I have a Kenmore HE 3T Front loading washer which I am told

Customer Question

I have a Kenmore HE 3T Front loading washer which I am told is a Whirlpool product. I have misplaced my owners manual as the washer is about 8 years old but has worked well until last week when I got a F the H flashing codes and the washer stops. Had a idiot of a service person who came out and said he couldn't remember what all the codes meant and just unplugged the machine and replugged it back in and it started working again. But it has only done about 7 loads and I have a repeat of the same codes. I tried the unplug and replug, but it did not work. Can you help?
Thank you, ***** *****

Hello and thanks for using this service! If you are a JA Member I would like to personally thank you and welcome you back! I am Appliance Guru an extremely experienced tech on the site and I try to get to as many customers as I can. NOTE it takes time for me to type research and add links so please wait for me to respond back I can only do this so fast. Secondly, I do not know your skill level so please try and let me know if I am going beyond your knowledge or comfort zone thanks! I strive for a 5 star rating from everyone especially our JA members.


That is a fill code meaning the unit is not detecting water entering the machine, if the water supply is good to the unit and the valves both HOT and COLD are working you likely have a bad flow meter. Try to start it on COLD water for fill and see if water enters good, then Hot and see. If both are fine replace the flow meter on the unit. If not then check the water for the one that is not entering the unit or the screens on the valves and see if they are clogged.
