Ld IS AN ERROR CODE FOR LONG DRAIN. The computer thinks it is taking to long to drain.These units are famous for getting small clothing items sucked up under the wash basket. The only sure fix itto remove the wash tub and remove the obstructions keeping it from draining properly,and start using a mesh bag for smaller items..To remove basket use a stiff putty knife to open the top about 1and 1/2 inches in on each side of the top push in on clips .Remove tub top cover ,just clips on outer tub. pry loose center cap in center of wash plate remove bolt holding wash plate pull out wash plate..then just pull up on wash basket nothing holding it ( its designed to float) the remove whatever is under the basket ,sounds like a lot of work but its really not i have done it a hundred times,,,GOOD LUCK

LD is showing.Does not do the washing.When started, it stops and LD shows and just keeps on beeping.

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. Press STOP/CANCEL to clear the display.

Whirlpool Calipso model clothes washer shows a LD and doesnt run

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.,wkktswgwqtqrbwfxgtqsskgwtqkq,vi/gftrgbbtfxfffgqskfk/1/1303472/5961857/image48348img-or.jpg

Kenmore (Calypso) Elite Washing machine shows LD and LF!

LD means long drain and according to the manual your drain hose could be clogged or kinked.
LF means long fill. check your water hoses and the screens to make sure they are not clogged. Had that happen to me once and i had to change the hoses. several months later same thing happened and it was the motor pump part # 8054968, this you can fix yourself.

Wont drain says Ld

I was having the same issues, I replaced the motor/pump, cost about $145.00 and replaced it myself, A repairman will charge up to an extra $100.00 for an hour of work. I ran a load of towels and it ran great and sounded quite. Woohoo im the hero, not!! the very next load the error "LD" came back at the 7 min remaining mark. so i pulled out all the wet clothes and ran a quick wash and watched the progress,the washer was draining but again at the 7 minute mark, it seemed the washer was struggling and not spinning. At this point im thinking i have to replace the spin motor and belts. But i kept getting the "LD" code which does'nt add up. So i crawled behind the washing machine again, took the back off, this time i disconnected the Long drain. I found the best way to get rid of the water in the tank is to unhook the long drain from the back of the frame, there are two(2) white clips on the inside and one(1) black "C" clip on the hose on the back where hose comes out. I used our carpet cleaner, lowered the hose till water started coming out and poured water straight into the hose for the cleaner. Im sure a shop vac will work as well. If you don't have a cleaner or shop vac, just use a large cup you'll get most of the water out, keep a towel handy for some clean-up. After the water level was below hose level in tank, i took the hose off, (you'll need pliers to squeeze the clamp from hose). There it was, my problem, not one(1) but two(2) bra wires stuck in the drain port, causing the float valve ball to be jammed and sending the message to the machine brain to shut down due to a blockage at the drain. Duh hench the code "LD". Somehow the bra wires made there way over the wash plate through the quarter size holes on bottom of wash basin and thorough the tank to the drain port. After reassembling the drain hose and washing machine, my wife has completed several loads of laundry and im on the hero status again. I sure hope this fix will help you get on the hero status and save you $145.00 or more.

Dishwasher LD-14AW2, stopped working mid cycle

Since water doesn't drain out ,it could be a clogged in the drain line. Often the problem is at the point where the drain line attaches to the garbage disposer or household drain line. You should remove this line and clear it form any debris in the hose or the hose connection. Be sure to reattach the hose before starting the dishwasher again. Good luck!
