The "FL" error code is indicating an overfill condition which is most likely due to the unit not draining properly or the pressure switch did not reset after the water was pumped out.

What dose a FL code mean on whirlpool cabrio platinum


I will try and help for some reason Whirlpool likes to flip letters around which differ from the service manual FL would be an LF long fill or is it a F1 the model doesn't show in the Whirlpool data base nor parts suppliers I suspect wtw6600sb1 does the machine from initial start fill correctly then wash if so we can eliminate the pressure switch and hose after wash cycle unit should drain then fill with rinse water if the inlet valve does not let water into the machine to satisfy the pressure switch the control times out and flashes a long fill code this unit has a log valve system possible you have a bad inlet valve on the bank of valve or a bad control not outputing voltage to the valve, hope this points you in the right direction

WHAT DOES FL MEAN AND HOW DO I FIX MY WASHER WHEN


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.

Flashing FL


Hi

If you have error code FL it means flood condition i.e. 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.

If its LF which means long fill i.e. when the water fill time exceeds ten minutes, the water valves are turned off and LF is flashed. Press STOP/CANCEL to clear the display.

Please do rate the solution and revert for further assistance.

Thanks
