Question about Kenmore Elite 45986 Front Load Washer
We took the filter off, it was completely clogged. We cleaned it all out, now still getting the code which according to the manual it's the pump. Do we need a new pump? It seems to be pumping water o.k.
These small drain pumps are easily damaged by debris and foreign matter clogging the impeller. If anything has been left in the pump for any significant period of time, the impeller or drive motor may have been damaged. The error code is caused when the Central Control Unit (CCU) fails to detect a completed drain within a prescribed time interval (usually 6 to 8 minutes, depending on model). The pump may still run, but may not be pumping enough volume to drain within that prescribed time (I hope this makes sense). In a nut shell, if cleaning the pump and drain lines does not correct the problem, the manufacturer recommends replacing the drain pump. Replacements can be ordered on line at searspartsdirect.com, repairclinic.com, or appliancepartspros.com. All three sites offer competitive pricing, so check with all three for the best price.
I hope this answers your question. If you need assistance in replacing the pump, or have further questions, please let me know.

The LD fault code indicates that the washer took longer than 5 minutes to pump out the water and reset the water level pressure switch. You should be able to press STOP/CANCEL to clear the display.
Check you drain hose for kinks or clogs. You could have a clog or failure in the drain pump that is causing this problem
