Duet Washing Machine model ghw9100lw1 FH ERROR CODE

No problems until I learned after 5 years there is a filter that needs to be cleaned. No mention in manual. Anyway an error code stopped it from running. Cleaned it out then started it.

Now no water coming into the machine and an FH error. I have replaced:
water inlet flow meter art Number: AP3128779 made by WHIRLPOOL and checked all hoses electrical connnections etc.

I ran the secret technical steps from a book I found in the machine. Only problem was again no water coming in.

    I have the same problem. FH comes up on all washes when it comes for the time to rinse, we've cleaned all filters and pipes to and from washer but nothing at all is helping. Does anyone know if it is mendable??

I ended up spending too much money on self diagnosis. Called the repair company and he said it was the pump. I ordered my own, wife installed it, yes she did by golly. And good as new.

We have a F DL error and the door is clicking. It either does not lock or stays locked but none the less the washer will not start. The error stands for "Failed Door Lock".

There is no whizzing noise at all. I am going to replace the water inlet valves but I am afraid it is the computer boards.

How to fix fh error that started with F02?

boil some water an put in some ammonia an toss it in an run it on sanitize at hottest an longest cycle.
open the filter again when completed an look inside an up in the boot area an in the motor area to see its all cleaned .
in the future use only he detergent
an use vinegar for softener for your clothing.
if you have gunk its from the softner your previously using it will need as many cleanings as it takes to clear it.
if too much work then take the whole unit to the yard an pressure wash it all out.

Washing machine keeps flashing up fh and not working


The FH error code means the computer on the control board didnt 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

Getting a code F then H

Hi, "FH" is a No Water Detect error.It is an indication that you either have no water coming into the washer, or very little water at all. Check whether the water taps are turned on sufficiently, the inlet hoses are not kinked, the water inlet valve is not clogged, you don't have a siphoning issue, and/or the drain pump is working.

Our model GHW9100LW1 Duet Whirlpool Front Load Washer has an intermittent H-F code,beeps and stops. Seems like it's worse with winter coming...20's to 40's outside...input water too cold or not enough...

H and F code flashing alternately could be one or more of the following items not working properly or bad:

- Flowmeter.
- Water inlet valve
- Water pressure switch. (last thing to replace)

Make sure to unplug power cord before you replace the part and also make to clean drain tube and filter every year.

After 27 minutes into wash get an FH error

The FH code on the Whirlpool Duet washers indicates that the unit is not detecting water fill at the flowmeter. The flowmeter is sits right in front of the water inlet valve and is attached via a hose and is off to the left of the central control unit (ccu). If the washer seems to be filling alright, check out the wiring from the flowmeter to the control unit. Make sure all connections are clean and tight. These connections have been known to jiggle loose and cause this code. Hope this helped and best wishes.

FH Errors

FH error code has to do with no water detected or pressure switch trip not detected. is there water in the unit or is it empty? Joe

Nov 18, 2008 | Whirlpool Duet GHW9150P Front Load Washer

1 Answer

No service manual

water filters in the hose attachment at the machine cloggs up. Sometimes fast. take off hose and clean the filters.
This is from whirlpool:
FH 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.
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.

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

Replace failed component.
