Getting FL error with Beeping and can't open door now

Been washing clothes all day. This time, after I pressed the start button, the water began but a 'do' error started flashing, then after some more beeping it changed to 'FL' error. Now nothing is happening & can't open the door. I've stopped and started the machine but it gets me to the same point. I've also unplugged and replugged as still same results

    I have the exact same problem. I spoke w/a Sear rep and was told to unplug it for 20 minutes. I did for 45 and it still does not work.

This just happened to us.

There is a release cord/string that can be accessed from the front of the soap/softner dispenser.

Remove the trays in the dispenser and reach towards the front of the machine. Find the end of the nylon line. Grasp firmly and pull to your left if your are facing the maching. I had to pull a few time before the door opened because I couldn't get a good grip and I didn't know how hard to pull without breaking the string. It might help to push in on the door at the same time, to realease.

I have to say, I was really surprized to find the nylon line as I was looking for a way to remove the tray and try reaching to see if there was a latch release.

I have a Whirlpool Duet Washer and I keep getting an error code "FL". Can someone please tell me what it means and how do I fix it?


F8 E1 or LO FL Code in display:

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.

LE error code has popped up & suddenly the control lock is on, I have pressed the control lock & it counted 3,2,1 & nothing happens, won't unlock & LE is still there


if the door locks and wont unlock
LE error
then your machine still has water in it from the last spin/ wash

i think its a blocked up waste outlet
or the pump is blocked up

you need to check the machine is draining correctly and in a timely manner.,..
or it will fail
you need to fully drain the machine then turn off the mains
wait 5 mins and the door will then open
then check the drainage...

Why is my washer displaying a "DR" when I push start?


  • 1 Press any button on the display panel.
  • 2 Wait five seconds and then press and hold the "Start/Pause" button and the "Cancel" button at the same time.
  • 3 Open and shut the door. A "DR" error code indicates that there is a problem with the door, most likely that it has not shut properly. Check to make sure there are no clothes or other items caught in the door.
  • 4 Open the door and gently wiggle the door latch if the door does not click shut. Clean it with a damp cloth to remove excess dirt or debris that may prevent the door from latching into position.
  • 5 Close the door and re-select a new wash cycle and "Start."

    In the middle of washing a load of clothes the letters fl showed up and the washer started beeping what do i do about this and what does fl mean


    FL - Overfill Condition
    This error message occurs only if the machine control board
    sees an open circuit at P17. If this is the case:
    ■ Press Stop/Cancel to clear the display.
    ■ With the power disconnected, check the upper harness
    connection to P17 on the machine control. Look for any
    contaminants on the contacts. There should be a closed
    circuit in the harness between P17 contacts 1 and 3.
    ■ Replace the upper harness or machine control as necessary.

    FL error code generally means 'flood condition' which is telling you the machine is overfilling with water with water.

    Try pressing STOP/CANCEL to clear the display.

    If the condition persists the water fill valve or sensor may be faulty and may need replacement.

    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.

    LG Tromm washer constant DE door error problem


    A DE Error Code is indicative of a “Door Error”. This indicates that the washing machine door is not shutting, locking or opening. This means that there is something faulty with the door switch and locking mechanism . You should get this replaced or you may have water where you do not want it. biigg53566
