On most Whirlpool Duet models, you can remove the lower front cover of the washer by removing three torx head screws from the lower lip. Look on the right hand wall, inside the washer. You should find, sealed in plastic, a Diagnostic Guide. It will say do not remove or destroy, for service technician use only. Well guess what, with just a little know how and this guide, you can troubleshoot and repair a lot of your problems. It is not the "owners manual" but has much more info when it comes to troubleshooting or repair. If you need parts, I often use www.repairclinic.com to get appliance parts cheap. It is easy to use. Hope this helps.

Error code FH appears when No water is detected entering machine or Pressure switch trip is not detected. If after 30 seconds the control does not detect water entering machine and then valves will be turned off and the error code will be displayed.
Press PAUSE/CANCEL twice to clear the display. If there is no water entering the unit then make sure that the inlet valves are working fine. You may need to check the continuity at the inlet valves. If the valves are fine then check whether inlet water hose, it may be plugged. Also check for inlet water screen at the valve. However, if the water is entering into the washer then the Drain pump might not be working. Also inspect the Pressure Switch hose whether it is in good condition and properly connected to Tub and Pressure switch. Also check hoses for leak and inspect the flow meter. Hope this helps...
