Q:

Auto washer

A:

Thank you for your question and I understand your concern.

The error code "LF" flashes when the water level does not change for a period of time OR water is present but control does not detect the water level changing. The "LF" stands for Long Fill.
 
  1. Is water supply connected and turned on?
  2.  Are hose screens plugged?
  3. Is water siphoning out of the drain hose?
  4. Check for proper drain hose installation.
  5. Is the pressure hose connection from the tub to the machine/motor control pinched, kinked, plugged or leaking air?
If the water is entering too slow or not at all, I recommend disconnecting the power cord and turning the water supply off. 
  
Disconnect the hot and cold water fill hoses from the back of the washer. Place the ends of the two hoses into the tub and turn both hot and cold water valves on and confirm the water flow. Also, the two fittings that the hot and cold fill hoses were threaded on you will find a filter screen inside the port. If the screens are restricted with debris, it will restrict the water flow into the washer. You can pull/pry the screens out for cleaning but be sure to reinstall them or it could cause the valve to stick open. 
 
I added an image below that may be helpful in checking for pinched air hose between the control and the side of the tub. 
 
 I hope this is helpful. If I may be of further assistance as more details become available, please reply to this post.

Q:

adjusting auto dry

A:

Thank you for your question.

I have checked the service manual for your dryer. I am sorry but on this dryer you can change the auto dry settings. The dryers today are designed to stop before the clothes are completely dry. This reduces the setting of wrinkles and conserves energy. There are a few tips that will help if the dryer is not getting the clothes as dry as it did before.

  • If you are drying mixed loads the dryer might turn off to early. What happens is, lighter items will trigger the control to advance while the heaver items are still wet. I recommend only using the auto cycle on like item loads.
  • If the moisture bars inside of the dryer get a coating from the fabric softener it will cause the dryer to advance quicker. I recommend cleaning the sensor bars with rubbing alcohol on a cotton ball.
  • check the vent to the outside. If it is partly plugged it will affect the drying of the clothes.
  • Select "more dry" in the dryness level before starting the load.

Please let me know if you need further assistance on the dryer.

Thank you for using Manage my life.

Mark T.
