SOURCE: washer gets ld code
The ld fault is a long drain error. Check your drain pump reservoir and drain hoses for clogs. Removing the agitator in my opinion would be unnecessary. Unplug your machine and remove the back panel. There should be a drain pump reservoir at the bottom under the wash basin. They are notorious for collecting lint and hair and can obstruct the drain flow. You can also squeeze along the drain lines and feel for obstructions. To access the drain pump itself, its easier to remove the front panel. You will need to release the two metal hold down clips located under the front lip approx. two inches from either side. You need a putty knife to push in on the clips and lift on the top front at the same time. Once you have the top released, lift up and remove two screws holding the front panel. The front panel should pull away leaving an open access to the inside cabinet. The drain pump is located on the lower right-hand side of the wash tub at the very bottom of the unit. You can easily remove the two drain lines at the pump and check for obstructions there as well. Again, unplug the unit before servicing the pump. I hope this helps.

SOURCE: What does ld mean on my washer?
op is probably ob, off balance, the ld is long discharge, most likely the pump is bad or full of junk, the origional pumps were updated to a better design so as not to get stopped up.

SOURCE: Kenmore Calypso washer Ld code?
I recently had the same problem. I actually took the two hoses off of the pump and found a penny in their. It was actually difficult, I couldn't figure out an easy way to get the water out first and had quite a mess. But now the washer works again.

LD means long drain and will require a pump replacement. The new pump is totally different from the old one so unless you are very crafty and good at figuring out puzzles, you may need to have a service company come out. I don't know what the other code means but most of the time the pump is the major problem with these units.

Ld=Long drain. If it takes longer than five minutes to drain the water the operating pressure switch resets. Most common problem associated with this code is a clogged or failing water pump and hoses.
ob=Off balance. Open the lid and redistribute the clothes evenly around the tub, close lid and press the start button.
