Question about Whirlpool Washing Machines

1 Answer

Whirlpool Clothes Washer Front Loading Model AWD(or is it AW0?)9663. Sometimes at start up things go to plan then fault FH lights up followed by "Water tap closed". Resetting the machine often solves this problem! Water temp set to only 30Degrees C and water pressures known to be on the low side. Have checked filters and pipes from solenoids all OK and kink free. Have found an adjustment lever on top of the "detergent box" with graduated notches and set to about mid position. What does this do.? If its to contriol water flow/ quantity which way is it adjusted? Also found a "ridgid plastic tube" at the cold water inlet to the detergent box, will removing this increase water inlet? Thanks and regards Alan Llewellyn

Good Morning

Problem fixed by removing the "restrictor" rubber washer on the cold water supply solenoid, this allows more water to flow.
Three wash runs so far with no problems.
The notched lever is for water direction control into the soap dispenser!

My Whirlpool Duet ht Washer starts washing fine, it drains then it starts flashing FH and wont take in water for the rinse cycle. It does this for every cycle, it will wash fine but after it drains and is...

The first thing I would check is shut off the cold water valve at the wall and remove the hose at the washer.carefully pry out the little screen in the inlet and clean well,reconnect hose and turn water back on FH is a water inlet issue I am hoping that what is happening is that when the washer starts its wash cycle it is probably filling with warm (hot) and cold water at the same time even though it might be mostly hot,but when it comes time to rinse (cold water ) there is not enough to make the computer happy and you get your FH error.. Hope this Helps,,If not your probley looking at a new fill valve assy

FH error because I had the water turned off

The FH code means that the unit isn't detecting water at the flow meter. The flow meter sits just in front of the inlet valve and is attached via a hose, and off to the left the CCU. Check the wiring from the flow meter to the control unit and make sure all connections are tight. Also, press and hold the "end of cycle" button for a minimum of three seconds. Hope this helped and best wishes.

Will not rinse and spin

The following link explains the "FH" error code:

Unfortunately, this is a fault code that can have multiple causes. I would recommend you start by UNPLUGGING the unit for at least 30 minutes in an attempt to reset the Central Control Unit (CCU). This is the main computer for your washer. Sometimes these error code can be erroneous and resetting the CCU in this manner can correct the problem. If the error code repappears following a reset, then you have a legitimate problem.

If the error code persists, start by verifying the simple things you can eliminate easily. Check to make sure your taps are turned on and the hoses are not kinked or clogged. Make sure the sediment screens on the water inlet valve are not clogged and restricting water flow. The screens can be checked by turning off the water and removing the hoses. The inlet screens are inside the valve connectors on the back of the washer. Check for a siphoning condition, followed by checking the drain pump reservior. You can check these items in any order you like.

Read through the link and let me know if you have questions. I hope this helps you.

I get a F and H code. What does that mean?

Please click on the following link for a detailed explanation of the "FH" error code.

It is rather involved, but it's easier to rule out the simple things first. Check for a siphoning issue, first, followed by the dran pump. In most cases this is a simple problem. If the problem goes beyond that, please let me know and I will give you further advice if needed. I hope this helps you.
