Question about Maytag EPIC MFW9700S Front Load Washer
I was running a load of wash when the water got shut off (have a construction crew there and they didn't know I was washing a load of laundry) Now the code FH comes on. I've unplugged to reset. Put another load on and it runs great until the rinse cycle then the FH error code comes back
Your drain is clogged, not the one in the wall where the drain hose goes, but the internal drain, you have to use a 7mm quarter inch drive socket and a 2 inch or longer extension. There are three screws at the very bottom of the washer which must be removed. When standing you cannot see these screws, you have to lay down and look under the washer, between the feet of the washer to find them. Once the bottom cover is removed there is a "cylindrical box" thing with a front cover, the front covers is simply screwed into the cylindrical box housing, unscrew it. Warning, there is a lot of water in here so don't be sitting when you remove it. When you get it open you will discover that this is the internal filter, you'll find small socks and coins and god knows what else in here. Now follow the drain line out and feel it from the outside by pinching it to see if it is clear, if it is clear it should compress quite easily if it is clogged remove it and **** it out with a wire hanger. Reassembly is the opposite of disassembly. This should fix you error message. And buy the way if you remove the top cover there is a "Technicians Manual" stored inside the washer under the top cover that describes some of this procedure and defines all of the error codes.

Bad wire harness connection. Check all connections for loose or corrosion, etc.

First try turning off the machine for 30 minutes. Then check your inlet valve. Shut off valve, switch off machine & see if the water comes full flow. Check the filters on the machine inlet entry, they could be blocked, clean out.
The FH indicates a fill failure and this is usually caused by a bad water valve, flow meter or pressure switch.
One key to determining the cause of the FH error is how fast the error comes up in a cycle. If the error appears within 1 or 2 minutes then the most likely cause will be the water valve or flow meter.
If the error doesn't appear for several minutes then the pressure switch can be the source of the problem.
Both water valves must be turned on and working. Even if a cold wash is selected at some point during the fill the hot water valve will be energized and if there is no water then the FH error will show up. Sometimes a consumer will turn the hot water valve off to save energy but you can't turn one valve off on this washer.
Inlet valves can be purchased thru the net and fitted by you easily.
