That is a SUDS LOCK. Open the front panel to access the drain pump filter. Clean it out. Run several cycles without any detergent to clear out the soap being retained in the washer. If you are not using H.E. soap, switch to it. Use the amount of detergent specified on the package. Front load machines will not work correctly with excessive soap and the laundry gets no cleaner with more soap.Also use high water levels not medium or low. Use hot water whenever possible to reduce the suds residue.

5d fault what does it mean?


The 5d (or Sd) error code indicate that the control detected a suds lock or overdose of detergent during the drain or spin phases of the cycle. This is usually caused by overuse of detergent. It can also be caused by using regular detergent instead of HE (High Efficiency) detergent. After the excessive suds dissipate, you can normally clear the fault code and then run a drain/spin to finish the load of laundry.

If you detect no excessive suds, this fault code could be caused by a clogged drain system or a failed water level pressure switch.

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.

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.

Error code Sd (or 5d)


It means Suds Lock(Overdose of Detergent Detected During The Wash Cycle).If suds are detected continuously by the pressure switch during the drain or spin phases,the washer will fill 4 litres of water and during 5 minutes the unit will rest without tumbling,the water will be drained and it will try to spin or drain again.

If too much detergent was used:
– 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.
1. Check the drain hose and make sure it is not plugged or kinked.
2. Unplug washer or disconnect power.
3. Check wire harness connections to the drain pump,pressure switch and Central Control Unit(CCU).
4. Check/clean drain pump filter of foreign objects.
5. Plug in washer or reconnect power.
6. Check drain pump.
7. Check the pressure switch.
8. Verify CCU operation by running a Diagnostic Test.

Cabrio won't spin


F then 50 flashes when the motor rotor position sensor (RPS) senses no rotation. ➔ Does basket turn freely? If not, make sure bottom shipping pack has been removed. Determine cause of friction
its SD not 5D
Sd is displayed when the machine/motor control, by analyzing drag on the basket, detects a suds-lock condition, and is steady on while the control then runs a mini-clean out cycle. If the clean out cycle is unable to correct the over-sudsing problem, the cycle ends and Sd flashes in the display. This may signify: ➔ Load is bunched or twisted around agitator. ➔ Excessive detergent usage. ➔ Basket cannot engage during drain step. ➔ Mechanical friction on drive mechanism, not allowing basket to engage.
