Question about Whirlpool Duet GHW9150P Front Load Washer
It's because of the flow meter. This is a reed device that sits in line with the water inlet valve and monitors the water coming into the machine. Things to check; make sure both water valves are on and that the inlet valve screens are clean. (You get to them by removing the hoses to the washer). The drain pump filter is clean. (Remove the bottom panel and unscrew the pump filter and clean out). The inlet valves are actually working. That the drain hose is not too far down the standpipe causing a siphon. All the harness connecting to the inlet valves, pressure switch, drain pump, flow meter and main control are seated properly. You will have to remove the top to get a look at these. Three screws on the top backside and it slides of toward the back. If all these things check out. Then I would suspect the flow meter itself.

First try turning off the machine for 30 minutes. Still FH? Next 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.
