f h error code

f h error code

I have to hit pause and restart thru out the cycle. Getting a F flash H flash code?




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.


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.


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.

It can be 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."

I too had the FH error. By running the diagnostic test, I was able to eliminate the flowmeter because step C01 ran and water was flowing into the tub. After searching the internet I figured it was probably the pressure switch and/or it’s hose. I order the parts and started to replace them. The pressure hose is connect to the Airtrap. What I found was my airtrap was completely clogged. Since nothing was “flowing” to the pressure switch, it detected that there was no water entering the tank and generated the FH error. I removed the airtrap and clean it. I re-ran the diagnostic test and no FH error. I really don’t think the pressure switch was the problem, but it was not that expensive for the part so I figured I would use it anyway. So you may want to check the Airtrap.

"This is the process I used to resole the HF error code.

1- Removed pressure switch from washer.

2- Disassembled pressure switch., made sure all parts were in place and functional.

3- Reassembled pressure switch.

4- Tested pressure by blowing into the tube. You should hear clicking, this is the diaphragm responding to pressure you are applying by blowing into tube.

5- Checked for continuity on the pressure switch, when triggering the diaphragm of the pressure switch. Used a volt/ohm meter.

6- Removed flow meter, made sure there was not obstruction by blowing through the flow meter. I also used a magnet to trigger the wheel inside. Repeated for both directions.

7- Cleaned out the filter of the water pump.

8- Cleaned out inlet valves.

9- Installed back flow meter and pressure switch.

I got rid of the HF error code. I believe it was flow meter, something may have caused the internal wheel to work improperly."

"Read this before you spend money on repairs or parts:

I have a older HE3t washer (from 2000 and still works great!) that was consistently flashing the F/H error code. If I did anything that pushed water (rinse or wash) to the machine 1-2 minutes in to the cycle the code would pop and the washer stop.

i pulled the cold and hot lines at the machine, cleaned the screen traps (which have never been cleaned and were very plugged). The washer is working fine and no more errors codes. Those screen traps impact water flow pressure."

"My issues was i was getting enough water, but still getting the F/H error.

Tools I used were a torx head screwdriver, small flat head screwdriver and a pair of channel locks and a 5 gallon bucket

Disconnect the power. Using a small torx head screwdriver, Removed the top and the front control panel. I replace the front door boot too, so i had the bottom off as well. Plenty of you-tube videos on this.

Check the drain. i’ve had a sock in there before and got the same error.

Pull the hoses from the back of the unit and check water flow.

Check and clean (if needed) the screens at the intake valve. I used the small flat head screwdriver to get them out.

i disconnected the washer dispenser inlet hose from the intake valve and also pulled the nozzle from drawer assembly. There is a tab that holds it in place. i used the flat head to pry it up. Be careful not to break it. i also disconnected the wiring from the water intake valve and the flow meter and labeled them. Blow through the hose. you should be able to hear the flow meter spin freely. If not, something could be blocking it. Once it is all clear, i reconnected everything turned on the power and started a cycle. I left the dispenser drawer out and saw plenty of water coming out. have towel to kind of block the front from water coming out. HInd-sight, I would have done this first.

Since everything is good to this point. I looked to the water level pressure switch. Since i had the machine full of water, I turned on the drain cycle. I saw suds coming out of the water level pressure hose. there was a small hole in it. Since it was near the switch itself, i was able to cut out the hole and reattach the hose.

problem solved."

"Hello, had same issue with the F02 fault. Took off the drain pump found wire from a bra, probable stopped the pump wheel from turning. Also the drain line where it hangs on the sink was 80% plugged. Verified the pump worked and re-assembled. Then got fault F H. Checked the water supply system, all looked good.

Finely removed the access door again to the drain pump. I found that I missed the power plug to drain pump. Corrected my error and we are now up and running.

Thanks everyone for the info, helped me out."
