Question about Whirlpool AWM6140 Front Load Washer

1 Answer

Hi, I have a whirlpool AWO/R4205 that will not fill with water and just tries to drain when starting any cycle and never moves on. The water Tap closed light was on earlier but has now gone out. I does have a water supply and i have removed the little filter to check there was nothing obstructing it. I have removed what appears to be 2 solenoids that switch the water off/on, the water supply screws onto it. Is this the likely cause? anything i can do/test? Geoff

All washing machine perform a drain cycle before any wash - that's just the norm geoff.

I'm assuming you'll be getting an F1 fault code

Sounds like the inlet solenoids have gone. get your multi meter on the solenoids - the readings should be around 3.4kOhms - 4.4kOhms

If this proves ok then you'll need to do a 'live test' on the power going to the solenoids at the start of the cycle. (Take all precautions so as not to give yourself a shock) you'll expect a reading of 180-230v

If the resistance across the solenoids are between the given values and you're getting power to them then the fault lies with the water supply.

If there is no power going to the solenoids at the start of a programme then you need to check wiring back to the CCU for continuity. If the continuity proves ok then you'll need to replace the programme timer mate

Whirlpool AWO/D4305 Washing Machine. The "Water


Hi from retired Englishman in SW France,
Providing that the tap is turned fully on AND the hoses are not kinked or squashed at the back, this is symptomatic of a malfunctioning water control valve- the hot water one, if the washer is hot and cold fill, and the cold one if it is just cold fill!
Sorry but it needs a service call ;-0(
Good luck,

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.

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.
