Better buy it while you still can. It's just twenty bucks.

Define "connection."

FYI... To reset the "stuck on 58 minutes" with the drain pump running, I held the start button when I replugged in the machine. This reset the board and I was able to open the door and restart the cycle.

it seems that this hf code is becoming a popular subject, - i have been trying to isolate this problem myself also - so far i have replaced the pressure switch because it did seem like the right idea at the time, -it does monitor the level of water in the unit, but as usual if life was simple then all would work out. As it seems 60 bucks later - nothing was wrong with the old 1. so to the beginning we go. Electronics is my profession and therefore i started becoming creative - i have installed a led for every contact point of the switch and a monitor led for the water flow meter, and since i was at the controller i added leds for the water valves and water pump. So the hunt starts again, need to catch the failure to assess the problem, to see what state the unit is in when it fails. 1 DEFINITE QUESTION for anyone with knowledge of operation of the echo valve, how does it work ??, what happens when it leaks ?? does it drop pressure from the switch thus signaling the controller with water level/lack off problem. My unit fails most often when presoak cycle is invoked, when its finishing presoak and starting regular wash, -empties water then starts to fill for regular wash it then quits with a H/F code. Once reset and regular cycle is started again then it runs it all with no problem.

Did you read Kdog's reply on 11/7? That was some pretty esoteric wisdom gleaned from the field.

OK - and for my problem - this is what my little tattletale lights said, during the prewash cycle all was good the flow meter, all valves and water switch behaved, then the machine drained and cant remember if it lightly rinsed or not, but the main was cycle came on and the unit started to fill and fill and fill and fill, funny thing was that the pressure switch never even seen the suds contact close never mind the water ok level. So where did the water go ?? well when the machine quit and the code started beeping i heard water running in the drain. How can that be ?? . The pump is off and yet the water is flowing out of the machine - that is why my pressure switch does not activate thus the computer has water flow vs level discrepancy. Can someone please tell me why is the water flowing out ?? how do i fix that?  --   thanx for any info.

If your drain hose is lower than the water level in the washer it will drain out.  Also if there is not an air gap around the drain hose where it goes into your house drain the city sewer system will syphen the water out of the washer as there are pumps in the sewer system, so make sure their is an air gap around the drain hose.

The only way for this to happen is for the water to get siphoned out of the tub.

H/F code - i have extended the drain hose and fastened it up above the machine before steering it into the drain, and successfully ran 3 loads in the row with no code. If that is all my problem, hopefully, then i thank you lots for your knowledge and assistance. I had the same setup of the machine for the past 2.5 years and did not experience this problem - frankly don't know why or what changed - but for the owners of similar units with an H/F code and a machine that is elevated with the addition of the pedestal - be aware that your discharge hose is now below the specified height if it drains to a standard height sink which in turn may cause intermittent H/F code.

H/F code - i have now installed a hose that loops to the bottom of the machine and travels up approx. 6 inches above the machine before going down to the drain to compensate for the siphon effect, but it seems that i was not successful in correcting the h/f problem because the dreaded H/F code popped up again and i heard water running into the drain. :( Seems to happen most often on the prewash cycle. When machine is restarted in wash - it completes the cycle without a problem. Hoping for any other suggestions. Thanx lots - Andre.

F/H code - i have now undertaken the task of manually inspecting and cleaning the machine - surprisingly it is very service friendly - all pieces can be removed with 2 torx drivers and a pair of pliers as long as you do not have to deal with electronics. To check for foreign objects in the drum enclosure assembly - just place a work lite under it , open the door and take a peek - you will be surprised of what you can see, if you remove the bottom drain boot - you will find a big ball in it - guess that must be the echo valve - i had a huge piece of lint that was caught on the heater element restraint bar and was dangling into the boot possibly blocking the way for the ball to close - speculations for now because i did not have enough time to prove the performance yet. It would be totally service friendly if the pressure hose was clear, that way any obstructions could be seen past the plastic chamber assembly. But overall its a great unit to service, and i did not have to take the drum assembly apart to locate the echo  valve.

goofieshot, did removing the lint around the ball actually work? I'm having the same problem and have been searching the web for a few hours before I ran into your post. Let us know what ended up happening. Thanks, Gordon

not sure - considering that i did go through all alignment procedures, made sure that the washer was properly leveled, and the drain hose end was located at the proper height, my washer is running fine now -  but i am not sure what problem you are having, the hf ?? or f9.
