You have to clean out the pump.unplug the washer,open the door and with a shop vac vac out the water from the tub.next remove the bottom panel and you'll see the pump,in the middle of the pump you can remove the middle piece,have the shop vac ready,turn the middle piece counter clockwise slowly until water starts coming out,vac it up until it drains out,then remove the middle piece of the pump,most likely you'll find coins and a bunch of other gross stuff,also it could be stinky,clean out the coin catch and then stick your finger in the pump and feel around,make sure nothing is stuck where the impellar is,also check the rubber hose behind the pump,sometimes things get stuck in there,i stick the vac in the pump and vac out anything that's in there. put the piece back in the pump,plug in the washer,next dump some water into the washer with a container like a half gallon or so,put the washer on drain and see if it drains,if it doesn't drain turn the middle piece of the pump and drain out the water and check to see if anything is stuck in the impeelar of the pump,if it's clear the pump is bad but most of the time the pumps hold out.let me know how you make out and one more thing the number one killer of front loaders is to much detergent,if you use the cap off the bottle you should be using 1/4 a cup that's it,it's h.e. detergent and it's double the strenth of regular detergent.it eats at the rear bearing and spider gear,when it breaks the machine makes a loud banging sound in the spin cycle and it's time for a new washer,the part alone is 500 dollars so cut back on the detergent

Bocsh 1400 express f21 keeps flashing


This Bosch looks like a Kenmore HE2, and may be made by the same manufacturer.

In the Kenmore HE2 manual it states:
"F" Variables [F4 to F16] (Electrical problem)
Select PAUSE/CANCEL twice to cancel the cycle.
Select DRAIN/SPIN if there is excessive water in the washer.
Re-select cycle and press START. If the problem remains, call for service.

If it's not working still, try asking advice at RepairClinic.com . They have helped me in the past, and they have parts too.

Flashing display 7 mins into cycle. Water drains away and eventually display goes blank. Help?


Do you get an F21 code or some other code.

An F21 code means the water is not draining away properly. There may be plugged pipe.

Here are some tips to help you:

1. Check to make sure the washer's drain pipe is draining properly.
2. Check the drain hose to see if there are any kicks or clogs in it.
3. Check the washer for excessive subs. Sometimes excessive subs can also keep the water from draining.

Of course, the above tips are useful only if you have a F21 code. If you have other error codes, you'll have to look at the manual that came with the machine.

Have a front loading Whirlpool washing machine.. It keeps flashing F21 what does this mean??


Hi

Thanks for using FixYa. Error F21 indicates long drain, this error occurs when the drain time exceeds 8 minutes. To resolve this check the drain hose and make sure it is not kinked with any foreign particles; also clean the drain pump filter for any clogs. Also check if the pump is running fine. If still the issue is not resolved after all this then you might have to replace the pump. Please do rate the solution if the issue is resolved or post a comment for further assistance.

Thanks

My washer keeps flashing f21 and no matter what I do it doesn't seem to work.


Hi
f21 is long drain, failed to drain in 8 mins.If unit did actually successfully drain normally then pressure sw is likely the problem. 
1. did pump come on? if no replace pump
2. is unit draining at normal rate? no then clean pump.
if yes on both replace pressure sw.
to second poster if getting suds error when using HE then you likely are using to much detergent. If avail run a clean washer cycle.
or normal cycle with bleach or fabric softner, no clothes..

please rate my suggestion..
