My FL code was flashing. So I took the drain hose out of the vent pipe and laid it on the floor. (Luckily my washer is in the basement) The water poured out and so did a penny. I'm crossing my fingers, because there were 2 pennies sitting on the washer ... So far it is working great. I have had this set since they first came out and have only had one other problem with it & that was after company kept changing their mind DURING the wash cycle & resetting it.
I've had this issue three times. On the first case, I found my external drain hose ( the hose from your washing machine to the drain in your wall) was clogged with a penny. The original external drain hose has a valve that keeps water from coming back into the washing machine. The penny had lodged in the vlave. On the second occassion, a piece of a hankerchief was caught in the drain pump. This pump has a "propeller" that pulls the water out of the washing machine and pushes it out to the external drain hose. I took it off the drain pump motor and tried to clean it. The original pump is solid and you can't take it apart to clean it. I did the best I could, then put it back on. It made a loud noise when draining. Whirlpool no longer sales just the drain pump, you have to buy a complete new pump and motor combo. It costs about $70 on e-bay (new). It is fairly easy to install (30 min). The good thing about the new pump is that you can take the cover of the pump off without taking the pump motor off. The third time I took the pumpef cover off and found a penny lodged in the pump. After taking it out, the machine ran well.
Note 1: A good way to drain your washing machine is to take a hose pipe and put it in the top of the machine and then use a manual air mattress pump (in reverse mode) on the opposite end of the hose that you put outside. After several pumps on the air mattress pump sucking the water through the hose, you will create a suction that will keep flowing until much of the water is out of your tub. Be ready with several containers to catch the rest of the water when you take the hoses off the pump.
Note 2: Check pockets well to keep things from getting into the drain system. Use a delicate wash bag (a mesh bag) to wash undergarmets, hose, hankerchiefs, and other thin items that might get sucked into the drain system.

No water detected entering washer after 13 minutes, the pressure switch input has not been detected.
If the washer has an F8 E1 error or LO FL error, the door will be locked, and the control will be unresponsive. Press the power button, and the washer will start a drain routine which takes approximately 8 to 10 minutes, during which time the pump will run continuously. The control will not accept any input during this time. Please wait 10 minutes before trying to perform any functions.
Check the water supply:
Turn on the water. Check the household water supply to see if the hot and cold water faucets are turned on. Make sure to open both faucets completely for proper fill.
NOTE: Both Hot and Cold water must be supplied to the washer.

The FL error code means: 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.
Press STOP/CANCEL to clear the display.
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.
The FL Code means that the door failed to lock. Turn the machine off and restart the cycle. If this does not clear the error message and the machine does not return to normal, you will need to contact a Samsung repair service.

displays error codes. Though designed to indicate the nature of the
error, to anyone without a copy of a washer manual handy, the codes
might as well be Martian cryptography. Luckily, the Manage My Life
website has partnered with Kenmore and made manuals for each make and
model of Kenmore washer available online. The error codes are
differentiated between top and front-loading machines.
FH Error Code
When a front-loading Kenmore residential washer displays the "FH"
error code, the machine is experiencing a water-inlet problem. A
water-inlet problem is the result of the washer receiving too little
water to operate. The Kenmore owner's manual suggests five home remedies
for this problem: Check that the water faucets
connected to the washer are turned on; that the inlet screens in the
washer's connection hose are not clogged; that the hose is not kinked;
and that the hose is not frozen. If none of these problems are present,
turn off the washer, unplug it, plug it back in, and restart the
FL Error Code
The "FL" error code on a top-loading Kenmore residential washer
indicates that the machine has over filled. When a residential Kenmore
washer is overfull, it will beep every 10 seconds. The pump will cycle
on and off every 30 seconds in an attempt to rectify the problem. To
stop the pump or restart the machine, either disengage and then
re-engage the power source to the washer, or push the overfill reset
switch. If water continues to enter the machines after the "FL" error
has appeared, shut off the inlet flow faucet or the machine will overflow.
F02 Error Code
The "F02" error code on a front-loading Kenmore residential
washer indicates that the machine is experiencing a drainage problem.
Home-remedy solutions for this error code, as suggested by the Kenmore
manual, are similar to those for the "FH" error code: Insure that the
drainage hose is not kinked, frozen, or clogged. If none of these
problems are present, check that the hose is less than 96 inches, or 8
feet, above the floor. A hose more than eight feel from the floor will
not drain properly
