The dreaded LF code

MY KENMORE ELITE OASIS WILL NOT FILL UP AT ALL. I KEEP GETTING LF CODE(LONG FILL). SEARS SERVICE TECH SAID THE PROBLEM WAS THE WATER INLET VALVE AND CHARGED ME $270 DOLLARS WITHOUT EVEN TESTING THE MACHINE. I THINK THEY KNOW THIS VALVE IS DEFECTIVE. I WILL NEVER BUY SEARS PRODUCTS AGAIN.

HI, there is not a defect notice or recall on this particular unit but, we get a lot of complaints about this specific issue concerning the LF code on a frequent basis. this issue dose concern the inlet valve.

The replacement will work better than the factory installed piece. This is basically a blind defect.(defective factory part).

What is the LF code on my kenmore elite oasis


The LF code stands for long fill.. I would suspect a water inlet solenoid valve as the most likely suspect. It may be the hot or the cold valve. If the valve does not completely open the time to fill your machine takes too long. You can't replace just the one valve because the part contains all of the water inlet valves. That of course jacks up the cost but what can you do.

What does the code LF stand for? It keeps stopping half way through the wash cycle and flashes this code.


LF is for 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.

Check the following:
? Is water supply connected and turned on?
? Are hose screens plugged?
? Is water entering the tub?

If all these are good and water is going in fast (both hot and cold) you may need a service company to come out and take a look

What do I need to do to fix the Lf code problem on my oasis washer?


Following is the LF troubleshooting response from the Whirlpool Cabrio
Service Manual. The Cabrio is the same as the Kenmore Oasis.

“LF” (Washer is taking too long to fill)
Check the following:
Are the water inlet hoses kinked or clogged?
Are the water inlet valve screens clear?
Are both water faucets turned on?
Is the drain hose sticking too far into the
standpipe (siphoning)?
Is the pressure transducer hose kinked or
dislodged?
Press PAUSE/CANCEL to clear display.


It takes a while to load but following is the manual in PDF format.

Washer LF code sears kenmore 80 series


It means that your machine is taking longer then a specified time (~10 Mins) to fill!! Check your water pressure, the water valves, the little filters in the hose, where it screws into the water and/or machine. Good Luck

Kenmore Oasis has LF code on and won't reset


The LF code indicates "Long Fill" which means it is taking too long for the water to fill the washer (times out). From the owner's manual:

"LF" (Washer is taking too long to fill)
Check the following:
Are the water inlet hoses kinked or clogged?
Are the water inlet valve screens clear?
Press STOP to clear display.

Here's a suggestion I found that worked for me:

Check your drain hose to see it it's stuffed too far down the standpipe. Another poster had this problem and it gave her LF errors. If the drain hose hangs down too far it can siphon water out of the washer, and then the washer thinks it's taking too long too fill. There's supposed to be a U-shaped plastic bracket that sets the length of the drain hose where it goes into the standpipe. Your installer may have tossed it.
