LD CODE BUT NOT PUMP

I HAD A LD CODE AND HAD THE PUMP AND MOTOR REPLACED, THERE ARE NO CLOGS IN THE TUB, OR ANY OF THE DRAIN HOSES ANY OTHER SUGGESTIONS?

Posted by on

1 Answer

CHECK THE AREA MOULDED INTO THE OUTER TUB AT THE
BOTTOM BACK WHERE THE HOSES ATTACH TO THE TUB.
A FAVORITE PLACE FOR OBJECTS TO GET CAUGHT. IF O.K., CHECK THE ELECTRICAL WIRING FROM THE PUMP
MOTOR TO THE CONTROL BOARD. THERE IS A CONNECTOR BEHIND THE FRONT PANEL AT THE BASE. MAKE SURE THE PINS IN THE CONNECTOR ARE NOT CORRODED.
IF ALL IS O.K., REPLACE THE CONTROLLER FOR THE PUMP
MOTOR.

I have the whirlpool Cabrio model WTW6600SB2. We keep getting the code LD when we use the normal rinse cycle. Also trying to do a clean with bleach cycle and t is supposed to go 60 mins and goes less...


The LD:
Ld (F32) Long Drain "Ld" flashes when water level drop ain't sensed by that fancy lectronic control.
Check these things out:
Drain pump fouled/clogged
Drain hose too high for propah pumpin.
Pressure hose tubing clogged/pinched came loose from that fancy control upstairs.

My Maytag Bravos quiet series 300 washing machine stopped. Won't drain. A message Ld shows. Not sure what to do


Hi and welcome to FixYa, I am Kelly.
My response is very long and will be in 2 parts this is PART 1

Here is what the service manual says about Ld:

"Ld" (Washer is taking too long to drain

water from the wash tub)

Check the following:

Is the drain hose kinked or clogged?

Is the drain hose installed properly? See

"Connect the Drain Hose," page 2-5. Press
PAUSE/CANCEL to clear display
Also:

Is the drain hose clogged, or the end of

the drain hose more than 96? (244 cm)

above the floor?
See "Drain System," page 2-3.
6. To remove the drain pump: (there are 2 pumps... the drain pump is on the left)

a) 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.

b) Remove the three 5/16? hex-head

screws from the drain pump and remove
the pump from the tub.
Check the pump inlet and the tub outlet for obstructions.
Pump electrical winding resistance test:

-Disconnect the wire connector from the

drain pump terminals.

- Set the ohmmeter to the R x 1 scale.

- Touch the ohmmeter test leads to each

of the drain pump terminals. The meter
should indicate between 10.5 and 14 ?.

----Due to the design of the machine the 2 wires going to the drain pump have be notorous for backing out of the plastic connector. Check the connector of the pump for loose terminal connections. --

From the Ld troubleshooting steps / procedure:

Long Drain

Ld flashes when the water level does not change after the drain pump is on.

• Is the drain hose or the drain pump clogged?

• Is the drain hose height greater than 96? ?

• Is the pressure hose connection from the tub to the machine/motor control pinched or plugged?
• Is the pump running? If not, see TEST #7.

TEST 7

TEST #7 Drain/Recirculation

Perform the following checks if washer fails to drain or recirculate.

1. See Activation of Manual Diagnostic Test

Mode, and perform the Manual: Pumps

test.

2. Remove the console to access the machine/

motor control assembly. See Accessing

& Removing the Electronic Assemblies.

3. Visually check that the P4 connector is

inserted all the way into the machine/motor

control.

If visual check passes, go to step 4.

If visual check fails, reconnect P4 and

repeat step 1.

4. Remove connector P4 from the machine/ motor control and check resistance values of pump motor windings. Resistance values should match those shown in wiring diagram, page 7-1.

If resistance values are good, go to step 7.

If winding measurements are much higher (tens of ohms to infinity) than shown in wiring diagram, a problem

exists in the motor winding or in the connection between the machine/motor

control and the motor. Go to step 5.

5. Tilt machine forward to access the bottom

of the machine and the pumps. See
Figure 1, page 6-13.
6. Check the resistance at the pump motor. Remove the connector at the motor and

take measurements across pump terminals. Measurements should be as shown in the wiring diagram.

If winding measurements are much higher (tens of ohms to infinity) than shown in wiring diagram, replace the

pump motor.

If the resistance at the pump motor is correct, there is an open circuit in the wiring between the motor and the machine/

motor control. Repair or replace the lower wiring harness.

If the pump motor windings and machine/ motor control check OK, repair or replace the pump. Be sure to check

the pump and tub sump for foreign objects before replacing pump.

7. See Activation of Manual Diagnostic Test Mode, and perform the Manual: Pumps test.

8. If the Manual: Pumps test failed, then the machine/motor control has failed:

Unplug the washer or disconnect power.Replace the machine/motor control assembly.
Perform the Manual: Pump test.

My washer is indicating a "ld" problem. I have readjusted the load and restarted the machine but it continues to stop and the "ld" code keeps coming on. I have a very small load in the machine so I know...


Hello, the "Ld" error code indicates a long drain. It is displayed when water level does not change while the drain pump is running. You can check for the following problems:
  • Is the drain hose kinked or clogged?
  • Check the drain pump for clogs. Is it running?
  • Is the drain hose height greater than 96 inches?
  • Is the pressure switch hose connection from the tub to the machine control board pinched or plugged?
  • Do you see excessive suds in the basket? Are you using high efficiency (HE) detergent?
  • Thanks

During the wash cycle, the washer started beeping and I found a code "LD" on the dial. What is the problem


Here is what the manufacture says about LD -- my comments will follow

Long Drain
Ld flashes when the water level does not
change after the drain pump is on.
ô Is the drain hose or the drain pump clogged?
ô Is the drain hose height greater than 96"?
ô Is the pressure hose connection from the tub
to the machine/motor control pinched,
kinked, plugged or leaking air?

Phil's comments ---->

Almost always this code is due to a plugged drain pump or hose, it is especially common when washing a rug with a rubber backing that comes off or small articles like baby socks that get caught in the drain system of the machine. Depending on how adventurous you feel in taking this unit apart is your call, but due to the complexity of it I would recommend calling a service expert.

Just one guys opinion..

What does the Ld code mean on a calypso Kenmore Elite Washing Mashine


Hello there
LD means a long drain
it is taking longer than 8 minutes to drain out the tub
please check the following
First unplug the machine to prevent electrical shock·
Check wiring harness to ensure they are all connected and are not fried
·If needed remove the side panel and Check the hoses going to pump for clogs and all drain hoses and drainage system
· Check circuit board that controls the pump to see if any wires are burnt or have failed
once the faulty part or the clog has been cleared simply plug in the machine and press the cancel button and resume your normal washing operation
Hope this has been very helpful for you
Best regards Michael

Calypso washer gives error code Ld or ob. won't finish load or drain


Ld=Long drain. If it takes longer than five minutes to drain the water the operating pressure switch resets. Most common problem associated with this code is a clogged or failing water pump and hoses.

ob=Off balance. Open the lid and redistribute the clothes evenly around the tub, close lid and press the start button.
