Question about Kenmore Elite 45986 Front Load Washer

1 Answer

I have a Kenmore Elite HE 3t washer:problem is it fills with water and then I get a flashing FH or HF code. According to the manual that came with the washer in the trouble shooting section for a "FH" code (Water inlet problem- no water or insufficient water supply). The washer fills with water no problem there as I found out by pressing the cancell button twice. BIG MISTAKE!!! I had an ocean all over the washroom, running down the hall and halfway into the kitchen. Well, at least the floors got washed anyway.

This indicates a water problem. Make sure you have both hot and cold water turned on and running to the machine. If pressure is to low on either hot or cold you will also get this reading

The codes FH appear when the washer is in the RINSE cycle. Manual says lack of water. I have removed and cleaned water lines and made certain water is fine. still continues to beep. This is only during...


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...

Kenmore elite HE3t when the weather gets extremly cold outsude we always get the "HF" code


The "FH" error is a No Water Detect error. This is an indication that you have either no water, or little water coming into the washer. The following link explains:

http://www.fixya.com/support/r3608753-fh_error_code

I would suspect that if the error only occurs when it is very cold outside, that you may have some restrictions in the water lines coming to the tap to your washer. You may also turn the water off and remove the fill hoses to check for obstructions in the sediment screens.

Read through the link provided and let me know if you still require assistance. I hope this helps you.

Kenmore elite he3 flashing FH


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.

What does a flashing code HF mean? This is a kenmore elite HE3t washer. thanks


That is the code for a water inlet issue.  Meaning "no or insufficient water supply" according to the manual. It says to hit PAUSE/CANCEL twice to cancel cycle. Then unplug unit and check for:
Are faucets completely turned on? Are screens at the inlet hose connection to washer clogged? Are inlet hoses kinked? And last...Are inlet hoses frozen? After checking all those it says to plug back in, re-select cycle and press START. If problem still comes up call for service. I remember on another site someone had the same code coming up, all the inlet suggestions checked out OK and they had to call for service as it was something in the control panel/computer of the unit.
Hope your issue is something simple as suggested by the manual. Take care ; )

HF signal code


Check your exit hose spigot, it may be clogged. This is if your filter is all clean. There should be air for passage in the standpipe behind. Your hose should not fit airtight into the standpipe and neither too deep into it. Snaking out your standpipe would be good too. Height of exit hose should be approx 3 feet from ground level.

Rate me pl.....if helped.
