Pump Problem with Calypso. I was getting the FL code on my washer so having read all the suggestions on the internet I removed the pump assembly and checked for obstructions, nada. Impeller is...


FL 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.

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.

I have a whrilpool calypso washer flashing the fl code


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.

FL showes up and when I unplug the unit and wait and plug the unit back in the same thing FL and the beeping still come back. Where is the fill plug switch?


FL is a flooded machine most likely due to a bad drain pump. See my solution under this web sites solved problem section for the question "Washer displays FL code." My solution is dated 9-29-2007 and tells where to purchase pump and motor, now a one piece unit, and how to remove and replace. Good Luck
