Re: tub in washer empties as fast as the water runs into...
Ck height of drain needs to be at least 30-36 inches from floor also be sure drain hose is only 6-8 inches into standpipe be sure there is a small air gap between drain hose and standpipe.. hose needs to fit loosely into standpipe or siphoning may occur

It depends on the cause of the water pressure issue. I'd first check your incoming water to the washer. Turn off the inlet shut-off valves and disconnect the hoses. Check the hose filters and the inlet valve filters. Remove any debris. Next put a large bucket under the shut-off valves and open them fully for a minute. Check how much water flows into the bucket. If very little water was in your bucket, you'll need to check where the restriction is in your water lines. (The water pressure needs to be sufficient to fill the washer in about 8 minutes. Depending on your home, you may need a professional to check the water at your water connection to the city or at your well pump.) Empty the bucket. Replace your inlet hoses at the valve side and repeat the test. If you are getting low water flow with the hoses in place, replace the hoses. Some hoses have a "anti-flood" feature which restricts the hose if there is a problem. (I've seen the hot water flow rate to the washer significantly decrease due to the hose blocking the flow. The cold water hose was replaced at the same time to avoid it failing in a short time.)
Next check that the drain hose isn't below the level of the water in the washer. This can cause siphoning and empties the washer as fast as it fills.
If the water pressure is still low after testing these items, the problem could be the inlet valves on the washer or the air pressure at sensor that detects the water flow. On some washers, you may be able to remove the debris in the air tube. However, if there is a pinhole, that part will need to be replaced.
LF means a long fill was detected. This means that the washer sensor did not sense enough water coming into the unit in the first 8 minutes after starting the wash cycle.
There are several things that you can check. First, make sure that the incoming water pressure is good. You can try replacing the intake hoses and checking the filters on both sides (inside the washer and at the shut-off valves). (When you take the hoses off the shut-off valves, put a bucket under the outlets and check the flow rate.) Some intake hoses will seal themselves if they detect a leak. This will significantly reduce the water flow. If the filters are clogged, you get a similar restricted flow.
Next, check that the end of the drain hose is not positioned below the fill level of the washer. This will cause the water to be suctioned out of the tub as fast as it fills.
If the water is flowing well, the intake valves or the water pressure sensor (which detects the change in the weight of the tub) could be bad or have a wiring harness problem.
The first thing to do is to empty the washer by allowing the water to flow out of the drain hose by gravity...If it won't flow you have a blockage and you'll have to check the pump filter which is accessed via the small door at floor level (or behind the kick plate) Unscrew the pump cover and check the filter..Water can and will flow out if you haven't emptied the washer. There may be a small hose which next to pump cover which allows controlled draining....Good luck....Nomess
