FH stands for filler hose. Pull the machine out and turn off the valves to the filler hoses. Remove the hoses to the back of the machine (maybe only one if cold fill only) and if you look into the spigot which the hose screws onto there will be a screen inside. Check that it's not blocked with debris.

FH IS FLASHING ON THE WASHER AND IT HAD STOPPED WORKING ONLY 5 MNUTES INTO ITS CYCLE


Hello,

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 scrrens 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

My Whirlpool Duet front load washing machine is showing a F/H code. The manual says to check the hoses for kink/leaks etc. we have done that and there arent any. The machine still shows F/H what would be...


Hi

Error code FH appears when No water is detected entering machine or Pressure switch trip is 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. Press PAUSE/CANCEL twice to clear the display. If there is no water entering the unit then make sure that the inlet valves are working fine. You may need to check the continuity at the inlet valves. If the valves are fine then check whether inlet water hoses as they might be plugged. Also check for inlet water screen at the valve. However, if the water is entering into the washer then the Drain pump might not be working. Also inspect the Pressure Switch hose whether it is in good condition and properly connected to Tub and Pressure switch. Also check hoses for leak and inspect the flow meter. Hope this helps...

HE3t has an FH error code checked the following and are OK. pressure switch, flow meter, and inlet valves water flows in without restriction. What else could it be? Craig


Hi,

Thank you for contacting fixya.com.

FH error code means low water inflow. In this error washer is not filling when the fill valve opens.
To clear the error please follow the bellow instructions:-
Press the "Stop" button twice with your finger. This cancels the cycle and stops the washer. Unplug the power cord from the wall outlet.Turn the water shut off valves clockwise to stop the water flow to the washer through the supply hoses. Pull the washer away from the wall enough that you can access the hose connections at the back of the washer.

Set a bucket under the area of the hose connections. Unscrew the hose connections from the back of the washer. If necessary, use a pair of slip joint pliers to help start the connections turning until you can turn them by hand. Set the ends of the hoses inside the bucket.Inspect the screens on the inlet ports on the back of the washer where the hoses connect. Sediment and other debris can block these screens, causing fill problems. Clean the screen with an old toothbrush.

Thread the hoses back onto the washer. Look for kinks in the hoses. Kinks cut off water supply to the washer which causes the FH error code. Once you connect the hoses, turn the water supply valves counter-clockwise to supply water to the washer. Move the bucket away from the washer and push the washer back into its working position.Plug the power cord back into the outlet and start the wash cycle again. If the FH error code comes up again, call a service repairman. If the hoses have no kinks and the inlet screens are clean, there is a problem with either the pressure switch or the flow meter.

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

FH appears


The FH error code on your Kenmore Elite washing machine is an indicator that there is a problem with incoming water. When there is little water coming into the machine, the FH code will appear and the washer will stop. There are a couple of common problems you can check while you are resetting the FH error code. You will need to remove the power supply to the washer to reset the code

Look for the "Pause/Cancel" button on the washer control panel. The button will be below the digital time clock and to the lower right of the wash cycle selector.

  • 2

    Press the "Pause/Cancel" button twice to cancel the wash cycle. Unplug the Kenmore Elite washer from the wall outlet.

  • 3

    Check for kinks in the water supply hose while the washer does not have power. Turn off the water supply spigots and remove the hoses from the back of the washer. Check the port screens at the hose connections for sediment buildup and clean as necessary.

  • 4

    Connect the water supply hoses back to the washer and turn on the water spigots. Plug the washer cord back into the wall outlet.

  • 5

    Select the wash cycle and press the "Start" button.

  • If the error code come back you will probably have to change the water inlet valves. No hard to do and you can fdo this yourself

    Our washing machine will not drain, and keeps bringing up "LD" error code. It keeps beeping and the timer isn't going down.


    1. residential washer displays error codes. Though designed to indicate the nature of the error, to anyone without a copy of a washer manual handy, the codes might as well be Martian cryptography. Luckily, the Manage My Life website has partnered with Kenmore and made manuals for each make and model of Kenmore washer available online. The error codes are differentiated between top and front-loading machines.
    2. FH Error Code
    3. When a front-loading Kenmore residential washer displays the "FH" error code, the machine is experiencing a water-inlet problem. A water-inlet problem is the result of the washer receiving too little water to operate. The Kenmore owner's manual suggests five home remedies for this problem: Check that the water faucets connected to the washer are turned on; that the inlet screens in the washer's connection hose are not clogged; that the hose is not kinked; and that the hose is not frozen. If none of these problems are present, turn off the washer, unplug it, plug it back in, and restart the machine.
    4. FL Error Code
    5. The "FL" error code on a top-loading Kenmore residential washer indicates that the machine has over filled. When a residential Kenmore washer is overfull, it will beep every 10 seconds. The pump will cycle on and off every 30 seconds in an attempt to rectify the problem. To stop the pump or restart the machine, either disengage and then re-engage the power source to the washer, or push the overfill reset switch. If water continues to enter the machines after the "FL" error has appeared, shut off the inlet flow faucet or the machine will overflow.
    6. F02 Error Code
    7. The "F02" error code on a front-loading Kenmore residential washer indicates that the machine is experiencing a drainage problem. Home-remedy solutions for this error code, as suggested by the Kenmore manual, are similar to those for the "FH" error code: Insure that the drainage hose is not kinked, frozen, or clogged. If none of these problems are present, check that the hose is less than 96 inches, or 8 feet, above the floor. A hose more than eight feel from the floor will not drain properly

    Wont finish FH appears can you tell me the reason why


    From the tech sheets on this model, here's what FH means:

    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.
    —Verify that the pressure switch hose is in good condition and
    properly connected to tub and pressure switch.
    1. Verify there is not a siphon problem.
    2. Unplug washer or disconnect power.
    3. Verify wire harness connections to inlet valves,
    pressure switch, drain pump, flow meter, and
    Central Control Unit (CCU).
    4. Check all hoses for possible leaks.
    5. Plug in washer or reconnect power
    6. Verify pressure switch operation.
    7. Verify flow meter operation by blowing air through the part and
    measuring the resistance.
    8. Verify CCU operation by running a Diagnostic test or any cycle.

    Washer keeps giving FH code. no restrictions in water flow. maybe a sensor?


    After 30 seconds if the control does not detect water entering the machin then the water valve will be shut off and the error code show.

    also:
    If the control has turned the water valves on and 8 minutes pass and the flow meter has measured roughly 10.1/2 gallons of watergoing through it, but hasnt detected the pressure switch being triped, the water valve will shut off and the fh error code will blink

    First push the PAUSE/CANCEL key twice to clear the control



    If no water in the unit do this: - Make sure the valves at the water source are turned on fully.
    Inspect for plugged or kinked inlet hoses or maybe plugged screens in the inlet valves
    Also inspect the water valves operation


    If there is water in the washer: - Inspect the drain pump, and the pressure switch hose for any kinks or rips. also check for proper connections with that hose to the tub and pressure switch.

    may be a siphon problem read your manual on that.
    Check all wireing harness connections to the Water valves,pressure switch, drain pump, flow meter, and the ccu or cental control unit
    Inspect all hoses for any leaks
    Replace the failed component if found ...

    hope this helps
