Retrieve filter drain hose from inside washing machine
this is front load? take the top panel off, keep the computer attatched. the door and front panel should come off. then when you get inside of the washer, underneath the drum there will be a rubber gasket from the pump to the tank. Connected to the hose into the drum. take that cover off and clean it out. I found socks, and lint, and money. I had a frigidare front loader, and nothing was coming clean, even when i did a system deep clean on the machine options. There are plenty of you tube videos that show you how to get in there. This was a few years back and i will tell you it was a fight to do without any help from the boyfriend at the time. but i fixed it and didnt have to buy a new washer or parts. I hope this is the problem with yours and you dont have to put any money into it. and sorry if this isnt helpful, good luck!
My maytag washer bravos quiet series 300 stopped in the middle of a clean washer cycle with the message LD in the time area. Now it is beeping and won't stop. 26 minutes were li
LD generally means a long drain. This can be caused by debris in the pump or a damaged pump motor or impeller. You'll need to unplug the washer, secure the lid with duct tape. Slide the washer forward and remove the inlet hoses. For the Bravos line, you need to tip the washer forward. Let the front of the machine rest on the floor. Now you can access the internal hoses that connect the drain pump and re-circulation pump to the washer tub. Separate the hoses from the pumps and check inside them for debris. Note: have a bucket and towels ready to catch the water that may be in the hose, wash tub or the pumps. Also check the discharge hoses that go up the side of the washer from these pumps. Disconnect the wiring harness and remove the screws that hold the pumps in place. Check the inlets of the pumps for debris. You can use needle-nose pliers to reach some items. Reconnect the pumps and those hoses and tilt the washer back up. Connect the water lines and plug in the washer. Check if the error recurs.
Listen to the washer and see if it tries to pump any water. If needed, replace the pump motor or other drain system parts. This is rare. Usually the washer prevents permanent damage to the drain pump system by stopping.
I hope this helps. Please add a comment with the model number for diagrams of the drain pump and hoses.
(The foreign object(s) probably got into the washer during a previous wash cycle. It shifted to block the drain pump system when the water drained during the clean washer cycle.)
