LD is an error code for long drain .
Is there standing water in the unit?
Yes. It seems to be under the basket though. I can't see water in the basket, but when I move the basket, I hear water.
Ok this humming you hear when it is trying to drain, does it sound like it is coming from the right rear corner, under the unit?
I can't really tell. Its the slightest of hum, but definitely below the unit. Not the control panel.
Ok pull the unit out away from the wall, unplug it and tilt it back against the wall.
Under the unit on the right side is the drain pump. Have some towels ready and remove the hoses from the pump and look for socks or other debris.
Let me know what you find!
I got the really long hose off and it seems clear. I also got the very short hose off of the tub and I can get my finger through the pump. I can feel a wire in there that doesn't seem to fit, but no obvious obstructions. I can't get the short hose off of the pump.
I'll bet the wire is from a under wire from a bra, common issue. If you pull the wire out the pump should start to work.
It wasn't an under wire bra...it was a small piece about 2 inched long and as thin as the wire in a twist tie. The pump wheel now snaps around but doesn't spin freely. Is that right?
Yes that is correct, now it should drain fine.
Getting that little hose back on will be the problem...
It should just slip on and then the hose clamp.
