Your drain is clogged, not the one in the wall where the drain hose goes, but the internal drain, you have to use a 7mm quarter inch drive socket and a 2 inch or longer extension. There are three screws at the very bottom of the washer which must be removed. When standing you cannot see these screws, you have to lay down and look under the washer, between the feet of the washer to find them. Once the bottom cover is removed there is a "cylindrical box" thing with a front cover, the front covers is simply screwed into the cylindrical box housing, unscrew it. Warning, there is a lot of water in here so don't be sitting when you remove it. When you get it open you will discover that this is the internal filter, you'll find small socks and coins and god knows what else in here. Now follow the drain line out and feel it from the outside by pinching it to see if it is clear, if it is clear it should compress quite easily if it is clogged remove it and **** it out with a wire hanger. Reassembly is the opposite of disassembly. This should fix you error message. And buy the way if you remove the top cover there is a "Technicians Manual" stored inside the washer under the top cover that describes some of this procedure and defines all of the error codes.

Probably too late, but here it goes:
FH means some cicle is taking too long time.
Replace the inlet electrical valve. It probably wont open enough and the water flow is not enough to fill to level in time. This should cost you 10€ and is easily done by anyone.
Just remove the top of the machine (two bolts on the rear and slide to the back), disconnect the valve (electrical and water input and output), push the lockers and twist the valve free.

If after 30 seconds the control does not detect water entering
machine, the valves will be turned off and the error code will be
displayed. OR If the control has turned the water valves on and after
8 minutes the flow sensor has detected 10.5 gallons of water passing
through it, but has not detected the pressure switch trip, the valves will
be turned off and the error code will flash.
Press PAUSE/CANCEL twice to clear the display.
check the fill hose screens or you my have to repalce water valve make sure water is turned on....

You can try this:
First check your washer plug to see if the connections are tightly screwed. Next check your filter if you haven't for long.
Remove the 3 screws at the bottom of the front panel under the washer door. Your filter door will be light brown. If you find a hose there it is to drain out excess water (water that could not be drained by your pump) After you hv drained unscrew the cap and remove all the junk inside. Have a large plastic bag to catch junk and water. Refit carefully after cleaning out. If not solved, something shd be blocking your pump, check this out
