E21 error code

What can I do to check out this code? The water is not pumping out, only if I put it to spin only. I am just wondering where can I find out about the codes and the meanings of them.

There is a E21. Water not draining fast enough. Try holding the start/pause and cancel key together for 3 seconds. The door lock, wash, rinse and final spin leds should light. Any error codes should be displayed when holding those keys.

Error code e21 on frigidaire affinity washer cleaned pumped and ran a rinse cycle it did fine put clothes in to wash it ran for 10 min. then stopped.


Hello Deena,
Error Code e21
means the water is not pumping out fast enough.The most likely reason is because the washer drain filter is clogged.
Here is a solution:
  1. Pull the machine out from the wall.
  2. Then take the panel out in the rear. Once the panel is off you will see the drain pump.
  3. Disconnect the drain Tube between the Tub and the Pump.
  4. Look inside the pipe you will find the Drain Filter.
  5. Clean the filter out ( you will be surprised of "things" found in the filter) then put the machine back together
  6. Try a full cycle.
That should end your problem.
Best of Luck!

It pauses with error code E20 and doesn't seem to drain or spin, could it be the filter is cloged?


The E20 error code is a class code that indicates a drain problem in the washer. This is consistent with the drain and spin problem that you are observing. To determine the exact error code, follow these steps:

Wake the machine by pressing any button

Wait 5 seconds

Press and hold the START and PAUSE/CANCEL buttons simultaneously

The exact error code (E21, E23 or E24) will be displayed.

If E23 or E24 are displayed, you will normally need to replace the control board due to a failed drain pump relay.

If the E21 code is displayed, I recommend that you follow these troubleshooting tips:

Check the washer drain to see if it is clogged.

Check the washer drain hose for a clog or restriction.

Make sure that the washer drain system complies with the installation instructions for the washer.

Try to gravity drain the washer by placing the drain hose in a bucket on the floor. If the washer will gravity drain, you may be able to

unplug the washer

and remove the bottom front service panel using the procedure in the image below. Arrange towels to catch residual water that may be in the washer and check the pump filter and drain trap for a clog or debris. If you find no clog or debris, then you may need to replace the drain pump. NOTE: You should not attempt this procedure unless you are completely confident in your technical ability to safely access and check the pump. Do not disassemble the drain pump hose if the washer is full of water.

E2 error code aw-8990st toshiba wash


Toshiba top load washers have standard error codes. Depending on the display (2 or 3 digits depending on the model) it will either show E21 (or E23) or alternate E2 and -1 (or E2 and -3). Here's a list of most Toshiba washers error codes;

E1: Water doesn't drain in time or not at all
E21: Lid open
E23: Lid not locking
E31: Load imbalance
E32: Check E1 and/or E31
E5: No water coming in

You can try resetting to factory default by following the procedure: Power OFF, then pressing and holding the Super Spin Dry button, press power ON and it should beep 3 times.

Hope this helps

Hello debbiecantu1 - Typically error code E21 indicates an issue with the water not pumping out fast enough. Does the unit make a humming noise? If so, either the drainage hose/pump is clogged and needs to be cleaned. Try setting the cycle to spin only and verify if water pumps out. If it does not, then the unit could possibly be experiencing an issue with a faulty pump, timer, door lock assembly or control board. Contact a professional to move forward accurately.

Eiflw55hmb error code e21


Ok you have a front load washer made by Electrolux. Prbably says Fridgedaire.
E21-water not pumping out fast enough.
There could be a clog in the filter or a kinked hose. Check all the hoses and the filters. Some models have inline filters just before the pump. Filters are designed to protect the pump.

If you need further assistance please feel free to contact.

Kenmore washer model number 417.44082400 giving error code E21


If the control detects that the washer still has water in it even though it is apparently dry, the control will continue to run the drain pump and will not go into the spin model. If the tub is completely dry, you could have a problem with the water level pressure switch or the control board. This would normally cause an E21 error code on the washer. I provided the technical information for this washer in the image below. The washer will normally signal an error code with a series of blinking lights on the console when the washer will not go into the spin mode. I recommend that you continue to allow the drain pump to run for a while and see if an error code will appear. This will normally indicate the likely failed component that is causing this problem. The information below is intended for technicians. Follow electrical safety guidelines if you use this information. Unplug the washer to disconnect electrical power before accessing internal components. Some of the checks below call for live voltage checks. I do not recommend that you conduct this type of test on the washer. Live voltage checks should only be conducted by a service technician.

Error E21 won't start washing delay then won't spin all the water out


Hi, water not draining fast enough. Try holding the start/pause and cancel key together for 3 seconds. The door lock, wash, rinse and final spin leds should light. Any error codes should be displayed when holding those keys. If you see a different error code, post it. If not, I would suspect a clogged pump.
Drop the bottom front panel. The pump sits on the right side. Disconnect the drain hoses and clean them and the pump impeller out.

E21 error while on final spin


E21 is telling you that it has not drained the water out. You may have something stuck in your drain pump.
