Our Kenmore Elite Calypso Washer is either showing LD error or stuck in running mode without actually running. I suspect there is a clogging issue since my mother-in-law washed something that felt away during the wash it might have clogged drain. The washer is full of water. How do I fix this problem?

Well error Ld means - Long drain - The Ld error code indicates a long drain. It is displayed when water level does not change while the drain pump is running. Anyway you can please check out the following steps - Is the drain hose kinked or clogged? Check the drain pump for clogs. Is it running? Is the drain hose height greater than 95 inches? Is the pressure switch hose connection from the tub to the machine control board pinched or plugged? Do you see excessive suds in the basket? Are you using high efficiency (HE) detergent?
You can try to reset your washer by Pressing STOP/CANCEL. Please check out all the above steps, post comments if further you have the same problem.......
LD error is for long drain. The pump filter in the pump assembly is probably clogged. Remove front lower panel, pump assembly is in the front with a cap that unscrews. Once cap is unscrewed you can slide out the filter and clean. Remove as much water as possible from basket before taking off pump cap or else water will come flooding out when filter is removed. Reinstall and run drain spin cycle. Should drain ok.
looking at the tech sheet for this, it appears to be a standard whirlpool top load but with electronic controls, correct? normalling with this type a lid switch is the issue but the electronics would have a different code for this, LD is Long Drain for this model. suspect a transmission but this should help you troubleshoot. go to www.servicematters.com and click technical reference - tech library - tech sheets, enter model minus 110.prefix. this will show tech sheet with diagnostics. this book can also be found inside your console.
“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.

LD means long drain and according to the manual your drain hose could be clogged or kinked.
LF means long fill. check your water hoses and the screens to make sure they are not clogged. Had that happen to me once and i had to change the hoses. several months later same thing happened and it was the motor pump part # 8054968, this you can fix yourself.
LD is an error code for 'Long Drain'. The water pump may be clogged, there may be a clog under the washplate where the water exits the tub or a clog at the check valve. The best place to start is the water pump.
