“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.

Keep getting error code Ld what does this mean


Ld (F32) Long Drain "Ld" flashes when water level drop ain't sensed by the control.
Check these things out:
Drain pump fouled/clogged
Drain hose too high for proper pumping.
Pressure hose tubing clogged/pinched came loose from that fancy control upstairs.

Post your model number I might have a service manual and a better answer for you.

I have an error code that says "LD", what does


The LD stands for Long Drain and it flashes when the water level does not change after the drain pump is on. Check to see if the drain hose or drain pump is clogged or is the drain hose situated too high.

Whirpool cabrio error ld


Hi

Error ld means Long drain. Ld flashes if it takes longer than 5 minutes to pump out water to a point where the operating pressure switch resets. Press STOP/CANCEL to clear the display.

If it doesn't clear the error then check whether your drain is kinked or clogged with lint and debris. If not then there is definetly some problem with your drain filter and/or drain pump.
