Ok do you have flood stop hoses on your machine. if you do take them off and get a bucket turn the hoses back on and fill the bucket if no water comes out of 1 of the hoses your problem is the hose. the error fh means fill hose.

SOURCE: Iget a f-11 trouble code on my kenmore elite he4t washer.

REplace your MCU. The MCU is the Drive Motor Control board and is located in the rear of the washer adjacent to the Drive Motor on the left-hand side (facing from the rear with the back panel removed). The wiring harness can also cause the error, but it is not as common a problem. Go onto kenmore.com and find your right washing machine and replace the part yourself. First try and take the wiring harness off and then reconnect it and see if the error code goes away if it doesnt then replace the part. Please Rate. Thank you

The motor controller board is likely bad.

Stop frequently on spin and rinse cycle F6 code


I have a Kenmore Elite he4t front load washer that was working fine and then we moved and now it stops washing midstream and flashes an F and a H. I have to pause and restart then it will stop washing again after a few minutes and flash the same codes again. I reset again and then it stops with 1 minute left and will not drain.

Kenmore HE4t washer has an F06 code


"F06" is a motor speed error code. This means there is a problem with either the drive motor, motor control unit (MCU), or interconnecting wiring. The following link explains:

http://www.fixya.com/support/r714929-f06_error_whirlpool_duet_kenmore_elite

I would begin by attempting to reset the Central Control Unit (CCU). This is the main computer for the washer. Sometimes these error codes can be erroneous. If you unplug the washer for at least 30 minutes, this will reset the CCU. Often, this is all that is required to correct momentary glitches. If the error code reappears following a CCU reset, then you have a legitimate problem.

If resetting the CCU doesn't work, verify all your connector plugs on the drive motor and MCU by unplugging and replugging each one (one at a time). Sometimes these connector plugs can vibrate loose.

If these preliminary steps don't work, follow the advice in the link provided. If you have any questions please let me know. I hope this helps you.

Getting fault code f14?


F14 = EEPROM Error

The Central Control Unit (CCU) receives it's data from an EEPROM on board the CCU.
If there is an error reading this data, it will cause this error.

A power glitch may cause this error. Try unplugging the Unit for two minutes to see if that fixes the error.
Check CCU

So its likely you'll need a new CCU board. Check your owners manual, some models have up to a 5 yr. parts warranty on that CCU.
