The error code indicates a slow drain time. Inspect the drain hose for an accumulation of debris, and flush it out. If this doesn't solve the problem, do the same thing with the drain pump assembly. If you need more help, please let me know.

The LF error means that the control sees an issue with the fill time, not the drain. Check that the screens in the water inlet valve are clear and the water is turned on. If it is actually filling okay (hot and cold), the pressure switch circuit may have issues. Let me know what you find with the fill hoses and wash fills.
