From what you are describing it sounds like either the motor is dragging down due to friction or the control board is falsely sensing an overloaded condition. I recommend making a visual inspection by looking under the washer to see if something is obstructing the motor movement, also check between the tub cover & the top of the spin basket. Make sure the basket will move freely up and down too.

The F1 fault code on this washer indicates that the water level pressure transducer signal is out of range. This can be caused by the pressure transducer air hose tubing being pinched or crimped. A failed pressure transducer on the machine control board can also cause it.

I have a front loader washer Kenmore Elite Model #796.40311900 that spins SLOW, not FAST as it should on spin. The digital readout works normally.

sounds like maybe drain filter is plugged and unit is not draining fast enough. if you have drain access in front pull it out and clean it.

Ld code. It won't drain. Not the drain pump (I changed) and not clogged pipe.

Slow drain code. How high is the outlet pipe ABOVE the machine?

Heard a beeping warning half way through cycle. Went in and Ld was message flashing. Tried to stop and restart, then machine started making buzzing noise. Cannot get machine to do anythind but lock lid...

Hello & Welcome to FixYa

Ld means long drain and is displayed when it takes longer than 5 minutes to pump out the water to a point where the pressure switch resets. To solve this problem make sure that the drain filter pump assembly located inside the bottom front panel is clean and after cleaning if the error returns then the pressure switch needs to be tested and if bad then it needs replacement. Please get back to me if you have any other questions.

Kenmore Oasis Washer won't drain. "Ld" code during


Error code LD means long drain. This error appears when the washer takes more than 5 minutes to pump out the water till point where pressure switch resets. To resolve the issue you'll need to clean the drain hose, inspect if the drain hose is plugged. If the hose is fine, then remove the front kick panel and access the drain pump and filter, if you are unable to find the pump and filter remove the back panel as well and trace the drain hose to the bottom of the tub. There is a drain filter connected with the drain pump. It usually gets clogged, and needs to be cleaned every 6-8 months or so. The drain filter is a small white filter connected to drain pump with a hose. If it still doesn't work then you'll need to check the connections of the drain pump, check the electrical connections with a multimeter. Hope this helps... Please post back for more information.

SD code and washer leaking

Sd excessive suds are detected by the washer during the drain or spin phases of the cycle.
The washer will stop and fill with water and then wait for 5 minutes to allow the suds eliminated so that the washer cycle can continue, After the suds dissipate, you can normally drain the washer and spin out the clothes using a RINSE/DRAIN & SPIN cycle. Make sure that you are using HE (High Efficiency) detergent in the appropriate amounts to prevent excessive suds in the washer. This should prevent the washer from going into this routine.
  1. Also check your drain hose for a kink or clog. Check the washer house drain for a clog or restriction. Test the washer to see if it will drain properly.
you can clean with affresh or vingar..let me know..

Ld error and now washer won't function

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.
