    well, i actually fixed (i guess you can call it that) the problem before i read this.  although i now grudgeingly use He detergent, i didn't always.  when i didn't i had this problem often.  i was washing 1, lone, very dirty towel & even though it was He detergent, i used enough for a large load.  (it was a very dirty towel!)  i wondered if sudsing was the problem, so i poured 3 mop buckets of water & some vinegar (kills suds), & then it worked.  i did this process several hours earlier 7 or 8 times, but without vinegar, & only 1 bucket of water each time.  i don't know if time, the vinegar, or the extra bit of water fixed it, but now it works - BUT after it worked i then got the "lf"(too long to fill) code.  i only had to stop & hit start again to remedy this.  still working fine.  is my washer's computer nutty?  thanks so much for your help, jen

Remove the console, there  are 3 screws on the back of the console that hold it on. You will see a plastic hose goin to the machine control board. Remove it from the board and see if you can blow through it. If you can, you probably need a control board. If not then something has gotten into it. You should be able to blow through it easily. This is the pressure hose that tells the board when the machine has water in it. If it gets clogged with pressure in it, the control thinks it still has water in it.  Post back to let me know what you find.

    It is possible that it is nutty,LOL.

    I think you had some dried soap scum in the pressure dome of the tub.(that is where the hose goes to I was telling you about) This will cause the control to be slow to sense when the tub is full and slow to sense when the water is drained. The vinegar does help this. There are some washing machine cleaners that work really well that are citric acid based. If you keep having this problem try some of them. Sometimes lint will get in it and cause the same problem, but with your detergent problem, I figure it was soap. Also, run it through a clean cycle with hot water to help get rid of any undissolved detergent. Post back if you need anymore help.

Kenmore elite oasis top load error code Ld

Hello & Welcome to FixYa

Ld means long drain and is displayed when it takes longer than 5 minutes to pump out the water to a point where the pressure switch resets. To solve this problem make sure that the drain filter pump assembly located inside the bottom front panel is clean and after cleaning if the error returns then the pressure switch needs to be tested and if bad then it needs replacement. Please get back to me if you have any other questions.

Kenmore Oasis Washer won't drain. "Ld" code during


Error code LD means long drain. This error appears when the washer takes more than 5 minutes to pump out the water till point where pressure switch resets. To resolve the issue you'll need to clean the drain hose, inspect if the drain hose is plugged. If the hose is fine, then remove the front kick panel and access the drain pump and filter, if you are unable to find the pump and filter remove the back panel as well and trace the drain hose to the bottom of the tub. There is a drain filter connected with the drain pump. It usually gets clogged, and needs to be cleaned every 6-8 months or so. The drain filter is a small white filter connected to drain pump with a hose. If it still doesn't work then you'll need to check the connections of the drain pump, check the electrical connections with a multimeter. Hope this helps... Please post back for more information.

Ld error code on kenmore oasis

ld stands for long drain. If you can remove the bottom panel you will see the pump in the middle front which has a clean out you can unscrew. There is usually obstructions in the clean out such as a sock causing the long drain. When u remove the clean out cover alot of water will come out so a wet vac comes in handy.
