Question about Whirlpool Duet GHW9150P Front Load Washer
What to do? Display is flashing F, and the H and will not continue the cycle. How do I fix?
First and foremost, with any error code with these model washers, some of them can be erroneous. Try unplugging the washer for AT LEAST 30 minutes in an attempt to reset the CCU. Sometimes this is all that is required to correct momentary glitches. If the error code returns, then you know you have a problem. "FH" is usually a water inlet error, but it can also have many causes. The following link explains:
This is one of the more involved error codes to try to resolve because of the posible causes. I suggest you start with the simple things first. Make sure the water inlet hoses are unclogged and water flows freely through them. You can determine this by turning off the water and removing each hose from the back of the washer. Place them in a bucket or position the washer where you can place them inside the wash tub and turn the water back on. Both hoses should have free unobstructed water flow. It is common for the sediment screens at the end of the hoses to become clogged if you live in an area the uses well water, or if you have hard water.
Next, Make sure you don't have a siphoning problem. This is causes by placing the drain hose too far down in the standpipe. This creates a vacuum and the washer constantly drains as it tries to fill. If you pull up on the drain hose and hear a sucking noise, you have the drain line positioned too far in the standpipe. You need to keep an air gap in order to allow proper drainage.
Then, check the drain pump for obstructions. There is a clean out reservoir that you can remove the access the pump interior. Use the instructions I provide to perform these steps.
These are the simple items that you can easily rule out, first. Follow the remaining tips I provided you and if you still have questions, let me know before rating the solution. I hope this helps you.
