F27 = OVERFLOW CONDITION

Did you inspect the filter for clogs I have seen this happen many times The filter is located behind front lower panel and can be white in color follow the hoses its before the pump. I have seen the filter clogged and give these type of symptoms

but here is error code F27 out of the maintenance manual
If the overflow contact on the pressure switch is closed for more than
60 seconds, an Overflow Condition occurs. In an
overflow condition, the door remains locked and the drain pump runs
constantly, even if PAUSE/CANCEL is pressed twice and the display is
cleared. Turn off hot and cold water faucets and unplug the unit before
servicing.

1. Check the drain hose and make sure it is not plugged or kinked.
2. Unplug washer or disconnect power.
3. Check wire harness connections to the drain pump, pressure switch,
water inlet value, and Central Control Unit (CCU).
4. Check/clean drain pump filter of foreign objects.
5. Check for drain pump failure.
6. Check the inlet valve for proper shut off.
7. Check the pressure switch for proper operation.

Whirlpool duet steam washer error f21


The F21 code is a ' drain issue ' --- if you remove the bottom panel from the machine you will see the water pump right there,, just in front of the pump you will see a clean out area,, unscrew counter clockwise and remove the catch screen,,, it most likely has a few things in it ,, clean out - re-install and start the cycle. and the F21 code should be gone AND washer is back up and running.

Have you checked the filter, hose, and plumbing where drain hose goes to?

If you have and none of these are blocked then you have a faulty drain pump which will need replacing

F21 is flashing on the display


If this is a Whirlpool Duet series front loading washer, "F21" is a Long Drain error code. This is usually an indication that you may have an obstruction somewhere in the drainage system. Most commonly, there is something lodged in the drain pump or inlet line running from the wash tub to the pump. There is a white screw off cap on the drain pump that you can remove to inspect the pump impeller and clean. The following link explains:

http://www.fixya.com/support/r3608588-f21_error_code

Included is a follow-on link that explains how to check the drain pump to clean. You may also have to remove the inlet hose that runs from the bottom of the wash tub to the inlet side of the drain pump. Debris and small articles of clothing such as socks or under garments can commonly clog in this area as well causing the drain cycle to fail.

NOTE: A "SUD" error code can often occur in conjunction with the "F21" error code. This is due to air being detected in the drainage system, which can occur if the pump is not running, or if you have an obstruction BEFORE the pump. You need to remove the inlet hose from the pump to ensure it is also not blocked. Correct your drainage system fault, and the SUD error (if displayed) should go away.

NOTE: If these preliminary measures do not correct your problem, you may have to replace the drain pump. It does not take much to damage the pump impeller or motor. Since the error code is generated if the drain cycle exceeds 8 minutes, if the pump is damaged and can't pump at the required volume, the error code will continue to appear until the pump is replaced. If the pump requires replacement, the following link explains how:

We have a Whirlpool Duet HE washer/dryer. The washer keeps saying ''sud'' and we also get a ''F21'' error. The washer will not drain, and we are getting frustrated. Any idea on how to fix this?

Whirlpool duet washer getting a f21 code.sems water not empting


"F21" is a Long Drain error code. This is an indication that you have an obstruction somewhere in the drainage system. In most cases, this means you probably have a clog in the drain pump. The following link explains:

http://www.fixya.com/support/r1484065-f21_error_code_whirlpool_duet_kenmore

You may have something getting caught in the pump impeller and slowing it down. Included is a follow-on link that explains how to check the drain pump to clean. You may also have to remove the inlet hose that runs from the bottom of the wash tub to the inlet side of the drain pump. Debris can commonly clog in this area as well causing the drain cycle to fail.

NOTE: If these preliminary measures do not correct your problem, you may have to replace the drain pump. It does not take much to damage the pump impeller or motor. Since the error code is generated if the drain cycle exceeds 8 minutes, if the pump is damaged and can't pump at the required volume, the error code will continue to appear until the pump is replaced.

NOTE: The "SUDS" error can commonly occur with the F21 error code as this is can be generated when air is sensed in the drainage system.
If the door won't open it could be jammed due to the program being interrupted.

If you have questions about this repair, or require additional assistance, please let me know. I hope this helps you.

NOTE: If replacing the drain pump is required, the following link explains how:

http://www.fixya.com/support/r401845-replacing_drain_pump_whirlpool_duet

For troubleshooting guidance, the washer comes with a technical data sheet. It should be located behind the lower toe panel directly below the door. If not located behind the panel, it will be affixed to one of the interior cabinet walls. The tech sheet includes diagnostics procedures, troubleshooting tips and the error code list.

Were is pump filter


The following link explains how to access the drain pump on a Whirlpool Duet front loader and clean it:

http://www.fixya.com/support/r385845-checking_drain_pump_in_whirlpool_duet

If you are experiencing problems with the washer draining and/or reocurring error codes of "F02", "SUD", or "F21", these are all indications of a drainage problem.

It does not take much to cause irreparable damage to the drain pump. If these preliminary measures do not correct the problem, you will need to replace the drain pump. Since any error codes are associated with drain times that exceed 8 minutes, if the pump is damaged in any way, these error codes will continue to occur until the pump is replaced.

NOTE: Double check the electrical connections to the pump, as well, by unplugging it and reseating it.

Read through the link provided and let me know if you have any questions. I hope this helps you.
