"Ld" indicates Long Drain: Ld flashes when the water level does not change after the drain pump is on.
depends on the following factors:
1-> the drain pipe could be longer than 8 feet
2-> the drain hose could clogged or kinked
3-> the pressure hose connection from the tub to the machine motor control could be pinched or plugged?
4-> and finally the pump might not be running well.

If you need any sort of help with the disassembling of machine tell me the exact model number and i can provide with some internal diagrams.Good luck with the machine.Please do rate my solution, also do post comments in case of further doubts.

    Check the following for another case mentioned online in case the previous post does not solve the problem.

    5-> The outer tub has a check ball chamber that has 2 check balls that
    perform the duty of directing the water in the correct direction during
    recirculate & drain modes. If something has worked its way down
    past the basket & has gotten inside or in the way of the check
    balls, this could cause a long drain error code. You may want to pull
    out the spin basket & inspect the outer tub.

Kenmore (Calypso) Elite Washing machine shows LD and LF!


LD means long drain and according to the manual your drain hose could be clogged or kinked.
LF means long fill. check your water hoses and the screens to make sure they are not clogged. Had that happen to me once and i had to change the hoses. several months later same thing happened and it was the motor pump part # 8054968, this you can fix yourself.

Ld and ob error codes


hello.........
“LD” stands for “long drain,” meaning it took an excessively long time for water to drain out of the washer. Common causes for this are kinked drain hose or clothing, like panties or socks, caught in the pump suction hose. Why, I’ve even heard of bra wires coming loose and getting stuck in that hose, collecting all sorts of gookus and pinching off the flow of water to the pump. Can you imagine? Yea verily, as surely as the Sacred Suds doth eternally pass my lips, the “LD” error code springs forth from such anomalies.

LD is an error code for 'Long Drain'. The water pump may be clogged, there may be a clog under the washplate where the water exits the tub or a clog at the check valve. The best place to start is the water pump.
