Why does it still display on LED screen out of order code F21 I have tried unplugging and waiting 1 minutes and plug in same problem. Could it be a flow sensor or meter inside?

my book tells me that fault code specifically says drain time is taking to long , this is an indication of either a clogged drain hose (or vent) or in some cases can be a worn down pump impeller (on heavy use machines) or in extreme cases your idea could be correct and the water level sensor is not showing a m/t basket so it gives this fault , a sure divider to this way of thinking is to watch machine (no soap or clothes) for moment it gets that fault , if theres water in drum then sensor is right and u need to took better at pump and drain hoses , if its M/T then sensor is wrong

Error code f21 sud

Firstly you need to unplug and need to check the pump is not blocked. Take the machine to a rear yard or area where you can drain the water from the machine as there will be a few gallons inside it.
The pump may have a filter unit on the front bottom of the machine or hidden at the rear behind the panel . There will be a lot of water still in the machine which ever filter you need to remove.
Sounds as if its blocked with socks , underwire Bra money etc a DRAINAGE FAULT F21

F21 flashing on my bosch classixx 6 1200 express

F21 is a motor fault and in some cases can also involve a module fault. It could be as simple as the brushes need replacing or the drum has been severely out of balance.

I have a siemens washing machine that says f21 what does that mean

Many thanks. For F21 fault everyone was talking about the drain valve but found one answer related to power supply n board this helped. Resetting by turning program switch to 12 o clock then turn to 6 o click then keep spin button pressed n move knob to 7 o clock position. Then release spin n move knob to 12 o clock. This way F21 got resetted.

My machine will not finish load. it flashes the f21.. i unplug it it goes to 85 minutes. i reset it to rinse and spin. remove the 2nd rinse. sometimes it goes through sometimes it doesn't and goes back...


The F21 error code is displayed when the water didn't drain in the normal time,the usual reason the washer did nto drain with in the normal time is because the filter screen on the pump is clogged. This tip i wrote will show ya how to take apart the washer and clean the filter on the pump.

Bosch classixx 6 1400 machine stopped working during cycle f21 on display

F21 relates to a motor or control board fault.

However, it is also caused by spikes in the mains and can be spurious.

To reset it.

Turn the appliance knob to the off or reset position, 12 o'clock.

Turn the knob to the 6 o'clock position.

Press and hold the spin button.

While holding it, turn the knob to the 7 o'clock position.

Continue holding the spin button for about 5 seconds.

Release the button.

Turn the knob to off.

When your turn it back on it should have cleared the error code
