Knowing if a washer has a filter is important. There is no filter to clean on a regular basis.  The use and care instructions for this model can be found in the manual .  There is a pump filter that can be checked if items go missing or the washer is not draining properly.  The images below can assist with access to the pump filter if needed.  Be sure to unplug washer before accessing the filter. If further assistance is needed, please reply.  Thank you for using Manage My Life.

There is no error code 0:00. An error code might be an F02 or F11.

You should be able to select any cycle even if the machine will not run.

If you cant select all the cycles then check the Cycle End Signal button. If this button is pressed and held for 3 seconds the control will enter "Control Lock."

You should at least be able to select the Drain/Spin cycle and run it.

If you cannot select all the cycles then I suspect the console has a stuck or shorted keypad.

One thing to try is to see if you can enter and run the diagnostic test. The instructions to do so are int the images below. Try this and see if you can enter the test and if it will run through the test. You might even get an error code.

I hope this helps. You can reply with any additional details for further assistance.

A:

The washer shuts down due to low pressure but you don't tell me which error code you see.

The FH, no water fill detected, is the most common.

F32 and F33 might also be errors you might see displayed if there are water problems.

One thing you might try to start is to enter and run a diagnostic cycle as shown below.

The first couple of steps will turn the cold and hot water valves on.

When does the washer shut down? Is it at the beginning of the cycle, middle or end?

Do you have regular water inlet hoses or flood proof hoses with shut offs?

Please give me a reply with any additional details for further assistance.

A:

The hose are not flood proof. I have check connections and the hoses are correct. I have noticed if I restart the machine 2 -3 time it will finish out thye cycle. The coe i get is FH and happens within the first 5-10 minutes of the cycle.

A:

If there is water coming into the tub but you still get a FH error then most likely the flow meter is bad and needs to be replaced. If the water valve is okay then the FH is most likely caused by a bad flow meter. Also you should check the drain hose is not stuck to far down the stand pipe. That might cause a siphon where the water fills and drains at the same time. This also might cause the FH error.

I will check the drain hose.. Last night i ran the machine with out any clothes in the tub or soap. I ran it 3 times, super hot, warm and cold. It did not shut down during the cycle. I notice that there was a build of soap above the dispenser. I tried to clean it off. Is there a need to remove the cover above it to make sue it is not stopped up, If so how does it come off. I then ran the machine with soap and no clothes and no issues. I ran a load of clothes after this and it was back to stopping. If i hit the pause and restart the machine will resume the cycle. I may have to do this 2-3 ntimes to get it out of the wash cycle. Once it gets to the rinse cycle it never stops

What is odd about this complaint is not that the problem starts when clothes are added but that the washer shuts down without an error code. Do you see any codes when it stops with a load of clothes

Sorry, It always give code of "FH" when it stops. Those are the only code that i have seen. We did move the machine to to the garage before this starting happening to lay new tile on the floor. I did take it down a about 5 inch step on 2 wheel dolly. It was not dropped. It was tilted back on about a 45 degree angle when we went down the step.

The FH does indicate a problem with the fill. The control is not seeing the water enter the washer. This is most likely a problem with the pressure switch. Both hot and cold water seem to work and if water fills the tub then the pressure switch should see this unless the hose is kinked or blocked. The air trap might be at fault. One thing to try is to remove the top and access the pressure switch. With the tub empty you can remove the hose and blow through it towards the air trap. If you can�t blow then check the hose for kinks or other restrictions. Make sure the drain hose is not to far down the drain standpipe. To low and it might create a fill and drain problem that would **** the control out. I hope this helps. Let me know if you find anything.
