Getting LF code - has worked fine for a year

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.

You could be having a problem with your hall sensor. I would recommend you call Samsung for a warranty service call. The machine should have a 1 year parts and labor warranty so let them fix it for free.

Good afternoon. Here is my problem : Approximately one year ago between (November and December) we started using this White Kenmore Elite Oasis washing machine [ Mod. 110. 28032701. Ser. 0470359 Type...

LF is a long fill code. So it is taking a long time for the washer to get water. Is this happening on the cold or hot water temp selection? Does the water seem to be filling OK? If not check your hoses for clogs or kinks. Then check the water valve screens for clogs. If no clogs are detected and the water is running in the machine slowly and out of the hose (when disconnected from the machine) regularly then you have a water valve problem.

Washing machine displays an LF error code. Started last week during whitest whites cycle in rinse. I cancelled and just did rinse to finish my load. All other cycles worked and yesterday all started...

LF = 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.

Maytag Bravos top load gives LF code..not working ... any idea?

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.

LF code comes on frequently

I had the same problem. I pulled the drain hose out and it made a strange gulping noise, as if it was plugged up. Now it works fine. I think LF stands for low flow. Maybe your drain isn't working right.

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.
