    Thank you! Actually, I just left it overnight & this morning I pushed start & the door locked and unlocked, but then it started to rinse & finished out the cycle.

    You'd think the solution would be listed simply in a troubleshooting guide in the darn manual. It would have saved me a lot of trouble- now the clothes my boys needed for school are barely going to be dry for them to put on! That will teach me to wash all their jeans and boxers in one load! Also, I spent a good while online trying to find out what to do & from what I was finding I thought I'd have to call for service!



    Thanks for taking the time to help out... too bad I wasn't awake at 0330 when you posted that- the boys clothes would be nice and dry by now!



    I'm in the market for a new set- full size stackable.... any recommendations? My appliance store recommends the new "Duet"... comments?

    I also had a power surge and have the same PF in the display.

    What does the PF code mean and how can I make my washer work?  It has standing water in the drum.

The poster who advised me to unplug the unit for about 5-10 minutes was likely right and I probably could have done that and been able to restart the cycle last night but I waited until this morning and just selected "rinse" and pushed start. The door locked, then unlocked and the cycle stopped... BUT... then it started draining & finished correctly.
Chrf's assistance was definitely helpful- wish I'd been up at 0330 to try it because waiting all night for it to 'rest' on its own certainly messed up the clothing situation for my boys this morning!!

great website- thanks for being here!

It stands for power failure. i would unplug the machine for 5 or 10 minutes and that should reset the micro computer.

    hello 3dirtyboys, hopefully a little cleaner today. i can understand as i do auto repair, home and a/c repair. sometimes i think i am a dirt magnet. as far as recommending a newer unit, i am not very familiar with most of the newer brands, but i have a friend who is, ill ask him and get back to you. i can tell you this, my mom has a kenmore thats about 12 to 15 years old that has had only 2 problems. the timer burned( some of the points inside it, which i repaired ). a new one would have cost $75. also the pump clogged which i also fixed by taking it apart and removing the hair...just about anyone could replace timer or clean pump with a little on line guidance. anyway, have a good one. ill try to get back with more advice in the next few days or so. chrisfrost@cox.net

Code reads FL Door will not open. Ran spin cycle on empty to get water out after well went dry.


FL code indicates that the machine failed to detect that the door was locked. Perhaps the controller became confused when the fill failed (due to well). Try unplugging the machine for 15 minutes, and then plug back in. You may get the PF (Power Fail) code, but that is normal. You should be able to start a new cycle from this code.

If the door still will not open, please post back.

Sometimes there is water that fills in my washer after I use it. It does not happen right away but by the next day. I don't know the model but I do know this is an old washer....gold....I have had it for...


Q - My washer seems to keep filling  with water, the water keeps coming in the washer and going out the drain without the washermotor running.
A - This often is a drain hose that is too low or a drain hose that has been pushed too far down inside the stand pipe....the water is actually siphoning out of the washer. Do not "seal" the drain hose to the house plumbing pipe, this will also allow the water to be siphoned out.
