I have a Duet washer model GHW9200LW and keep receiving an error code FH.   I can open the unit check connections etc (on ccu, flowmeter, and pressure switch) and then the unit will operate on the test cycles (C:00 through C:08) without a flaw.  However when I put in a load and try to wash, at some random point in the cycle the unit will error out again with code FH and it seems to stay that way until I fiddle with it again.  I origianlly though this may be an issue with an intermittent connection...however when I run through the "test cycles" the unit runs flawlessly.  If it were truely an intermittent connection I should see problems in a "test cycle".  I ran 15 consecutive "test cycles" without a hitch and cannot complete one wash cycle without the error code FH. To say the least, I'm extremey frustrated.  Any help would be greatly appreciated.

once it is full of water and tumbling,does it periodically fill again until finally erroring out??, i have seen this condition caused by a w/l switch pressure tube that has gotten caught in the pulley,which rubs a hole in the tube ans causes a slow leak which evetually overfills the machine.

I already checked the rubber tube on the pressure switch...I origianlly thought that may be the problem and its fine.  I got in with a ohmmeter last night and checked all the harnesses and they are fine.  Both stages in the pressure switch are working (wheter or not they are actuating at the correct pressure I haven't a clue).  I then removed the flow meter and put the ohmmeter across it to see if I could get contact pulses(switch opening and closing) out of it while blowing through it.  At first I got no pulses so I blew very hard through the flow meter and then all of a sudden I got the pulses.  So I guess at this point either something had gummed up the flow meter or I have a flow meter on the fritz.

I put the machine back together and ran it on the heavy cycle (without a load in) which is one hour and fifteen minutes and it ran through the complete cycle.  I'll try a load of laundry tonight and see what happens.
