Usually "FL" means one of two problems, both with the drain system. The good news is that both are relatively easy to fix yourself. "LD" can also be fixed by doing the following as well.
First, get the washer somewhere outside, in a garage or basement where you can afford to have large amounts of water spill out onto the ground. It may be easier to dismantle the inside of the basin and get as much of the water shop-vac'd out before you move it. Once it's outside, open up the back panel, and on the bottom left you will see a large black hose with clips on either end. Take the clip that attaches the hose to the bottom of the tub off and all the left over water will spill out. Turn it on it's face now, take the bottom panel off, and remove each of the clips on the hoses (drain hose to) and make sure nothing is blocking any of the lines. If it is, then remove it and this MIGHT fix your problem.
The other option (if the previous doesn't work) is to replace your pump motor, because odds are it has gone bad. The Calypso washers are notorious for having drain issues, and there was even a class action lawsuit a few years back that would have likely allowed you to get the washer fixed for free. If you do need to get a new drain pump motor, they go for anywhere between $80-100 and are a breeze to switch out. Hope this helps.

I am not a repair professional. I am just a 78 year old man who has been making his own repairs for about 50 years. Therefore the washer ID doesn't mean
anything to me. It's been about 55 years since I had experience with front load washers. However I can refer you to www.applianceaid.com where they have very good and complete trouble shooting and repair information on front loaders. I think you'll find what you need there. Don't worry about the timer, they hardly ever go bad. Good luck with it. If I have helped you, please rate my advice on fixya.

My fabric softener intermiitently was left with clear water in the tray. The serviceman replaced the tray which did not fix the problem, he then replaced the valve assembly. That fixed the problem for about a year and now I am experiencing the same problem. Being the unit is now out of warranty, I purchased a valve assembly and replaced it but what I found in the process was that the real problem was that after removing the filter screen where the hose connects I found a SECOND mesh filter that was plugged up. I removed it with a needle from the edge so I didnt damage the screen. I think you could also just used a spray bottle with some water and a Q tip to clean. I wasted $50 on a valve assembly, but I did discover this second filter screen that is not mentioned in the user manual. Hope this helps someone because I have not seen this solution posted anywhere.
