Question about Kenmore Elite 45986 Front Load Washer
"F/H" this indicates that either have no water coming into the washer, or very little water.
If you have NO water coming into the wash tub check the following:
- Inlet water valve may be clogged. Clean inlet screens if necessary.
- Make sure water taps are on (not trying to insult your intelligence, but I've seen it happen).
- Check inlet hoses for kinks or clogs.
If you HAVE water filling the wash tub check the following:
- Make sure you don't have a siphoning problem. Click the following link for intructions: http://www.fixya.com/support/r587481-prevent_washer_siphoning
- Verify Drain Pump operation.
- Verify flowmeter operation.
- Verify the Pressure Switch hoses are intact and connected properly.
UNPLUG the washer and take the lower panel under the door off by removing the three screws under the bottom edge. HINT: Propping the front feet of the washer up can make access much easier. I use a couple small blocks of wood. With the screws removed, the panel should drop down then come off. If it sticks, tap either side and it should come free.
There should be a tech sheet directly behind the panel or attached to one of the interior cabinet walls that explains all the error codes and how to troubleshoot. It also explains how to perform diagnostics and where to locate certain components.
I hope this provides you with some aanswers. Please post back if you can't find the tech sheet and/or need further assistance.
