    Default Kenmore Elite with Calypso - LF error code

    Our 18 month old calypso machine shuts off and displays the LF error code, which I understand means 'low fill'. I disconnected the water lines and checked the screens as suggested, but found no problems (screens were clean and the water flows fine). I did some more checking and found that the hot water seems to work fine, but no cold water even though you can hear something running.

    It appears at this point that the problem is with the water inlet valve. Am I missing anything else I should check?

    Is this something I can fix or is it better left to the pros?

    Thanks for any advice you can give me!

    Have you tryed just filling on either hot only or cold only to see what happens?

    Since its so new, I would recommend a Sears Tech. to come out if you can't get it going.

    Yeah, that how I isolated it to the cold water side of the inlet valve. It worked fine for the wash cycle on hot, but cut off with "LF" code displayed when it got the rinse stage (tried on warm and cold rinse).

    I'm calling Sears tech today to let them look at it. There's something to be said for old washers and old cars - they sure are a lot easier for us DIY'ers to tinker on.

    Thanks for your advice! This is a great forum.
