Question about Kenmore Oasis HE 27082 Top Load Washer

Kenmore elite top loader washer

In the middle of one of the washing cycles the machine stopped and I got a message saying "LD" I looked it up in the machine's manual and it says that the drain hose might be clogged. We checked it but that's not the problem. The machine won't even shut off. We had to unplug it for it to go off. Any ideas as to what else might be the problem before we call a repair guy and they charge us an arm and a leg to fix it.. Thanks.

Re: Kenmore elite top loader washer

I pressed buttons, restarted it and it just beeps. I unplugged and restarted only to get the "LD" and stops with a beep and water still in the drum.
SOLUTION: Take the large metal backing off. At the bottom of the plastic drum near the left, is a small black rubber "L" shaped tube where the water drains. GET A BUCKET AND SOME TOWELS or you'll flood the room when you disconnect this tube. Use large plyers to take off the clamp. Once you remove it IT WILL DRAIN have bucket ready!! Once the water drains look in the tube and the connectors to the left, you should find your problem. I pulled a piece of rug out from there that was jammed in there and next to the motor causing the problem. Reconnecting this "L" shaped tube was a bit hard but doable. GOOD LUCK

Ld code. It won't drain. Not the drain pump (I changed) and not clogged pipe.

Slow drain code. How high is the outlet pipe ABOVE the machine?

Machine stops during cycle

"LD" stands for long drain meaning that the pump could be bad or that it just needs to be cleaned out.

Kenmore Elite Top Loader reading LD code.

You may have an obstruction in your pump which causes it to drain slower than usual, or binds the impeller. Flow can still be pretty good even with this problem but the brain will sense a longer than normal drain time and flag the error. Try removing the water pump and look for underwires, paper clips or hairpins.

Ld error message

It most likely means long drain, the drain line could be clogged or kinked. You could also have something jamming the drain pump or a bad drain pump.
