Re: General Electric Washer
This problem is commonly caused by a pressure switch malfunction. This switch is located behind the water level or load size selector knob inside the operator console. If you remove the back of the console you will be able to access the switch. The pressure switch has some electrical connections and an air hose attached to it. The air hose runs from the switch to the bottom side of the wash tub. Air pressure from the tub increases as the tub fills with water and, depending on the water level selected, determines WHEN the water shuts off. Now...commonly what happens is the air hose comes loose from the pressure switch and it will no longer shut off. The following link explains:
I would check the air hose, first. Often, all that is required is to reattach the hose and the problem is solved. However, if the air hose is intact and has no leaks or splits anywhere, I would recommend replacing the pressure switch. A replacment can be purchased online at searspartsdirect.com. Just type in your model number and look under the "Controls and Backsplash" heading for item number 10 (part #WH12X10065). Repairclinic.com also carries the same part for slightly less (item number 2205).
This is a simple repair (even if you have to replace the switch) and won't cost much. I hope this helps you. Let me know if you require additional assistance.

No water detected entering washer after 13 minutes, the pressure switch input has not been detected.
If the washer has an F8 E1 error or LO FL error, the door will be locked, and the control will be unresponsive. Press the power button, and the washer will start a drain routine which takes approximately 8 to 10 minutes, during which time the pump will run continuously. The control will not accept any input during this time. Please wait 10 minutes before trying to perform any functions.
Check the water supply:
Turn on the water. Check the household water supply to see if the hot and cold water faucets are turned on. Make sure to open both faucets completely for proper fill.
NOTE: Both Hot and Cold water must be supplied to the washer.

This means that your Washer has somehow Over Filled with water and will "FL"ood if it does not drain the excess water:
It should also be beeping every 10 seconds and the pump should start to empty some water to rectify the issue. Restart the machine machine as required or push the overfill reset switch. To avoid flooding, you might need to temporarily shut the water supply if water continues to flow in the machine while the "FL" code is displayed. Hope it helps let me know how you go.
