Question about Whirlpool Estate TAWS750PQ 27-Inch Washer
Washer was repaired after giving trouble with draining. Repairman says it was our fault because hose goes directly down to floor drain and not into a wash tub.
This sure sound strange. I would think it would drain better with hose going immediately down to floor drain but repairman says they aren't designed for that and that drain problems were our fault.
We have a very small home on a slab and the washer, dryer, furnace, and hot water heater are all in a row inside a closet in the kitchen. There is no room for a wash tub. The washer is the furthest from the drain(drain is in front of Hot water heater) the drain hose goes down to the floor and over to the floor drain(about 5 ft)
Could this be causing the Estate washer drain function to fail?
Yes drain should be at least 36 inches from floorif hose outlet falls below water height in tub water will siphon out faster than it runs in try installing 1 and quarter diameter pipe into floor drain and dropping end of hose into it

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.
