Question about Kenmore 22422 Top Load Washer

1 Answer

MY 25062500 Kenmore Elite spins and clicks but won't drain.

We put a couple of wigs in a pillow case and one escaped. The cycle ended with an"ld"error which,at the time, I thought meant "lid", silly me. I pulled the wigs out and started another load hanging the wigs up to drip dry. Lots of suds and "ld" "ob" errors later, I've drained all the water out and have flushed it several times, but still no drain. I checked the drain hose which doesn't seem to be clogged. Any ideas?

I followed the advice from one of your postings about the Calypso pump, leaning the washer back and removing the bottom access panel. (Be sure to disconnect AC power first!!!). Heeding the warning about "lots of water" -maybe 10-15 gallons!!!-I removed the back access panel and loosened the drain hose, then I put a pie plate beneath it to pool the H2O as it rushed out, cranked up the shop vac undid the hose and let it rip. I filled my shop vac 3 times!). Then I tipped the washer back removed the the pump which is on the right, opened it up and cleaned out the impeller. It works like a champ now. Thank you for your help!!

I have an kenmore elite oasis he and the washer has a code - LD. If i try to stop and start it, it just hums.


Hello,

The LD means Long drain time...that error code coupled with the hum i believe something is stuck in the drain pump preventing it from turning and that is why its humming

Kenmore Elite Top Loader reading LD code.


You may have an obstruction in your pump which causes it to drain slower than usual, or binds the impeller. Flow can still be pretty good even with this problem but the brain will sense a longer than normal drain time and flag the error. Try removing the water pump and look for underwires, paper clips or hairpins.

My kenmore elite washing machine stop during the spinning cycle and show up 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.

I have a kenmore elite top load calypso wash motion at the end of wash cycle it does not spin and flashes a LD on display I have to turn off and just do a spin cycle to to spin dry.


LD (long drain). possible blockage at pump..check to see if pump spline is stripped. also if the drain hose is plumbed in airtight then this may be slowing the draining process.

Kenmore series 70 washer


On kenmore, which is made by whirlpool, there is a couple of coils attached to a bracket this is called a wig-wag.
they are located underneath the tub. when these coils engage they move a couple of bars, thus selecting agitate, spin, ect. It sounds like one of the coils is not working. Check them for power and continuity, and then go from there.
