    My Whirlpool Duet Sport leaks out the front corner when washing. No codes appear, still runs fine, but doesn't spin as much water out as before the leak.

    when and after I put clothes in the washing machine, when I go to reg. wash then push start and hold it doesnt start but only flashes a "F" what does this mean and how do I fix this??

    Thanks for your answer Lumpy816. It got us 80% of the way. However, after filling and draining the washer it still came up with the F21 error code. It turns out there was something blocking the gray accordion hose leading from the bottom of the tub to the trap and the pump. Note that there is a ball in the top of the gray hose that prevents backflow. Making sure the hose is free of debris and kinks can solve more of the F21 error code problems.

    WELL I WISH I NEW ABOUT THAT TRAP I FOUND ALL KINDS OF STUFF I CANT BELEIVE IT THANKS A MILLION

  • Anonymous Apr 15, 2009

    Unbelieveable, there was a pair of panties stuck in there and not a lot of water, maybe 10oz. Why oh why would the owner's manual not mention this trap may need to get cleaned out and to put small items in a mesh lingerie bag.
    Thank you lumpy!

  • pnbb May 08, 2009

    The washer is leaking! I returned the 1st washer and washed 4 loads and the new one has the same problem with nothing in the pockets!! I have checked and double checked every item before putting it in the washer! I think it may have a serious defect!!! Any ideas before I throw it in the yard! I am mad!!!

    After I took the above steps, it is leaking behind the "drum". Not sure what else to call it, it's the cement thing in the front, steady leak out of that. Any thoughts?

  • keriu May 11, 2010

    Lumpy816 you ROCK!!!!! Thank you sooooooo much!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! You saved us a minimum $65 service call!

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 center is your pump.
Remove the #20 torx screw out of there 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 turn counter clockwise. So after placing something underneath to catch
the water left inside the machine ( a large bowl or bucket), turn the knob slowly counter clockwise. 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.
Please make sure you post a rating if this solution was helpful.

The washer isn't spinning all the water out. A code of F21 appears.


This usually indicates a clogged drain filter or pump. Try this link it should help F21 Fault Code Repair

My kenmore washer is stopping constantly and has error codes like 5d, rL, F21 and some other codes. We checked everything the manual says to and it all seems fine. What is the problem?


That 5d is a clue. Too much detergent, the wrong detergent, or detergent in wrong dispenser can cause the 5d which is suds overdose. The F-21 is from banging on the touchpad in frustration!
Keypad error! Take the base panel off and find the tech sheet behind it. The tech sheet will give error codes and what to try. I have an HE washer service manual and some repair photos HERE

My washer stopped and was flashing F21 (drainage issue) so I called a plumber. He checked the hoses and removed the panel and cleaned the drain trap. It didn't fix the problem it's still won't drain. It...


The SUD message relates to overdose of detergent detected during the Wash Cycle.
This may signify a bad pump, an extra heavy load, excessive detergent or excessive suds.
If too much detergent was used, run the washer through a Rinse/Spin cycle, then a Normal cycle, without adding any detergent. This should clear the unit of the excess detergent.
Check the drain hose and make sure it is not plugged or kinked. this seems to be the reason as to why your unit is not fixed even after trying to solve F21......

F28 is a communication error which usually means there is a connection that has come loose. Removing the top and unpplugging and replugging the connectors in will fix 75% of these codes. If the bottom toe panel is not on it will also give you an F28.
Good luck

F21 error message


This HC error code will appear at the end of the wash cycle to indicate that the hot and cold water inlet hoses are switched.
If the hoses are not switched it could indicate a problem with the Electronic Control Board.
You can try to rest the washer by unplugging or flipping the breaker to the washer for 2-5 min.
Restore power to the washer and try running a short cycle.
This will help clear any irregularities that the control board may have encountered.
