Sounds like you may have a timer problem. You might be able to pick one up at a appliance parts center. Most of the time, they can be pretty pricey item, if you can even get one for older models. Check EBAY as well, sometimes you can find hard to find parts for pretty cheap. Replacing the timer shouldnt be that hard. UNPLUG the unit, remove the console, which should be held on by screws, the remove and replace one wire at a time back to the timer. Use caution when removing the timer knob, you dont want to crack it. Most knobs remove by unscrewing to the left.

Yes, it is normal. There is water in the machine. One of the big draws for this style machine is that they use much less water than top load machines. If you stopped the cycle and opened the door, dug down in the clothes, you would find water. The machine fills a small amount of water (below the level of the door) and tumbles. As the water is absorbed by the clothing, the water level drops, so the machine adds more to maintain the water level. This is basically how the washer figures out how big your clothes load is and how much water that load needs. (Of course most sales persons at the big box stores and Sears have no idea how this works)
If you'd like, try running a cycle with no clothes to see how much water is in the machine. (It's not a lot) Now remember this: Because there is so much less water use than a top load machine, you must cut way way way back on the amount of soap and fabric softener used. Use no more than one tablespoon of HE (High Efficiency) soap (even less if it is 2x or 3x concentrate) and one teaspoon of fabric softener per load !!!!!
This should be a Fix-Ya for your question. Thanks.

L means "Lid or Door Lock" problem
r probably means 'release' I couldn't find it anywhere... so I'd guess that Lr means the machine did not detect that the Lid Lock released and cycle end (which means either the sensor is bad or the Lid Lock dosen't lock the Lid).
Either way, something with the Lid Lock system ais not right. Be glad it releases ;-)
