Question about Kenmore Oasis HE 27082 Top Load Washer
Why not just clean the screens to increase the fill pressure and spend not 1 cent on the repair.

OK, I think I have this one figured out! There are relays on the control board that operate the solenoid valves. Apparently the cold water one gets the most use, so it dies first. They are using cheap relays to
switch inductive loads without any surge suppression to prevent contact arcing. Eventually, the contacts become so burned they can't reliably turn on the water valves.
The relays are Panasonic JQ1AP-B-12V, Digi-Key sells them for
$5.05 as part # 255-2937. I am going to add surge suppressors
across the relay contacts to try to save the other relays. I should have the parts in a couple days and will report how well this works. If you are handy with a soldering iron, you can save yourself about
$270 bucks with this fix. If not used to doing tricky soldering, I can't recommend you try this. The cold water relay is K7.

"LF" is a Long Fill error. If the fill time exceeds roughly 10 minutes, the fill valves are shut down and the error code is generated. If the error does not clear, or keeps reoccurring, it is recommended that you doublecheck to make sure your water taps are on all the way and check the hoses for kinks or clogs. If everything checks okay, check the screens on the fill valve for sediment build up. You may need to replace the valve. Post back with your complete model number (located around the tub opening) and I can give you better advice on how to access or obtain replace parts. I hope this helps you.
