Please tell me how to disassemble the pump to see if debris is fowling the little fan. Have been through the drain system up to and past the pump. Even took the pump out but didn't see any obvious obstructions. The noise began abruptly and is definitelyemanating from the pump and appears to be related to that little fan. Don't know if the fan is supposed to spin freely or catch slightly as if attached to a spring (which is how mine moves.) Also, I wonder is this is a warning sign that the pump may be short lived. Other that the noise from the pump, the machine works fine. But obviously the noise is significant enough to make me break in and check it out.
If you've already removed the pump once, then you are already ahead of the game. All you should have to do is remove the clean out trap and check the reservior. You can separate the motor from the pump by removing the screws that hold it in place from the pump housing. These pumps can make some noise. They will cavitate sometimes when the water has been pushed through the system and they begin to pump air. However, if the pump is exhibiting louder than usual noises, it may be time to replace it. Replacement pumps can be ordered on oine at searspartsdirect.com or replairclinic.com. Compare the two sites for the best price. I hope this answers your questions. let me know if you need further assistance.

"F21" is a Long Drain error. 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.
If the above procedures do not correct the problem, it is recommended by the manufacturer to replace the drain pump. (Courtesy JSRock)

First check your washer plug to see if the connections are tightly
screwed. Next check your filter if you haven't for long.
the 3 screws at the bottom of the front panel under the
washer door. Your filter door will be light brown. If you find a hose
there it is to drain out excess water (water that could not be drained
by your pump) After you hv drained unscrew the cap and
remove all the junk inside. Have a large plastic bag to catch junk and
water. Refit carefully after cleaning out. If not solved, something
shd be blocking your pump, check this out
Hello and thanks for your question. The F21 is telling us there is a draining problem. Something is preventing water from draining fast enough from the washer. Check your drain hose for problems and if ok take the lower panel off the washer after you unplug the washer. There is a round cap that unscrews to clean the large item filter. Use towels or a shallow pan to catch the water. Remove any debris. If this does not get you to your problem there may be a problem with your pump.
Hi, Remove your strainer cover, located in the kick panel at the front, and use a mirror and flashlight to see up into the pump cavity. It sounds like there is enough debris in the strainer and pump to explain your problem. Remove any foreign material you find.
