Ld error and now washer won't function

I was doing a normal load of towels and I got the ld error at the 9 minute mark. Now I cannot get the washer to function. At most it will fill water for a bit no matter which cycle I choose.

    I'm having the same problem with my machine which is less than 1 year old...or really close. I took out half the close (was a small load already) and then ran the rinse cycle again (seemed to be the shortest cycle) and then the washer completed the spin cycle. Did the same thing to get the second half of the load done. The error code associated with ld is "taking to long for the load to drain= ld. Not sure why this is happening. Do you have any add'l info?

Yes at the 7 to 9 minute mark is where all the water should be out and the spin cycle progress to finish, sometimes water in tub causes vibration and error codes of oL and the like. Mostly with Oasis and with some front loaders the drain hose can set for a slow drain which is not detected until lint and other small particles start clogging the pump and sometimes the drain. I first check the drain hose to make sure I hear water gurgling as it drains ensuring no back pressure to slow drain. The second one is stuff in the pump and this machine has two pumps. Get a healthy gentleman to tilt the machine back for you so you can examine the pump on the right side. This is the drain pump and the larger of the two. Get a deep flat tray like a oil pan because were going to get wet pulling the hoses off and looking in the pump for debris. While we are here check the exterior hose going to the drain for lint build up.

hi shotgun - sometimes the mieles with auto adjustment functions do make changes to the wash time - usually based on a smart sensor technology.

Unfortunately I have no data or information for your particular model, I have info on earlier & the latest models only. In hindsight what this function does is adjust water levels based on the load weight or amount of the wash, the computer then calibrates the water levels and accordingly the amount of time to wash.

Eg - 4 kg load would be longer than say a load 1.5kg to process - if can understand this concept. However I cannot be 100% certain it applies to your particular model, if the user manual is availbel it may just pay to read thru in case it applies to the washer.

Why do i get a "ld' signal or a "co" message?


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
I don't see an CO error. Here is a complete service manual for your washer. I am sure it will come in handy in the future. Look on page 46 for a list of the error codes.

My wife got an error code of LD on our calypso washer when she did a load of towels, we pushed the cancel and it went away but now when we try to restart it the washer will not fill up with water, it puts...


The error code LD means long drain and appears if it takes more than five minutes to pump the water out of the machine. As the water level in the tub falls, the operating pressure switch should reset to allow filling for the next cycle or a new load. Check the operating pressure switch and replace it if necessary.

Below is the procedure and checking and replacing the operating pressure switch.
  1. Unplug the machine.
  2. Insert a putty knife at the front corners between the bottom of the console and the top of the washer.
  3. Push the spring clip back far enough with the putty knife to release it from the slot on the top of the washer.
  4. Tip back the console then lift it to release its rear mounting tab from the slot on the top of the washer.
  5. Lay the console facing down the top of the washer.
  6. Remove the six screws securing the rear console panel and remove the panel.
  7. Look for the two components on the right side of the console with mark OPR and FLD, respectively. The one marked OPR is the operating pressure switch (part #829864) and the other one is the overfill pressure switch (part #829865).
  8. Disconnect the wiring harness connectors from the terminals of the pressure switches.
  9. Check the continuity between the terminals of each switch using a multimeter. Resistance reading is zero if the switch is good and reads open if not.
  10. Depress the locking tab on the side of the switch and turn it 90 degrees in either direction.
  11. Pull the switch from the console mounting plate.
  12. Install the new switch and the console in reverse order of the procedure above.

I have the Kenmore elite calypso washer and it stops and displays LD. What does this maean and how do i fix it? Thanks!


“F21” (AKA SD) is a Long (SLOW) Drain error (LD). If the drain time exceeds 8 minutes this error code will be displayed. In addition, a “SUDS” error may also be displayed. This may be an indication of a drain pump problem and/or clog in the drain line. You will need to check the following:


1.First, attempt to unplug the washer for at LEAST 30 minutes to reset the Central Control Unit (CCU). Sometimes this is all that is required to correct momentary glitches with the unit. If the error code returns, proceed to step 2.
2.Check the drain hose to make sure it is not kinked or clogged.
3.Check the electrical connections to the pump and ensure the pump is running.
4.Remove the drain pump filter and check for foreign objects and/or debris.

To check the drain pump...



If you experience a problem where the washer does not drain properly or the drain pump makes excessive noise, here's the information you need to check the drain pump:

Symptom: PUMP IS RUNNING, BUT NOT DRAINING PROPERLY.

1. Unplug the washer while servicing inside the unit.
2. Remove the lower kick panel under the door by removing the three 7mm screws under the bottom edge of the panel. HINT: Use a couple of blocks of wood to prop up the front feet of the washer to gain better access to the screws. Once the screws are removed the panel should drop down, and then pull off. If the panel becomes stuck, a slight tap on either side will dislodge it.
3. Locate the drain pump. It will be located directly under the wash tub (it is the only pump this washer has).
4. There is an access removal cover on the pump that can be removed to clean out the trap. BEFORE doing this, it is strongly recommended that you remove all residual water from the wash tub & drain line or you will have about a gallon or so inside your washer and on the floor to clean up.
5. Here's a helpful way of quickly removing the residual water. If you own a wet/dry shop vac, remove the drain hose from the standpipe at the wall and pull a vacuum with the shop vac. This will empty the wash tub, pump and drain lines. If you don't own a shop vac, grab a bunch of old towels and open the access on the pump slowly so that it comes out at a trickle. Allow the towels to soak up the majority of the water. Close the access and stop the water if you need to get additional towels.
6. Open the pump access and remove once you have all the water drained. Check the drain pump for foreign objects and debris. Check the pump impeller and make sure there's nothing caught in it. Items as small as toothpicks or cotton swabs have been known to stop this pump from working.
7. Clean out the pump thoroughly and reinstall the access cover. Make sure the cover is snug, but do not over tighten.
8. Place the drain hose back in the standpipe (IMPORTANT - DO NOT FORGET!).
9. With the bottom panel still off, plug the washer back in and select the following on the operator console - DRAIN SPIN, NO SPIN, and then press any button under OPTIONS 4 times (it must be the same button). "C00" will show on the console display as the washer begins diagnostics mode.
10. Check the drain pump for leaks as the washer fills. The pump is gravity filled and will hold water even it is not pumping. Allow washer to run through diagnostics until it begins the wash tub tumble cycle.
11. At this point, you can stop the diagnostics procedure by pressing PAUSE/CANCEL 2 times. The drain pump energizes and the washer will begin to drain.
12. If the drain pump works normal and there are no leaks detected, reinstall the bottom panel and tighten screws.


NOTE: It is normal to have residual water left inside the wash tub under the wash basket. This is why it is important to leave the door ajar when not in use so this water does not become sour.
