It sounds like you may have something stuck in the pump...try and locate the pump(normaly at the bottom of machine)and unscrew the cover...be aware that the machine may still have water in it....once you unscrew the cover,have a look and a feel inside...there may be a coin or other object stoppint the pump from turning...remove any foreighn object...replace the screw on cover and try to drain the water again....this should solve your problem.

Won't fillCalypso whirlpool washer model#GVW9959KQ1 LD on display


LD is long drain error, the machine does not fill because it is in fault mode, but error is on drain system.

If there is a drain problem, the parts that must be checked are drain hose, pressure switch, drain pump assembly, timer control.

Check if the drain hose at the back is kinked or blocked.

Test the pressure switch, blow into the small hose, and use a multimeter to check if switch has continuity.

Remove access panel and get to the drain pump hose to check for ablockage. You will need to disconnect the hose and collect the water.

Keep a container ready to collect water when you undo pump hose.

Ifall the rest is OK, test and eventually replace timer board.Problemwith water pump are far more commonly causing this problemsthenfaulty timer board.

Calypso washer - LD Code - clothes still wet


harborstuff,
The code on your machine stands for 'Long Drain'. Ld flashes if it takes longer than 5 minutes to pump out water to a point where the operating pressure switch resets. I would bet that the bath mats left a bunch of stuff stuck in the recirculation pump hose, or pump itself, and the water cannot be drained fast enough. Check the intake and exit hoses of the recirc pump. It's easiest to get to the pump through the front panel of the machine(click here). Looks like this: click here. Hope this helps.
(Definitely get under there and check to make sure the pump hoses are not clogged. At $129 it's an expensive fix for a $10 bath mat that clogged up the hose with fuzz. 'know what I'm sayin'' :o) )

-samson39

BTW, I have the maintenance manual & have experience at replacing the recirc. pump, control board, motor board, touchpad, & lid switch so far.

Display on my Whirlpool Calypso washer shows LD I checked but there is no water coming out of the hose. checked line ok.


"LD" flashes implies the drain hose is kinked or clogged. Check the line as well as the line it feeds into for a clog and make sure it is free to drain then if OK, Press STOP/CANCEL to clear the display. Hope this helps...
