Machine shows LD even when water pump was replaced

Whirlpool Calypso wash machine. The machine showed LD. I paid the repairman $300 to replaced water pump. Ran Rinse/Spin cycle. The machine timed down to 16 minutes and froze. The LD came up again. What is the real problem?

Dccvan,
OK, now that you have a new pump, look at the back ouf the unit. You will have to take off the back cover. On the back of the tub you can see where the 'check balls' are for draining & recirculation. Here's a picture: click here. It might be a little difficult to see through the plastic, but check to see if there is anything stuck inside there near the check balls. If so, you have to take the pump hoses off at the tub connections. You can use mechanical finger grabbers to get stuff out. Check this picture also: click here. If you take the hoses off, check them for debris inside. Check your drain hose to the house drain also, could be something in that hose too. Flex shaft mechanical fingers look like this: click here. you can get them at just about any autoparts store.

Hope this helps,

Calypso washer won't drain


It sounds like you may have something stuck in the pump...try and locate the pump(normaly at the bottom of machine)and unscrew the cover...be aware that the machine may still have water in it....once you unscrew the cover,have a look and a feel inside...there may be a coin or other object stoppint the pump from turning...remove any foreighn object...replace the screw on cover and try to drain the water again....this should solve your problem.

Whirlpool Calypso error code


Hi


Thanks for using FixYa. Error Ld means long drain and it flashes when the water level will not change even after the drain pump is on. To resolve this issue you’ll need to check the drain hose and the drain pump for any blockages. Also check if the pump is running fine and replace the part that has gone bad. Please do rate the solution if the issue is resolved or post a comment for further assistance.


Thanks

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) )

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