Question about Whirlpool Washing Machines

My whirlpool cabrio washer shows LF code

I have changed the water supply hoses for brand new ones, I have checked the screens, i have verified i am getting good flow from the source, and i have checked to make sure my drain pipe isnt down the standpipe too far. I dont know what else it could be! Please please help! Another thing...it only happens during the rinse cycle.

Verify inlet water valve is functioning correctly by selecting each temp while machine is running. Usually COLD temps will run just
ever-so-slightly faster than HOT temp and WARM temp will run faster than both temps separately. Rinse cycle is usually COLD water so i'd suspect the COLD side is malfunctioning. Hope this helps. If not let me know.

    Thanks for the help, sorry for the late reply. It appears to be only happening on cold water rinses... Not warm water rinse. How would I go about fixing this?

  • B.H. Countryman Jan 30, 2013

    You will have to change out the inlet water valve. If you have trouble finding one give me the full model number that is on the washer (usually found around inside of the door lip) and i can give you some options. It's an easy DIY fix.

SOURCE: Maytag washer PAV2300 water over flow

tidalwave If the water continues to flow even when the washer timer and the power to the washer are off then you are right and the water inlet valve has to be replaced. If it does it only when the washer is on then it could be different problems. In that case the first thing you have to check is the water level switch. This is the device which controls the water level. Remove the power first.Open the control panel and you will see the switch on the left side. There is the clear plastic hose connected to the switch. Make sure the hose is not loose. This is one of the most common cause of overflow. If it got loose, drain out all water from the washer before you reconnect the hose. If this is not the issue then you have to check the continuity across the water level switch therminals. When there is no water you should measure the continuity across therminals 11 and 12 (gray and orange wires). Whet the tub has filled up with water you should measure the continuity across therminals 11 and 14 (gray and light blue wires). If the continuity is wrong replace the water level switch. If you are going to do it, make sure there is no water in the tub before you will remove the clear plastic hose from the old switch. Good luck. Gendos. post back...

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.

SOURCE: Water will not drain during the rinse cycle

A lot of those front load type washers have problems resulting from overuse of detergent. You should remove the panel and clean ot the sludge and lint inside. Service Manualb8c024f.jpg

What is the LF Code my washer puts out


Hi Sherry,

The code definition for LF is a LONG Fill (F30). What does that mean is the next question? Here goes.

a. The fill hose may have a pinch or fold between the connections on the pressure in .
b. Are the hose screens plugged at the connections.
c. Is the water siphoning out of the drain hose ?
d. Is the water pressure at peak, check valve, filters before washer.

Now if your savvy hungry. Here is a learning curve link
Washing Machine Diagnostic Test Error Codes Cabrio Bravo Kenmore Oasis .


Okay. The next link is for the manual for your favorite machine. Manuals and Troubleshooting Whirlpool Whirlpool Cabrio Washer Fault Codes . I tried this and you need registration.


I decided to go one step further and track down a printable and savable resource for you. Yes, all, the fault codes and what they mean.

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).

My washer deplayes LF and when that shows the machine unlocks and water in still in tub water does not fall down


Hi,


Thanks for using FixYa. Error LF means long fill, which flashes when the water level won’t change for a period of time after the valves are turned on or the water has disengaged the basket but control does not detect a water level change. TO resolve this issue check if the water supply is turned on and the hose screens are not plugged or kinked. If the water is not entering the machine then check the water valve, also check the pressure hose connection to the machine/motor control. Please do rate the solution if the issue is resolved or post a comment for further assistance.


Thanks

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.
