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

    I can't emphasize enough, remove all drain hoses and check for obstructions. The final black, long drain hose has a limiter inside of it! The limiter looks like a duck's bill. If it is clogged, use a coathanger to hook it and pull it out. Then, clean and replace.

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.

The fault code "LD" indicates "long drain" condition. It's not only if the water drained, but how fast it drained. Check the drain line for kinks or obstructions. Check the pump. Remove the hoses and use a flashlight to look into the suction port. Make sure nothing is clogging the pump (like the occasional stray sock) and check the pump impeller. Make sure there are no broken/missing blades and that the impeller spins freely. If there are broken/missing blades or if you can't get the impeller to spin freely, the pump is defective. Hopefully it's just a clogged drain line, pump, or a jammed impeller. Sorry for your trouble and I hope this helped. Best wishes.

''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.

Whirlpool washer error code problem


LD is long drain associated with two problems the drain hose install and the pump. Debris in the pump and a drain hose inserted too far will cause most of these issues.
