The central control unit does not detect water entering the machine 30 seconds after the water valves are opened or the pressure switch did not trip 8 minutes after the flow meter detected 10.5 gallons of water passing through it. The problem is therefore either the flow meter, water inlet valves, or the pressure switch.

Check the level of water inside the tub when the error code flashes. The pressure has not tripped if there's enough water inside the tub. Verify the condition of the pressure switch hose and the pressure switch itself. Make sure the hose is not kinked or clogged. Disconnect the hose from the switch then blow air forcefully down the hose and then the switch. You should hear the switch click when blowing air into it. Replace the switch if the problem persists.

The problem is in the water inlet valves if there's no water at all that has entered the tub. Replace the valve assembly if that is the case. But if there's some water that has entered the tub, then the problem is in the flow meter. Check to make sure that the flow meter pinwheel is oriented in the vertical position. Remove the flow meter and blow air through it to free the pinwheel from possible stuck up. Replace the flow meter if the pinwheel is broken or frozen.

HF code on hayward 200fdn pool heater?replaced gas valve still have same code.What now?


HF
Flame present with gas valve "OFF" error
If flame is sensed with the gas valve off the control will go into lockout. The blower will run until error condition is corrected. When corrected, control will run blower for 5 s then automatically restart after 2 minutes.
the error might be caused by a faulty flame sensor. i have heard of this happening the other way (carbon blocks sensor causing no ignite)

Error message HF


o 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.

Check/Repair:


Press PAUSE/CANCEL twice to clear the display.


  • If there is no water in the unit:





  • 1. Make sure that both valves at the water source(s) are turned on all the way.

    2. Check for plugged or kinked inlet hoses or plugged screens in the inlet valves
    3. Verify inlet valve operation

  • If there is water in the unit:

    1. Verify Drain pump operation
    2. Pressure Switch Hose is in good condition and properly connected to Tub and Pressure switch
  • Verify there is not a siphon problem
  • Verify wire harness connections to:Inlet Valves, Pressure Switch, Drain Pump, Flow Meter, and Central Control Unit (CCU)
  • Check all hoses for possible leaks
  • Verify pressure switch operation
  • Verify flow meter operation
  • Verify CCU operation
If this is intermittent, it would be very hard to determine the cause.
I myself have rarely run into this issue, and when I did, it was mainly caused by low water pressure into the water from the customers water supply, or clogged inlet water valve screens.
Make sure you don't have any duct tape or something around your drain pipe, it needs that air gap to prevent siphoning.

Washer starts and runs for about 10 minutes. Then stops and gives error message HF


Hello & Welcome to FixYa

FH error code is displayed when the control detects no water entering the machine. To clear this error press and hold the PAUSE/CANCEL button twice. You can then check if the water inlet valve is fine and not clogged with foreign particles, try to clean it. If the water inlet valve appears to be fine then check if the pressure switch hose is properly connected to the pressure switch & tub. Please get back to me if you have any questions.
