Slow leak under unit cannot find problem. what specific should i look for?


It is most likely a hose connection from the pump to drain. What you could do is fill up the washer with cold water and color the water with food coloring let the washer rn thru a cycle. on its completion of the wash cycle and after it drains do not let it fill back up. Turn the water supply taps off and til the washer over on its front. With a tissue,(white), find the spot arond the connections where the color has dripped from. Repair that conection and with the washer back uprite run thru a complete cycle to test for leaks as well to purge the color out of the system. You either must do the later or run like h--l if the wife gets that color on her clothes. lol

I have a kenmore elite top load washing machine. It keeps giving a code of ld. Ceral number is SM 9711024


Hello, LD stands for long drain.
If all the water isn't out of the unit within a certain time, the ld will flash.
Could be 2 things.

1) There's lint stuck in the pump preventing the water to drain properly or

2) You're using too much soap causing lots of suds also preventing the pump from draining properly. If this is the case, what you need to do is run the washer on full load with no detergent and clothes. Let it go thru the cycle and get rid of eccess suds. This is most likely your problem.

Best of luck :)

Water still in bottom of tub after drain/spin cycle


I removed the drain hose from the bottom left rear corner of the washer & cleaned a large amount of gooey sludge from the bottom of the drain inside the washing machine.

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, click on the following link for step-by-step instructions

If the above procedures do not correct the problem, it is recommended by the manufacturer to replace the drain pump.

You most likely have a broken coupler between the motor and gearcase.
You can buy the part for about $10 or have someone come out and replace it for about $150-200.
If you will post the complete model number from the the washer so I can see which style cabinet you have, I will try to walk you through the repair. It isn't very complicated if you are handy with home repairs.
With the age of the machine it probably just needs a coupler, but it could also have a problem in the transmission or basket drive that has caused the failure.
