SOURCE: 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.

This is likely a lid switch problem. They tend to get weak and work sometimes and sometimes not. When it stalls like that try pushing down on lid and see if it kicks in. If so you need to replace the lid switch

If you lay the drain hose down into a bucket does water come out fairly quickly?
If so then it is not a blockage
You may have a coin or other small object in the pump which stops the impeller turning so no pumping action
Only solution is to check if the pump is free to turn either via the filter opening or taking the back panel off (Remove power before doing so ) and turning the pump by hand (there will be a fan blade on the end which is connected directly to the impeller.
If that will not turn very easily then you need to take off the hoses and check what is happening with the pump unit

Most of these spin related problems are attributed to a lid switch malfunction. A washer that fills and doesn't do anything, or stops right after the wash cycle and then does not advance to the rinse cycle and drain is commonly caused by a lid switch. The lid switch is usually mounted under the washer top casing, on the right hand side on most top load models. It is activated by a plastic piece on the lid (called a "Lid Strike") through a small hole on the rim of the wash tub opening. In many cases the lid strike breaks off the lid, or the lid switch becomes loose and no longer makes contact. Inspect the lid to make sure the lid strike is still intact, and then inspect the mounting screws (adjacent to the small opening on the wash tub rim) and make sure they are snug. If you determine the switch to be defective, the following link explains how to replace one:
If the switch requires replacement, a new one can be purchased on line at searspartsdirect.com, pcappliancerepair.com, repairclinic.com, appliancepartspros.com. Just use your model number as your search criteria. All these sites offer competitive pricing, so shop all them for the best price.
