The ld fault is a long drain error. Check your drain pump reservoir and drain hoses for clogs. Removing the agitator in my opinion would be unnecessary. Unplug your machine and remove the back panel. There should be a drain pump reservoir at the bottom under the wash basin. They are notorious for collecting lint and hair and can obstruct the drain flow. You can also squeeze along the drain lines and feel for obstructions. To access the drain pump itself, its easier to remove the front panel. You will need to release the two metal hold down clips located under the front lip approx. two inches from either side. You need a putty knife to push in on the clips and lift on the top front at the same time. Once you have the top released, lift up and remove two screws holding the front panel. The front panel should pull away leaving an open access to the inside cabinet. The drain pump is located on the lower right-hand side of the wash tub at the very bottom of the unit. You can easily remove the two drain lines at the pump and check for obstructions there as well. Again, unplug the unit before servicing the pump. I hope this helps.

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.

Kenmore Calypso washer Ld code?

I just had the same problem. I borrowed my neighbors wet vac. The hose of the wet vac fit right over the end of the drain hose and I sucked out all the remaining water. My hope was that if the hose was clogged that it would clear it out. It seems that it worked. I put the drain hose back in the drain and turned on the extended spin cycle. It was working, so I put the water logged clothes back in the washer on the extended spin cycle and it took the water out. I am now in the process of washing another load to see if it really fixed the problem. I hope this helps.

Calypso top washer has an error of LD

LD is an error code indicating a “long drain”. If the water is not pumped out quick enough, you will get this error code. This model of washer has a revised pump/motor assembly that will improve the performance of pumping the water out. A poor pump out condition could also be caused by a failure of the drain check ball system. This is a chamber of the outer tub located on the lower rear section of the outer tub. If something gets lodged in the inlet or outlet port of the check ball chamber, you will have either a no drain condition or a poor drain condition. This would have to be checked to confirm.

What does ld mean on my washer?

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.
