Check the drain line for kinks or obstructions and check the pump. It isn't just whether the water drained, but how quickly it drained as well. Remove the hoses from the pump and use a flashlight to look into the suction port. Make sure that nothing is clogging the pump like that occasional stray sock, etc., and check the pump impeller. Make sure there are no broken or missing blades and that the impeller spins freely. If there are any broken/missing blades or if you cannot get the impeller to spin freely, the pump is defective. Hopefully it's just a clogged drain line, pump, or jammed impeller. Sorry for your trouble and I hope this helped. Best wishes.

Testimonial: "It was an underwire from a bra stuck in the clear plastic area. It was blocking a floating ball that must regulate flow? Works great again. Thanks!!!!"

    An obstruction in the drain line or pump will increase the time it takes for the water to drain, which is what triggers this code. Best wishes.

I do not have an owners manual for my Calypso washer. What does the LD sign mean?


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 accept the solution if the issue is resolved or post a comment for further assistance.


Thanks

Our washer gets to about 23 minutes left and it comes up with LD. What does that mean?


ld is long drain time. Maybe you have something in the drain pump or stuck in the drain.

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'' error


Hi there,
“LD” stands for “long drain,” meaning it took an excessively long time for water to drain out of the washer. Common causes for this are kinked drain hose or clothing, like panties or socks, caught in the pump suction hose. Why, I’ve even heard of bra wires coming loose and getting stuck in that hose, collecting all sorts of gookus and pinching off the flow of water to the pump. Can you imagine? Yea verily, as surely as the Sacred Suds doth eternally pass my lips, the “LD” error code springs forth from such anomalies.

I have the Kenmore elite calypso washer and it stops and displays LD. What does this maean and how do i fix it? Thanks!


“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.

Washer fills with water and stops


Hello, LD stands for long drain.
If all the water isn't out of the unit within a certain time, the ld will flash.
Could be 2 things.

1) There's lint stuck in the pump preventing the water to drain properly or

2) You're using too much soap causing lots of suds also preventing the pump from draining properly. If this is the case, what you need to do is run the washer on full load with no detergent and clothes. Let it go thru the cycle and get rid of eccess suds. This is most likely your problem.

Best of luck :)

I have a cabrio washer and keep getting LD error code, washer looks to drain fine but won't advance on to spin cycle - sits there for a few minutes trying to drain even though no more water is in tube,...


Friend,
ngfam1 At your service!
When it is a code the machine is telling you that there is a fault and the electronic system needs to be diagnosed by a trained tech.
My advise is,
You spent enough money buying that Cabrio to be experimenting and guessing and buying expensive parts for it!
Let the tech fix it 123 and your done. It may not have needed the drain pump and now that money could have covered the service call!


If so here is a good company that's found nation wide.
A&E Factory Service
A&E has schedulers available to take appointments 24/7
And they do warranty work too, for most manufactures!
1(800) 905-9505

You will be fine
Bless You ngafm1
PLEASE GIVE ME A GOOD RATING BEFORE YOU SIGN OFF!
