“F21” is a Long Drain error. If the drain time exceeds 8 minutes this error code will be displayed. In addition, a “SUDS” error may also be displayed. This may be an indication of a drain pump problem and/or clog in the drain line. You will need to check the following:


1.First, attempt to unplug the washer for at LEAST 30 minutes to reset the Central Control Unit (CCU). Sometimes this is all that is required to correct momentary glitches with the unit. If the error code returns, proceed to step 2.
2.Check the drain hose to make sure it is not kinked or clogged.
3.Check the electrical connections to the pump and ensure the pump is running.
4.Remove the drain pump filter and check for foreign objects and/or debris.
To check the drain pump, click on the following link for step-by-step instructions

If the above procedures do not correct the problem, it is recommended by the manufacturer to replace the drain pump.

F-21 error, washer not draining


I have had this code three separate times. The first time service man came and cleaned out the filter. This is behind the lower front panel and can be removed by hand. The cartridge style filter is located at the pump in the lower right of the unit. Have something available to catch the draining water as you loosen the filter. The second time I received this code I found a blockage in the drain hose at its bend. The third time no hose blockage, no filter clogging, but the pump impeller was jammed by an elastic strap that had made it through the filter. I removed it through the supply side of the pump seen after filter is removed.
