Some washing machines allow cold water to enter only during certain cycles. Others intermittently allow hot and cold to enter, to temper the temperature of the water. Consult your owner's manual if you are unsure about whether the machine is acting abnormally.

If you're sure the machine is not working the way it used to--or should--check the following.

  • Is the cold water turned on? If not, turn it on.

  • Is the washer getting hot water but no cold water? If so, check to see if the control panel settings are correct.

  • Is there cold water coming through the proper hose? If not, check to see if the screen inside the water-inlet valve is clean. (The water-inlet valve is the device on the washing machine that the fill hoses are attached to.) If it's clean, you probably have a defective water-inlet valve. If so, you need to replace the valve.

Is there a faint buzzing or humming noise coming from the water-inlet valve? (The water-inlet valve is the device on the washing machine that the fill hoses are attached to.) If you can't hear anything, the water-inlet valve may not be getting any power. If you can hear some noise and there's water present, you may need to completely replace the water-inlet valve.

My Kenmore Elite HE3 keeps flashing F H


F/H error is normally a malfunctioning flow meter. A good indicator is substantially higher water levels than normal, provided the flow switch has tripped its first set of contacts.

Condition
No 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.

Hope helps (remember to rate and comment this answer).

No cold water


HI, the main reason for no cold water will eb a faulty inlet water vale assembly but, it is best to rule out any minor issue that m,ay cause this as well. check the following devices and hoses for faults. replace the water valve assembly if the the below inspection points check out ok.

Check points-

1. check the cold water wall faucet. make sure the faucet screen is clear of debris and, the faucet is all the way open.

2. Check the water inlet hose for obstructions and kinks. if the hose is knotted or kinked, straighten if possible or, replace.

3. Check the Selector switch(Water temperature switch on control panel)- This is an uncommon problem area but, its worth testing.

No cold water. only warm or hot. When I shut off the hot water, then no water at all.


A couple of things that might be wrong:

1. kink in your cold water hose that will prevent the water from flowing into the machine.
2. the cold water faucet is turned off. My daughter experienced the same thing but it was with the hot water. The master valve was not turned on so there was no water going into that hose at all. Hope this helps.

I have a frigidaire gallery washer model # fws446ghs0 it will not let cold water run in very good ( very slow ) but warm water is good. the hoses are not kinked and vavles are open. what can this be ?


For low water volume - or "Trickling" effect...

1. Turn off the water supply to both hoses.
2. Remove hoses (one at a time so you don't get them confused)
3. On the washer side - look for a removeable screen inside wher you just removed the hose.
4. Using a small screwdriver - pop out the screen and reverse-flush it/clean it. It will likely be full of sediment and calcium deposits from your pipes.
5. Replace the inlet screens.
6. Re-fit the hose to the machine.
7. Turn on water supply valves.
8. re-try.

Error code


hi sir one of these problem will be there 1 - No cold fill. Check that the taps are on or if the drain hoses are kinked. 
2 - No hot fill.The ambient temperature is likely to be below freezing possibly due to the pipes being frozen. Also check that the taps are on or if the drain hoses are kinked. 
3 - No mixed fill. It is likely that the water is not turned on at the taps. 
4 - Check the water supply, inlet valve and hot and cold hose connections. 
4 - A fault with the water heating has occurred. 
5 - Water is not being pumped out and a flood condition could occur. Check that the drainage hose is raised to the recommended minimum height and that the pipe is not blocked. 
6 - Extremely high water level Disconnect or turn off the water supply and ensure that the water level does not rise any more. Then book a service engineer. 
7 - Door not closed properly. Close door firmly at the 3 o'clock position. 
E20/1 - The thermistor resistance has drifted or the temperature scanning sequence is incorrect. The ambient temperature could be below freezing. 
thank u............

The HF error code is a hot fill valve control issue. Here are some tips:

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.

This is directly from the Whirlpool tech sheets we use to verify these problems. Make sure you have the hot water on fully and the hoses and strainers inside (at the fill valve and hose connection) are clean and debris free. let me know if this helps you out any.
