Pumping out or leaking out?
There are various rubber connectors underneath and they can perish and leak. There is a trick. slide a piece of paper under it. Switch on and after a minute, pull the paper out. It will give you a rough idea where the leak is, front, back, left or right. Then pull the machine out, and tilt it safely against the wall, get someone to hold it and look with a flashlight for the area where the wet patch on the paper was.

There is a strainer in the hoses that are most likely clogged; clean it out and your problem should be repaired. If you still have the errors and you have good pressure coming to the washer, then you will need to replace the water valve on the washer. Here is that part to order. Keep me posted.
The information provided is general. For information specific to your washer please resubmit the question, including the model number.
The "F" is at the beginning of all error codes. This indicates the a Fault has taken place. The second number or letter indicates what the Fault is.
FH : Is displayed when no water has been detected entering the washer.
If the control has turned on the fill valve and after 8 minutes the flow meter has detected 10.5 gallons of water and not detected a pressure switch trip, the valve will be turned off and the failure code will flash in the display
Unplug the washer from its electrical source and wait for 30 seconds. Replug the cord into the electrical source and try to start a normal cycle or a cancel drain cycle. The machine should start the pump out mode and empty the water.
If, after 30 second, the machine has not detected water entering into the machine, the valves will be shut off and the failure code of FH will be displayed.
Check all hose connection and valves, both hot and cold, are turned on completely. Verify that water is at the fill hose connections at the back of the washer. The main control has sensed a component failure in the machine and will be needing a diagnostic visit for a possible repair or replacement.

There is a pressure sensor that needs to be looked into. USUALLY, there is a chamber, on the outside of the washer tub, and out of the top of it is a small plastic hose. This hose runs up to an electrical switch.
Too much soap, over time, can plug up this system, so the machine has no idea how much water is going in...and keeps filling..... Sometimes the hose comes loose, but this makes a fairly immediate water leak, so I suspect something is plugged.
Good morning. To start off with, get a shallow pan. At the bottom front of your washer, there is a filter trap. If its not visible, you will have to remove the kickplate held on by three screws at bottom. Slide shallow pan underneath and up to frame. Slowly turn counterclockwise until water starts to come out. When pan is midway full, empty. Repeat this procedure until no more water comes out and unscrew filter and pull out and clean. Reinstall snugly and install kickplate if it was removed. Have a good day.
Clean out or replace the tube running from the water level switch in the backsplash to the washer tub. It tends to plug up with gunk right where it attaches to the outer tub. When it gets plugged, the washer can not tell if the tub is empty or full.
1 of two problems happened. 1) either the water level sensor went bad. Which tells the water inlet valve when to shut off and the machine to start operating. 2) The water inlet valve has failed. This comes from the water hose and fills the washing machine.
In your problem you describe that you are getting hot water are you getting cold water too?. Make sure on the water valves are on the full open setting to eliminate a water pressure diffrence and any other valves connected to those water lines. If that checks out check for clogs in the hoses and filters that could be backed up. If that dosent fix the problem then its in the washer either the hot/ cold regulators or the timer.
