My wf310 1100 spin will not do a high speed spin


hi, there may be not enough water draining out on the last cycle before it spins so i'd give the pump a good luck over also check the filter if it has 1, and check the drain hose. the other fault could be the module control board this controls the motor speed hope it helps

FH IS FLASHING ON THE WASHER AND IT HAD STOPPED WORKING ONLY 5 MNUTES INTO ITS CYCLE


Hello,

The FH error code means the computer on the control board didnt detect any water entering the washer..sometimes it doesnt detect the water entering because the filter screens on the water inlet valve are clogged with sediment and water is having a hard time entering the washer.

The filter screens can be checked by turning off water at the faucets and disconnecting the fill hoses from the back of the machine and pop the scrrens out of where the hoses connect at the washer and check for blockage in them. If they are found to be clean check the water coming out of the hoses before connecting them back to the washer...if the screens are clean and water pressure is good out of the hoses the part of the washer called the FLOW METER would need to be replaced

I have a FH that comes on the display any ideas? please It washes to a certain point then stops showing the display but if i then put it on drain it empties ok


Might want to start with this.

No water detected entering machine or Pressure switch trip not detected.

If after 30 seconds the control does not detect water entering machine and then 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 meter 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:
    1.Make sure that both valves at the water source(s) are turned on all the way.
    2.Check for plugged or kinked inlet hoses or plugged screens in the inlet valves
    3.Verify inlet valve operation
  • If there is water in the unit:
    1.Verify Drain pump operation
    2.Pressure Switch Hose is in good condition and properly connected to Tub and Pressure switch
  • Verify there is not a siphon problem
  • Verify wire harness connections to:Inlet Valves, Pressure Switch, Drain Pump, Flow Meter, and Central Control Unit (CCU)
  • Check all hoses for possible leaks
  • Verify pressure switch operation
  • Verify flow meter operation
  • Verify CCU operatiion

Keep getting FH beeping problem...even with NO detergent...anybody got an idea? tried running a cycle in sanitation, with cup of bleach to see if its clogged due to my well water high in iron...


Hi,

"FH" 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. Check whether the water taps are turned on sufficiently, the inlet hoses are not kinked, the water inlet valve is not clogged, you don't have a siphoning issue, and/or the drain pump is working.


Thank you !!

FH, in mid cycle most likely your pump is blocked, hit drain/spin and see if water drains, if not clean pump

Washer agitates, drains OK, but spin doesn't start


Timer is defective. Your unit has a netural drain. When finished agitating, the shuts down and then starts up reversing to drain and spin. On the initial reverse start, the water drains without the transmission spinning. After a timed period 3-4 minutes, the timer is supposed to pause, stopping the motor for a few seconds. When the motor stops again, the transmission shift to the spin cycle and when the timer resumes power tothe motor it should spin. You are doing the same thing when you lift the lid...stopping the timer and then the tranny shifts and when you set the lid down, the washer spins. Replace the timer.......
