I would put in some bleach and clothes that can handle it without damage and run a wash cycle. Leave the door open when you are done using the machine, or at least un-latched. There are commercial products, but bleach will do the same thing. You have stuff growing on the gizzards inside the drum, and bleach will likely kill them. They like dark & humid places.. guess what... that's your washer with the door kept latched.
The nF error means that the washer isn't filling properly. Make sure that both the hot and cold water inlets are getting water flow. (You can get all cold water washes by connecting the hot to a second cold water line.) Make sure that you have opened the shut-off valves for both inlets to the washing machine. Check that there is sufficient water pressure on both inlets. You need 20-116 psi (pounds per square inch). Use the Samsung supply hoses. Some flood safe hoses may not work (even if new); when damaged, they can completely restrict the flow of water to the washer.
Take off the hoses. Check the filters both on the shut-off side and just inside the washer and clean then of any foreign objects. This is a good time to double check the water pressure at the shut-off valves (have a bucket under the valves.) Replace the inlet hoses if they are more than 5 years old.
Check that the drain hose is not lower than the water level in the washer. This can trigger suction causing the water to flow into the washer and straight out to the drain.
Make sure that the door of the washer is tightly closed. Then press the Start/Pause button.
If the error continues, the failure could be at the washer's inlet valve, the sensor that checks the weight of the drum + water, or the wiring or wiring harness to either one of these items. The computer control board can also fail to "hear and respond" to the above. If you have water in the drum with the nF error, start checking the sensor. If no water flows into the washer, check the valve first.
the code means water inlet problem Have the water flow meter checked or
replaced. If the internal wheel sticks inside the meter, the CCU will
think no water is entering the washer and give you this error code. Do
you notice an above normal amount of water in the washer when you
notice the error code? This is a good indication the flow meter is
faulty. You can obtain the part from Sears and install it yourself. Very
easy fix. The flow meter has a reed switch on the
side of it. Sometimes this switch fails and doesn't respond to the
magnetic wheel inside the flow switch. It is suppose to provide a pulse
action as the wheel turns. The CCU interprets these pulses to determine
flow rate. Just because the wheel inside the meter turns, does not
necessarily mean the reed switch is functioning. Exactly when do
you see the hf error. At the exact moment you see the error is the
washer's water level higher than normal?
A GOOD TIP IS: blow air back into drum and into
the pressure switch. It will usually work after that!
I had similar issue. Fill tube running from the bottom of detergent tray to the washer drum was plugged.... (by a sock!!!). How did it get there? I'll tell you. You see the drum seal (around the inside of the door) is not a tight seal. You can actually reach up behind it from where it meets the top of the drum. Anyway in my case, a sock made it's way through that seal and outside the drum and into the drum containment vessel. So when the drum spun (to dry the clothes and empty the water) it made a terrible noise. The sock became lodged at the base of the fill tube opening and plugged it thus not allowing any water into the drum. Instead, when filling, the water just flowed out from the bottom of the detergent tray and onto the floor. I hope this helps.
I would check the drainpump ans see if there is something jammed inside like a coin or screw,nail etc before doing anything else .Unplug the machine first though . A burning smell will occur with a load of water trying to spin .
You are correct.. FH is an indication the the machine is not sensing enough water flowing into the machine.... The only thing you can do without taking the machine apart is to disconnect the water hoses to the back of your machine and inspect the filter screens for any type of debris that might be restricting water flow into the machine. Typically, the cold water line is more susceptible to foreign matter than the hot waterline. If screens appear OK then the problem may be with the water fill valve, water flow sensor, (flowmeter) water pressure switch or blockage in the water pressure switch hose.
However.. if everything is fine using just cold, verify hot water for proper pressure or possible kinks in the hose.
I have foud a solution 4E error for my Samsung WD7101CKW. Water that comes inside washer is splitted in splitter with valves. One of these valves has a red label on it - this is a valve with restrictor of flow inside. This restrictor is used to limit flow speed mainly for testing purposes of pressure/water level sensor. Because of that restrictor (red cap with two holes of 0,5 mm diameter) blocked flow too much, after some time washer controller thinks that water has too low pressure. Unplug washer, disassemble hoses from valves, disassemble valves from the washer (screwdriver needed), drill both holes in red restrictor to 1 mm (use 1 mm drill or just big needle). Assemble in reverse. Will work :) Greetings - Thomas
