Error codes can be very confusing and the explanation varies from one model to another. While you are waiting on an expert to answer your question, I found a great link in the Manage My Life website. I also was searching your model number and couldn't find anything on your model number you have provided. I have attached the link below. I also suggest you verify your model number and attach complete model number to this thread for a better answer from the experts! Have a nice day!

Thank you for submitting a question to Manage My Life.

The nF error indicates a long fill. When the water fill continues for more than 16 minutes or there is no change of water level for 3 minutes. Check the following:

Check the water valve wiring harness.

Check the water supply valve for clogging with foreign material and whether water is supplied properly.

Check for reversed fill hoses.

Check water temperature, if sensed as higher than 50 degrees C (122 Fahrenheit) in the Wool or Lingerie cycle it will create this error.

Check the relays, if they operate correctly replace the Main PCB.

If you see nF1, it means the hoses (hot and cold) are reversed.

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;
