Often the issue on the Duet Sport is a bad drain pump or a clogged pump filter on the unit. The F21 means long drain. You need to remove the lower access panel on the washer. Remove the 4 screws along the bottom edge of the front panel and it will pull down and lift out. Once out you will see the pump and pump filter. Tip the unit against the wall about 45 degrees if possible and remove the pump filter housing, which is the large round disk that turns counterclockwise to remove it. Check in there for blockages. If there are no blockages in the pump filter you will need a new pump if the wiring is fine to the pump motor.. The have redesigned the pump and I have included links below for you to order the part and a video to help you install it.
