Ok I dont quite remember what the F H stands for but I can tell ya where to find it! ON the front bottom of your machine is a panel. There are 3 screws on it either 9/32, 7mm, or a 15 torques. Remove these and remove panel. The tech sheet will be either on the back of that panel or taped to the right bottom side. open it up and locate the FH code info and fix your problem

Take the top panel off as well. 3 screws in back. Take off flow meter and blow threw it see if that helps. It will sound like a cazuu. Also make sure all wires are attached and on. Afetr 3 years, I have had the same problem. And I just did these steps from answers I have found on here, and so far so good. I will clarify if it works after my next load. Here is a link to a pic of inder the top panel:

You can also take off bottom kick panel and unscrew the white drain trap and make sure there are no hidden treasures in the drain.

Finished, wash and spin lights flashing. Door


I just had this problem! To get the clothes out, open door manually (follow answers on other threads here about opening toe panel and gently pulling down on door release). But as it turned out, I didn't need to remove the clothes, and now my washer is working again.

A local repairman gave me this advice over the phone. Make sure dial is switched to off. Unplug your machine, then plug it back in. Hold down the rinse and delay buttons with one hand. With the other hand, switch the dial from off to cold or warm or whatever cycle you want. All the buttons flash a few times, then just the start button flashes. The second time I tried this, my washer worked afterwards. I've done several loads today with no problem.

The machine stops after the wash cycle and won't finish.


The code is UE

load too small.
• Load is out of balance.
• The washer has an imbalance
detection and correction
system. If individual heavy
articles are loaded (bath
mat, bath robe, etc.) and the
imbalance is too great, the
washer will make several
attempts to restart the spin
cycle. If an imbalance is still
detected, the washer will stop
and the error code will be
displayed.
• Add 1 or 2 similar items to help balance the load.
• Rearrange items to help balance the load.

MAH 2400 AWW flashing error code "dc"


Hi Pepsi,
"dc" means that the control board is trying to ramp up (that is, send a signal to the motor controller), but has encountered an unbalanced load and so shuts down. Specifically, "dc" means "distribute clothes".

I took this opportunity to upload a Tech and Troubleshooting manual for you. Here is the link for it. Read it carefully. You will be required to perform a "board output" test after placing the machine in "Service Mode".

I gotta tell ya, though. Based on my history with these, I highly suspect that the machine control board has failed. Let me know what you find, OK?

(And don't forget to rate this solution as "FixYA!", deal?

Bosch classixx 1000 washing machine - stops on spin


Washing machine stops at the spin cycle - light flashes. Have to drain water out manually. Happened last week and was then able to run an empty rinse cycle. Machine worked normally for another week. Same problem today but have had to drain water manually from the drum after trying an empty 90 wash and rinse cycle (both stopped on the Spin and flashed). Any ideas? Thanks. x
