You are going to have to replace the control board.

This is relatively simple. The letter J just means the memory in the control board is corrupt.

SOURCE: Letter "H" then "F" error. Our Kenmore 110 45081 washer

FH error indicates that either you have no water coming into the washer, or very little water. Since you can see it filling, the error indicates low flow. A flow meter
in the unit detects if 10.5 gallons fills the tub within 8 minutes; yours must not be. This will turn off the inlet valves and the error code will be displayed. Check the following:

- Make sure you don't have a siphoning problem. This occurs when there is no air gap for the drain line at the standpipe. The standpipe is the drain pipe at the wall where the washer drain line is placed. With no air gap, a vacuum is created, and water will begin to drain from the wash tub prematurely. To prevent this from occurring, follow this advice:

•The standpipe should be 2 inches in diameter to allow a sufficient air gap between the top of the standpipe and the drain hose.
•The standpipe should be a minimum of 34" from the floor, and should not exceed 72 inches in height.
•DO NOT seal the top of the standpipe. Many consumers seal the standpipe in the belief that this will prevent overflows, or get rid of drain odors. This often creates more problems than solutions.
•DO NOT place the drain hose too far down into the pipe. Water stays in the drain trap area of the standpipe. If the end of the drain hose rests in this area, no air gap is created, and this can also cause siphoning. 4 to 6 inches is sufficient.
•The drain hose length must not exceed 10 feet in length. Excessive drain hose length can cause drain problems and back wash.
- Verify Drain Pump operation. Unplug the washer and take the lower panel under the door off by removing the three screws under the bottom edge. With the screws removed, the panel should drop down then come off. If it sticks, tap either side and it should come free. The pump is located directly under the wash tub in the front of the washer. Verify the electrical connections are good and that the pump is running. Open the pump access and remove, once you have all the water drained. Check the drain pump for foreign objects and debris. Check the pump impeller and make sure there's nothing caught in it. Items as small as toothpicks or cotton swabs have been known to stop this pump from working.


- Verify Flow meter operation and that the Pressure Switch hoses are intact and connected properly. Remove the three screws in the top panel along the back of the washer. With the screws removed, the panel should slide back, then, lift off. The flowmeter will be located on the left-hand side of the washer (facing from the front) between the inlet valve and dispenser. It's a small white plastic device with hoses attached. The pressure switch is located on the right-hand side of the washer in the rear. It is a round plastic device with electrical connections and a hose attached. There should be a tech sheet directly behind the panel or attached to one of the interior cabinet walls. Please refer to this sheet to learn how to perform diagnostics, how to locate the components mentioned, and the specific measurements required in determining if the components are good or bad.


"F/H" indicates that either you have no water coming into the washer, or very little water.

If you have NO water coming into the wash tub after 30 seconds the error code is displayed. Check the following:

- Inlet water valve may be clogged. Clean inlet screens if necessary.
- Make sure water taps are on.
- Check inlet hoses for kinks or clogs.

If you HAVE water filling the wash tub, and after 8 minutes, 10.5 gallons of water has been detected by the flowmeter, but there has not been a detected a Pressure Switch trip, the inlet valves are turned off and the error code is displayed. Check the following:

- Make sure you don't have a siphoning problem. Click the following link for instructions: http://www.fixya.com/support/r587481-prevent_washer_siphoning
- Verify Drain Pump operation.
- Verify Flowmeter operation.
- Verify the Pressure Switch hoses are intact and connected properly.

To access the Drain Pump - UNPLUG the washer and take the lower panel under the door off by removing the three screws under the bottom edge. HINT: Propping the front feet of the washer up can make access much easier. I use a couple small blocks of wood. With the screws removed, the panel should drop down then come off. If it sticks, tap either side and it should come free. The pump is located directly under the wash tub in the front of the washer. Verify the electrical connections are good and that the pump is running. If not, click on the following link to check the pump for obstructions:

To access the Flowmeter and Pressure Switch – remove the three screws in the top panel along the back of the washer. With the screws removed, the panel should slide back, then, lift off. The flowmeter will be located on the left-hand side of the washer (facing from the front) between the inlet valve and dispenser. It’s a small white plastic device with hoses attached. The pressure switch is located on the right-hand side of the washer in the rear. It is a round plastic device with electrical connections and a hose attached.

Hi

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...

SOURCE: The washing machine is currently

F21 is a Long Drain error. If the drain time exceeds 8 minutes this error code will be displayed.

  1. First, attempt to unplug the washer for at LEAST 30 minutes to reset the Central Control Unit (CCU). Sometimes this is all that is required to correct momentary glitches with the unit. If the error code returns, proceed to step 2.
  2. Check the drain hose to make sure it is not kinked or clogged.
  3. Check the pump strainer. There are three screws at the very bottom of washer. You will need and extension and a star tip. I used a 9/32 socket to remove them. The front cover slides right off. Facing you is the pump strainer. Big white piece of plastic right in the middle. Turn the large white knob counter-clockwise to remove it and clean. It is the only thing you can unscrew by hand. Open it and clean anything you find out.

There is an EE code. The machine just beeps.


EE
Remove your washer from the power source if you see an "EE" error code, where the first E is missing the top part of the letter. Your washing machine has a serious malfunction, and you must contact a technician.

A bit odd that as error code EE does not exist for washing machines, it's a refrigeration error code. Unless of course part of the display (led) has been damaged and the code isn't displayed properly.

Hope helps.

I insert my memory card into the drive and it wont show in computer what do i do


One reason your external drive may not be showing up in explorer could be an issue with assigning the drive letter to the device. This normally happens when the device attempts to assign itself a drive letter that is already taken by another drive or a network mapping. Here is how you can quickly test if this is your issue:
WARNING: Double check the drive you are selecting before changing your drive letter. Accidently changing the drive letter of the wrong drive, such as the one holding you OS can cause your computer to stop booting.
1. With the device connected right click your “My Computer” icon.
2. From the menu select “Manage” which will load the computer management window.
3. Inside the computer management window select “Disk Management” from the left side of the screen under “Storage”.
4. After all your devices are scanned and loaded into the right side of the screen you will see the various drives and partitions connect to your computer.
5. Located the device you are having an issue with in the low section of the right screen panel and check to see if a drive letter is assigned to it. If you are unsure of what it should look like with a drive letter assigned observe your “Disk 0” device which normally is connected to the “C:” Drive letter.
6. Assuming there is no drive letter assigned to your problem drive, or the drive letter is already taken you can simply right click on the partition and select “Change Drive Letter and Paths”. The partition will be the part which lists the file system type and the size.
7. Once in the “Change Drive Letter and Paths” window click the “Add” button and then select a drive letter that is not in use and click “OK”.
8. After you have clicked OK/YES to all the dialog boxes your drive’s partition should now have a drive letter that you can access via explorer.
