Question about Washing Machines
I've been reading about LD errors all day - and so I started taking apart my washing machine - but I can't figure out how to get the basket out. I removed the cap where the laundry softener goes - and I popped out the cap that was below that. Now what???
My husband will be home in 4 hours and he's going to kill me if I have a gutted washer on the floor!!1
LD means long drain. First check to make sure that there is nothing stuck inside your drain hose. The next thing to check is your pump. lean the washer back and locate the pump. Next take it loose and clean out any debrit inside it. That should take care of it. If not check your lid switch.

Hello & Welcome to FixYa
Ld means long drain and is displayed when it takes longer than 5
minutes to pump out the water to a point where the pressure switch resets. To
solve this problem make sure that the drain filter pump assembly located inside
the bottom front panel is clean and after cleaning if the error returns then
the pressure switch needs to be tested and if bad then it needs replacement.
Please get back to me if you have any other questions.

error indicates long drain time which means that there is either something
stuck/clogged in the pump or the pump itself has gone bad and should be
replaced. You can take it apart completely and check for impeller damage or
clogs. You have to clean it completely so make sure that you have lot of towels
ready as there will be water coming out of it when you clean the pump. Hope this helps...please post
back for further assistance.
