FH= 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.
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.
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.
• 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
• 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 operation

Machine not working (whirlpool duet fron load) error code f21

This error code indicates that drain times are longer than expected. This could be a problem with one of the washer parts including the drain pump itself, how the drain hose enters the stand pipe, or maybe something is stuck somewhere in the drain system and is preventing the water from flowing properly.

Make sure the drain hose is not kinked or clogged. Straighten the hose for adequate water flow. Remove any blockage from the drain hose, drainpipe or utility sink. Use the U-shaped drain hose form on the drain hose, and secure the drain hose.

Remove the three screws that hold the lower access panel in place. Here you will find the pump and the all important sump clean out, or as we like to call it, the coin catcher.

My duet front load washer has an F21 code. The washer does not drain. The manual says to check the drainage hose for a clog. I disconnected it and water runs freely through it. I'm still getting the...

Have you checked the filter, hose, and plumbing where drain hose goes to?

If you have and none of these are blocked then you have a faulty drain pump which will need replacing

Whirlpool Duet Sport wont drain.....?


Remove any kinks in the drain hose. Ensure that the washer is not sitting on the hose.

Inspect the household drain. Remove clogs, if possible. Call a plumber if you cannot remove the clogs.

Check the drain and make sure there is an air gap between the hose and drain. An air gap is necessary to prevent the drain hose from siphoning water.

Clean the pump filter. Open the pump access door. Turn the pump filter counter-clockwise and remove it. Remove dirt and debris. Replace the filter and close the pump access door.

Rearrange the clothing in the load. An unbalanced load can prevent the washer from spinning or draining.

Allow the washer to cool down for two hours. If the washer overheats, it will stop the motor and cool down before restarting.

Close the door completely. The washer will not operate if the door is not securely closed.

I hope the above helps.

Good luck.

Duet won't go into a full spin. had f02 code cleaned filter, checked hoses. just rolls at slow spin then reverses.

"F02" is a Long Drain error. If the drain time exceeds 8 minutes this error code will be displayed. In addition, a "SUDS" error may also be generated as a secondary error. This is an indication of a drain pump problem and/or clog in the drain line. You will need to check the following:

1. Check the drain hose to make sure it is not kinked or clogged.
2. Check the electrical connections to the pump and ensure the pump is running.
3. Remove the drain pump filter and check for foreign objects and/or debris.

To check the drain pump, click on the following link for step-by-step instructions.

If the above procedures do not correct the problem, it is recommended by the manufacturer to replace the drain pump

Whirlppol Duet washer will not drain.

It sounds like you may have a kinked drain hose or an obstruction in the hose coming out of the tub to the pump. The pump filter screen may also be clogged.

Are you getting any error codes?

Getting error F 02 and a beeping from washing machine.

F 02 Is a slow or long drain.
Things to look for kinked drain hose, Plugged or obstructed drain hose, Possible pump filter screen clogged, Least unlikely is a drain pump failure.
The pump filter screen is the most common it gets plugged with lint, coins, hair etc. It can be cleaned by the owner however is is a very dirty messy job and if you are not very careful you can end up with water everywhere. If you want to attempt it let me know. If there is anything else I can do to help please let me know.

Error codes


Did you inspect the filter for clogs I have seen this happen many times The filter is located behind front lower panel and can be white in color follow the hoses its before the pump. I have seen the filter clogged and give these type of symptoms

but here is error code F27 out of the maintenance manual
If the overflow contact on the pressure switch is closed for more than
60 seconds, an Overflow Condition occurs. In an
overflow condition, the door remains locked and the drain pump runs
constantly, even if PAUSE/CANCEL is pressed twice and the display is
cleared. Turn off hot and cold water faucets and unplug the unit before

1. Check the drain hose and make sure it is not plugged or kinked.
2. Unplug washer or disconnect power.
3. Check wire harness connections to the drain pump, pressure switch,
water inlet value, and Central Control Unit (CCU).
4. Check/clean drain pump filter of foreign objects.
5. Check for drain pump failure.
6. Check the inlet valve for proper shut off.
7. Check the pressure switch for proper operation.
