Question about Kenmore Oasis HE 27062 Top Load Washer
Started a load of sheets then after 20 minutes or so the washer stops and starts flashing the (Ld) code and won't respond to anything. So I unplugged it and tryed again. A little water goes in but won't drain. Help!!
The ld code relates to a too long time for draining water from the wash tub. Check that the drain house is clear from kinked or clogged. Good luck !

"Ld" is a "Long Drain" error. This is an indication that you have a clog somewhere in the drainage system. The Oasis is notorious for this problem and it is usually in the drain valve between the wash basket and outer tub. In order to access this area you will need to follow these steps. 1. Unplug washer. 2. Lift washer top by inserting a putty knife along the front seam where the top meets the front casing. There are two retaining clips that you need to push in on while lifting at the same time. Lean the top back and support it against the wall. 3. Remove the wash tub balance ring. This is a donut shaped ring on top of the wash tub. There is a release tab along each side of the tub. The ring should lift out. This is filled with fluid, so it is normal to hear liquid splashing around inside it. 4. Remove the wash plate by first removing the cone from the center to reveal the bolts underneath. Once you remove the bolts you will be able to see through the wash basket into the drain line area in the back of the wash tub. Things like lint and under wire bra hoops get caught in this area and will not allow the ball valves to function correctly. You can fish out anything in this area by using a coat hanger and a flashlight. Remember how the wash plate goes back on. There is a keyed slot and it only goes back on one way. Another possibility is the drain pump itself. You will need to remove the drain hoses and check them for clogs. Also look at the impeller of the pump. You can see the pump and into the drain valve system by removing the panel off the back of the washer and look at the square plastic assembly on the bottom of the wash tub. This is the drain valve. You cannot open it and, if it is clogged, you must clear it out by either removing the connection from the drain pump and/or the procedure I mentioned above. Good luck to and I hope this may help.
