Hi,"F21" is a Long Drain error code which is usually an indication that you may have an obstruction somewhere in the drainage system. Most commonly, there is something lodged in the drain pump or inlet line running from the wash tub to the pump. There is a white screw off cap on the drain pump that you can remove to inspect the pump impeller and clean. The following link explains.

http://www.fixya.com/support/r3608588-f21_error_code
Included is a follow-on link that explains how to check the drain pump to clean. You may also have to remove the inlet hose that runs from the bottom of the wash tub to the inlet side of the drain pump. Debris and small articles of clothing such as socks or under garments can become lodged in this area as well causing the drain cycle to fail.

NOTE: A "SUD" error code can often occur in conjunction with the "F21" error code. This is due to air being detected in the drainage system, which can occur if the pump is not running, or if you have an obstruction BEFORE the pump. You need to remove the inlet hose from the pump to ensure it is also not blocked. Correct your drainage system fault, and the SUD error (if displayed) should go away.

NOTE: If these preliminary measures do not correct your problem, you may have to replace the drain pump. It does not take much to damage the pump impeller or motor. Since the error code is generated if the drain cycle exceeds 8 minutes, if the pump is damaged and can't pump at the required volume, the error code will continue to appear until the pump is replaced.

Mine keeps flashing F 21 what does that mean?


Hello

F21 error is displayed when the washer is unable to drain, press PAUSE/CANCEL button twice to clear the display. After this please check the drain hose and drain pump filter for any blockages and make sure it is not clogged with foreign particles. You can also check the drain pump to verify that its working. Please get back to me if you have any other questions.

There are two red vertical lines which are close together that just showed up on our television screen. What does this mean?


It means there's been a failure of some of the electronics built into the display panel. Unfortunately, there's no way to repair this short of replacing the display. If this set is out of warranty, you'd be stuck paying for a new display. It might cost less to look for a sale price on a new set.

Interference like that is usually caused by electrical noise. Does it happen when everything else on the boat is turned off? If the answer is no, then you can isolate the source of the interference by turning things on one at time. Follow your transducer cable and make sure it has not been damaged or altered in any way.

Also make sure that your gain is set to auto

The GSD 21 has an LED indicator light on it. If it detects a malfunction the LED will flash in distinct colors or patterns. In the troubleshooting section of the owners manual there is a list that explains what each flash pattern means.
