Question about Whirlpool GSX9885J Top Load Washer
I have a GSX9885JQ0. We've had it for about 4-5 years now. Never had a problem until now. The machine beeped (as when done with the load) My wife went to put those clothes in the dryer, but the tub was still full of soapy water. She put it in the rinse cycle to rinse the clothes and the motor runs, the tub spins, but the pump is not draining the water. I hear a clicking sound when the motor is running too.
The start stop start stop is caused by the motor trying to come out of the start winding into the run winding and can not your need to find out if the main motor has 120 volts fgoing to the run winding if it has then the motor need sto be replaced

The pump which drains the water sounds to be faulty and may need repaired/replaced. also check to see if there is a clog in the drainage hole.

To my knowledge, most problems such as one you have can be caused by three (3) possibilities:
1. electronic - the activating circuitry that engages the drain valve is faulty;
2. electrical - the drain valve is not opening evening if electronically activated; and
3. mechanical - the drain valve is stuck or the most likely, the drain passageway is clogged.
The last would be your best option and possibly the easiest to correct.
To recap, you hear a clicking sound means that the drain valve opens, you hear the motor, means the drain motor is running, but no water drains out, that only leaves a clogged system.
Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.
Good luck and kind regards.
Thank you for using FixYa.

Tips for a great answer:
Hello & Welcome to FixYa
FL error indicates flood condition and is caused due to any overfill condition that occurs inside the washer. To clear the display you can press and hold the STOP/CANCEL button. Usually this error is caused when overfill switch trips due to excessive water in the tub. You can also try to clean the drain hose and check the water inlet valve. Please get back to me if you have any other questions.
