Question about Maytag Bravos MTW6600T Top Load Washer

1 Answer

Bravos MTW6600 washer is a little over 3 years old...suddenly during a cycle it flashed LD which I understand means its taking too long to drain its water. Is it a bad user interface? Or worse, a control unit?? Or maybe something stupid???

Hi


Thanks for using FixYa. You are right, 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 accept the solution if the issue is resolved or post a comment for further assistance.


Thanks
Rylee

My maytag washer bravos quiet series 300 stopped in the middle of a clean washer cycle with the message LD in the time area. Now it is beeping and won't stop. 26 minutes were li


LD generally means a long drain. This can be caused by debris in the pump or a damaged pump motor or impeller. You'll need to unplug the washer, secure the lid with duct tape. Slide the washer forward and remove the inlet hoses. For the Bravos line, you need to tip the washer forward. Let the front of the machine rest on the floor. Now you can access the internal hoses that connect the drain pump and re-circulation pump to the washer tub. Separate the hoses from the pumps and check inside them for debris. Note: have a bucket and towels ready to catch the water that may be in the hose, wash tub or the pumps. Also check the discharge hoses that go up the side of the washer from these pumps. Disconnect the wiring harness and remove the screws that hold the pumps in place. Check the inlets of the pumps for debris. You can use needle-nose pliers to reach some items. Reconnect the pumps and those hoses and tilt the washer back up. Connect the water lines and plug in the washer. Check if the error recurs.

Listen to the washer and see if it tries to pump any water. If needed, replace the pump motor or other drain system parts. This is rare. Usually the washer prevents permanent damage to the drain pump system by stopping.

I hope this helps. Please add a comment with the model number for diagrams of the drain pump and hoses.

(The foreign object(s) probably got into the washer during a previous wash cycle. It shifted to block the drain pump system when the water drained during the clean washer cycle.)

Why is my maytag bravos mvwb750wq washer so loud on spin cycle?


Is it moving around? I am guessing not so guess would be the drum is out of balance.

Maytag bravos washer- bleach compartment wont drain during wash cycle


The solenoid that turns on to dispense the bleach is bad, or you have a clogged tube that goes from bleach dispenser to tub.

Maytag bravos washer will not complete cycles


Remove clothes from drum. Siphon out (or wet vac out) visible water in the drum. Blow into drain hose. This back flushes the system. After hearing gurgling and seeing bubbles come up thru the drum, you know its a fairly clear line. Now take your wet vac and siphon out remaining water by connecting it to the drain line using duct tape. The lights will correct themselves and your washer will now work normally. At least this is how I fixed mine without disconnecting anything or making a big mess. Good luck.

My washer keeps saying ''Ld'' It will not finish the cycle and drain. I Have tried turning it off and even unplugged it for 30 seconds. I dont know what to do!


"ld" is a service code meaning long drainage time
the most likely problem is some lint build up in pump or in the sump restricting water flow into the drain pump

Hello & Welcome to FixYa

LD error code means long drain, you can try to check the drain hose and clean it completely. Also take out the agitator and check any stuck clothes there. After this if the problem is back then replacing the pump is recommended repair. Please get back to me if you have any other questions.

My washing machine is a Maytag Bravo, My Manual is packed as were moving, I need to know what the error code LD is and how to clear it


Error code LD means Long Drain. It flashes when washer takes longer than 5 minutes to pump out water to a point where the operating pressure switch resets. Make a careful visual inspection of the hoses, and see if you notice anything under the main tub, that could be causing a blockage.
