My calypso top load he washer, which was purchased July of 2002 is having it's first problem. I consider myself blessed after reading forums on this machine. It is stuck on the rinse cycle. Try's to do it's thing but keeps starting and stopping. Not getting any error codes, just stuck on 18 minutes left (example, time could be 38 min etc..) . I am using ERA HE detergent. After letting the machine dry out and running it with no load, no soap in express, it ran thru it's normal cycle three consecutive times. After another night of letting it dry out and running the machine in normal mode it got stuck at 38 min. seems to have trouble going thru it's cycles. May take forever for the timer to lapse even one minute. It won't drain or advance through the cycle and all I hear is a humming noise I would like some advise on what might be the problem so I can see if I can fix it myself. Any ideas?

“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.

My kenmore elite calypso washer


"Ld" indicates Long Drain: Ld flashes when the water level does not change after the drain pump is on.
depends on the following factors:
1-> the drain pipe could be longer than 8 feet
2-> the drain hose could clogged or kinked
3-> the pressure hose connection from the tub to the machine motor control could be pinched or plugged?
4-> and finally the pump might not be running well.

If you need any sort of help with the disassembling of machine tell me the exact model number and i can provide with some internal diagrams.Good luck with the machine.Please do rate my solution, also do post comments in case of further doubts.

Kenmore elite washer problem


LD stands for long drain, you probably have a bad pump or the pump is clogged with lint etc.

Kenmore (Calypso) Elite Washing machine shows LD and LF!


LD means long drain and according to the manual your drain hose could be clogged or kinked.
LF means long fill. check your water hoses and the screens to make sure they are not clogged. Had that happen to me once and i had to change the hoses. several months later same thing happened and it was the motor pump part # 8054968, this you can fix yourself.

Ld and ob error codes


hello.........
“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.
