This error only shows in diagnostic mode, with power off choose any buttons except stop and power, press in intervals 5 seconds on and 5 seconds off until 88 appears and all light light up. If the user panel is faulted F 2 will flash in the display, press the same button you used to start diagnostics to jump to the next error code and once through 88 will flash and diagnostics will start. Sometimes once F2 flashes and the machine has not been repaired it will stick at that mode.

DO NOT attempt to turn this washer upside down! The wash tub is suspended by suspension springs and it will dislodge the wash tub from its mounts. The washer also weighs about 200 lbs. Not a bright suggestion.
In addition, if this is an OASIS, no special tools are required to remove the wash tub. It usually involves removing the center cap from the wash plate and loosen the bolt underneath with a socket. You will need to remove the wash tub ring in order to get the wash tub out, however. This is the pastic ring around the top of the wash tub. It simply snaps in place and can be removed by popping the retaining taps free with a screwdriver.
If you hear a rattling noise, I would recommend you check the drain pump first as "titelines" suggested. It is common for items to get lodged in the piump impeller and make noise. Keep in mind...there are TWO pumps on an Oasis. One is a recirc pump. Check them both. If anything has been left in the pump for any significant period of time, it can damage them.
You will need to access them both with the rear panel removed and the wash tilted up so you can access the mounting bolts and screws from underneath. I would STRONGLY recommend you drain all residual water from the wash tub prior to disconnecting any drain hoses. If you own a wet/dry shop vac, this can be accomplished by removing the drain hose from the standpipe and pulling a vacuum on it. This will minimize any mess you may have to clean up later.
If your model number differs from the one you posted this question under, please post back with your correct information. I hope this helps you.

See the following Whirlpool / Kenmore service manual for the Whirlpool Cabrio washer. The Kenmore Oasis is basically the same.
Also see the Sears Parts site for your washer.
Enter the full (###.########) model number and you should see descriptions of the major components and parts lists.

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.
o 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.
o 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.
o 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
o Make sure all the hose are straight and able to flow water
* Are the screen inside the water valve plugged
o Inlet valve should be free of debris and rust.
o Turn off water and remove the inlet hoses from washer.
o Remove any accumulated film or particles.
o Assure rubber washers are in the end of each inlet hose.
o 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
