I had a similar problem twice and botht time the culprit was a loose bra wire that had found it's way down to the discharge area prior to the drain outlet. It was interfering with the check valve ball and causing the error message. I removed one of the hoses and reached in with a needle nose pliers tos snatch the loose wire. I hope this helps. Tom

Got a exsm680cl washer and it reads error drain not draining


Check the leveling of the machine, if not use a spirit level and use rubber sheets to keep it firm. If the drain hose is detached the water must freely flow out in this case. If not adjust the slope.
Also check the drain pump to open and work with good action. If not you need to remove and clean the filter and reset the pump

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.

What to do when there is an error saying Ld?


Hi, This error code(Ld) indicates that drain times are longer than expected.

1.Make sure the drain hose is not kinked or clogged. Straighten the hose for adequate water flow. Remove any blockage from the drain hose, drainpipe or utility sink. Use the U-shaped drain hose form on the drain hose, and secure the drain hose

2.The drainpipe (standpipe) height requirements are: 96" (244 cm) maximum and 39" (99 cm) minimum. Your washer will not be able to adequately pump the water out of the washer if the drainpipe (standpipe) exceeds 96" (244 cm). In this case, the water may flow back into the washer.

If Pause/Cancel does not work:
1. Unplug the washer or disconnect the power for one minute.
2. Plug in the washer or reconnect the power.
3. Re-select the cycle and press Start.

Thank You

Whirlpool cabrio giving error message LD-what is wrong


Long drain error can be caused by something plugging the drain hose or a kink. Tale it off th drain while it is pumping out and check for a good flow. If the hose is ok the pump may have an obstruction causing low flow and it will have to be cleaned out.

Problems with Whirlpool Calypso GVW9959K Top Load Washer - getting the LD error code when starting a load of wash. Other issues before the LD error are 1) seems like there's always alot of lint on the...


The "LD" error code has resulted in a service call for me once. I watched what the service man did and he took the panel off of the bottom of the machine (3 - 5/16" screws) and then the drain assemply is in the rear of the unit. You must drain with a low height pan such as a dish drain pan. Then he found an wire from an underwire bra in there. This was the problem. $150 later we were good to go. This has happened twice since and I was able to remove this myself. Just be careful and take your time.

I recommend checking the drain hose that connects to the house sewer system. Stuff tends to get stuck in the hose (lint, coins, etc.). Also, you should check the sump are if you haven't

Won't fillCalypso whirlpool washer model#GVW9959KQ1 LD on display


LD is long drain error, the machine does not fill because it is in fault mode, but error is on drain system.

If there is a drain problem, the parts that must be checked are drain hose, pressure switch, drain pump assembly, timer control.

Check if the drain hose at the back is kinked or blocked.

Test the pressure switch, blow into the small hose, and use a multimeter to check if switch has continuity.

Remove access panel and get to the drain pump hose to check for ablockage. You will need to disconnect the hose and collect the water.

Keep a container ready to collect water when you undo pump hose.

Ifall the rest is OK, test and eventually replace timer board.Problemwith water pump are far more commonly causing this problemsthenfaulty timer board.
