Top Load Whirlpool washing Machine

When you start washing machine it fills up with water and then stops. To get it started again you have to pick up the lid and let it drop from about 1/2 to 3/4 open. It usually takes 1-3 tries before it starts back. Some times it will stop between other cycles, but 90% of the time it is right after it fills with water the first time. I've recently replaced the lid switch and that didn't fix it.

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.

Whirlpool top loader

You either have a defective pressure switch or water inlet valve. Start to fill the machine with warm water so that both solenoids on the water inlet valve (hot and cold) are activated. After about 30-60 seconds, push the timer knob in to stop water flow. If the water continues to flow, replace the water inlet valve. If this is the case, it may take a few times of starting and stopping water flow to allow solenoid to heat up and become symptomatic. If water flow stops abruptly each time knob is pushed in, you most likely have a defective pressure switch (water level switch).
