FYI: The pump cleanout is located on the front of the machine, bottom right corner. There are only three screws holding the bottom cover on. It is easy to get to if you prop it up a few inches off the ground. Just thought this would be helpful as I just did this as of 5 min ago. Should take 10 min. or less.

SOURCE: whirlpool/cabrio washer reads error LF and will not fill machine with water.

The serial number has a two letter designation, the first is where it was assembled and the second is the year. A long fill error can be several items, we all need to know first, how full with water, is your supply low on pressure or do you have a drain hose inserted far enough to cause a siphon condition? You should hear a gurgle splash as it drains.

SOURCE: Whirlpool Cabrio washer is leaking water

The problem happens when your installer throws away the drain hose u-bend, and stuffs the hose as far as it will go down the drain pipe. When this happens the end of the hose can get pushed under water, which causes the washer to siphon out the wash water when it fills. This results in an LF "Long Fill" error.
The solution is to get your installer to come back and install the washer properly.

Great! It may be the water level control switch. So, where is it and how do you check it or fix it or replace it?

SOURCE: I have a whirlpool Cabrio, what does LF error code

The LF error is a water supply fault. Both water supplies must be connected and fully opened. The inlet hoses and valves both have strainers that may need cleaning as this could obstruct the water flow and also check that you don't have any water leaks. The unit requires a minimum water pressure to operate so anything that could prevent the unit getting this pressure will cause this fault. Hope this helps you out!

Whirlpool duet washer LF error


LF error means "Long Fill". Whirlpool uses a flow meter that detects the flow of water entering the washer. If this flow meter does not detect the correct amount of water entering the washer it will sound the LF error code. Often this repair can be made with out calling an appliance repairman and without ordering parts. Start by removing the washer fill hoses; both the cold and the hot water hoses. Check for proper water pressure from the house. To do so, turn the water on and put the hose inside the washer or a bucket.

If water pressure is good, check the water valve inlet screens. Most residential washing machines have inlet screens. The screens prevent minerals from clogging the solenoid. With the hoses removed, you can visually inspect the water inlet screens. If the water valve screens are clear the inlet valve with the screens itself will need to be replaced. To replace the water valve, remove the top of the washing machine. Three screws hold the top down. The screws that hold the top down are on the back of the top panel. Once removed the top will slide back and off. Now remove the wire harness that connects to the valve. One screw holds the valve to the washers cabinet. Removing the screw and sliding the valve over will release the valve from the back panel enabling you to complete your repair.

One last thing to check is the fill hoses. These front load washers call for a lot of water quickly. So if you have stainless steel braided flood-safe hoses, they will trip for no reason at all. Replace these flood safe hoses with more traditional hoses. If the hoses are good and you haven't found anything slowing down the flow of the water, your electronic inlet water valve is just faulty on the back of your washer and will need to be replaced because it's just not allowing water flow into the washer correctly.

Im receiving the LF code what does this mean??


Check that the drain hose and water inlet hose are properly installed, and undo any kinks or clear any clogs if the display error reads "LF" indicating that the load is taking too long to fill, or "Ld" indicating that the washer is taking to long to drain. If the code reads "HC," the hot water hose is installed in the spot for the cold water hose and vice versa.
Also, check this information from Whirlpool DataBase: Display shows LF

Hope helps (remember to rate and comment this answer).

What do I need to do to fix the Lf code problem on my oasis washer?


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.

Lf code on whirlpool cabro


The LF code indicates the washer has taken longer than 8 minutes to fill and as a result has not satisfied the pressure switch that the machine is filled with the required amount of water. This may result from having a low water supply pressure, which can happen if you have a bath, sink taps or hose running while trying to use the machine. This condition can also result if the drain hose is too far into the stand pipe or runs down hill into a floor drain and effectively siphons out water from the machine. Check the drain hose and correct it if either of these are happening otherwise check to see if you really do get enough water flow and pressure on the cold, and if you have a dual fill machine, the hot water supply. It is also worth checking to see if the filter screen at the end of the supply hose is clogged or scaled up in which case you should clean it or descaler it as appropriate.

LF means long fill, so if your hoses arnt blocked and you are getting good flow, try looking at your drain pipe, it should only go about 6 inches into the actual drain and zip tie it there. any further it could syphon the water out of your machine.

Kenmore Oasis has LF code on and won't reset


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.

Kenmore Oasis HE 2708..LF error code


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
