LF Error code: LF stands for long fill and occurs when the water level does not change for a period of time after the valves are turned on.
All washers are designed to operate with a water supply pressure of 20-100 PSI. When the pressure drops below 20 PSI the washer can have the following problems:

  • Slow Fill- low water pressure reduces the speed at which water flows into the machine.
    • Verify the pressure at all other water sources in the house (i.e. sinks, showers, etc..). If you find other places where the pressure is low, the problem is not with the machine but with the water supply.
  • Continuous Fill- The valve may not fully seat under 20 PSI which would allow for a constant flow even when the machine is not supposed to be filling.
    • Contact the water company to verify the pressure being supplied to the house.
  • dispenser- Needs a minimum amount of pressure to function. May dispense constantly, at the wrong time, or not at all.
    • A plumber may need to be consulted if the pressure is found to be too low.
Things you can check :
  • Are the Hot and Cold water faucets turned on
  • Are the water hoses kinked
    • Make sure all the hose are straight and able to flow water
  • Are the screen inside the water valve plugged
    • Inlet valve should be free of debris and rust.
    • Turn off water and remove the inlet hoses from washer.
    • Remove any accumulated film or particles.
    • Assure rubber washers are in the end of each inlet hose.
    • Reinstall hoses, turn on water and check for leaks.
Error codes can be caused by a Power Surge or other electrical anomaly,attempt to return the washer to operation by following the Hard Reset procedure below.
  1. Unplug or turn the circuit breaker off for 30 seconds.
  2. Reconnect the unit to the power source by turning the breaker back on or plugging the unit back into the wall outlet.
  3. Press the Pause/Cancel/Stop button twice to clear the display.
  4. Start a short cycle to check the operation of the machine by selecting a cycle and pressing and holding the start button until the machine starts

What does LF mean on the washer? When I start my load it pops up as LF and stops washing. What do I need to do or what is wrong?


LF (F30)
LF flashes when the control don't sense any water coming in like it is supposed to do. Things to check:
Hoses connected; water turned wide open.
Hose screens plugged.themobilian_1134.jpg
Is water siphoning out due to having the drain hose too low? (30 inches above the floor)
Pressure hose from tub to control loose, pinched, hole, Sediment in tub? themobilian_1135.jpgthemobilian_1136.jpgBlow that tubing out and re-secure; retry with water OUT of tub so the pressure can properly build in that tubing. themobilian_1137.jpg

Flashing FL


Hi

If you have error code FL it means flood condition i.e. FL flashes if any overfill condition occurs. This condition occurs when excessive water in the tub causes the overfill switch to trip. The control must realize that the trip was due to an overfill condition instead of a suds lack condition in order for FL to be displayed. With an overfill condition, the beeper repeats a warning every 10 seconds with no time-out. The pump is cycled in drain mode for 30 seconds on, 30 seconds off until the overfill switch resets or power is discontinued to the unit. Press STOP/CANCEL to clear the display.

If its LF which means long fill i.e. when the water fill time exceeds ten minutes, the water valves are turned off and LF is flashed. Press STOP/CANCEL to clear the display.

Please do rate the solution and revert for further assistance.

Thanks

2003 dodge ram 3500 4x4. low beam RF works no LF; high beam RF out, LF works. turn signals onlr RR works no LF,RR,RF. quickflash on dashboard


first thing to do, go with the replacement of the light bulbs, high beam and low beam are two different fillaments on the ligh bulb, as for the rear also replace the bulbs, when your flasher rellay flashes faster, it means that there is less drop of current in the circuit, like only one light bulb working.

LF means long fill or that is what the repair tech told me when I first got my set and was having major issues with it. What he said was causing it during initial fill up the drain hose if inserted into the drain to far will create a siphon. It is a simple fix just barely put your drain tube into the wall and you should be set.
