My first Oasis kept getting LF (long fill) errors.. they ordered a part that was on backorder for 3 weeks, so instead Sears replaced the washer with another identical one. I've had the replacement for 4 days and now I get DU (door unlock) error, and the lid will not unlock.
I've tried the cancel/stop button and unplugging for a few minutes and then plugging it back up and hitting cancel.. not working. My wet clothes are stuck inside. Any other suggestions before the repairman is called?

Re: Oasis - DU and LF error codes
Ky, see if you can put the machine in the service mode by doing this: turn the washer on, select any one button except for power,start and stop. press and hold it for 3 seconds--release for 3 seconds--press and hold for 3 seconds--release for 3 seconds--press and hold for 3 seconds....if you entered it correctly all the indicators will light for 5 seconds and 88 will show in the 2 digit display..It will now go into a automatic test cycle. If no faults are found it should unlock the top. This auto test will go through c0 to c9, you will see it in the display. If this all fails, you can access your wash by pushing in the clips on the left and right side front of the washer lid. The whole top will lift up. I would still call for service while it's under warranty. Catriver...post back.

The LF code stands for long fill.. I would suspect a water inlet solenoid valve as the most likely suspect. It may be the hot or the cold valve. If the valve does not completely open the time to fill your machine takes too long. You can't replace just the one valve because the part contains all of the water inlet valves. That of course jacks up the cost but what can you do.
Hi LF means Long Fill, this error flashes when the water level does not change for a period of time after the valves are turned on OR water has disengaged the basket but control does not detect a water level change. Check whether water supply is connected and turned on. Make sure the hose is not blocked and hose screen is clear. If so make sure pressure hose connection to machine/motor control is fine. Also check the continuity of water inlet valve, use a multimeter to check the continuity. Hope this helps... Please post back if you need more information. Daniel
Door unlock failure Excessive force on door lid is preventing lock bolt from retracting. Wash media buildup is preventing lock bolt from retracting. Machine/motor control cannot determine if door lid is in an unlocked state. See TEST #8, page 14
Hi There I have found something for to read and this should help you. Try this and let me know how it goes.
If the water
fill time exceeds ten minutes, the water valves are turned
off and LF is flashed.
Press STOP/CANCEL to clear the display. Thank you for writing to fix ya. Merry X-Mass and a Happy New Year. Best Regards Richard
"LF" is a Long Fill error. If the fill time exceeds roughly 10 minutes, the fill valves are shut down and the error code is generated. If the error does not clear, or keeps reoccurring, it is recommended that you doublecheck to make sure your water taps are on all the way and check the hoses for kinks or clogs. If everything checks okay, check the screens on the fill valve for sediment build up. You may need to replace the valve.
If you have error code FL it means flood condition i.e. FL flashes if any overfill condition occurs. This condition occurs when excessive water in the tub causes the overfill switch to trip. The control must realize that the trip was due to an overfill condition instead of a suds lack condition in order for FL to be displayed. With an overfill condition, the beeper repeats a warning every 10 seconds with no time-out. The pump is cycled in drain mode for 30 seconds on, 30 seconds off until the overfill switch resets or power is discontinued to the unit. Press STOP/CANCEL to clear the display.
If its LF which means long fill i.e. when the water fill time exceeds ten minutes, the water valves are turned off and LF is flashed. Press STOP/CANCEL to clear the display.

The LF code indicates "Long Fill" which means it is taking too long for the water to fill the washer (times out). From the owner's manual:
"LF" (Washer is taking too long to fill)
Check the following:
Are the water inlet hoses kinked or clogged?
Are the water inlet valve screens clear?
Press STOP to clear display.
Here's a suggestion I found that worked for me:
Check your drain hose to see it it's stuffed too far down the standpipe. Another poster had this problem and it gave her LF errors.
If the drain hose hangs down too far it can siphon water out of the washer, and then the washer thinks it's taking too long too fill.
There's supposed to be a U-shaped plastic bracket that sets the length of the drain hose where it goes into the standpipe. Your installer may have tossed it.
LF = Long Fill
If the water is on and screens are clean there is a test you can do to check the log valve. There should be a repair manual inside the front panel of the machine. If yo use a screw driver in the front to open the top you should find it on the inside of the front panel. Good Luck
