Hose from the pressure switch - check for a crack in it
this hose goes to an air chamber - check air chamber for blockage

It wont work it flashes fl


the Fl code indicates an overfill condition. If the washer is empty, then you likely have a problem with the water level pressure switch. If the washer is full of water and will not drain, you likely have a problem with the drain pump or the washer drain line.

If the washer is full of water, make sure that the washer drain is clear and working properly. Check the drain hose for kinks or clogs. If you find no problems with these issues, I recommend that you manually drain the washer using a wet/dry shop vacuum. Check the drain pump and connecting hoses for problems. You may need to replace the drain pump of water will drain out of the washer properly but the pump will not work properly. A clog in the check ball assembly at the bottom of the tub can also prevent the washer from draining properly.

Water pressure switch adjustment or clogged. Check the small connecting hose to the switch body.

Washer overfills and does not drain - entire floor was wet. What went wrong? How can I fix it?


Hi There
I have found the code you are looking for and i hope this helps you. Let me know how it went.
F/09 Overflow Condition
If the Overflow contact on the pressure switch is Closed for more than 60 seconds and Overflow condition will occur. In an Overflow condition, the Door will remain locked, and the Drain Pump will run constantly, even if PAUSE/CANCEL is pressed twice and the Display is cleared. Unplug the unit to service.
  • Check the drain hose and make sure it is not plugged or inked.
  • Check Wire Harness connectors to the Drain Pump, Pressure Switch, and Central Control Unit (CCU)
  • Check/Clean Drain Pump Filter of foreign objects
  • Check for Drain Pump Failure
  • Check the Inlet Valve for proper shut off
  • Check the Pressure switch for proper operation
thank you for writing to fix ya.
Best Regards Richard

My maytag washer leakes, all the water runs out on the floor.


Remove the rear access panel to check the source of the leak. The drain pump is most probably broken or the sump hose is damaged or detached from the tub.

Drain Pump Removal/Replacement Procedure (Maytag Neptune MAH5500B)
  1. Safety first. Unplug the machine.
  2. Remove the hose clamps and hoses from the pump.

My Maytag Atlantis washing machine doesn't fill


maytag has had multiple problems with the neptune series (atlantis included) units. Test the pressure switch for function and continuity, and also make sure pressure switch tubing is free and clear of obstruction or pinching. Replace pressure switch or tubing if needed. Pressure control may be located in machine control board on some models, if this is the case and the tubing is checking good, replace the machine control, not the interface or motor control board, and then test. all should be checking ok.

My Maytag Neptune washer continues filling with water e


Does it fill when the machine is powered down?

If it does then the fill valve is stuck open and needs replacing

If it does not then you need to check the pressure switch and the air bell on the outer drum which probably has a ball of jellyfied soap in it.

If you take the back off you will see a thin plastic or rubber hose going from the bottom of the drum to a small flying saucer type object.

If you pull the hose off the bottom connection and blow into it you should hear a clicking noise from the pressure switch.

If it clicks then clean out the air bell and refit the hose .

If it does not click then get a new pressure switch

A repairman would test it live but that is not recommended for untrained people

My maytag neptune mah550bww will not start up , gives a code FL


The FL error code means:
Flood Condition: FL flashes if any overfill condition occurs. This condition occurs when excessive water in the tub causes the overfill switch to trip. The control must realize that the trip was due to an overfill condition instead of a suds lack condition in order for FL to be displayed

With an overfill condition, the beeper repeats a warning every 10 seconds with no time-out. The pump is cycled in drain mode for 30 seconds on, 30 seconds off until the overfill switch resets or power is discontinued to the unit.

Press STOP/CANCEL to clear the display.

This problem i see on these are the water pumps getting clogged with lint or other things, causing the pump not to pump all of the water out at times.


There is a backup valve or flap in the drain assembly that seems to sometimes cause problems with the FL error code. Remove this piece to see if it helps.



If this is a new installation - check that the hoses arent reversed (cold on hot and hot on cold). This will also cause the FL error.
