Re: Washer Won't Fill
Ok at first you got no water, by simply reversing the hoses now you get to much water?
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 was trying to find how the hoses are supposed to be, im thinkin the should kinda fall in the rigth position as to which side shoudlbe which. if you set to spinn only does the water now drain out ?if not then the hoses are definelty reversed now, which would put us back to the original issue

LF = 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. Is water supply connected and turned on? Are hose screens plugged? Is water entering the tub? If so check pressure hose connection to machine/motor control.
Check that the drain hose and water inlet hose are properly installed,
and undo any kinks or clear any clogs if the display error reads "LF"
indicating that the load is taking too long to fill, or "Ld" indicating
that the washer is taking to long to drain. If the code reads "HC," the
hot water hose is installed in the spot for the cold water hose and vice
Also, check this information from Whirlpool DataBase: Display shows LF
Hope helps (remember to rate and comment this answer).
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. 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? Blow that tubing out and re-secure; retry with water OUT of tub so the pressure can properly build in that tubing. Bravos codes and service manual HERE
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.

happens when your installer throws away the drain hose u-bend, and
stuffs the hose as far as it will go down the drain pipe. When this
happens the end of the hose can get pushed under water, which causes
the washer to siphon out the wash water when it fills. This results in
an LF "Long Fill" error. The solution is to get your installer to come back and install the washer properly.
LF means long fill. So the washer is taking too long to fill. Make sure your hoses are connected to the right spot on the water valve. (hot on hot and cold on cold). Also check that the taps are fully open. If this is good remove the hoses from the washer water valve and put the end into the washer tub. Turn on the hoses and check for good flow. They're good? Check the mesh filter in each inlet of the water valve. All clean? Replace your water valve. Good luck!
In reference to the LF error code on your Kenmore Washer
When your washer displays error LF , it is due to low water pressure, slow or continuous fill.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 isn't supposed to be filling. o Contact the water company to verify the pressure being supplied to the house * Error Codes- LF for long fill or FH for no water detected. o A plumber may need to be consulted if the pressure is found to be too low.

The LF code indicates "Long Fill" which means it is taking too long for the water to fill the washer (times out). From the owner's manual:
"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?
Press STOP to clear display.
Here's a suggestion I found that worked for me:
Check your drain hose to see it it's stuffed too far down the standpipe. Another poster had this problem and it gave her LF errors.
If the drain hose hangs down too far it can siphon water out of the washer, and then the washer thinks it's taking too long too fill.
There's supposed to be a U-shaped plastic bracket that sets the length of the drain hose where it goes into the standpipe. Your installer may have tossed it.
