SOURCE: kenmore front load HE will not drain. gives error

the error is SD. it means Suds. you use too much soap or the wrong kind. Must be HE. Remove top and find the pressure switch. Its white with a clear hose going to it. Unplug the hose and blow through it. This will clear suds from the line and you should hear bubbling in the tub. Re install hose and top. Run machine EMPTY with about a quarter cup of bleach and a little soap to rinse out tub and pump. Do this on a WHITE cycle. After this, it should be fine.

SD is Slow Drain.


If you experience a problem where the washer does not drain properly or the drain pump makes excessive noise, here’s the information you need to check the drain pump:

Symptom: PUMP IS RUNNING, BUT NOT DRAINING PROPERLY.

1. Unplug the washer while servicing inside the unit.
2. Remove the lower kick panel under the door by removing the three 7mm screws under the bottom edge of the panel. HINT: Use a couple of blocks of wood to prop up the front feet of the washer to gain better access to the screws. Once the screws are removed the panel should drop down, and then pull off. If the panel becomes stuck, a slight tap on either side will dislodge it.
3. Locate the drain pump. It will be located directly under the wash tub (it is the only pump this washer has).
4. There is an access removal cover on the pump that can be removed to clean out the trap. BEFORE doing this, it is strongly recommended that you remove all residual water from the wash tub & drain line or you will have about a gallon or so inside your washer and on the floor to clean up.
5. Here’s a helpful way of quickly removing the residual water. If you own a wet/dry shop vac, remove the drain hose from the standpipe at the wall and pull a vacuum with the shop vac. This will empty the wash tub, pump and drain lines. If you don’t own a shop vac, grab a bunch of old towels and open the access on the pump slowly so that it comes out at a trickle. Allow the towels to soak up the majority of the water. Close the access and stop the water if you need to get additional towels.
6. Open the pump access and remove once you have all the water drained. Check the drain pump for foreign objects and debris. Check the pump impeller and make sure there’s nothing caught in it. Items as small as toothpicks or cotton swabs have been known to stop this pump from working.
7. Clean out the pump thoroughly and reinstall the access cover. Make sure the cover is snug, but do not over tighten.
8. Place the drain hose back in the standpipe (IMPORTANT – DO NOT FORGET!).
9. With the bottom panel still off, plug the washer back in and select the following on the operator console – DRAIN SPIN, NO SPIN, and then press any button under OPTIONS 4 times (it must be the same button). “C00” will show on the console display as the washer begins diagnostics mode.
10. Check the drain pump for leaks as the washer fills. The pump is gravity filled and will hold water even it is not pumping. Allow washer to run through diagnostics until it begins the wash tub tumble cycle.
11. At this point, you can stop the diagnostics procedure by pressing PAUSE/CANCEL 2 times. The drain pump energizes and the washer will begin to drain.
12. If the drain pump works normal and there are no leaks detected, reinstall the bottom panel and tighten screws.


NOTE: It is normal to have residual water left inside the wash tub under the wash basket. This is why it is important to leave the door ajar when not in use so this water does not become sour.

SOURCE: Kenmore Elite Oasis HE top loader stopped near the

"F21" (AKA SD) is a Long (SLOW) Drain error (LD). If the drain time exceeds 8 minutes this error code will be displayed. In addition, a "SUDS" error may also be displayed. This may be an indication of a drain pump problem and/or clog in the drain line. You will need to check the following:


1.First, attempt to unplug the washer for at LEAST 30 minutes to reset the Central Control Unit (CCU). Sometimes this is all that is required to correct momentary glitches with the unit. If the error code returns, proceed to step 2.
2.Check the drain hose to make sure it is not kinked or clogged.
3.Check the electrical connections to the pump and ensure the pump is running.
4.Remove the drain pump filter and check for foreign objects and/or debris.

If the above procedures do not correct the problem, it is recommended by the manufacturer to replace the drain pump.

SOURCE: Just received error code 5D

Hello, welcome to fixya.

Based on your post I understand you have a "SD" error problem (looks like a 5D in the digital display) with a Kenmore washer, the error means an excessive drain time or excessive suds was detected as you may or may not already know.

If you follow the link to my solution to this error designed specifically for "do-it-yourselfers" you should be fixed up in no time. (It's much quicker for me than pasting or retyping the complete solution several hundred times, that's how common this is)

Thank you for visiting fixya for your washer inquiry. Please take a moment to rate my assistance both here and on my tip link and leave a brief testimony.

Regards,

Macmarkus :)

I have a whirlpool duet front loader I have had error code 5d appear and the machine has stopped what should I do as the door is locked and I can't remove my clothes


The 5D really stands for SD (SuDs) and is an oversudsing code. The machine shuts off. Try unplugging the unit for about 30 minutes. Then plug it back in and set control to drain. This should release the door.

This alarm may also occur if the drain time takes very long time. Try washing without soap to clean the machine. Use HE soap and use the correct amount. Don't think more is better.

Error code 5d


Ok the Sd error code (not 5D) indicates that the unit has detected too much suds and has shut down until the error is cleared.

Try running a load with no soap and that should clear the problem.

If that does not solve the problem, then you will need the service manual to perform further diagnostics to the unit.

Here is a link to the manual.

My kenmore washer is stopping constantly and has error codes like 5d, rL, F21 and some other codes. We checked everything the manual says to and it all seems fine. What is the problem?


That 5d is a clue. Too much detergent, the wrong detergent, or detergent in wrong dispenser can cause the 5d which is suds overdose. The F-21 is from banging on the touchpad in frustration!
Keypad error! Take the base panel off and find the tech sheet behind it. The tech sheet will give error codes and what to try. I have an HE washer service manual and some repair photos HERE

I have a whirlpool duet 2 1/2 years old I t has started to make a loud buzzing hum sound (that sounds like old top loader mixing valve malfunction?) and has error code 5d what is this ?


Actually, your error code is "Sd" and indicates that the washer thinks that there are too many suds in the basket / drum.

Your buzzing sound is also likely to be the water inlet valves, common to top loaders as well, as the washer is adding additional water to rinse excessive suds out. Check your supply hoses for kinks, connections for scale buildup inside, as well as the screens on the inlet ports of the washer itself.


A kinked or restricted drain hose can also throw an Sd error code as well.

Kenmore HE2t washer - error code 5d


5d is a definitely a the code for a plugged discharge. We removed the lower access panel and discovered a virtual treasure: $12.50 in quarters, nickels, dimes and pennies, a pen, a pencil, collar stays, 10 bobby-pins, 3 barrettes, a elastic headband, a draw string, a box cutter, 3 washers, 3 broken zipper parts, a elastic waist band. Amazing it took all to trigger a 5d error code. Hope this helps!
