The Motor Control Unit senses a suds lock condition by analyzing the current draw on the drive motor. If "Sud" is displayed a potential Suds Lock is detected. This may signify a bad pump, an extra heavy load, excessive detergent, or excessive suds.

Possible Causes / Procedure

• 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 or any cycle.

What does 5ud mean 10 minutes from finishing 5 Ud displayed can't open door?


The SUD (not 5UD) code is displayed when excess foam is detected (possibly because excessive detergent is being used). If your machine does not cure itself, you may have to run an "Eco drum clean" cycle (if your machine has it) or a 90 degree cotton cycle with no detergent and no load.

I have a Samsung eco bubble WF1804WPU model that started showing the error message SUD. Any time it happens the machine stops washing as if paused and I have to press the pause button twice for it to start...


The SUD error indicates an excessive amount of soap suds in the wash. It will be difficult for the machine to rinse / spin all the soap out during the cycle, and may need to be run thru the cycle again (do not add any more detergent!).

Remedy:

Stop using regular detergents! Front loaders specifically call for "HE" (High Efficiency) detergents as they require less detergent and clean better with the reduced amount of water in these machines. Look for your favorite brand and select the one with the distinctive HE logo show below:

25390537-tg4qprwnexgxw1cywyhhxkqk-3-0.jpg

Use only the amount as directed on the bottle - do not use too much. Clothes should come out clean and soap free - and the SUD error should no longer appear - if it continues - double check the amount of detergent you're using as it is probably still too much.

Good luck!

Won't finish the wash cycle


Initially we 1)used less detergent and make sure its marked 'he' . extra soap suds initiates error codes. 2) ran white vinegar with no detergent to clear suds 3) opened, checked and cleared trap.
Everything worked for a time but codes would return or like you would not finish wash cycle until water line in back of machine was made rigid so there was no chance of water or sud backup. So far so good. Good luck.

Rl on the control panel


The "rl" (remove load) error code appears when you are running the "Clean Washericon1.png" cycle. You must not have a load of clothes in the washer during this cycle. Remove the clothes from the drum, and restart the cycle. The "Sud" error indicates that the detergent is over-sudsing. The Duet washer automatically combats this by reducing the amount of suds in the washing machine. Let the washer finish the suds-reduction steps. Use less detergent during the next wash cycle.

Maytag 3000 washer has error message SUD. What is this and how do I fix it. It occurs in the spin cycle every time I wash. I am using Tide HE detergent. It even does it when I use Zero detergent.


The SUD message usually indicates that the sensor detected excess suds and shut down the washer until the suds subsided. To my knowledge, Zero isn't an HE approved detergent so the amount you use has to be really tiny to avoid the SUD error.

With the Tide HE, you still may be using too much detergent. However, you should check the drain pump and outlet hoses. Sometimes a slow or blocked drain can trigger the error. There is often a filter at the drain to keep foreign objects that were left in the clothes from damaging the pump. Make sure that nothing is in this "coin trap". Have a bucket ready when you take apart the drain to catch the water left in the washer. The pump is accessed through the back panel. (Some front-loaders actually have an access panel so you don't have to remove the entire back.)

If you see excessive suds during the wash cycle, run the washer through a complete cycle while it's empty without using any detergent. This often will rinse out any detergent that may have been left from previous loads.

I hope this helps.

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.

Code letters of sud came up during last spin cycle what is this and how do I fix it it will not finish spin cycle and clothes are heavy and drenched


This is a Suds Detect error code. The following link explains the error and potential causes:

http://www.fixya.com/support/r3608687-sud_error

The number one cause of the error is from using too much, or the wrong type of detergent. You are required to High Efficiency (HE) detergent with these washers because the concentration is formulated for HE washers that use small amounts of water. Using the wrong type of detergent can also void any warranty you may have.

NOTE: HE detergent does not have a lot of suds, which often confuses consumers into thinking they aren't using enough detergent. With HE washers little to no suds if normal and preferred.

Secondary causes can come from something restricting the drainage system. Most notably, something lodged in the drain pump and/or drain hose(s). I've included a follow-on link that explains how to check the drain pump reservior if required.

Read through the link provided and let me know if you still have questions. I hope this helps you.
