Please refer to your owners manual in the installation section. The drain pipe probably needs to be as high as the height of the control panel. or 36 inches.

If the drain hose is lower you have a siphon problem, the machine fills and the drain is lower the water just runs to drain.

If this is not the problem you may have a control problem and the control is running the pump.

Ask if you have more questions.

My machine won't meter water into machine


When doing inside jobs on the machine see that the power line is off the wall mains. Also note which line goes where before dismantling it.
First try turning off the machine for 30 minutes. Disconnect the pipes at the back top of machine, to see if water comes full flow from your water supply. Check the fine filters on the machine inlet entry, they could be blocked, clean out with old tooth brush. Some filters are removable.
The FH indicates a fill failure and this is usually caused by a bad water valve, flow meter or pressure switch.
One key to determining the cause of the FH error is how fast the error comes up in a cycle. If the error appears within 1 or 2 minutes then the most likely cause will be the water valve or flow meter.
If the error doesn't appear for several minutes then the pressure switch can be the source of the problem.
Both water valves must be turned on and working. Even if a cold wash is selected at some point during the fill the hot water valve will be energized and if there is no water then the FH error will show up. Sometimes a consumer will turn the hot water valve off to save energy but you can't turn one valve off on some washers.
Inlet valves can be purchased thru the net and fitted by you easily.
Water into machines are not 'metered', it is measured by your flow meter inside the machine. A line going up from your outlet area to your panel above to activate a switch, according to water pressure.

Not filling

First try turning off the machine for 30 minutes. Re-plug. If nothing happens. Disconnect from mains. Then check your inlet valve. Shut off valve, switch off machine & see if the water comes full flow. Check the fine filters on the machine inlet entry, they could be blocked, clean out. The FH indicates a fill failure and this is usually caused by a bad water valve, flow meter or pressure switch.
One key to determining the cause of the FH error is how fast the error comes up in a cycle. If the error appears within 1 or 2 minutes then the most likely cause will be the water valve or flow meter.
If the error doesn't appear for several minutes then the pressure switch can be the source of the problem. There is a slim tube going up from the filter area to a switch near your control board or panel; it leads to the pressure switch - it should not be blocked or leaky - ie.with holes.
Both water valves must be turned on and working. Even if a cold wash is selected at some point during the fill the hot water valve will be energized and if there is no water then the FH error will show up. Sometimes a consumer will turn the hot water valve off to save energy but you can't turn one valve off on some washers.
Inlet valves can be purchased thru searching this site and fitted by you easily.
Just noted that your machine is a top load; anyways, click if helped.

Washing machine keeps flashing up fh and not working


Hello,

The FH error code means the computer on the control board didnt detect any water entering the washer..sometimes it doesnt detect the water entering because the filter screens on the water inlet valve are clogged with sediment and water is having a hard time entering the washer.

The filter screens can be checked by turning off water at the faucets and disconnecting the fill hoses from the back of the machine and pop the screens out of where the hoses connect at the washer and check for blockage in them. If they are found to be clean, check the water coming out of the hoses before connecting them back to the washer...if the screens are clean and water pressure is good out of the hoses the part of the washer called the FLOW METER would need to be replaced

My whirpool aw614 displays FH error display which suggest water inlet probs, clean filters a;though they are spotless, still get same prob, on some programs it will work until it comes to rinse, where it...


Suspect low water flow rate ., check flow rate from main sink tap , when turned on full this should be pretty fierce. Put machine on normal cool wash , when it is taking in cold water through the soap drawer , pull out the drawer a little , the water flow rate should be allmost the same as the tap , if not investigate , fill pipes at rear etc..
