You are using the wrong soap. SD means SUDS and the foam takes for ever to go away. That would also cause a leak issue.

Where do I find the MCU on my Kenmore h2plus washer?


  • 1 Check for any error codes in the Estimated Time Remaining display. The code "F20" indicates a water inlet problem. Press the Stop button twice to end the cycle and check that the faucets are turned on fully. Take a look at the inlet hoses. Close the valves and unscrew them. Look for any clogging on the screen and clear it.

  • 2 "F21" indicates a draining problem. Again, press the Stop button twice and take a look at the drain hose. Make sure it's not kinked, frozen or clogged.
  • 3 "SD" on the display indicates the machine has gone into its Suds Routine. The Suds Routine removes excess suds so that the garments rinse properly. It's not a problem, but can be an indication you've used a non-high-efficiency powder. Just let the SD routine complete and the draining will continue.

  • 4 Make sure the washer is level if it gets noisy or vibrates too much. Use the leveling feet to adjust the level. They screw and unscrew for adjustment. Make sure the shipping bolts were removed from the back of the machine if the machine gets too noisy. See the "Removing Transport System" section in the instruction manual.
  • 5 Check that you are using HE detergent if you spot leaks. Check that the fill hoses are tight and that the drain hose is secured to the drain pipe. Check that the drain isn't clogged.
  • 6 Make sure the load is balanced if the washer won't drain or spin--or if water remains in the washer. Redistribute the load.
  • Buy Custom Car parts.

    What does SD error code mean on Kenmore HE 2 plus front loading automatic washer


    Hi

    Error code SD/5d means LONG DRAIN. This error appears when the drain time exceeds 8 minutes and the water valves turn off. After 4 minutes the "Sd" error will be displayed, and then 4 minutes later the F21 error code will be displayed. Press PAUSE/CANCEL two times to clear the display. Please Check the drain hose and make sure it is not plugged or kinked. If the drain hose if fine then unplug the washer and check the electrical connections at the pump and make sure the pump is running. Check the drain pump filter for foreign objects. To access the drain pump and filter remove the front kick panel and trace the drain hose to the bottom of the washer, drain pump would be located there. If you are not able to access it, then replace the back panel as well. Plug in washer or reconnect power. If the issue is still not resolved then you would need to replace the drain pump. Hope this helps...please post back for further assistance.

    May tag Neptune showing codes


    Error codes appear when there are problems with the door, the inflow and drainage of water and the motor.

    Do
    Your Maytag Neptune washer displays the "do" help code when the washing machine is trying to start a cycle, but the door is open or not locked properly. If this message is displayed, close the door securely and restart the washing cycle.

    FL
    The "FL" code indicates that the washing machine was unable to lock the door after you closed it. Open and close the door tightly, then restart the washing cycle.

    Sd
    The "Sd" code indicates that you have added too much detergent to the washing machine and your laundry has too many suds. The machine will stop displaying this code if it has successfully run the suds recovery cycle, which removes the excess suds from the wash load. If the code remains, reduce the amount of detergent in the load. Use less detergent for similar loads of laundry in the future.

    PF
    The "PF" code indicates that a power failure has occurred. Restart the wash cycle. If the code still appears, check that the washing machine is still plugged in to the electrical outlet.

    Nd
    The "nd" code indicates that your Maytag Neptune is not draining as it should. Check that the drain hose isn't kinked and that the stand pipe isn't clogged. If you find either of these problems, fix them before restarting the washing cycle.

    LO
    The "LO" code appears when the washing machine has finished the selected wash cycle, but cannot unlock the door. Verify that the door is closed properly, push the "Off" button, and wait two minutes. The door should unlock and the error code will disappear. If the error code remains, unplug the washing machine, wait two minutes and plug it back into the electrical outlet.

    Lr
    The "Lr" code indicates that the washing machine's motor is not running as it should. Have your Maytag Neptune washing machine serviced by a certified Maytag repair professional. Maytag Neptune Priority One Service: (888) 462-9824

    NF
    The "nF" code appears when the washing machine has tried to fill with water and has failed. Verify that the inlet hoses aren't kinked and that the faucets are fully open.

    Od
    The "od" code appears when you must open the washer door. The Maytag Neptune washer requires that you open the door between cycles.

    Other Codes
    * If your Maytag Neptune washing machine displays any codes that are not listed above, contact Maytag Neptune Priority One Service for assistance. Maytag Neptune Priority One Service: (888) 462-9824

    What does code F mean


    F is part of a system fault code. There should be additional characters (numbers) in addition to the F.

    Here's what I get from a Cabrio Owner's Manual if there are numbers after the F:

    F## code (F-type error code) appears in display

    System error code. Press START/PAUSE once to clear the code. Then press START/PAUSE again to restart washer. If code appears again, call for service.

    I called Whirlpool at 1-800-442-1111, and according to customer support the manufacturer intentionally no longer provides descriptions for F codes (though there are still a few owners manuals that will describe something like F21 = Long Drain). Check to see if your owner's manual provides any F code help in the troubleshooting section.

    Generally, what I was told is that F codes indicate customers need help from a technician. Not always completely true, and really not very helpful--especially if you want to attempt to avoid scheduling service.

    Since there are numerous F## codes, please provide the specific code number if you desire further assistance.
    ----
    Here are letter codes Whirlpool provided in the owners manual (copying from a PDF works poorly):

    -

    oL (overloaded)

    appears in display

    Load too large. If an overload is detected, the washer will drain any water and

    detergent in the washer. Remove several items and add HE
    detergent. Close lid and press START/PAUSE.
    -

    uL (unbalanced load)

    appears in display

    Load not balanced. The washer is

    running a load-balance correction

    routine.

    Allow the machine to continue. If the dial is flashing and the

    machine has stopped, redistribute the load, close the lid, and
    press START/PAUSE.
    -

    LF (too long to fill)

    appears in display

    Washer taking too long to fill.

    Drain extends more than

    4.5" (114 mm) into standpipe.

    Check plumbing for correct drain hose installation. Use drain

    hose form and attach securely to drainpipe or tub. Do not tape
    over drain opening. See "Installation Instructions".
    -

    Ld (too long to drain

    water ) appears in

    display

    Washer taking too long to drain

    water. Drain extends more than

    Check plumbing for correct drain hose installation. Use drain

    hose form and attach securely to drainpipe or tub. Do not tape

    Lower drain hose if the end is higher than 96" (2.4 m) above

    the floor. Remove any clogs from drain hose. See "Installation

    If you get the FL how do you get the door to open??


    1. Your Maytag Neptune washing machine displays error codes, also called "help codes," to identify specific problems with your washer. Once you close your Maytag Neptune's door, the machine locks the door, goes through the selected wash cycles and unlocks the door when the laundry is finished. Error codes appear when there are problems with the door, the inflow and drainage of water and the motor.

    I was washing sheets and "sd" appeared. Now I had to unplug it to get it to stop running.


    "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.


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