F/H code in my Kenmore Elite H4

I'm getting an H and F code with my washer. I've checked the hoses, (there are no screens), it seems to be getting plenty of pressure when I sneak a peek in the detergent dispenser drawer. I have to hit pause, wait a few minutes then press start. Then it happens again after about a minute. And again.I've cleared the filter (door and pump). I can feel the impellers in the pump and they're clear. I get the same problem with all mixes of hot and cold water and on all types of cycles. It happens in the wash and rinse cycle. Help!

    I've checked everything I can on the list, but when it keeps saying "verify" such as for the pressure switch, and inlet valve operation, it sounds like a service call might be in order.

    This solution gives me a lot more options than other websites or blogs. Also, for those things I can't fix myself, at least I'll be a better informed consumer

This will happen if there is No water detected entering The machine or, the Pressure switch trip not detected.


If after 30 seconds the control does not detect water entering the machine, the valves will be turned off and the error code will be displayed.
Or
If the control has turned the water valves on and after 8 minutes the flow meter has detected 10.5 gallons of water passing through it, but has not detected the pressure switch trip, the valves will be turned off and the error code will flash.

You can clear the display by pressing the Cancel/Pause button twice. Check the causes below.


Potential Causes

• If there is no water in the unit:
- Make sure that both valves at the water source(s) are turned on all the way.
- Check for plugged or kinked inlet hoses or plugged screens in the inlet valves
- Verify inlet valve operation
• If there is water in the unit:
- Verify Drain pump operation
- Pressure Switch Hose is in good condition and properly connected to Tub and Pressure switch

• Verify there is not a siphon problem
• Verify wire harness connections to; Inlet Valves, Pressure Switch, Drain Pump, Flow Meter, and Central Control Unit (CCU)
• Check all hoses for possible leaks
• Verify pressure switch operation
• Verify flow meter operation
• Verify CCU operation

The most common issue will be a failed Pressure switch but, it is recommended to preform all check on all areas stated above before you replace the pressure switch.

My machine is Kenmore Elite front load It is


Hello Sandra,
The FH error code means the computer on the control board didn't detect any water entering the washer..sometimes it doesnt detect the water entering because the filter screens on the water inlet valve are clogged with sediment and water is having a hard time entering the washer.

The filter screens can be checked by turning off water at the faucets and disconnecting the fill hoses from the back of the machine and pop the screens out of where the hoses connect at the washer and check for blockage in them. If they are found to be clean, check the water coming out of the hoses before connecting them back to the washer...if the screens are clean and water pressure is good out of the hoses the part of the washer called the FLOW METER would need to be replaced.

Kenmore elite went through a cycle, but didn't spin on the final rinse. diplay screen is flashing F then H. F then H. what is going on?


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. 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.
hope this helps you...

Our kenmore elite frontload washer drains too soon


For low water volume - or "Trickling" effect...

1. Turn off the water supply to both hoses.
2. Remove hoses (one at a time so you don't get them confused)
3. On the washer side - look for a removeable screen inside wher you just removed the hose.
4. Using a small screwdriver - pop out the screen and reverse-flush it/clean it. It will likely be full of sediment and calcium deposits from your pipes.
5. Replace the inlet screens.
6. Re-fit the hose to the machine.
7. Turn on water supply valves.
8. re-try.

Kenmore Elite washing machine will not fill as fast as usual.


You will need to get behind the washer, turn the water off, disconnect the hose from the washer, look for a screen inside the water valve, hopefully there is one that you can clean if necessary. I always put the hose over in the washer and turn the water on to check the flow.

If the screens on both hot and cold are clear, water flow is good on both hot and cold, connect the water back to the washer. If the flow is still slow then the problem is inside the valve. The valve will have to be replaced.

Kenmore elite h4 washer fh code


F/H is a no water fault code, so i would recheck your incoming water supply, or look to a problem with the inlet water valve.. if your using stainless steel hoses, form the manufacture lableld FLOOD SAFE, these maybe your issue as well they have a buitl in water shut off, htat may be failing preventing water from entering
