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.

    front loading washing machine. About every 2 minutes the cycle stops
    and flashes an "f" then an "h" on the display over and over again. **



    That error code can be the result of no water detected entering machine
    after 30 seconds or pressure switch (water level control) activation
    not detected after 8 minutes of filling.



    If there is no water in the machine at the time, make sure that both
    water taps are turned on, check for kinked fill hoses or plugged
    sediment screens in them and verify the water fill valve operation.

    Press PAUSE/CANCEL twice to clear the display.

    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

    Check inlet valve operation

    If there is water in the unit:

    Check Drain pump operation

    Pressure Switch Hose is in good condition and properly connected to Tub and Pressure switch

    Check there is not a siphon problem

    Check wire harness connections to:Inlet Valves, Pressure Switch, Drain Pump, Flow Meter, and Central Control Unit (CCU)

    Check all hoses for possible leaks

    Check pressure switch operation

    Check flow meter operation

    Check CCU operation

It has stopped washing and is flashing FH what is the problem and what should I do ??????


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.

Washer flashing FH, first F, then H


"FH" (Water Inlet Problem-no water or insufficient water
supply)
Select PAUSE/OFF twice to cancel the cycle. Unplug washer
or disconnect power.
Check the following:
Are water faucets completely turned on?
Are screens at inlet hose connection to washer clogged?
Are water inlet hoses kinked?
Are water inlet hoses frozen?

Also check the pressure hose for cracks or worn through spots, and pressure switch.

My Whirlpool Duet ht Washer starts washing fine, it drains then it starts flashing FH and wont take in water for the rinse cycle. It does this for every cycle, it will wash fine but after it drains and is...


The first thing I would check is shut off the cold water valve at the wall and remove the hose at the washer.carefully pry out the little screen in the inlet and clean well,reconnect hose and turn water back on FH is a water inlet issue I am hoping that what is happening is that when the washer starts its wash cycle it is probably filling with warm (hot) and cold water at the same time even though it might be mostly hot,but when it comes time to rinse (cold water ) there is not enough to make the computer happy and you get your FH error.. Hope this Helps,,If not your probley looking at a new fill valve assy

Whirlpool awm 8125/3 fault code FH


Probably too late, but here it goes:
FH means some cicle is taking too long time.
Replace the inlet electrical valve. It probably wont open enough and the water flow is not enough to fill to level in time. This should cost you 10€ and is easily done by anyone.
Just remove the top of the machine (two bolts on the rear and slide to the back), disconnect the valve (electrical and water input and output), push the lockers and twist the valve free.

The following link explains the "FH" error:

http://www.fixya.com/support/r615354-fh_error_code_whirlpool_duet_kenmore

This can be a rather tough one to figure out, even with the error code explanation. I would recommend unplugging the washer for AT LEAST 30 minutes first. This will reset the Central Control Unit (CCU). In many cases this is all that is required to correct momentary glitches with the unit. If the error code reappears, check your washer installation to rule out the easiest possiblities, first. This means checking to ensure you don't have a siphoning condition, checking your drain lines and checking to ensure your fill hoses aren't kinked or clogged. Read through the link thoroughly and let me know if you have questions. I hope this helps you.
