This issue usually occurs due to kinked drain pipe, clogged
drain filter or drain pump. First make sure that the drain is not clogged and
remove clogs if present. If no visible lint is present then remove the lower
front access panel to check the drain filter and drain pump for any clogs,
you'll need to clean the drain filter and drain pump completely. Hope this
helps... Please post back for any further assistance. Daniel
Does it run fine other than that? If so, your issue is most likely a clogged drain line or a bad water pump. Pull the drain hose off the back of the washer (being aware that if the line is NOT plugged, any water inside the machine will now be on your leg/wall/floor/cat etc). If no water comes out, the line is plugged. Take the case off the washer and remove the water pump (on whirlpool, take off two hose clamps and just pull. your mileage may vary). You should find the clog on the upstream side. Remove the clog, reassemble the washer, and try it. If that doesn't work, your next attempt would be to replace the water pump. you already know how to do get it out, just reverse the steps with a new pump.. Did that get it?
If your washer spins but does not pump the water out,
the drain line is probably clogged. In many washers a small sock or
other piece of clothing can get between the clothes tub and the outer
tub that holds the water. If the clothing gets between the tubs, it may
then get into the drain hose that is attached to the pump or even into
the pump itself. It it's in the pump, you need to remove the hoses from
the pump and pull the item out.
To remove the item from the outer tub port, open the
washer's main access panel and remove the large diameter rubber hose
that connects the pump to the bottom of the outer tub. Using a
needle-nose pliers, try to grab and remove the stuck item through the
Hello, LD stands for long drain.
If all the water isn't out of the unit within a certain time, the ld will flash.
Could be 2 things.
1) There's lint stuck in the pump preventing the water to drain properly or
2) You're using too much soap causing lots of suds also preventing the pump from draining properly. If this is the case, what you need to do is run the washer on full load with no detergent and clothes. Let it go thru the cycle and get rid of eccess suds. This is most likely your problem.

Here we go the problem probably lies in the holding tank tub. So far found one baby sock, clumps of lint, latest underwire from daughters bra. Easy to work on machine. Will need a 2nd person for 1st part of repair. Have a small bucket ready,(I used a empty kitty litter container) 1)Disconnect electric cord, 2)Disconnect water hose's to machine. pull out drain.3)(Will need a 5/16th socket.) Pull out washer remove back panel.(2 screws) 4) Tilt back washer (towards control panel) 5) Remove bottom access panel (3 screws). 6) With a pair of plyers pull back metal clip on hose leading to pump. (this is where all water left in washer will come out.) 7) Remove clip on return hose from pump. 8) Pump is held on by 2 clips, push them back to remove pump.
Once a water is drained you should be able to see any objects in the tub area, you can also now place the washer on it's side.WATER MAY STILL COME OUT HAVE A TOWEL OR 2 READY. Check pump for damage. Remove any/all debris (Used a set of hemostats.)(Rubber balls are suppost to be in there.DON'T DAMAGE THEM.) Once everything looks to be removed. Reverse steps reattach hoses, pump, etc. before replacing access panels Use the Express Wash Option to see if all works well. If it does, reattach access panels, and start washing!!
