Check the pump impeller for debris. Coins, socks, draw strings - etc. - can get sucked in and jam or slow down the pump. To check this you have to go into the washer from beneath (unplugged, and manually drained or wet/dry vaccuumed out). Remove the clamps which hold the water tubes onto the pump motor, taking care not to spew water into the motor windings (they're open). May have to put a finger or probe into the plastic pump tubes to see if there is something in there. If no debris, could be a bad or failing pump. The new design is a single piece of pump/impeller, and you cannot disconnect the pieces without a special tool. The old style pump/impeller can be separated and is a metal serrated shaft into a plastic impeller hole that can strip out when debris jams the impeller.

Whirlpool Calypso error code


Hi


Thanks for using FixYa. Error Ld means long drain and it flashes when the water level will not change even after the drain pump is on. To resolve this issue you’ll need to check the drain hose and the drain pump for any blockages. Also check if the pump is running fine and replace the part that has gone bad. Please do rate the solution if the issue is resolved or post a comment for further assistance.


Thanks
Rylee

Whirlpool washer error code problem


LD is long drain associated with two problems the drain hose install and the pump. Debris in the pump and a drain hose inserted too far will cause most of these issues.
