The "FL" code indicates that the washing machine was unable to lock the door after you closed it. Open and close the door tightly, then restart the washing cycle.

Code letters FL comes up and makes clicking sound


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.

What does fL code mean on the wtw6400sw3 washing machine


In your case, when your washer shows LF it means: washer is taking to Long to Fill. And fL would not mean full or overload, because then it would say oL (OverLoad).

I advise you call and ask the company.
U.S.A.:1-800-253-1301.
Canada:1-800-807-6777.

There is a backup valve or flap in the drain assembly that seems to sometimes cause problems with the FL error code. Remove this piece to see if it helps.



If this is a new installation - check that the hoses arent reversed (cold on hot and hot on cold). This will also cause the FL error.

FL fault code means door failed to lock. Could be misalignment between the lid and the locking mechanism. Try the service mode and see if you can get the door to lock. Otherwise you may need to replace the lock itself.
