I had a similar problem with an LF code. I had installed "no burst" hoses which have a smaller inside diameter then regular hoses. I switched back to regular hoses and the problem seems to have been eliminated.

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.
The F1 error code means that the computer thinks a button on the touchpad is stuck. Sometimes this can be resolved by making sure the touchpad connector fits tight into the control board. The F1 code can be cleared by pushing CANCEL/OFF. If it returns the touchpad needs to be replaced .
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
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
Following is the LF troubleshooting response from the Whirlpool Cabrio Service Manual. The Cabrio is the same as the Kenmore Oasis.
“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? Are both water faucets turned on? Is the drain hose sticking too far into the standpipe (siphoning)? Is the pressure transducer hose kinked or dislodged? Press PAUSE/CANCEL to clear display.
It takes a while to load but following is the manual in PDF format.
HI, there is not a defect notice or recall on this particular unit but, we get a lot of complaints about this specific issue concerning the LF code on a frequent basis. this issue dose concern the inlet valve.
The replacement will work better than the factory installed piece. This is basically a blind defect.(defective factory part).
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
