What does the F and H mean

Do you mean "HF"?
According to the manual HF means water inlet problem.
-Select PAUSE/CANCEL twice to cancel the cycle. Unplug washer.
-Are faucets completely turned on?
-Are screens at inlet hose connection clogged?
-Are hoses kinked?
-Are inlet hoses frozen?
Plug in washer, re-select cycle and press START. If the problem remains, call for service.
Or you can post the problem at Repair Clinic. They might be able to help further, and they sell parts if you need.

My washer keeps flashing and saying FH or Hf ... what does this mean?

Check to make sure you are getting a good supply of water to the washer. Remove hoses at the washer and make sure the filter screens are not clogged.

I have a Maytag front loader Mod. MFW9700SQ1 - I get an error code of H and then F flashing. The machine stops washing. What could be the problem?


Error HF means that a water inlet problem has occurred. 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 the machine is not filling then check whether both valves at water source are turned ON and inlet hose are not plugged. If the machine is filling fine then chec the pressure switch hose and the drain hose for siphoning (also make sure water is not flowing back to the machine from drain hose). Check wire harness connections to: Inlet Valves, Pressure Switch, Drain Pump, Flow Meter, and Central Control Unit (CCU). Hope this helps... Please post back if you need more information.

What does the error code HF mean?

It means you have an insufficient water supply problem. My Maytag is doing the same thing. I'm currently only using cold water to wash clothes and I have the valve for my hot water supply closed because it's leaking. So...if my washer is set to use anything but cold water it will stop mid-cycle and display the same thing because when it tries to "pull" hot/warm water it's not getting any. Make sure your valves are opened up completely, and if they are make sure water is actually coming out of both of them. You may have to disconnect them from the washer to check. Hope this helps!!

Error Code HF. What do I do to resolve this error. The machine has clothes in it and they are soaked

Please refer to the following link for a full explanation of the "FH" error:

I know the instruction says Whirlpool and Kenmore model washers, but I believe this fault applies to some Maytag models as well. Read through the link thoroughly and if you still require assistance, please let me know. Rule out the easy possibilities first.

Kenmore Elite washing machine

This code means its not getting a sufficient water supply. I was doing a cold wash and noticed it was sucking down some hot water, so shut off the hot. MISTAKE, after a little bit the HF code came up. Apprently it likes to decide for itself just how cold is cold. Darned Computers.

To make a short story long, when I shut off the hot, it apparently shredded the washer and sent the remnants down to the little filter thingy at the washer itself, whereupon they reassembled themselves into a clog, once again giving me the HF code.

(Check your user manual Troubleshooting section. I think it says to press Pause/Cancel twice)
