Whirlpool Cabrio washer is leaking water

I think the error code was LF but not sure. The washer has been leaking water all over the floor.

    We've had the washer for over 3 years! My husband just took the washer apart and found a hole in one of the motor casings (?). He's going to try and gorilla glue it and/or JB Weld it.

The problem happens when your installer throws away the drain hose u-bend, and stuffs the hose as far as it will go down the drain pipe. When this happens the end of the hose can get pushed under water, which causes the washer to siphon out the wash water when it fills. This results in an LF "Long Fill" error.
The solution is to get your installer to come back and install the washer properly.

Hi

Error code LF means Long Fill. If the water fill time exceeds ten minutes, the water valves are turned off and LF is flashed. Press STOP/CANCEL to clear the display.

Please do rate the solution as FixYa and revert for further assistance.

Thanks

What does LF mean


LF generally means "long fill error," which is generated when your washer is not getting the correct amount of water. This could be because of a clogged inlet screen, a leak which is causing low water pressure or a faulty inlet valve. You may want to contact Whirlpool for instructions on checking or replacing your hose, or cleaning the inlet screen.

Whirlpool LF Error code


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.

I have a whirlpool Cabrio, what does LF error code mean and how do i fix it??


The LF error is a water supply fault. Both water supplies must be connected and fully opened. The inlet hoses and valves both have strainers that may need cleaning as this could obstruct the water flow and also check that you don't have any water leaks. The unit requires a minimum water pressure to operate so anything that could prevent the unit getting this pressure will cause this fault. Hope this helps you out!
