Kenmore elite quiet pak 4 ''suds'' error

I have a kenmore elite quiet pak 4 front load washer (not sure if it is the the 45986 listed below) and it has stopped and currently shows the word "suds".  What should I do to complete the cycle? Also, can you tell me if it is safe to use a concentrated (x2) detergent.  Thank you in advance.

Kenmore elite 5t steam f35 and sud problem


The F35 error code indicates a problem with the analog pressure sensor, air hose or air trap. If the hose and trap are good you will need to replace the pressure sensor

The "Sud" error code indicates too much or the wrong kind of laundry soap was used. Be sure to use only HE (high efficiency) detergent on this model of washer.

Door won't open


the lock switch is probably stuck. make sure machine is off but plugged in still. Push in on the door while gently giving a couple of thumps around the lock area and the lock will probably "click" open.

I have a Kenmore Elete 45862401 Quiet Pac2 front end washer that stops during the wash cycle. it flashes a f6 error code. The manual says it is a loose wire between the mcu and/or control panel,shipping...


With the front door open, see if you can rotate the basket freely.  If not, most likely the bearing of the rear tub is worn out.  You will have to replace the whole rear tub which is about $300 for the part.  I am having the same issue with my Kenmore Elite Quiet Pak 2.  I'm contemplating with just buy a new top-load washer.

KENMORE ELITE SMART WASH QUIET PAK 4 FRONT LOADER,


Now this is a drain issue from the pump, clean out or check drain hose position to make sure hose isnt in water. Front loader right? kick panel under door has two screws, 1/4 or Torx T20 will remove them. You will see a clean out screw handle that holds junk. Use a trash bag wrapped around the clean out to catch water and debris..
