LD = Long Drain...  "Ld" flashes if it takes longer than 5 minutes to pump out water to a point where the operating pressure switch resets.  could be a bad pressure switch, the pressure hose, the water pump..  those are good places to start.

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.

Parts and diagrams available here.

Whirlpool Gold refrigerator water leaking


If it's flooding, it's NOT the drain pan. It's probably the water valve has gotten stuck in the open position. Hope this helps!

''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.

LD is on my display-nothing will clear it and washer doesnt drain


the ld code means a long drain, what you probably have is something blocking the drain pump.
you can get to the drain pump from the back of the unit and it will be the pump on the left as you face the back.
you will need to remove the hose going into the pump and be ready for water to come out. sorry but you need to check inside the hose as there will be something blocking it. like a coin or some lint or a small sock.
when you get the item out of the hose then it should work again. you do not need to reset the control. once it knows the unit is draining properly it will be ok.

Whirlpool gold catalyst washer error code FF


FF on the catalyst models means the following. Let me know if you need more info or would like a link to where you can obtain a service manual for your washer.
If the transducer signals a high or a low water level for more than 16
seconds the washer will shut off and FF will flash.
• Press the RINSE OPTIONS button and select DRAIN/SPIN to drain
washer.
• Check the water level transducer hose and wire connections.
• Also check the pressure dome hose to be sure they are properly
connected.
• Check the water level transducer, see TEST #7.
