Unfortunately, any electronically controlled digital appliance can have issues that regular mechanical washers won't. I always advice my customers to get the extended warranty on these electronically controlled digital appliances, as they have more that can go wrong with them. Because this problem is not easy to fix and usually result to having it replace..
You can try calling the support for this machine to check it for you but I think it will just result being replace with this error.

Hope that helps....

I have an front loading he 2t washing machine and I am getting the f21 error code. Also, the door is locked, The add garment, wash, and spin lights are on as well.


Hi, you have to unplug the washer from power source. Then remove front lower panel (3 sheet metal screw with 1/4" drive head located on the lower lop of the panel), open pump strainer (looks like a large stove knob, Turn it counter clockwise, lookout because lots of water will gush out. Back flush the pump by filling the outet of the drain hose ( this may dislodge debris that may jam your pump), re-assemble, plug to power, and turn-on. In my case, there was a piece of a metal lodge in the pump impeller.

Washer is stuck on spin and the door wont open. It is locked.


This advice is for Kenmore Elite and Whirlpool Duet model front loading washers. If you experience a problem where the door becomes jammed and will not unlock or open, here's an easy way to gain access inside your washer WITHOUT calling the repairman.

1. Remove the lower panel under the door by loosening the three screws under the bottom edge on the front of the washer. HINT: If you prop up the front feet of the washer with some small blocks of wood, this will make access to the screws much easier.
2. With the screws removed, the lower panel should drop down then come off. If the panel sticks, a light tap on either side will knock it loose.
3. Reach your hand up inside the washer behind the front casing on the right-hand side. This is where the door latch assembly is located.
4. At the bottom of the door latch assembly is a small pull tab. This is the manual release for the door. Pull the tab straight down and the door will come open.

Sometimes these doors will not unlock for whatever reason. If there are no error codes being generated, this could have just been a momentary glitch. If you see "Fdl" "DLE" or "Fdu" error codes, these are usually indications of a failed door latch assembly and will require replacement.

Weird smell


Probably mildew. They often suggest running a bleach only (no clothes) cycle every month or so with front-loading washers.
