    I CLEANED THE PUMP OUT AND IT SPINS FREE NOW . WHEN YOU START ON NORMAL WASH CYCLE THE MACHINE JUST FILLS WITH WATER AND WILL NOT STOP FILLING

  • chriscoll932 Feb 03, 2010

    WHEN I RUN THE MACHINE ON THE NORMAL CYCLE ALL IT DOES IS FILL WITH WATER AND WILL NOT STOP. MACHINE DOES NOT DO ANYTHING BUT FILL WITH WATER

  • chriscoll932 Feb 04, 2010

    WHEN YOU REFER TO THE WATER LEVEL SWITCH ARE YOU TALKING ABOUT THE PRESSURE OPERATING SWITCH THAT I REPLACED. THANKS CHRIS

If your machine is continuously filling but not overflowing then you have a siphoning effect in your drain hose. Usually the drain hose is stuck to far into the drain, but it can also be a sealed drain standpipe (you must have air around the drain hose as it enters the drain pipe), or a standpipe that is too low.
If your machine is continuously filling until it starts to overflow, then you have a bad water lever switch, an airleak in the air hose that goes to the switch, or you have sediment blocking the air hose or the air dome that the hose connects to on the outer tub itself. Remove the air hose at the water level switch, and blow through it to make sure it is clear. Make sure there are no air leaks. If it still overfills, you probably got a bad water level switch from the parts house. Good Luck, Appliance Specialists.

    Yes, a water level switch is usually an air pressure switch that is actuated by the rising air pressure in the air hose, that increases with the water level.

Hi,

LD indicates a long drain condition. This is usually due to something stuck in the coin trap or the units pump.

On occasion it is a burnt up pump motor but mostly it is something in the pump or coin trap.

Let me know, if needed further assistance.

Hope i helped you.

Thanks for using ' Fixya ' and have a nice day!!

    Thanks for your response!!

    TO GAIN ACCESS TO THE PRESSURE POD, THE BASKET HAS TO BE REMOVED. If you can blow on the tube and stop the water flow, check the tube for holes first. If that is OK then go to the pressure pod. On the newer units it is molded into the tub and is not removable.

    There could be a Larger Nut. You should use a spanner wrench which is a specialty tool for whirlpool/Kenmore. The nut can be removed using a big hammer and punch in a pincy, but you will destroy the nut AND your hand doing this.


    Let me know, if needed further assistance.

The screen on my washer is saying the code LD i dont have a manual and it wont drain completly. I took my clothes out and they were completly soaked with water. HELP! :D


The LD fault code indicates that the washer took longer than 5 minutes to pump out the water and reset the water level pressure switch. You should be able to press STOP/CANCEL to clear the display.

Check you drain hose for kinks or clogs. You could have a clog or failure in the drain pump that is causing this problem

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.

Kenmore Oasis HE 27082 Displays "LD" error falsely


Hello,

Since that you let repairman do twice and didn't fixed the problem, I think your washer have still warranty from the vendor. and they repair it free.

Please verify the panel board of the machine maybe got grounded in the wiring or got wet. How ever you can do that in your own you should consult the repairman on that matter. however the two repairman did not resolve, so its better to bring the washer's to the vendor. im sure they can fix the issue or you will be enlightened by their valuable suggestion and solution.

may this help

Code LD


* The lid switch may be defective. If it is, the washing machine doesn't spin. The switch is inside the washing machine main housing near the door frame. Often you have to raise or open the top or front of the washing machine to get to the switch. If it's defective, you need to replace it.

Ld (Long Drain) flashes


There is definately a pump that should be working to remove the water. Try to listen for it when it gets to the draining cycle. A pump is a part that typically has to be changed form time to time, and you if you're handy you can probably do the work yourself.

There is probably also a board that controls thisd, but I don't know if that can be changed.
