Question about Kenmore 24032\24036 Top Load Washer
When it starts to rinse the screen flashes lf
If the water fill time exceeds ten minutes, the water valves are turned off and LF is flashed.
Press STOP/CANCEL to clear the display
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

We have also encountered the problem and pressing cancel and restarting the wash cycle has always resolved the problem. Now that I read your post/response I've given more thought and believe the problem is a reflection of our water system. We are on a private well and when the charcoal filter is nearing replacement (evidenced by slow water flow) together with lower pump pressure the right condition is introduced throw an "LF" error code. While I haven't proved/tested this, I believe if I were to change out the filter, the problem would be eliminated.
Most residential home neither have whole house filters or private wells and rely on the water supplier for proper pressure. The water district however seldom offer consistent pressures and a drop in the pressure could certainly reduce water flow, triggering the "LF" code.

LF means Long Fill, this error 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 whether water supply is connected and turned on. Make sure the hose is not blocked and hose screen is clear. If so make sure pressure hose connection to machine/motor control is fine. Also check the continuity of water inlet valve, use a multimeter to check the continuity. Hope this helps... Please post back if you need more information.

The LF error means Long Fill.
When you start a cycle the water should come into the dispensers. If you have a good flow through the dispenser the valves will be okay.
I recommend checking the inlet water screens on the back of the washer. The inlet screens are located on the water valve. To access the screens you will turn the water off and remove the inlet hoses. The screens prevent debris from entering the valve and sometimes over time mineral deposits build up on the screens. This can block the water or slow the water fills down to a trickle. You can pull the screens out and clean them if necessary. Flush the inlets thoroughly with water when replacing the screens. If debris gets past the screens, it can cause the valves to stick open and an overflow of water can result.
While you have the fill hoses disconnected, place the ends of the hoses in a bucket and briefly turn on the faucets to check for proper water pressure and flow from both hoses.
A common reason for an L F (long fill) error on this washer is the drain hose being stuck to far down the drain standpipe.
If the drain hose is to far down the standpipe then a siphon can occur which causes the washer to fill and drain at the same time. This will cause a long fill error.
