I would check for a cold water supply problem since cold water is supposed to be what is used in the rinse cycle. If only hot water is being supplied it would explain the suds thing. I would take a look at the water inlet valve and would pay particular attention to the cold water side. Unplug the machine and remove the supply hoses. Check the small metal screens inside the openings on the water inlet valve and make sure they are clear of rust or debris. Next, check the solenoids using a multimeter or ohmmeter and test for continuity. A lack of continuity would indicate a faulty solenoid and the water inlet valve assy will need to be replaced. I will attach a photo for reference. Really sorry for your trouble and I hope this helped. Best wishes.

It move to rinse to spin then back to rinse


If you use too much detergent and get a lot of suds, some models rinse again to remove the suds. It will display "SUDS", normally at the end of the cycle.

Spinning cycle


Keeping in mind that the soap & bleach gets dispensed into your wash on the second to last rinse cycle and that most all rinse cycles are in cold water. Is your cold water valve screen plugged causing your washer to rinse poorly? Are you using the HE detergent? If not maybe the washer is sudsing up to much and having a hard time rinsing all the suds and bleach out and leaving the clothes soapy.

Fill the washer up with no clothes in it on a cold/cold wash setting does it take a long time to fill the washer up? Also when it is full and agitating is there suds in the washer?

Last suggestion is if the drain is hose is a lot higher than the top of the washer it might have a hard time draining out all of the soap water before the next load

Sud error code


I found that mine was having a sud error. I removed the lower front panel and removed the filter. It was full of lint and loose change. I reinstalled the filter and haven't had a problem since. On a side note I found something interesting laying inside. A service tech guide wich stated to do exactly what I had done.

The water is still soapy after many rinses. I am using very little soap


I am having the identical problem with a Maytag washer! The first 2 or 3 rinses are effective somewhat, (but not like the Whirlpool I had for 22 years) and I think, "one more for fabric softener"---but suddenly I have a full inch of bubbly white, white, very soapy suds! Picture half a washer of water with a cup of tide! It's that soapy and I cannot figure out where the soap is coming from! Tonight, I had not even used a regular soapy detergent in the previous 15 cycles, having switched to an eco detergent from Costco and used little. I even ran a few cycles with no laundry and no detergent--no soap then!

Btw, the washer has only cold water rinses--I had not noticed the tiny print on the front of the washer--or I'd never have bought it. We learned in fabric class that icy cold water (it's snow melt here in Oregon) shocks fabric as badly as hot water, and it fails to get soap out as well. And everything comes out scratchy stiff like cardboard, and hurts my face--skin even peeled before I began opening lid to check on rinse cycle. I got rashes and dry skin from all the soap and ice water...until I began doing 7 or 8 rinse cycles on the items like washclothes, towels etc. Clothing gets hardly any soap, or I hand wash it now--am exhausted and want new machine! Can't sell this junk tho.

Anyway, so the way I rinse with warm or cool (not melted snow) water is I stop the washer and start over the wash cycle to get warmer water for the rinse. Then, I move the dial to extra rinse cycle for the rest of the rinse, after the water has filled, so it cannot go on to do an ice water rinse after competing the "wash" cycle that's really a rinse cycle with no soap.

I would hurt the person who designed this washer! It seems to add soapy water back into the rinse on the 4th rinse cycle! Sounds bizarre, but I always think that everything is finally rinsed ok and one more with a little fabric softener will do it, but when I look inside to add the downey, there's an inch of suds on top! I don't have suds like that on my wash cycles! It's bizarre...I've wondered if neighbor's suds are coming in, or am I haunted?

Last week, I hand-rinsed my washcloths and kitchen towels and put them in washer for the spin cycle, at end of the rinse cycle, just to get water out of them for dryer.... To my dismay, the spray of water while spinning (have no idea why washers add icy snow melt to my warm rinsed laundry during the final spin but they all do, you can hear the spray) was soapier than my original wash cycle--which has a teensy bit of suds which is gone in a minute or 2! Honestly, my washcloths etc were fully soapy again! I'd rinsed them so well that immersing them in warm water left the water clear and clean, but after the spray, they were just as soapy as after the earlier rinse cycles that had the inch of suds... I had to take everything out and spend another hour hand rinsing and wringing befor the dryer....

I have taken to using pint-sized tupperware to get the suds off the top rather than letting it go into the laundry or washer. I skim it out and put it down the kitchen sink. It's so soapy I'd have to do dozens of rinse cycles to rinse it out, so I skim it out manually. So new soap must keep getting into the washer! It also does not seem to matter whether the wash is full or half. Tonight the previous rinse cycle had been full, and pretty clean. But when I o;pened the next one to add fabric softener, it was only half full of water, and an inch or soap suds. I had wondered if the soap was outside the basket, and came in through the holes, once water got that high, but no. Does not matter. And I had wondered if it was caused by suction from stopping the rinse cycle during spin...but I went load after load for 10 days, never stopping a cycle early and it still put all that soap in the 4th rinse cycle. Or in the 3 cycle's spin at the end of rinse, when it sprays water on the spinning laundry.... This is a horror. Maytag ignores my emails. The handyman says new washers are terrible and wants nothing to do with it. I wish I'd paid whatever it took to fix my old whirlpool. 22 years and never an issue ever, never more than 3 rinses and then only a 3d because I'd used double soap to get out dirt from gardening or road trips like Santa Fe in the winter when shih tzus got covered with red clay dirt used on snow and ice--that stuff is lethal! Normally I added fabric softener on 2d rinse cycle and things were so clean. Now things are not clean, come out ripped, or with pilling like they aged 10 years in one night. So I handwash anything I want to keep nice. Washcloths are getting frayed, towels look bleached or faded....and I am relating to my grandmothers on wash day. Sorry it's just more problems not solutions.

How do I fix my washer that only says 'sud' constantly and won't work at all? Whenever I try to start a cycle nothing happens. Whenever I push a button nothing happens. Please Help.

Hi please go to this above link, it is all explained at length what is going on and what to do.

This error code indicates that excessive detergent suds occurred during the cycle.
If a "Sud" or "Sd" error code is displayed, or if you can see excessive suds in the window:
There are too many suds in the washing machine. The washer will not be able to spin out water with the excess suds. When "Sud" or "Sd" is displayed, the washer automatically extends the rinse time to remove the excess suds. During this time, the washer pauses the tumbling and adds water for additional rinsing. This pause allows the bubbles in the suds to break. This pause and rinsing are necessary and may occur several times to eliminate the suds. See the animation below for more information.
  • If you see "Sud" or "Sd" with the Rinse status light on, the washer is in the process of removing suds. Let the cycle continue.
  • If you see "Sud" or "Sd" and the Cycle Complete light is on, the washer detected too many suds during the cycle and your load may not be fully rinsed or water may not be fully removed. You may want to select a Rinse/Spin cycle for further rinsing.

What does SUD mean?


SUD means a detection of suds in the machine. These machines are very sensitive to over sudsing. Try adding just plain water or bleach to break down the suds level. They say to use 1/4 of the detergent you would use in an older machine.

If you see "Sud" or "Sd" with the Rinse status light on, the washer is in the process of removing suds. Let the cycle finish

If you see "Sud" or "Sd" and the Cycle Complete light is on, the washer detected too many suds during the cycle and your load may not be fully rinsed or water may not be fully removed. You may want to select a Rinse/Spin cycle for further rinsing.

I put washing up liquid in mu cda dishwasher now it wont do anything it wont rinse


If the machine cavity is full of suds, use a 'wet-or-dry' vacuum to remove all of the suds possible, then run a washing cycle without dishes or detergent to flush the machine. With luck, the machine will be back to normal.

The dishwasher was full of soap suds but most of the water drain


Suds? If you use dishwashing detergent you shouldn't get suds. If a small amount of sink type dish soap is left on a dish before loading it into the dishwasher this can happen. I would use several rinse and drain cycles with the racks and dishes removed until the suds are gone.

Never use any type of liquid dish soap made for sinks. The same thing that makes suds in the sink will make even more in the dish washer.

Hope this helps!

Rinse aid used very fast and dishes not drying


Look for a blue or green streak on the door panel when you upen it to load the dishes. Does the washer sound different during the wash than it used to? If so your dispenser is leaking. This will also cause the water to suds up and not wash as well as it should. Start the washer with no detergent or dishes and let it run for 5 minutes, then open the door and see if there are a lot of suds in the water. Post back to let me know what you find.
