Did you receive an "LF"  or "F8E1" Error Code?

The "LF" (long fill) code means the washer is taking too long to fill or the washer is filling and draining.

The F8E1 Error code also may indicate there is some problem with the water supply going to the washer. Please make sure that both inlet hoses are connected and both hot and cold water supplies are turned on.
