Question about Washing Machines
The "LD" code or "long drain" has to do with the amount of time it took to drain the water. It's not only IF the water drained, but HOW QUICKLY it drained. The things to check are the drain line. Make sure it is not kinked or obstructed in any way. The next check would be the pump. Remove the hoses and use a flashlight to look into the suction port and make sure that nothing is clogging the pump (like the occasional stray sock, etc) and check the pump impeller. Make sure there are no broken or missing blades and that the impeller will spin freely. If there are any damaged/missing blades or if you cannot get the impeller to spin freely, then the pump is defective. Hopefully it's just a clogged drain line, pump, or jammed impeller. Run a hot wash cycle with a 1/2 cup of vinegar also. This will help clean out any sludge buildup in the drain line. Really sorry for your trouble and I hope this helped. Best wishes.

Hello & Welcome to FixYa
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.
