SOURCE: LD is on my display-nothing will clear it and washer doesnt drain

the ld code means a long drain, what you probably have is something blocking the drain pump.
you can get to the drain pump from the back of the unit and it will be the pump on the left as you face the back.
you will need to remove the hose going into the pump and be ready for water to come out. sorry but you need to check inside the hose as there will be something blocking it. like a coin or some lint or a small sock.
when you get the item out of the hose then it should work again. you do not need to reset the control. once it knows the unit is draining properly it will be ok.

SOURCE: keep getting LD error code on whirlpool cabrio washer

Is there water in the bottom of the tub? If yes then open back of washer and remove drain pump (on left side) and pull off of tub and clear whatever is blocking its impeller.
If the water is all gone and drained but pump stays on for several minutes and then gives "LD" fault then open back and check the small clear tube that is attached to the tub. Make sure is not blocked with debris and check tube and tub for anything that could block the small clear tube. If these are ok then remove 3 screws in back of the control panel, pull open control panel and check the clear tub all the way up from the tub to the washer controller board (computer) make sure it is not kinked or disconnected. If not then the problem is most likely the pressure sensor on the (computer). This unit will have to be replaced.
You can test the sensor by doing the following: 1. When the "LD" fault comes on start by pressing the pause button. then pull the clear tube off of the computer board. Then attach a tight fitting drinking straw over the sensor. Press the start button and wait for 60 seconds - If the washer does not start the spin cycle on its own after the 60 seconds then **** on the drinking straw that you attached to the pressure sensor earlier. The sucking action should reset the sensor thus telling the computer that the water is drained and it will start the spin cycle. Just remember if you have to do this to get the washer to spin - that means the sensor is damaged most likely from moisture traveling up the tube over time. The computer board will need to be replaced. I believe it costs $205 without shipping. Hope this helps.

SOURCE: whirlpool cabrio giving error message LD-what is wrong

Long drain error can be caused by something plugging the drain hose or a kink. Tale it off th drain while it is pumping out and check for a good flow. If the hose is ok the pump may have an obstruction causing low flow and it will have to be cleaned out.

SOURCE: Washer will not spin after draining.

the long drain code means that either the pump is bad or there is an obstruction to the water flow.  check the hose going to the washtub and also check for obstructions in the hoses at the pump itself.  if clear the pump is probably bad.

My whirlpool front loader cabrio stopped working with 12 minutes left in the cycle. The Ld code is flashing and I don't know how to fix it so that the load will spin and drain. How do I fix this...


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.

Water is leaking from my washing machine when I am washing clothes and I keep getting the LD error code and UL but it is not unbalanced.


Grab hold of the inner basket & pull up & down. Does it move up & down? If not clothing is stuck between the inner & outer basket. Tilt the unit back & use a flash light & shine it through the clear plastic & see if you see clothes in it.

Calypso washer - LD Code - clothes still wet


harborstuff,
The code on your machine stands for 'Long Drain'. Ld flashes if it takes longer than 5 minutes to pump out water to a point where the operating pressure switch resets. I would bet that the bath mats left a bunch of stuff stuck in the recirculation pump hose, or pump itself, and the water cannot be drained fast enough. Check the intake and exit hoses of the recirc pump. It's easiest to get to the pump through the front panel of the machine(click here). Looks like this: click here. Hope this helps.
(Definitely get under there and check to make sure the pump hoses are not clogged. At $129 it's an expensive fix for a $10 bath mat that clogged up the hose with fuzz. 'know what I'm sayin'' :o) )

-samson39

BTW, I have the maintenance manual & have experience at replacing the recirc. pump, control board, motor board, touchpad, & lid switch so far.

LD Error Code


We had the same problem on and off for 6 months before I called for service. My machine is also about 3 years old. Yours is probably a low water use machine. We also pulled the back off and cleaned the hoses. Also unplugged it hoping to clear the code. We could get it to reset but it would screw up again next time. Got sick of having to haul soaking wet clothes to the neighbors to rince and spin. This sounds stupid but have you tried using an "HE" detergent? They are low sudsing. Tide and Gain and several others make it. Also comes in powder and liquid. Sometimes hard to find, These HE are made for the newer low water use washers. I was stunned when the repairman told me this was my problem. I have not had a problem since I bought this type of soap> Make sure it says "HE" on the container. The salesman, nor the owners manual mentioned this. Good Luck
