Kenmore Oasis has LF code on and won't reset

My Kenmore Oasis seems to keep coming up with the code LF while I am trying to rinse & spin the clothes so they can finally get transferred. What can I do to resolve this problem? I have unplugged my washerfor 10 minutes and it still comes up with the same code eventually.

Ugh!!! Please help!

    I have the same problem. I am begining to hate this washer!

    We have had the same problem off and on for about a year with the Kenmore Elite Oasis, beginning two days after we bought it. About 10% of the loads result in the LF. Then we have to start all over again. This has to be an engineering problem which is the responsibility of Sears. I won't buy any other Sears product until they fix this.

    I have had this washer for a while. This is the first time this LF code is consistent. I hope it is fixable!

    i had the same problem before i got the new computer board for the dreaded F1 code. what i use to do (assuming it happens on the last cycle (rinse & spin) is hit the stop button twice (so it drains the water out), then power it back on and use the rinse & spin button, but i turn off the 2nd rinse button off. this usually lets the machine complete the cycle.

    I'm so disgusted with this washing machine. I have already replaced the circuit board once for the dreaded F1 code, NOW I'm having a consistant LF code. I'm ready to haul it back to Sear and leave it on their doorstep....I will never again purchase from Sears, they don't back up their products unless you purchase an expensive service warranty.

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.

My Kenmore Elite Oasis washer unbalanced signal seems to be very sensitive. Only after several tries of readjusting the load to get it really even that the washer will spin without stopping. I made sure...


If the washer throws an UL error code with out any clothes in the washer then the issue must be concerned with the mechanical alignment inside the machine or a bad CCU.

The most common problem which can cause this is some sort of mechanical hinderance which does not allow the basket to move freely.

The suspension system which holds the basket in its place might be faulty and causing the unbalancing. In this model i think there are plastic ring at the bottom of the basket . Even if they are worn out or moved out of position it may cause the UL error code you are facing

F51 error


Hello, the F51 code is a motor rotor position sensor failure. It's best to call in the warranty service as there is a bunch of tests that need to be run to determine if it's the sensor or control board. If the tech wasn't any help, contact the store for a replacement.

Thanks

The dreaded LF code


HI, there is not a defect notice or recall on this particular unit but, we get a lot of complaints about this specific issue concerning the LF code on a frequent basis. this issue dose concern the inlet valve.

The replacement will work better than the factory installed piece. This is basically a blind defect.(defective factory part).

Getting code LF won't wash stays on same amount of time


Try unplugging the washer for 10 min. This will reboot the circuit board. Sometime you can get small power surges from the electric company and these will confuse the electronics in the curcuit board. Unplugging and resetting the system wil sometimes work.

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.

LF Code


Why not just clean the screens to increase the fill pressure and spend not 1 cent on the repair.

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
