SOURCE: sir, i am working washing

Hi from retired Englishman in SW France,

This might not help you- if not, I'm sorry.
Does each machine have its own water outlet filter? If so I would suggest as a first step that you clean the drain motor lint tray/filter.
Here are my complete, general pre-typed guidance notes for checking the filter ;-0)
-------------------------------------
If you are unsure where the filter is, it is often behind the front lower (kick) panel (or in some machines at the rear in an awkward position!) and most are held in by a round cover/knob.

REMOVE POWER AND ENSURE YOU HAVE A WATER RECEPTACLE/RAGS TO SOAK UP THE WATER WHICH IS BOUND TO POUR OUT!

It's surprising what people have found in theirs! It is always worthwhile checking it on a regular basis.

Hope the filter is the problem and good luck!

Error 21 was on washer, we cleaned out drain then started washer it appeared to be working, but then error message 21 came on again. It is very late so tomorrow morning we will open drain again.

Hello, it can only be dirty filtersomething in the pump drain line blocked up or failed pump. I would check the filter again and if its clean put the drain hose in a bucket see if it drains but chances are you will need a new drain pump. hope this helps please rate my answer thanks

Front loading whirlpool stopped part way through wash with a F 21 error message. Please advise. Thanks; Kelly

Hi Kelly,


Thanks for using FixYa. Error F21 means long drain, this error occurs when the drain time exceeds 8 minutes. To resolve this check the drain hose and make sure it is not kinked with any foreign particles; also clean the drain pump filter for any clogs. Also check if the pump is running fine. If still the issue is not resolved after all this then you might have to replace the pump. Please do rate the solution if the issue is resolved or post a comment for further assistance.


Thanks

Could you please tell me what error codes 21 and 6 relate to on a Winterhalter GS502 dishwasher. Many thanks. Barry CER

error 6 relates to a blocked drain pump. if the drain pump is working ok check if the tank level sensor is operating or if the air chamber in the wash tank is blocked.
error 21 relates to the drain pump being activated. normally related to error 6.
also check water inlet solenoid valve is working correctly. ie not blocked or passing.
all parts of the machine can be activated manually by entering service mode.
when machine is off press service button or switch on main pcb.
p00 appears. press and hold main wash button. --- appears. using the long and short wash buttons you can scroll through parts of the machine. displayed as a01 a02 a03 etc.drain pump is a12 solenoid valve is a13. these are activated by pressing the button. when activating the drain pump the display will count down. this number is the water level in the wash tank. if it's counting down the level sensor is ok.
hope this helps

He2 error message f 21

"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.
To check the drain pump, click on the following link for step-by-step instructions

If the above procedures do not correct the problem, it is recommended by the manufacturer to replace the drain pump.

Ld error message

It most likely means long drain, the drain line could be clogged or kinked. You could also have something jamming the drain pump or a bad drain pump.
