Hi,


Thanks for using FixYa. Error LF or FL means long fill, which flashes when the water level won’t change for a period of time after the valves are turned on or the water has disengaged the basket but control does not detect a water level change. TO resolve this issue check if the water supply is turned on and the hose screens are not plugged or kinked. If the water is not entering the machine then check the water valve, also check the pressure hose connection to the machine/motor control. Please do rate the solution if the issue is resolved or post a comment for further assistance.


Thanks
Rylee

Whirlpool front load washer is giving a FL CODE


Hello Tresea , it sound like a FL code has cause this following problem at best 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 lock condition in order for "FL" to be displayed. Are you using a HE type soap? If not you must reduce the amount being used. Is the pump draining? let us know.

Machine stoped after wash cycle tub did not drain and reads F L kenmore elite calypso model #22064 100 type 170 cannot get it to start at all it keeps beeping and reads FL


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.

There is a check "valve" in the drain assembly that seems to sometimes cause problems with the FL error code. You can remove this piece, and might avoid changing the pump.

Remove the front lower panel, screws underneath. Be prepared for water, drain out from drain hose. Check filter for clogging, clean out. Sometimes when the load is unbalanced & the machine cannot adjust the load it stops. To avoid this make sure your wash is mixed with big and small clothes.
If this does not work remove the rear panel & check belt, should have half inch ‘give’. Still not good, remove belt, unscrew 2 bolts that hold the motor, unplug the motor connector, lever the motor back with a screwdriver. Check the motor brushes (at terminal end of motor), if they are any shorter than 1 cm replace brushes.

Calypso fl error


Look along the seam in the front of the washer where the top meets the front panel. About two inches in from each side is a retaining clip. If you take a putty knife and push in on the clip while lifting up on the top, the top of the washer should open up. You may need the assistance of another person and use two putty knives at the same time. It can be a bit tricky sometimes, but the top does open in this manner. Once you have the top open, carefully rest it against the wall behind the washer. There will be a screw holding the front panel on at each top corner. Once you remove the screws, the front panel should come off exposing all the internal components of the washer. You can also remove the back panel for additional access. I hope this helps you.
