How can I fix the F/H Error code?
I have a Sears Kenmore Elite HE3t Front Loading Washer
Made by Whirlpool
I keep getting the F/H Error code.
I know the F/H error code has to do with water flow issues, so went through all of the things on everyone's list of potential problems, and have narrowed it down to this... The hot water valve is not opening to let water in. Sounds like a simple solution, Right? No so much...
I replaced the inlet valve, and I have the same problem with the new valve. I opted to switch out the white leads on the hot water solenoid with the black leads on the cold water solenoid. Now the hot water valve opens and the cold valve does not. Okay, so now I'm assuming the problem is not the solenoid on the old or new water inlet valve.
Next I checked the wires from the white terminals at the hot water inlet solenoid to the plug at the CCU. Both wires have continuity. Also wiggling the wires and leads while the valve should be open at the beginning of the cycle did not change anything. Okay, so now I'm assuming it's probably not the wires from the CCU to the hot water side of the solenoid.
Now I'm assuming the CCU is bad and not providing power to the wires leading to the solenoid on the hot water inlet valve, so changed out the CCU with a new one. Guess what?! The new CCU provides the exact same result. No power to the solenoid on the hot water inlet. So now I'm sort of assuming the problem is not the CCU either, but I have no idea where to go next?
All of the other items for the F/H error code have been checked and either were clean/unobstructed and functioning (pump filter and drain hose are clean and functioning fine to pump out the water from the tub, syphon hose is unobstructed with no kinks or leaks) or were replaced with new (flow meter, pressure switch, inlet valve, CCU). I'm totally perplexed and have no idea where to go from here?
Is this a good question?
