Robert Baca The error code LF stands for Long Fill. This could be due to a blockage in your water supply. Remove the hoses from the back of your washer and take a look at the flow by opening the individual faucets and run water into a bucket. If that looks about normal, check the back of the water inlet valves. There are commonly some screens that act as filters. If those are clogged, you can replace the screens by simply pulling them out with a pair of needle nose players. If none of that shows the desired effect, consider replacing the water inlet valves since they maybe partially blocked. Let us know what you find out.

Checking Water Inlet Filters
The water to your machine must be shut off before you check the water inlet valves and filters. Go ahead and turn off the water to the washer by turning the hot and cold taps off.
Now, you can disconnect the water inlet hoses. Look at where they are connected to your washing machine and disconnect one. There will be a rubber gasket at the top of the valve. Remove that and clean it. Then, you will see a screen.
You should be able to remove the screen to clean them. Wash under cool, running tap water. The grime may be hardened, which may require you to scrape it off. Be careful so you don’t damage the filter.
