Question about Whirlpool Calypso GVW9959K Top Load Washer
My washer is 4 years. Haven't had any problems with it so far. It will try to start washing and then after a few minutes it will give me a LD message and not do anything after that.
The LD message stands for "Long Drain". Two possibilities could be causing this problem. The pump could be bad, or you could have a clog in the sump. Pull the unit out, tilt it back, and remove the bottom panel. You need to find out if its draining at all, or none at all. If its just a trickle, you probably have a clogged drain sump. Bra underwires have a habit of collecting in that sump, then lint and everything else grabs on to it, and bingo, you have a clog. Problem is, to clear the sump, you pretty much have to strip the unit down to the tub. Not a very easy job, and usually need a special spanner wrench to remove the nut on top of the u-joint. Let me know how it turns out, and if you need further information. Be sure to check your drain hose for kinks or clogs as well. Good Luck!!!!! Jim
