Hello. The f21 error code indicates a problem within the electric motor that drives your machine. This is not a problem you can repair yourself. Call customer service where you purchased the machine or look in the yellow pages for a local large appliance repair shop. If your machine is relatively new, it is probably under warranty. J.

what this indicate simple mean that there has been an over flow of water into the panel(that is power control ) or there has been a loos of wire from the connection of the panel connected to the drum which will not allow the drum to drain properly .
what you are to do to fix up this problem is to unscrew (open) with a technician tools like screw driver the washer from the stroll then clean up the the panel very well with out disconnecting any wire from it position or
from the loos of wire trace the wire down to the control button or drum connected to the panel and fix up the loose wire back to is position (on the control button)

Thanks for using FixYa. Error F21 in your Bosch Classix means that the motor has gone bad and should be replaced, after replacing the motor you’ll have to reset this error by turning the program switch to 6 o clock position and then hold the RPM button to turn the switch to spin, after this is done release the RPM Button. Please do accept the solution if the issue is resolved or post a comment for further assistance.
