WTW6600SW2 Won't Drain

Washer works fine until it gets to the rinse/drain cycle. Eventually I get an Ld code. There is nothing clogging the drain hose. I can blow in the hose and easily get air to go all the way through. I've tried putting it on different cycles and it always stops at that point.

    We are having the same problem. washer will not drain, the LD shows and we have tried everything to correct, no hope. I have been very disappointed in this washer from day 1, we have had for 1 1/2 years, nothing but JUNK! tvk Henderson, Ky

    I have the same problem with the washer not draining.It gets to the drain cycle and just starts to hum.I have unplugged it to maybe reset the computer but when i plug it back up it does the same thing.I have tried changing different cycles and checking the drain tube itself.I had this washer for little over a year and just hate to have a repair come out and fix this if there's something simple that can be done..

We had the same problem. In our case a penny got down under the tub and into the pump. It caused a crack in the pump and it could not get the suction it needed to drain. A new pump solved the problem. Parts and labor to the tune of $195.

Just to let you all know, tonight my pump has broken for the 3rd time in as long as i have owned it. It has become an easy repair, less than 20 minutes, but i need a new pump yet again. I just fixed 4 months ago, it appears that thje problem is objects from pockets get down to drain, and then into the pump and the cheap *** plastic blows out. I will order 2 pumps tomorow to have one in reserve at all times and suggest the same for you all that have this problem. The amount i have spent on fixing this thing i could have had my laundry done and deliverd for the past year

I had this same issue. Everything worked fine right up until it was time to drain. It just made a rumbling noise and did nothing.

I removed the main drainage hose from the pump
(accessible after removing the back plate) and found a thin dress sock lodged in there. Removing it solved my problem.

Same thing happened to me just yesterday...

I removed the back end, tilted the washer forward and put books under the back legs...
i slowly drained the water from the tub, by loosening the elbow between the drain pump and black drain hose...

once the water was drained enough not to flow out when I removed the pump...I loosened the elbow and removed the pump, pulled it apart and took out a thin,thin piece of metal that had came from who knows what...replace the pump and works great...(for now)

LD means long drain ( time ) and is usually attributtable to either a bad water pump, clogged water pump or clogged hose from tub to pump or pump to drain.

I have the whirlpool Cabrio model WTW6600SB2. We keep getting the code LD when we use the normal rinse cycle. Also trying to do a clean with bleach cycle and t is supposed to go 60 mins and goes less...


The LD:
Ld (F32) Long Drain "Ld" flashes when water level drop ain't sensed by that fancy lectronic control.
Check these things out:
Drain pump fouled/clogged
Drain hose too high for propah pumpin.
Pressure hose tubing clogged/pinched came loose from that fancy control upstairs.

Kenmore Oasis Washer won't drain. "Ld" code during


Hi

Error code LD means long drain. This error appears when the washer takes more than 5 minutes to pump out the water till point where pressure switch resets. To resolve the issue you'll need to clean the drain hose, inspect if the drain hose is plugged. If the hose is fine, then remove the front kick panel and access the drain pump and filter, if you are unable to find the pump and filter remove the back panel as well and trace the drain hose to the bottom of the tub. There is a drain filter connected with the drain pump. It usually gets clogged, and needs to be cleaned every 6-8 months or so. The drain filter is a small white filter connected to drain pump with a hose. If it still doesn't work then you'll need to check the connections of the drain pump, check the electrical connections with a multimeter. Hope this helps... Please post back for more information.

Code SL or 5L?


It is Code SL which means Suds Lock. Either you have too much soap suds for it to drain properly or Your drain pump is clogged and not spinning properly. Try running it through a rinse and spin cycle and if you still get a code (SL or Ld) then you will probably need to replace your drain pump.

My whirlpool cabrio washer has ld code. have checked pump as well as inside the washer by taking basket out & nothing is plugged up. there was a small amount of water in drum when we removed basket....


Please see the following Whirlpool service manual for the Cabrio washer.

Ld flashes when the water level does not change after the drain pump is on.
• Is the drain hose or the drain pump clogged?
• Is the drain hose height greater than 96˝ ?
• Is the pump running? If not, see TEST #7.

My washer stops at the spin cycle. The LD code


“F21” (AKA SD) is a Long (SLOW) Drain error (LD). If the drain time exceeds 8 minutes this error code will be displayed. In addition, a “SUDS” error may also be displayed. This may be an indication of a drain pump problem and/or clog in the drain line. You will need to check the following:


1.First, attempt to unplug the washer for at LEAST 30 minutes to reset the Central Control Unit (CCU). Sometimes this is all that is required to correct momentary glitches with the unit. If the error code returns, proceed to step 2.
2.Check the drain hose to make sure it is not kinked or clogged.
3.Check the electrical connections to the pump and ensure the pump is running.
4.Remove the drain pump filter and check for foreign objects and/or debris.

Kenmore Oasis Ld code


LD code is long drain one of 2 things the drain pump is frozen and need to be replaced or there is somthing in the pump. Pull the washer a way from the wall a bit and get a bunch of towels. Lean the washer back against the wall towards the middle in the back you will see the pump take it apart and find the clog.
it can be assessed through the bottom.
