ARXF125 FRONT LOADER WASHING MACHINE FLASHING H20 SYMBOL DURING CYCLE
H20 is "no fill" or difficult fill. To test:Put the temp select switch on HOT, start machine. If water comes out check the flow amount. If no water flow, replace inlet water valve. If there is water flow switch to COLD, restart machine, if necessary. If water comes out check the flow amount should be approximately equal or slightly more than flow on HOT. If no water flow, replace inlet water valve. Move selector to WARM, restart machine if necessary. Now there should be twice the flow of water than with just HOT and COLD temps. If all seems good turn off the water supply taps. Loosen the connections at the machine. Wait for the hoses to relax before unscrewing them too far. If they do not relax STOP retighten and let me know. After removing the hoses check the screens condition in the end of valve. Those screens can become fouled with lime and other debris. Use a toothbrush and a spray bottle to remove crud. Hold the end of the hoses over a bucket or in the tub of washer and turn on TAPs to check the pressure, it doesn't have to blast out of there (but it likely will if you turn TAPs too far, so be careful) still it has to be more than a weak flow. If the screens are clean and if there is good flow the water valve should function, if it doesn't it is defective and will need replaced. BUT, before you do that you should try one more thing. Make sure you UNPLUG THE MACHINE FOR THIS! Open the console and disconnect and reconnect every wire connector you see. If a connection doesn't pop right off just give it a good wiggle. The goal here is to verify that connections are good, so reseat what you can and wiggle the rest and give wires that go through plastic connectors a slight push from behind the connector. Then plug the machine back in and give it a try. It's worked for me more than once. Let me know what you find out.
