The fault code "LD" indicates "long drain" condition. It's not only if the water drained, but how fast it drained. Check the drain line for kinks or obstructions. Check the pump. Remove the hoses and use a flashlight to look into the suction port. Make sure nothing is clogging the pump (like the occasional stray sock) and check the pump impeller. Make sure there are no broken/missing blades and that the impeller spins freely. If there are broken/missing blades or if you can't get the impeller to spin freely, the pump is defective. Hopefully it's just a clogged drain line, pump, or a jammed impeller. Sorry for your trouble and I hope this helped. Best wishes.

Will not pump out water and getting CE, OB, and LD codes.


Hello, check the fuse on the motor control board and see if it is blown. If so, You could just have a bad board, but it may be a drive motor or pump motor. The most common thing is for the pump seal to leak into the pump motor and cause a short. The CE code means the 2 boards can not communicate with each other so be sure to check the wiring connectors between them.

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.

Calypso washer gives error code Ld or ob. won't finish load or drain


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 CODE BUT NOT PUMP


CHECK THE AREA MOULDED INTO THE OUTER TUB AT THE
BOTTOM BACK WHERE THE HOSES ATTACH TO THE TUB.
A FAVORITE PLACE FOR OBJECTS TO GET CAUGHT. IF O.K., CHECK THE ELECTRICAL WIRING FROM THE PUMP
MOTOR TO THE CONTROL BOARD. THERE IS A CONNECTOR BEHIND THE FRONT PANEL AT THE BASE. MAKE SURE THE PINS IN THE CONNECTOR ARE NOT CORRODED.
IF ALL IS O.K., REPLACE THE CONTROLLER FOR THE PUMP
MOTOR.
