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.
