The digital box shows the letter FL. We cannot get maching to operate. We cannot get the FL off the box.


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.

Am getting an FL error code and even though I have emptied the washer and unplugged it several times it will not reset. Anyone else ever have this problem?


“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 lock 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.
Find the small clear hose that goes to the control and blow it out to get the sediment out so that the control can know when the right amount of water is in there. Resesure and pump out standing water before retry.

Hi and welcome to FixYa,

Initially, "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 lock 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.

Just a start, do postback how things turned up or should you need additional information. Good luck and Thank you for using FixYa.
