What can I do with a ld error code? Looked at drain pipe and it is not clogged, but the tub is filled with water. Please advise.
Answer Hello RK. Based on the information you provided, it sounds like you need to order and replace the drain pump and motor assembly 285990 on the unit.
The washer continues to come with an OB code. This code appears even when I run it through the cycle empty. I am asssuming it is the pump but would like to confirm this is possible when I know it is not out of balance and before ordering the repair pump.
Answer Hello Chris. If the unit is draining properly, then the pump should be fine. If it is spinning before the water drains out, you will need to replace the pump 285990. You will want to check the shock and suspension rods and make sure they are good, and the unit is not getting off balance. Hope this helps.
I have an FL code. I have learned that this is a flood control code. It also said that if you remove clothes it should recycle and start working. Not happening. I cut power and plugged back in cause that is suppose to reset. didnt happen. Just keeps beeping and flashing FL. I pulled the front cover off and the pump motor is warm and huming. is it bad???
Answer Les, You're on the right track, Check the drain pump for a clogged/stuck article, or replace it. " With an overfill condition, the beeper repeats a warning every 10 seconds with no time out. The pump is cycled in drain mode for 30 seconds on, 30 seconds off until the overfill switch resets or power is discontinued to the unit." The humming noise, should be the drain pump attempting to drain. 285990 Thanks and Good Luck
To replace the pump don't you have to access from the front? I thought the from was easy to remove but did not want to damage it?
Answer Ed, its a bit more involved : Removing the Pump and Pump Motor .
1. Disconnect power from the washing machine. 2. Carefully lay the washer on its back. 3. Remove the bottom panel secured to the
washer frame. 4. Disconnect the pump motor wiring harness from the connector block attached to the front bottom frame rail.
4. Remove the two (2) clips securing the pump to the pump motor. 5. Remove the three (3) bolts securing the pump motor to the base plate. The start capacitor for the pump motor is attached to the pump motor housing. Thanks and Good Luck.
Washer will not complete cycle, with about 6 minutes left it stops and code LD appears. Drain hose is clear, no water in tub,
Answer Hello Ed. Test and see if there is power coming to the drain pump assembly 285990. If so, and the unit is not pumping the water out properly, you will need to replace the drain pump. You can test this with a multi-meter TJMA-DMT3. Here is a link on how to use a multi-meter.
