My Kenmore top loading series 700 type 580 is given me a LF code can u help

LF is the error code for Long Fill.

Sometimes a bad or plugged water inlet valve YOU MAY need to replace the water valve.
In SOME cases the drain hose wash may be siphoning the water out of the washer as it tried to fill.

pulled the drain hose up out of the stand pipe a little to keep it from siphoning

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.

ERROR COAD LF, what does it mean?

Final forth ;-0) (the F could stand for Filter or Fill or LF for Lock Fault ) Hi from retired Englishman in SW France,

Sorry but you have posted at least 4 problems but against different makes and models which makes it difficult to define what your particular 'LF' stands for- different makes, models, often different meanings so here is a practical answer!.

You will need to type into your search engine/web browser '(make model number) washer manual' and you should be presented with a number of sources from which you can either download for free or have to pay a nominal amount.
You could also try the manufacturer's web site direct ;-0)

If this has assisted you please consider a 4 thumbs up for the rating.
Thanks and good luck!

We just bought the washer and now it will stay on for 5 mins then all buttons blink and it says LF

LF stands for long fill,if it takes longer than a preset time by the machine it will go to LF,check water fill hoses for kinks,plugging that will slow down water fill time

When heavy duty laundry is done it washes and rinses,but when light washes are done it washes but doesn't rinse, LF comes on the controll panel.

LF Error code: LF stands for long fill and occurs when the water level does not change for a period of time after the valves are turned on. Make sure your water supply is turned all the way on and that you have good line pressure. If all that is ok, then I would replace the water valve on the machine.
Here is a link to the part you need.

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

Whirlpool Cabrio is flashing a LF code and all the lights on the machine are flashing at the same time. Do you know what the problem could be?

You may have accidentally put the machine in demo mode or one of the test modes in diagnostics. Try unplugging unit for a couple of minutes and restarting to reset board. It may be something else more serious, or difficult to find, but it cost nothing to try.....
good luck

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.

What does this key do?

LF means line feed. This was a common key on typewriters. Now we just use the "Enter" or "Return" key.
Return meant the return of the carriage (the part on the typewriter that holds the paper and moves side to side as you type).

Basically, this just starts a new line for your text.

You can see this by typing a text message then add the LF and keep typing.
You can see the above text by scrolling with your finger.
