Check the inlet hoses for plugged screens at the faucet ends. The screens are usually replaceable if you can't get them clean in a white vinegar/hot water solution. Check the inlet ports to the washer for similar screens. Hope this helps!
Barrel -ok, your tub is full of water, check the lid switch. If it is not the problem you will have to give more information........To get at the lid switch you have to rotate the control panel up, it is either fastened with screws in the back side of the end caps or you push in to release some spring at the base of the end caps of the panel. Usually there are three wires to a lid switch, the center is the ground with the outside two being hot and neutral.
I recently had this problem. It was found that the main drive belt broke and the washer would fill but not spin, agitate or drain. I replaced the belt and everything worked again. A defective or disconnected cover switch would also cause the same problem.
In reference to the LF error code on your Kenmore Washer
When your washer displays error LF , it is due to low water pressure, slow or continuous fill.All washers are designed to operate with a water supply pressure of 20-100 PSI. When the pressure drops below 20 PSI the washer can have the following problems;
* Slow Fill- low water pressure reduces the speed at which water flows into the machine. o Verify the pressure at all other water sources in the house (i.e. sinks, showers, etc..). If you find other places where the pressure is low, the problem is not with the machine but with the water supply. * Continuous Fill- The valve may not fully seat under 20 PSI which would allow for a constant flow even when the machine isn't supposed to be filling. o Contact the water company to verify the pressure being supplied to the house * Error Codes- LF for long fill or FH for no water detected. o A plumber may need to be consulted if the pressure is found to be too low.
