My MDB6100AWB Maytag d/w drain hose stub slipped off the motor drain nipple - probably because of all the plunging I did in the kitchen sink when had a bad clog.
I can't get it back on securely from underneath. For this model do I have to remove the d/w and turn it on it's back in order to get that 3" black connector securely on the drain nipple? Or am I missing something here?

Here are some pointers to look at to determine the real problem. The code Ld indicates that the water level does not change after the drain pump is turned on.The machine/motor control detects such condition through the water level pressure sensor located in the control itself.
Since the drain pump is definitely not the problem, either the drain hose is blocked or installed too high, or the pressure sensor system is malfunctioning. Check if water is actually draining or not. If yes and the tub is actually empty when code appears, then the problem is in pressure sensor system. If no, then check for drain blockage.
Unplug the machine. Remove the three screws from the rear of the console assembly then pull console
towards the front of washer to hinge it open and remove console. The
machine/motor control assembly is located on the right hand side of the
machine that is enclosed in a casing with a clear tube/hose connected to
The clear tube/hose is the pressure hose. Check to make sure that everything
connected to the machine/motor control assembly is properly attached and
fully inserted and the pressure hose has no air leak, kinks, or moisture.
Turn off the water supply to the washer and disconnect the hot and cold
water hoses from the rear of the washer then remove the end of the
drain hose from where it is installed. Remove the eight screws from the
rear panel and remove the panel. Inspect the pressure hose for evidence of water then replace the hose if water or moisture is present. Inspect the air
dome hose connection port for lint or flashing.
Use a small round device
such as a small screwdriver to ensure that there is nothing blocking
the air dome outlet on the tub. Also disconnect the pressure hose from the machine/motor control and blow air forcefully down the hose and also into the pressure sensor inlet in the control.
Replace the machine/motor control assembly if
and only if verified that there are no issues with the pressure
sensor system. Remove all the wire connections to the machine/motor control then remove
the screw holding it to the console tray. Two plastic legs on the rear
of the machine/motor control assembly are fitted into the console tray.
Lift the front of the control assembly to pivot it out from the console
tray. Reinstall the new machine/motor control assembly then secure it to
the console tray and reconnect the wire harnesses.
NOTE: It is a good
idea to take note of the wire harness connections before disconnecting
them to prevent messing them up upon reconnection. Labeling the connections makes reconnection more easily and trouble-free.
Check the drain hose and clear it from any debris that might be blocking the water from draining out completely. If the drain hose is clear of debris, check and clean the pump. Disconnect the machine from the power outlet before servicing for safety purposes.
Remove the rear access panel to access the pump and disconnect the wiring harness from the terminals of the drain pump and the pressure switch.
Loosen the clamps holding the drain hose and the tub hose to the pump assembly. It is a good idea to spread a towel under the pump before loosening the clamps.
Remove the hoses and rotate the pump assembly counterclockwise to release the pump assembly support legs from the keyed slot in the base of the washer. Remove the pump assembly from the washer.
Clear the pump impeller from any debris that might be causing it to work improperly. Clean the tub and the drain hose.
Reassemble the pump, the hoses, and reconnect the wires to the terminals of the pressure switch and the drain pump. Reinstall the rear access panel and run the machine.
Replace the pump (part #25001052) if water still do not drain out completely.
Remove the plastic bag covering the pressure switch. Press in the locking tabs on the back of the pressure switch and pivot the pressure switch off the pump bracket.
Grasp the pressure switch and lift the nipple of the pressure switch from the pump cap.
Install the pressure switch into the new pump assembly in reverse of the steps above.
Good day, Remove front panel, 2 screws on bottom, lift bottom away and pull out. Check to see if pump belt is broken, or extremely loose. If loose, see if motor glide springs are free and pulling back on motor.
Reach under, and turn pulley of pump to see if it is free. If it will not move. Stop. Pull off pump to tube hose. Remove other hose on pump and remove. Remove pump. This machine is a known sock eater. Check hoses and pump, and if found clear. Feel up in tube nipple for same. If nothing, replace pump, or belts as needed. Note: belts should be replaced as a a pair. Reinstall the pump, and adjust as necessary.
get another hose same diamiter and two hose clamps and a splice nipple from hardware store, cut hose to lenght with some extra insert nipple into both hoses and clamp with hose clamps make sure you get them tight.. use a metal nipple as a plastic one may crack when you clamp hoses
The machine is held in the cabinet with several screws that go up into the front edge of the cabinet. Open the door to find the screws. Lift up on the washer cabinet slightly to avoid harming the kitchen floor when pulling the machine out. Try pulling the hose connection at the sink drain stub and using a wet/dry vacuum, **** the end of the hose and the drain stub. With luck, the clog will be pulled out. Good luck!
