I endevor to purchase a new unit. I've had the same electrical issue with the "F" variable coming up for EACH cycle. I've pressed the Pause/Cancel button and attempted to resume the cycle. While that did work, again, the "F" would come up and the cycle disrupted. I think I will end up paying quite a bit to have it serviced. My washer is 7 years old and I've had it serviced twice to date. I intend on purchasing new in the New Year, a Samsung or LG.
The error code F21 is similar to F02 which both pertains to a draining problem. The usual cause is a blocked drain filter or a clogged/kinked. But since those areas are found to be not the source of the problem, the problem must be somewhere else. It is either the drain pump is broken particularly the impeller if the pump just hums/whirs or the pressure switch contacts are stuck/welded together and is, therefore, not tripping. The link below provides the detailed troubleshooting instructions the problem of this kind after the drain filter has been cleaned out.
First of all, be sure you are using only HE detergant. Your drain filter is likely clogged and needs cleaned. On the front lower panel of the washer, remove the screws and panel. You will see a drain filter (about the size of a tennis ball). Before removing the drain filter you are going to need to hand bail the water out of your drum or all the water will run out when you remove the drain filter. Slid a plastic trash back up under the drain filter to help contain whatever water you could not bail out by hand. Remove the drain filter and clean it thoroughly. Replace the drain filter, replace the lower front panel and run a rinse and spin cycle. If sudsing error continues and you are using HE detergant, you may need to lower the amount of detergant you are using. However, 9 times out of 10, it is just the clogged drain filter.
u might have a drain problem u need to take the front panel off at the bottom there are 3 t20 torque bits take them off and the water pump should be in front or to the right side theres a filter for the pump u need to take that of and see if there is any objects in the filter if so clean it out.then check your drain two if this does not work u might need to replace the pump good luck
If the drain time exceeds 8 minutes, the water valves are turned off and F02 is flashed.
Press PAUSE/CANCEL twice to clear the display.
NOTE: After 4 minutes the “Sud” error will be displayed, then 4 minutes later the F02 error code will be displayed.
• Check the drain hose and make sure it is not plugged or kinked • Check the electrical connections at the pump and make sure the pump is running. • Check the drain pump filter for foreign objects • If the above does not correct the problem replace the pump
“F02” 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 generated as a secondary error. This is an indication of a drain pump problem and/or clog in the drain line. You will need to check the following:
1. Check the drain hose to make sure it is not kinked or clogged. 2. Check the electrical connections to the pump and ensure the pump is running. 3. Remove the drain pump filter and check for foreign objects and/or debris.
To check the drain pump, click on the following link for step-by-step instructions.
Your filter on your pump is probably clogged with lint and other stuff. You have to remove the bottom front panel, 3 screws. The panel will drop and come off. The filter cover is right in front. Get yourself a bunch of towels and unscrew the filter cover and twist the filter out. Clean out all the stuff and put it back in.
We've had this problem for about a yr when i finally firgured out how to correct it. the problem is that the circuit board is attached to the washer, when it starts to shake it causes the connections to loosen and theats the fault code you get. How I fixed this was to suspend the circuit from a bungie strap this will allow the washer to shake all it wants and the circuit board is stable, connections stay tight andwasher works fine, after 6 months not one error code at all
