Kenmore oasis he, ld flashing at 8min.

    Does ld flashing code stand for LID or LONG DRAIN? I've been told both...My machine works fine until the last 8 mins, then ld starts flashing, and it will not go into the final spin.

    My kenmore oasis he washer startes flashing LD at 20 minutes. The clothes are soaked and it will not go into the final spin. Every button I push seems to start the wash cycle over.

    Mine started doing this exact same thing tonight. I cannot get it to do anything! I unplugged it finally and plugged it back in. Tried to just start the whole cycle over and it acted like it wasn't ever going to stop filling, so I shut it off... by unplugging it again! Help please!!

    Ld is NOT lid. Ld is "the machine is taking too long to drain". It says to check for a kinked or blocked drainage hose...

We have had the LD light come on when the water pump is blocked. This has happened twice in the last 4 months (11 month old washer). Water has remained in the tub in these scenarios. According to the repair men, the first time it was a small pebble and the second time it was a bathing suit top that plugged the water pump. Not sure how a pebble and bathing suit top is getting any where close to the water pump. We are not jamming too many clothes in the washer either. We fill it to the point where we still see a little metal from the tub (blow the plastic rim). From what I can tell, there seems to be a design problem with this machine.. By the way, we had water spilling out from the bottom rear of the machine over the weekend. The repair man said a hose popped off. My advice to buy the warranty and stay close to the machine when it is washing....

Sounds like a bad lid switch. Many times you can test these by using a small jumper wire to connect the two wires on the switch it's self.

How do I unclog the long drain Kenmore elite oasis?

Honestly, we got rid of the machine and bought a Maytag Neptune. I was over trying to figure out all the codes the Oasis was flashing. We gave up on the first one that started having problems when a friend gave us one identical to ours and it has done a lot of the same things.

The LD means Long drain time...that error code coupled with the hum i believe something is stuck in the drain pump preventing it from turning and that is why its humming

My washer stops in the middle of the cycle what does this mean Flashes LD Error


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. Please do rate the solution if the issue is resolved or post a comment for further assistance.

Kenmore oasis won't completely drain and flashes "LD"

Does the pump keep running and then shut off first if so you can try this .It is not the proper way but sometimes you have to wait for the machine to go into the spin drain cycle and tilt it gently a few times like an old pinball machine. I sometimes have to do that. but I want you to know it is not the best for the machine you could break something else while doing this

Error Code LD flashes

Today (4/3/09) I got a letter from Sears. They will replace the electronic control board (you know, the F-51 business) for FREE, in warranty or not. Serial #s for the Bad Board are: CS48 - CS52 or CT01-CT49. Call Sears at 800-847-9083. The voices of all of us have finally been heard!
