Okay...I asked you a question in your other posting before I saw this one. This is a common symptom of a defective lid switch. If you try opening and closing the lid and do not hear a distinctive "clicking" sound, your lid switch may need to be replaced. Some lid switches are located on the right-hand side of the lid opening with a small slot. It is activated by a plunger on the lid itself. Make sure the plunger is not broken off. This will also keep the switch from not working. On some model washers the lid switch is located on the left-hand side, in the rear, mounted under the casing near the lid hinge. It is activated by a rod on the lid. Sometimes the rod can be adjusted if it is not making good contact with the switch. In either case, if the switch is not activated, it will allow the washer to fill and agitate, but will not start the rinse or drain cycles. If you wish to attempt the repair yourself, the switch costs about $35 and is fairly simple to replace if you follow the steps below:

First of all, unplug your washer. You will need to remove the console in order to get to the lid switch. I believe your washer has release tabs under the console at each front corner. Simply slide a putty knife straight in from the front at each corner and push in while lifting up. You should feel the release tabs push in and the console will pop up. Or, you may have a console that has removable end caps. They can be removed by gently prying up on the top of them from the rear on each side. You may have to use a small screwdriver for this. The caps should pop right off. Once removed, you will need to loosen a screw under each cap. Once you have the console loosened, carefully lift it up and lay it back over the rear panel of the washer in its resting position. Be careful not to damage the small plastic hinges that hold it in place. Now you will need to perform the following steps:

1. Under the console you will find the lid switch connector. Unplug the switch from the connector.

2. There will be two brass colored clips. You will need to remove these to remove the machine casing. Place a flat blade screwdriver straight down into the opening on top of the washer and into the groove of the clip. Push the screwdriver away from you while holding into the groove and the clip will release.

3. Open the lid of the washer and place your hand under the front rim of the opening (DO NOT grab the wash tub). Now pull the case from the frame by lifting from the back first.

You do not have to remove it all the way from the frame. Just enough to gain access to the switch. All there is to the switch is a couple of screws holding it in and a ground wire. It's a pretty easy repair job.

Once you've completed your switch installation, make sure you get the case back on the frame correctly by following these steps:

1. While looking down through the lid opening, place the front lip of the machine case UNDER the washer frame and start leaning it back onto the frame. There are four small cleats that must fit into four slots on the case or the washer will vibrate. Make sure the frame is seated properly, lean forward from the front of the washer, grasp both sides of the rear panel and pull towards the case. The rear panel should be seated and flush with the casing before inserting the retaining clips.

2. Insert the brass-colored clips into the slot on the washer rear panel first, then push straight down into the opening on the top of the washer with some force. If you have the case seated correctly, the clips will snap back in.

3. Make sure you plug the connector from the console back into the lid switch receptacle and close the console.

I hope you find this helpful. If you have any questions please let me know by posting comments.

Water and suds leaking


if you have any suds your either using too much soap or the wrong kind. does the washer drain all the water out each time? is this a new machine where you're washing your clothes in it for the first time? I've seen clothes with resisual soap in them causing over sudsing.

What's going on when the letters "sud" appear?


"SUD" is a SUDS detect error. This can be an indication of a restriction somewhere in the drainage system, a failed drain pump, you are using too much detergent, or you are using the wrong type of detergent. The following link explains the error in more detail and how to correct:

http://www.fixya.com/support/r3608687-sud_error


If these preliminary measures do not correct your problem, you may have to replace the drain pump. It does not take much to damage the pump impeller or motor. Since the error code can be generated if the drain cycle exceeds 8 minutes, if the pump is damaged and can't pump at the required volume, the error code will continue to appear until the pump is replaced. If a new drain pump is required, you can purchase one at any of the following websites: searspartsdirect.com pcappliancerepair.com appliancepartspros.com repairclinic.com If you need instructions on how to replace a drain pump, the following link explains: http://www.fixya.com/support/r3574350-replacing_the_drain_pump_in_a_front_load
If you have any questions about this repair, or need additional assistance, please let me know. I hope this helps you.

Won't complete normal cycle, but will complete heavy duty normal cycle gives errors codes of "sd", and "f21". have cleaned trap, and it works for next cycle, then errors out again. But Heavy duty works...


GOOD NEWS
actually SD means SUDS, it maens that your using too much soap,
when you clean out the rap your cleaning out the rest of the soap,
anyway, if you cut way back on your soap, i usually sugest 1 tablespoon for these models works just fine
try one empty load and no soap
watxh the suds appear in the wash cycle

Display showing alternately Fu and d making a bleeping noise wont


Sure it's not SUD ?? which means you may be using the wrong detergent for a front loader. Use HE detergent.. it has no suds.

Rinse the machine out by using the quick or express wash cycle with cold water and two cups of vinegar in the soap dispenser.

Once those suds are gone, it may take a while, ie a couple of vinegar rinses, it should work just fine.

Sud code appeared


If you have a front-load washer then you probably have put too much soap in or not used "he" soap. Front loader use very little water and need low-sudsing soap. Most all brands now sell this "h.e" soap. What has happened is that suds have travelled up the tube to your pressure switch and have told the washer's computer that there are too many suds in the machine. The machine thinks that there is water in the tub even it there is not. You can either let it sit for a day or two or try unplugging it and then run a few hot rinses, without any soap, until you don't see anymore suds in the tub.

Does not appear to be cycling water or pumping


You have created a suds lock condition with the wrong soap.
Take a shop vac if possible and vacuum out all water and suds. No shop vac, bail and wipe with a towel.
Then fill with COLD water from the faucet. Start the was cycle a few seconds. Then DRAIN. Repeat with cold water, wash then drain several times until the suds are clear.
You will know the suds are clearing each time you refill with COLD water and start the cycle. It will begin to sound like it is washing and pumping rather than humming.

Spinning and draining does not work, F error or sometimes Sud


Sud means you using to much soap and the f code means soap is locking the drain pump up and wont allow unit to drain and spin.
