the basket but control does not detect a water level change.
• Is water supply connected and turned on?
• Are hose screens plugged?

Good Luck!

SOURCE: Lf what does it mean?

LF = Long Fill
Is water supply connection turned on.
Are hose screens plugged? ( these are inside the inlet on the machine where the hoses connect )
Is water entering the tub? If so, check the pressure hose connection to the machine/motor control. This is the main control unit. There is a service manual inside the machine. If you open the top of the unit with a screw driver in the front, the manual should be on the inside of the front panel.

Check the top spray bar, the jets are most likely clogged especially the one that push it around.

SOURCE: what does the code LF mean?

LF Error code: LF stands for long fill and occurs when the water level does not change for a period of time after the valves are turned on.

All washers are designed to operate with a water supply pressure of 20-100 PSI. When the pressure drops below 20 PSI the washer can have the following problems:

* Slow Fill- low water pressure reduces the speed at which water flows into the machine.
o Verify the pressure at all other water sources in the house (i.e. sinks, showers, etc..). If you find other places where the pressure is low, the problem is not with the machine but with the water supply.
* Continuous Fill- The valve may not fully seat under 20 PSI which would allow for a constant flow even when the machine is not supposed to be filling.
o Contact the water company to verify the pressure being supplied to the house.
* dispenser- Needs a minimum amount of pressure to function. May dispense constantly, at the wrong time, or not at all.
o A plumber may need to be consulted if the pressure is found to be too low.

Things you can check :

* Are the Hot and Cold water faucets turned on
* Are the water hoses kinked
o Make sure all the hose are straight and able to flow water
* Are the screen inside the water valve plugged
o Inlet valve should be free of debris and rust.
o Turn off water and remove the inlet hoses from washer.
o Remove any accumulated film or particles.
o Assure rubber washers are in the end of each inlet hose.
o Reinstall hoses, turn on water and check for leaks.

Error codes can be caused by a Power Surge or other electrical anomaly,attempt to return the washer to operation by following the Hard Reset procedure below.

1. Unplug or turn the circuit breaker off for 30 seconds.
2. Reconnect the unit to the power source by turning the breaker back on or plugging the unit back into the wall outlet.
3. Press the Pause/Cancel/Stop button twice to clear the display.
4. Start a short cycle to check the operation of the machine by selecting a cycle and pressing and holding the start button until the machine starts

What does the error code "lF" mean


Do you mean "LF" if so that's a "long Fill" code. usually means the machine is taking to long to fill. Check your water supply line. Make sure the faucets are fully open, no kinks in the hose's or sediment in any inline filters etc.

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).

Hoses connected; water turned wide open.
Hose screens plugged.themobilian_1134.jpg

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 on my washer?


Hello there:
It is possible your line or tube that goes through the fabric softener dispenser is partially obstructed, giving the LF error which means it is taking too long to fill. I would try cleaning out all of the dispenser lines, and if that does not fix things then you may need to replace the inlet valve assembly which may not be working correctly. or you may want to make sure that your hoses are not all tangled up and are clear of any debris in the screens of the hoses
