The FX-loop allows you to change the signal coming from the pre-amp before sending it to the power amp (which amplifies it).

The very watered down version- it allows you to use chorus and flang and such (effects that come after distortion.) and use the distortion channel on your amp.

If there's a dial on the FX-loop it only allows you to change how much you mix the altered signal in the original signal. But if you don't have any pedals in the loop the only thing it will do is reduce the volume.
On my Marshalls you have to leave it at 0 if you don't use any effects in the loop.
