Question about Whirlpool Duet GHW9150P Front Load Washer
Washer stopped working, initially had a message 5d, which means too much soap. Door won't open. I tried to do a rinse /spin, but it wouldn't run and now get an error message of F-. Door still won't open and the washer won't work.
First, remove the lower panel and clean the drain filter. Try to run it after that and post back your results. BE AWARE! When you open the filter there will be a good amount of water that will come out so have plenty of towels handy or a wet dry vac at the ready!

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. Good luck

LD means long drain and will require a pump replacement. The new pump is totally different from the old one so unless you are very crafty and good at figuring out puzzles, you may need to have a service company come out. I don't know what the other code means but most of the time the pump is the major problem with these units.

Thanks for using FixYa. Error 5d means too much detergent was used. Try the following procedure---
– 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. If still the problem persists, then please check the following things--
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 and replace the part that has gone bad.
Please do rate the solution if the issue is resolved or else revert for further assistance.

SOURCE: when my cabrio washer gets
This code is not 5d it is sd, the "s" just looks like a five.
Sd is displayed when the machine/motor control, by analyzing drag on the basket, detects a soap suds-lock condition, and is steady on while the control then runs a mini-clean out cycle. If the clean out cycle is unable to correct the over-sudsing problem, the cycle ends and Sd flashes in the display. This may signify:
Excessive detergent usage.
Basket cannot engage during drain step.
Mechanical friction on drive mechanism, not allowing basket to engage.

It is possible that the machine does not start off the cycle because there are errors due to feedback from the inputs. For the program to start up the main program controller must initiate the INLET/MOTOR/DRAIN pump/ valve to open up and allow each function to be driven starting from the flow of water into the drum as also the drain valve to open to exit the water at the point of the program cycle. If this does not happen then the voltage at the valve/motor/pump must be checked or the fault relates to no voltage from the controller. This means the controller is a suspect.
