    Thanks for trying I did post a comment as it wouldn't allow me to rate. I checked all hoses and pipe work ok, also checked over the pressure switch and pressure switch hose and all seemed ok. I have had the machine for a while so I decided to just treat the wife and buy a new one! Much appreciated for trying
    Cheers bick.

Two questions: Is there water in the tub? Or...is the tub empty? If there is water in the tub you need to check the following: 1. Verify that you do not have a siphon problem. This is caused by placing the drain hose too far into the drain standpipe and/or sealing the top of the standpipe. This will cause water to constantly empty as the tub tries to fill. You need to have an air gap for proper drainage. 2. Check your pressure switch and pressure switch hose. 3. Make sure the drain pump is operating correctly. 4. Check operation of flow meter. This is what actually detects the water flow coming into the machine and causes the error to flash if the proper conditions on are not set. It will detect the AMOUNT of water entering the tub and it detect the pressure switch trip that shuts off the supply when the tub is filled. If there is no water in the tub you need to check the following: 1. Check your fill valve screens. Turn off the water and remove the hoses from the back of the washer. The fill valve screens are inside the hose connections on the back of the washer. It only takes a small amount of debris to restrict water. You can clean them out using cotton swabs. 2. Make sure your fill hoses are not kinked or clogged. Check the easy possibilities, first. I suspect you may have either a siphoning problem, or clogged fill valve screens. If you check everything and still have problems, I would replace your fill valve before suspecting a defective pressure switch or flow meter. Let me know if this helps.

Whirlpool awm 8143 doesn't stop at the end of the spin cycle. Instead it clicks for a while when the timer displays 1 minute then displays F07 then goes back to wash cycle. While googling I found something...


F07 - Motor Control Unit (MCU) Error - Disconnect power and unplug unit. Check wire harness connections between drive motor and Motor Control Unit (MCU), and between MCU and the Central Control Unit (CCU). Reconnect power and plug unit in.
Check the MCU by looking for operations of the drive motor, and check drive motor for powered rotations. Replace failed component.

Note: If this failure occurs during high-speed spin, the door will be unlocked after three minutes.

Whirlpool awm 8125/3 fault code FH


Probably too late, but here it goes:
FH means some cicle is taking too long time.
Replace the inlet electrical valve. It probably wont open enough and the water flow is not enough to fill to level in time. This should cost you 10€ and is easily done by anyone.
Just remove the top of the machine (two bolts on the rear and slide to the back), disconnect the valve (electrical and water input and output), push the lockers and twist the valve free.

Okay, ther manufacturer recommends unplugging the washer for at least 30 minutes to reset the computer. It could be you have a momentary glitch causing some problems. If you still have the same problem after leaving the washer unplugged, the following link explains the "FH" error code:

If your clothes are stuck inside and you still cannot get them out because the door will not unlock, you will have to use the manual release to open the door. The next link explains how:
