Maytag bravos washer stops cycle "f" code flashes
This isnt really a solution because Im having the same problem. The repair man that came said that is buildup of soap in the water line. I use my own powder soap, not h/e, and its not desolving and getting built up in the lines. Im not sure what to do to get it to stop doing this. He suggested cutting back on the amount of soap and running hot water through the lines which I have done for the last couple of days but I still have this problem.

Holes in woman's clothing
The same thing happens to me. I think it actually comes from wearing a belt. I believe somehow the metal portion pinches and cuts the fabric either when you are sitting down or you lean up against something.

What does LF mean on my washer?
It is possible your line or tube that goes through the fabric softener dispenser is
partially obstructed, giving the LF error which means it is taking too
long to fill. I would try cleaning out all of the dispenser lines, and
if that does not fix things then you may need to replace the inlet
valve assembly which may not be working correctly. or you may want to make sure that your hoses are not all tangled up and are clear of any debris in the screens of the hoses

OL code displayed in my
Hi from retired Englishman in SW France,
Sorry but I do not know your particular machine BUT I would suggest as a first step that you clean the drain motor lint tray/filter. So many 'faults' are caused by blocked filters. The motor is unable to drain all of the water in the allotted time.
If you are unsure where the filter is, it is normally behind the front lower (kick) panel and held in by a round cover/knob.
REMOVE POWER AND ENSURE YOU HAVE A WATER RECEPTACLE/RAGS TO SOAK UP THE WATER WHICH IS BOUND TO POUR OUT!
It's surprising what people have found in theirs! It is always worthwhile checking it on a regular basis.
Now- whilst the filter is removed it is normally possible to see the drain motor and ensure it is not jammed by a foreign object such as a needle or a toothpick. It should be able to be turned by hand/finger- the power IS OFF!
At this point it is also possible to test if the motor works. No clothes or water in the machine, select a spin cycle and put the power back on. You should be able to see the motor turning at some point, possibly straight away. If it doesn't work then the motor is malfunctioning!
Hope the filter is the problem and good luck!
