What does ld mean on my washer?

Whirlpool Calypso washer error messages op and ld.

    I had the LD problem and confirmed that the drain pump was
    broken. The motor would spin, but the splined steel shaft slipped in the
    plastic pump rotor (who designed that?). I ordered the new, improved motor/pump
    (twice as fast, single unit construction), but my wife wanted the washer fixed
    NOW. So as a temporary fix, I mixed up a little blob of JB Weld epoxy and
    glued the shaft into the pump. I waited overnight and then gave it the
    test. It is working fine after several loads. I guess I'll still replace it when the new pump arrives, but I wonder how long it might last if I just stuck with the glued 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.

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.

Whirlpool Calypso error code


Hi


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.


Thanks

Won't fillCalypso whirlpool washer model#GVW9959KQ1 LD on display


LD is long drain error, the machine does not fill because it is in fault mode, but error is on drain system.

If there is a drain problem, the parts that must be checked are drain hose, pressure switch, drain pump assembly, timer control.

Check if the drain hose at the back is kinked or blocked.

Test the pressure switch, blow into the small hose, and use a multimeter to check if switch has continuity.

Remove access panel and get to the drain pump hose to check for ablockage. You will need to disconnect the hose and collect the water.

Keep a container ready to collect water when you undo pump hose.

Ifall the rest is OK, test and eventually replace timer board.Problemwith water pump are far more commonly causing this problemsthenfaulty timer board.

Whirlpool washer error code problem


LD is long drain associated with two problems the drain hose install and the pump. Debris in the pump and a drain hose inserted too far will cause most of these issues.

Ld and ob error codes


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.
