Thank you for your question and I understand your concern.

The "F21" fault code will display if the drain time exceeds eight minutes. This fault code generally is caused by a restricted drain pump filter or using too much or the wrong kind of detergents.

The first thing to check and clean is the drain pump filter if the drain pump will run. If the drain pump is not running then it may have a jammed or faulty drain pump. I added an image below with instructions on how to access and remove the drain pump filter for cleaning. NOTE: Disconnect the power cord from the power source before removing the lower access panel. Also, remove all the water that you can before removing the drain pump filter or all the water will pour out on the floor. Have a shallow pan and towels handy even though you have removed all the water from the tub there will be water left below the basket.

Thank you for your question.

I can understand wanting to know what the F21 code means.

Without the product name and model number I can only guess that this product is a front load washer.

The F21 error code is usually a long drain issue that can be caused by not using HE detergent or to much detergent or something in the pump not allowing the pump to pump the water in the pre-determined period of time.

Check the drain hose to make sure it is not blocked and then you may have to remove the lower panel on the washer by removing the bottom screws and then locating the pump cover and remove a clean the pump.

Using the images below you should be able to resolve the problem with the Long Drain error code F21.

If this is not a washer question please include the model number of the product and reply.

I hope this will help.

Thank you for using Manage My Life.

Thank you for your question. The F21 is long drain as I described in the previous answer. If you can open a look at the pictures in the previous answer it gives you a step by step procedure for cleaning the pump. Also the image below explains what you may have to do and if you are not mechanically inclined you may have to have and friend or neighbor helps you. Or you may have to call service to resolve the problem. Sam A.
