Press stop, cancel twice to reset. The Ld error is when it takes longer than 5 minutes for the washer to drain and reset the sensor. You probably have a partially plugged strainer or drain line. To check the strainer, remove the kick panel at the front bottom of the machine. The strainer is ibetween the drum and the pump, being connected to the drum with a rubber hose. Open the strainer (caution, water!), and clean. If you did not find much in the strainer, clean the drain hose. Dump the contents of the drain hose into a bucket. If possible, run an empty losd with dth drain line pointed outside.
This should fix your issue!

SOURCE: ld code wont turn on

Well the generic answer for an LD code is Long Drain, chances are the Pump is clogged. if this is a Calypso, it can be fixed by tipping the unit back and unscrewing the three 5/16 screws in the bottom/front of the bottom panel. this will give yuou access to the pump. its on the right. there are 2 styles of pump, the older style is a large plastic piece that has 2 clips holding it on. this is next to impossible to clean out. if its lint of loose fabric that has gotten in, you wont be able to remove it. if its a sock, thats a lot easier. you will need a new pump if you cant clean it out. if its the newer style pump, these are made to be able to clean them easily. 4 torx head screws to remove the pump chamber housing, de-lint it and button it back up. on both pumps your going to have to deal with a lot of water ejecting. if you have hose clamps use those and put down lots of towels or a strategicly placed bucket. leaning the tub back as far as possible can help to, but not all the way, it could spill out the top of the tub then. best thing to do is to bring it outside where a spill doesnt matter. good luck.

SOURCE: What does it mean when LD shows in the display on my washer?

“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.
To check the drain pump, click on the following link for step-by-step instructions

If the above procedures do not correct the problem, it is recommended by the manufacturer to replace the drain pump.

Hello.

What this code means indicate that the door of your washer is not well close .

Sounds like the strainer/filter is partially blocked causing Long Drain, remove the access panel and unscrew filter cap to clean, hopefully nothing is jammed in the pump.Hope this helps

My washing machine is a Maytag Bravo, My Manual is packed as were moving, I need to know what the error code LD is and how to clear it


Error code LD means Long Drain. It flashes when washer takes longer than 5 minutes to pump out water to a point where the operating pressure switch resets. Make a careful visual inspection of the hoses, and see if you notice anything under the main tub, that could be causing a blockage.
