The pump filter is located in the panel right underneath the front door, there three screws which you have to unscrew. Once you have opened this panel it's a white knob on the right hand side, when you open it water will come out of it as well as junk that's been stuck in there, at least that's what happened to mine...I had the same problem

F21 error on Kenmore washer

The F21 drain indicates a long drain. There are several reasons for the error. The most common causes are debris in the drain pump filter or excessive suds. If you aren't using HE detergent or if you use too much detergent, the excess suds may be the cause. First, remove the clothes from the washer. Try running the washer without adding more detergent.

To check the filter, you will need to unplug the washer. Next take off the bottom panel. Locate the drain pump and the adjacent filter. Have a bucket handy to catch the water from the pump. Open the filter and remove any foreign objects. Look into the pump and check for any objects that got past the filter. Remove anything that doesn't belong. See the cabinet and pump diagrams here: to help you take apart the unit and locate the pump filter. Close up the filter and try running the washer (again no clothes and no detergent). If the error does not recur, you've solved the problem.

If the F21 error repeats, then the pump or the water pressure switch could be faulty. If water has been pumped out of the washer, then check/replace the switch. You should also check the wiring between the switch and the main control board.

I hope this helps.

Can I get to the drain pump or does the washer need to be torn apart? I cleaned out the drain plug- full of sand, filter clean, but I can't see the actual drain pump to see if something might be


You can get to the drain filter without need for disassembling.The filter access is located behind the protective trim at the lower front side of the machine. Remove the trim and rotate the filter cap anticlockwise. Be prepared to collect the water that will flow through the filter. After cleaning the filter perform operations in reverse order to reassemble. Disconnect power before starting.
The pump is located at the bottom of the machine, behind the filter. Accessing the pump requires disassembling.

Diagrams for WM-2077 are available here.

Washer is flashing f2

F2 on a Whirlpool Duet means their is a problem with the Drain Pump or Drain Pump Filter. The Drain Pump and Filter are located at the bottom of the Washing machine. You must remove the front, bottom panel to gain access to the Drain Pump and Filter. Disconnect the Filter and Drain Hoses and clear them out. If they are clear, you may need to replace your Drain Pump.

  1. Unplug the washer.

How do I clean the washer pump filter in my GE-WCVH6600HGG?

please go through this
  • Examine if there's a problem with the filter. If the machine isn't draining, spinning or agitating, the washer pump filter may be clogged, and you should clean the pump filter. Other giveaways that the filter may need cleaning include the washer performing an incomplete cycle, the timer not advancing or the washer just not running

  • Open the pump access door with a coin. Remove the pump filter by turning it counterclockwise and pulling it out.
  • Clean the filter with your fingernails, removing all loose debris. Wash the filter under running water until it is clean.

  • Replace the filter. Insert it back into its housing, turn it clockwise and close the door.

  • i hope this helps you ,thank you

    Engine runs , not getting any water flow when trigger pressed.

    Disconnect hoses.
    Look for kink in water hose.
    Check incoming water connection for filter washer
    Replace filter washer
    If you don't have a filter washer, put one in.
    Hook up water, and turn on
    Water should come out other side of pump.
    Turn on machine.
    Do you get pressured water out of pump.
    If no pressure, then pump is suspect
    Hook up washer hose without gun
    Does pressure come out of washer hose
    Finally, the gun trigger may be bad.

    We had to buy guns now and then.
    Search for pressure washer guns
    Following link shows guns we used:

    I have a duet sport wfw8300 it does not finish cycle and it flashes F 21

    F21 = LONG DRAIN
    If the drain time exceeds 8 minutes the water valves turn off.
    Press PAUSE/CANCEL two times to clear the display.

    If you had this washer for sometime the most likely cause is Item 4. If so remove the lower front panel place a pan under the white filter (before the pump)
    remove the filter and clean and remove any foreign material and reinstall filter.


    1. Check the drain hose and make sure it is not plugged or kinked.
    2. Unplug washer or disconnect power.
    3. Check the electrical connections at the pump and make sure the pump
    is running.
    4. Check the drain pump filter for foreign objects.
    5. Plug in washer or reconnect power.
    6. If the above does not correct the problem, go to step 7.
    7. Unplug washer or disconnect power.
    8. Replace the pump.
