I think your filter or drain pump is plugged.
pull out your filter ( keep a lot of towels handy) in front of your machine and clean the filter. Look if you can find the obstruction in your pump through the filter opening otherwise you will have to dismantel the pump.
This should work

    We are having the same problem. Where is the filter? How do we access it to clean it?

Gets to 8 minutes but wont go into spin cycle code ld comes up


  1. ld means long drain. If it takes too long to drain it won't go into spin or other cycles. It's possible that you have a blockage in your drain hose or pump, or your pump has gone out. Remove pump and check for any blockages. Replace your Drain pump if it is found to be bad.
  2. Also, some washing machines have a pressure sensor that can fail causing the ld code to come up.
  3. Last but not least, if the drain pump was replaced, and hoses were unclogged, and you still have the same problem, your control board may have failed.

During the wash cycle, the washer started beeping and I found a code "LD" on the dial. What is the problem


Here is what the manufacture says about LD -- my comments will follow

Long Drain
Ld flashes when the water level does not
change after the drain pump is on.
ô Is the drain hose or the drain pump clogged?
ô Is the drain hose height greater than 96"?
ô Is the pressure hose connection from the tub
to the machine/motor control pinched,
kinked, plugged or leaking air?

Phil's comments ---->

Almost always this code is due to a plugged drain pump or hose, it is especially common when washing a rug with a rubber backing that comes off or small articles like baby socks that get caught in the drain system of the machine. Depending on how adventurous you feel in taking this unit apart is your call, but due to the complexity of it I would recommend calling a service expert.

Just one guys opinion..

What does LD mean?


It isn't whether the water drained out, it is how quickly the water drained out. Common causes of the LD or long drain fault code are a kinked drain hose or some article of clothing being caught in the pump suction hose and increasing the time that it takes for the water to drain. It has to do with the cycle timer. I would look for some sort of obstruction. Also check the pump impeller for broken/missing blades and that it spins freely. If not, the pump is defective. Hopefully it is just a clogged drain line or pump. Hope this helped and 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.
