Hi!

For a top loader, a general rule of thumb is to lay clothes loosely inside the washer until they reach the top of the agitator. For a front loader, fill it until it's full, with minimal compression of the clothes.

Please do rate this solution as FixYa and revert for further assistance.

Thanks

Rl on the control panel


The "rl" (remove load) error code appears when you are running the "Clean Washericon1.png" cycle. You must not have a load of clothes in the washer during this cycle. Remove the clothes from the drum, and restart the cycle. The "Sud" error indicates that the detergent is over-sudsing. The Duet washer automatically combats this by reducing the amount of suds in the washing machine. Let the washer finish the suds-reduction steps. Use less detergent during the next wash cycle.

Tip

Whirlpool duet washer F02 or F21 error code.


This error code indicates that drain times are longer than expected.

Make sure the drain hose is not kinked or clogged. Straighten the hose for adequate water flow. Remove any blockage from the drain hose, drainpipe or utility sink. Use the U-shaped drain hose form on the drain hose, and secure the drain hose.

Use only HE High Efficiency detergent. Using non-HE detergent, or more than the manufacturer's recommended amount of detergent, can cause excessive suds. The excess suds will slow or stop the removal of water from the washer.

Concentrated detergents labeled 2x and higher will require a small amount of detergent based on load size. Always follow the manufacturer's recommendations.

Temporary fixes:

To remove the error display, press Pause/Cancel twice.

If Pause/Cancel does not work:
  1. Unplug the washer or disconnect the power for one minute.
  2. Plug in the washer or reconnect the power.
  3. Re-select the cycle and press Start.

Suds message


The suds message usually means that there was too much detergent in the machine for the load. Remember to use a HE detergent and use the recommended amount. For a small load, use just enough detergent to reach the minimum detergent line (if there is one). Otherwise, you should use about half of the usual amount of detergent for a small load compared to a large load.

Usually the washer will add an additional rinse to remove the extra suds. If you notice detergent is still on your clothes, run the load through the washer on the same cycle without adding more detergent.

The manual for several versions of the Whirlpool Duet GHW9150P are available from GE: https://www.whirlpool.com/webapp/wcs/stores/servlet/OCManualsLiteratureSearchResultView?catalogId=10561&langId=-1&storeId=10211&krypto=5QgxQhneFlibuKNJvC4qU4ramPrjJ75r2vuMTp0sZ%2F7cWgUj2a5ZKg%3D%3D&ddkey=http:OCManualsLiteratureSearchResultView . Alternatively, start here: http://www.whirlpool.com/owners-center/owners-center-homepage.content.html and enter the model number and click the right arrow.

I hope this helps.

It flash's SUDs during the cycle.what does it mean and what can i do to stop it from doing it


The SUD message indicates the control or pressure switch senses suds in the water. Run the machine empty with hot water only to clear any soap residue out of the machine. Cut back on the amount of soap used and use only HE detergent in the machine.

LED says SUD


Indicates "too much suds". Be sure to use only detergent with "HE" on label. Regular detergent sudses too much in a front load. Also, be sure to not use too much.

Read out says SUD and we have suds coming out from under washer.


This indicates that you have a bad pump. Suds coolect in your pump and takes it out after a period of too much detergent being used in your washer.
