I work for an appliance company in the service department, and what this really means is that you could have a suds build up in your machine, or that you used too much soap on this particular cycle. If starting over does not work, you can buy a product called washer magic at almost any store and it will clean your machine out. Also, running vinegar through the machine will make any suds dissapate.

This is the "suds" error code. Apparently it means that the machine has detected a high level of suds in the washer, so it temporarilty stalls to let the suds die down. You can fix this by starting the cycle over, and just use less soap in the future. It happens a lot when you are washing towels for some reason...

I tried to put it through again without soap, same thing happened again, SEVERAL times. The only thing I have been able to do is just turn the power off then start it up again on the spin only cycle and get it out of there! It seems to do this more frequently now and of course it is just off warranty. There has to be something wrong here. I don't use a high sudsing soap and I don't use very much. It doesn't happen only when I wash towels.

I'm getting the same issue with my washer....started recently and is getting worse before it gets better....used to happen once ever so often and now it's every wash. I'll try the vinegar and see what happens but it is really getting annoying!

Can you tell me what e6 on the display means as the machine wont work when this shows


Not sure of the make/model, but with Samsung washing machines that usually means 2 things. If you get it when entering the spin mode and the system stops and displays the code, the water heater is heating too quickly. Press the power button once to clear the code and finish the cycle before repair.

If you get the E6 during the spin cycle that can mean a problem with the main controller board.

You can keep resetting to get past that code but if you continue to get it during a spin cycle or part of the laundry where hot water isn't used, then usually that controller board is bad.

Good luck.

My washer is showing a f32 ,f71 codes what does that mean


Sd Error Suds Detected (Stored Error Code F71) Did you use regular detergent?
Regular or hand-washing detergents are not recommended for this washer. Use only High Efficiency ("HE") detergent.
Did you add too much detergent?
Always measure detergent. Follow detergent manufacturer's directions. If excessive suds are detected, the washer will display this code while running a suds reduction correction routine at the end of the wash cycle. The suds reduction routine removes extra suds and assures proper rinsing of your garments. If the code remains and the wash cycle dial is ?ashing after the recovery routine has stopped, re-select your desired cycle using cold water. Press START. Do not add detergent.


Ld Error Washer is taking too long to drain water from the washtub
(Stored Error Code F32) Check the following:
Is the drain hose or pump clogged?
Is the drain hose higher than 96" to reach the drainpipe?
Is the Drain Pump Running?
Is the pressure transducer hose kinked, disconnected, or punctured?
Press PAUSE/CANCEL to clear display.

What does it mean when SD is showing on the display


The Sd (5d) error code is displayed on this washer when the machine control board detects a suds-lock condition by analyzing the drag on the washer basket. It will be displayed while the control runs a mini-clean out cycle. If this clean out cycle is unable to remove the excessive suds and correct the condition, then the cycle will end and Sd will flash in the display.

Make sure that you are using HE (High Efficiency) detergent in the appropriate quantity in your washer. If you detect excessive suds in the washer, this likely caused your problem.

Another cause could be a toy or other item under the washer that would cause friction on the drive mechanism. If you do not see excessive suds, check for this type of problem under the washer.

I have a Premium WD602 washing machine which is stopping halfway through the rinse cycle and displaying the F02 error message. How can I fix it?


Have you cleaned the filter ? it is located at the bottom, right hand side at the front. You can't see it unless you remove the plynth. It simply unscrews so you can clean it.

Mine was also showing F02 and wouldn't complete the cycle. After cleaning the filter it was fine.

My washer stops in the middle of the cycle and displays F-1 and after I have to set it on the rinse / drain cycle to complete. Today for the first time it also displayed 5d at the end of the cycle.


5d or Sd means too much detergent was used. Try the following

Run the unit through a RINSE/SPIN cycle.
Run a NORMAL cycle without adding any detergent.

This should clear the unit of the excess detergent.
