I continue showing a LD and the water does not come out, all my clothes are soaking wet. I wash again to see if it works, I did even empty out the machine and let it run by itself but it does not work. Please tell me what to do!!??? Help!!!???@@@
I would appreciate your prompt help, I have been having this problem for the past weeks! Thanks! Mercy
OLD FIXER is right on!!! Only an idiot like me didn't anticipate the amount of water that would flow out when you disconnect the hoses from the pump!! I had scooped out as much as I could see and yet there were SEVERAL gallons left in the washer. Not quite sure how I will do it if there is a next time but there has got to be a way to capture that water without the FLOOD I had.

You might have a restriction in the outlet hose. Worse, you might have a bad pump.
It is easy to check for the constriction. Pour water into the tub, set the timer for the spin cycle and watch how strong/fast the water leaves the hose. Check for water beneath the tub.
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.
the fill valve is an electric magnet valve and sounds like it is stuck unplug machine disconnect water lines plug in and when u turn on does it click, if yes then unplug try to slide a long qtip in and if it goes in replace valve
Kenmore Elite Top load washer machine. Error "OL" does not spin fast enough. Clothes are still very wet. I have checked the machine is sitting on even surface and well balanced from all sides. Any idea(s) ???
sounds as if you have a drain issue, most common cause of fault is theres something stuck in the pump housing. remove the lower acess panel(3 screws along the bottom of the forn of unit) youll gain acess to the pump housing, remove the large cover to the "button trap" by uncscrewimg the cover, it will be righthin front of you in the center of machine when cover removed, im sure youll find your blockage within there
hello......... “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.
calyso is a low water use machine similar to front loads only enough water enters machine to get clothes soaking wet water is recirculated through tube on back right corner of tub to insure clothes are soaked if pressure switch determines minum water level not reached it will add more
