F-H code and beeping noise

My washer is showing the code F and H alternately during the wash cycle and there is a beeping noise. There is no accumulation of water inside the washer although the clothes are still soggy. I've tried canceling the load twice but every time the washer finishes the wash cycle, it refuses to spin. Please help! I have a mountain of laundry to do!

My washing machine has started beeping during the wash cycle - why?

Try running the same wash cycle with no clothes in the machine, just the water.
If it does not beep you are overloading it or the load is unbalanced.

Kenmore HE3 washer emits steady, constant beeeeeeeeeeeeeep

Depending on how your washer controls the beeper, it could be a stuck relay or a fried transistor.

Washer won't stop beeping and can not change cycle selections

what light is flashing when it beeps. You might have to check and see if you are getting water to both Hot and Cold on the machine. Or your door might be closed all the way

My tricity bendix washing machine flashing and beeping end light

Hi, we had something similar happen just before christmas. Our machine seemed to finish a cycle and started making beeping noise with end light flashing. Then when I switched it back on to do another load it just started beeping with end light flashing no matter what cycle was selected. Engineer has been out and advised that it is a fault with the motherboard so has ordered another one. Hope this is of some help. Machine was tricity bendix aw1400w.
