An easy Fix. Take off the kick panel, 3 screws 1/4 inch. Make sure you have a shop vac ready or a lot of towels as there will be some water. Always disconnect power to washer and dryer, and turn off water to washer. Your filter most likely is clogged with change, screws, lint, and other household stuff that we leave in our pockets! Unscrew the cap on the filter, easy to find, since you have the kick panel off! Take everything out of the filter. Take your shop vac and **** out remaining stuff in hose. Also, **** up any water that has leaked in and around the washer. Screw the cap back on hand tight, put the kick panel back on, turn your water back on, plug it in and there you go! Maybe takes an hour and saves you a repair bill. If you are not comfortable with this procedure then call a maintenance person that is qualified.

Sud= The unit has sensed there is too many suds in the unit it will
flush and pump out for 5 min and restart on its own..This is caused by
too much soap use..
From the book :
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
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 or any

This symptom characterizes a problem with a faulty motor control unit (MCU). It has been found that a fault in the MCU can lead to erratic operation of the machine with or without error codes being flashed. It can be verified by isolating the MCU, that is disconnecting it from the central control unit (CCU). If the machine seems to work fine with the MCU disconnected except motor powered functions, the MCU is indeed the problem and the only viable solution is replacing it.
Unplug the machine or disconnect power then remove the three screws from the rear of the machine top cover. Pull back on the cover and release the tabs in the console from the slots in the cover then lift the cover off the unit.
Locate the CCU then disconnect the MCU harnesses marked MS2 and MI3.
Reconnect power then start the machine. Replace the MCU if the machine seems to work fine except motor powered functions. Otherwise, let us know for further advice.
