I would check the water inlet valve first. Unplug the machine, turn off the water, and remove the supply hoses. Check the small metal screens inside the openings on the valve. Make sure they are clear of rust or debris and check the solenoids using a multimeter or ohmmeter. Check for continuity. A lack of continuity will mean a bad solenoid and the inlet valve assy will need replaced. I will attach a photo for reference. Sorry for your trouble and I hope this helped. Best wishes.

What does LF stand for in the display window?


It means long fill and it flashes when the water fill time exceeds ten (10) minutes and the water valves are turned off. Press STOP/CANCEL to clear the display.

It is likely that the water inlet valves are not working. Check if there's water in the tub when the fault code flashes. The water inlet valves are not working if there's no water in the tub.

Code ce and lf


If there is any breakdown in communication between the machine controller and the motor
controller, “CE” flashes and the unit beeps once.
Some common causes of “CE” errors include:
• Conformal coating on serial communications pins between the machine controller
and motor controller. After disconnecting power to the unit, try scraping this coating
off the pins.
• Check the resistance values between the serial communications pins with the
connectors in place. Make sure the harness does not have a bad connection.
• Check the quick disconnect at the motor terminal. The drive motor must be hooked
up properly or a “CE” error will occur.
• Drive motor thermal protector has opened.
• Motor controller is not powered or fuse has opened. Replace motor controller.
Press STOP/CANCEL to clear the display
If the water fill time exceeds ten (10) minutes, the water valves are turned off and “LF” is
flashed.
Press STOP/CANCEL to clear the display.

LF code appears and washer does not spin out


This is where to find the manual. When you get to it, it tells you that LF is for long fill which means it is taking longer than ten minutes to fill with water so it shuts off and displays the error code.

Bottom Line : Check your water pressure.
