Question about Kenmore 20172 Top Load Washer
Error code LD on washer. What does this mean?
Your water pump may be Blocked
Posted on Jul 18, 2008
LD is an error code for 'Long Drain'. The water pump may be clogged, there may be a clog under the washplate where the water exits the tub or a clog at the check valve. The best place to start is the water pump.

op is probably ob, off balance, the ld is long discharge, most likely the pump is bad or full of junk, the origional pumps were updated to a better design so as not to get stopped up.

I recently had the same problem. I actually took the two hoses off of the pump and found a penny in their. It was actually difficult, I couldn't figure out an easy way to get the water out first and had quite a mess. But now the washer works again.

LD means long drain and will require a pump replacement. The new pump is totally different from the old one so unless you are very crafty and good at figuring out puzzles, you may need to have a service company come out. I don't know what the other code means but most of the time the pump is the major problem with these units.

LD means a long drain
it is taking longer than 8 minutes to drain out the tub
please check the following
First unplug the machine to prevent electrical shock·
Check wiring harness to ensure they are all connected and are not fried
·If needed remove the side panel and Check the hoses going to pump for clogs and all drain hoses and drainage system
· Check circuit board that controls the pump to see if any wires are burnt or have failed
once the faulty part or the clog has been cleared simply plug in the machine and press the cancel button and resume your normal washing operation
Hope this has been very helpful for you
Best regards Michael

Thanks for using FixYa. 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 rate the solution if the issue is resolved or post a comment for further assistance.
