Question about Kenmore Elite Oasis 27052 Top Load Washer
You may have a clogged drain pump. Try blowing air thru the drain hose and see if you can get bubbles in the tub. This may dislodge it or if you can blow thru then you will need to remove the pump to get the clog out. The drain pump is on the rear right side. Get as must water out as you can with a cup or bucket...tilt the machine forward with a helper so the remaining water is at the front of the tub. A pair of pliers to remove the clamps and a bucket to catch extra water....you will also need a 7/16" nut driver or socket to take the three screws from the pump...one wiring harness plugs in under a flip up hood. Remove two clamps, the harness and screws. Remove the debris, reassemble, and try it again.

SOURCE: Kenmore Oasis HE won't drain
I had the exact same problem last night.
Here is what I did and it fixed it with NO PARTS or SERVICE CALL.
First, I took the drain hose and Blew through it with my mouth... I got air bubbles to come up in the wash bason, this told me the drain pump and hoses were not "Clogged"..
Next I took a shop vac and a 5 gallon bucket and used the vac to **** on the drain hose to start a siphon into the bucket...worked like a champ... I had it drained in less than 3 mins....
I Took the back cover off and then the drain pump off and took the 4-5 screws out of the mounting bracket and took the pump cover off.
What i found when I did this was that there was a VERY SMALL FLAT ROCK stuck between the impellor and the pump casing.
WIth a small screw driver I flicked out the rock and the impellor was free again... HOWEVER, When you do this, the impellor will turn half way and stop... half way and stop, half way and stop...etc.........IT WILL NOT SPIN FREELY like a top. When the motor is still attached to the pump, the armiture in the motor still gives reisitance to the impellor...This I PRESUME this to be normal..
I ended up putting it ALL back together except the back cover to test it...I turned it to a wash cycle and let it run for a few mins. Then i hit stop twice to cancel that wash request. Then i started a second wash cycle and the drain pump kicked right on to drain the water left in the basin from the first test wash..... So far she's purring like a kitten..... Fingers Crossed of course...

Try replacing the motor coupler between the motor and pump three small pieces about 18.00 dollars at sears parts store.

The pump is probably clogged with a coin. Pull off the hoses and check the pump. Make sure you put a pan under the hoses to catch the water

the top of the hose must be higher than the water level in the washer for proper operation
the drain house should be loose yet fit securely. do not seal the drain hose with tape the hoese needs and air gap

It appears your dual inlet water valve has failed in this instance.
For replacement parts - head on over to PartSelect.com or RepairClinic.com and enter in your full model number for a full parts listing.
I recommend both sites because ...
FixYa has no affiliation with either site - I have been using and recommending them for years - trouble free.
PartSelect has a great schematic database for locating the part on your unit and great "testimonials" for each part that often times includes HOW-TO information.
RepairClinic has pictures of each part they sell and also a great how-to and troubleshooting for basic repairs.
If your unit has never been serviced - there should still be an original service manual enclosed in plastic taped to the inside of the shell.
In the service manual are Error codes, maintenance procedures, and troubleshooting steps you can follow.
Anything too complicated or beyond your scope should be handled by a professional.
If you think you want to tackle the repair - and have gotten stuck on a step - reply to your question and I will be glad to help you out.
Thanks for using FixYa - a 4 THUMBS rating is appreciated for answering your FREE question

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.
