    After 20 seconds of filling water, it stops & flashes 'HF'. If I reset 2 or 3 times, washer will complete the cycle. Can the flow sensor or pressure censor cause this problem?

    How do you reset this machine?

    I have the same machine purchased in 2002. It has worked fine but since I moved it has started the HF code about 5 mins. after it starts filling with water. Plenty of water comes in as I know the code means insufficient water coming in. Why? What can be done to fix it, besides calling Sears repair man? The answer given makes no sense to me.

Check your exit hose spigot, it may be clogged. This is if your filter is all clean. There should be air for passage in the standpipe behind. Your hose should not fit airtight into the standpipe and neither too deep into it. Snaking out your standpipe would be good too. Height of exit hose should be approx 3 feet from ground level.

Rate me pl.....if helped.

*&^% screws!!!

F2 = Long Drain. Most common cause is something (or lots of things) stuck in the drain pump. There are screws at the bottom of the front panel that can be removed to check it out. If the screws look like stars they are Torx head screws, get driver from most home centers.

Here's a link that explains the "FH" error code:

Read through these steps and let me know if you require further assistance. HINT: I'm assuming you have water entering the wash tub since you mentioned the washer will begin a wash cycle. Check for a siphoning issue or Drain Pump problem first. These are the simplest items to check. I hope this helps you.

PS There should be a tech sheet located inside you washer behind the lower panel under the door, or along the interior cabinet wall that explains all the error codes and how to troubleshoot. This may also assist you further.

F 11 Error Code

The door will stay locked if the machine did not drain properly. Try running a Drain & Spin cycle.
