Kenmore Oasis HE 27082 Displays "LD" error falsely

I bought my Kenmore Oasis HE 27082 in March of 2007. Approximately 4 months after I got the washer I started having an error on the washer that said "LD". The manual and repairman said that "LD" means Long Drain, and that it probably means my drain pipe is clogged or not working. Two different Sears repairmen have come to try and fix my washer, one replaced the control board, and the other replaced the motor. Both times it didn't fix the problem, and both times they couldn't really seem to diagnose the problem correctly at all.

I've diagnosed this problem pretty specifically and know exactly when it will malfunciton. Right before the washer should Start Spinning the clothes, it will just sit there with the motor running for a few minutes. Then the "LD" error will come up. Recently after this "LD" error comes up even when I push stop twice and restart a new cycle, it will not start a cycle at all. No water will come out and the motor is just running for a few minutes and then the "LD" error will come upo again. I've also tried unplugging the washer for a minute and sometimes the washer is able to start a cycle again. However, even though the the washer seems to work again, it will eventually stop in the exact same place with the "LD" error.

I've checked the drain pipe thoroughly and have concluded that it is working perfectly. The 2nd repairman though my washer was "oversudzing" but I have cut down and use extremely small amounts of HE detergent. I've seen in some of these posts that sometimes the washer sends a false signal to the to the control board and will not initiate the spin cycle. Is there a way I can manually get the washer to just do the spin cycle? Is there anyway I can fix this problem myself? Your help would be greatly appreciated, thank you in advance for your time. Same problem. If I leave the machine set for 20-30 minutes off, I can go back and just run the spin, and it will finish the load. Every once in awhile it magically does the whole cycle. The repairman told me to change out the pump. I did it, but the machine still doesn't work. Do these machines have some sort of level switch that could be bad? I have been searching on SearsPartsDirect.com, and have found a pressure switch hose, but no level switch. I haven't figured out if/how to change the pressure switch

  • The lid switch may be defective. If it is, the washing machine doesn't spin. The switch is inside the washing machine main housing near the door frame. Often you have to raise or open the top or front of the washing machine to get to the switch. If it's defective, you need to replace it.


  • Good luck..

    Hello,

    Since that you let repairman do twice and didn't fixed the problem, I think your washer have still warranty from the vendor. and they repair it free.

    Please verify the panel board of the machine maybe got grounded in the wiring or got wet. How ever you can do that in your own you should consult the repairman on that matter. however the two repairman did not resolve, so its better to bring the washer's to the vendor. im sure they can fix the issue or you will be enlightened by their valuable suggestion and solution.

    may this help

    It appears your timer has failed in this instance.

    For replacement parts - head on over to PartSelect.com or RepairClinic.com and enter in your full model number for a full parts listing.
    I recommend both sites because ...


    FixYa has no affiliation with either site - I have been using and recommending them for years - trouble free.

    PartSelect has a great schematic database for locating the part on your unit and great "testimonials" for each part that often times includes HOW-TO information.
    RepairClinic has pictures of each part they sell and also a great how-to and troubleshooting for basic repairs.


    If your unit has never been serviced - there should still be an original service manual enclosed in plastic taped to the inside of the shell.
    In the service manual are Error codes, maintenance procedures, and troubleshooting steps you can follow.


    Anything too complicated or beyond your scope should be handled by a professional.

    If you think you want to tackle the repair - and have gotten stuck on a step - reply to your question and I will be glad to help you out.

    Washer displaying "LD" and constantly beeps


    Sometimes the LD on certain machines can be decieving, It's possible that the error is pointing to a lid lock issue. I'm a sears tech but have logged of my work computer for the night so I can't look it up right now. I just happened to stumble on this forum. In all appliances there is a tech sheet hid somewhere. This will give you more information. On this model, if you press and hold anykey for 3-4 seconds, let it up for 3-4 second and do that 3 times it will show more codes and go into a test cycle. Don't worry you cant screw anything up in the controller. If you or anybody needs help on appliances you can drop me a line. I have been a Sears tech for 15 years and have seen a lot of stuff and learning more all the time. scottowa at hot mail

    Oasis washer displays code Ld and wont fully drain


    LD means long drain. Check to see if there is something clogging your drain hose. If not remove the drain pump from the bottom of the washer tub and clean it out. Also clean the recirculating pump. That should fix it. if not replace the drain pump.

    It most likely means long drain, the drain line could be clogged or kinked. You could also have something jamming the drain pump or a bad drain pump.
