Hi


Thanks for using FixYa. Error F21 indicates long drain, this error occurs when the drain time exceeds 8 minutes. To resolve this check the drain hose and make sure it is not kinked with any foreign particles; also clean the drain pump filter for any clogs. Also check if the pump is running fine. If still the issue is not resolved after all this then you might have to replace the pump. Please do rate the solution if the issue is resolved or post a comment for further assistance.


Thanks

What does F20 on the washer mean?


Whirlpool uses a flow meter that detects the flow of water entering the washer. If this flow meter does not detect the correct amount of water entering the washer it will sound the F20 error code. Often this repair can be made with out calling an appliance repairman and without ordering parts. Start by removing the washer fill hoses; both the cold and the hot water hoses. Check for proper water pressure from the house. To do so, turn the water on and put the hose inside the washer or a bucket.


If water pressure is good, check the water valve inlet screens. Most residential washing machines have inlet screens. The screens prevent minerals from clogging the solenoid. With the hoses removed, you can visually inspect the water inlet screens. If the water valve screens are clear the inlet valve with the screens itself will need to be replaced. To replace the water valve, remove the top of the washing machine. Three screws hold the top down. The screws that hold the top down are on the back of the top panel. Once removed the top will slide back and off. Now remove the wire harness that connects to the valve. One screw holds the valve to the washers cabinet. Removing the screw and sliding the valve over will release the valve from the back panel enabling you to complete your repair.

Whirlpool duet washer LF error


LF error means "Long Fill". Whirlpool uses a flow meter that detects the flow of water entering the washer.

One last thing to check is the fill hoses. These front load washers call for a lot of water quickly. So if you have stainless steel braided flood-safe hoses, they will trip for no reason at all. Replace these flood safe hoses with more traditional hoses. If the hoses are good and you haven't found anything slowing down the flow of the water, your electronic inlet water valve is just faulty on the back of your washer and will need to be replaced because it's just not allowing water flow into the washer correctly.

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.

Cold water tricles in . no normal flow does the washer valve need to be replaced


There are debri screens in many styles of washer fill hoses that can block up. And the end that connects to the back of your machine also has a reachable screen filter up inside the water valve inlet that can also block up.

Disconnect the water fill hose at the machine and check screens ... clean or replace if needed.

The screen are usually attached to the hose washer and will pop out manually with a small screwdriver or knife. Then turn the water valve on with the free end of the hose aimed into your washer tub to make sure you have free water flow from the faucet to the water valve. If all screens are clean and clear but still no water pressure going into the washer after reconnecting your hoses then you can suspect the water valve inlet assembly.

Pav3300 water pressure in machine very low. Is there a filter pressure at end of hose is excellent thanks fred


Hi Fred. Turn off the water and clean the water valve inlet screens inside the water valve.
-Remove the hose connection to the washer.
-Use a knife blade at the outer edge of the screen and pull it out.
-Wash the screens under slow running water rubbing it with your fingers.
-Reinstall screens
CHECK hose water flow into a bucket by turning on each hose. Slow flow= plumbing problem
Good flow = Connect hoses to washer

Before you turn on the water check the wall connection end of the hoses. Sometimes there are hose screens there also. If there are screens in the wall connection end of the hose remove the screens and wash them.

Thanks for choosing FixYa.

Low cold water flow


Hi...
Did you check at the point where hose is connected to the faucet? Have you actually taken the hose where you connected it to the new valve and first ran it unconnected into a sink or a bucket to make sure you have a good, strong flow of cold water? A new valve isn't going to solve the problem if the supplied water pressure is low. Around here I have seen water softeners fail and allow a sludge of crystals and "goo" to clog the screens in the feed hoses on the supply side.

Fist and foremost, make sure that you have a good supply of cold water coming out of that hose. Don't make the mistake a lot of my customers make- They think if they turn on the faucet to the sink next to the washer and there's strong flow, this means everything is ok. The faucet has no screens in it. The hose to the washer does. There are screens of course at the water valve on the washer, but there are also screens in the hoses at the faucet where the washer hoses attach. Check there.

Hope this helps....

Will not pump water into machine to start cycle


no, it is not in the draining cycle. it is in the water inlet solenoid. check if there is power to the water inlet solenoid and check also if there is water going into the unit.

if there is power to the solenoid, then check the water inlet filter, it could be clogged also.

as you remove the hose to the water inlet valve, check the crisscross plastic at the center of the inlet valve, that is the inlet valve water filter. clean it if it is dirty or clogged.

if there is no power, check the wires that goes into it. make sure that it is connected properly to the valve

F21 stands for no water flowing to the unit. it has this water flow sensor. it senses if there is water flowing tio the unit. if there is no water after 5 minutes, the alarm will flash.

tnx 4 using fixya,
