Re: calipso washer will not drain
What you are seeing is a blockage inside the tub. when the water cant get to the drain hose it will try to **** the water in it and that will cause the hose to colapse you need to remove the hose and see what is in it causing the no drain condition. i would guess a sock or something small like that. might even be a coin but something is blocking the water from getting into the drain pump.

You might have something caught in the drain pump impeller. I'm assuming it's a front load washer. Most of them have a little access panel on the front of the machine down towards the bottom. Open it up and you'll see a little black hose. Take the little black hose out and get a bucket and remove the plug from the hose and drain your water into the bucket. Then, open up the cleanout by removing the somewhat large cap you'll see next to where the little black hose comes out from the machine. Once you have the cleanout opened up, take a wet-vac and suck out everything you can inside the cleanout area. Then, use a flashlight and see if you can find anything stuck in the impeller area for the drain pump. If not, then you'll need to disassemble your wash machine and change out the drain pump. It's a pretty involved procedure, but youtube has a few videos on how to do it.
ND stands for No Drain.
It means that either your drain is plugged, the piping inside your washer to the drain pump is plugged, your pump is damaged, your control panel is damaged or a combination of the above.
If you can hear your drain pump operating, you should check for blocked piping. If you have water in the washer, unhook your washer hose from the back of the washer and lower down to the floor to see if water drains from your washer. If little water runs out there is a good chance that the hoses inside your washer are plugged with something. If water runs out freely, then there is a problem with your pump that will not allow it to pump water up to your drain hookup.
You do not need to replace the whole drain pump. The black drain hose is attached to the drain pump and secured with a hose clamp. If the clamp is not further down the drain hose, inside the unit on the base or has not fallen underneath the washer it can be replaced with a hose clamp from a hardware store. You will need the diameter of the hose to get the correct size. Rather than using a standard screwdriver to tighten the clamp a 1/4" or 5/16" nut driver or socket works much better. Make sure you unplug the appliance before working on it and have towels handy in case of water spills
Hello, A leading cause of that is the drain pump has seazed up.When it has seazed up the motor still trys to turn it but is having a real rough time,so it trys even hard to the point the motor overheats due to drawing excessive amprage where it ultimatly trips the circuit breaker.By getting to the back of washer if able and removing the small panel on right side and removing the clips that hold drain hose up to top of cabinet,the drain hose could be pulled through that small panel and holding it a low point the water in washer will drain by gravity, use a couple of buckets to catch water. After water is drained reinstall drain hose to where it normally goes,the washer could be tipped up so the control panel is resting on the wall, the drain pump will be on the right side,you could turn the pulley by hand and see if it turns easily,if any resistiiance or if the pulley doesn't turn at all,the pump& possible based on the condition of it the belt will need to be replaced.
I hope my answer will help you to resolve your washer trouble, Gene
this usually indicates a blockage or restrictio in the drain pump.you can use a wet dry shop vac and attach it to the end of the drain hose.then you nee to remove the hoses from the drain pump and loock for anything blocking the pump or restricting the hoses.if the unit has a access door you need to check this as well make sure to check the hose that comes down from the bottom of the tub.
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.
The OB indicates and out of balance condition has been detected by the motor control. One thing about the OB error is that the lid must be opened to clear the error and allow the washer to advance to the next part of the cycle. If the lid is not opened to adjust the clothes then the OB error will happen again.
If the OB error was cleared and the OB occurs with an empty load then the motor control has failed.
The drain pump must work. The image below shows how to run a diagnostic test to check the drain pump. Follow the instructions in the image below and check the drain pump operation. If the pump runs and the water does not drain then the sump is clogged. If the pump hums but does not run then the pump needs to be replaced.
Hello there: It spins, but doesn't pumpIf your washer spins but doesn't pump the water
out, the drain line is probably clogged. In many washers, a small sock
or other piece of clothing can get between the clothes tub and the outer
tub that holds the water. If the clothing gets between the tubs, it may
then get into the drain hose that's attached to the pump--or even into
the pump itself. If it's in the pump, you need to remove the hoses from
the pump and pull the item out.To remove the sock from the outer tub port, open
the washer's main access panel and remove the large-diameter rubber hose
that connects the pump to the bottom of the outer tub. Then, using
needle-nose pliers, try to grab and remove the clothing through the
port. Sometimes you can't remove the stuck clothing from
below. Then you have to remove the agitator, top of the outer drum
shield, and inner clothes tub. This isn't easy to do--and you may need
special tools--so you might be happier getting a qualified appliance
repair technician to do the job.If the drain line isn't plugged, the problem may
be with your pump. Even if the pump appears to be turning, the internal
impeller may be broken. If so, you need to replace the pump.
the most commom problem is a foreign object blocking the drain pump.in order to remove the water you need to use a wet dry shop vac and attach it to the end of the drain hose once the water has been removed.you have to remove the two hoses conected to the drain pump and check for any obstructions.this should solve your problem.if there is no obstruction then the drain pump may be bad.besure to check the wiring.good luck with your washer let me know how things work out for you.
