Kenmore Washer LD Signal

9 posts in this topic

I have a Kenmore Washer Model 110.24082200.  I have bailed the water from the tub, just like a leaky fishing boat.  I now need to find out the cause of the LD error code.  There is no kinking of the hose.  What steps do I need to take to determine if something is clogged inside or the pump needs to be replaced.  Are these things I can do myself or do I need to get a repair person in here?  Manual machines where so much easier. 

I have tipped the machine on edge to assist in the bailing.  Help me oh teahcer to find them way and answers also.

Some things to check...

When you try to pump out, any "pump-like" noises? What do you hear/see/smell? Remobe the pump from the motor (two clips) - can the pump be turned by hand using a flat blade screwdriver? These had a problem with the pumps seizing up when they first came out, I changed a lot of them under warranty.

I understand the pump is no longer a repair part, comes as a kit with the motor - anyone confirm?

You are so far beyond me.  I need to know how to even get to the pump.  Where do I open the machine.  Turn on side?  Turn on Front and take off back?  Does this sound like I need a repair person?

Also.  There is no pump activity.  nada zip zilch. Don't smell anything.

Decided to call repairman.  He came and told me I had to call Sears cuz he couldn't do diagnostics to determine if its the pump or computer chips.  Sears says a week to come out.  This is BS.  They can't give out diagnostic codes cuz only Sears Tech have them.  If I can determine if its the pump or computer, I could short change Sears out of the picture.  I can tell you I will never ever buy a sears product based upon this level of customer dis-service.  Any primer on the diagnostics out there?

have worked on oodles of these "things" and have yet to see a board cause a long drain code,usually pump is blocked,or a penny or something gets through the pump and lodges in the check valve that has been instered in the end of the drain hose that connects to washer. this valve is nothing more than a rubber insert that sorta looks like puckered lips at one end.since i got fooled by that,i have been removing these as i find they are just another source of restriction,and cannot see any valid use for them other than to quiet draining function-i like to hear the machine drain,especially after having an ld code.  for the record,the new pump/motor ass'y is an improvement,also comes with a handy netted laundry bag for the user to wash scanties in so they don't make it "overboard".
