  1. Appliance Repair Assistant

    The FH error code on your GE front loading washer indicates that there is a water supply issue.
    This could be caused by a few different things, including a clogged filter or inlet valve, low water pressure, or a kinked water supply line.

    The washer is stopping because there is a water supply problem.
    Check that the washer is getting water, check the water valve on the wall to be sure it is fully open, check the water hoses as they could be clogged or bent, then check the water valve where the water goes into the washer.
    Let us know what you find out to fix the problem.

    I have a GE front loading washer. It fills with water and starts. After going around about 3 or 4 times it will start humming then shut off giving me a code f h then stops. What is the problem?

    The Kenmore washer error code LE means a motor error. Most likely the motor is overheating and needs time to cool down therefore you are having to wait to do a wash an hour or so later. You may need to replace the motor. OR… This may be a simple fix as a bolt may have become loose that holds the motor in position. It could also mean the motor is bad or on the fritz. Do some troubleshooting and try to see if the motor is tight, secure and in place. Be sure it is running properly and be sure ALL wire harnesses are tight and not damaged. After this run a test wash and see what you find. Hopefully it was a simple wire harness being loose or a the motor bolts were loose. If not the motor is most likely needing replaced. Let us know what you find.

  6. my Kenmore washer (model # 796 4027 2900) stopped working and the power light would not come on. I checked breaker, plug, etc . and bought a mother board. Installed and it turned on. Started a wash load and 15 minutes into the load it quit and put an LE code on panel. I followed instructions and let it sit for thirty minutes to cool down. Took some clothing out to lighten load, restarted. After about 3 minutes, it stopped again. Waited an hour next time and took more clothing out. I restarted and it happened again. What is the problem?
