Whirlpool Calypso: LD error message

I have the Calypso model and with about 4 minutes left in the cycle, I get the dreaded "LD" error code.

I cleaned out the hoses AND replaced the pump/motor assembly to the new improved model.

I still get the same "LD" error message.

To the best of my knowledge, I think the water sensor is now faulty and it doesn't recognize that the water is removed. Am I on the right track, or is this still an issue with the pump/motor???

Thanks for your help.

    Could you elaborate? What is a 'hall sensor'? I tried googling it and i did not get any hits. What does it sense? Water level?


    Thanks a ton for chiming in so quickly!

    Could you elaborate on where the hall sensor is located and what does it sense? I'm assuming water level?



    Thanks.

Ld error code


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.

Why do i get a "ld' signal or a "co" message?


LD = 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
I don't see an CO error. Here is a complete service manual for your washer. I am sure it will come in handy in the future. Look on page 46 for a list of the error codes.

When running wash cycle, the washer stops during initial cycle when water is going into tub. The "Ld" error code comes up on the panel and sometimes it is accompanied by a humming sound. Can not start...


LD is long Drain.

You'll need to crawl underneath and disconnect the hoses to check the traps for obstructions.
Have a pan handy to catch the water.

Whirlpool calypso flashes ld code


"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.

The error code is LD. There is nothing wrong with the draining. If you choose the extra rinse and spin it will go thru that cycle just fine.


If the machine is draining in 5 minutes or less the operating pressure switch may be intermittently malfunctioning.
The attached manual should help. Notice the test on page 58.

Calypso washer - LD Code - clothes still wet


harborstuff,
The code on your machine stands for 'Long Drain'. Ld flashes if it takes longer than 5 minutes to pump out water to a point where the operating pressure switch resets. I would bet that the bath mats left a bunch of stuff stuck in the recirculation pump hose, or pump itself, and the water cannot be drained fast enough. Check the intake and exit hoses of the recirc pump. It's easiest to get to the pump through the front panel of the machine(click here). Looks like this: click here. Hope this helps.
(Definitely get under there and check to make sure the pump hoses are not clogged. At $129 it's an expensive fix for a $10 bath mat that clogged up the hose with fuzz. 'know what I'm sayin'' :o) )

-samson39

BTW, I have the maintenance manual & have experience at replacing the recirc. pump, control board, motor board, touchpad, & lid switch so far.

Calypso washer gives error code Ld or ob. won't finish load or drain


Ld=Long drain. If it takes longer than five minutes to drain the water the operating pressure switch resets. Most common problem associated with this code is a clogged or failing water pump and hoses.

ob=Off balance. Open the lid and redistribute the clothes evenly around the tub, close lid and press the start button.

Whirlpool washer error code problem


LD is long drain associated with two problems the drain hose install and the pump. Debris in the pump and a drain hose inserted too far will cause most of these issues.

What does ld mean on my washer?


op is probably ob, off balance, the ld is long discharge, most likely the pump is bad or full of junk, the origional pumps were updated to a better design so as not to get stopped up.
