Well I fixed my problem.  It was none of the above.  I have the kind of hoses running from my wall to the washer that are supposed to "seal" when the hose bursts.  So when I turned off my water to do the plumbing repairs, it must have changed pressure and triggered the hose to close.  All I did was unscrew the hose and screw it back in, then I ran a complete cycle on the washer without a problem.

I've read alot of good info on this FH error.  I just installed a brand new Duet that had been stored (unopened) in my garage for over a year.  Upon running the first cycle, the error comes up.  The machine will fill and start the cycle, but like clockwork after 2-3 minutes into it the error will happen.  The cycle will end and the drain pump will run to empty the machine.

I have checked the hoses, filters and drain line all are fine.  I plan to open it up tomorrow and check all connections and the pressue switch hose.

Does this error sound like a specific item?

In Addition, I did receive an F09 error once.

I ran the diagnostic test in the user manual and found that the FH error occured duning the C:01 (Filling with cold water) stage.  The machine was definitely filling at the time.  Error happened after 10 - 15 seconds of filling.  Flow switch problem?

Thanks.

My machine did the same, after checking just about everything and replacing the pressure switch, I took a chance and replaced the flowmeter, and it fixed the problem.

Guess What!  I took your advice.  The flowmeter came today, I put it in and that was it.  Machine is working fine.:) 

 

:shock:  What's wrong with these units.

I'm having a suspiciously similar problem with our Kenmore Elite H3 Washer (Model 110.44832200). F/H error typically 2-3 minutes into the cycle and 10 - 15 seconds of filling:(. The machine is definitely filling water. After carefully reading this thread as well as the repair manual I went down the list of diagnostic steps. I got stuck at the flowmeter. After removing it from the machine for inspection and putting it back, the washer ran fine for 3 or 4 cycles:). Then the F/H came back:X. Repeated the same procedure this morning and the cycle subsequently completed without further F/H.

Ordered Flowmeter and will post update in a few days.

Thanks all for posting to this list. Truly enlighting and entertaining too (Love that bootmark comment!). I'm ready for a glass Hefeweizen now :P. Good night.

My F/H error code was caused by a hole in the air line, causing the machine to overfill, stop, and beep. This was a simple repair with my "quick fix." Remove the top of the washer (three screws at the back). I purchased a plastic barb coupling, 3/16" x 3/16," at a hardware store, cut out about 2" of the  black rubber tubing which was flatted and worn thin to a hole, and spliced the two pieces with the coupling. Have the coupling at hand when you do this, don't drop the lower end of the tubing. Seat the coupling into the lower end and then attach it to the upper end. I used a nylon tie to secure the tubing to the broken retainer clip at the side of the case, end of problem. Cost was $1.11.

This is such a great forum! I just picked up a used Duet washer today, after the front counterweight went caput and damaged some wiring on my 9 yo Frigidaire Gallery front loader.

I got this thing home tonight. Looks like new, but I hooked everything up and started a load, adn about 15 minutes into it I got what appears to be the dreaded HF code and beeping alarm. I could not get the spin cycle on any program to work right either (maybe 60 rpm). Earlier, the spin cycle did run high speed once. I also noticed that no matter what program mode I was in, the timer would not count down. After reading throught this thread, I went upstairs, unplugged it, pulled the drain line up a bit, plugged it back in and started a load. Seems to be working fine now. Kepping my fingers crossed, and the used shop I bought it from are probably doing the same (90 day warranty).

I will see how she runs a few times tonight. It may not be a done deal yet!
