F 20 displaying on front load machine


The F20 error deals with the water coming into the tub. The F20 code indicates the control didn't see any water enter the tub.
You say water comes in and fills up to the bottom of the door before the error appears.
There is a flow meter that tells the control water is coming into the washer. If the flow meter is faulty the error usually happens quickly.
There is a pressure switch and the clear plastic hose may be kinked or even have a small hole in it. One thing to try is to remove the top of the washer and then pull the hose off the pressure switch and blow through it towards the tub to check for obstructions in the air dome.
The drain hose should not be stuck down the standpipe to far. If the drain hose is stuck down the standpipe a siphon action ca occur. This means the water would fill and drain at the same time which might lead to the F20 error.
Check the drain line first and then remove the top of the washer to access the pressure switch and pressure hose. With the washer empty remove the hose from the pressure switch located on the right side of the washer and blow through it to clear any debris blocking the pressure hose or air trap.
Post the results along with your complete model number.

Whirlpool duet washer LF error


LF error means "Long Fill". Whirlpool uses a flow meter that detects the flow of water entering the washer. If this flow meter does not detect the correct amount of water entering the washer it will sound the LF error code. Often this repair can be made with out calling an appliance repairman and without ordering parts. Start by removing the washer fill hoses; both the cold and the hot water hoses. Check for proper water pressure from the house. To do so, turn the water on and put the hose inside the washer or a bucket.

If water pressure is good, check the water valve inlet screens. Most residential washing machines have inlet screens. The screens prevent minerals from clogging the solenoid. With the hoses removed, you can visually inspect the water inlet screens. If the water valve screens are clear the inlet valve with the screens itself will need to be replaced. To replace the water valve, remove the top of the washing machine. Three screws hold the top down. The screws that hold the top down are on the back of the top panel. Once removed the top will slide back and off. Now remove the wire harness that connects to the valve. One screw holds the valve to the washers cabinet. Removing the screw and sliding the valve over will release the valve from the back panel enabling you to complete your repair.

One last thing to check is the fill hoses. These front load washers call for a lot of water quickly. So if you have stainless steel braided flood-safe hoses, they will trip for no reason at all. Replace these flood safe hoses with more traditional hoses. If the hoses are good and you haven't found anything slowing down the flow of the water, your electronic inlet water valve is just faulty on the back of your washer and will need to be replaced because it's just not allowing water flow into the washer correctly.

On Duet Front Loader- Error code F/H. Can see plenty of water coming in so I suspect pressure switch. Is this a common problem? I don't quite understand your pressure switch check procedure in your...


This error code F/H tells that no water entering the machine is detected during the fill step of the wash cycle. It can be due to siphoning, pressure switch not tripping or stuck in the empty position, or the water flow meter is not reading the correct water flow. Make sure that no water is draining out of the drain hose due to siphoning as water fills in and position the end of the hose to prevent such condition.

The pressure switch is stuck and not tripping if after 8 minutes the water flow meter has detected 10.5 gallons of water passing through it but the control has not detected the pressure switch trips. The water valves are then turned off and the error code is flashed. The error code is also flashed if after 30 seconds the water valves are turned on and no water is detected entering the machine due to sticking flow meter pinwheel or the flow meter is not positioned properly.

The flow meter is position sensitive. The pinwheel must be installed vertically. Any canter to it may cause the wheel to stick. Many times the F/H error code pops up only when HOT water passes through the flow meter. The hot water may be softening the hoses on either side of the meter, causing the flow meter to canter. Stuck or cantered pinwheel affects the flow meter's ability to read water flow accurately. Disconnect the hoses from the flow meter then blow air into the inlet to free a possible stuck pinwheel. Replace the flow meter if the pinwheel is totally stuck and cannot be freed.

Check the pressure hose for possible kinks or air leaks if the flow meter pinwheel is positioned vertically and turning freely. Kinks and air leaks in the pressure hose prevents pressure built up in the pressure switch dome and the pressure switch cannot trip. Check the pressure hose including its connections to the pressure switch and the bottom of the tub. Blow air into the pressure hose to clear possible clogs or kinks and check it for air leaks. Also blow air into the pressure switch dome to free a possible pressure switch contacts welded or stuck in the empty position. You should hear the pressure switch clicks if it is tripping. Replace the pressure switch if not tripping and the pressure hose has no kinks or air leaks.

The F20 error deals with the water coming into the tub. The F20 code indicates the control didn't see any water enter the tub.

  1. There is a flow meter that tells the control water is coming into the washer. If the flow meter is faulty the error usually happens quickly.
  2. Near the pressure switch is a clear plastic hose may be kinked or even have a small hole in it. Check the drain line first and then remove the top of the washer to access the pressure switch and pressure hose. With the washer empty remove the hose from the pressure switch located on the right side of the washer and blow through it to clear any debris blocking the pressure hose or air trap.
  3. If this doesn't help then most likely you will need to replace the pressure switch.

I have a Kenmore He2plus washer that gives me an error of F33


Hi,

"F33" means that the CCU has not received a signal to shut off the water which would be sent by the pressure switch. The flow meter has signaled that the tub has received 10.5 gallons the CCU then shuts off the water and pumps the water out, giving the F33 error code.

Thank you !!

Getting a H then a F error when the washer is washing a load.... I ended up turning it off. I've also received a F 02 error and a SUD error.


Hello, the H and F error means no water is detected entering the machine or the pressure switch trip is not detected. If the control has turn 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 valve will be turn off and the error code will be display.
So try the following steps
1. Check drain pump operation
2. Check the pressure switch hose to see if it's in good condition and properly connected to tub and pressure switch
3. Check is it is not a siphon problem
4. Check wire harness connections to: inlet valves, pressure switch, drain pump,flow meter, and central control unit(CCU)
5. Check all hoses for possible leaks
6. Check pressure switch operations
7. Check flow meter operation
8. Check CCU operation

F-02 ERROR: Means "Long Drain" that is if the drain time exceeds 8 minutes, the water valve are turn off and F-02 is flashed. Check the following
1. Check the drain hose and make sure it is not plugged kinked.
2. Check the drain pump filter for foreign objects
3. Check the electrical connections at the pump and make sure the pump is running.
And for the SUD error means after 4 minutes of the draining process the "sud"error will be display and 4 minutes later the F-02 will be displayed. So apply the solution for the F-02 to these.
Thanks

I am getting the F H error, my washer is an HE3 elite. The error starts arround a minute of starting the cycle. I open it an look for any type of filter and just found 2, one in the front and one where you...


F/H:
Condition
No water detected entering machine or Pressure switch trip not detected.

If after 30 seconds the control does not detect water entering machine and then 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.

Check/Repair:

Press PAUSE/CANCEL twice to clear the display.
  • If there is no water in the unit:


  • 1. Make sure that both valves at the water source(s) are turned on all the way.
    2. Check for plugged or kinked inlet hoses or plugged screens in the inlet valves
    3. Verify inlet valve operation
  • If there is water in the unit:

    1. Verify Drain pump operation
    2. 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
Many times the FLOWMETER will fail on these washers - so the main board does not get a signal there is water coming into the unit.

Verify Flow meter operation and that the Pressure Switch hoses are intact and connected properly. Remove the three screws in the top panel along the back of the washer. With the screws removed, the panel should slide back, then, lift off. The flowmeter will be located on the left-hand side of the washer (facing from the front) between the inlet valve and dispenser. It's a small white plastic device with hoses attached. The pressure switch is located on the right-hand side of the washer in the rear. It is a round plastic device with electrical connections and a hose attached. There should be a tech sheet directly behind the panel or attached to one of the interior cabinet walls. Please refer to this sheet to learn how to perform diagnostics, how to locate the components mentioned, and the specific measurements required in determining if the components are good or bad.

Hello lilo1
Welcome


You said, You are getting an error code F/H but it works most of the time. Then it just quits
You may have low water pressure which the machine senses and after some minutes will shut down .
If any pump runs with insufficient water pressure it will burn out the pump so washers are made with auto shutoff's in those case it does shut off.
Check that the water valves are passing water out of the taps that are connected to the washer and they did not fail.
When you remove the water supply hose from the washer inlet, you will probably find the screens in the washer water inlet are blocked and need to be removed and cleaned off and then replaced.
Do not bend them up and you can re use them!
Below are causes and more remedies
Let me know how it goes!

Duet washer


F-20 stands for the error no water coming in. but there is actual water coming in. so the problem is the flow meter.

it is not detecting that there is water flowing unto it. if the unit is new and still under warranty, they would replace it. if not, then check the alignment of the unit. if it is tilted or change it's orientation with the horizontal, the flow meter would sometimes stuck and would not send the correct signal to the controller.
