Sometimes, what appears to be a major problem, may only be a simple matter of placement of the drain hose. An easy test is to pull the drain hose out of the standpipe. If a sucking sound is heard while lifting the hose, you have a vacuum caused by lack of a proper air gap. If you still have questions, or require additional assistance, please let me know BEFORE you rate the solution. I hope this helps you.

Your drain hose is too far down into the pipe behind the washer. What's happening is your drain hose is actually siphoning water from th washer the same time its trying to fill up. Pull the drain hose up from the drain pipe and secure it so its doesnt fly out when the washer is draining. Check too see if the problem goes away. If not pull the drain hose out more repeat steps.
try this the drain hose from the washer is stuck to far down the drain .allow only 8 to 10 inches down drain if the house drain is lower than top of tub it will do the same thing. raise the drain haundi24
Your drain line is too low or there is a air gap blockage.
Remove the drain line from the drain and hold it up high while filling with water and see if it fills and stops.
If so, correct the drain line problem.The drain hose should be 36 inches from the floor.
Hello , here is the fix-your drain hose is placed to low in the drain line in the wall, it can not be placed in water or it will siphon the water out of your washer into the drain pipe and it wont stop until it hits air. try pulling your drain hose up and out of the drain and get a zip tie or cable and tie it to one of the water valves by the drain pipe placing the end of the drain hose about 5-6 inches inside the drain pipe. Let me know if you have any other questions and good luck it will work.
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.
the drain pipe in the wall needs to be as tall as the cabnet of the washer. if it is the see how much hose is going into the drain pipe. should only be about 9 to 12 inches into the pipe. any more than that will cause a syphon and suck the water out as it fills
The problem you are experiencing is called "siphoning". Check the drain hose going into the standpipe (drain pipe). If the hose is shoved down in the standpipe too far, or if you've sealed the top of the standpipe where the hose goes into, you have created a vacuum and are causing the water to continuously drain. The drain line needs an air gap to prevent this problem. Pull the drain hose back out enough to allow an air gap and make sure you don't have anything covering the top of the standpipe. Hope this helps.
