Question about Whirlpool Washing Machines
F21 is a drain error code. You likely have something stuck in your pump. Remove the lower front panel. (there are 3 #20 torx screws on the bottom of it holding it on) Once you have the panel off, the white object in the front cneter is your pump. Remove the #20 torx screw out of there too to make life easier. Slide the pump forward slightly so you can raise it. Now, on the front of the pump is a handel that you will need to trun counter clockwise. So after placing something under neath to catch the water left inside the machine ( a large bowl or bucket), turn the know slowly counter clock wise. If there is too much water for your container, screw it back clockwise and go empty your container. Repeat until all of the water is out. Once that is done, unscrew it all of the way and slide if forward. You will usually find missing socks, toys, coins and all other kinds of fun objects. While you have the trap out, reach in with your finger to the hole on the right. Try and turn the wheel inside to make sure there isn't anything keeping it from turning (bobby pins, nails, screws, etc) If there is, you will need to unclamp both hoses on the back of the pump and remove any further forign objects. Now re-assemble the unit but leave the panel off. Run a quick fill and drain to make sure all of your connections are tight and you don't have any leaks. Put your panel back in and you're ready to go.
