Question about Whirlpool Calypso GVW9959K Top Load Washer
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.

LD can occur if your final drain pipe is clogged. Open the bottom panel under the machine--three screws. Use pliers to loosen the long black drain hose from the final drain port. If you are lucky water will pour out of the hose--left from what was still inside your drain hose. If the black hose is clogged--lint, plastic, metal parts, etc., use a coat hanger and hook onto the black rubber limiter and pull it out. Clean the limiter and replace it inside the hose.

I at first got a C1 code, replaced what it said was the motor, because it was drawing too many amps. After replacing the motor I started getting the LD code. I cleanded all the hoses and the pump and was still getting it. Check the compassitor on the pump motor. Could be failing not allowing the pump to run. I am in the process of doing this now, will post again when I find out the problem.

We had the same LD code error. The technician told us we were using the wrong detergent. High effenciency "HE" detergents should be used. He ran a bleach cycle to clean out the build up and the cycle ran all the way through! He said to use less than the "1 mark" on our current detergent until it is used up and then switch to the HE versions. Good luck!
