SOURCE: Affinity E21 error
E21 means "Not pumping out fast enough". Could be debris caught in the pump inlet sump or pump body.
Disconnect the inlet sump from the pump. Disconnect the outlet hose from the pump. Remove the (2) screws, one on each side, holding the pump housing to the washer base. Unplug the wires from the pump motor and lift the pump assembly out.

Just fixed mine, only I did not have to take it all a part. Just tip it over and reached in thru the opening in the bottom. Took the clamp loose with a phillips screwdriver and pulled the rubber off that contains the filter. Stuck my hand in the opening and pushed up on the filter from the bottom on the rubber container. Out came the filter and I cleaned it and pushed back down inside until it was past the lip that held it in place. Works great, took about 10 mins., not bad for a woman, huh. Thanks for the info, could not have done without your diagram and information.

Yes, the original issue was the control from the beginning. the control is damaged and it cannot register the latch at this point. this is necessary and , it will fix the issue.

you would need to go into the fault codes and read them. the tech sheet should be under the lid or in the kick panel

Hello markramos66 - An error code E21 commonly refers to the water in your washer is not pumping out fast enough. First, check the drain hose for any restrictions or kinks. If you have check the hose and it appears to be clear and free, then potentially the underlying issue may be the main control board or pump. Generally it is a good idea to have a professional take a look at it to get to the root cause. Cost of parts and technical expertise entailed in these types of replacements can be a bit tricky.

Hello - Typically error code E21 indicates an issue with the water not pumping out fast enough. Does the unit make a humming noise? If so, either the drainage hose/pump is clogged and needs to be cleaned or you may have a faulty pump or control board. Contact a professional to move forward accurately.
