  • B0041
The inflatable restraint side impact module-LF deployment loop consists of the inflatable restraint side impact module-LF, the inflatable restraint side impact module wiring harness, and the side impact module-LF high and low circuits. A shorting bar used within the side impact module-LF connector shorts together the side impact module-LF high and low circuits when the connector is disconnected. This helps to prevent unwanted deployment of the inflator module during servicing. During a side or frontal crash of sufficient force the inflatable restraint Sensing and Diagnostic Module (SDM) allows current to flow through the deployment loop in order to deploy the side impact module-LF. When the ignition is turned ON, the SDM performs continuous diagnostic tests on the deployment loops to check for proper circuit continuity and for shorts to ground or voltage. If a malfunction is detected, a Diagnostic Trouble Code (DTC) will be stored in memory.

Ignition 1 voltage is within the normal operating voltage range.

  • DTC B0040 will set when the side impact module-LF deployment loop resistance is less than 1.3 ohms for 500 milliseconds .
  • DTC B0041 will set when one of the following conditions occurs:
  • Side impact module-LF high circuit is less than 2.4 volts and the side impact module-LF deployment loop is more than 6 ohms for 500 milliseconds .
  • Side impact module-LF deployment loop resistance is more than 4.8 ohms for 500 milliseconds .
  • DTC B0045 will set when one of the following conditions occur:
  • Side impact module-LF high and/or low circuits is short to ground or short to voltage for 500 milliseconds .
  • Side impact module-LF high circuit is less than 2.4 volts and side impact module-LF deployment loop resistance is less than 6 ohms for 500 milliseconds .
The SDM commands the AIR BAG indicator ON via Class 2 serial data.

  • The condition responsible for setting the DTC no longer exists and the scan tool Clear DTCs function is used.
  • A history DTC will clear once 255 malfunction free ignition cycles have occurred.
The following are possible causes of the malfunction:
  • A short between the side impact module-LF high and low circuits
  • An open or a high resistance in the side impact module-LF high or low circuits
  • A short to ground or a short to voltage in the side impact module-LF high or low circuits
  • The side impact module-LF connector
  • The SDM connector
  • A malfunctioning side impact module-LF
  • A malfunctioning SDM

What does LF mean on the washer? When I start my load it pops up as LF and stops washing. What do I need to do or what is wrong?

LF (F30)
LF flashes when the control don't sense any water coming in like it is supposed to do. Things to check:
Hoses connected; water turned wide open.
Hose screens plugged.themobilian_1134.jpg
Is water siphoning out due to having the drain hose too low? (30 inches above the floor)
Pressure hose from tub to control loose, pinched, hole, Sediment in tub? themobilian_1135.jpgthemobilian_1136.jpgBlow that tubing out and re-secure; retry with water OUT of tub so the pressure can properly build in that tubing. themobilian_1137.jpg

What does LF mean - my kemore washer quit working


mean while LF error code indicates that the water temperature sensor reading is out of range (below 23 degrees F or above 217 degrees F).

The LF error code is an indication of a water temperature sensor error. There is a chance that there is a loose wire connection on the water temperature

however,what you need to do tp fix up the problem is to unscrew the washer then clean up all forms of dry and water you can seen in it with this the problem of the LF error code is solve .

please make sure that all form of power supply is put OFF before you can do this

thank you and thanks for using fixya.

Code lf keeps popping up

lf code means long fill. If the water fill time exceeds 10 minutes, the water valves are turned off and lf is flashed. Press STOP/CANCEL to clear the display.

Whirlpool Cabrio is flashing a LF code and all the lights on the machine are flashing at the same time. Do you know what the problem could be?

You may have accidentally put the machine in demo mode or one of the test modes in diagnostics. Try unplugging unit for a couple of minutes and restarting to reset board. It may be something else more serious, or difficult to find, but it cost nothing to try.....
good luck

What does LF means? and what should I do

See the following Whirlpool Service Manual for their Cabrio washer which is basically the same as the Kenmore Oasis.$FILE/8178583.pdf

Long Fill
LF 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.
• Is water supply connected and turned on?
• Are hose screens plugged?
• Is water entering the tub? If so check pressure hose connection to machine/motor control.
• See TEST #2.

Have same problem. Service tech said LF code is caused by low water pressure coming into machine. Tech verified water flow looked fine, getting new controller installed tomorrow.
