My Washer Model #WFW92HEFW0 keeps giving me the Lo FL error. The water switch was turned off because I was away. The machine started beeping and I turned the water on but the code will not clear and the machine will not fill.

Lo FL Error Code

The Lo FL error code can be reset by entering diagnostic mode and clearing the error code.

NO WATER DETECTED ENTERING WASHER OR WATER LEVEL SENSOR TRIP NOT DETECTED (F8E1 saved The washer does not detect water input after 12 minutes of filling. The washer will drain for 8 minutes. Allow the draining error code) process to finish. The error can be cleared when the 8 minute draining process has completed. If not follow the directions below.

1. Be sure the washer is in standby mode (plugged in with all indicators off). 2. After initial power is applied, wait 30 seconds before activating Service Diagnostic mode. 3. Select any three (3) buttons (except POWER) and follow the steps below, using the same buttons. Remember the buttons and the order that the buttons were pressed. Within 8 seconds, • Press and Release the 1st selected button, • Press and Release the 2nd selected button, • Press and Release the 3rd selected button; • Repeat this 3 button sequence 2 more times. 4. If the Service Diagnostic mode has been entered successfully, all indicators on the console are illuminated for 5 seconds with “888” showing in the Estimated Time Remaining (Whirlpool) or Estimated Cycle Time (Maytag) seven-segment display. If there are no saved fault codes, all indicators on the console will momentarily turn off, and then only the seven-segment display will come back on and display “888”. NOTE: The Service Diagnostic mode will time out after 10 minutes of user inactivity, or shut down if AC power is removed.

Once you have entered diagnostic mode and the error code is showing in the display press and hold down the 3rd button you used to enter diagnostic mode for 5 seconds and that will clear the error. Once the error is cleared unplug the machine for 5 minutes, plug it back up and it should be reset.

If not then then either the water inlet valve , pressure switch or main board has failed. If you would like the diagnostic procedures to figure out which is the case ask a technician in live chat.
