Can I please have the Full model number of the unit to better assist you ?
LD is for a long drain ,do you have standing water in the washer at this time?

And what type of detergent do you use? He or none HE?

Customer: replied 2 years ago.
MTW6600TQ is the model number. I do not have standing water at this time. I unplugged and then plugged and it drained the clothes. I then ran the calibration on it and it seemed to fix the problem. I only use HE detergent in my machine.
Expert:  Whrlp Master Tech replied 2 years ago.

when you unplugged it how long was it unplugged for ? before you plugged it back in

and how much HE detergent per load do you use?

Customer: replied 2 years ago.
It was unnplugged for about 3-5 minutes. I use Tide pods, one per load.
Expert:  Whrlp Master Tech replied 2 years ago.

ok so if it was closer to the 5 minutes that is long enough for the main control to loose it`s memory and start fresh .

Have you ever used a washer cleaner in the unit?

And do you use more cold water washes the other temperatures?

Customer: replied 2 years ago.
I have used affresh sometimes, but usually use bleach to clean. Yes I do more cold water washes than any others.
Expert:  Whrlp Master Tech replied 2 years ago.

Bleach kills mold and mildew but it does not get ride of mineral or detergent deposits left in the washer.

And make sure that you are using the cold water HE detergent when using cold water washes.

not all HE detergents are meant for cold water.

Customer: replied 2 years ago.
if this continues to happen have I followed the correct steps to fix?
Expert:  Whrlp Master Tech replied 2 years ago.

If it comes back clean the washer with Affresh twice ,and if it still comes back the replace the control board.
