Re: LD is on my display-nothing will clear it and washer...
The ld code means a long drain, what you probably have is something blocking the drain pump. you can get to the drain pump from the back of the unit and it will be the pump on the left as you face the back. you will need to remove the hose going into the pump and be ready for water to come out. sorry but you need to check inside the hose as there will be something blocking it. like a coin or some lint or a small sock. when you get the item out of the hose then it should work again. you do not need to reset the control. once it knows the unit is draining properly it will be ok.

There is no "Lo" code I can see in the service manual, but there is an "oL" code which flashes when the machine/motor control detects a load size that exceeds the washer's capacity. Open the door lid to clear the display, and remove excess laundry, then close the lid and restart the cycle.
There is an "Ld" which related to a Long Drain when the water level doesn't change after the drain pump is on. Need to check to see if the drain hose or the drain pump is clogged.
Hi There OK here's something you can read to help you with. I hope this helps.
if it takes longer than 5 minutes to pump out water to a
point where the operating pressure switch resets.
Press STOP/CANCEL to clear the display. Thank you for writing to fix ya. Best regards Richard
Ld flashes when the water level does not change after the drain pump is on. • Is the drain hose or the drain pump clogged? • Is the drain hose height greater than 96˝ ? • Is the pump running? If not, see TEST #7.
Long Drain you may have a something in the drain hose or drain pump or damaged drain pump.
“Ld” flashes if it takes longer than 5 minutes to pump out

LD means long drain and will require a drain pump replacement. The new pump is totally different from the old one so unless you are very crafty and good at figuring out puzzles, you may need to have a service company come out.
try to remove as much water as possible ..wet vac will help pull unit out remove back cover lean washer forward on left bottom is drain pump remove 3 screws holding pump and clamps holding hoses on pump..on motor side of pump are 4 screws remove them noting location and orientation of pump body clean out ..ck impeller ..round white part with fins ..if it is not broke try turning it by hand should turn but with some resistance if free wheels replace pump if you found stuff in pump reinstall and ck
This is another possible solution, more than likely most people will expierience clogs. I had the same problem today, upon removing the drain pump I noticed one of the dark blue wires was off of the connector that plugs into the pump, seems these are held in place by a "splice connector", and is a simple fix, after you unplug it from the drain pump take the connector and pull from the front and rear to open the splice jaws, re insert the wire and push back together. Plug it back into the pump, and that's it!
