Hi


Thanks for using FixYa. Error code F/H means no water was 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. It can also happen 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. You’ll need to Press PAUSE/CANCEL twice to clear the display. Please do rate the solution if the issue is resolved or else revert for further assistance.


Thanks
Rylee

Whirlpool duet flashing f and h


First try turning off the machine for 30 minutes. Then check your inlet valve. Shut off valve, switch off machine & see if the water comes full flow. Check the fine filters on the machine inlet entry, they could be blocked, clean out.
The FH indicates a fill failure and this is usually caused by a bad water valve, flow meter or pressure switch.
One key to determining the cause of the FH error is how fast the error comes up in a cycle. If the error appears within 1 or 2 minutes then the most likely cause will be the water valve or flow meter.
If the error doesn't appear for several minutes then the pressure switch can be the source of the problem.
Both water valves must be turned on and working. Even if a cold wash is selected at some point during the fill the hot water valve will be energized and if there is no water then the FH error will show up. Sometimes a consumer will turn the hot water valve off to save energy but you can't turn one valve off on some washers.
Inlet valves can be purchased thru the net and fitted by you easily.

Hi

Error code FH appears when No water is detected entering machine or Pressure switch trip is 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. Press PAUSE/CANCEL twice to clear the display. If there is no water entering the unit then make sure that the inlet valves are working fine. You may need to check the continuity at the inlet valves. If the valves are fine then check whether inlet water hoses as they might be plugged. Also check for inlet water screen at the valve. However, if the water is entering into the washer then the Drain pump might not be working. Also inspect the Pressure Switch hose whether it is in good condition and properly connected to Tub and Pressure switch. Also check hoses for leak and inspect the flow meter. Hope this helps...

How do you fix a FH code ( water inlet problem) on a Kenmore Elite HE3t front load washer


The FH indicates a fill failure and this is usually caused by a bad water valve, flow meter or pressure switch.

One key to determining the cause of the FH error is how fast the error comes up in a cycle. If the error appears within a1 or 2 minutes then the most likely cause will be the water valve or flow meter.

If the error doesn't appear foe several minutes then the pressure switch can be the source of the problem.

Both water valves must be turned on and working. Even if a cold wash is selected at some point during the fill the hot water valve will be energized and if there is no water then the FH error will show up.

The first thing I would check is shut off the cold water valve at the wall and remove the hose at the washer.carefully pry out the little screen in the inlet and clean well,reconnect hose and turn water back on FH is a water inlet issue I am hoping that what is happening is that when the washer starts its wash cycle it is probably filling with warm (hot) and cold water at the same time even though it might be mostly hot,but when it comes time to rinse (cold water ) there is not enough to make the computer happy and you get your FH error.. Hope this Helps,,If not your probley looking at a new fill valve assy

The following link may give you a bit more advice on how to troubleshoot the "FH" error code:

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

The problem with this error code is the multiple things that can cause it to be generated. This can often be a bit tricky to troubleshoot. You mentioned you checked the drain pump filter. Keep in mind, if anything had been lodged in the pump impeller for any significant period of time, this could have caused irreparable damge to the pump. If the drain pump is not working, the washer will not begin a wash cycle.

I was going to recommend checking your drain hose placement for a possible siphoning situation, but you stated you had no water coming in. A siphoning situation would allow the washer to attempt to fill, but it will experience problems maintaining the proper water level.

You also mentioned you replaced the water inlet valve. Not to undermine your technical abitlities, but did you install it correctly? Verify your installation again to be sure.

Read through the link provided and look at some of the follow up comments from other users. Although, you say your flowmeter may be good, there seems to be a noted problem with them. One consumer explained to me once to make sure the flowmeter is vertical. If it is horizontal, this can also cause problems. I don't know how true that is, but its worth a try.

Another thing to consider are clogged screens in the water inlet hoses. This could be restricting your water flow. Comments from Andrewgrhogg are especially helpful on how to troubleshoot a possible water inlet valve problem.

I hope I've given you enough the go by. Let me know if you still need assistance.
