    This is the HE3 model front load, I don't remember each of the error codes by memory, in my 20's i would have.But im almost 40 now.:shock:LOL.

    On The very bottom front of your washer is 3 torx screws, take them out and that lower front access panel will come off, look to your right inside the bottom of the machine, there is a tech. guide wrapped in plastic mounted on the side wall. It will tell you each code, and what to do to repair it.

    Good Luck!

    **the washer started flashing "H and F" over and over**

    I found this...a copy...

    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 operation
