I have researched this problem and went to Whirlpool's web-site and it is actually not a 5, but an S. I thought the same thing so dont worry. Error code S d is the error code for too many suds in the machine which will either stop the washer in the middle of the cycle or it will complete the cycle and display it at the end letting you know it did not get all the soap out. My guess is that you have used a soap or fabric softener that is either not HE or you are putting too much soap or fabric softener in. It is ok to use soap that is not HE, but make sure that you only use a half a cap full because this soap has bubbling agents in it and would cause the S d error code. I actually use a half a cap of HE soap as well. Think about it, your HE washer uses less than half the water, but the soap companies kept the same same size cap on the soap bottle. I am thinking the soap companies are trying to sell more soap. Anyways, I digress, here is a link to the Whirlpool site where I found the error code: http://whirlpool.custhelp.com/app/answers/detail/a_id/2948/kw/error%20code/r_id/108281/sno/1

Hope that helps!

I have showing 5d does not spin what does it mean


This code indicates that excessive detergent suds occurred during the cycle. The washer will not be able to spin out water with the excess suds. When "Sd" is displayed, the washer automatically extends the rinse time to remove the excess suds. During this time, the washer pauses the wash action and adds water for additional rinsing. This pause allows the bubbles in the suds to break. This process is necessary and may occur several times to eliminate the suds.
Concentrated detergents labeled 2x and higher will require a small amount of detergent based on load size. Always follow the manufacturer's recommendations.

I have a Minolta Maxxum 5D which I really like. I take a lot of pictures outside with my job. I have a telephoto lens and a regular lense as well. I switch lenses a good bit depending on the shot. ...


It can occur if the contacts on the lens where they meet the contacts on the camera body need cleaning. Try a cotton swab lightly dampened with rubbing alcohol.

Error message 5d on kenmore he2 fron load


Hi mankin1,
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.
