Whirlpool calypso top load washer stuck on FL

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

Water runs out underneath.

Pump is usually on bottom of machine towards the rear. Remove front panel or the back of machine. I think front is easier?

Just trying to gain access inside the calypso

Take a small flat head screw driver or putty knife. Put a thin peice of cloth over it so as to not mar the finnish on your machine. Using a flash light look between where the top panel and the front panel meet. There will be two flat green peices of metal. Using your putty knife or screw driver, push on these clips towards the rear of the machine while lifting up on the top portion. Once you get the two clips off, you'll be in. There will be 4 screws across the top of the front panel. Remove these and you'll be able to pull the top panel upwards and remove it. Next, pull the washer forwards and lean the top console back towards the wall until it can rest against the wall without trying to fall back forwards. Across the bottom towards the front, there are 3 5/16" screws. Remove these and the bottom panel will come off. The pump is on the botom right hand side with the two large back hoses attached. I prefer to put a large, shallow container underneath to catch anyremianing water when I dis-connect the hose(s) to try and remove debris from the pump.

Calypso fl error

Look along the seam in the front of the washer where the top meets the front panel. About two inches in from each side is a retaining clip. If you take a putty knife and push in on the clip while lifting up on the top, the top of the washer should open up. You may need the assistance of another person and use two putty knives at the same time. It can be a bit tricky sometimes, but the top does open in this manner. Once you have the top open, carefully rest it against the wall behind the washer. There will be a screw holding the front panel on at each top corner. Once you remove the screws, the front panel should come off exposing all the internal components of the washer. You can also remove the back panel for additional access. I hope this helps you.

Washer gets ld code

The ld fault is a long drain error. Check your drain pump reservoir and drain hoses for clogs. Removing the agitator in my opinion would be unnecessary. Unplug your machine and remove the back panel. There should be a drain pump reservoir at the bottom under the wash basin. They are notorious for collecting lint and hair and can obstruct the drain flow. You can also squeeze along the drain lines and feel for obstructions. To access the drain pump itself, its easier to remove the front panel. You will need to release the two metal hold down clips located under the front lip approx. two inches from either side. You need a putty knife to push in on the clips and lift on the top front at the same time. Once you have the top released, lift up and remove two screws holding the front panel. The front panel should pull away leaving an open access to the inside cabinet. The drain pump is located on the lower right-hand side of the wash tub at the very bottom of the unit. You can easily remove the two drain lines at the pump and check for obstructions there as well. Again, unplug the unit before servicing the pump. I hope this helps.
