I had the hot water supply turned off so we would only use cold water. The machine automatically wants to use hot water unless you set it to use cold water only. When we ran the machine without setting it to cold we got the LF code. I turned the hot water on and the code went away.

The electrical conections to the fill solenoids on the machines are terrible. Thw wires are twisted onto the tabs of tghe solenoids and covered with a plastic piece. to fix tyour problem take off the plastic pieces and solder the wires to the tabs on the solenoids

Check your hot and cold water supply hoses for residue buildup that restricts the flow of water.....there is a small metal screen filter that clogs up ....most likely the cause if your pipes are old and the inside walls are shedding deposits into the water line.

What is the LF code on my kenmore elite oasis


The LF code stands for long fill.. I would suspect a water inlet solenoid valve as the most likely suspect. It may be the hot or the cold valve. If the valve does not completely open the time to fill your machine takes too long. You can't replace just the one valve because the part contains all of the water inlet valves. That of course jacks up the cost but what can you do.

Our washers keep flashing LF after the wash cyle and stops workin, not spining very fast either.

What do I need to do to fix the Lf code problem on my oasis washer?


Following is the LF troubleshooting response from the Whirlpool Cabrio
Service Manual. The Cabrio is the same as the Kenmore Oasis.

“LF” (Washer is taking too long to fill)
Check the following:
Are the water inlet hoses kinked or clogged?
Are the water inlet valve screens clear?
Are both water faucets turned on?
Is the drain hose sticking too far into the
standpipe (siphoning)?
Is the pressure transducer hose kinked or
dislodged?
Press PAUSE/CANCEL to clear display.


It takes a while to load but following is the manual in PDF format.

Washer LF code sears kenmore 80 series


It means that your machine is taking longer then a specified time (~10 Mins) to fill!! Check your water pressure, the water valves, the little filters in the hose, where it screws into the water and/or machine. Good Luck

The dreaded LF code


HI, there is not a defect notice or recall on this particular unit but, we get a lot of complaints about this specific issue concerning the LF code on a frequent basis. this issue dose concern the inlet valve.

The replacement will work better than the factory installed piece. This is basically a blind defect.(defective factory part).

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.

Kenmore Oasis has LF code on and won't reset


The LF code indicates "Long Fill" which means it is taking too long for the water to fill the washer (times out). From the owner's manual:

"LF" (Washer is taking too long to fill)
Check the following:
Are the water inlet hoses kinked or clogged?
Are the water inlet valve screens clear?
Press STOP to clear display.

Here's a suggestion I found that worked for me:

Check your drain hose to see it it's stuffed too far down the standpipe. Another poster had this problem and it gave her LF errors. If the drain hose hangs down too far it can siphon water out of the washer, and then the washer thinks it's taking too long too fill. There's supposed to be a U-shaped plastic bracket that sets the length of the drain hose where it goes into the standpipe. Your installer may have tossed it.

Kenmore Oasis HE 2708..LF error code


LF = Long Fill
If the water is on and screens are clean there is a test you can do to check the log valve. There should be a repair manual inside the front panel of the machine. If yo use a screw driver in the front to open the top you should find it on the inside of the front panel. Good Luck
