whirlpool duet front loader fh error code, unit over fills with water about half way, new water level psi switch and has no flow meter. runs about 12 to 15mins shuts down with fh code. all dianostics come back clean. think'n micro computer might be shot. where can i go on line to read a service manual for this unit.
Answer Hello Mike,
The FH fault code means that the machine is not recognizing that it is filling with water. The machine has to see either 10.5 gallons in 8 minutes or, water filling the machine in the first 30 seconds. To clear the code, press pause/cancel twice.
The cause of the failure can, of course, vary. The most common cause of the failure is either a bad flow switch or stopped up screens in the cold water inlet hose or the screens stopping up in the water inlet valve 8181694. The cold water normally gives the issue since the mineral deposits and sedimentation in the hot water side normally remains in the water heater.
The second most common cause is the pressure switch W10514214 failing or the pressure switch hose stopping up or getting a hole in it from the tubs shaking around during normal operation. The hose can also become pinched or stopped up with lint from the wash load.
front loader washer Q: Is the there a flow meter built into disenper actuator assembly? I getting a fh error code and it says to check the flow meter but there isn't one after the mixing valves. water level switch checks good.
Answer Hello Dumas. There is no flow meter used in this model. Here is the things to check after you get the FH error code. Possible Causes / Procedure
¦ If there is no water in the unit:
—Make sure that both valves at the water source(s) are
turned on all the way.
—Check for plugged or kinked inlet hoses or plugged
screens in the inlet valves.
—Verify inlet valve operation.
¦ If there is water in the unit:
—Verify drain pump operation.
—Verify that the pressure switch hose is in good
condition and properly connected to tub and pressure
1. Verify there is not a siphon problem.
2. Unplug washer or disconnect power.
3. Verify wire harness connections to inlet valves, pressure
switch, drain pump, flow meter, and Central Control
4. Check all hoses for possible leaks.
5. Plug in washer or reconnect power.
6. Verify pressure switch operation.
7. Verify flow meter operation by blowing air through the
part and measuring the resistance.
8. Verify CCU operation by running a Diagnostic test or
