    I seem to have the same problem. I ran the diagnostic test that you mentioned. The timer went to 90 seconds, it ran its test and shut off after the countdown. I did not get a code.

    I ran the test as discussed and got no codes. I then tried to run a spin cycle as it had water in it. It spins but doesn't seem to drain. After some time it gave an Ob code and stopped. Thing is there was not anything in the machine except the water, the clothes were removed when the unit failed last week.

Whirlpool Calypso error code


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


Thanks
Rylee

Washer stops when Ld comes up on display before final spin, but washer drains fine.


ld flashes if it takes longer than 5 min to pump out water to the point where the operating pressure switch resets.check the drain line for kinks,check drain for blockage,check pump operation.

FL code washer not draining


“FL” (Over Fill) flashes
The washer will beep every 10 seconds with no time-out. The
pump will cycle one half minute on, one half minute off, until
the overfill switch is reset or power is discontinued to the unit.
Press STOP/CANCEL to clear the display. Shut off the water
faucets to the inlet hoses if water continues to flow.


Here is the complete manual.

Won't fillCalypso whirlpool washer model#GVW9959KQ1 LD on display


LD is long drain error, the machine does not fill because it is in fault mode, but error is on drain system.

If there is a drain problem, the parts that must be checked are drain hose, pressure switch, drain pump assembly, timer control.

Check if the drain hose at the back is kinked or blocked.

Test the pressure switch, blow into the small hose, and use a multimeter to check if switch has continuity.

Remove access panel and get to the drain pump hose to check for ablockage. You will need to disconnect the hose and collect the water.

Keep a container ready to collect water when you undo pump hose.

Ifall the rest is OK, test and eventually replace timer board.Problemwith water pump are far more commonly causing this problemsthenfaulty timer board.

Water pump out??


The washer filled with too much water, causing a switch to trip. Then everything stops. It tries to drain during FL but if it can't drain, the washer powers down.Choose Drain & Spin to let the washer drain. Then you have to take the washer apart. Fix the problem. I personally can't tell you what to do because I don't own a Calypso.

POSSIBLE CAUSES:
Bad Pump
High Water Flow
Other Causes

WP HAS HAD A ON GOING ISSUE WITH THIS THAT IS THE REASON WHY THEY REDIGNED THE DRAIN PUMP. YOU NEED TO 1ST DRAIN OUT AS MUCH WATER MANUALLY AS YOU CAN THEN DISCONNECT ALL YOUR HOSES FROM WALL TAKE THE WM OUTSIDE TO DRAIN THE OTHER 3 GALLONS OF WATER YOU CANNOT SEE. TURN THE MACHINE ON ITS BACK THEN USING A 5/16 NUT DRIVER REMOVE 4 SCREWS ON THE BOTTOM PANEL. REMOVE PANEL AND YOUR DRAIN MTR IN ASSESSIBLE. THE PART CAN BE ORDERED AT WWW.REPAIRCLINIC.COM

Calypso - water goes straight to drain hose-not drum


the hose may still be filled from last cycle. try to put machine in final spin mode where all water from previous wash will be spun out the drain hose. once a siphon is started it can only be stopped by introducing air into the drain hose.
