Ld code. It won't drain. Not the drain pump (I changed) and not clogged pipe.


Slow drain code. How high is the outlet pipe ABOVE the machine?

Ld error code


Hello & Welcome to FixYa

Ld means long drain and is displayed when it takes longer than 5 minutes to pump out the water to a point where the pressure switch resets. To solve this problem make sure that the drain filter pump assembly located inside the bottom front panel is clean and after cleaning if the error returns then the pressure switch needs to be tested and if bad then it needs replacement. Please get back to me if you have any other questions.

I do not have an owners manual for my Calypso washer. What does the LD sign mean?


Hi


Thanks for using FixYa. Error Ld means long drain and it flashes when the water level will not change even after the drain pump is on. To resolve this issue you’ll need to check the drain hose and the drain pump for any blockages. Also check if the pump is running fine and replace the part that has gone bad. Please do accept the solution if the issue is resolved or post a comment for further assistance.


Thanks

Ld flashes when the water level does not change after the drain
pump is on.
➔ Is the drain hose clogged?
➔ Is the drain hose height greater than 96′?
➔ Is the pump running?

''LD'' error


Hi there,
“LD” stands for “long drain,” meaning it took an excessively long time for water to drain out of the washer. Common causes for this are kinked drain hose or clothing, like panties or socks, caught in the pump suction hose. Why, I’ve even heard of bra wires coming loose and getting stuck in that hose, collecting all sorts of gookus and pinching off the flow of water to the pump. Can you imagine? Yea verily, as surely as the Sacred Suds doth eternally pass my lips, the “LD” error code springs forth from such anomalies.
