CODE FH

If after 30 seconds the control does not detect water entering machine,
the valves will be turned off and the error code will be displayed. Or If
the control has turned the water valves on and after 8 minutes the flow
sensor has detected 10.5 gallons of water passing through it, but has
not detected the pressure switch trip, the valves will be turned off and
the error code will flash.
Press PAUSE/CANCEL twice to clear the display.

Potential Causes
_ If there is no water in the unit:
Make sure that both valves at the water source(s) are turned on all
the way.

inlet valves.

pump all the water out and stop the wash cycle your on
open the door

then turn it back on and hope the software fixes itself
otherwise there is an issue its detecting
like the door interlock is being detected as bad.,..

Kenmore serie 80.does not stop filling water in and does not star


Yeah I've seen that happen a many of times. Take the back of the control panel off and where your load size selector is you'll find a little hose that's suppoed to be attached to the side of it. just reattach it and you'll be back up and running.

Almost all washing machines use a pressure tube that tells the washer when to stop filling with water. If the tube comes off for some reason the washer will never stop filling and that's an instant flood if you don't notice it quick enough. Also a hole or puncture of any kind can be causing ti to never stop filling as well.

Hope this helps

Kenmore HE4T washer won't rinse. Valves open to


An HF Code is a Water Inlet Problem- No or Insufficient Water Supply.

Press Pause/Cancel twice to cancel the cycle. Then, unplug the washer.

Run down the list again:
Make sure faucets are completely turned on.
Make sure the fill vavles (screens where water enter machine) aren't clogged.
Make sure the hoses aren't kinked, etc.

Plug the machine back in. Try another cycle. If the problem still occurs, You may need to replace your Water Fill Valve. Let me know if you need any further assistance.

Water will not stop filling washer


cut power to washer ..does it stop filling? suspect water level control or small hose to it is off ..keeps running in? shut off water to washer and change fill valve where hoses attach..just won't fill to top and start? raise level of drain hose up and be sure it is not too tight in drain pipe to prevent siphoning
