Whirlpool calypso top load washer getting FL error message
I was washing pillows and one of the pillows ruptured allowing the pillow filling to get into the washer drum, now getting FL error message. Any idea what this means? i suspect the pump may have gotten plugged with the pillow filling.

Fl means flood
you either have a bad flood switch or something is in the pump.
the pump is located under the washer
if you where to tip back and remove the 3 5/16 inch screws and look to the very right you will see the pump.
it could be these 2 things and or it could be something in your sump balls. which you would need special tools to gain access to.
let me know if this helps
“FL” (Over Fill) flashes The washer will beep every 10 seconds with no time-out. The pump will cycle one half minute on, one half minute off, until the overfill switch is reset or power is discontinued to the unit. Press STOP/CANCEL to clear the display. Shut off the water faucets to the inlet hoses if water continues to flow.
If you let the tub fill, then put the pillows in, you may have caused the water level to overflow the outer tub somewhat. If you didn't smell smoke or hear any frying sounds, the motor is probably ok. Does the washer seem to operating normally?
The washer filled with too much water, causing a switch to trip. Then everything stops. It tries to drain during FL but if it can't drain, the washer powers down.Choose Drain & Spin to let the washer drain. Then you have to take the washer apart. Fix the problem. I personally can't tell you what to do because I don't own a Calypso.
High Water Flow

If it still happens you need to get a service guy out.
hi suggest you try this? use a spare small pillow case and put all smaller items in it then tie up open end witha a cord then put in washer they will wash and not get eaten by washer////// there are string bags with tie cord on the market at tesco etc that are designed for this purpose ?and are not expensive
