Hello. My name is ***** ***** I'll be helping you with your appliance question today. Please wait a few moments while I review your question.

So you are correct that LF means "long fill" the error will occur after trying to fill for 6 minutes so if it doesn't fill with enough water in 6 minutes it just shuts off after filling however much it could fill. You will need to pull the washer forward, turn the water off, and disconnect the water supply hoses from the back of the washer. Make sure the screens on the receptacles on the back of the washer are clean and if not flush them out with water and a Q-tip. If it still won't fill fast enough when you re-connect the hoses and apply water to the washer, you need to replace the water valve on the back of your washer because it's restricting the water flow.
