The FH code in the owners manual talks of a water supply . The F/H code means the unit isn’t detecting water fill at the flowmeter. The flow-meter sits just in front of inlet valve and is attached via a hose, and off to the left of the CCU. If your washer is filling ok, check the wiring from the flow meter to the control board; I’ve seen this harness jiggle loose and cause problems. check figure for flowmeter location:-- code fh is displayed - ca83b83.jpg
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 operation.

F and H keep coming up on screen


The information provided is general. For information specific to your washer please resubmit the question, including the model number.

The "F" is at the beginning of all error codes. This indicates the a Fault has taken place. The second number or letter indicates what the Fault is.

FH : Is displayed when no water has been detected entering the washer.

If the control has turned on the fill valve and after 8 minutes the flow meter has detected 10.5 gallons of water and not detected a pressure switch trip, the valve will be turned off and the failure code will flash in the display

Unplug the washer from its electrical source and wait for 30 seconds.
Replug the cord into the electrical source and try to start a normal cycle or a cancel drain cycle.
The machine should start the pump out mode and empty the water.

If, after 30 second, the machine has not detected water entering into the machine, the valves will be shut off and the failure code of FH will be displayed.

Check all hose connection and valves, both hot and cold, are turned on completely.
Verify that water is at the fill hose connections at the back of the washer.
The main control has sensed a component failure in the machine and will be needing a diagnostic visit for a possible repair or replacement.

Keep getting FH code. Have cleaned inlets and checked hoses. Water is coming in,sounds right but then goes to FH again.


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...

What does code fh mean?


FH error indicates that either you have no water coming into the washer, or very little water. Since you can see it filling, the error indicates low flow. A flow meter in the unit detects if 10.5 gallons fills the tub within 8 minutes; yours must not be. This will turn off the inlet valves and the error code will be displayed. Check the follow link for additional details: support/error_code_HF

Hope this helps (remember to rate and comment this answer).

Keepscomingup FH checkedwaterpipes hosesinlet filters


This error code is for inlet water to the machine.If the flow meter doesn't recognize 10.5 gallons in 8 minutes the Fh symbol will be displayed.If the screen going into the valves are clear both for hot and cold water ,no kinked water lines and both hot and cold water valves are on; one of the valves may be bad.
