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.
This is not the same washer but all the parts are the same. Please check here for a more detailed appoarch to this problem. Click Here

GETTING AN ERROR MESSAGE OF FL, WHAT DOES THIS MEAN?


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.

Kenmore Elite top load washer will not begin wash cycle and keeps flashing "FL" and beeping twice every few seconds. Tried unplugging it to see if the electronics would re-boot. How can i correct this...


Hi


Thanks for using FixYa. Error LF or FL means long fill, which flashes when the water level won’t change for a period of time after the valves are turned on or the water has disengaged the basket but control does not detect a water level change. TO resolve this issue check if the water supply is turned on and the hose screens are not plugged or kinked. If the water is not entering the machine then check the water valve, also check the pressure hose connection to the machine/motor control. Please do rate the solution if the issue is resolved or post a comment for further assistance.


Thanks

Machine stoped after wash cycle tub did not drain and reads F L kenmore elite calypso model #22064 100 type 170 cannot get it to start at all it keeps beeping and reads 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 check "valve" in the drain assembly that seems to sometimes cause problems with the FL error code. You can remove this piece, and might avoid changing the pump.

Fl code on kenmore calypso cannot clear


this is the fl code on a whirlpool calypso which is probably the same since kenmore is just a name,, whirlpool built the machine if u didnt know kenmore doesnt build anything they just put their name on things... (FL is a flood conditon.) 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.

Kenmore elite washer problem


sounds as if you have a drain issue, most common cause of fault is theres something stuck in the pump housing. remove the lower acess panel(3 screws along the bottom of the forn of unit) youll gain acess to the pump housing, remove the large cover to the "button trap" by uncscrewimg the cover, it will be righthin front of you in the center of machine when cover removed, im sure youll find your blockage within there

Washer flashing F then went to SUD


Drop the drain hose so that it is lower than the drain and let all the water run out of the machine. Open the door and remove all washing. Let machine go through rinse cycle with some milk mixed in with the water, (pour the milk into the soap container, about one cup) and make sure there are no soap suds left in the machine. Check that you are using washing powder which is recommended for front loaders.
