Maytag Epic Z F21 Error Code Fix
Flashing message says F21 or F-21 error code which is a Long Drain Time error code. This indicates that you have an obstruction or clog in the drainage system. Normally this will tell you that you probably have a clog in the drain pump. What no one tells it that it’s pretty easy to fix this one yourself.
It really 2 easy steps. Take off 3 screws and then open the drain clean out valve and remove the debris and it’s done.
Well, here’s a little bit more step by step than that.
Looking at the front of the washing machine, below the door there is a solid white metal section. At the very bottom (right along the floor) there are 3 screws that you can access from the front. Take off those three screws and the metal access panel will slip off. There are 2 plastic pins that are lodged in the top of the panel, so it will swing out towards you first. Don’t force it off, or you may damage those pins.
