So I've had a look through this site and seen several instances of this problem but have not been able to fix mine. Switch the dishwasher on, dishwasher does it's drain bit OK, then stops, then nothing for 10 minutes, then IE error message displayed. Checked solenoid, OK. Replaced it anyway, as there is water pressure to the valve and no lines kinked. filters unblocked. After solenoid replace, same problem. Checked for wires melted into insulation mastic behind front cover, all Ok. It appears to me that the solenoid is not opening when it is supposed to (can't hear anything - I imagine there should be a "click" sound when it opens. Am I up for a new board - or is there something else I can check first? Thanks for any help :^)

Dishwasher not draining properly or not draining at all issues can arise due
to different reasons. Usually, these issues are related to kinked hoses,
knocked out disposer unit (if connected with the dishwasher drain hose) &
clogged drain pump & filter.
Also note that dishwashers do not
drain completely after a finished cycle and this is normal. Dishwashers are
designed to leave some water in the unit to ensure that the heating element
doesn’t overheat. If you suddenly begin to experience a large amount of water
being retained in your dishwasher, you have a problem. Some of the most common
reasons include that the drain hose isn’t working properly, the drain pump
isn’t working correctly, or possibly there is a plumbing problem in your home’s
First check whether the drain is
not clogged or blocked and the line is not kinked. Check all the hoses for
blockages & also clean the air gap. Has the disposer been replaced
recently? If so, chances are the knockout is still in place. Simply remove the
drain hose from the disposer, and knock out the plug. If the disposer has not
been replaced, try removing the drain hose from the disposer and use a wet-dry
vacuum (prepared for water, of course) to **** any water (and hopefully anything
else) from the drain line. Then reconnect the hose, and test the unit. If you
have checked the air gap and the drain hose and can’t locate the problem, then
it is an issue with the drain pump of the dishwasher.

Ld unit problem. This code can be very frustrating, as it can be triggered by several things -top right door switches shorting out, toner on the LD unit board, laser synch board problem, bad connection between the BICU and the LD unit, etc. The bottom line is, if you're not a technician, you will need one to solve this error. Make sure to always perform the LD pitch adjustment (both 400 and 600dpi) after doing any service to the laser unit.
“LD” stands for “long drain,” meaning it took an excessively long time for water to drain out of the washer. Common causes for this are kinked drain hose or clothing, like panties or socks, caught in the pump suction hose. Why, I’ve even heard of bra wires coming loose and getting stuck in that hose, collecting all sorts of gookus and pinching off the flow of water to the pump. Can you imagine? Yea verily, as surely as the Sacred Suds doth eternally pass my lips, the “LD” error code springs forth from such anomalies.

I had this problem also. Ld means that it is taking too long for the tub to drain, usually something is clogged. Try taking a shop vac and sucking out the drain hose that goes into the wall drain. This should at least get you where the tub will finish the cycle you have going. I tried this and it worked for about 2 loads then "Ld" again. Finally removed the drain pump from the washer and let it empty completely. So far this has worked.
