Question about Hoover AL120 Front Load Washer

Cold Water 25-May-08

Hi, I have a Hover SE220 1200 Special Edition. On switching the machine on it would seem that the water pressure entering the machine is no longer strong enough to completely dissolve the washing powder tablet. I have tried changing both water relays for known working ones the same fault. The cold water relay does not work although there is supply power going into the relay and also coming out of the relay (open circuit) on a black lead which goes into the back of the main program switch. The hot water relay has power going into its relay (both supply leads are in parallel) and a return blue lead. The relay works OK and hot water enters the drum etc. What I would like to get hold of is a wiring diagram for the machine and to confirm what the problem is. I am thinking it might be the program switch. I am a sparks by trade but have little experience with Hover washing machines. Many thanks in anticipation. Regards, Brimes1

I know this may seem a little silly of me to ask but have you checked the filters in the back of water valves to see if they are blocked??

Hi. Got some info about the FH error from Whirlool service manual.



F/H

No water detected entering machine or Pressure switch trip not detected.

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.



In my experience the CCU is the problem (control board).

IF the machine has water! If not, check water valve, hose, water tap.

Do it overfill? If thats the case, the pressure switch is gone, its hose has a leak.



Hope this helps you

Hi

Error code FH appears when No water is detected entering machine or Pressure switch trip is not detected. 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 there is no water entering the unit then make sure that the inlet valves are working fine. You may need to check the continuity at the inlet valves. If the valves are fine then check whether inlet water hoses as they might be plugged. Also check for inlet water screen at the valve. However, if the water is entering into the washer then the Drain pump might not be working. Also inspect the Pressure Switch hose whether it is in good condition and properly connected to Tub and Pressure switch. Also check hoses for leak and inspect the flow meter. Hope this helps...

My Hoover First Edition keeps filling with water to the point of it pouring out of the door. It seems to be draining fine, but just keeps letting in short bursts of water, which don't seem to stop. ...


This seems quite likely to be a fault of the WATER LEVEL SENSOR. So since the pressure activated switch is not working even when the set water level is reached the water overflows.
Drain the water out of the washer and remove the level sensor which is located on the rim of the drum which has a tube feeding water to a pressure activated switch- the diaphragm could have punctured or failed on the switch.
You can bypass the switch by shorting to see if the machine starts and works , if so change the switch.

My Maytag Neptune FAV6800 washing machine overfills on the rinse cycle. Pulling the electric power does not stop the water flow. I have to turn off the water at the faucet feeding the hose. It seems to...


If you pull the power to the machine and water continues to flow then the water inlet valve is stuck open. You will need to replace the water inlet valve. The Service manual will step you thru the process.


FAV6800A/FAV9800A Service Manual for reference. Sears Parts Direct for reference.


The water inlet valve is p/n 25001046 Substitution: 12002242 Water valve shop around for best price.


Is this Cold water inlet valve issue? If so and you only do Cold water wash/rinse like me you could switch the fill hose connections from hot to cold to hot at the faucet. Turn the hot water faucet valve off and select Warm/Warm temp selection and you will be filling with cold water wash/rinse. Maybe that would hold you over until you replace the Water Inlet Valve assembly.


You can check out your pressure switch transitions as I had this poster do for his issue at this link http://www.fixya.com/support/t5471295-washer_fills_water_begins_agitate_but


His issue seems to be a definite stuck pressure switch not water inlet valve such as yours. Check to make sure your pressure switch is OK by watching the fill point transitions as I mention in the post.


If you machine is a series 12 or above the Low and Mid fill pressure switch transitions will toggle at the same time. Series 12 and above us a 2 level pressure switch. Series 10 and 1 use a 3 level pressure switch.


Good Luck………….. D*ick

Leaking washing machine and error report


Hi, if the washer is new I would have Whirlpool come in and look at it because you may invalidate the warranty if you open it. But here is what the error code means should you need this info. If you have any other questions please feel free to comment. Mike

"F/H" No water detected entering machine or Pressure switch trip not detected.

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.
Or
If the control has turned the water valves on and after 8 minutes the flow meter has detected 10.5 gallons of water passing through it, but has not detected the pressure switch trip, the valves will be turned off and the error code will flash.

When filling the machine, the water does not shut off.


you probably have a tiny hole in the hose that leads to the pressure switch. you can pull the hose off and see if youcan locate the hole and if the hole is close to one of the ends you can just cut that section off but if it is in the middle you will need to replace the hose
