Question about Whirlpool Calypso GVW9959K Top Load Washer
Press stop, cancel twice to reset. The Ld error is when it takes longer than 5 minutes for the washer to drain and reset the sensor. You probably have a partially plugged strainer or drain line. To check the strainer, remove the kick panel at the front bottom of the machine. The strainer is ibetween the drum and the pump, being connected to the drum with a rubber hose. Open the strainer (caution, water!), and clean. If you did not find much in the strainer, clean the drain hose. Dump the contents of the drain hose into a bucket. If possible, run an empty losd with dth drain line pointed outside.
This should fix your issue!

SOURCE: ld code wont turn on
Well the generic answer for an LD code is Long Drain, chances are the Pump is clogged. if this is a Calypso, it can be fixed by tipping the unit back and unscrewing the three 5/16 screws in the bottom/front of the bottom panel. this will give yuou access to the pump. its on the right. there are 2 styles of pump, the older style is a large plastic piece that has 2 clips holding it on. this is next to impossible to clean out. if its lint of loose fabric that has gotten in, you wont be able to remove it. if its a sock, thats a lot easier. you will need a new pump if you cant clean it out. if its the newer style pump, these are made to be able to clean them easily. 4 torx head screws to remove the pump chamber housing, de-lint it and button it back up. on both pumps your going to have to deal with a lot of water ejecting. if you have hose clamps use those and put down lots of towels or a strategicly placed bucket. leaning the tub back as far as possible can help to, but not all the way, it could spill out the top of the tub then. best thing to do is to bring it outside where a spill doesnt matter. good luck.

SOURCE: my washer is showing the
LD stands for long drain. unit has decided it is taking too ling to drain the water out. check the drain hose for any obstructions. if you feel capable, you can also take off the water pump and do the same. may also be a bad water pump.

“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.
