Looks like the issue is with the water pump. You will need to replace this.

LD flashes when the water level does not change after the drain pump is on. Check the following:

Is it oversudsed?
Is the drain pump clogged?
Is the drain hose kinked or clogged?
Is the drain hose installed properly?
Is the drain hose height greater than 96"?
Press PAUSE/CANCEL to clear display.
Tape the washer lid closed. Carefully lay the washer on its front panel. To remove the drain pump loosen the clamps and pull the inlet and outlet drain hoses off the pump.Note that there is a tab on the outlet connector that fits into a slot in the hose.Remove the three 5/16˝ hex-head screws from the drain pump and remove the pump from the tub. Hope this may help you; Regards, VOTIT

Step 1. Turn machine off, leave plugged in
Step 2. Hold any button, (other than power, cancel or start) for 3 secs, release, hold 3 secs, release, hold 3 secs, release.
Step 3. 88 will flash and press the same button again within 5 secs or the machine will go into automatic test mode.
Step 4. Once you press the button a 2 digit console code will appear for 3 secs.
Step 5. If done correctly the display will read 00 and the add a garment indicator will flash indicating you are in manual mode. In manual mode the lid will not lock, so you can open the lid to verify the water from the valves.
Step 6. Fresh water valve test- Turn selector to Whites, push start, and select temp. Water should come out in the middle. Press start to stop the water.
Step 7. Detergent valve test- Turn selector to Heavy Duty, push start, and select temp. Water should go into the detergent fill cup. Press start to stop the water.

F32 is Pressure Switch Failure - Select 'cancel' twice to clear error code and disconnect power, if it does not work inspect pump, see if it is obstructed, and replace pressure switch.

HI,

Unplug your washer and open up behind, you will see a thin tube coming down from the control panel (pressure switch to be precise) to the waste area below. Disconnect this carefully from the top, blow into it, air should pass through it should not be clogged; refit carefully. Before refitting, fit a similar tube to the pressure switch & blow - you should hear a click; if not there should be a problem with your pressure switch. Anyway refit your old tube & try the machine.

    Dont forget to refit the main exit hose at the position you found it.

F32 codewhirlpool duet ht frontload washer F 32 code Whirlpool ht frontload washer displays f 32 code


F32 is a pressure switch failure. It controls the water level in the washer. The switch is a round plastic part mounted on the right panel towards the back right corner. Remove the switch by disconnecting the wire harness and the rubber tube connected to it and gently rotate it 90 degrees CCW and you should be able to pull it out easily. Some suggest that blowing on the tube will clean out anything that could be clogging it as a quick fix. If you suspect the switch you test it by checking two things; Blow on the inlet that was connected to the rubber tube you should hear a couple of clicks. The second test is to check if the switch works electrically. If the switch is bad you will need to replace it.

Won't fillCalypso whirlpool washer model#GVW9959KQ1 LD on display


LD is long drain error, the machine does not fill because it is in fault mode, but error is on drain system.

If there is a drain problem, the parts that must be checked are drain hose, pressure switch, drain pump assembly, timer control.

Check if the drain hose at the back is kinked or blocked.

Test the pressure switch, blow into the small hose, and use a multimeter to check if switch has continuity.

Remove access panel and get to the drain pump hose to check for ablockage. You will need to disconnect the hose and collect the water.

Keep a container ready to collect water when you undo pump hose.

Ifall the rest is OK, test and eventually replace timer board.Problemwith water pump are far more commonly causing this problemsthenfaulty timer board.

Calypso washer - LD Code - clothes still wet


harborstuff,
The code on your machine stands for 'Long Drain'. Ld flashes if it takes longer than 5 minutes to pump out water to a point where the operating pressure switch resets. I would bet that the bath mats left a bunch of stuff stuck in the recirculation pump hose, or pump itself, and the water cannot be drained fast enough. Check the intake and exit hoses of the recirc pump. It's easiest to get to the pump through the front panel of the machine(click here). Looks like this: click here. Hope this helps.
(Definitely get under there and check to make sure the pump hoses are not clogged. At $129 it's an expensive fix for a $10 bath mat that clogged up the hose with fuzz. 'know what I'm sayin'' :o) )

-samson39

BTW, I have the maintenance manual & have experience at replacing the recirc. pump, control board, motor board, touchpad, & lid switch so far.

My washer has a f1 code will not spin or wash


OK, your unit is quite unique. this unit has a integrated control design that houses the main and motor control board. both are combined on the same board. this error code represents a failed Machine and motor control board. this single control board works as the main controller and, as the motor controller as well. This board has failed in your unit and, you will need to replace this board asap if possible.
