Question about Kenmore Elite 45986 Front Load Washer
I put a load of clothes in washer and water fills up then it stops its cycle and starts beeping and flashing F and H. Start the "spin/drain" cycle and try the load again. Same results. Sears has come out on 3 occassions and only tell me that its unbalanced and I need to put bleach and vingar in the cycle w/ the He soap. We are now at our 3rd house and its still doing the same thing. You can't tell me that the floor at 3 different house are all unbalanced. Sears only wants me to purchase another warranty. What do I need to do??
I had the same problem and I had to call my father-in-law. We took the top of the washer off and found the sensor that it talks about on this site. He said that there is a wheel in the plastic casing and it tells the ccu how much water is coming through. He said that I might have some calcium built up in the casing. He tapped it a couple of times and reconnected everything back. Now the machine is working fine and no more problems or codes. The sensor is easy to find. It is the one that is connected to the hot and cold fill valve and then it goes to the white sensor. That is the one that he tapped on.

F H means that no water was detected entering machine
Is the water coming in just as fast as it always had????
If indeed the water is fine than there is a sensor called a flowmeter that tell the CCU if and how much water has entered.
It also uses a water level pressure switch to monitor water level, but ive had 0 problems with this switch
