Question about Washing Machines
Machine cycles normally until it has 6 minutes left, Then after 5 minutes
of being stuck in the spin/ autofluff cycle, an " Ld " ( long drain ) code
is displayed on the LED board. I checked the drain hose, pump for lint
blockage, and the pump suction and discharge hoses. Sears has replaced both electronic control panals, the pump two times, the
u-joint. This machine has had more problems, than I can count.
The machine is 6 years old, we kept on renewing the warranty, but
this time the cost to extend the warranty was more than the machine
is worth. We had another Kenmore washer ( an inexpensive one ) that
lasted 15 years. This "advanced" model, The Calypso is CRAP.
A 6ya expert can help you resolve that issue over the phone in a minute or two.

have you removed bottom panel and cleaned pump..old style pump was held om with clips but the splined shaft in the pump would strip out and never pump properly only solution was replace pump/motor assembly..new style pump had 4 screws in bottom and could be removed and cleaned

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.
