Whirlpool Duet HT GWH9300P Suds then F2

We received a "suds" error. Turned it to Rinse & Drain with 12 min. left on the timer. It didn't do anything till it got down to 4 min then it flashed the F2 code. I then pushed the "pause/cancel" button, it then proceeded to rinse and aggitate or spin real slow changing directions. Now it's down to 1 min, still has plenty of water in it and it won't do anything. Leave it sit long enough and it will flash the F 02 code again

    I keep turning it off and resetting the drain cycle. eventually the cycle completes, but I must be missing a cycle because my fabric softner does not get used. I sort of understand what you are suggesting, but is there a manual that could walk me through it?

    Start the wash and after a few minutes or more it stops and flashes SUDS then I stop and restart and it goes for awhile until it stops and flashes F2 and beeps until I stop it and start the drain cycle and then it will finally finish.

This means that the drain time has exceeded 8 minutes and the water valves have turned off. After 4 minutes the suds error is displayed then 4 minutes later the F2 error.
Potential causes
1.Check drain hose for kinks or cloggs
2.Check electrical connection at the pump and make sure the pump runs.
3.Check inside of pump for foreign objects
4.If none of the above fixes the machine replace the pump.

Whirlpool duet f35 error-suds error


Maybe this will help, but I'm not sure

Condition:
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.

Check:
If too much detergent was used, run the unit 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.
Check Wire Harness connectors to the Drain Pump, Pressure Switch, and Central Control Unit (CCU)
Check/Clean Drain Pump Filter of foreign objects
Check Drain Pump
Check Pressure Switch
Check CCU

I have sud



It should start back up when the suds have cleared. Though you may need to manually restart the machine. If you don't use high efficiency (he) detergent you are likely to get the suds error frequently.


What happens is that regular detergent creates too many suds. When the machine drains the water emptys first leaving a layer of suds. The pump can't move suds because of it's poor design. Try to imagine a hose filled with suds with a small impeller at one end. The impeller can pull the suds immediately around it away but anything out of it's reach will just sit there till they pop.

Likewise, the pressure switch can't detect a lack of pressure because the suds (being ornery little clusters of air) sit in the space that should be occupied by water, or in this case no water. Fooling in effect, the pressure switch into behaving as if the tub still contains water. Once enough bubbles pop the pressure switch will do it's thing and the time display will start where it stopped as does the rest of the cycle, in this case final spin. Or it may give an error code and go into standby mode.

Unless you just use way too much detergent ten minutes should be way more than enough time for suds to pop or about anything else to correct itself. So if it doesn't start back up on it's own try to restart it yourself.

The other possibility is that there is debris in the drain hose that goes from tub to drain pump. Or if drain pump has a clean out basket as part of the drain pump it will likely need cleaned as well.

IT READS SUD


The SUD 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.

How do I fix my washer that only says 'sud' constantly and won't work at all? Whenever I try to start a cycle nothing happens. Whenever I push a button nothing happens. Please Help.


http://whirlpool.custhelp.com/app/answers/detail/a_id/2948
Hi please go to this above link, it is all explained at length what is going on and what to do.

This error code indicates that excessive detergent suds occurred during the cycle.
If a "Sud" or "Sd" error code is displayed, or if you can see excessive suds in the window:
There are too many suds in the washing machine. The washer will not be able to spin out water with the excess suds. When "Sud" or "Sd" is displayed, the washer automatically extends the rinse time to remove the excess suds. During this time, the washer pauses the tumbling and adds water for additional rinsing. This pause allows the bubbles in the suds to break. This pause and rinsing are necessary and may occur several times to eliminate the suds. See the animation below for more information.
  • If you see "Sud" or "Sd" with the Rinse status light on, the washer is in the process of removing suds. Let the cycle continue.
  • If you see "Sud" or "Sd" and the Cycle Complete light is on, the washer detected too many suds during the cycle and your load may not be fully rinsed or water may not be fully removed. You may want to select a Rinse/Spin cycle for further rinsing.

"F02" is a Long Drain error. If the drain time exceeds 8 minutes this error code will be displayed. In addition, a "SUDS" error may also be generated as a secondary error. This is an indication of a drain pump problem and/or clog in the drain line. You will need to check the following:

1. Check the drain hose to make sure it is not kinked or clogged.
2. Check the electrical connections to the pump and ensure the pump is running.
3. Remove the drain pump filter and check for foreign objects and/or debris.

To check the drain pump, click on the following link for step-by-step instructions.

It keeps F2 me or saying suds I can't remember

If the drain time exceeds 8 minutes, the water valves are turned off and "F/02" is flashed.

  • Check the drain hose and make sure it is not plugged or kinked.
  • Check the electrical connections at the pump and make sure the pump is running.
  • Check the drain pump filter for foreign objects.
