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

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

FH SIGNAL MEANS ......... WHAT IS THE USE OF FH SIGNAL........ AND APPLICATIONS


The error code FH means no water is detected entering the machine which can be due to a faulty flow meter not registering the correct amount of water that has passed through it or the pressure is not tripping from the empty position to the full position when the correct water level has been reached. Your machine is definitely made by Whirlpool like other Kenmore and Maytag washing machine so they are basically the same and troubleshooting is then the same. The link below contains the detailed troubleshooting of this error code for a Whirlpool Duet and should be applicable to your machine.

With 26 minutes remaining FH appears where the time is displayed and the wash stops. What does FH mean


Hello & Welcome to FixYa

FH error is displayed when the control detects no water entering the machine. To clear this error press and hold the PAUSE/CANCEL button twice. You can then check if the water inlet valve is fine and not clogged with foreign particles, try to clean it. If the water inlet valve appears to be fine then check if the pressure switch hose is properly connected to the pressure switch & tub. Please get back to me if you have any questions.

When washer starts to wash it beeps and flashes the letters FH.


Hi

Error FH means that a water inlet problem has occurred. 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. Press PAUSE/CANCEL twice to clear the display. If the machine is not filling then check whether both valves at water source are turned ON and inlet hose are not plugged. If the machine is filling fine then chec the pressure switch hose and the drain hose for siphoning (also make sure water is not flowing back to the machine from drain hose). Check wire harness connections to: Inlet Valves, Pressure Switch, Drain Pump, Flow Meter, and Central Control Unit (CCU). Hope this helps... Please post back if you need more information.

My wash-machine stop it, and on display write ''FH''? What's happened?


Hello,FH means some cicle is taking too long time.
Replace the inlet electrical valve. It probably wont open enough and the water flow is not enough to fill to level in time. This should cost you 10€ and is easily done by anyone.
Just remove the top of the machine (two bolts on the rear and slide to the back), disconnect the valve (electrical and water input and output), push the lockers and twist the valve free.


Thanks

Stops Mid-Cycle: Error code is blinking ?H? then ?F?


FH, in mid cycle most likely your pump is blocked, hit drain/spin and see if water drains, if not clean pump

Water tap closed


The FH code indicates it is not detecting water fill at the flow meter. Since you say that the washer is filling okay, I would check the wiring between the flowmeter and the control board. A common cause of this problem on this machine is the wiring harness jiggling loose. Unplug and reseat the wiring harness and see if it clears up the problem. Also look for and clean out any corrosion build-up where the harness plugs in. Hope this helped and best wishes.

A few seconds into a wash cycle the letters F H flash and beep and the cycle won't continue. what does this mean??


fh means fill hose make sure that water is comeing out of each hose by detaching from washer and filling a bucket. does water come out of hot and cold? check and make sure your fill valve washers are not clogged with sand. if neither of these things fix it I believe you have a bad flow meter. take the kick panel off by removing the 3 torque screws look to the right side you will see the tech sheet. read the fh error code. let me know how it goes. Do you have flood stop hoses if so get ride of them right away they cause a ton of problems with all washers.
