Hi! Please help! Flashing F H repeatedly...

Thanks to all who are reading this...I use my washer a lot due to having 3 kids with autism and my washer stops after about a minute and just flashes F H repeatedly...Our house payment has recently doubled (since Dec) and we really don't have the money to call a service person, so I am hoping that I will be able to fix this problem without having to call someone out. Thanks in advance for any info you can give me. Thanks so much!

FH is an indication the the machine is not sensing enough water flow into the machine....
The only thing you can do without taking the machine apart is to disconnect the water hoses to the back of your machine and inspect the filter screens for any type of debris that might be restricting water flow into the machine. Typically, the cold water line is more susceptible to foreign matter than the hot waterline.

Washer stops mid cycle, flashing LR


Hi

Thanks for using FixYa. Lr means locked rotor, this issue occurs due to locked rotors, you'll need to check the rotor wiring and windings. If the wiring is good and windings are not burnt then you'll need to replace your motor and motor control board. These are sold as one unit, it is a 3 phase motor and one of the phases is bad. A little power surge can damage the boards. Please rate the solution if the issue is resolved else post a comment for further assistance.

Thanks

Have a 3 yr washer that at the end of the wash it stops!


Hi,

Thanks for writing to Fixya.com.

This sound like a loose connection in the wiring in the machine. The probability is that the vibration from the machine is enough to work some connections loose. If you have someone competent to do this, then check that all connectors are pushed firmly onto their circuit boards.
Thanks for contacting Fixya and please accept the solution if it has helped you.

Water leaking from bottom, lots of suds.


Hi


Thanks for using FixYa. This may happen due one or more than one of these issues with your washer--
Probably there is something(coins, socks, dirt, debris, etc) stuck inside the drain filter of your washer. You'll need to check the drain filter. To access the drain filter. To check the drain pump follow these steps:





Unplug the washer to completely disconnect electrical power.Remove the bottom front service panel as shown in the first image below.


Also check your drain hose for a kink or clog. Check the washer house drain for a clog or restriction. Test the washer to see if it will drain properly.


This issue can also be due to clogged drain pump or drain filter, due to which the hose have developed leak. This will cause suds


Please rate the solution if you find it useful and helpful.


Thanks

Flashing FL


Hi

If you have error code FL it means flood condition i.e. FL flashes if any overfill condition occurs. This condition occurs when excessive water in the tub causes the overfill switch to trip. The control must realize that the trip was due to an overfill condition instead of a suds lack condition in order for FL to be displayed. With an overfill condition, the beeper repeats a warning every 10 seconds with no time-out. The pump is cycled in drain mode for 30 seconds on, 30 seconds off until the overfill switch resets or power is discontinued to the unit. Press STOP/CANCEL to clear the display.

If its LF which means long fill i.e. when the water fill time exceeds ten minutes, the water valves are turned off and LF is flashed. Press STOP/CANCEL to clear the display.

Please do rate the solution and revert for further assistance.

Thanks

Don't you hate it when you can find lots of people with the same problem, but no one with an answer?

Well I have the same problem. I cracked open the front and found the service manual. Not sure what it does, but holding in "Hi Temp" plus "Start/Cancel" for either 3 seconds or 0.5 seconds is supposed to do something. 3 seconds seemed to reset it, and now it's washing.

Good luck.
