We've had this machine fixed several times, still under warranty, and
finally appeared to be working normally. However, now there is an
error code LD, and we can't get past it, so the washer has a tub full
of wet clothes and no way to empty the water. We/ve unplugged the
machine, let it sit, plugged it in again, and it is stuck flashing with
50 and we can't clear out anything.
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.

"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.
You may have an obstruction in your pump which causes it to drain slower than usual, or binds the impeller. Flow can still be pretty good even with this problem but the brain will sense a longer than normal drain time and flag the error. Try removing the water pump and look for underwires, paper clips or hairpins.

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. Hope this helps.
With an error code the only way to find and to repair this is,
First unplug the washer and wait a few minutes then restart it like rebooting your computer when its acting strange! If it corrects the problem GREAT!!! WE WIN!
How old is the washer?
If the appliance is 10 years old or more you it may not be advisable to put good money into bad! New appliances are so much more efficient today that they can save you a lot of money in energy!!!! Water,Electric and detergent! And put money back in your pocket! The new appliance will pay for itself in only a few years!

Friend, ngfam1 At your service! When it is a code the machine is telling you that there is a fault and the electronic system needs to be diagnosed by a trained tech. My advise is, You spent enough money buying that Cabrio to be experimenting and guessing and buying expensive parts for it! Let the tech fix it 123 and your done. It may not have needed the drain pump and now that money could have covered the service call!
