I keep getting a SUD error, I have stopped the cycle and reset by unpluging the washer, it keeps showing the SUD error. What should I do?


This code indicates that an apparent sudsing condition is detected. It happens when a non-HE detergent is used. Run a cycle without detergent or allow the machine to fill then drain it to make sure suds are removed. The problem is in draining if the code still flashes even no detergent is used.

Unplug the machine or disconnect power then remove the three screws attaching the bottom of the lower front access panel and pull the panel down and off. Once the panel is off, you'll find the drain filter attached to the drain pump.

Place a container or a piece of towel underneath the filter to catch spillage. You may need to drain the water from the machine by putting the end of the drain hose over a container on the floor. Position the container as low as possible to extract as much water.

Remove the filter by turning the knob counterclockwise and clean it. Also take a moment to inspect the drain pump impeller by reaching it in with your finger and turning it. The impeller should turn freely. Otherwise, replace the drain pump.

What does the IE error code mean? The washer wont drain.


The IE fault code indicates that your washer is not filling properly with water This error code is displayed if the washer is not fully drained within 10 minutes. I will give you troubleshooting tips for both the fill problem and the drain problem.

To troubleshoot a drain problem, follow these steps:

  • Follow the steps on page 17 of your owner's manual to clean the drain pump filter. If you do not have your owner's manual, you can access it on our Manage My Home website.
  • Check your drain hose for kinks or clogs.
  • Make sure that the drain hose is properly installed according to the installation instructions for your washer.

Here are some troubleshooting steps for the filling problem:

  • Make sure that the water valves behind your washer are fully open.
  • Check the filter screens on the inlet valves where your fill hoses connect to the back of the washer. If debris is clogging the screens, remove the screens and thoroughly clean them. Flush the inlet openings thoroughly with water to prevent debris from entering the washer and corrupting the inlet water valves.
  • A drain installation problem can cause siphoning of washer fill water. Make sure that the drain hose is properly installed per the installation guidelines for your washer.

"4E" is displayed after hours


Please check the drain hose. Maybe it fell too low, so that when the water comes in it just drains out of the drain hose, thus the needed water level is not reached. If so, raise the drain hose so that the highest loop should reach about the same height of your washer

On Spin cycle it continues filling up with water and when it starts spinning the water pours out of the top of machine. Also with Power failure or overload it continues to fill up with water and never...


We are talking about a FAV6800A or FAV9800A machine correct?

You will need the Service Manual for reference. Sears Parts Direct for reference.

If so it sounds like you have a stuck Water Valve or a Pressure Switch malfunction that never signals the Control Board of wash tub water level. And or a possible drain pump/drain line clog. I don't think you have a Drain Line issue because you don't report an ND error code for no drain.

Are you up for troubleshooting to DIY the repair?


If you unplug the washer does water continue to flow which requires you to shut the water valve to the washer? If water doesn’t flow I would next step you through how to check that the Pressure Switch is signaling the Control Board to turn off the 120VAC to the water inlet solenoids on proper water level fill.

Before we go any further let’s hear back from you.

I own a FAV6800A and I'm very familiar with troubleshooting and resolving issues with both it and the LCD version the FAV9800A.........Rich

Error code nD, won't go into spin cycle


Is the Machine a FAV6800A or a FAV9800A?

Do you want to DIY the fix?

The nd error code = No Drain error code.

You could have drain line clog, an issue with the drain pump or a stuck pressure switch. Do you hear the machines drain pump turn on and pump out water before entering lnto the spin cycle? Is there water left in the tub with the nd error code? If you can provide feedback on the questions above I will help guide through the troubleshooting steps.

You will need the Service Manual to troubleshoot.
