Question about Kenmore Oasis HE 27082 Top Load Washer
Just got done with warranty last week. Now getting LF code a little ways into the cycle on every cycle I have tried. Manual says that means it is "Taking too long to fill", and to check the hoses (I have taken both off and they are clear - the taps are also both fine), and also check to see if the water inlet valve screens are clear (I assume those are the thin metal screens at the entrance of the inlet valves of the machine). One of the screens was loose so I pulled it out, the other seems secure. Behind the screen that I took out seems to be a solid black plastic piece with a small white plastic piece in the center that seems to have a small hole in it. It seems like it is supposed to be there, but it's hard to figure out at first glance how water is supposed to get in there past the black plastic. Does anyone have any solutions?
May sound funny, but be sure that you only have about six inches of drain hose going into the stand pipe (house line). If you have more than that, the excess line will cause siphoning, and it wont fill right. Check that out, maybe it will help you out. Good Luck!!! Jim

I have had some success with this problem by running an empty load of rinse, drain, and spin. This for some reason seems to clear the error message.
