    we are having the same problem. took the bottom off and removed the hoses and the base of the pump to clean out any debri. found a dime and a penny amongst the other sludge that had built up and put the stuff back together. running a cycle on my carport now to see if it will work. from the comments of others, this seems to be a common problem.

LD - Long Drain - as when the pump is not running (jammed or clogged with debris, socks, or draw strings!) or when it has failed. Make sure, if you are having someone replace the pump motor, that they upgrade it with the redesigned motor that has the impeller and motor in a single part which cannot be separated. The original design was 2 parts and was a metal motor shaft into a plastic impeller socket that would strip when the impeller got jammed. There are several companies which sell the new design and for a small extra fee you can get a lifetime warranty on the pump assembly. Google for it.

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) )

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

My Kenmore Calypso Elite HD Top Loading washer quit cycling through a complete wash today. I've drained all the water from the interior hoses and found them clean and uncloged. The washer belt looks good...

Looks like this: click here. the hoses to the pump have spring clips holding them on. Be careful taking the hoses off, have something to catch the water from the hoses.

Hope this helps.

Machine shows LD even when water pump was replaced


dccvan,
OK, now that you have a new pump, look at the back ouf the unit. You will have to take off the back cover. On the back of the tub you can see where the 'check balls' are for draining & recirculation. Here's a picture: click here. It might be a little difficult to see through the plastic, but check to see if there is anything stuck inside there near the check balls. If so, you have to take the pump hoses off at the tub connections. You can use mechanical finger grabbers to get stuff out. Check this picture also: click here. If you take the hoses off, check them for debris inside. Check your drain hose to the house drain also, could be something in that hose too. Flex shaft mechanical fingers look like this: click here. you can get them at just about any autoparts store.

Hope this helps,

Washer stops in middle of cycle,


Junk it! Cut you losses now. I had a Calypso for 6 years and went through 3 pumps, various circuit boards , a drive motor ,etc..... not to mention the down time of not having a washer in a 4 person household. We bought a Whirlpool Duet HT 9200. Clean , fresh laundry not all balled up anymore. Junk it. You'll thank me.
