The error is SD and means that the control thinks the water is not able to be pumped out of the tub. Is there water that is not draining out?

The tub was overflowing so I put it drain and spin cycle and the water drained but the spin cycle was not working properly

If the tub was overlfowing but the water is able to drain out, the pressure switch hose is probably just plugged. That hose is plugged directly onto the main control board (number 1 in the diagram at the link below).


With the machine unplugged, remove that hose and blow through it to make sure it is all clear. If you find it was plugged, that should restore normal operation. If you clear it and the problem continues, the pressure circuit in the main control is faulty and the control will need to be replaced.
