Pressure switch - it measures the weight of the water (in bars) and tells the valve to close.

Check/replace it.

The dish washer draining pump keeps going and water dose not come on


Tmachine is probably in flood sense mode. Tip it forward onto a towel and see if water runs out from the base. If so be careful not to flood the house, but empty the base carefully and run the machine. Check that it does not overfill again if it does there may be a sensor or water valve proble. Good luck

The water will not spin out and the digital display display FL and beeps. What is the problem? It's in a house where it hasn't been used for a couple of years but seems to be fine.


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.

Press STOP/CANCEL to clear the display.

OVERFILLED AND FLOODED HOUSE


1 of two problems happened.
1) either the water level sensor went bad. Which tells the water inlet valve when to shut off and the machine to start operating.
2) The water inlet valve has failed. This comes from the water hose and fills the washing machine.

Dishwasher not pumping water


anti flood mechanism activated in base pan you have a leak once the anti flood is activated in puts the machine into permanent drain thats why it runs even with the door open but only runs the drain pump not the wash pump.

Water overflow


Are you on a well? Often people with a lot of sediment in water get sick of the screens in water valve plugging up so they remove them. NEVER remove these screens. If any sediment gets into valve it can hold it open causing flooding. If you unplug unit and water still comes in you must replace valve.
