"LF" Long Fill Fault Code on Whirlpool Cabiro HE Washer

About a month ago, I purchased a Whripool Cabiro HE Washer. I recently tried to run the "Clean with Affresh" Cycle and received the "LF" fault code about 5 minutes after the cycle started. Tried to clear it and restart, but no success. The "LF" code also came in when running the "Whitest Whites" cycle. All other cylces work fine. I contacted whrilpool and described my problem, explaining to them that water supply lines and discharge hose were fine. I checked these after reading about this fault code in the owners manual. Whirlpool's response was to check the water supply and drain line. There is nothing wrong with the water supply or drainline. Not sure if there is anything else I can do other than call a service repair person. Any ideas?

The LF code is for long fill. it will happen if the washer fills for longer then 8 minutes and has not satisfied the pressure switch that the unit is full enough with water.
you might get this code from the unit not having enough water or if the drain hose is too far into the stand pipe or runs down hill into a floor drain.
check the drain hose and correct it if either of these are happening.
other wise check to see if you really do get enough water on the cold and the hot sides of your water supply.

There is an electronic timer, did they mention how long the fill should take on average and when the timer signals fill time exceeded?

    I've got a Whirlpool Cabrio, from day one I could never get enough water out of the machine, no matter the size load, to wash and rinse my clothes decently . I had a warranty so i called and made a complaint, the repair people put in a new mother board, that did not help one bit. the water level in my machine is much too little each and everytime and many people complain about this same issue, not just me. What a horrid product I purchased, not like I can drag it back to the store

    Make them fix it? Have a cheap Sears top loader that is 10 years old, never an issue of any kind, My advise these so called High efficiency washers are a scam to get your money.

Whirlpool LF code reset


The Long Fill code occurs when the washer takes more than ten minutes to fill. Although the replacement level sensor could be defective, it is more likely a control board defect because of the timed fill.

What is the LF Code my washer puts out


Hi Sherry,

The code definition for LF is a LONG Fill (F30). What does that mean is the next question? Here goes.

a. The fill hose may have a pinch or fold between the connections on the pressure in .
b. Are the hose screens plugged at the connections.
c. Is the water siphoning out of the drain hose ?
d. Is the water pressure at peak, check valve, filters before washer.

Now if your savvy hungry. Here is a learning curve link

Try cleaning your inlet valve filters. Turn off your water supply and remove the hoses from the washer. The filter screens are located just inside of the valves. Just twist them out, clean, and reinstall.

Good luck.

Whirlpool Duet was purchased December 2009 and lately has a strong odor. Does this front loader have a filter we can clean? Please advise how to get rid of this ongoing odor.


There is no filter but you might want to remove the bottom front cover and clean out the sump filter(a large white thumb screw attached to pump) turn to the left. After cleaning this out get a product called Affresh available at grocery and other stores. Put your unit on a clean cycle. If you can't find affresh try a cup of bleach and run that through a clean cycle. Another tip leave your door open when not in use

My clothes smell as if the washer uses recycled water.


Purchase Affresh, Place 2 Tabs into your washer and run through a cycle. This will keep your washer smelling fresh. Do this every 2 or 3 months, or you can have the boot replaced.

Don’t wait for the machine to jam to look into your filter.

You can use Affresh to clean your front loader. Deposits of soap and other such things can be stuck around the inside tub of your washer. Try this product, it works great on all front loaders. Use very hot water with the Affresh pellet with no clothes and run the machine through a cycle. Also helps with any stagnant water smells. Put the Affresh pellet inside the machine, not in the soap dispenser.

You can give me a ‘very helpful’ rating for the free help, can't you. Thanks.

I have a Whirlpool cabrio washer that displays LF when I try to start a wash load. The water comes into the tub but it doesn't fill. After some time, maybe 10 minutes, the washer stops and displays LF....


Aha the old LF : Captain we have a problem. What is it Spock? Computers cannot confirm water is filling, water level does not change. Spock you did pay the water bill this month? What could it be Spock? Captain the inlet screens appear to have contaminants. Suggest you jettison them. If that does not solve it see test #2b7fe528.jpg
