LF code LF Long Fill 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.

F error code "kenmore top load" washer oasis he3


Hi
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.

Kenmore elite oasis model 110.27032600 LF error. had an issue with the washer cycling through all the lights, would turn it self on etc. Had the repair man come out and he replaced the computer board....


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.

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

What do I need to do to fix the Lf code problem on my oasis washer?


Following is the LF troubleshooting response from the Whirlpool Cabrio
Service Manual. The Cabrio is the same as the Kenmore Oasis.

“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?
Are both water faucets turned on?
Is the drain hose sticking too far into the
standpipe (siphoning)?
Is the pressure transducer hose kinked or
dislodged?
Press PAUSE/CANCEL to clear display.


It takes a while to load but following is the manual in PDF format.

Cold h20 not going into tub, and LF light comes on when tub empty


Is the cold water valve on if so your water valve screen is probably clogged . disconnect your hoses from the machine and clean out the sediment. LF is long fill the rinse is usually cold water .that you do not have. good luck let me know what you find.

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
