I keep getting the HF error message even though I have removed the hoses and cleaned the screens. Is there anything else I can do? The water will run for about a minute then the error message will come on.

F/H No water detected entering machine or Pressure switch trip not detected.

If after 30 seconds the control does not detect water entering machine and then valves will be turned off and the error code will be displayed.
Or
If the control has turned the water valves on and after 8 minutes the flow meter has detected 10.5 gallons of water passing through it, but has not detected the pressure switch trip, the valves will be turned off and the error code will flash.

Press PAUSE/CANCEL twice to clear the display.

  • If there is no water in the unit:
    1. Make sure that both valves at the water source(s) are turned on all the way.
    2. Check for plugged or kinked inlet hoses or plugged screens in the inlet valves
    3. Verify inlet valve operation
  • If there is water in the unit:
    1. Verify Drain pump operation
    2. Pressure Switch Hose is in good condition and properly connected to Tub and Pressure switch
  • Verify there is not a siphon problem
  • Verify wire harness connections to:Inlet Valves, Pressure Switch, Drain Pump, Flow Meter, and Central Control Unit (CCU)
  • Check all hoses for possible leaks
  • Verify pressure switch operation
  • Verify flow meter operation
  • Verify CCU operati
Thank you for writing to fix ya.

If this is intermittent, it would be very hard to determine the cause.
I myself have rarely run into this issue, and when I did, it was mainly caused by low water pressure into the water from the customers water supply, or clogged inlet water valve screens.
Make sure you don't have any duct tape or something around your drain pipe, it needs that air gap to prevent siphoning.

My washer stopped mid cycle and wouldnt drain or spin or anything. The error message is "nd". Can I fix it myself? thanks


Hi

ND=-no drain error.
Remove the back panel you will see the pump. Simply remove the pump and remove the obstruction that is keeping it from draining. Check for thongs, baby socks and sometimes hair pins or even screws can obstruct the water pump. There's going to be some water left in the pump and drain hose, so get a large towel ready. Remove screws attaching black piece (motor) to white piece (housing), pull out motor and clean the housing and motor impeller. Reverse steps to assemble it back together. If you don't hear pump running after completing the cleaning, you may need to check the wiring and/or replace main control board located inside the console. If the pump seems to be running but no water is being drained - replace pump.

Please get back to us if you have further query else please accept the suggestion.
Thank you for contacting fixya.com

Washer starts and runs for about 10 minutes. Then stops and gives error message HF


Hello & Welcome to FixYa

FH error code is displayed when the control detects no water entering the machine. To clear this error press and hold the PAUSE/CANCEL button twice. You can then check if the water inlet valve is fine and not clogged with foreign particles, try to clean it. If the water inlet valve appears to be fine then check if the pressure switch hose is properly connected to the pressure switch & tub. Please get back to me if you have any questions.

Hi

Thanks for using FixYa. Error HF on Kenmore washer means that a water inlet problem has occurred. If after 30 seconds the control does not detect water entering machine and then valves will be turned off and the error code will be displayed. Press PAUSE/CANCEL twice to clear the display.

If there is no water in the unit:-

  • Make sure that both valves at the water source(s) are turned on all the way.
  • Check for plugged or kinked inlet hoses or plugged screens in the inlet valves
  • Check inlet valve operation.

If there is water in the unit:-

  • Check Drain pump operation
  • Pressure Switch Hose is in good condition and properly connected to Tub and Pressure switch.


However, it is also caused by a clogged drain filter.

Step One: Unplug Washer

Step Two: Remove front Panel from Washer

Step Three: Locate Filter Assembly(and be ready to soak up water with a towel)

Step Four: Remove Filter. It’s Gross. Check for some coins, socks, toothpicks,etc.

Step Five: Clean Filter

Step Six: Replace Clean Filter

Step Seven: Reinstall the Front Panel. Run load of clothes.

Please do rate the solution and revert for further assistance.


Thanks

I have an error message HF


I suspect that you are getting the FH fault code that indicates a long fill on many of the Kenmore washer models. Here are some tips that might help:
  • If you are using a Flood Save device as shown in the image below for your fill hoses, this could be causing your problem. This type of device will not work on washers.
  • Make sure that the hot and cold faucets behind the washer are both turned fully on.
  • Turn the water supply faucet off. Disconnect the hoses from the back panel of the washer. Check the inlet water supply screens on the back of the washer. Clean any deposits and debris. Thoroughly flush this area with water to keep any debris from making it past the screens and into the inlet water valves. Debris can corrupt these valves and could cause them to leak.
  • Put the ends of the fill hoses into a bucket and briefly turn on the water supply faucets to check the water pressure and volume flowing through the fill hoses. If the pressure or volume is low, check the hoses for clogs. If the hoses are okay, then you will need a plumber to fix the water supply to the washer.
  • A failed water level pressure switch or flow meter could cause this problem on some models of Kenmore washers.
  • Check the installation of your drain hose. Make sure that it complies with installation guidelines. An improperly installed drain system can result in the siphoning of fill water through the drain during the filling of the tub.
If these tips do not help, resubmit your question with additional details

H F error


Take the hoses off the back of the washer. You'd better turn the water off though, first, of course, and there's a little screen where the water goes in. My cold water tends to have black somethings in it and tends to plug this screen. Clean it off with a rag and something small to get the edges. Don't take that screen off.(Not sure if someone without mechanic savvy, like me, could anyway.) It should start to work correctly.
