Question about Kenmore HE3T Washer
UNPLUG the washer for at least 30 minutes. This will reset the Central Control Unit (CCU), which is the main control board for the washer. Make sure the water valves are on and plug the washer back in. If the washer still does not clear after a CCU reset, there is a diagnostic procedure you can run that, not only checks all the basic washer functions, but will also clear most momentary program glitches. Each one of these washers comes with a tech sheet inside. The tech sheet lists all error code definitions, troubleshooting data, diagnostics procedures and wiring diagrams. I mention the tech sheet because you may need it to troubleshoot this error code.
To access, you will need to remove the lower toe panel under the door. The access screws are located under the bottom front edge of the panel. You may have to prop the two front feet of the washer up for better access ( a 2x4 works well for this). With the screws removed, the panel should drop down, then come off. If the tech sheet isn't directly behind the panel, it will be affixed to one of the interior cabinet walls.
Read through the information provided and if you have questions, please post back with your complete MODEL NUMBER and let me know. I hope you find this information helpful.

Tips for a great answer:
Welcome to FixYa
FH error code is displayed when the control detects no water entering the machine. To clear this error press and hold the PAUSE/CANCEL button twice. You can then check if the water inlet valve is fine and not clogged with foreign particles, try to clean it. If the water inlet valve appears to be fine then check if the pressure switch hose is properly connected to the pressure switch & tub. Please get back to me if you have any questions.

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. Sometimes a consumer will turn the hot water valve off to save energy but you can't turn one valve off on this washer.
