Mary Marlowe Leverette, About.com Laundry & Laundry Rooms, says:

As you know, the error code E21 on an Electrolux Washer means that the "water is not pumping out fast enough". Here are some suggestions on what to check:

  • Take off the hoses completely and clean to be sure that there is no debris in the lines.
  • Remove the water pump to be sure that there is no debris at all that is impeding water flow.
  • Check the voltage to the drain pump. It should be receiving 120 volts. If it is not receiving the correct voltage, the control panel should be replaced.
  • It could also be the pressure sensor is not working correctly.
  • Lastly, replace the water pump and see if that corrects the problem. If not, it is the control system.

    Good luck!
