I had exactly the same problem with the same machine... I've seen a few people on various forums with the same problem. The problem on mine turned out to be just the EMI filter located next to the power cord inlet. I just bypassed it for now until I can get a replacement.

    It turned out this only temporarily fixed the problem... the real issue was the motor brushes. Seems bypassing the filter made it somewhat more immune to the noise. New brushes found on ebay for a couple of dollars, they are 1/2" x 1/5" x 1-3/5" and require soldering. Will see how it goes when they arrive!

Unplug your washing machine and then you will be able to get the door open and the clothes out. You may need to leave it off for awhile to get it to work but make sure you have a bucket ready to catch the water coming out.

Have a lhw0050pq4 ft loader washer (whirlpool) 5 years old little use. in 5th wheel trailer and it seems to lose its place in the cycle can you help?


The control board will need to be replaced. It is located on the top, right hand side of the unit as you look at it from the front. Remove the screws on the top panel, slide it back to remove it. You will see the board. Here is the board to order.

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.

Suds will not spin out. What can I do?


This machine is designed to use HE detergent which is low sudsing if used in the right amount. If the wrong detergent or too much is used sudsing and possibly an error code of SUDS may occur.

You can run a rinse/spin cycle to help clear the suds, you might have to run this cycle several times until the suds are gone.

If the machine is locked out and will not allow you to start a cycle, try unplugging the machine for 30 seconds then plugging back in. Turn the power on and push cancel/drain. This should let you take the clothes out and start the rinse/spin clean out.

Once you have removed all the suds I would recommend running a cleaner such as smelly washer or Affresh through the machine to remove any hidden residue from the excess soap.

Always use HE detergent in a front loader

Loud banging noise during rinse


Most noises from a washing machine occur during the rinse or spin cycle. If you hear loud thumping during the spin, the load of clothes may have become unbalanced. Stop the washer and redistribute the clothes, then re-start it. Repeat these steps if necessary.This will solve your problem.
