SOURCE: Diagnostic test on HE3T stops at C:01. How do I determine if I need to replace the flowmeter or if the issue is with the inlet valves? Note: I have already cleaned the drain pump.

If you turn the machine on normal with the top off so you can actually see the inlet valves, you'll be able to feel if the valves are operating or not. If you hear a humming noise and feel it vibrating yet still get no water then the valve is bad.

Testimonial: "Wish I would have seen this. My husband actually ended up fixing the problem by disconnecting and then reconnecting the flowmeter, cleaning the part that moves to let soap flow into the machine (it was gunked up) and the plastic pipe that opens out the back had fallen out (I guess for steam?) and was down in the bottom of the machine. He reinserted that in the back of the machine. I think between all that and cleaning out the drain pump, we took care of whatever the problem was. Not sure which action did the trick, but we are so glad it is working again! Thanks, we will know how to check the inlet valves if this ever happens again."

Miele Dishwasher won't run. G4220. Fills and empties ok. Originally had F13 error. Circulation impeller has been checked and turns ok.


Tracey, the original poster found her own answer to the problem which is listed here for those with the same problem.

Given the error changes with each flowmeter board I feel I am on to something.

Thanks, Tracey Solved this.

When we checked the circulation pump, we had not replaced the power connector to the pump. Once we plugged that back in all worked okay. So... the fix to the original problem was replacing the flowmeter board.

Whenever I try and pull a shot on my espresso machine, the "constant flow" led starts blinking, and water will not stop dispensing until I hit the "stop" button (does not stop...


There is a problem with the flowmeter, it is located under the drain tray with 3 electrical connectors to it. The flashing means it cannot read the magnet on the wheel. You might have to replace the flowmeter. First try programming a button on the side that is not working, if it does not hold the program then it is the flowmeter.

Code F1, does not stop filling, water pours out of soap tray


Are you sure it's not an F/H error?

The F/H code means the unit isn't detecting water fill at the flowmeter. The flowmeter sits just in front of the inlet valve and is attached via a hose, and off to the left of the CCU. Part link to the flow meter==> http://www.repairclinic.com/PartDetail/Flowmeter/1381535?modelNumber=GHW9250MW2
If your washer is filling ok, check the wiring from the flow meter to the control board; I've seen this harness jiggle loose and cause problems.

Ghw9100lw keeps throwing code f/h help


Unplug power cord. First try to clean drain tube by removing bottom cover: uncrew two bolts on each side. clean tube and filter and pump. If it is fixed, you are done.
If problem comes back, unplug power cord as always. Remove top cover and replace water inlet valve (remember to shut off water valves both hot and cold), unplug connectors to blue switch and remove water flowmeter, blow air thru one end and then the other end to remove dirt inside white water flowmeter. If flowmeter bad, replace it.
Last thing may get bad is pressure switch which is brow color valve on the right side of machine.
Good luck

WE HAVE A CODE COMING UP H F


Hi,
The "F/H" indicates that either you have no water coming into the washer, or very little water.
If you have NO water coming into the wash tub after 30 seconds the error code is displayed. Check the following:
- Inlet water valve may be clogged. Clean inlet screens if necessary.
- Make sure water taps are on.
- Check inlet hoses for kinks or clogs.
If you HAVE water filling the wash tub, and after 8 minutes, 10.5 gallons of water has been detected by the flowmeter, but there has not been a detected a Pressure Switch trip, the inlet valves are turned off and the error code is displayed. Check the following:
- Make sure you don't have a siphoning problem.
- Verify Drain Pump operation.
- Verify Flowmeter operation.
- Verify the Pressure Switch hoses are intact and connected properly.
Thanks for contacting fixya.com

Washing then it beeps and H and F flash, washing machine stops and only the flashing H and F appears..............


The FH code on the Whirlpool Duet washers indicates that the unit is not detecting water fill at the flowmeter. The flowmeter sits right in front of the water inlet valve and is attached via a hose and is off to the left side of the central control unit (ccu). If the washer seems to be filling alright, check out the wiring from the flowmeter to the control unit. Make sure all connections are clean and tight. These connections have been known to jiggle loose and cause this error code. Sure hope this helped and best wishes.

Got a h f alternate flash and then it quit


check you fill hoses first and make sure water is comeing out of each line. If the lines are good check you inlet valve is it clogged with sand if no. check your flowmeter if you have one you need to take the lid off and inline with the dispenser and the inlet vavle you will find a white peice with 2 hoses attached one on each side. that would be you flowmeter take it off and blow through it..it should sound like a cazoo. put it back togther and turn it on if your lines are clear and you see good flow of water entering your washer replace your flowmeter.

Water light keeps blinking and won't brew coffee?


it sounds like either the pump is giving out or the flowmeter.

since it is releasing water from teh steam valve, i'd aim more for the flowmeter giving out.

Not sure if saeco sells them to the public. Usually gets sent out for repair. Repair will run ya 100-150 usually.
