Remove the console, there are 3 screws on the back of the console that hold it on. You will see a plastic hose goin to the machine control board. Remove it from the board and see if you can blow through it. If you can, you probably need a control board. If not then something has gotten into it. You should be able to blow through it easily. This is the pressure hose that tells the board when the machine has water in it. If it gets clogged with pressure in it, the control thinks it still has water in it. Post back to let me know what you find.

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 code LD means long drain. This error appears when the washer takes more than 5 minutes to pump out the water till point where pressure switch resets. To resolve the issue you'll need to clean the drain hose, inspect if the drain hose is plugged. If the hose is fine, then remove the front kick panel and access the drain pump and filter, if you are unable to find the pump and filter remove the back panel as well and trace the drain hose to the bottom of the tub. There is a drain filter connected with the drain pump. It usually gets clogged, and needs to be cleaned every 6-8 months or so. The drain filter is a small white filter connected to drain pump with a hose. If it still doesn't work then you'll need to check the connections of the drain pump, check the electrical connections with a multimeter. Hope this helps... Please post back for more information.
Long Drain Ld flashes when the water level does not change after the drain pump is on. Is the drain hose clogged? Is the drain hose height greater than 96′? Is the pump running? If not, see TEST #7, page 13.

ld stands for long drain. If you can remove the bottom panel you will see the pump in the middle front which has a clean out you can unscrew. There is usually obstructions in the clean out such as a sock causing the long drain. When u remove the clean out cover alot of water will come out so a wet vac comes in handy.
