It appears your controller has failed in this instance.

For replacement parts - head on over to PartSelect.com or RepairClinic.com and enter in your full model number for a full parts listing.
I recommend both sites because ...


FixYa has no affiliation with either site - I have been using and recommending them for years - trouble free.

PartSelect has a great schematic database for locating the part on your unit and great "testimonials" for each part that often times includes HOW-TO information.
RepairClinic has pictures of each part they sell and also a great how-to and troubleshooting for basic repairs.


If your unit has never been serviced - there should still be an original service manual enclosed in plastic taped to the inside of the shell.
In the service manual are Error codes, maintenance procedures, and troubleshooting steps you can follow.


Anything too complicated or beyond your scope should be handled by a professional.

If you think you want to tackle the repair - and have gotten stuck on a step - reply to your question and I will be glad to help you out.

What does LF mean on the display


"LF" means Low Flow, referring to the incoming water flow to your washing machine. Either you have low water pressure, or the water valve(s) at the wall aren't fully open, or (more likely) one of the water hoses are kinked or perhaps even defective. You should use only normal washing machine hoses (the cheap ones) - seems the smart ones (flood-sensing type) may be problematic with some washing machines. Hope this helps!

My whirlpool washing machine wont stop filling with water after the wash cycle


your post is vauge

does it over flow
you mean it wont stop the rinse cycle


did you check it for a reset
do a factory reset

the machine will fill with water until the flow sensor and level has filled

so check and clean the machine

i find a couple of dishwasher cleaner tabs thru it first will clean all the flows and pipes and use a 60 deg long wash for whites
i think all the electro is aok so must be dirt

H20 is showing on the display screen of my hotpoint washing machine. I'm aware this means water but I'm wondering why this is displayed?


Possible that there is no INLET pressure or water flow to the machine, check the inlet filter and valve, check for good flow to the valve if the hose is disconnected. If not it needs to be checked if the panel board is showing error due to memory fault..

I have a Maytag front loader Mod. MFW9700SQ1 - I get an error code of H and then F flashing. The machine stops washing. What could be the problem?


Hi

Error HF means that a water inlet problem has occurred. 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 the machine is not filling then check whether both valves at water source are turned ON and inlet hose are not plugged. If the machine is filling fine then chec the pressure switch hose and the drain hose for siphoning (also make sure water is not flowing back to the machine from drain hose). Check wire harness connections to: Inlet Valves, Pressure Switch, Drain Pump, Flow Meter, and Central Control Unit (CCU). Hope this helps... Please post back if you need more information.

Hi


Thanks for using FixYa. Error code F/H means no water was detected entering machine or Pressure switch trip 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. It can also happen if the control has turned the water valves on and after 8 minutes the flow meter has detected 10.5 gallons of water passing through it, but has not detected the pressure switch trip, the valves will be turned off and the error code will flash. You’ll need to Press PAUSE/CANCEL twice to clear the display and then check:

• If there is no water in the unit:
• Make sure that both valves at the water source(s) are turned on all the way.
• Check for plugged or kinked inlet hoses or plugged screens in the inlet valves
• Verify inlet valve operation
• If there is water in the unit:
• Verify Drain pump operation
• Pressure Switch Hose is in good condition and properly connected to Tub and
Pressure switch
• Verify there is not a siphon problem
• Verify wire harness connections to; Inlet Valves, Pressure Switch, Drain Pump,
Flow Meter and Central Control Unit (CCU)
• Check all hoses for possible leaks
• Verify pressure switch operation
• Verify flow meter operation
• Verify CCU operation


Please do rate the solution if the issue is resolved or else revert for further assistance.


Thanks

What does it mean when the machine stops mid cycle and H and then F displays in the digital window?


I think that means NO, Hot water Flow (HF)
Try this Hold the "Start" button IN while you Switch ON.
Also check this out pull the water lines filters to check the screens, and the cold water line for crud in it

My whirpool aw614 displays FH error display which suggest water inlet probs, clean filters a;though they are spotless, still get same prob, on some programs it will work until it comes to rinse, where it...


Suspect low water flow rate ., check flow rate from main sink tap , when turned on full this should be pretty fierce. Put machine on normal cool wash , when it is taking in cold water through the soap drawer , pull out the drawer a little , the water flow rate should be allmost the same as the tap , if not investigate , fill pipes at rear etc..
