This code means its not getting a sufficient water supply. I was doing a cold wash and noticed it was sucking down some hot water, so shut off the hot. MISTAKE, after a little bit the HF code came up. Apprently it likes to decide for itself just how cold is cold. Darned Computers.

To make a short story long, when I shut off the hot, it apparently shredded the washer and sent the remnants down to the little filter thingy at the washer itself, whereupon they reassembled themselves into a clog, once again giving me the HF code.

(Check your user manual Troubleshooting section. I think it says to press Pause/Cancel twice)

If you still know where the brochure is I would look in the chapter "troubleshooting"
If the brochure is not where it should be, I would "google" the brand name and the no of the appliance More likly than not you will find the answer there. This method has helped me very often.

Here's a link that explains the "FH" error code:

http://www.fixya.com/support/r615354-fh_error_code_whirlpool_duet_kenmore

Read through these steps and let me know if you require further assistance. HINT: I'm assuming you have water entering the wash tub since you mentioned the washer will begin a wash cycle. Check for a siphoning issue or Drain Pump problem first. These are the simplest items to check. I hope this helps you.

PS There should be a tech sheet located inside you washer behind the lower panel under the door, or along the interior cabinet wall that explains all the error codes and how to troubleshoot. This may also assist you further.

Try shutting off the machine. Switch off Usually the door opens in 2 minutes or so. Do not force open the door. There may be instructions in your book to open the door manually. It could mean unscrewing somewhere.
