Most likely your pump is clogged. Google my post on www.bobvila.com to see how to get to pump and check/replace it if necessary. Hope this helps.

Hi there,

Well error Ld means - Long drain - The Ld error code indicates a long drain. It is displayed when water level does not change while the drain pump is running. Anyway you can please check out the following steps -
Is the drain hose kinked or clogged?
Check the drain pump for clogs. Is it running?
Is the drain hose height greater than 95 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?

You can try to reset your washer by Pressing STOP/CANCEL. Please check out all the above steps, post comments if further you have the same problem.......

Good Luck!!

Thanks

SOURCE: 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 www.washermd.com

FL (flood condition) also can be an indicator of a bad pump. The washer tries to drain and cannot because the pump has failed or is jammed with debris.

You can run a complete washer diagnostic procedure to see if you can isolate the fault by doing the following. I recommend you make sure the room is quiet so you can hear the pump motor running when expected, as well as the main drive that nutates and spins.

Perform a "key dance" to put the washer in the diagnostic mode by pressing the Prewash Options button, Wash Time, Prewash Options, Wash Time - each 2 times in rapid succession within 5 seconds total. The display will change to 99 and begin counting down (in seconds) as it runs the following tests. Listen for the pump motor to actually run and not just "hum", indicating a jam or burnout.

Display 99-81, Nutate & fill
Display 80-61, Nutate & recirculate
Display 60-41, Nutate, Fill & drain **
Display 40-21, Nutate, Fill & drain **
Display 20-0, Spin & drain **

You can cancel the test in progress at any time by pressing the Stop/Cancel button.

**during these phases the pump will run forwards and backwards (recirculate & drain). If you do not hear water pumping inside the washer or draining out the drain, your pump is likely bad and needs to be replaced.

The old style pump was a two-part assembly and the re-engineered part # mentioned above is a single piece that solves the impeller failure problem the original pumps were prone to have.

www.pcappliancerepair.com sells replacement pump part # 285990 for this washer and they are a reliable supplier with a good value. You can purchase a lifetime warranty on the pump from them for an extra fee.

Unfortunately there is not enough room in this text box to post the pump removal & replacement procedure but you can get your local handyman to do the work for you if you are not inclined, as I was, to drain the washer and turn it on its side to figure out how to replace the pump.

The other problem is that once you start getting a pump failure you need to look at the root cause. If the pump was ruined by draw strings or debris being sucked into the pump impeller, it is time to replace the top wash plate assembly (the plastic plate inside the washer that the clothes sit on).

There is a rubber seal on the outside edge of this plate which wears out over time and rotates upward, opening a bigger gap between the plate and the stainless steel drum which lets draw strings and other things get sucked all the way down into the pump. The upper wash plate & seal is a single unit and the seal itself cannot be replaced as it is molded into the plastic piece. Order this from Sears to insure a more recent 'cure date' on the rubber seal from the manufacturer, rather than 3rd party suppliers who might stock the part for longer periods and have old rubber seals past their cure date. The wash plate should be replaced about every other year.

Ld code. It won't drain. Not the drain pump (I changed) and not clogged pipe.


Slow drain code. How high is the outlet pipe ABOVE the machine?

My Kenmore Elite Calypso is displaying the letters LD and will not start.


Assuming this is a WASHER, and not a dryer - LD is an error code for Long Drain.
This means the pressure sensor has not reported the tub to be empty after a certain number of seconds.
Usual causes - due to poor design - are the outlet line strainer being plugged with coins, legos, panties, socks, etc... or the pressure switch (or tubing) failing.
Remove the pump's inlet line (outlet from tub) and check that the line is cleared of foreign objects.
If it is clear - move to the pressure switch. Many times the tubing is cracked - or moisture has developed inside the tube. Remove it from the switch and attempt to blow in the tube.

I have a kenmore elite top load calypso wash motion at the end of wash cycle it does not spin and flashes a LD on display I have to turn off and just do a spin cycle to to spin dry.


LD (long drain). possible blockage at pump..check to see if pump spline is stripped. also if the drain hose is plumbed in airtight then this may be slowing the draining process.
