Hi,

To Start with, this is a Common Error Message on this Model.

The F14 is this: EEPROM Error

The Central Control Unit (CCU) receives it’s data from an EEPROM onboard the CCU. If there is an error reading this data it will cause this error.So its likely you'll need a new CCU board. Check your owners manual, some models have up to a 5 years parts warranty on that CCU.

Note - Try to Reset the Washer by keeping it Unplug for Few Minutes, say 30 Minutes and then Turn it ON.

Let me know,if needed further assistance.

Hope i helped you.

Thanks for using ' Fixya ' and have a nice day!!

HF error on display


An FH error often means that the machine doesn't see the water coming into the machine (or that the water pressure is too low). If the water has been flowing into the washer for 8 minutes, then the pressure switch is faulty. (The unit shuts off the water flow and gives the error to avoid flooding.) Press Pause/Cancel Twice.

If there was no water to the machine, check that the inlet water valves are open. Check the inlet hose filters for clogs and that the hoses aren't kinked. You may want to change your water hoses in case they sealed themselves against leaks. Also check your incoming water pressure.

If there was water in the washer, check that the drain pump is functioning (and that nothing is clogging the pump filter/coin catcher). Also check that the discharge hose isn't positioned lower than the water level in the washer. This will cause a siphon problem where the water will flow in and out of the washer continuously.

Disconnect the washer from the power and make sure that all of the wiring for the inlet valves, pressure switch, drain pump and flow valve have no breaks in them. Make sure that the inlet and outlet hoses inside the washer are not leaking. (The connection between the hose and the drain pump and the hoses to the washer tub can leak.)

After this set of tests, reconnect the power and check the pressure switch, the flow meter and the CCU (main control board). Replace any faulty part.

You may want to consult a repair person for some of these tests and repairs. If the washer is under warranty, get the unit serviced if the problem isn't in the hoses.

I hope this helps.

The HE washer started flashing F Then H and said 14 minutes remaining. I tried stopping it, no avail, I tried opening the door, Couldn't, I even unplugged it for over a half an hour and it goes back...


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.
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 starts and runs for about 10 minutes. Then stops and gives error message HF


Hello & Welcome to FixYa

FH error code is displayed when the control detects no water entering the machine. To clear this error press and hold the PAUSE/CANCEL button twice. You can then check if the water inlet valve is fine and not clogged with foreign particles, try to clean it. If the water inlet valve appears to be fine then check if the pressure switch hose is properly connected to the pressure switch & tub. Please get back to me if you have any questions.

My Kenmore HE3t was run for more than 10 minutes with water valves turned off. Now it will not reset. How do I reset the machine?


UNPLUG the washer for at least 30 minutes. This will reset the Central Control Unit (CCU), which is the main control board for the washer. Make sure the water valves are on and plug the washer back in. If the washer still does not clear after a CCU reset, there is a diagnostic procedure you can run that, not only checks all the basic washer functions, but will also clear most momentary program glitches. Each one of these washers comes with a tech sheet inside. The tech sheet lists all error code definitions, troubleshooting data, diagnostics procedures and wiring diagrams. I mention the tech sheet because you may need it to troubleshoot this error code.

To access, you will need to remove the lower toe panel under the door. The access screws are located under the bottom front edge of the panel. You may have to prop the two front feet of the washer up for better access ( a 2x4 works well for this). With the screws removed, the panel should drop down, then come off. If the tech sheet isn't directly behind the panel, it will be affixed to one of the interior cabinet walls.


Read through the information provided and if you have questions, please post back with your complete MODEL NUMBER and let me know. I hope you find this information helpful.

Error code f20 on kenmore he3t washer


"F20" is a No Water Detect error. It is an indication that you either have no water coming into the washer, or very little water at all. If the pressure switch has not tripped after 6 minutes, the error code is displayed. This can be a potential problem with the following:


If you have NO water in the wash tub, check the following:

- Inlet water valve may be clogged. Clean inlet screens if necessary.
- Make sure water taps are on.
- Check inlet hoses for kinks or clogs.

If you HAVE water filling the wash tub, check the following:

- Make sure you don't have a siphoning problem. Click the following link for instructions:


http://www.fixya.com/support/r587481-prevent_washer_siphoning

- Verify Drain Pump operation.
- Verify the Pressure Switch hoses are intact and connected properly.
- Verify wire harness connections at the pressure switch, inlet valves, drain pump and Central Control Unit (CCU).

To access the Drain Pump - UNPLUG the washer and take the lower panel under the door off by removing the three screws under the bottom edge. HINT: Propping the front feet of the washer up can make access much easier. I use a couple small blocks of wood. With the screws removed, the panel should drop down then come off. If it sticks, tap either side and it should come free. The pump is located directly under the wash tub in the front of the washer. Verify the electrical connections are good and that the pump is running. Click on the following link to check the pump for obstructions:

http://www.fixya.com/support/r385845-checking_drain_pump_in_whirlpool_duet

To access the Pressure Switch - remove the three screws in the top panel along the back of the washer. With the screws removed, the panel should slide back, then, lift off. The pressure switch is located on the right-hand side of the washer in the rear. It is a round plastic device with electrical connections and a plastic air hose attached. Verify the electrical connections are intact, and the air hose is attached and not cracked or leaking.

To access the Central Control Unit (CCU) - with the top panel of the washer removed, the CCU is located directly behind, and just above the rear of the wash tub. There should be a tech sheet directly behind the lower panel or attached to one of the interior cabinet walls. Please refer to this sheet to learn how to perform diagnostics and to verify the wire connections at the CCU. In addition, the tech sheet will also assist in how to locate the components mentioned, and the specific measurements required determining if the components are good or bad.

Error code h-f


Krysil,

I have the service technician's guide to the error codes here. The code you're getting is F/H. The Explanation of this error code is "No Water Detected Entering Machine or Pressure Switch Trip Not Detected."

"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."

"Possible Causes / Procedure
  • If there is no water in the unit:
    - Make sure that both valves at the water source 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 that there is not a siphon problem.
  2. Unplug the 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.
Whew! Well, that's what the service tech manual said. Hope that helps! By the way, I found this service tech manual behind the lower front panel of my washer, attached to the right side of the frame. Yours might be in there too!
