SOURCE: What does the error code 5d mean on a Kenmore HE

The error you have displayed is actually "SD", which is a SUDS detect error. This usually 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:

If you have any questions about this repair, or need additional assistance, please let me know. I hope this helps you.

NOTE: 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.

SOURCE: 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!

SOURCE: what does 5d code on my Kenmore Elite Oasis HE top

"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

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

How to fix code 5d


The 5d error on most front-load washers is a Suds error. This can be caused by using too much detergent, a non-high efficiency washer detergent, foreign objects in the pump filter, or a problem with the pump or water pressure switch.

First look in the window of the machine while it's running, do you see a lot of suds? If so, remove the clothing from the machine. Then run the washer while it's empty without additional detergent. You may need to do this a few times to rinse the excess detergent. Then try washing the removed clothes again without adding more detergent to clean them.

Next, open the washer and look for the pump filter. Remove any foreign objects. Look at the impeller and the pump and make sure that nothing is in that section of the washer.

To check if the pressure switch is sending faulty information to the main control of the washer, unplug the washer. Remove the top and find the pressure switch (probably on the left rear of the machine). Remove the hose from the bottom of the switch and blow into it. If the hose is clear, then the pressure switch should be replaced first.

If you add a comment with the model number of the HE2 Plus washer, I will be able to provide the parts diagram showing the pump and filter. I'll also be able to point to replacement parts. Most Kenmore appliance parts diagrams are available at searspartsdirect.com .

I hope this helps.

My washer is displaying a 5d code on panel, what does this mean?


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.

Just received error code 5D Kenmore HE 2Plus Front Loading Automatic Washer


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)

I have a Kenmore HE 2 Plus washing machine model 8540912 with F21, F33 & 5D error codes. Can I twist and remove the water pump filter on this unit to check for clogs? Thanks.


The F33 error code indicates a pump drive system error. If the pump ohms out correctly & the harness is secure I recommend replacing the CCU (central control unit).
Please see the following image provided for instructions.

Remember to disconnect power to the washer before attempting access.
