DURING NORMAL WASH THE LD LIGHT STARTED FLASHING. CHECKED DRAIN HOSE-NOT CLOGGED OR KINKED.

  • Anonymous Feb 27, 2009

    The washer just stops after being on for 2 minutes - then the Ld code comes up.

  • dspeice Mar 03, 2009

    There is also a code/combination when water is in the tub to test to see if the pump will expel the water. Can someone tell me what that code is? I had a lint buildup that stopped the pump from working and I watched the repairman tip the machine back and slowly drain the water into a pan. After the tub was empty, he then cleaned the lint from the pump. I need to do that again and I want to test the pump before I start.

I recently had the same problem. I actually took the two hoses off of the pump and found a penny in their. It was actually difficult, I couldn't figure out an easy way to get the water out first and had quite a mess. But now the washer works again.You'd have to get all the water out then flip it over, remove the bottom , theirs two clips holding together the pump mechanism, unlatch those, dissconnect the two hoses and look in and shake to see if something is jamming it.

Model 11026955690. Why does screen indicate LP?


I am not familiar with any error code referencing "LP". Could you be seeing "LF"?
Below are the error codes listed for your washer:
  • "LF" (Long Fill) Inlet hoses are kinked or clogged or water valve screens are not clear. (Solution: Straighten inlet hoses or clear screens of any foreign material.)
  • "LD" (Long Drain) Drain hose is kinked or clogged. (Solution: Straighten or unclog hose.)
  • "FF" (Fill Failure) Problem with water level sensing system. (Solution: Call for service.)
  • "OL" (Open Lid) Lid Is open during drain or spin. (Solution: Close lid.)
  • "PF" (Power Failure) Power to washer went off during cycle. (Solution: Press any pad to clear the display. Restart the washer from the beginning of the cycle.)

The machine stopped at 13 minutes to go then showed an LD code. What does this mean?


Is this a machine made by Kenmore?

An LD code n a Kenmore machine means Long Drain.
Check the water inlet hoses for kinks or clogs.
check the filter for coins or other junks.
Make sure the drain hose isn't blocked, restricted or kinked.

Hope this helps.. Good luck! :)

Flashing LD on panel and beeping cabrio top loader washing machine


Ld Long drain Clogged/slow drain/pump

"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.

Hope helps.

Ld signal won't drain


For the LD error please check for the following:


  • Check for kinked or clogged Drain Hose: Remove any obstructions in the drain hose / stand pipe / utility sink. Straighten the hose to remove any kinks. If the washer is unable to drain due to a kinked or restricted drain hose, the washer may not spin.
  • Check for Standpipe higher than 8 feet above the floor:The pump is not powerful enough to pump water to heights greater than 8ft. The water will remain in the basket.
  • Check for excessive suds in the washer: Drain pumps cannot drain suds out of the washer.
To clear the suds condition: Check the drain hose and make sure the hose is not plugged or kinked Press pause/cancel twice to clear the display Run the machine through a Rinse/Spin cycle using cold water, then a Normal cycle using cold water.

Note: Do NOT add any additional detergent. This will remove much of the remaining detergent held in the fabric. This step may have to be repeated to remove all the detergent.

During the wash cycle, the washer started beeping and I found a code "LD" on the dial. What is the problem


Here is what the manufacture says about LD -- my comments will follow

Long Drain
Ld flashes when the water level does not
change after the drain pump is on.
ô Is the drain hose or the drain pump clogged?
ô Is the drain hose height greater than 96"?
ô Is the pressure hose connection from the tub
to the machine/motor control pinched,
kinked, plugged or leaking air?

Phil's comments ---->

Almost always this code is due to a plugged drain pump or hose, it is especially common when washing a rug with a rubber backing that comes off or small articles like baby socks that get caught in the drain system of the machine. Depending on how adventurous you feel in taking this unit apart is your call, but due to the complexity of it I would recommend calling a service expert.

Just one guys opinion..

Kenmore Elite Top Loader reading LD code.


You may have an obstruction in your pump which causes it to drain slower than usual, or binds the impeller. Flow can still be pretty good even with this problem but the brain will sense a longer than normal drain time and flag the error. Try removing the water pump and look for underwires, paper clips or hairpins.

What does the Ld code mean on a calypso Kenmore Elite Washing Mashine


Hello there
LD means a long drain
it is taking longer than 8 minutes to drain out the tub
please check the following
First unplug the machine to prevent electrical shock·
Check wiring harness to ensure they are all connected and are not fried
·If needed remove the side panel and Check the hoses going to pump for clogs and all drain hoses and drainage system
· Check circuit board that controls the pump to see if any wires are burnt or have failed
once the faulty part or the clog has been cleared simply plug in the machine and press the cancel button and resume your normal washing operation
Hope this has been very helpful for you
Best regards Michael

Ld error code won`t drain.or do anything starts for 10 sec and stops


Owner manual - Code Ld -says the drain hose is kinked or clogged.

Check that the hose didn't get kinked when pushed back to the wall. It's a common problem. The problem is NOT the wall drain as water would be coming out onto the floor if that was the issue.

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...
