This is another possible solution, more than likely most people will expierience clogs. I had the same problem today, upon removing the drain pump I noticed one of the dark blue wires was off of the connector that plugs into the pump, seems these are held in place by a "splice connector", and is a simple fix, after you unplug it from the drain pump take the connector and pull from the front and rear to open the splice jaws, re insert the wire and push back together. Plug it back into the pump, and that's it!

LD flashes when the water level does not change after the drain pump is on. Check the following:

Is it oversudsed?
Is the drain pump clogged?
Is the drain hose kinked or clogged?
Is the drain hose installed properly?
Is the drain hose height greater than 96"?
Press PAUSE/CANCEL to clear display.

    Tape the washer lid closed. Carefully lay the washer on its front panel. To remove the drain pump loosen the clamps and pull the inlet and outlet drain hoses off the pump.Note that there is a tab on the outlet connector that fits into a slot in the hose.Remove the three 5/16˝ hex-head screws from the drain pump and remove the pump from the tub.

SOURCE: LD is on my display-nothing will clear it and washer doesnt drain

the ld code means a long drain, what you probably have is something blocking the drain pump.
you can get to the drain pump from the back of the unit and it will be the pump on the left as you face the back.
you will need to remove the hose going into the pump and be ready for water to come out. sorry but you need to check inside the hose as there will be something blocking it. like a coin or some lint or a small sock.
when you get the item out of the hose then it should work again. you do not need to reset the control. once it knows the unit is draining properly it will be ok.

6200 whirlpool cabrio, Ld error code. Usually, cancel, start corrects problems. Now seems like it won't spin. Tried unplugging and restarting, that also didn't work.


most likely a clogged pump drain find it below the drum usually under a plastic lid bottom left if not under the lower panel below the door

find the 3 screws and remove the cover panel and clean the pump by twisting the pump valve cover counter clockwise

WHIRLPOOL CABRIO WASHER ERROR LD The Cabrio Washer LD error code stands for Long Drain which means the control has recognized the water in the tub is not draining fast enough during the cycle.
  1. Make sure the pump and drain hose are clear of debris that would cause a blockage.
  2. Check the impeller on the drain pump and make sure its not wobbly or busted.
  3. Remove the tub hose from the pump to the tub and check it for blockage.
  4. Make sure the pump is running when and getting the proper voltage when it should be.
  5. If all the above checks out then replace the drain pump motor.

Keep getting LD error code on whirlpool cabrio washer


Is there water in the bottom of the tub? If yes then open back of washer and remove drain pump (on left side) and pull off of tub and clear whatever is blocking its impeller.
If the water is all gone and drained but pump stays on for several minutes and then gives "LD" fault then open back and check the small clear tube that is attached to the tub. Make sure is not blocked with debris and check tube and tub for anything that could block the small clear tube. If these are ok then remove 3 screws in back of the control panel, pull open control panel and check the clear tub all the way up from the tub to the washer controller board (computer) make sure it is not kinked or disconnected. If not then the problem is most likely the pressure sensor on the (computer). This unit will have to be replaced.
You can test the sensor by doing the following: 1. When the "LD" fault comes on start by pressing the pause button. then pull the clear tube off of the computer board. Then attach a tight fitting drinking straw over the sensor. Press the start button and wait for 60 seconds - If the washer does not start the spin cycle on its own after the 60 seconds then **** on the drinking straw that you attached to the pressure sensor earlier. The sucking action should reset the sensor thus telling the computer that the water is drained and it will start the spin cycle. Just remember if you have to do this to get the washer to spin - that means the sensor is damaged most likely from moisture traveling up the tube over time. The computer board will need to be replaced. I believe it costs $205 without shipping. Hope this helps.
