Lf what does it mean?

Lf code what do it mean.

  • Anonymous Jan 18, 2008

    I am at my wit's end with this washer.  I am getting the LF code.  It started on the load I started after I ran the Clean cycle.  The Clean cycle did not finish and just kept running and running at 7 minutes.  I have had THIS problem since I first got the machine but was told that the machine was not level.  Nothing seemed to help that.  So I wrongly accepted this flaw.  Now I cannot complete a load due to the LF (long fill) light.  Do I need to call the Sears people to come look at this?  I really am beginning to despise this machine.

Make sure you are using the factory supplied hoses and not flood control hoses. Had the same problem and had to change the hoses and it was corrected.

LF = Long Fill
Is water supply connection turned on.
Are hose screens plugged? ( these are inside the inlet on the machine where the hoses connect )
Is water entering the tub? If so, check the pressure hose connection to the machine/motor control. This is the main control unit. There is a service manual inside the machine. If you open the top of the unit with a screw driver in the front, the manual should be on the inside of the front panel.

SOURCE: what does the code LF mean?

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

What does the error code "lF" mean

Do you mean "LF" if so that's a "long Fill" code. usually means the machine is taking to long to fill. Check your water supply line. Make sure the faucets are fully open, no kinks in the hose's or sediment in any inline filters etc.

What does LF mean - my kemore washer quit working


mean while LF error code indicates that the water temperature sensor reading is out of range (below 23 degrees F or above 217 degrees F).

The LF error code is an indication of a water temperature sensor error. There is a chance that there is a loose wire connection on the water temperature

however,what you need to do tp fix up the problem is to unscrew the washer then clean up all forms of dry and water you can seen in it with this the problem of the LF error code is solve .

please make sure that all form of power supply is put OFF before you can do this

LF means "Low Flow". Remove the filters to see if the code goes away. If not, the pressure switch may be bad.
