Calypso washer won't drain


It sounds like you may have something stuck in the pump...try and locate the pump(normaly at the bottom of machine)and unscrew the cover...be aware that the machine may still have water in it....once you unscrew the cover,have a look and a feel inside...there may be a coin or other object stoppint the pump from turning...remove any foreighn object...replace the screw on cover and try to drain the water again....this should solve your problem.

My washer stopped and flashed Ld. I took out the


Hi


Thanks for using FixYa. 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. Press STOP/CANCEL to clear the display. Common causes for this are kinked drain hose or clothing, like panties or socks, caught in the pump suction hose.


Please do rate the solution and revert for further assistance.


Thanks

My washer has an error code ld and it wont start or turn off i have to unplug it to turn it off now its stuck on on how do i fix it


"ld" stands for long drain. check the water pump for any obstructed items like coins, hair pins or clothing. the water pump is located in the bottom of machine in right back of stator. remove hoses and clean. also check the air dome located in bottom of basket.

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.

Displays ld


Hi, how are ya?

Hello, LD stands for long drain.
If all the water isn't out of the unit within a certain time, the ld will flash.
Could be 2 things.

1) There's lint stuck in the pump preventing the water to drain properly or

2) You're using too much soap causing lots of suds also preventing the pump from draining properly. If this is the case, what you need to do is run the washer on full load with no detergent and clothes. Let it go thru the cycle and get rid of eccess suds. This is most likely your problem.

Thanks for using Fixya
