There are a couple things that can cause your FH error. First, when the error occurs, how long does it take before the error code appears? Please time it with a watch.

Second, how high is the water compared to the bottom of the door when the error occurs?

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
It fills in 3 seconds and stops and then it fills again at 15 seconds and last a min until it stops again and 30 sec before the water finally stops it start to move

Let me know if you recive the picture please
Expert:  Tyler Z. replied 1 year ago.

OK so it should never stop. Check to see if you have power going to the water valves the entire time when it should be filling. If any solenoid is getting 110 volts and it's shutting down, you have a weak solenoid on your valve and the valve needs to be replaced. If you're not getting 110 volts the entire time to one of the valves, you need to replace the CCU control board mounted in the front right corner of the washer to the right side wall just above the tub.

And yes I received the picture.

When the whater is going thru inside the washer machine the machine is working all time
Expert:  Tyler Z. replied 1 year ago.

OK then you either have a bad valve that needs to be replaced or you have flood safe hoses that are tripping and cutting the water supply to the unit so try using rubber hoses and if it still acts up replace the valves.

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
I change bran new hoses on washer machine
Steel the same FH code in one minute
Expert:  Tyler Z. replied 1 year ago.

OK so is the water still starting and stopping like you said before? If so and the valve is getting power the whole time you need to replace the valve.

Customer: replied 1 year ago.

The washer machine works good on wash cile
But on -rinse spin- cicle send FH code
Customer: replied 1 year ago.
Cicle sorry
Expert:  Tyler Z. replied 1 year ago.

OK that means that your cold water supply is the part that's filling too slow because during rinse it only uses cold water and the water level requirement is higher. So it sounds like the issue is borderline but related to the cold water side.

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
I am waiting to recive the valves by mail
Expert:  Tyler Z. replied 1 year ago.

OK good luck.

Expert:  Tyler Z. replied 1 year ago.

I just answer appliance questions. I have no knowledge of the charges so telling me about charges unfortunately doesn't do anything.
