My washer gets the FH code very shortly after starting, not sure how to fix this, checked the trap to make sure it was clear.
The issue with the unit getting an FH error code is no water entering the unit. You will want to check to make sure that both valves are turned on at the supply. Check for plugged or kinked inlet hoses and screens. If this checks ok then verify voltage of 120 vac to the water valve. If the voltage tests ok and no water is coming into the unit then replace the valve. If this checks ok then check to make sure that the pressure hose is not clogged or damaged. Check the flow meter, drain pump, ccu, and pressure switch connections. If all checks ok then the control board is bad.
No water is going into the drum, I replaced the water inlet valve, confirmed that the flow meter is functioning by blowing through it and the hoses connected to it. What else am I to do? The repairman wants just about HALF of what it would take to buy another one (Brand New)!
Answer Hello Kevin,
I would start off by checking for stopped up screens in the inlet hoses and the water valve W10175893. If they are clear, and the water valve is passing water, the flow switch W10176591 should be checked by blowing gently through it while your test meter is connected to the terminals. There should be a change in the resistance when blowing through it. If so, the issue will most be either the lid switch 8318084 or the ATC switch W10248240.
