Question about Washing Machines
What's the most common issue when this code appears (FL) on the whirlpool calypso washing machine?
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
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:
Extra heavy load
or Excessive suds/wrong stuff
