“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.

I have a Whirlpool front loading washing machine and when I try to do a load of laundry, it will wash, but then flashes an F21 error message....and stops......I have tried canceling the load and restarting...


The F-21 code is a blocked drain tube. Take off the front lower panel and locate the drain. Should be front right, Disconnect it and clean out the little trap that collects stuff. Put back together and should be fine. I always find stuff like coins and tissues wadded in there. It made for collecting foreign matter to keep the drain clear.

Whirlpool front load washer wont go into rinse cycle screen flashes F 21


The F21 error on this line of washers is the machines way of saying the water took to long to drain from the tub. This could be a problem with one of the washer parts including the drain pump itself, how the drain hose enters the stand pipe, or maybe even something is stuck somewhere in the drain system and is preventing the water from flowing properly. Not quite an emergency, but it is an indication of a problem and a problem that can lead to something bigger if not looked into.The F21 error on this line of washers is the machines way of saying the water took to long to drain from the tub.

Error code F-21


Hi there, I think the first thing you need to do is check the pump and make sur ethe impeller inside the pump is actuall turning and in good shape. Something may have passed through and in the course, sheared off the impeller fins. Chekc closely... Thanks

Washer make a clicking noise


Zoobs, you could have something stuck under the agitator. The agitator will pull straight off. Grip it on each side and pull up hard, but don't hit yourself in the face. If that don't work, try slipping a belt under it and pull. Check for something caught under it. Another possibility could be the nylon suspension rod socket supports in the back. They will make a noise during agitation if they are dry. Put a little 3 in 1 oil to quite them down. Take the front panel off and check the pulley and belt, see if anything is out of whack. I also often find the motor support hitting the bottom panel during agitation making noise. Take the front panel off and observe during agitation. See if the support is striking the bottom. If so, just bend the bottom panel down. Catriver..post back.
