Not familiar with your model, re flow meter, but.....

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

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 are turned on full.
2. Check for plugged or kinked inlet hoses or blocked screens in the inlet valves
3. Verify inlet valve operation if there is water in the unit:
4 Verify Drain pump operation
5. Pressure Switch Hose is in good condition and properly
connected to tub & pressure switch (which is below the
control unit)
6.Verify there is not a siphon problem
7 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

F h flases


First try turning off the machine for 30 minutes. Still FH? 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.

Washing maching flashes F H on time display


Hi


The FH code indicates a fill failure. The problem can be with the fill valves, flow meter or the pressure switch. This error occurs if the control doesn't see the flow meter turning. This usually a fault of the flow meter but be sure both the hot and cold water valves are working. Try a hot water wash cycle and confirm that hot water is coming into the washer. Check both valves and if they are working the problem is most likely the flow meter.

Also the FH error means it's either you have a drain problem if there is water in it or if if there is now water in it, make sure that both water inlets are turned all the way up. check to make sure that you don't have any water leaks anywhere visible.

Please get back to us if you have further query else please accept the suggestion.

How do you fix a FH code ( water inlet problem) on a Kenmore Elite HE3t front load washer

Keep getting fh code, replaced pressure switch, replaced flowmeter, noticed that the hot water would not shut off, even put on cold water only and hot water would still run. Machine is constantly sending...


the code means water inlet problem
Have the water flow meter checked or replaced. If the internal wheel sticks inside the meter, the CCU will think no water is entering the washer and give you this error code.
Do you notice an above normal amount of water in the washer when you notice the error code? This is a good indication the flow meter is faulty. You can obtain the part from Sears and install it yourself. Very easy fix.
The flow meter has a reed switch on the side of it.
Sometimes this switch fails and doesn't respond to the magnetic wheel inside the flow switch. It is suppose to provide a pulse action as the wheel turns. The CCU interprets these pulses to determine flow rate. Just because the wheel inside the meter turns, does not necessarily mean the reed switch is functioning. Exactly when do you see the hf error. At the exact moment you see the error is the washer's water level higher than normal?

A GOOD TIP IS: blow air back into drum and into the pressure switch. It will usually work after that!

What does it mean when the washing machine stops and blinks the letters fh?


The fault code "FH" means basicly a water inlet flow problem. Make sure you check that you have enough pressure and the machine is filling to the correct level

FH error because I had the water turned off


The FH code means that the unit isn't detecting water at the flow meter. The flow meter sits just in front of the inlet valve and is attached via a hose, and off to the left the CCU. Check the wiring from the flow meter to the control unit and make sure all connections are tight. Also, press and hold the "end of cycle" button for a minimum of three seconds. Hope this helped and best wishes.
