That error code can be the result of no water detected entering machine after 30 seconds or pressure switch (water level control) activation not detected after 8 minutes of filling.

If there is no water in the machine at the time, make sure that both water taps are turned on, check for kinked fill hoses or plugged sediment screens in them and verify the water fill valves are operating.

If there is water in the unit, verify drain pump and water pressure switch are operating properly, the pressure switch hose is in good condition and properly connected to the pressure switch. Also, make sure the water is not siphoning out of the machine prematurely due to an improperly installed or kinked drain hose.

That error might also be caused by too much suds in the wash water like can result from using non-HE detergents.

Fh showing on my kenmore washer


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 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 this washer.

Inlet valves can be purchased thru the net and fitted by you easily.

Washing machine flashing FH and beeping


This should take 30 minutes: Remove the panel that is located below the front door, there are 3 small screws located at the bottom that hold this... you will see the water pump, which has a access screw plug. Unscrew this, its like a filter, you may see stuff, like coins, socks, etc, remove and clean out, then put
everything back... this should fix the issue.

After 27 minutes into wash get an FH error


The FH code on the Whirlpool Duet washers indicates that the unit is not detecting water fill at the flowmeter. The flowmeter is sits right in front of the water inlet valve and is attached via a hose and is off to the left of the central control unit (ccu). If the washer seems to be filling alright, check out the wiring from the flowmeter to the control unit. Make sure all connections are clean and tight. These connections have been known to jiggle loose and cause this code. Hope this helped and best wishes.

A few seconds into a wash cycle the letters F H flash and beep and the cycle won't continue. what does this mean??


fh means fill hose make sure that water is comeing out of each hose by detaching from washer and filling a bucket. does water come out of hot and cold? check and make sure your fill valve washers are not clogged with sand. if neither of these things fix it I believe you have a bad flow meter. take the kick panel off by removing the 3 torque screws look to the right side you will see the tech sheet. read the fh error code. let me know how it goes. Do you have flood stop hoses if so get ride of them right away they cause a ton of problems with all washers.

HATE TO SAY IT BUT THE BOARD WOULD NEED REPLACEMENT.BEEPING NORMALLY INDICATES A FAULT CONDITION WHICH WOULD STOP THE CYCLE(WASH) OR THE COMPLETION OF A CYCLE.
