Re: My machine is Kenmore Elite front load It is
Hello Sandra, The FH error code means the computer on the control board didn't 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.

does it ever give an error code? a common problem on whirlpool made machines is the dispenser arm getting caught when changing positions. This part is in rear of detergent dispenser housing and uses a motor and a arm to select detergent/ softner/ bleach/ and fill. you can remove top (screws on back) to watch this.
Just in case there is a pull string with a loop, all plastic under the latch, need to pull the toe panel off and reach up inside the right, unplugged of course until you feel the switch. a pull latch is below the switch incase this happens and hats off to all star/ a serial error or a faulty switch is most of what causes this to start.
F 06 cose for faulty motor controller. reomove lower acess panel adn ck for good wire connections (board is in rt front corner) check wiring harness to lower control board,. sometimes a glitch( it is a computer after all). try unplugging unit fro 2 min . if not replace motor control board
can you spin the drum by hand? if not,pull front panel off by removing three screws on bottom, remove lint screen, then remove three screws holding inlet housing ( the big brown thing in front) check to make sure not clogged with sock, panty hose ,bra underwire ,etc.
