maytag bravos fault code

Maytag Bravos model MVWB750WQ giving me fault code "LF". The inlet hoses are fine, the inlet valve screens appear to clear, however I did have the drain hose way down in the drainpipe though. I've shortened that now and I'm still getting this code, what do I do? This is the first day of me owning this machine.

Thank you for your question and I understand your concern.

The "LF" fault code will display if the water level does not change for a period of time or if water is present but the control does not detect the water level changing. After you noticed the drain hose was stuffed way down the stand pipe and you pulled it up so that only 6 inches is stuck down the pipe, I assume you started the cycle over to see if will fill. If you can confirm good water flow (hot and cold) and the water level is changing and the "LF" fault code continues to display then I recommend calling and scheduling a service appointment if this is a new washer. If it's not a new washer I added two images below with some information that a service technician would use to diagnose the failure. It could have a pinched or restricted water lever pressure switch hose. I recommend checking the pressure switch hose first for any blockages or holes in the tubing before following the troubleshooting information I added in the images below.

NOTE: Disconnect the power cord before accessing and checking the connections and pressure switch hose.

If you do not feel confident repairing this problem yourself, then you can have it repaired at your home by a Sears technician. Here is a link for the website:

Understanding and diagnosing a washer problem with the error codes can be difficult without enough information. While you wait for the expert to review your model, you might take a look at the attachment on a previous expert post. I see it has the LF code and lists the checks to make. I attached the link below. Hope this information help.
