DISPLAYS LF (LONG FILL) ERROR CODE WHEN HOT WATER is involved.

My Whirlpool Calypso top loading washing machine displays a LF (Long Fill) error code then stops filling. IF I select COLD water only then it will fill. I cleaned the water intake screens on both hot and cold and no change. From previous research, I was wondering if the problem would be a hot water intake valve? If so, is this something I should call a repair man for or is it a part I can order online and replace myself. I have average repair skills.

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).

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.

What does LF stand for in the display window?


It means long fill and it flashes when the water fill time exceeds ten (10) minutes and the water valves are turned off. Press STOP/CANCEL to clear the display.

It is likely that the water inlet valves are not working. Check if there's water in the tub when the fault code flashes. The water inlet valves are not working if there's no water in the tub.

Hi


Thanks for using FixYa. Error LF indicates 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

Whirlpool Calypso top loading washing machine displays a LF (long fill) error code


I would check the water inlet valve first. Unplug the machine, turn off the water, and remove the supply hoses. Check the small metal screens inside the openings on the valve. Make sure they are clear of rust or debris and check the solenoids using a multimeter or ohmmeter. Check for continuity. A lack of continuity will mean a bad solenoid and the inlet valve assy will need replaced. I will attach a photo for reference. Sorry for your trouble and I hope this helped. Best wishes.

LF code appears and washer does not spin out


This is where to find the manual. When you get to it, it tells you that LF is for long fill which means it is taking longer than ten minutes to fill with water so it shuts off and displays the error code.

Bottom Line : Check your water pressure.
