The FH code means the unit thinks there's no water entering the machine. If the water supply is good to the unit and the water is actually coming into the machine for a few seconds or longer you need a new flow meter. It was very common for the flow meters to fail and not signal the board that there is any water in the machine. Here is a link to the part and all you have to do is remove the top of the unit and you'll see it right off of the water valve.
