The F1 error code on this washer indicates a Primary Control Board failure.
It is likely that the machine control board will need to be replaced to correct this problem.
The part number for the machine control board is undetermineable because you have not provided me with the exact model # of your washer.
The procedure for replacing the machine control board is provided HERE
NOTE: Be sure to unplug the washer to disconnect electrical power before accessing internal components.
There is a slight possibility that a problem with the pressure switch hose could be causing this problem.
A pinched or twisted air hose can cause this fault code.
When you open the console, check the air hose connected to the pressure switch on the machine control board.
If it is pinched or crimped, I recommend rerouting the hose to resolve this problem.
This may fix your problem without replacing the control board.
NOTE: You may want to check for this condition before ordering the control board. Most electronic control boards cannot be returned for a refund or credit.
If you find no apparent problems with the air hose on the pressure switch, then replacing the machine control board on this washer should correct your problem. There is a risk involved in replacing this part yourself.
As noted above, you could have a problem with the air pressure hose that is not apparent upon your initial inspection. A service technician would normally need to properly and thoroughly diagnose this problem before replacing the control board.

SOURCE: error code on kenmore washer
LG washing machines indicating error code CL may have the child lock activated.
Try holding down the temperature and eco/rapid options together to turn off child lock.
Some LG series use "TEMP and OPTION" at the same time.

I had the same problem. I ended up paying $300 ($100 part $200 labour) for an authorized technician to replace the control board and that fixed the problem.

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.

Tips for a great answer:
thank you for choosing sears, i will be more than happy to assist you with your kenmore washer.
from the information you have provided above, the code that shows on the washer indicates an issue with the clutch or the main control unit. being the fact that you have replaced both parts and are still having the same issue with the washer. i would highly recommend having a technician go out to take a look at the issue. it can be the wire harness is not connected correctly to the clutch motor as well. i would check all connectors make sure everything is connected properly. if everything checks out okay with that, then i'd suggest setting up a service call.
