Maytag 2000 Error LF what does this mean


The LF error code indicates a long fill condition.
What you need to do is check the filter screens where the hoses connect to the unit. Remove the hoses at the back of the unit. The screens are hust inside of the connections. Make sure they are free from any debris.

My washer stopped and shows LF. What do I do?


For Maytag top-loading washers, the LF code indicates that there is a problem with the incoming water to the washer. First check if the valves are fully open at the inlets (hot and cold). Make sure that the hoses aren't kinked.

Next turn off the incoming water valves and take off the hoses from the back of the washer. Clean the filters that are on the washer inlets. Reconnect the hoses and check for leaks. (Some hoses will seal themselves if they detect a leak; you may want to use new hoses when you reattach the hoses.)

Make sure that the incoming water pressure is above the minimum 10 psi. (I live in a rural area. When the water company has a problem with the pump, broken pipe or power outage, low water pressure can be a problem. We wait until the problem is fixed before using the washer.)

Next check if the drain hose has been put too deep into the stand pipe. If the outlet of the hose is below the water level in the washer, the water will be siphoned directly into the drain. The flow will trigger the LF error.

If none of the above solve the problem, then either the valves or the incoming water pressure sensor on the washer has a problem. You will need to replace the appropriate parts.

I hope this helps.

What does LF mean on the washer? When I start my load it pops up as LF and stops washing. What do I need to do or what is wrong?


LF (F30)
LF flashes when the control don't sense any water coming in like it is supposed to do. Things to check:
Hoses connected; water turned wide open.
Hose screens plugged.themobilian_1134.jpg
Is water siphoning out due to having the drain hose too low? (30 inches above the floor)
Pressure hose from tub to control loose, pinched, hole, Sediment in tub? themobilian_1135.jpgthemobilian_1136.jpgBlow that tubing out and re-secure; retry with water OUT of tub so the pressure can properly build in that tubing. themobilian_1137.jpg

Washer starts then gets LF code


rwer
Hello and sorry to read about you LF issue

LF means long fill. Turn off the water and remove the hoses from the back of the machine, inspect the screens inside the washer water valve for debris. Stick the hoses into the washer tub and turn the water on, verify you have good water flow. If all of this checks ok then you either have a bad water valve or the control is sending power to the secondary diverter valve but not the primary hot/cold valve or vise versa.

I tried to help you.Please help me and rate/vote my response

Thanks and good luck

LF code


Hi,

Thanks for using FixYa. Error LF means long fill, which flashes when the water level won't change for a period of time after the valves are turned on or the water has disengaged the basket but control does not detect a water level change. TO resolve this issue check if the water supply is turned on and the hose screens are not plugged or kinked. If the water is not entering the machine then check the water valve, also check the pressure hose connection to the machine/motor control. Please rate the solution if the issue is resolved or post a comment for further assistance.

Thanks

I have the error code LF and can not get it off. I have taken all the wet clothes out and I still can not get it to reset???


LF error indicates Long Fill

Remove the hose coming from the wall and clean the screen on the machine side.

If it is clean - and you have good flow from the wall - then you either have a bad water valve or the control is sending power to the secondary diverter valve but not the primary hot/cold valve or vise verse.

If cleaning screens doesn't work then most likely needs inlet valve. i have seen one of these with LF code caused by the machine control howeve.

If you have the flood proof hoses - change them for regular ones... they have some sort of built in safety mechanism where if they "think" the flow is too much they will shut themselves off.

What does LF mean on my washer?


Hello there:
It is possible your line or tube that goes through the fabric softener dispenser is partially obstructed, giving the LF error which means it is taking too long to fill. I would try cleaning out all of the dispenser lines, and if that does not fix things then you may need to replace the inlet valve assembly which may not be working correctly. or you may want to make sure that your hoses are not all tangled up and are clear of any debris in the screens of the hoses

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

"LF" is a "LONG FILL" error. This will occur if water fill time exceeds 10 minutes. I don't know why this would pop up at the end of a cycle. Normally this is associated with filling at the beginning of a cycle. There is also an "FL" error, which is an "OVERFILL" error. This is normally associated with a problem with either the control board or wiring harness. This normally occurs when there is an open circuit between pins 1 and 3 on P17 of the control board. That one is a little more involved and usually requires replacement of the control board, wiring harness, or both. If you, indeed, have an "LF" error I would check your water source coming in. Check your fill hoses for kinks or obstructions, first. Then, turn the water supply off and remove the hoses from the back of the machine. Place one end of each hose inside the wash tub and turn both water supply lines back on to make sure you have good water flow coming through the hoses. Replace the hoses if they show signs of bulging, cracks, leaking and/or restricted water flow. Turn water back off and check the fill valve inlet ports on the back of the washer for accumulations of sediments in the screens. It doesn't take much to restrict water flow. You can clean the screens with a cotton swab. If you check everything and still have problems with the error code popping up, I would replace the fill valve. It's an easier fix and less expensive than a control board. If you decide to replace the valve, it is located under the console on your washer, I believe. It's fairly simple with a couple of screws to remove on the console and a couple of connectors and hoses on the valve to remove. Make sure you unplug the machine and turn off the water supply before attempting. I hope you find this advice helpful. Let me know if this works for you.
