Question about Kenmore 3.8 cu. ft. HE3 Front Load Washer
The F30 code on your washer definitely means dispenser motor error as you have stated in your post. Verify it by entering the diagnostic mode.
Close the door and select any one button (except “Stop/Cancel” and Control Lock (End of Cycle) and follow the steps below, using the same button:
Press/hold for 2-5 seconds, release for 2-5 seconds, press/hold for 2-5 seconds, release for 2-5 seconds, press/hold for 2-5 seconds.
Upon release, all yellow/green console LED lights will turn ON for 5 seconds. The last 4 error codes will be displayed, if there are any failure codes stored by the washer. Press the same key to advance to the next code.
The UI ,CCU and MCU SW version will be displayed after the error codes are shown. All green console LED lights will turn ON for 5 seconds then the washer begins the automatic diagnostic test. Press STOP button to cancel and exit out of service mode.

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.
