Which model do you have? On the front-loading washing machine, WAW28790IN and the WAW24440IN, press and hold the Ready in +/- button for 3+ seconds to toggle the child lock on and off. For the WAW28460AU, press and hold the Finished In +/- button for the 3+ seconds. On all of these models, this button is below the LCD panel on the right hand side. The directions for engaging the child lock are on the button or just below it in a much smaller font than the primary feature of the button.

I found most of the serie 8 ovens have a dedicated button for the control panel lock. On the HRG6769S6B, press and hold the button with the key icon (the middle button to the left of the start/stop button) for 4+ seconds to toggle the child lock on and off. For the HBG672BS1B, this button is the lower button to the right of the start/stop button. Again press and hold for 4+ seconds.

I hope this helps. Please add a comment with the model number if you need more information about the control panel/child lock for your specific appliance.

It is a long time since a washing machine motor had a capacitor. These days a washer motor is a brush type motor that allows semiconductor speed control as determined by the computerised electronic programmer.

The motors are fairly reliable but the brushes do wear out every so often and need replacing. Perhaps that is the problem...

F21 (or E21) normally indicates a fault with the motor or the main control board.

Try erasing the stored codes first, in case it's a spurious fault

Turn the knob to off.

Close the door.

Turn the knob to 6 o'clock position.

Wait 2 seconds.

The start/pause should begin flashing.

Press and hold the spin button.

Turn the knob to 7 o'clock position.

Wait 2 seconds.

Release the button.

Turn the knob to off.

This should erase the error code and get you running again.

If the error code returns, you have a problem with the motor (most likely carbon brushes), wiring or main control.

If the machine won't go into diagnostics to erase the error code, it would suggest a faulty control board.

Try it several times to see if you get it reset.

If the start button doesn't flash, just carry on trying to erase the codes.
