I was getting the F H error code on my washer. I hit cancel twice to clear the code to see of a cycle restart would remedy. Now the wash cycle is stuck on 45 min. remaining & the cancel button is no longer effective.

The FH error code on your Kenmore Elite washing machine is an indicator that there is a problem with incoming water. When there is little water coming into the machine, the FH code will appear and the washer will stop. There are a couple of common problems you can check while you are resetting the FH error code. You will need to remove the power supply to the washer to reset the code.

  • 1 Look for the "Pause/Cancel" button on the washer control panel. The button will be below the digital time clock and to the lower right of the wash cycle selector.

  • 2
    Press the "Pause/Cancel" button twice to cancel the wash cycle. Unplug the Kenmore Elite washer from the wall outlet.

  • 3 Check for kinks in the water supply hose while the washer does not have power. Turn off the water supply spigots and remove the hoses from the back of the washer. Check the port screens at the hose connections for sediment buildup and clean as necessary.

  • 4
    Connect the water supply hoses back to the washer and turn on the water spigots. Plug the washer cord back into the wall outlet.

  • 5
    Select the wash cycle and press the "Start" button.

    Coninuosly repeats spin cycle, any suggestions how to remedy this? I have to manually cancel the cycle in order for the machine to stop recycling through spin

    I had a Centennial washer on a service call doing this just the other day... After putting it trough diagnostics I found no errors and all the washer's mechanics tested okay. After resetting the control by putting it trough the diagnostics mode it continued to repeat cycles without restarting the washer.
    • Try running it through diagnostics and see what error codes are in the memory. (Guide is linked below)
    • What are the codes? do they give any more clues?
    • clear the codes and run a test cycle.
    • does it work?
    • if it checks out properly with the diagnostics it's probably a bad control board...

    If it does turn out to be the control try contacting Maytag (Whirlpool) for a parts concession... Whirlpool customer service guide is linked below.
    Hope that helps! Good luck!

    Fault code f26

    This error code indicates that the door needs to be opened and closed.

    The F26 code may appear the first time you try to use the washer. Open and close the door to clear the display.

    The F26 code may also appear if the washer has run three cycles without the door being opened. Open and close the door to clear the display.

    If opening and closing the door does not remove the error display, press Pause/Off or Pause/Cancel twice.

    If Pause/Off or Pause/Cancel does not work:

    1. Unplug the washer or disconnect the power for one minute.
    2. Plug in the washer or reconnect the power.
    3. Re-select the cycle and press Start.

    Instead of hitting cancel twice, only press once,. You should hear the washer unlock. Then try to start again. If that doesn't work, try unplugging the washer in mid cycle. Are you getting and codes popping up?
