    I have the same problem with my calypso washer . I found that if I take off the pump wire on the motor control board and start a load that it works fine till it gets to the spin cycle. Then I have to hook the wire back up so it will spin. Then unhook it again so it will fill up and rinse. Then hook it up again on the final spin cycle. What I think is happing is the pump is trying to pump out the water of the washer at the same time the washer is trying to resercalate the water in the waher. I have ordered a new motor control board for the washer and hope that is what controls it.

    Service guy sait it was at the minimum a new motor control board at $185. May also be main board at another $200-250. Either way, more that I want to invest in an 8 year old machine. Bought new Maytag front loader on sale at Sears.

It is not the drain hose being to low that it syphons the water out. I can hear the pump running (draining ). And it is not supose to when the washer is filling up. I think it is in one of the boards but dont know witch one. Any and all HELP would be great ! !
Thanks

I'm not sure if this will help or not. Check the drain hose. Make sure that at part of the drain hose loops above the the machine. There is always a possiblility when the hose is not high enough it will start to syphon the water out.

    The pump gets its' signal from the motor control board. So many things can go wrong that will cause the pump to engage.

When i start the washer it fills through the first cycle (presoak). then when it tries to fill it kicks the code LF...


That code usually means that it is taking too long to fill. This could be one of the water inlets and not the other. Example is the hot water wont fill fast but the cold will. When on presoak, the water temp is not critical and neither is the speed. When you get to a wash cycle then temperature comes into play as well as how fast it needs to fill. Check the screens on the back of the valves to make sure they are not full of debris, make sure valves are open all the way and hoses are no kinked.

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

Kenmore Front Load Washer filling up and giving LF warning


The FL error code means:
Flood Condition:
FL flashes if any overfill condition occurs. This condition occurs when excessive water in the tub causes the overfill switch to trip. The control must realize that the trip was due to an overfill condition instead of a suds lack condition in order for FL to be displayed

With an overfill condition, the beeper repeats a warning every 10 seconds with no time-out. The pump is cycled in drain mode for 30 seconds on, 30 seconds off until the overfill switch resets or power is discontinued to the unit.

Press STOP/CANCEL to clear the display.

This problem I see on these are the water pumps getting clogged with lint or other things, causing the pump not to pump all of the water out at times.

There is a check "valve" in the drain assembly that seems to sometimes cause problems with the FL error code. You can remove this piece, and might avoid changing the pump.

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.

You will need to check you fill hoses this is 95% of the problem in the rear of the unit ther are two hoses Hot and Cold feeds shut off the water and Unplug the unit Then remove the hoses from the machine. in the Valve where the hoses go to there are little mesh screens they are most likely clogged take a eyeglass screwdriver or paper clip and hook the screens pull them out carefully and clean them reinstall and connect hose and test

Kenmore Oasis HE 2708..LF error code


LF = Long Fill
If the water is on and screens are clean there is a test you can do to check the log valve. There should be a repair manual inside the front panel of the machine. If yo use a screw driver in the front to open the top you should find it on the inside of the front panel. Good Luck
