Question about Kenmore Elite 45986 Front Load Washer
Display is flashing F then H. Won't complete wash cycle.
Check your filters first to clean out. See that the drain hose is not kinked and that there is no siphon problem. If the error still returns after checking the above, the next thing to check is the flow meter itself. This sits right in line with the water inlet valves. It's just a reed valve that measures the amount of water entering the washer and monitors the pressure switch.
You can access it by removing the top and it will be on the left side in line with the inlet valve. If the problem still persists you have to change your flow meter and pressure switch, as a last resort.

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 hoses as they might 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...
