Oh great consumer of beer! We have had a Whirlpool Calypso for going on three years now 110.21082000. My wife is most perplexed at this digitally impressive/laundry challenged piece of machinery. We are getting the “ld” error.

Forgive me, I am a “handy” challenged bean counter. The repair man is scheduled for this weekend :Oo

The drain hose is not kinked and I have removed the rear manifold. I am afraid to take the drain hose off at the unit itself for fear of flooding the laundry room.

What to do? Aside from grabbing a beer and contributing to your suds fund if you can get me out of this sand trap!!!

After swilling copious quantities of the sacred fermented grain beverage, I looked up the “LD” code in the Whirlpool Calypso service manual. “LD” stands for “long drain,” meaning it took an excessively long time for water to drain out of the washer. Common causes for this are kinked drain hose or clothing, like panties or socks, caught in the pump suction hose. Why, I’ve even heard of bra wires coming loose and getting stuck in that hose, collecting all sorts of gookus and pinching off the flow of water to the pump. Can you imagine? Yea verily, as surely as the Sacred Suds doth eternally pass my lips, the “LD” error code springs forth from such anomalies. Can I hear an Amen?
