SOURCE: Washer won't drain completely. All lights flashing. F21 code is flashing.

“F21” (AKA SD) is a Long (SLOW) Drain error (LD). If the drain time exceeds 8 minutes this error code will be displayed. In addition, a “SUDS” error may also be displayed. This may be an indication of a drain pump problem and/or clog in the drain line. You will need to check the following:


1.First, attempt to unplug the washer for at LEAST 30 minutes to reset the Central Control Unit (CCU). Sometimes this is all that is required to correct momentary glitches with the unit. If the error code returns, proceed to step 2.
2.Check the drain hose to make sure it is not kinked or clogged.
3.Check the electrical connections to the pump and ensure the pump is running.
4.Remove the drain pump filter and check for foreign objects and/or debris.

The water is taking too long to drain from tub, remove the lower acces panel on the front of the washer and unscrew the round cap which contains the strainer filter. Take filter out of the housing and see what has all collected you may be very surprised what you find, let me know if this solves your problem or need more help

I HAVE A KENMORE FRONT LOADER HE 2T AND IT STARTED WASHING AND KNOW I CANT GET IT TO GO IT SAYS F21


On some Kenmore washers the F21 indicates "Slow Drain". You could have dirt in the filter attached to the drain pump. There should be a screw on cap that is removed to clean the filter. The pump is behind the lower front cover. It is also possible that the pump went bad.

Whilrpool front loader F21


Hello & Welcome to FixYa

F21 error is displayed when the washer is unable to drain, press PAUSE/CANCEL button twice to clear the display. After this please check the drain hose and drain pump filter for any blockages and make sure it is not clogged with foreign particles. You can also check the drain pump to verify that its working. Please get back to me if you have any other questions.

Check for the drain hoses(both sides of the pump) and check for a blockage,then check the pump for blockage,there should be 4 impellers on this pump and they can get broken off by coins and debris. This solution will fix your problem.

F02l Problem that everyone else is having/


If this is in reference to the "F21" error code on a Kenmore Elite front loader, the bottom panel is directly below the door. It comes off by removing the screws under the bottom front edge. With the screws removed, the panel will drop down, then come off.

NOTE: You may have to prop the two front feet of the washer up for better access (a 2 x 4 works well for this).

"F21" is a Long Drain error code, which usually means the drain pump reservoir is clogged with debris, the drain lines are obstructed, or the drain is not working. The following link explains:

If this is not what you are talking about, or if you have questions about this repair, please let me know. I hope this helps you.
