SOURCE: Whirlpool GHW9100LW2/CSR1903623 flashes a FH code

The "FH" error can have several causes, so this can sometimes be a tricky problem to diagnose. Some of these error codes can also be erroneous. The first step to troubleshooting your problem should be to unplug the washer for at least 30 minutes in an attempt to reset the Central Control Unit (CCU). This is the main computer (or brain) of the washer. Sometimes this is all it takes to correct minor glitches. If your error code reappears following a reset, then you know you have a genuine problem. If the "FH" error persists, the following link explains what to do:

https://www.fixya.com/support/r615354-fh_error_code_whirlpool_duet_kenmore

Although, you may be correct in your assumption of a possible water inlet valve problem, I would recommend you read through the link provided and try to eliminate the easy things first. Check your installation for a possible siphoning issue, followed by a check of the drain pump. If those items check good, check the sediment screens in the water inlet valve. If you live in an area that has hard water, or if you use well water, the sediment screens can become clogged with deposits and debris. If you suspect a clogged inlet valve you can also remove it and thoroughly clean it in a 50/50 solution of water and distilled vinegar. Allow the inlet valve to soak in the solution for about half an hour and flush real well with clean water. Avoid submerging the solenoids and electrical connections, or getting them wet.

If you have questions along the way, or require additional assistance, please let me know. I hope you find this information helpful.

SOURCE: Miele dw flashes 5 times, water is draining.

which light is flashing? if the intake drain light is blinking and you dont hear the drain pump, it means water is not coming in. if the drain pump is running all the time, it means water has leaked into the bottom pan. behind the plastic toe kick, there is a panel that can be removed with two phillips head screws. It you can see water in there, you can dry it out, and try to run another cycle. if it runs fine, cut back on your detergent usage. if it leaks again within a cycle or two, you will need to locate the leak and repair.

SOURCE: I have a kenmore elite H3 washer. The cold water

Check the inlet valve solenoid wires for resistance with an ohms meter. The cold and hot solenoids should have close to the same resistance. My washer had a weak solenoid causing the hot water valve to close after 4 or 5 seconds. While checking the solenoid wires for resistance with the ohms meter, I noticed the cold side had 51 ohms but the hot side only 8 ohms. Hope this helps.

Samsung dishwasher wont turn off


Does the washer complete the cycle but remains on? Do you know that it's supposed to turn off? If it is not completing the cycle, it might be due to a failing water inlet valve, a failing heater, or something similar.

GE washing machine Toploader will not fill with water


see this causes and remedies: God bless you
Water Inlet Valve
First check the hoses that connect to the water inlet valve. Remove these completely there should be a screen in at least one end and maybe both ends. Clean these screens. Next check the back of the water inlet valve screens and remove and clean. If cleaning these out does not correct the problem you will need to check to make sure you have power going to the water inlet valve. Most top loaders will have 120 volts going to the valve. Check each solenoid on the valve. You will need to have the washer on and turned to a fill cycle when checking. If you have power and still no water replace the water inlet valve. No power replace the control. see the diagram attached

Control / Timer

This is less likely the problem but can fail. If you have no power going to the water inlet valve when selecting a fill cycle the timer/ control has failed and you will need to replace the timer.

Hi i have a samsung a fuzzy toploader as soon as i turn it on it gives me a 1E error HELP!!


It is probably not 1e but IE meaning input error. There is no water entering the machine. Could be the water valve. just in case check the inlet filter at the inlet valve to see it isn't blocked. then you will need to call for service www.thewashingmachineman.webs.com

We have a fisher and paykel MW512AU toploader washing machine. it turn on lets you select whatever and start it's wash then does these little beeps the lights on the wash progress flash depending on where...


If it is a musical rippling sound & hot & cold lights are flashing that usually indicates it is not getting water quickly enough. You can open the lid while it is filling & look. If water is just trickling in and taps are fully open then replace the inlet valve with a new one.

Miele W1926 check inlet light flashes at he end of rinse fill


Hi Yugin.That indicates your machines water inlet valve is faulty.(Means it's taking less water then normal)Please check this steps & do it fast before water inlet is finishes:1-Turn your machine on & run empty with pre-wash cycle first.2-Please ajar the detergent drawer & check runing water on compartment one 3-Please press pre-wash button & compare the running water volume on compartment two.If the running water volume 1 is less then 2 or vs.water valve needs to be replace.That's causing problem.I hope that helps.Thanks.

Miele W1926 check inlet light flashes at the end of rinse fill. When the fill ends, the light goes off. I cleaned all 4 filters at the intake hoses. The problem still exists. What does it mean?


Hi dear.It sounds like you'll need to change water inlet valve very soon.Because,machine waiting water level to be reach,in specific time frame in chosen program parameters to be get completed.If that does not happen,then it starts giving fault indication.Indication stops after fill,because task been competed & computer disregards the fault.If that won't happen then machine going to get stop completely & indication will carry on.Chage the water inlet valve if you can.I hope that helps. Thanks.

Wont fill when it goes to rinse cycle just sits and hums


There's no water at all If there's no water at all, make these checks: Is there water getting to the machine? Is the water-volume selector switch set properly and are the control panel buttons pressed in all the way? If you have a Maytag® washer, is the fuse (if there is one) in the control panel at the lid-switch bracket blown? Is there a faint buzzing or humming noise coming from the water-inlet valve? (The water-inlet valve is the device on the washing machine that the fill hoses are attached to.) If you can't hear anything, the water-inlet valve may not be getting any power. If you can hear some noise and there's water present, you may need to completely replace the water-inlet valve.
