LF means a long fill was detected. This means that the washer sensor did not sense enough water coming into the unit in the first 8 minutes after starting the wash cycle.
There are several things that you can check. First, make sure that the incoming water pressure is good. You can try replacing the intake hoses and checking the filters on both sides (inside the washer and at the shut-off valves). (When you take the hoses off the shut-off valves, put a bucket under the outlets and check the flow rate.) Some intake hoses will seal themselves if they detect a leak. This will significantly reduce the water flow. If the filters are clogged, you get a similar restricted flow.
Next, check that the end of the drain hose is not positioned below the fill level of the washer. This will cause the water to be suctioned out of the tub as fast as it fills.
If the water is flowing well, the intake valves or the water pressure sensor (which detects the change in the weight of the tub) could be bad or have a wiring harness problem.
Make sure the breaker is not tripped, make sure you have 120 volts at the plug outlet. make sure you water hot and cold water valves are open. sounds like to me your the fill valve is bad ( thats where your hoses hook to the washer) try to wash a load in cold water only then try hot water only. if you have power most likely its your fill vale
There is a problem with the water supply. This could be a symptom of kinked hoses, clogged filters in the intake valve or low water pressure.
Turn off the water shut-off valves and disconnect the hoses from the washer and then the shut-off valves. Place a bucket under the hoses to catch any water that drains out of the hoses. Check the filters both on the washer and at the shut-off side of the hoses. Sometimes, you need to use needle-nose pliers to pull out the filters from the intake on the washer. Make sure that the hoses are not kinked when you reinstall them. You may want to replace the hoses. There are some hoses that will seal themselves if they detect a leak. This will slow the water flow to the washer.
While you have the hoses off the washer's intake, test the water pressure by measuring the water flow into your bucket when you open the valves.
Also make sure that the washer discharge hose is not below the washer's water level for your load size. This leads to the water flowing in and then out of the washer before it fills the machine.
If the water keeps filling without cutting off, you either have a faulty inlet solenoide or your pressure hose and or pressure switch needs checking.
To isolate the acutal problem, start the machine on a new cycle. Change the water level to minimum or low before you start. Let the machine fill up. Keep checking the water intake as it fill up. Once the water level goes over the half way mark in your tank, if the machine starts its wash action then your pressure hose and switch are o.k. as they have signalled to the timer that the water level selected, has been reached.
However if the machine keeps filling up even though the wash action has started, then you have a faulty inlet solenoide/valve. Turn off water at the tap and get the valve replaced.
HI. This is a Long fill condition. 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 the Machine/motor control does not detect a water level change.
Check the following:
1.Is The water supply connected and turned on?
2.Are the hose screens plugged?(pull the fill hoses, to check the screens on the inlet valve)
3.Is water entering the tub? If so check pressure hose connection to machine/motor control.
If everything above checks out ok, i would advise to use the procedure below to test the electrical connections to the valves, and the valves themselves.
1. Check the relays and electrical connections to the valves by performing the steps under Diagnostic: Manual, then Manual: Water Valves. Each step in the test activates a group of valves. The following steps assumes one (or more) valve(s) failed to turn on. 2. For the valve(s) in question check the individual solenoid valves: Unplug washer or disconnect power. Disconnect connector P1 and P2 from the machine/motor control. Check harness connection to solenoid valves. 3. Check resistance of valve coils at contacts P1 and P2. If resistance readings are tens of ohms outside of range, replace the entire log valve assembly. If resistance readings are within range, replace the machine/motor control assembly. 4. Reconnect connectors P1 and P2 to the machine/motor control.
NOTE:-All the resistance levels for the log vale will be noted in your units user manual
