Hello, so I have been researching this problem for a while.  Model # YWFW9151YW00 only 5 years old.  LF is for "long fill" and the unit stalls in this error now every time.  I did all the usual.  Checked and cleaned the hoses (not burst safe ones), screens, lots of water pressure as I ran them into a sink.  The pressure tube inside is fine.  Drain pump seems ok and is draining fine.  No leaks.

At this point I am thinking it is perhaps the sensors that allow the water into the unit.  But I am not 100% sure.  I guess it could be the display panel.  Do I order new sensors and hope for the best?  

Thanks for any ideas.

The LF error code does point to either the pressure switch or inlet valve. The inlet valves can both be tested with a multimeter. Your model has two valves a single and a dual. If those check out fine then its more than likely the pressure switch, part number W10239066, you can get it from here https://www.appliancezone.com/.

Well, I think I found the problem after doing the tests on the valves and the pressure switch.  When I first inspected the pressure hose it looked fine.  But on second look it has rubbed through a tiny pinhole in it down where you can't see so well.  So I am going to seal it up and see if that works.  I tried to upload a pic but won't work.  But you get the idea.  I will let you know my results.

Sealing the pinhole leak in the pressure sensor tube fixed the problem.  Thanks for the help!
