SOURCE: Stopping mid cycle and won't spin

"F02" is a Long Drain error. This is usually caused by debris build up in the drain pump. The following link explains the error and what to do:

The washer will not complete a cycle if it senses a condition that generates an error code. Follow the advice in the link provided and you should be okay. Now...it doesn't take much to cause irrepairable damage to the drain pumps in these washers. If you do everything I suggest and the error code returns, it is recommended that you replace the drain pump. I hope this helps you. Let me know if you require additional assistance.

SOURCE: kenmore elite front load washer has LF error message

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.

All washers are designed to operate with a water supply pressure of 20-100 PSI. When the pressure drops below 20 PSI the washer can have the following problems:

* Slow Fill- low water pressure reduces the speed at which water flows into the machine.
o Verify the pressure at all other water sources in the house (i.e. sinks, showers, etc..). If you find other places where the pressure is low, the problem is not with the machine but with the water supply.
* Continuous Fill- The valve may not fully seat under 20 PSI which would allow for a constant flow even when the machine is not supposed to be filling.
o Contact the water company to verify the pressure being supplied to the house.
* dispenser- Needs a minimum amount of pressure to function. May dispense constantly, at the wrong time, or not at all.
o A plumber may need to be consulted if the pressure is found to be too low.

Things you can check :

* Are the Hot and Cold water faucets turned on
* Are the water hoses kinked
o Make sure all the hose are straight and able to flow water
* Are the screen inside the water valve plugged
o Inlet valve should be free of debris and rust.
o Turn off water and remove the inlet hoses from washer.
o Remove any accumulated film or particles.
o Assure rubber washers are in the end of each inlet hose.
o Reinstall hoses, turn on water and check for leaks.

Error codes can be caused by a Power Surge or other electrical anomaly,attempt to return the washer to operation by following the Hard Reset procedure below.

1. Unplug or turn the circuit breaker off for 30 seconds.
2. Reconnect the unit to the power source by turning the breaker back on or plugging the unit back into the wall outlet.
3. Press the Pause/Cancel/Stop button twice to clear the display.
4. Start a short cycle to check the operation of the machine by selecting a cycle and pressing and holding the start button until the machine starts

Voltage for the tail lamps shows to be a brown wire. Use a test light, check that wire for voltage, headlamp switch on. If voltage then check black ground wire.
A problem with grounds will cause some weird things to happen. Ground wires are black. You can use a test light to check ground, one end of testlight comes from battery voltage, the other end you touch ground, black wire, you have to penetrate the insulation. If the lite comes on, at least the ground is good enough for the test light.
At the moment, I don't care about the maker lamps. I do care about tail--stop--turn--tag lamp. In the past, I have been stopped because of no tag light.
Just my opinion.https://s9.postimg.org/af5e5kqtb/tail_lamps.jpg

What does LF mean on the washer? When I start my load it pops up as LF and stops washing. What do I need to do or what is wrong?


LF (F30)
LF flashes when the control don't sense any water coming in like it is supposed to do. Things to check:
Hoses connected; water turned wide open.
Hose screens plugged.themobilian_1134.jpg
Is water siphoning out due to having the drain hose too low? (30 inches above the floor)
Pressure hose from tub to control loose, pinched, hole, Sediment in tub? themobilian_1135.jpgthemobilian_1136.jpgBlow that tubing out and re-secure; retry with water OUT of tub so the pressure can properly build in that tubing. themobilian_1137.jpg

The washer started to fill with water, but I don't know if it was the right amount. Anyway, the main problem is the tumbling basket is trying to tumble, but it does about an inch and stops. I thought...


When it comes to getting a detailed answer from the expert a suggestion to help you is providing specific details in what is happening to the appliance as well as adding the model number to help us do a better diagnoses. Just add any additional information or model number to this post.

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.
