This is actually a SD code meaning to many suds. The machine will drain out mid-cycle when you push stop. You can then start the load over without adding any additional soap. Make sure you use the recommended amount of HE soap.

Cabrio washer 5d error code


chances are the 5d error code you see is actually sd. it is supposed to signal excessive suds in the water but it seems to show at other times as well. but regardless of the code and depending on you mechanical abilities, remove the center cap on top of the agitator, remove the bolt and remove the agitator. some force may be needed to get the agitator off the shaft, keep equal pressure 180 degrees apart and work around the base lifting the agitator, gently rock the agitator as you lift. when it comes off take the screws from the gear hub assy out, probably six screws. when the cap is lifted off you should find a small gear, pull it off the shaft, clean and look at the teeth inside. if worn, get replacement part. put back together and run a rinse and spin cycle or similar to see if it spins . hopefully it will solve your problem.

5d keeps popping up on my washer & the clothes are soaked, its not spinning the water out.


Hello & Welcome to FixYa

Error code 5d/Sd means suds have been detected. To solve this problem you have to take the bottom front panel apart and then clean the drain filter pump assembly completely, make sure the washer is unplugged before working on it. Please get back to me if you have any other questions.

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

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!

We keep getting the 5d error code. what could


The 5d (or Sd) error code indicate that the control detected a suds lock or overdose of detergent during the drain or spin phases of the cycle. This is usually caused by overuse of detergent. It can also be caused by using regular detergent instead of HE (High Efficiency) detergent. After the excessive suds dissipate, you can normally clear the fault code and then run a drain/spin to finish the load of laundry. If you detect no excessive suds, this fault code could be caused by a clogged drain system or a failed water level pressure switch. hope this helps....

Kenmore HE2 front load error 5d


It is possible that instead of 5d that you have a SD. The SD error is usually form an excess of suds in the washer. In most cases you can run the machine through a couple rinse cycles and clear that right up. If that does not work then you will need to clean out the drain and your pump filter. The filer is located behind the bottom panel and you just unscrew it from the pump. If infact you had a 5D error then I am sorry for misinforming you, I have just never heard of a 5 D and I have been services them for years. I really hope this helped you, good luck.
