Question about Kenmore Washing Machines
Hi i have kenmore washer machine, model# 110.44921301 code HF is on. could you please help me diagnostic this thanks
I don't have as much information as given above but will tell you what worked for me. Tools needed: A couple old towels and simple pair of pliers.
After my wife showed me the HF code repeating on the read-out and saying that the wash cycle would not begin, I did the following:
1- Pulled the machine away from wall for easier access
2- Turned off both water valves and noted the hose connections. This was easy because it is color coded. (I also pulled the electric plug for safety but not sure this is necessary)
3- Disconnected both hoses from washer connections only (not from the taps) Have a towell handy to catch the drips from hose.
4- Inspection showed the cold water screen (filter) going into the washer to be clean. The hot water screen was heavily obstructed and limiting the flow of hot into the washer.
5- I scrapped the screen gently with a blade of my small pocket knife to remove the crud on it. Emphasize gently so as not to damage the filter. This went slow and so I sprayed small amount of "Lime Away" on it and this seemed to help get the build up off easier. I got it looking real clean.
6- Re-connected the hoses to proper connections. Careful of the plastic threads on the stubs. Make sure to not cross thread and force the hose on as the plastic threads could get damaged.
9- Snug up the hose threads, turn on the water valves, and check for any leakiage.
10- Place electric plug back into outlet and give it the test. Mine workded perfect and has completed a couple of loads without any more codes or problems. Note that I put some old "car towels" into the washer for the test run to soak up any of the "lime away" that I didn't want my wife to get on the real clothes.
Good Luck. I hope your fix was as simple as mine and not involved as mentioned in the detailed list of possible other problems by the experts.
11- Replace the washer and move on the the next honey do.

"FH" is defined as a "No Water Detect" error code. This is an indication that have no water, or very little water being detected coming into the washer. The following link explains the error code and steps on how to troubleshoot:
The problem may be as simple as a kinked or clogged inlet hose, or an issue with one of the washer sensors. Check your inlet and drain hoses to ensure you are supplying the washer with sufficent water and/or don't have a siphoning problem. Eliminate the easy options, first, before assuming you have a component malfunction.
NOTE: Each one of thes washers comes with a technical data sheet inside. The tech sheet lists all error codes, troubleshooting information, wiring diagrams, diagnostics procedures and illustrations. To access, you need to remove the lower toe panel directly below the door. The screws are located under the bottom front edge. With the screws removed, the panel will drop down and can be removed. If the tech sheet is not located dorectly behind the toe panel, it will be affixed to one of the interior cabinet walls. I mention the tech sheet, because you may need to refer to it in order to accurately isolate this particular problem.
If you have questions, please post back and let me know. I hope you find this information helpful.
