"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.


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

Maytag washer throwing fault code 21


An "F21" or "F02" error code is indicative of a slow draining cycle, normally caused by a clogged or kinked drain hose. If an "F21" or "F02" error code appears, check the drain hose on the back of your washer to ensure that it is not clogged or bent. Once the drain hose has been unblocked, the error code should disappear and the machine drain properly. However, if you have a high efficiency washing machine and the error code continues to appear, make sure you are using the correct detergent; because high efficiency machines use much less water than traditional washing machines, they require the use of a low sudsing detergent. Traditional detergents may produce too many suds, which can block the machine's drain hose and lead to slower draining cycles.

Could you please tell me what error codes 21 and 6 relate to on a Winterhalter GS502 dishwasher. Many thanks. Barry CER


error 6 relates to a blocked drain pump. if the drain pump is working ok check if the tank level sensor is operating or if the air chamber in the wash tank is blocked.
error 21 relates to the drain pump being activated. normally related to error 6.
also check water inlet solenoid valve is working correctly. ie not blocked or passing.
all parts of the machine can be activated manually by entering service mode.
when machine is off press service button or switch on main pcb.
p00 appears. press and hold main wash button. --- appears. using the long and short wash buttons you can scroll through parts of the machine. displayed as a01 a02 a03 etc.drain pump is a12 solenoid valve is a13. these are activated by pressing the button. when activating the drain pump the display will count down. this number is the water level in the wash tank. if it's counting down the level sensor is ok.
hope this helps
