Duet washer , clean filter still get sud reading. Washes well without clothes. Wash with and without soap and did not put in clothes. The machine went throught the cycle with no problems. When you


do you get a lot of suds when you run it without soap and clothes ? if so put about a cup or 2 of vegetable oil into the washer and run a cycle . soap suds will adhere to the oil and it will help it to remove from washer . after you can run a clean cycle with bleach or white distilled vinegar.

Spinning cycle


Keeping in mind that the soap & bleach gets dispensed into your wash on the second to last rinse cycle and that most all rinse cycles are in cold water. Is your cold water valve screen plugged causing your washer to rinse poorly? Are you using the HE detergent? If not maybe the washer is sudsing up to much and having a hard time rinsing all the suds and bleach out and leaving the clothes soapy.

Fill the washer up with no clothes in it on a cold/cold wash setting does it take a long time to fill the washer up? Also when it is full and agitating is there suds in the washer?

Last suggestion is if the drain is hose is a lot higher than the top of the washer it might have a hard time draining out all of the soap water before the next load

Rl on the control panel


The "rl" (remove load) error code appears when you are running the "Clean Washericon1.png" cycle. You must not have a load of clothes in the washer during this cycle. Remove the clothes from the drum, and restart the cycle. The "Sud" error indicates that the detergent is over-sudsing. The Duet washer automatically combats this by reducing the amount of suds in the washing machine. Let the washer finish the suds-reduction steps. Use less detergent during the next wash cycle.

A code saying 5d or Sd is coming up on my machine, what is that


The code Sd means that suds were detected. Generally this means you used regular detergent instead of the HE detergent. Less often it indicates that you used more detergent than needed for the load.

Remember to use an HE (high efficiency) detergent and to follow the directions for the amount to use in a wash cycle.

The washer should do a suds correction program to make sure that the clothes are fully rinsed. However, if the code remains and the wash cycle dial is flashing, set your washer to repeat the cycle with cold water without adding additional detergent. (Every portion of the wash cycle will be extra rinses.)

The manual for the washer is available as a PDF from Maytag's support site. http://www.kitchenaid.ca/assets/pdfs/literature/Use%20and%20Care%20Guide%20-%20W10092824.pdf is the manual for the MVWB750WB0. Additional manuals for MVWB750W washers are listed here: http://shared.whirlpoolcorp.com/product_literature/search_results.jsp?searchTerm=MVWB750W&siteCd=MT_EN_US .

I hope this helps.

The washer stopped while in wash cycle. The water is in the machine but it says add garment, rinse, clothes clean and F-21. Help thanks.


F21 indicates that the washer is having problems draining. Check the drain hose to see if it is kinked or if there is an obstruction in the hose.

SUD comes on every time excessive suds are detected. Not using the proper detergent will set this off faithfully. The machine will run a cycle to remove the excessive suds before completing the wash cycle.once you remove the lower panel you will see the pump it has a round cap that can be rotated counter clock wise but before you do this you will need towels and possibly a shop vac because you will lots of water, but mostlikly you have debris stuck in it or a bad pump. REMEMBER LOTS OF WATER!!!!!!!!, be careful. I think it would be best to cal a service person especially if the washer is upstairs.

My maytag clothes washer Bravo quiet series 300, keeps flashing a Sd error code. Or it may be 5d


What does the Sd code mean?

This code indicates that excessive detergent suds occurred during the cycle. The washer will not be able to spin out water with the excess suds. When "Sd" is displayed, the washer automatically extends the rinse time to remove the excess suds. During this time, the washer pauses the wash action and adds water for additional rinsing. This pause allows the bubbles in the suds to break. This process is necessary and may occur several times to eliminate the suds.

Concentrated detergents labeled 2x and higher will require a small amount of detergent based on load size. Always follow the manufacturer's recommendations.

Use only HE High Efficiency detergent for BravosTM washers.

Is "Sd" displayed and the wash cycle dial is flashing?

This indicates the washer was not able to clear all the excess suds from the washer. Re-select your desired cycle using cold water. Press Start/Pause. Do not add detergent.

Is "Sd" displayed and the wash cycle dial is not flashing?

If "Sd" is displayed and the wash cycle dial is not flashing, allow the machine to continue running, even if it appears that nothing is happening. When "Sd" is displayed, the washer automatically extends the rinse time to remove the excess suds. During this time, the wash action will pause to allow the bubbles in the suds to break, and the washer will add water for better rinsing. This rinsing process is necessary and may occur several times to eliminate the suds.

Is the drain hose kinked or clogged?

Make sure that the drain hose is not kinked or clogged. Straighten the hose for adequate water flow. Remove any blockage from the drain hose, drainpipe or utility sink. Use the U-shaped drain hose form on the drain hose, and secure the drain hose.

To remove the error display, press Power/Cancel or Pause/Cancel once.

If Power/Cancel or Pause/Cancel does not work:

  1. Unplug the washer or disconnect the power for one minute.
  2. Plug in the washer or reconnect the power.
  3. Re-select the cycle and press Start/Pause.

NOTE: If the error remains on the display, and all of the other questions above have been checked, call for service.

The words Sud comes up in the rinse cycle. What does this mean?


You are putting too much soap before you begin the wash cycle...... When the word SUDS is displayed then on the rinse cycle there is too much soap and the suds are still on the clothes. Try cutting back on the soap, maybe cut back almost 1/2.

Error f35? What's the fix?


They can and fixed my washer today! The fix was the replacement of a switch. The item # was W10156252 for my washer. It is called a switch-WL. Item # may be different for your model. I was getting SUDS and F35 errors. To install it you just remove the top part of the washer and should be located at the upper right-hand side, attached to a black hose. The switch has a small computer board. The price of the swith is around $130. Fortunately I bought a 3-year warranty on my washer.

Tried to wash a load of clothes and keep getting an error code "sub". The machine will not complete a cycle, won't rinse, etc. What does the error code mean and how can I fix it?


SUDS LOCK (OVERDOSE OF DETERGENT
DETECTED DURING THE WASH CYCLE)

The motor control unit senses a suds lock condition by analyzing the
current draw on the drive motor. If “Sud” is displayed a potential Suds
Lock is detected. This may signify a bad pump, an extra heavy load,
excessive detergent, or excessive suds.

Possible Causes / Procedure
■ If too much detergent was used:
—Run the unit through a Rinse/Spin cycle.
—Run a Normal cycle without adding any detergent.
This should clear the unit of the excess detergent.
1. Check the drain hose and make sure it is not plugged
or kinked.
2. Unplug washer or disconnect power.
3. Check wire harness connections to the drain pump,
pressure switch, and Central Control Unit (CCU).
4. Check/clean drain pump filter of foreign objects.
5. Plug in washer or reconnect power.
6. Check drain pump.
7. Check the pressure switch.
8. Verify CCU operation by running a Diagnostic test or any
cycle.
