Why does my Kenmore Elite washer (Model # 11044832201) flash an HF code on all cycles?

Why does my Kenmore Elite washer (Model # 11044832201) flash an HF code on all cycles except rinse/spin and drain/spin. The washer does not flash any number codes just the HF. Unplugging the washer does not have any effect on the code. The HF code will return when any wash cycle is tried again. Have cleaned the drain filter, but what is puzzling is why it fails only on wash cycles but drains on the other two cycles.

    On Kenmore & Whirlpool Front loaders, the HF means the water fill was NOT detected. The water may be flowing to fill the machine but if the pressure sensor does not "see" water pressure, that fault will occur after so many seconds. Check the supply water filters and mixing valve for proper function.
