If water is overflowing and you disconnect power to the machine. then:
A. It continues to fill: Replace water fill valve. (the part the fill hoses screw onto)
B. It stops filling: Most likely has a plugged tube from the tub to the water level switch.

Whirlpool front load washer is giving a FL CODE


Hello Tresea , it sound like a FL code has cause this following problem at best 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. Are you using a HE type soap? If not you must reduce the amount being used. Is the pump draining? let us know.

I have a frigidaire affinity front load washer and it's leaking out the back at the top right corner. Do you know what could be causing this?


Hi ajdean01 - I see that your tub appears to be leaking. Here are a few troubleshooting tips that may help you get to the root cause:



· First, be sure that your tub is not overloaded. Sometimes when overfilled, water can and will slosh outside of the unit.

· If the tub is not overfilled, check your hoses and other connections. Like most laundry units, there is always some vibration associated with the functionality of the machine. As the appliance is used over time, hoses and other connections can loosen and begin to leak. Be sure to secure any loose connections.

· If the above items did not assist you in resolving the issue, it could be a number of other underlying causes - primarily an electronic pressure sensor, switch, thermistor or the unit's main control board. These parts are commonly replaced by experienced service technicians.

What is the lf code on the cabrio washer?


FL 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.

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.
