SOURCE: Clothes washer won't drain - digital display shows LD

looking at the tech sheet for this, it appears to be a standard whirlpool top load but with electronic controls, correct? normalling with this type a lid switch is the issue but the electronics would have a different code for this, LD is Long Drain for this model. suspect a transmission but this should help you troubleshoot. go to www.servicematters.com and click technical reference - tech library - tech sheets, enter model minus 110.prefix. this will show tech sheet with diagnostics. this book can also be found inside your console.

SOURCE: What does it mean when LD shows in the display on my washer?

“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.
To check the drain pump, click on the following link for step-by-step instructions

If the above procedures do not correct the problem, it is recommended by the manufacturer to replace the drain pump.

SOURCE: kenmore elite top loaded washer has problem that indicates Lid

First of all, unplug your washer. You will need to remove the console in order to get to the lid switch. The washer may have release tabs under the console at each front corner. Simply slide a putty knife straight in from the front at each corner and push in while lifting up. You should feel the release tabs push in and the console will pop up. If not equipped with this type of console, you may have a console that has removable end caps. They can be removed by gently prying up on the top of them from the rear on each side. You may have to use a small screwdriver for this. The caps should pop right off. Once removed, you will need to loosen a screw under each cap. Once you have the console loosened, carefully lift it up and lay it back over the rear panel of the washer in its resting position. Be careful not to damage the small plastic hinges that hold it in place. Now you will need to perform the following steps:

1. Under the console you will find the lid switch connector. Unplug the switch from the connector.

2. There will be two brass colored clips. You will need to remove these to remove the machine casing. Place a flat blade screwdriver straight down into the opening on top of the washer and into the groove of the clip. Push the screwdriver away from you while holding into the groove and the clip will release.

3. Open the lid of the washer and place your hand under the front rim of the opening (DO NOT grab the wash tub). Now pull the case from the frame by lifting from the back first.

You do not have to remove it all the way from the frame, just enough to gain access to the switch. All there is to the switch is a couple of screws holding it in and a ground wire. It's a pretty easy repair job. Some models will have the switch located on the right-hand side of the lid rim opening, while other models will have the switch located on the left-hand side near the lid hinge.

Once you've completed your switch installation, make sure you get the case back on the frame correctly by following these steps:

1. While looking down through the lid opening, place the front lip of the machine case UNDER the washer frame and start leaning it back onto the frame. There are four small cleats that must fit into four slots on the case or the washer will vibrate. Make sure the frame is seated properly, lean forward from the front of the washer, grasp both sides of the rear panel and pull towards the case. The rear panel should be seated and flush with the casing before inserting the retaining clips.

2. Insert the brass-colored clips into the slot on the washer rear panel first, and then push straight down into the opening on the top of the washer with some force. If you have the case seated correctly, the clips will snap back in.

3. Make sure you plug the connector from the console back into the lid switch receptacle BEFORE you reassemble the console. This is easy to forget.

My whirlpool cabrio is beeping and displaying ld, what does that mean


Hi from retired Englishman in SW France,

I do not have a complete list of Whirlpool error codes but 'ld' probably stands for Lid (Error) .There is likely to be a problem with either the lid/door solenoid/lock or the 'lid/door closed' sensor requiring a service engineer's attention I suggest ;-0(
Alternatively it could stand for LoaD error- but you are likely to have refered to problems of unbalanced loads in your posting I suspect!

If this has assisted and/or clarified the situation for you please consider a 4 thumbs up on our rating.
Thanks and good luck!

Error FL


FL= Flood Condition
FL flashes if any overfill condition occurs. This condition occurs when excessive water in the tub causes the overfill switch to trip. The control must realize that the trip was due to an overfill condition instead of a suds lock condition in order for FL to be displayed.

With an overfill condition, the beeper repeats a warning every 10 seconds with no time out. The pump is cycled in drain mode for 30 seconds on 30 seconds off until the overfill switch resets or power is discontinued to the unit.

Note: Press STOP/CANCEL to clear display on all error codes

Causes of flood condition. Inlet valves stuck on, sediment in water level pressure tube, water pressure tubing vibrated off the switch. Bad switch (highly unlikely).

Other codes:
PF power failure
Er control lost settings during PF
LF Long fill Clogged inlet screens
CE Com error between motor and control
Ld Long drain Clogged/slow drain/pump
CA/CI Motor amping up
ob off balance load
Sr relay failure no control to motor
LS Lid switch no signal from lid switch, error occurs if the motor and control disagree as to the position of the lid switch. Usually means corosion is buit up in the switch and the motor knows the lid is shut but the control does not. Code appears when start button is pressed.
open lid= flashing display time If the lid is opened time remaining flashes in display. Close lid and press start to continue.
SL Suds Lock Current draw on motor is sensed by motor control and a suds lock is declared. The control trys 3 times to fix this by doing a mini cycle, SL is displayed if the unit was unable to correct the problem. This problem is caused by:
Bad pump
Extra heavy load
Excessive detergent
or Excessive suds/wrong stuff

I have the LD 5 flashing. there seems to be a problem with the electronics - switch?


The control should flash this error code if it cannot detect the lid switch opening and closing properly.
This error code may also be used if there is a disagreement between the motor and machine controllers on the state of the lid switch.

The control should not allow the unit to run in this condition. This code will also appear if the user presses the START key while the lid is open.

Open the lid or press STOP/CANCEL to clear the display

ss13679,
I believe your code is actually 'LS'. This codes shows up when the controller cannot detect the lid switch opening and closing properly. This error code may also be used if there is a diagreement between the motor and machine controllers on the state of the lid switch. The control should not allow the unit to run in this condition. This code will also appear if you press the start key while the lid is open. Open the lid or press STOP/CANCEL to clear the display.
