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.

It sounds like your thermal fuse is out. You can check it for continuity
with an ohm meter, make sure your dryer is unplugged first! Or you can
take the wires off the thermal fuse and use electrical tape to tape
them together to see if it will come on.
CLICK HERE for the TECH SHEET on your washer... and HERE to see the thermal fuse.
Sometimes the plastic start button can break a little tab off the back as well, so check it as well.

The F50 error code indicates that the RPS (rotor position sensor) detects no motor rotation. Check to see if the basket spins freely. If not, you could have an item caught between the outer tub and the inner spin basket. A toy or other item underneath the washer could also prevent the basket from spinning and would result in this F50 code.
If the basket spins freely, you could have a wiring failure that would prevent the motor from spinning.
