Sd is displayed when the machine/motor control, by analyzing drag on the basket, detects a 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.
Thanks for using FixYa. Error Ld or dl means long drain and it flashes when the water level will not change even after the drain pump is on. To resolve this issue you’ll need to check the drain hose and the drain pump for any blockages. Also check if the pump is running fine and replace the part that has gone bad.Please do rate the solution if the issue is resolved or post a comment for further assistance.
“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. To check the drain pump, click on the following link for step-by-step instructions
ok, sounds like you should be seeing an error code flashing in the display with the lights. this will be an F followed by a number. or letter abbrev. like dL With the pump starting with a new cycle started and draining but you get this light sequence (error) I believe the problem would be that it is seeing water in the tub and not seeing it leave, like a pressure sw problem.
