Hi from retired Englishman in SW France,
Whirlpool's 'FH' decodes as 'no water inlet'- I suspect 'Hot Fault'!
If you have checked that the hot and cold water taps are turned on fully and the hoses are not kinked or squashed at the back, it is worth while checking both the hot and cold water inlet filters. Turn the taps off and remove both hoses at the washer end. Inside each inlet port there is normally a little filter which should just slide out. Clean if necessary and replace each one and the hoses. If after turning the taps back on there is no improvement, the problem is symptomatic of a malfunctioning hot or cold water control valve. Sorry but it needs a service call ;-0(
If this has assisted you please consider a 4 thumbs up for the rating.
Thanks and good luck,
John C

NO WATER DETECTED ENTERING MACHINE OR PRESSURE SWITCH TRIP NOT DETECTED. The pressure switch is not tripped after 6 minutes. Possible Causes/Procedure 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. – Verify that the pressure switch hose is in good condition and properly connected to tub and pressure switch. 1. Verify there is not a siphon problem. 2. Press PAUSE/CANCEL twice to clear the display. The machine will drain for 3 minutes before unlocking the door. 3. Unplug washer or disconnect power. 4. Verify wire harness connections to inlet valves, pressure switch, drain pump and Central Control Unit (CCU). 5. Check all hoses for possible leaks. 6. Plug in washer or reconnect power 7. Verify pressure switch operation. 8. Verify CCU operation by running a Diagnostic Test or any cycle.

Whirlpool Front Loader GHW9150 PW

Yes, I fixed it after 10 hours of attempting. I called Whirlpool who in turn told me to call a Tech out to the house. I talked with a Whirlpool Rep who was at our local Lowe's, she in turn called their Whirlpool Guru who told her, there is NO override or manual way to fix the lock up unit/problem other than calling a Technician.

Well, I beg to differ. I took the panel off a 2nd time, looked for a pull, which there wasn't one, so I keeped feeling around the lock from the inside of the washer. I looked for anything that would move, press together, pull down and walla, bingo, I found a piece of metal that I pulled on and it released the door!!!!!!! Yahoo, then while the door was opened, I plugged the unit into the AC, it recognized that the door was unclocked, then I turned it to spin and rinse after it started flashing the F 11 code. I knew from this site, that it meant my soap had leaked into the unit. After running the rinse cycle, I am so proud to report that the machine is back up and running!!!!!

I thought, how awful not to have an external manual release, what if a kid got locked in the unit. Yes, a kid. My brother and I use to tumble in the Kids do, do dumb things. So even if Whirlpool tells you it can't be done,without a technician YOU can do it!!!! I'm a 60 year old woman and proud of it....Thanx FixYa
