Frigidaire Gallery GLTF2940F washer - incomplete draining and E21 error code
Posted 18 April 2011 - 01:18 PM
I have a Frigidaire Gallery GLTF2940F, that sometimes does not complete the wash cycle. There are 2 different things it does. 1 it claims to finish the wash but all the clothes are super wet. 2 it claims the wash is paused, and I can hit start and it will continue and finish (maybe require 2 to 3 restarts, before it finishes the wash).
My Error Code is: E21, "Water not pumping out Fast enough".
I have read this forum and the fixitnow forum for advise on my issue, here is what I have tired:
I have removed the drain hose and taken it outside and hosed it out on my lawn, so its definitely clear of obstructions. I took the same lawn hose and put into my drain pipe to make sure the drain is not clogged.
I removed the pump and opened it up as much as i could and cleaned it out, and the rubber thing in front of the pump, but the issues still occur.

After you have emptied all of the water from the pump trap - put unit on drain/spin cycle without adding any water and observe operation - does it spin up to high speed during this cycle ?
While you are in there, remove the stupid little catcher cup that's in the tub-to-pump hose and ditch it, only causes headaches (you might find it full of goodies causing your issue) Looks like this:
