F/H error code

  • Customer: Harry from Lodi CA
  • Difficulty: Easy
  • Time to Complete: Less than 15 mins
  • Tools Required: Pliers

I replaced the flow meter but that want it, so replaced the water inlet valve and that cured what ailed it. The only pain was that the single screw that holds the part to the washer is a torx rather than a nut like the rest of the back screws. Couldn't see it without pulling the washer all the way out. Hose clamp came off with pliers and the electrical connectors were TIGHT but came off with some effort. Replaced everything and error cleared ok.

need a star srew driver to install

  • Customer: amilee from housotn TX
  • Difficulty: Really easy
  • Time to Complete: Less than 15 mins

The installation requires a star shaped screw driver to remove the existing the screw holding the door handle. The same screws must be saved and used to install the new handle, which does not come with new screws. So, you do not want to strip the screws removing. Plan ahead with the correct screw driver- you can determine what is needed by looking at the screw head and purchasing an appropriate tool. My handy neighbor installed my new handle, but the screws can no longer be removed should I have to replace the handle a second time. The entire time to remove and install took less than five minutes.

The handle is set with two screws (that don't come with the replacement handle so make sure to save them when you take the old handle off). They use the 6 point screwdriver but a regular flathead screwdriver will work - a phillips won't. Take the old screws out, put the new handle on and screw it back in using the old screws. EASY

I followed the online videos and did the install in about 10 minutes. I did not need to drill a new hole for my particular model as others have needed. It was a basic take the old valve unit out and install the new one.

I am a 70 year female - went online to order the part - it arrived a day later - it was absolutely a breeze to repair - I unscrewed the old cracked handle in about two minutes and screwed the new one in in about 2 minutes or less. It couldn't have been easier. I was so pleased that I saved time and money and I could do it myself. The cost of the part was much less than I would have paid at Whirlpool and my labor was free. Thank you Parts Select for making the part available.

I saw a U tube video and followed the presenters instructions. Very simple instruction very simple repair. The Whirlpool Duet is a well designed machine with the mechanical parts easily accessible. I know if if would have had a professional service come and repair if it would have cost several hundred dollars. It cost me the parts, $50.00 (that was for the 3-pack of baffles), 1 beer and my time. "EASY FIX".
