Kenmore washing machine model 20712990 wont spin


If you don't hear a click when you close lid, replace lid switch. If when in spin, you hear motor but does not spin, replace motor coupler.

Washer won't drain..like filter is clogged


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.

Kenmore 90 series


you can look at the water pump inlet and outlet hoses. sometimes socks and other small items would be sucked in and blocked the water from going out.

another theory would be the clutch on the spin cycle is slipping that is why the drum is not spinning as fast as it should.

tnx 4 using fixya,
