Question about Hotpoint WMA31 Front Load Washer
Clothes are washed ,but not rinsed .have to spin and rinse again.
The error FH will stem from the drain pump operation and sometimes from the flow meter itself. The first thing to check is to drop the bottom panel and make sure the drain filter is clean. It sits right in front and just unscrews. Make sure to have enough towels on hand to soak up the water that is left in the tub. After you have checked this make sure both water valves are turned on, clear the error by pressing pause/cancel twice. Check to make sure the drain hose is not kinked and that there is no siphon problem.(Check your pump too now that you've opened up) If the error still returns after checking the above, the next thing to suspect is the flow meter itself. This sits right in line with the water inlet valves. It's just a reed valve that measures the amount of water entering the washer and monitors the pressure switch. You can access it by removing the top and it will be on the left side in line with the inlet valve. Look for holes in this tube, change if any.
