Tip & How-To about Samsung WF210ANW 3.5 Cu. Ft. White Front Load Washer

Samsung washing machine error SUD + SE

When a error code SUD appears there is an option (as it says in the manual) that this is a problem of the type of detergent or softener, but if it does not solve your problem, and in addition you get error code SE it is probably a different problem, so open the filter cover and clean it well, sometimes after you have cleaned and error are not disappear, there is a rare option that sock was go through the washing drum to the bottom of the heating tank(https://www.facebook.com/Israelitweets/videos/1735754073321933/) and stuck in transit pipe before entering to the water filter, which cause the problem of drainage, so re open the filter house put your finger into the left hole and try to grab the sock, now the problem is solved!

My washing machine gets a sud error often during the cycle. I have cleaned the drain as suggested

Vinegar does a great job of cutting suds and bubbles. I would put it in the detergent, softener, and bleach reservoirs and run a cycle. Then make sure you read the detergent amounts. It's easy to overdo detergent on a front-loader.

what does it mean when sud appears on the display screen and the washers seems like its not doing anything?

Hi, W/D here.
What you are seeing is the suds (SUD) error code, and is sometimes followed by a long drain fault code (F02).
This does not necessarily indicate that you need to change anything at this time. When the machine senses too much suds, the error code is displayed, when too much suds are actually present, a longer drain time results.
Duets are HE (high efficiency) machines, and require a detergent that produces little suds. If you are using HE detergent, cut back on it until you can run a cycle without getting the SUD/F02 alarms. If you are not using HE detergent (we don't either), you really have to be careful with the amount of detergent used.
Press PAUSE/CANCEL twice to clear the display. Run a cycle without any detergent to flush the machine.
You need to check that the drain hose isn't plugged or have a kink in it.
Make sure that the pump is running. You may need to check the electrical connections at the pump.
Check the filter on the drain pump for debris or foreign objects, which might cause the drain cycle to be extended, if you are also getting the F02 code.
If limiting the detergent, and nothing was found in checking the other items listed, then the pump may need to be replaced.

Best regards, --W/D--

display shows sud

"SUD" is a Suds Detect error code. The following link explains the error and potential causes:


The number one cause of the error is from using too much, or the wrong type of detergent. You are required to High Efficiency (HE) detergent with these washers because the concentration is formulated for HE washers that use small amounts of water. Using the wrong type of detergent can also void any warranty you may have.

NOTE: HE detergent does not have a lot of suds, which often confuses consumers into thinking they aren't using enough detergent. With HE washers little to no suds if normal and preferred.

Secondary causes can come from something restricting the drainage system. Most notably, something lodged in the drain pump and/or drain hose(s). I've included a follow-on link that explains how to check the drain pump reservior if required.

Read through the link provided and let me know if you still have questions. I hope this helps you.

stop in wash cycle and reads SUD

"SUD" is a SUDS detect error. This can be an indication of a restriction somewhere in the drainage system, a failed drain pump, you are using too much detergent, or you are using the wrong type of detergent. The following link explains the error in more detail and how to correct:


If you have any questions about this repair, or need additional assistance, please let me know. I hope this helps you.

NOTE: If these preliminary measures do not correct your problem, you may have to replace the drain pump. It does not take much to damage the pump impeller or motor. Since the error code can be generated if the drain cycle exceeds 8 minutes, if the pump is damaged and can't pump at the required volume, the error code will continue to appear until the pump is replaced.

Whirlpool Duet Washer-error code "sud"

Just take off the bottom kickplate (3 screws on the bottom). You'll see the pump front and center. Twist the front face of the pum slowly to the left. All the trapped water will flow right out towards you. There could be a sock or some other debris there. Unclog, screw that faceplate back in and start it up.
