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.

Washer fills with water when not in use. Doesn't completely drain and spin cloths, and I get an E10 error code


Hello Lahoma, thank you for your post!
I understand that your Frigidaire washer fills with water, will not drain completely, and is flashing an "E10" error code. The error code stands for your washer fill time is too long. This could be an issue with your water valve, main control, or water pressure. You should check to make sure that your water flow is normal and that your water line is not restricted. This could cause an issue with the way water is distributed within your washer. The water pressure coming into your washer should be at 30 PSI. You can also clear out any false error codes by performing a reset on your washer. In order to reset your washer you need to disconnect power from it for roughly ten minutes. If this does not help resolve your issue I would recommend consulting with a professional technician for a proper diagnosis to be completed. I hope this information is helpful to some degree. -Matt

What does error code f5 mean?


The F5 error code indicates a water temperature problem. The control board circuit is not recognizing a resistance change in the water temperature sensor.

You most likely have a loose connection at the tub sensor , or a bad heater.

Error code "UE" clothes have


UE = Unbalance Error


Laundry load is unbalanced, manually loosen any tangled laundry.
If only one item of clothing needs washing, such as a bathrobe or jeans, the final spin result might be unsatisfactory and an UE error message will be shown in the display. Unbalance error is cleared by POWER switch OFF and back ON.

Thanks for using FixYa !!

Error code shows F71. door is locked and there are clothes in there soaking in water that I need to get out!! what does F71 mean and how do if solve the problem


Hi.

Sorry for the late reply.

F71 points at a connection error between button pad and control board.

Please read the indications in this article: F70 and F71 are two logic board error codes...

If you get similar problems in the future, and machine gets stuck in error mode with clothes inside, empty water from tub disconnecting the drain filter, located behind a panel in front lower side of appliance. After emptying water the door will normally get opened.

Regards.

Within a few minutes of my starting my front loading whirpool, i get the error HF...not sure what to do? It's happened 3 times in a row tonight.


Hi


Thanks for using FixYa. Error code F/H means no water was 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. It can also happen 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. You’ll need to Press PAUSE/CANCEL twice to clear the display. Please do rate the solution if the issue is resolved or post a comment for further assistance.


Thanks

Possible causes for HF error. It is in the cold


Hi


Thanks for using FixYa. You are right, FH error indicates an issue with the water supply; this error occurs when after 30 seconds the control does not detect the water entering the machine and the valves turn off & error code is displayed. Check the cold water inlet valve for any clogs and try to clean it, also clean the screens in the inlet valve. If still it’s not resolved then the only option is to replace the valve. Please do rate the solution if the issue is resolved or post a comment for further assistance.

How to reset the de message


Press the START/PAUSE button and the displayed error code will disappear and the machine will go into pause status.

Power will be turned off automatically and the error code will blink if the error is not resolved within 20 seconds.

It is a door open error and usually caused by a faulty door switch assembly or broken door latch hook.

Make sure the door is firmly closed and avoid overloading the machine. Clothing may come between the door and cause the error.

Feel free to inform me if the error is not resolved. I will guide you how to check the door switch assembly and how to replace it.

What does flashing h f mean


Hi

Thanks for using FixYa. Error HF on your washer 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 there is no water in the unit:-

  • Make sure that both valves at the water source(s) are turned on all the way.
  • Check for plugged or kinked inlet hoses or plugged screens in the inlet valves
  • Check inlet valve operation.

If there is water in the unit:-

  • Check Drain pump operation
  • Pressure Switch Hose is in good condition and properly connected to Tub and Pressure switch.


However, it is also caused by a clogged drain filter.

Step One: Unplug Washer

Step Two: Remove front Panel from Washer

Step Three: Locate Filter Assembly(and be ready to soak up water with a towel)

Step Four: Remove Filter. It’s Gross. Check for some coins, socks, toothpicks,etc.

Step Five: Clean Filter

Step Six: Replace Clean Filter

Step Seven: Reinstall the Front Panel. Run load of clothes.

Please do rate the solution and revert for further assistance.


Thanks

There is a block in your pump, you have to locate it, dismantle it & remove the block. Plug off the wall first.
