Calypso washer has a ld error i need a couple more possibilities for resolving the issue as i have checked those already. just a list of possibles.

is the unit full of water or still have some water in it? if so this code is for a long drain. the drain pumps will get plugged up with lint and cause the failure code.
tip the unit back and take the bottom off. then you will see the pump. take off the hoses and also look inside the pump to see if it is plugged with lint and that will cause it to not drain completely.

Kenmore Elite Calypso wont drain

Oh the dreaded calypso pump...Seen that one a million times. Pumps get clogged pretty easily. Try to get the water out manually first. Than push the washer back and lean it against the wall so that you can access the bottom. Remove the 3 screws. Bottom panel should come off. The pump is on the right, its black. Get ready with a shop vac or alot of towels, theres gonna be a flood. There are 2 clamps on black hoses that need to be taken off so that you can slide the hoses off the pump. Next remove the 3 bolts that hold the pump in place. Next lower the pump out of the hole it sits in. Youll have to follow the wiring harness up and disconnect it. Now you can try and clen out the pump or replace it. Part # is 285990. Costs about 75.00. Hope that helps. Let me know if yiu need more help. Dave

Kenmore elite calypso HE washer

turn mach on spin,if you hear the pump turning normally you have a blocked sump.if the pump hums,you have a jammed pump.the pump is located under mach,tilt backwards as far as possible and remove screws on ft of access plate.once plate is removed pump will be on right side either held on by 2 clips or 4 torx screws.the 4 torx screws will split the pump in half and allow you to clean it out.the 2 clip pump cannot be split in half but you can remove the 2 hose clamps and try to remove what is jamming(you have a 50/50 chance of getting item out of this kind of pump).bail out as much water as possible,this mach will still have a huge amount of water in it even after bailing it so have some buckets handy and slowly drain from pump before removing.if there is something stuck in the sump,call a technician.lot more complicated and involves special tools and removing entire basket and u-joint assy..good luck

CL or CA is an over amp draw most likely caused by the motor thermal protector or motor controller It can be caused by too large of a load try to press "STOP/CANCEL" to clear if the problem returns you will need to get inside the unit

Usually "FL" means one of two problems, both with the drain system. The good news is that both are relatively easy to fix yourself. "LD" can also be fixed by doing the following as well.

First, get the washer somewhere outside, in a garage or basement where you can afford to have large amounts of water spill out onto the ground. It may be easier to dismantle the inside of the basin and get as much of the water shop-vac'd out before you move it. Once it's outside, open up the back panel, and on the bottom left you will see a large black hose with clips on either end. Take the clip that attaches the hose to the bottom of the tub off and all the left over water will spill out. Turn it on it's face now, take the bottom panel off, and remove each of the clips on the hoses (drain hose to) and make sure nothing is blocking any of the lines. If it is, then remove it and this MIGHT fix your problem.

The other option (if the previous doesn't work) is to replace your pump motor, because odds are it has gone bad. The Calypso washers are notorious for having drain issues, and there was even a class action lawsuit a few years back that would have likely allowed you to get the washer fixed for free. If you do need to get a new drain pump motor, they go for anywhere between $80-100 and are a breeze to switch out. Hope this helps.

Kenmore Elite Calypso won't drain

The most likely thing to cause the code and the leak is the water pump. If the shaft seal on the pump leaks, the water gets into the drain pump motor and shorts it out. The code is telling you there is a high current/amp draw at one of the motors.
You can see if the pump is leaking by tilting the machine back, removing the screws that hold the bottom to the front edge of the machine and looking at the pump. If the pump is leaking, you will need a new pump and possibly a new motor control board.
Post back if you need further instructions and we will walk through the repair.
