    I have the same issue and can't see anything obviously wrong with it. I even took apart the gun and all looks fine.

I had the same problem with mine and ended up taking it to an authorised repairer to sort out. If I remember correctly the problem was due to dirt getting into some part of the system. Sorry I can't be of more help.

What does F20 on the washer mean?


Whirlpool uses a flow meter that detects the flow of water entering the washer. If this flow meter does not detect the correct amount of water entering the washer it will sound the F20 error code. Often this repair can be made with out calling an appliance repairman and without ordering parts. Start by removing the washer fill hoses; both the cold and the hot water hoses. Check for proper water pressure from the house. To do so, turn the water on and put the hose inside the washer or a bucket.


If water pressure is good, check the water valve inlet screens. Most residential washing machines have inlet screens. The screens prevent minerals from clogging the solenoid. With the hoses removed, you can visually inspect the water inlet screens. If the water valve screens are clear the inlet valve with the screens itself will need to be replaced. To replace the water valve, remove the top of the washing machine. Three screws hold the top down. The screws that hold the top down are on the back of the top panel. Once removed the top will slide back and off. Now remove the wire harness that connects to the valve. One screw holds the valve to the washers cabinet. Removing the screw and sliding the valve over will release the valve from the back panel enabling you to complete your repair.

One last thing to check is the fill hoses. These front load duet washers call for a lot of water quickly. So if you have stainless steel braided flood-safe hoses, they will trip for no reason at all. Replace these flood safe hoses with more traditional hoses. If the hoses are good and you haven't found anything slowing down the flow of the water, your electronic inlet water valve is just faulty on the back of your washer and will need to be replaced because it's just not allowing water flow into the washer correctly.

Lgwm2032hw does not drain once tub gets full. how


The first thing to do is to empty the washer by allowing the water to flow out of the drain hose by gravity...If it won't flow you have a blockage and you'll have to check the pump filter which is accessed via the small door at floor level (or behind the kick plate) Unscrew the pump cover and check the filter..Water can and will flow out if you haven't emptied the washer. There may be a small hose which next to pump cover which allows controlled draining....Good luck....Nomess

Washer- Hot water wont stop flowing


you will have to replace the multi valve inside the washer where the lines come in, not too hard if you can use tools and find all the hold own bolts/ screws. the part can be a little pricey so you may want to take it to a repair shop. make sure that you UNPLUG first!

Not working


Disconnect water hoses from machine. Inspect the filter screen on the cold and hot water connection. DO NOT REMOVE SCREEN. If full of debris, use a spray bottle with a hard spray to remove debris. If unable to remove debris or water flow is still slow, replace valve.

If you need further assistance, let me know

My machine will not rinse cloths. The cycly stops once it gets to rinse and it makes a lite buzzing noise.What could it be?


Most washers today are cold rinse only. The buzzing noise you hear may be the cold water valve.
1. Check cold water to make sure it is on.
2. Remove cold water hose from back of machine. Inspect washer cold water valve for debris. Can usually be cleaned with spray bottle with hard spray.
3. Cold water valve has failed.

If you need further assistance please let me know..

FH error


You are correct..
FH is an indication the the machine is not sensing enough water flowing into the machine....
The only thing you can do without taking the machine apart is to disconnect the water hoses to the back of your machine and inspect the filter screens for any type of debris that might be restricting water flow into the machine. Typically, the cold water line is more susceptible to foreign matter than the hot waterline.
If screens appear OK then the problem may be with the water fill valve, water flow sensor, (flowmeter) water pressure switch or blockage in the water pressure switch hose.

However.. if everything is fine using just cold, verify hot water for proper pressure or possible kinks in the hose.

Karcher Pressure washer


Hi
don't know if this will help, but when I use mine, to start the pressure up I have to turn the nozzle to fine spray then turn it to the power spray and it works every time, shouldn't have to do this but I got it for nothing.
