I have an Kenmore Elite HE5t, that is giving me an F-20, note after starting any cycle. I can not locate the owners manual. What should I do next?


The F20 code indicates that the control board is not detecting water entering the machine. If this is happening in the middle of the cycle even though the washer initially fills properly, then you could have a siphon problem through your drain hose. Make sure that the drain hose is properly installed. Check to see if the end of the hose is stuck way down the stand pipe. If it is, then the hose will need to be pulled out. Only about 6" to 8" should protrude down the stand pipe.

Check your fill hoses. Make sure that they are not kinked or clogged. If you are using FloodSafe supply hoses as shown in the image below, this could be causing your problem. This type of fill hose will not work on your washer.

Check the water pressure coming from your fill hoses.

Washer is diplaying Ld and won't restart


Hi,

Ld stands for long drain.

Here is what the manufacture says about that error, my comments will follow.

LONG DRAIN If the drain time exceeds eight minutes, Ld will be displayed, the water valves will turn off, and the pump will stop running.

Press PAUSE/CANCEL to drain the machine. The display will be cleared and the machine will turn off after a maximum of eight minutes. Possible Causes/Procedure
1. Check the drain hose and make sure it is not plugged or kinked.
2. Unplug washer or disconnect power.
3. Check the drain pump filter for foreign objects, and also make sure the hose from the tub to the pump is not plugged or kinked.
4. Check the electrical connections at the pump and make sure the pump is running.
5. Plug in2_bing.gif washer or reconnect power.
6. If the above does not correct the problem, go to step 7.
7. Unplug washer or disconnect power.
8. Replace the pump.

Phil's comments -----> This error is usually due to something getting stuck in the drain pump or drain hose, typically after washing a rug with a rubber backing that has come off or small articles like baby socks that were not put into a garment bag prior to washing.

To clean out the pump the machine would need disassembled and is best done by a service professional unless you are up for a good challenge.

Ld code on any cycle


“F21” (AKA SD) is a Long (SLOW) Drain error (LD). If the drain time exceeds 8 minutes this error code will be displayed. In addition, a “SUDS” error may also be displayed. This may be an indication of a drain pump problem and/or clog in the drain line. You will need to check the following:


1.First, attempt to unplug the washer for at LEAST 30 minutes to reset the Central Control Unit (CCU). Sometimes this is all that is required to correct momentary glitches with the unit. If the error code returns, proceed to step 2.
2.Check the drain hose to make sure it is not kinked or clogged.
3.Check the electrical connections to the pump and ensure the pump is running.
4.Remove the drain pump filter and check for foreign objects and/or debris.
To check the drain pump, click on the following link for step-by-step instructions

If the above procedures do not correct the problem, it is recommended by the manufacturer to replace the drain pump.

My kenmore elite calypso washer


"Ld" indicates Long Drain: Ld flashes when the water level does not change after the drain pump is on.
depends on the following factors:
1-> the drain pipe could be longer than 8 feet
2-> the drain hose could clogged or kinked
3-> the pressure hose connection from the tub to the machine motor control could be pinched or plugged?
4-> and finally the pump might not be running well.

If you need any sort of help with the disassembling of machine tell me the exact model number and i can provide with some internal diagrams.Good luck with the machine.Please do rate my solution, also do post comments in case of further doubts.

Kenmore Elite LD Error


LD means long drain. First check to make sure that there is nothing stuck inside your drain hose. The next thing to check is your pump. lean the washer back and locate the pump. Next take it loose and clean out any debrit inside it. That should take care of it. If not check your lid switch.
