My machine won't meter water into machine
When doing inside jobs on the machine see that the power line is off the wall mains. Also note which line goes where before dismantling it.
First try turning off the machine for 30 minutes. Disconnect the pipes at the back top of machine, to see if water comes full flow from your water supply. Check the fine filters on the machine inlet entry, they could be blocked, clean out with old tooth brush. Some filters are removable.
The FH indicates a fill failure and this is usually caused by a bad water valve, flow meter or pressure switch.
One key to determining the cause of the FH error is how fast the error comes up in a cycle. If the error appears within 1 or 2 minutes then the most likely cause will be the water valve or flow meter.
If the error doesn't appear for several minutes then the pressure switch can be the source of the problem.
Both water valves must be turned on and working. Even if a cold wash is selected at some point during the fill the hot water valve will be energized and if there is no water then the FH error will show up. Sometimes a consumer will turn the hot water valve off to save energy but you can't turn one valve off on some washers.
Inlet valves can be purchased thru the net and fitted by you easily.
Water into machines are not 'metered', it is measured by your flow meter inside the machine. A line going up from your outlet area to your panel above to activate a switch, according to water pressure.
