Hello sorry to hear you are having trouble, I'm Joel and will be glad to help you today.

The F21 is a drain error meaning the washer is taking too long to drain so the computer is shutting the cycle down and showing the F21 error code.

Usually you just need to clean out the pump coin/filter trap, below is a video showing how to clean out the pump trap. If that does not stop the error from happening then the drain pump will need to be replaced on the washer. Let me know if that does not fix it and I can give you the pump part number and instructions to replace it, thanks.
