Fd means Factory Default settings.

A Fd (Factory Default) error code indicates that the washer was set back to factory default settings.

To return all options and modifiers to Factory Default, press POWER/CANCEL, select Drain & Spin cycle, and then press Extra Rinse, Fabric Softener, Extra Rinse, Fabric Softener within 5 seconds. When done correctly, the 7-segment displays show “Fd” for 3 seconds and then unit returns to Standby Mode.
