The pressure switch will be stuck on full so the unit says it has taken too long to drain F21. If it doesn't actually drain and you have checked the pipes( both from pump to outlet drain AND pump to tub of machine) then it is likely the drain pump itself and will need to be replaced.

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.

Maytag washer throwing fault code 21


An "F21" or "F02" error code is indicative of a slow draining cycle, normally caused by a clogged or kinked drain hose. If an "F21" or "F02" error code appears, check the drain hose on the back of your washer to ensure that it is not clogged or bent. Once the drain hose has been unblocked, the error code should disappear and the machine drain properly. However, if you have a high efficiency washing machine and the error code continues to appear, make sure you are using the correct detergent; because high efficiency machines use much less water than traditional washing machines, they require the use of a low sudsing detergent. Traditional detergents may produce too many suds, which can block the machine's drain hose and lead to slower draining cycles.

Washer stopped working with error code f21


Generally F21 implies it takes to long to drain water. If you washer is not draining, it will not likely need a pressure switch but just a cleaning of the drain pump filter.

See images below (click image for zoom). If it is draining all the water nad F21 appears, then it likely has a pressure switch failure. The water level pressure switch part #8540224 is located under the main top. It is mounted along the right upper side panel as your standing in front of the washer.

In order to access and replace the water level pressure switch, remove the screws along the back of the main top and slide it back a little and lift it off. You will see the pressure switch (key#23) as shown in the image I added below.

NOTE: Disconnect the power cord from the power source before removing the top.

Once you locate the pressure switch, remove the pressure switch hose and wires. I added an image below with the instructions on how to access and remove the pressure switch. Note: There is additional information about the F21 fault code and some other information not pertaining to your fault code in the image below.

Hope this helps (remember to rating this free answer and leave one testimonial).

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.

The F21 error code indicates a long drain. Here are some tips that should help you resolve this problem:
  • Check your washer drain to make sure that it is draining properly.
  • Check the drain hose for kinks and clogs. Make sure that it is installed properly per the instructions in your owner's manual. An improperly installed drain hose can prevent the washer from draining properly.
  • Check for excessive suds in the washer tub. Excessive suds can prevent the washer from draining properly and will result in the F21 code. Make sure that you are using the proper amount of HE (High Efficiency) detergent to prevent excessive suds.
Remove any clothes and then use a wet/dry shop vac to drain any water out of the washer.

Arrange shallow pans and/or towel in front of the large item filter shown in the second image below to catch residual water when you remove this filter.Remove the large item filter as shown below. It is likely that you will find a clog in this area that is preventing your washer from draining.

If you do not find any clog or restriction in the large item filter and none of the other issues discussed above apply to your situation, then you could have a failed drain pump. If the pump is damaged and will not pump out water then it will need to be replaced.

Door is locked code F21 wont run or cycle or empty water


First check your washer plug to see if the connections are tightly screwed. Next check your filter if you haven't for long.

Remove the 3 screws at the bottom of the front panel under the washer door. Your filter door will be light brown. If you find a hose there it is to drain out excess water (water that could not be drained by your pump) After you hv drained unscrew the cap and remove all the junk inside. Have a large plastic bag to catch junk and water. Refit carefully after cleaning out. If not solved, something shd be blocking your pump, check this out
