My washer stops at the spin cycle. The LD code eventually comes on. The repairman pulled out a coin from the drain. That wasn't the problem. The next repairman took a small sock out of the pump. That wasn't the problem. On a third visit, the repairman replaced the pump just in case. He took apart the basket unit to make sure nothing was blocking. That wasn't the problem, either. Now, it appears that the tub won't fill on all the cylces. I have to put it to the sheets setting for the water to fill the tub. When it gets to spin cycle, I have to stop washer and turn power off. I start it up at the rinse cycle. It usually stops at 12 minutes when the spin cyle has to work and eventually the LD comes on. I'm beside myself. This washer is 1 year and 3 months old!

Re: My washer stops at the spin cycle. The LD code
“F21” (AKA SD) is a Long (SLOW) Drain error (LD). If the drain time exceeds 8 minutes this error code will be displayed. In addition, a “SUDS” error may also be displayed. This may be an indication of a drain pump problem and/or clog in the drain line. You will need to check the following:
1.First, attempt to unplug the washer for at LEAST 30 minutes to reset the Central Control Unit (CCU). Sometimes this is all that is required to correct momentary glitches with the unit. If the error code returns, proceed to step 2. 2.Check the drain hose to make sure it is not kinked or clogged. 3.Check the electrical connections to the pump and ensure the pump is running. 4.Remove the drain pump filter and check for foreign objects and/or debris.

Hello the LD code simply means "Long Drain" Is there water in the bottom of the tub? If yes then open back of
washer and remove drain pump (on left side) and pull off of tub and
clear whatever is blocking its impeller.
If the water is all gone and drained but pump stays on for several
minutes and then gives "LD" fault then open back and check the small
clear tube that is attached to the tub. Make sure is not blocked with
debris and check tube and tub for anything that could block the small
clear tube. If these are ok then remove 3 screws in back of the control
panel, pull open control panel and check the clear tub all the way up
from the tub to the washer controller board (computer) make sure it is
not kinked or disconnected. If not then the problem is most likely the
pressure sensor on the (computer). This unit will have to be replaced.
You can test the sensor by doing the following: 1. When the "LD" fault
comes on start by pressing the pause button. then pull the clear tube
off of the computer board. Then attach a tight fitting drinking straw
over the sensor. Press the start button and wait for 60 seconds - If
the washer does not start the spin cycle on its own after the 60
seconds then **** on the drinking straw that you attached to the
pressure sensor earlier. The sucking action should reset the sensor
thus telling the computer that the water is drained and it will start
the spin cycle. Just remember if you have to do this to get the washer
to spin - that means the sensor is damaged most likely from moisture
traveling up the tube over time. The computer board will need to be
replaced. I believe it costs $205 without shipping.
LD is the error when it takes longer than 5 minutes to drain the water out and reset the sensor. Press pause/cancel twice to clear. The washer will begin a slow spin, and when the motor allows, increase the spin speed towards the spin speed selected. Depending on the model, it will make several attempts, each time pulling water off of the load at the slower speed. If it cannot "get permission" to increase to it's selected speed within the allotted tome, it ends the cycle and the error code "LD" is displayed. Usually two common things can contribute to the DL alarm. One is the strainer, and the other is the drain line. The strainer is in line between the drum and the pump. On a front loader, it is behind the kick panel below the front main panel. It is connected to the drum with a rubber hose and strains the water going to the pump. Clean the strainer, and, while it is open, look inti the pump cavity. Remove any debris that you find there. Reassemble the strainer.
Anything that gets by the strainer and pump will eventually pass through the drain line and on out through the house drain. Empty the drain hose into a bucket to help displace any sediment and debris in the line. If possible, run an empty cycle with the drain hose pointed outside.

We had the same problem on and off for 6 months before I called for service. My machine is also about 3 years old. Yours is probably a low water use machine. We also pulled the back off and cleaned the hoses. Also unplugged it hoping to clear the code. We could get it to reset but it would screw up again next time. Got sick of having to haul soaking wet clothes to the neighbors to rince and spin. This sounds stupid but have you tried using an "HE" detergent? They are low sudsing. Tide and Gain and several others make it. Also comes in powder and liquid. Sometimes hard to find, These HE are made for the newer low water use washers. I was stunned when the repairman told me this was my problem. I have not had a problem since I bought this type of soap> Make sure it says "HE" on the container. The salesman, nor the owners manual mentioned this. Good Luck
Since that you let repairman do twice and didn't fixed the problem, I think your washer have still warranty from the vendor. and they repair it free.
Please verify the panel board of the machine maybe got grounded in the wiring or got wet. How ever you can do that in your own you should consult the repairman on that matter. however the two repairman did not resolve, so its better to bring the washer's to the vendor. im sure they can fix the issue or you will be enlightened by their valuable suggestion and solution.
The washer drew half a tub of water on the "Bulky items" cycle, and stopped. All the lights on the cycle dial light up and flash, the machine beeps and the me error message in the "estimated time remaining" field is "Ld". I've tried to shut the machine down and change the cycle to "drain and spin" but it will not agitate, won't drain or spin.
LD code means your pump is cloged with lint or small piece of clothing such as a sock. I had the same code on my washer and sure enough i found my pump cloged with lint from a blanket my wife washed. hope this helps. sorry I cant help on the other code.
