F21 relates to a motor or control board fault.

However, it is also caused by spikes in the mains and can be spurious.



To reset it.

Turn the appliance knob to the off or reset position, 12 o'clock.

Turn the knob to the 6 o'clock position.

Press and hold the spin button.

Whilst holding it, turn the knob to the 7 o'clock position.

Continue holding the spin button for about 5 seconds.

Release the button.

Turn the knob to off.

When your turn it back on it should have cleared the error code.

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.

Hello,

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)

please do this with carefully with out any form of disconnection of wires from other component.

thank you and thanks for using fixya.

Hi


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.


Thanks

    It is motor if you have not replaced it, if you have already replaced it then the other possibility is the control panel that has gone bad.

  • Marguerite Boland Aug 28, 2010

    is it possible its only brushes in motor gone and need replacing

  • Rylee Smith
    Rylee Smith Aug 29, 2010

    sorry dont have its manual...you know these things are not given in the manual. As I said F21 error means the motor is bad and should be replaced.

  • Rylee Smith
    Rylee Smith Aug 29, 2010

Will not spin or drains shows F21


The F21 error on a Whirlpool Duet washer means the unit was draining slowly. This can be caused by a blocked outlet hose (kinked hose, for example), excessive suds from using non-HE detergent or too much detergent, blockages in the drain pump filter (coin catcher), or a problem with the pump.

You should be able to clear the error by pressing Pause/Cancel twice. Check your outlet hose. Then unplug the washer. Have a bucket handy to catch the water when you access the pump. Remove the toe panel from the bottom of the washer. There are three screws to remove; then you need to lift the panel slightly and pull it forward.Check the filter for foreign objects.

Test the washer by selecting a cycle and running it with no clothing or detergent. If the unit still fails, then the pump, pump motor or the pressure switch is bad. However, you should also check the wiring to the unit.

I hope this helps. Please add a comment with the model of your washer for specific directions and parts information.
