Re: display panel reads SUDS

The SUDS message relates to overdose of detergent detected during the Wash Cycle. This may signify a bad pump, an extra heavy load, excessive detergent or excessive suds. If too much detergent was used, run the washer through a Rinse/Spin cycle, then a Normal cycle, without adding any detergent. This should clear the unit of the excess detergent. Check the drain hose and make sure it is not plugged or kinked. Good luck!

What does 5ud mean 10 minutes from finishing 5 Ud displayed can't open door?

The SUD (not 5UD) code is displayed when excess foam is detected (possibly because excessive detergent is being used). If your machine does not cure itself, you may have to run an "Eco drum clean" cycle (if your machine has it) or a 90 degree cotton cycle with no detergent and no load.

Won't finish the wash cycle

Initially we 1)used less detergent and make sure its marked 'he' . extra soap suds initiates error codes. 2) ran white vinegar with no detergent to clear suds 3) opened, checked and cleared trap.
Everything worked for a time but codes would return or like you would not finish wash cycle until water line in back of machine was made rigid so there was no chance of water or sud backup. So far so good. Good luck.

My washer (a Maytag Epic Z has been making noise and not finishing cycles. I'll start it and go to unload it and it'll read 5d on the display. What is going on?

Washer wont finish cycle and display reads "LR"

Hello todd.... This is a common problem with the neptune. It means that the machine needs a new motor and a new motor control board kit. If you are under warranty do a repair. If not, get an estimate before you go ahead and repair it. Joe

Thanks for choosing Fixya!

The cycle will not finish. It gives an reading of

LE is a water level issue. Make water is supplied correctly and turned on. Check the waters valves and the water level sensor.

Suds is just letting you know that the machine sensed to much suds. Reduce the detergent you are using and make sure it's HE detergent.

My duet wont finish the cycle it makes sounds but wont spin or drain. shows 5d on control panel

The 5d (or Sd) error code indicate that the control detected a suds lock or overdose of detergent during the drain or spin phases of the cycle. This is usually caused by overuse of detergent. It can also be caused by using regular detergent instead of HE (High Efficiency) detergent. After the excessive suds dissipate, you can normally clear the fault code and then run a drain/spin to finish the load of laundry. If you detect no excessive suds, this fault code could be caused by a clogged drain system or a failed water level pressure switch. hope this helps....

Get error SUD and will not finish 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.
