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 trio 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 secondson 30 seconds off untill the

overfill switch resets or power is

discontinued to the unit.

Note: Press STOP/CANCEL to clear display on all error codes

Causes of flood condition. Inlet valves

stuck on, Sediment in water level pressure

tube.

Other codes:
PF power failure
Er control lost settings during PF
LF Long fill Clogged inlet screens
CE Com error between motor and control
Ld Long drain Clogged/slow drain/pump
CA/CI Motor amping up
ob off balance load
Sr relay failure no control to motor
LS Lid switch no signal from lid switch, error occurs if the motor and control disagree as to the position of the lid switch. Usually means corosion is buit up in the switch and the motor knows the lid is shut but the control does not. Cose appears when start button is pressed.
open lid= flashing display time If the lid is opened time remaining flashes in display. Close lid and press start to continue.
SL Suds Lock Current draw on motor is sensed by motor control and a suds lock is declared The control trys 3 times to fix this by doing a mini cycle, SL is displayed if the unit was unable to correct the problem. This problem is caused by:
Bad pump
Extra heavy load
Excessive detergent
or Excessive suds/wrong stuff

Whirlpool calypso top load washer stuck on FL


Fl means flood
you either have a bad flood switch or something is in the pump.
the pump is located under the washer
if you where to tip back and remove the 3 5/16 inch screws and look to the very right you will see the pump.
it could be these 2 things and or it could be something in your sump balls. which you would need special tools to gain access to.
let me know if this helps

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.

Getting ''FL'' error code w/Whirlpool Calypso


you can try unplugging the washer and letting it reset the system. thenplug it inand press the spin/drain button. if it still gives you the flood condition chances are the pump is faulty and needs to be replaced. it may be covered under whirlpools warranty for the law suite against the washer. otherwise you can get the pump off ebay for cheep and install it yourself. its just a little messy so if you do it yourself make sure you have a shop vac around to **** up the excesswater.
