I had the code E21 error (not draining) on my 2012 Electrolux EWFLS70JTS0, which I'm guessing is similar to the Frigidaire Front Load Washer. After reading about the potential causes being related to drain or pump obstructions, I decided to try using compressed air into the drain hose at the rear of the washer. No disassembly required. It only took a minute to do from my compressor. I suppose it would be just as effective with a garden hose, but a little more messy. Anyway, 100% problem solved! No more error code, and as soon as I put it in "quick wash" mode (which starts with a drain cycle), it drained. No repair bill. I just hope that whatever was restricting the drain flow does not happen again.

    I forgot to add, it only took a few seconds of applying the air into the drainhose to see the bubbles appear in the washer's tub. At that point I knew most any obstruction was gone.

E21 Water not pumping out fast enough. .
Check for Restriction in drain pump or hose...
No restriction. Go to step (2).

2. Start the washer and check for 120 VAC at the
drain pump. if no voltage Replace the control board.
120 VAC. Remove the pump and check for
blockage. If blocked, remove the restriction,
if not, replace the pump.

Error code e21: Bushes replaced by engineer but unable to reset machine. E21 still shows. Bosch totally unhelpful.


the electronics lock out during power surges like you would get from brush failure giving e 21 error. you have to access service test prog to reset this, and it is not in public domain.
i do know how to reset it though but difficult to explain on this forum you may find a you tube video if you search online.

E21 error is showing on my electrolux EWF14811 washing machine. What does this mean and how do I clear it?


E21 means a problem with the water draining.
Could be defective: drain pump, pressure switch, wiring, current leak between heating element and ground and finally main board.
Also could be drain filter or drain tube (kinked or clogged) and leaks from water circuit on pressure switch.

Front load washer e21


Good Morning Friend,

I see that you are receiving an E21 on your Frigidaire washer, model# ATF6000ES. The E21 error code states that water is not pumping out fast enough. Here are a couple of suggestions that you can try.

    1)Check the drain hose for any kinks or clogs. Also, make sure that the drain hose is only 6-8 inches down in the drain pipe. If the drain hose gets backed up with water this error can occur.

    2)Make sure that the actual drain pipe, where the drain hose goes into, is only a maximum height of 8 feet. If it is longer than 8 feet, you will need to cut some of the pipe off.

    3)Make sure that your homes drain pipes are not clogged. If they are, you will need to unclog them. Call a plumber if necessary.

    After checking the above suggestions, reset your washer by either unplugging it or shutting the power off at your homes circuit breaker, for 3-5 minutes. When you restore power, start any cycle on your washer. If you are still receiving an E21 error code, I suggest contacting your local authorized technician for further assistance. They will be able to diagnose your washer and determine why you are receiving an E21 on your appliance. Hope this is helpful.

    -Best regards-

E2 error code aw-8990st toshiba wash


Toshiba top load washers have standard error codes. Depending on the display (2 or 3 digits depending on the model) it will either show E21 (or E23) or alternate E2 and -1 (or E2 and -3). Here's a list of most Toshiba washers error codes;

E1: Water doesn't drain in time or not at all
E21: Lid open
E23: Lid not locking
E31: Load imbalance
E32: Check E1 and/or E31
E5: No water coming in

You can try resetting to factory default by following the procedure: Power OFF, then pressing and holding the Super Spin Dry button, press power ON and it should beep 3 times.

Hope this helps

My frigidaire washer has e21 error code and wont start


Hello - The error code "E21" typically means the water is not draining properly or not pumping out fast enough. Does the washer making a humming noise? If so, either the drain hose may be kinked or the drain in the house is clogged. Once you have confirmed and cleaned the hose and if issue continues contact a professional to move forward accurately. The unit may possibly have a faulty pump or control board.

E21 is flashing on the screen what does this mean?


E21 indicates that water is not draining from the machine fast enough. This can be caused by a kink in the drain hose, a problem with the pump or a problem with the pressure sensor.

On my washer, there's a copy of the service manual inside the machine - remove two screws in the back and take off the top. The manual includes the error codes and the steps to take.

E21 error code


There is a E21. Water not draining fast enough. Try holding the start/pause and cancel key together for 3 seconds. The door lock, wash, rinse and final spin leds should light. Any error codes should be displayed when holding those keys.
