Take the lid off attached to the inlet valve to the dispenserr you will see a little white mechanisim in line with them. this is called your flowmeter take it off and blow through it is should sound like a cazoo. put it back on and try to do a wash cycle. if this doesn't help you need a new flowmeter. also if you take the kick panel off you will find the tech sheet to help you diagnose this problem. Always first check your hoses if you have flood hoses get rid of them next get a bucket and see if water is comeing out of the hoses next check you inlet valve screens see if there is sand in them if there is clean them.

The FH error code on your Kenmore Elite washing machine is an indicator that there is a problem with incoming water. When there is little water coming into the machine, the FH code will appear and the washer will stop. There are a couple of common problems you can check while you are resetting the FH error code. You will need to remove the power supply to the washer to reset the code.

  • 1 Look for the "Pause/Cancel" button on the washer control panel. The button will be below the digital time clock and to the lower right of the wash cycle selector.

  • 2
    Press the "Pause/Cancel" button twice to cancel the wash cycle. Unplug the Kenmore Elite washer from the wall outlet.



  • 3 Check for kinks in the water supply hose while the washer does not have power. Turn off the water supply spigots and remove the hoses from the back of the washer. Check the port screens at the hose connections for sediment buildup and clean as necessary.

  • 4
    Connect the water supply hoses back to the washer and turn on the water spigots. Plug the washer cord back into the wall outlet.

  • 5
    Select the wash cycle and press the "Start" button.

    Whin washing 30 min left and it stops and flashes FH


    First try turning off the machine for 30 minutes. Then check your inlet valve. Shut off valve, switch off machine & see if the water comes full flow. Check the filters on the machine inlet entry, they could be blocked, clean out.

    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 this washer.

    Inlet valves can be purchased thru the net and fitted by you easily.

    During a normal wash cycle, the error code FH occurs. The owners manual says inlet problem. All water pressure is good and inlet screens are clear. Drain function appears to work well. Repair guy came...


    If the flow meter does not register 10 and 1/2 gallons of water in 8 minutes the FH code appears.
    Could be a bad flow meter, sensor, wiring harness is loose or a bad CCU Central Control Unit.
    At the RINSE cycle if water enters the machine you must time the water fill for 8 minutes or less.
    If water does not enter the machine suspect the CCU as bad.

    How do you fix a FH code ( water inlet problem) on a Kenmore Elite HE3t front load washer


    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 a1 or 2 minutes then the most likely cause will be the water valve or flow meter.

    If the error doesn't appear foe 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.

    After 27 minutes into wash get an FH error


    The FH code on the Whirlpool Duet washers indicates that the unit is not detecting water fill at the flowmeter. The flowmeter is sits right in front of the water inlet valve and is attached via a hose and is off to the left of the central control unit (ccu). If the washer seems to be filling alright, check out the wiring from the flowmeter to the control unit. Make sure all connections are clean and tight. These connections have been known to jiggle loose and cause this code. Hope this helped and best wishes.

    F H code during cycle, will not complete cycle


    The following link explains the "FH" error code:

    http://www.fixya.com/support/r615354-fh_error_code_whirlpool_duet_kenmore

    This is one of the more involved error codes to try to resolve, because it can have various causes. The first thing to try before troubleshooting is to unplug the washer for AT LEAST 30 minutes in an attempt to reset the Central Control Unit (CCU). Sometimes this is all that it takes to correct momentary glitches. If the error code reappears, I suggest you begin with the easy items that you can eliminate first. Double check your fill hoses and water source, followed by verifying your drainage to ensure you don't have a siphoning problem and checking your drain pump for clogs.

    If you still have questions, or require additional assistance, please let me know before you rate the solution. I hope this helps you.
