The F21 indicates a long drain problem.There is a drain problem.If you haven't already the first thing to do is to remove and clean the pump filter. See the image below for how to do this. Remember to unplug the washer first.You will want to have a shallow pan or a couple of heavy towels to catch the small amount of water that will come up when you remove the filter.Hopefully the filter can be cleaned out and you'll be back in business. If the filter is clear and the pump is noisy or pumping very poorly the replacing the pump would most likely correct this problem.

This should help.Thanks.Helpmech.

Affinity frigidare front load washer won't start. It beeps with message flashing (DR)


Hello zabbster - Typically the DR or DO error code indicates that the door switch is not closed. Make sure that the door lock is completely closed. If the door is closed, make sure the door latch is not broken. If the latch is broken, you may possibly need to replace the door lock switch.

During the cycle, it has stopped and the screen is flashing F- 21, what does that mean? The door is locked and when I do get the door open, water spills out. What do I do?


The drain cycle only runs for 8 minutes. F-21 is a blocked drain tube. Open the panel in the front bottom and locate the drain tube (front right) Disconnect it and you will find a little collection area in the tube as it first comes out of the washers tub. Clean it out and try resetting it to drain then all should be fine. I always find coins and other stuff like tissues blocking the flow.

Colorado door locks


I had a problem where drivers window and door locks did not respond. I got them both working again by activating the 4-way flashers! This must reset something somewhere. This is the second time this has worked for me.
