This means that your Washer has somehow Over Filled with water and will "FL"ood if it does not drain the excess water:

It should also be beeping every 10 seconds and the pump should start to empty some water to rectify the issue.
Restart the machine machine as required or push the overfill reset switch.
To avoid flooding, you might need to temporarily shut the water supply if water continues to flow in the machine while the "FL" code is displayed.
Hope it helps let me know how you go.

Receiving error code FL on washer display.


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.

Samsung WF350ANR/XAA has an error code FL and door will not lock to start cycle


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.

In the middle of washing a load of clothes the letters fl showed up and the washer started beeping what do i do about this and what does fl mean


FL - Overfill Condition
This error message occurs only if the machine control board
sees an open circuit at P17. If this is the case:
■ Press Stop/Cancel to clear the display.
■ With the power disconnected, check the upper harness
connection to P17 on the machine control. Look for any
contaminants on the contacts. There should be a closed
circuit in the harness between P17 contacts 1 and 3.
■ Replace the upper harness or machine control as necessary.
