Whirlpool Calipso model clothes washer shows a LD and doesnt run

My Whirlpool Calipso model clothes washer shows a "LD" on the screen and doesn't work: I have un-plugged the machine, moved it to check the hose, tried several settings to drain,spin,etc, and it still has 3 inches of water in the tub, and won't cycle or run.

Once it showed an " OB" on the screen, but now it is back to the LD readout.

Any ideas?

is there an on-line repair manual or?

Thanks !

The OB indicates and out of balance condition has been detected by the motor control.
One thing about the OB error is that the lid must be opened to clear the error and allow the washer to advance to the next part of the cycle. If the lid is not opened to adjust the clothes then the OB error will happen again.

If the OB error was cleared and the OB occurs with an empty load then the motor control has failed.

The drain pump must work. The image below shows how to run a diagnostic test to check the drain pump. Follow the instructions in the image below and check the drain pump operation. If the pump runs and the water does not drain then the sump is clogged. If the pump hums but does not run then the pump needs to be replaced.

I have a Calipso it fills but LD comes on and nothing


Hi


Thanks for using FixYa. Error Ld means long drain and it flashes when the water level will not change even after the drain pump is on. To resolve this issue you’ll need to check the drain hose and the drain pump for any blockages. Also check if the pump is running fine and replace the part that has gone bad.Please do rate the solution if the issue is resolved or post a comment for further assistance.


Thanks

Whirlpool Calipso Clothes Washer (yea, that one...) Trouble code ''CA'' means I have to remove tiny cloth clog that faults the water pump, (I'm getting good at that one), but now I have a ''''SL''...


SUDS LOCK:
The motor controller senses a suds lock condition by analyzing the current draw on the drive
motor. If a potential suds lock is detected, the control tries up to 3 times to clean out the unit
with a mini-cycle. See Use and Care Guide for more information.
“SL” is displayed if suds are detected but the unit is unable to clean out suds. This may
indicate a bad pump, an extra heavy load, excessive detergent or excessive suds.
Press STOP/CANCEL to clear the display. MANUAL

''LD'' error


Hi there,
“LD” stands for “long drain,” meaning it took an excessively long time for water to drain out of the washer. Common causes for this are kinked drain hose or clothing, like panties or socks, caught in the pump suction hose. Why, I’ve even heard of bra wires coming loose and getting stuck in that hose, collecting all sorts of gookus and pinching off the flow of water to the pump. Can you imagine? Yea verily, as surely as the Sacred Suds doth eternally pass my lips, the “LD” error code springs forth from such anomalies.

Clothes washer won't drain - digital display shows LD


looking at the tech sheet for this, it appears to be a standard whirlpool top load but with electronic controls, correct? normalling with this type a lid switch is the issue but the electronics would have a different code for this, LD is Long Drain for this model. suspect a transmission but this should help you troubleshoot. go to www.servicematters.com and click technical reference - tech library - tech sheets, enter model minus 110.prefix. this will show tech sheet with diagnostics. this book can also be found inside your console.
